Marisa did my makeup for both my bridal portraits and my wedding day and did an AMAZING job! Marisa is very talented and really listened to what I wanted and what my girls wanted and followed through 100%. Everyone in my bridal party looked so natural and beautiful! Not only is Marisa an amazing makeup artist, she is very professional, and personable! My bridal party and I had a lot of fun with her the day of my wedding. I am so glad I found her for my big day and cannot wait to hire her again! Marisa will not disappoint you!

Nicole is very nice and professional. We wanted Korean style makeup and she actually took time to study the tutorials I sent to her. Of course she did a fantastic job for me and my girls on the wedding day. I definitely recommend her to every lady out there who wants to hire a professional makeup artist for your special day!

I'm a professional photographer for Bivio Photo and recently hired Nik on a photo shoot. I definitely thought her work was amazing and she is a highly proficient makeup artist. An accomplished, professional and reliable makeup artist is very important to a photographer. Even more importantly, Nik was very engaging and enjoyable to be around. We had a really fun shoot/session and I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

Mary was fantastic! She provided services for my daughter and her bridal party last Saturday at the Hotel Alsace in Castroville, Texas. Mary transformed my already beautiful daughter into a GODDESS! The bridal party also looked beautiful and radiant. Not only did Mary and her associate did a great job on everyone's makeup but also did a marvelous job on all of the girl's hair! Mary definitely knows her craft! I love the way that she had small lip glosses for each girl in their shade that she applied to their lips to complete the look. She even did the makeup for the mother of the bride who was not originally a part of the package and didn't charge. I will definitely recommend her to anyone that has a makeup artistry need and will utilize her myself in the future!

I hired Très Unique Beauty Lounge to do makeup for a formal evening event. I requested a look for a black dress that would stand out and different. She was able to give me a stunning look that matched the hidden tint of my dress. I received compliments all evening from guests at the event. The lady who did my makeup was professional the whole time. The manager, ToCarra Gongob, responded quickly to my messages on Thumbtack and accommodated me at a last min notice. I highly recommend using Très Unique Beauty Lounge.

Ana did my hair and makeup for an event and she was absolutely phenomenal! I showed her a picture of how I want my makeup and she did it better than the picture. My hair stayed in place for both day and night festivities. She accommodated me and drove to my place without having to charge a fee and she was so kind! She had all the right makeup tools in case you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin etc. - she comes prepared!

She was very professional and was early to my makeup appointment. She did my makeup the way I wanted it which was ROARING 1920's and my makeup roared ! Also she did my makeup with out a trial makeup run and it came out exactly the way I wanted it bold . She also did my nieces makeup on point to what I wanted 1920s theme. Furthermore we got mink eyelashes that where beautiful and stayed on no matter what . She also did both our makeup in a reasonable time and had everything we wanted and needed with her. I would recommend her for sure. Thank you again Tammi

Chibbi is fantastic. I've had my makeup done by him a few times now and I have an absolute blast every time he does it. He's a fun and funny person who prioritizes making people feel comfortable. I've had experiences with other makeup artists where it was just really awkward and uncomfortable, but Chibbi makes it fun and light. Also, he isn't bothered by questions! If you ask him about specifics about products or techniques, he's great at explaining. He's really gentle with his brushes and doesn't skip the skin care portion of the process. Communicate with him -- tell him what you want, or even how you want to feel, and he'll make it happen!

She is absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend her to anybody who need a makeup artist. She was very punctual, she showed up at the time she said she would. Which is very important because I hate when people are late and she wasn't. Her communication was great and she really wanted to understand my vision for my fashion photoshoot. She really understood what I was wanting with the photos I sent her. When she arrived I didn't say anything to her specific to the make up. I just let her do her thing and she did the makeup spot on to what I wanted. All in all she was very professional, sweet, high quality work and her response time was almost immediate. I will definitely use her again!

So, Ivi is my sister and she is so great all around. You must be thinking I am biased, and maybe I am to some degree but seriously, Ivi rocks at she does! She has been styling and coloring my hair for 10+ years and I always trust her to take my vision and make it a reality. She has an artistic eye that is just not present with other stylists I’ve had. Ivi did my hair and makeup for a personal photo shoot in 2011 in which she also photographed me. She is amazing at multi-tasking and took her time to make sure all was perfect for what she wanted to achieve. Of course I asked her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in 2014 (and wish she could have photographed it as well) and I could not have been happier with the results. Whatever the event, Ivi will always have your back and make sure your expectations are met- whether hairstyling, hair color, makeup, or photographing your special day. She strives to be the best at what she does, and I believe she succeeds. Here are some pictures of her work:

Annalisa R. is AMAZING!!! Not only is she talented but she gave me exactly what I wanted for my birthday look! I got so many compliments about my makeup that night and it all stayed in place till I had enough of my fun. She was very nice, made sure to ask me what I wanted, and made me comfortable about the look before we started. As I have stated before the end product was just great and love that she is not scared to play with any colors!( this is important to me because a true makeup artist doesn’t have just one look they can do all) I will continue to go to her for any event I have in the future and would highly recommend this beautiful gal!

Michelle is an expert in makeup, she's been doing this type of thing since the youtube days prior to beauty bloggers being a big thing. So I knew when I was having a boudoir shoot that she would do an amazing job! Not only is she a canvas unto herself to experiment with different looks, but she also takes special care into making sure the canvas she transforms you into is what you had envisioned as well. Michelle is always professional, punctual, and provides a really detailed level of work that is both beautiful and unique to the client. If there are any questions you have in regards to pre-emptive skincare prior to makeup application she is very responsive in guiding you in the right direction. Working with Michelle is always a pleasure, she's creative, constantly growing her book of work, and personable!
