As we approached our wedding day on Oct 17th my then fiancé and I thought it would be nice to have someone do my Best woman and flower girl's makeup. After looking at a few makeup artist I loved how Winstead Studio stepped forward and was immediately available. Our makeup artist arrived at the hotel on-time and what amazing work. Both looked great and I couldn't have asked for better. Thank you so much Winstead Studios.

Fairy Jennabelle turned into Elsa from Frozen to do my daughters party. It was a total success.. All the kids loved her and also all the games and activities. The most special activity was when she did face painting. It was like creating art in the kids faces !!! She really wanted to make it a very successful party for my daughter no matter what. I will highly recommend her and we are already planning the next Mermaid party!!

If I could give Partyymagic 20 stars I would!!!! Mimi is Magic and her work is phenomenal. I have never had my face painted before so I was anxious to see the results once she started. She not only exceeded my expectations but was very professional. She painted my face in 30 minutes flat. I wore the makeup all day at work (12+hours) and had a great Halloween! I got so many compliments and even frightened some of my co-workers. She's everything you want in an artist friendly, patient, talented, and on time!

Erin was a really nice, talented makeup artist! She did a great job with the dark smokey eyes I wanted, was on time, and communicated quickly when I emailed her. My only suggestion would be to let people know what products you can offer for certain skin types- I have sensitive/acne prone skin (I had asked what she had and got a broad answer of "everything"). I ended up doing my foundation prior to her arrival Bc I did not know if she had one I could use and my skin breaks out at the sight of comogenic formulas! But overall she was great. I would use her again. Thanks Erin!

Dream Face Art provided face painting services for our Community Fall Festival. The artist was professional, was kind to all the children, and created fantastic face paint designs...the kids all looked great! We will definitely hire them again. Only suggestion would be for them to arrive and start set up 15 minutes prior to the event.

We hired Sam C. for face painting and balloon artistry services for our Community Fall Festival. The artists were both professional, kind to all the children, and created fantastic face paint designs. The balloon artist designs were so unique and often looked complicated. Absolutely what we were hoping for! We will definitely hire them again. Only suggestion would be for them to arrive and start set up 15 minutes prior to the event.

I could not have been happier with DC Elite Image. Teresa was accommodating (came to my home to do my makeup for a holiday party), super friendly and professional to work with - and I simply loved my results! I would recommend her without hesitation to any individual or organization needing a professional makeup artist. And I will certainly be a repeat customer!

Rhea is AMAZING! Her gift of working with children and creating fabulous artwork on their little faces was such a hit. She was a great addition to our annual party. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary of hosting our children's party. As this was a special year, our goal was to ensure that the children experienced the best event ever. Rhea contributed immensely to that goal. Rhea...THANK YOU does not seem like enough. For those that are looking for a quality artist/face painter for an event, I highly recommend Faces by Rhea.

Stephanie was simply AMAZING!!!! She arrived early and immediately started face painting and balloon making. She worked diligently the entire time; so much so that I had to make her stop and eat :) We had a princess/pirate party for our son & daughter and she stuck with my request to keep in line with the theme even when little ones begged for something else. Although I purposely limited designs to pirate mustaches & balloon swords for boys and princess designs& flower bracelet balloons girls she was still very creative and unique with her creations. She was AWESOME with the children..polite, professional..she truly was a hit and highlight of the party. Oh..and she's very reasonably priced!!! She's definitely got me as a repeat customer. Stephanie, Thank You SO much!
