Working with Erin for my Pamper Yo'Self event was perfect! She was able to create amazing looks for all the guests and was so professional! She even walked through a mini makeup application lesson for each guest, explaining what they can use and how to create products that they may not have. She tailored everything to each person's skin tone and complexion and the women looked gorgeous!

Teresa provided professional makeup instruction for my wife (and I learned a lot too!). Her knowledge, professionalism and pleasant demeanor made the entire experience delightful. She also followed up with specific notes on techniques, tools and materials that will be invaluable in the future. She is awesome!

Francisca is an amazing lady. She was extremely reliable, professional and prepared. I had a photo shoot where a model needed her makeup done. Francisca was quick to communicate with me prior to the photo shoot to reduce my anxiety. She also listened closely to the type of look that I was going for. Her kit and the way she applied the makeup was sterile and she was at the event very early (she is more than punctual!). I will definitely hire her again. What great talent. Thanks Fran!

Lynette was prompt, professional and FUN! Not to mention the absolutely awesome makeup services that she provided for our event. Lynette absolutely transformed us and her makeup choices could not have fit our occasion or our outfits, more perfectly. I would definitely call upon Lynette again with no hesitation. Thank you, Lynette, you were amazing!

Being a makeup lover myself, I knew that when choosing a makeup artist for my wedding I couldn't choose just anyone. All I can say is that Roma is truly amazing!! At my trial, she took the time to ask questions and find out exactly what I was looking for. As soon as she was done, I knew I wanted her to do my makeup for my wedding. When the wedding day came, she traveled to my hotel suite and did the makeup for myself as well as 5 others. She showed up early, stayed 100% on schedule, and was a true professional from start to finish. She is enthusiastic, funny, and so easy to talk to. My makeup came out AWESOME and I received so many compliments. I can't thank Roma enough for making me feel beautiful on such an important day. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her myself for future events!

My purpose for employing Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services was for an upcoming dance showcase. What stood out from the initial start of gathering proposals was the rapid response in professional messaging and the pleasantness in responding to my questions on the phone. Another area that caught my eye was the website which reflected the breakdown on services and the before/after photos. Our initial trial, I felt comfortable, she respectfully listens and decipher at times the direction I wanted to go with my makeup. Jayde wanted to make sure we had the look I was trying to attain so, the day of the event it would be as simple as 1, 2, 3 done! During the whole process, she offered flexibility when it came to scheduling and shared ‘DIY tips’. It was truly a very calm, stress-free day… She made me look and feel ‘Picture Perfect’ and the makeup lasted throughout the whole event. She truly did an amazing job and would recommend Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services to all. AA

Kali is unbelievably talented and professional, plus a great personality to have around in what may be an otherwise stressful or hectic environment. She did my wedding day hair and makeup, and I couldn't have asked for anything better. Kali was a trooper and did two hair trials with me because I changed my mind from an up-do to a romantic, boho-chic ponytail with intertwining braids, which she nailed off of one inspirational photo. She put in my extensions and was attentive and responsive to all my little requests along the way. She also talked me through several makeup options beforehand, and we settled on a natural yet beautiful look. Finally, Kali is professional, organized, and calm. She knows how long her work will take, sets a schedule that works with yours, arrives on time (in my case, at the crack of dawn!), and works diligently and pleasantly until the look is perfect. No stress, no muss, no rush. Just what I needed. Thanks to Kali, when people told me I was a beautiful bride, I truly believed them!!

Aubrielle was perfect! She applied makeup on my stepdaughter's face for her prom and she outshined each and every girl at the prom. Her look was nude with a splash of glam. Not only was she on time, applied the makeup well, and super nice, she educated me on the who, what, when, where, how, and why on applying and using makeup. Too bad she is located in Maryland because I am getting married in Chicago. I hope I am able to find someone just as good. In the meantime, going forward, I will be using her for any upcoming events. Thanks Aubry! :-)

If you want a natural or full glam look, maryam is your girl. Her background and experience is impressive, her knowledge in makeup is extensive, she is a professional and a truly down-to-earth person to work with. Whether she’s free-handing a certain makeup style or recreating an existing look from an inspiration picture, she always delivers in quality and satisfaction. What makes maryam’s makeup especially exceptional is her ability to cater to individuals by merging her own ideas and recommendations for a specific look or person with the specifities of clientele preferences. I have gotten my makeup done by maryam on multiple occasions so I can attest to her work and am able to honestly say that I’ve loved it every single time. I would work with her again any day and I would recommend her to anyone I know, regardless of complexion or undertone!

Gul and her partner were both very responsible and showed up on time for my wedding.. I knew that I could count on them to be there for my special day. From the minute I met Gul, she continued to respond to my messages very quickly and gave very helpful advice and answered any questions that I had. They are both very good makeup artists and only use the best quality makeup and products.. You can count on them to make you look flawless on your wedding day, and they will put in as much time as you need them to get the job done. If you want a makeup artist who will do any makeup look you like, use high end products, and give you only the best advice possible then you can count on these two ladies 100%. They will not let you down. I think more people should know about NGK studio because these two girls truly are experts in the work that they do and they are very hardworking they will not let you down. I promise. I got so many compliments on how flawless I looked the day of my wedding, and how amazing my hair looked that day. People couldn't stop raving over the fact that I just looked like I walked out of a movie.. I was very tired that day too(functioning on only one hour of sleep and they were somehow able to transform me into a celebrity) You will look amazing too on your wedding day four sure=) =) I am usually very picky with who I decide to do my makeup, but there was just something about this girl that I could tell she would do a fantastic job and I was right. Spread the word, these girls are experts!!! Sincerely, Dana

Judith and Jossi are kind and professional, and it was fun to have my trial hair and makeup done by them. I only had vague ideas of what I wanted for my updo and makeup, but these artists did their magic and I was amazed by the outcome. I trust them completely with my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup on my wedding day.

Blanche's makeup skills are top notch. I signed up for the makeup tutorial and she was extremely patient and a very effective teacher. She could be a celebrity makeup artist - that's how good she is. I can't wait to sign up for another session with her.
