I hired Priscilla as my makeup artist for my wedding in October .She made me look like a angel ! I got so many complements and I felt like a million bucks .She was very professional and you could tell she had a passion for what she does .
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!!
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!
Alisha did a phenonemal job with the hair and makeup for my bridal party this past Saturday. She delivered the look that I wanted-Old Hollywood and even added some touches to the hairstyle that I wanted to take the look up a level. My new husband is still talking about how fabulous me and my girls looked. I gave her very little notice and she came through!
Love, love, love Ralphanne! She did my wedding day makeup and makeup and hair for my bridesmaids. She had everything timed perfectly and we enjoyed the entire process. We were so happy with our looks. My girls felt like princesses and I felt like the Queen!
Angela is absolutely the best!!! She really has a passion for what she does!!! My daughter's prom pictures were absolutely amazing. I started getting phone calls the same day from other moms asking me about her makeup. She made sure my daughter was happy. If you or anyone you may know is looking for a extremely talented makeup artist contact Angela Holley please. You will not regret it!!
Iman scheduled me in last minute after my original makeup artist canceled on me. I'm so glad she canceled because Iman did a beautiful job on myself and my entire bridal party. I would recommend.
Diana transformed me into a beauty. I liked how she applied each makeup, she explained what she was doing and why. She recommended some great things for me which works. I left at ease. The makeup was spot on, I was pleased with it because I don't wear makeup everyday. I felt like a totally new person and everyone complimented how pretty I looked.
As I was preparing for my best friends wedding i freaked out when I remembered I hadn't found anyone to do my makeup!! I immediately seeked Kendra and she came through like a BOSS. I traveled from NC and Kendra found a location to make it convient so that I could make it back in time for photos for the wedding. The location was at a salon that was clean and welcoming. It took about 45 minutes for Kendra to complete my flawless look (lashes, brows, foundation, eye shadow, lips). She was prepared, she recommended products, she explained how you should use certain products. She was amazingggggg!!!!!!! On top of all that, her fee was affordable!!!! I received soooooo many compliments on my makeup!!! My makeup lasted for 17 hours. LITERALLY, and I did not want to wash it off!! I would DEF reach out to Kendra in the future to meet my makeup needs!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!
I would definitely use this service again! This makeup artist not only performs well, she educates the clients. With her experience you will be out of the chair feeling good about yourself and looking naturally flawless. Recommend 100%
Chynel has been doing my hair since December and everytime her work is exceptional!! She always exceeds what I’m expecting and I always leave loving my hair and/or makeup! There’s nothing she can’t do when it comes to catering to a woman’s beauty needs 😍
Very pleased with my results. Made conversation instead of just sitting there not talking like some other makeup artists. Made sure I was happy with every single step and application. Answered all my questions well and with respect.
Magical Solutions helped us make our event a smashing success! We asked for the help of six professional dancers to keep the party atmosphere at full throttle for more than 400 guests & they were fantastic! Dressed in period costumes, they were friendly to our guests and staff, on time and professional on all levels. I'd call on Magical Solutions again in a heartbeat!
I do hair and make up. I have been doing it for about nine years, now I love doing it. I can't see myself doing anything else anything you name I know how to do!
