    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MAKEUP ARTIST!
    Alicia Ortega is very talented. She did the makeup for my engagement photo shoot, along with the makeup for myself and my entire wedding party. She did an amazing job. I don't like it when makeup artists over-do my makeup which they usually always do, and Alicia made me look beautiful but I still looked like myself which is exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much, Alicia! You did an amazing job and I will definitely be contacting you for any future events! Highly recommend Alicia!

    Alicia was incredible!!!! She did my daughter's makeup for her Quinceanera and it stayed in all night right along with mine and everyone she did for the event. I have never been able to wear makeup and stay intact all evening. Hers did!!!! I will definitely use her again and recommend her always. Thank you Alicia for making us look great!

    Alicia did an amazing job with my wedding party's makeup! She came to the church, where we got ready, which was much more convenient than going somewhere to get our makeup done. I will definitely hire her again, should the need arise.

    Alicia is one of the sweetest persons I have had the pleasure of meeting!! I contacted her about her airbrush spray tanning services and she answered in a timely manner and was very flexible I had to reschedule several times because of my work.It was my first time getting a spray tan and she was very thorough and answered all my questions and even the day of the appointment she went over everything with me again. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease the tan was the PERFECT color!! no streaking at all I was worried about looking orange ,but the color she mixed up for me was perfect and it only enhanced my wedding pictures so I didn't look washed out in my white dress. I will definitely be contacting Alicia again for her services. Thank you Alicia!!

    Alicia did a wonderful job on makeup my wedding. She was on time and very accommodating to everyone's personal preferences. She did my makeup(the bride), 4 bridesmaids, and 3 mothers of the bride and groom. We were all very happy with the results. I would definitely recommend her if you are in need of a makeup artist!

    I found Alicia's business card at a local store and decided to call her to do my makeup for my friends prom without ever meeting her or seeing her work. I was very satisfied with my makeup and got many compliments. She was very friendly and professional. I am looking forward for her to do my makeup again for my prom.

    Alicia arrived on time and was so easy to chat with because she is so personable and friendly. I haven't really ever worn much make-up But new I wanted a make-over without looking made up. I told her I wanted to look natural and she did her magic all while having a pleasant conversation! I was very happy with my look and everyone else did too! Thank you for making me feel beautiful and like royalty! PS- her hair lady Jazmin is fantastic too!

    I was extremely satisfied with Alicia Ortega's make-up services! she did a wonderful job on me and my bridesmaids for my wedding. She showed up on time, was very professional, and listened to what style of make up we wanted. I would recommend her to anyone needing make-up for a special occasion.

    I just had my wedding on February 7th and I must say Alicia did a great job on my makeup. I'm a huge Tomboy and she did just an amazing job everyone was amazed about how much I looked so feminine. If I have another event that I needed to have make up done again I will most definitely give Alicia a call again.

    Alicia did my makeup for the Houston Consular Ball. She was on time and very professional. It took about an hour or so and she did a great job with the contouring, as well as airbrushing. I thought she did a great job overall with the makeup - she kept making sure that she listened to my thoughts and requests and walked me through everything she did. Overall, I had a great experience and the price was reasonable. The only thing that I would make as a suggestion (constructive criticism) is that she should have let me know that the fake lashes would have cost $10 extra. I probably would not have used them if I knew that was the case. I was under the impression that everything was included in the price that was quoted, so I was a little surprised with the added charge. It could have been my mistake (maybe she did mention it and I didn't realize it) but that could have been made clearer. That being said, I had a good experience with Alicia and would recommend her to others. Thanks.
