I booked a make-up lesson with Teresa so I could learn how to apply eye make-up correctly. Teresa showed me how to apply the make-up in such a way that it looked good, but was not overdone, and did not require a huge amount of time to apply. These were all criteria I had mentioned to her. She was extremely helpful, caring and understanding as to what I wanted. I felt like her services were tailored specifically to me and my needs.

I hired Esha to do my wedding makeup in addition to my six Bridesmaids, two Junior Bridesmaids, Flower Girl and both Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom and I could not have asked for a better makeup artist to take the lead on getting us glammed up and ready for the day! I will be the first to admit that I am the WORST at portraying what I want in my look when it comes to makeup but that didn't phase Esha at all. My big thing was that I wanted to look natural and still very me.. as a girl who doesn't wear a ton of makeup every day that can sometimes be a little harder when you get in front of someone who knows makeup only because my idea of "not a lot of makeup" and a professional artist's may not be the exact same interpretation but Esha and I got on the same page from the very start. Esha completely nailed it and brought my whole look together. I would 100% recommend a trial. I did my trial the morning of my bridal shower to see how I liked it, how it held up and what changes I wanted to make. Esha was so wonderful and open to my notes I made at the conclusion of my bridal shower day. I wanted a full to see it all and really pinpoint what I liked and what I would want to see a little differently. For example, I went with certain pictures for the trial and then realized my own ignorance in not understanding what I showed her was more of the smokey eye look.. so looking back on pictures from my bridal shower, my makeup looked incredible but it was too dark for what I wanted as my wedding day look. Following up with Esha was a breeze and I sent her a few more pictures and she instantly got on board with what I wanted.. explaining the difference in the looks I showed her. To me they looked the same until she pointed out what wasn't! The trial was SUPER helpful because I tried the airbrush and a certain lip color but the morning of the wedding I went with HD makeup (because I was LOVING how my bridesmaids were looking) and completely went a different route with lip color. Neither of those changes threw Esha off at all. She worked efficiently and was extremely calm and laid back the entire morning.. the high emotions of the morning didn't fluster her at all. For all my bridesmaids she made sure I told each of them that if they didn't like something, to speak up and she would very happily change it because her main concern was us feeling comfortable in our looks, not being personally offended by someone wanting to change something. From the mothers to bridesmaids, to my young junior bridesmaids and tiny flower girl.. she knew how to do each age and skin complexion without fail. I have to thank Esha for her patience with me because the week of the wedding I had a "panicked bride" moment and she handled it all with poise and reassurance that all was good. It rained on my wedding day (ALL day), there were tears (but she teaches you how to cry and not ruin your makeup, bonus!!) and I sweated my tush off on the dance floor and then continued the party downtown Annapolis and let me tell you this.. my makeup was as flawless at 3:00 in the morning as it was at 12 noon when my look was complete... just as Esha promised it would be! Cannot thank you enough for getting me wedding-day-ready and all 11 of the best women in my life looking and feeling amazing! You've got my recommendation and I look forward to having an excuse to hire you to do my makeup again in the future! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! When the first two words that come out of your groom's mouth when he sees you is "Oh Shit".. you know you're looking drop dead GORGEOUS! Wouldn't have happened without you, Esha!! I looked like a bride and felt like my true self. That was a major win in my book! *I have attached two photos taken off our online gallery.. They are not the full resolution though.. still waiting on our thumb drive so I apologize for that! Esha, I can send you full resolution pictures if you would like so you can share them later! :)

When Camille arrives at your door with her make up luggage and huge LED light, you know she is about her craft. In setting up her tools, she is fun and personable in discussing the look you want to achieve. Natural is my go to buy sometimes I want dramatic definition and a cat to make any feline jealous and Camille does both perfectly. I feel like a canvas and Camille is a painter always making sure that I am satisfied with each step she completes. She also offers great advice and tips for using products that I appreciate as my own skills have drastically improved. I'm always satisfied when Camille does my make up and usually booking her for my next event before she's even done.

Jamilah did my make up for my photo shoot & it came out flawless. She was so nice and patient, I was not sure the look I wanted and Jamilah killed it. She gave me a deep contour which was perfect for my shoot. I will always come to Jamilah for my make up needs, BOOK HER!

I could not have asked for a better expirience. All of my bridesmaids looked stunning and I got so many compliments about how incredible my makeup was. My make up also lasted all night leaving me worry free about running to the bathroom for touch ups. She was the only vendor who was on time and was so extremely professional and nice even through my pre-wedding meltdown. Thank you so much!!!

Caprice is amazing! I don't wear make- up very often at all, but when I do she is my go-to artist. I appreciate her energy and ability to enhance my features so it looks soft and natural still. Caprice's work is perfect no matter the occasion.

Ruben was amazing and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a make-up artist. He did make-up for me and 2 of my girls for my wedding. We received many complements on what a great job he did. The make up lasted all day...I didn't want to take it off by the end of the night 😉

My husband and I attend several formal functions during the year. I was concerned that my skin was beginning to show signs of stress and aging much too fast. Katie took me on as a client and I must tell you, the results are unbelievable! My skin responded to her skillful hands almost immediately! Everyone asked what I was doing that made me look refreshed and radiant! When I told them my secret was Katie, several of them made appointments with her. Now she's doing my make-up and I must tell you, she's THE best in the business and I highly recommend her. I've never looked quite so beautiful as I do since I began regular appointments with Katie.

Trisha was wonderful to work with! She was running a free trial for hair and makeup and I was so happy with the trial run that we hired her for the wedding day. She did my makeup for engagement photos and also the hair and makeup for the wedding (along with my mom and 3 bridesmaids). I love that she offers traveling services, it was so nice to wake up at the wedding venue and have the beautifying team come to us. :) I was very happy with my bridal look (loved the airbrush makeup) and everyone looked amazing. A huge thanks to Trisha for making us look beautiful on the big day!

Camelia was ready for me right on time and took me into her artistically decorated chambers. She made me feel comfortable and then carefully developed my ideas for her services. She worked with great sensitivity and care until my make-up was complete and I felt like a new woman. Camelia obviously has the ability of an artist. I hope she finds an excellent path for developing her talent and can find employment in a highly respected salon.

I highly recommend Alyssa's services and I look forward to working with her in the future!
