I don't usually write reviews but I thought it was necessary .Priscilla is a very rare individual ,as in she doesn't just slap some makeup on and send you on your way .She takes the time to really transform you into your best self.She explained that doing makeup is a art and is her passion .You can definitely tell that when she does it .I had no idea how in depth the process could be .Priscilla educated me on things I had always wondered and no one at sephora ever knew the answer .I also like that she wanted to get to know me as a person not just another client .

I sought out Priscilla for my makeup for my birthday party .I loved how she made me look like a Victoria secret model .She set my hair into sexy waves and even gave me some tips for doing my own makeup. She was very professional and friendly .Everyone was giving me complements that night ! I am a client for life!

Noel showed up on time and with all necessary supplies. She knew I was on a tight time schedule so she had pre-selected colors/shades based on a picture I sent her to save time. Unlike other makeup artists she listened when I said I wanted light/natural looking makeup and did not overdo anything. My husband thought my makeup looked better than the salon I normally go to and she was extremely reasonably priced. I warned her in advance that my 16 month old would be with me during the appointment and it didn't seem to phase her when I had to take a minute to take care of my daughter. I was extremely satisfied and would definitely hire her again.

An expert with the brush! Noel did a great job with making me feel natural and fresh while still adding a bit of glam, which could be difficult for a fitness shoot. I'd had previous experiences with makeup artists who made the experience all about them but Noel made me feel like I was getting ready for a red carpet appearance! :))) I could tell that she genuinely cared about my opinions and the overall look of my pictures. She'll definitely be at my next shoot!

So the story begins, it was the day before New Years Eve I had everything ready- shoes (check), Dress (check), nails (check), Hair (check)…make up (OH NO)! So I started to panic, I am new to VA what am I going to do?!?! I decided to try ThumbTack to see if I could find a local makeup artist. I said "Jesus take the wheel and drive fast"!! Within moments Ms. Lisa Rose wrote me back. She provided an detailed over view of her services, price and weblink to view online portfolio. I was very impressed. She event accommodated my time request even though it was New Years Eve. She was extremely flexible. New Years Eve, I went to her home because she was booked up. I was greeted with a warm smile. Her room looked like a professional makeup studio. She talked with me about my skin type and what look I was trying to achieve. After a few moments, she went to work. We talked and laughed. She is a beautiful person inside and out. Throughout the process, she had me look at the mirror occasionally to make sure I was happy with the look she was creating for me. I was elated:) An 1.5 hours later, Lisa showed me the mirror one final time. I was so beautiful - I was speechless. Bottom line, if you are looking for quality no need to look any further. Lisa will take great care of you. I am scheduling another appointment with her next month for another event I am attending. I promise you will not be disappointed. Customer for Life!!! Thank you Lisa Rose!!

Lisa was incredible! She was one of the first makeup artist to respond to my request and she did an outstanding job! I was a little scared to hire a makeup artist that I've never worked with for such an important event but she killed it! She traveled to me, arrived 15 minutes earlier to set up and one hour later - my fiancé didn't recognize me. I would definitely recommend her services. Great job again!!

I can't even describe how perfect my makeup was. I've had several professionals do my makeup over the years and they have never gotten the look I want exactly right no matter how much I explain or provide pictures. Rose was the first artist to get it perfect. It was EXACTLY what I wanted. She was patient, asked questions, took her time and even agreed to come super early to accommodate the time of my event. I won't use anyone else from now on.

Carolyn did my 16 yr old daughter's formal makeup. She rarely wears makeup and had little skills. Carolyn arrived early and her makeup outfit and lighting was impressive. She was very easy going and had provided several photos in advance to give her some ideas. She went to work and was very good at providing just the look we wanted. We both were looking for something slightly glamorous but age appropriate. She nailed it! She worked up a custom lip color and left her with a supply to do touch ups. We were both pleased with work and service and give her our highest reviews. Thank you again, Carolyn!

Carolyn did makeup for my daughter for her homecoming dance. She was very professional, personable and knowledgable about her profession. She responded quickly to all messages I sent to her and was very easy to talk to at all times. She listened to my daughter's input and made some suggestions for her as well. My daughter absolutely loved her makeup for the evening and received many compliments on it from her friends. We were extremely satisfied with her work and would definitely use her again for other special occassions!

Carolyn did a wonderful job for my prom makeup! I was super happy with the end result. I've never worn more than just mascara and she was able to make my face flawless without making it feel like I had 10 layers of makeup on. We discussed which eyelashes would be best for me since I've never worn any before and she made a custom lipstick for me. Carolyn works diligently and beautifully. I recommend Carolyn to anyone who wants their makeup done on time and beautifully 😊😊

Nyssa was very patient with me, and made sure both my hair and makeup were exactly what I wanted for my wedding day! We took things step-by-step, and she did a great job asking questions and making recommendations as-needed. She is very knowledgeable about makeup and hair and can give you tips on products to use beyond your event or photo shoot, which I personally appreciate. On top of all that, she's incredibly responsive and sweet! Highly, highly recommend Nyssa if you want to feel beautiful, inside and out.

My sister and I had our hair and makeup done for my wedding, April 1st, 2017. Nyssa was wonderful. I had a troublesome area on my face that I had really been worried about. She made it disappear. I have never seen myself, nor have I ever felt as beautiful as she made me on my special day. My sister is going to hire her for her wedding in August as well. She is sweet and patient! She will not disappoint you, top notch. We loved her. Thanks again, Nyssa!!!! xoxoxoxoxox

We LOVED having Nyssa as our makeup/hair stylist. She arrived right on time and was ready to get started. She did the bride’s hair and makeup, the MOB’s hair and the MOG’s makeup. The Bride showed her a picture of what the she wanted and we were so happy that her hair looked exactly like she requested. Nyssa is a joy to be around and we enjoyed getting ready with her. She has a sweet, calm, stress free personality. Highly recommend her!
