Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

Erin did my daughter, sisters and cousins make up for my daughters Sweet Sixteen. When I saw how Beautiful the makeup was applied, I was instantly jealous..lol..because she was supposed to do mine, but I couldn't make it to the hotel in time :(. My family said she was pleasant and fit right in. It did not feel like we hired out, but instead, a family member was enhancing her beauty. I am sorry for the late review You did an AMAZING job, Erin! <3

She was the perfect person to be with my friends and I as we prepared for my wedding as she is patient, detail-oriented and kind. The value of her work is tremendous and I would recommend her 100% to anyone!

Mia was amazing! I hired her to do makeup for the bridesmaids in my wedding. I was a bit nervous about booking someone from the internet without meeting her for such an important day - so we arranged an in home trial. She came to me, did my makeup and was awesome. She has a great sense of humor and definitely calmed my fears. On the day of the wedding, she showed up calm and prepared - my bridal party had all different types of skin tones and facial types and she made each one look beautiful. She did lashes on those that wanted them and it made SUCH a huge difference in the pictures. She was a wonderful makeup artist and I would definitely recommend hiring her for your event!!

I never normally write reviews but I was so impressed. She made all of us feel special and beautiful. Most makeup artist only do makeup one way( which I hate) but Jaydes makeup capibilties and talents were able to stretch from my daughter (13) who's makeup was very beautiful and age appropriate to my Great grandmother(81) who's makeup was light and elegant. But most importantly my husbands jaw was on the floor. Lol.. THANK YOU SOO MUCH.

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!

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

I feel very lucky that I met this wonderful artist. She is on point at what she does- fabulous make up! Kendra is much experienced and is very insightful, smart and has excellent interpersonal skills, which is very important in this industry. She is punctual! Long story short, I highly recommend Kendra and I will definitely keep going back to her.

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.

She listened to exactly what kind of look I wanted and constantly made sure I liked it. My makeup looked so flawless and she didn't even charge me half as much as other makeup artists. Definitely will be going back to her!
