Linda made me literally look gorgeous. She was patient, listened to what “look” I wanted, and took her time—I never felt rushed. She is a very, very good makeup artist. You’ll look like a model when she’s done

Dawn, Dawn, Dawn!!! Amazing and very talented. You can tell she loves what she does. She is very patient, attentive and honest. Dawn was a gift from my girlfriend Betty who I can't thank enough. I was very stressed and I was over trying to find a makeup artist to can work with darker skin complexions. Well, Betty worked her magic and gave me Dawn last minute. Day of my trial, first thing I noticed was that Dawn washed her hands prior to touching my face. At that very moment I knew she was going to be my makeup artist. She gave me skin care advice and products to use on my skin up until the wedding. Where they do that at????!! To top it off Dawn drove to Galveston Texas for light light light bridal makeup, whereas any other makeup artist would have told me I'm wasting their time. She worked with me to perfect the look I wanted day of. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I can't boost enough about her quality of work! If you are looking for a makeup artist I truly and definitely recommend Dawn. She is the truth!!!! My pictures prove the type of work she can do!

Lara Toman was so sweet and supportive with my preferences for my bridal group! I met Katherine (forgive me if I misspelled her name) during my makeup trial, and she did a fantastic job on blending my acne-prone skin with naturally subtle but noticeable colors. I was disappointed that she wasn't there on my wedding day when confirmed she'll be there, but Lara ended up doing my makeup and she didn't disappoint! Basically there were 2 hairstylists and 1 makeup artist there all ready to go. The makeup crew was very patient with my mother, who is, as much as I love her, can be hard to please at times so she had her makeup "tweaked" three times. Plus an unfortunate event happened right before the wedding, so my mother was being discouraging WHILE I was getting my makeup and hair done. Thankfully, Lara and her team were very encouraging throughout my session. They even stayed longer than they should've. That meant so much to me, because my night was amazing from there onward. I highly recommend going with Empire Faces for wedding events. Our makeup came out great in our professional photos!

Fe is awesome! She did my sisters and bridal party makeup for her wedding. We were really impressed with Fe professionalism but most importantly she beat our face! The best part was how radiant and natural everyone looked. We were beautiful. I highly recommend Fe for anyone needing a makeup artist.

I had gotten my makeup done by Vannessa, and the experience was very enjoyable, especially since it was the first time I had makeup done by someone else. It wasn't awkward like I anticipated it to be, and she kept a nice mood going on, making sure I wasn't uncomfortable with anything. The end result was exactly what I had in mind, and I was very satisfied with the work quality. I had also seen some of her other works, and it is absolutely stunning! I would definitely recommend her wether it be for makeup or henna.

Sandra gave me a makeup tutorial that covered a progression of makeup techniques from daily wear to a night out. Leading up to the appointment she confirmed and was easy to reach. She arrived on time and well equipped with lighting and makeup. She was very patient and kind, taught me correct application methods, and explained various tips to correct my application errors. She used a combination of my products and hers and made economical product recommendations for items I did not have. She did not rush through the lesson and made me feel very comfortable practicing techniques. I highly recommend Sandra if you want learn about makeup application and/or if you want a professional makeup artist for a special event.

Jen has done my 17 year old granddaughter's makeup for special events like homecoming dances and photography. She is a real artist with her paints and brushes. She knew how to give her such an amazing look while complimenting her natural beauty. Jen is the first person I would go to when it is important that I look my best.

Working with Brittany was very easy and pleasant. She really listened my ideas what I want for my wedding. A couple weeks before my wedding she did Highlights and Keratin treatment that I absolutely loved. My damaged hair were shiny and healthy again! On the day of the wedding Brittany came earlier to set all the equipment, so we wouldn't be in a hurry. She curled my hair, and used her own hair extensions for more volume. She made a very romantic look with low updo, and light lavender eye makeup. She even had time to do hair for mom as well. Everyone was happy, and I received many compliments on my hair and makeup! I would definitely recommend Brittany for any special events or wedding!

I have relied on Alicia several times to do my makeup, and have been happy with the result every time. She did my makeup, and the makeup of my mother and bridesmaids, on my wedding day. She did a wonderful job of paying attention to each of our preferences and made us all feel beautiful on the big day. I highly recommend Alicia whether you need makeup done for a special event, or just a night out!
