Wedding and Event Makeup

Rafa was an excellent hair and makeup artist! She was very timely in her responses and was always punctual to all our appointments. It was very windy and rainy on the day of our engagement session, but the hairstyle she gave me lasted through all the cold and rain! She is very hardworking and catered exactly to my requests for my wedding hair and makeup. Everything was perfect and I didn't need to worry about a thing! Even on our very tight morning schedule, she was able to complete all the services to perfection. I was extremely impressed by not only her professionalism, but also her kindness and easygoing personality. Thank you Rafa!

Rafa did a great job with my hair and makeup for my maternity photoshoot. She was very friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. She truly captured exactly what I wanted asking me about my dress colors and preferences in order to make my makeup look just right. I would definitely go back to her again!

Rafa was wonderful can’t recommended her enough. My makeup was exactly what we discussed and lasted all day for my outdoor elopement. She also applied color corrector to my husband’s face as he had a bad eczema outbreak. This really helped our pictures. Would happily use her services again!
