Reviews From Our Brides
" I would wholeheartedly recommend Angela of Embellir Artistry for anything hair and makeup related! After reading many positive reviews on several wedding sites, I contacted Angela and she was able to fit me in for a trial run that weekend, which was very important since I only had 4 weeks before the wedding.My first impression was that she was very professional and had a good understanding of how to make each person look their best. She took my opinions and example photos into account, but was not afraid to assert her expert opinion as well. As a person who prefers a more natural look, my primary concern was looking overly made up. (If I had it my way, I would swipe on some mascara and be good to go for the wedding.) During the trial run, Angela encouraged me to go beyond my comfort zone and try adding more colors so that the photographs would come out really well. And in the end, I’m really glad I took her advice because the end result was exactly what I was looking for – a natural look that accentuated all my features. Overall, I couldn’t have been happier. The makeup and hair lasted all day long, Angela was prompt, skillful and professional and her services were in my price range."
"Loretta came to do my wedding make up and hair at my hotel. She arrived promptly and had clearly paid attention to the emails I had sent with ideas about my style. She was professional but also friendly and chatted easily with myself and my husband. She kept an eye on the time and was finished and tidied up by the agreed hour. My make up felt light and stayed on flawlessly all day and night. I loved my little bag of tricks to touch up my lipstick and re secure my hair but never needed to use it! Thank you so much for your fantastic service!"
" Three Words: Professional, Perfection and Beautiful... that pretty much sums up my experience with Angela for my wedding. I got married at a little stone elizabethian church in Forest Hills set against the backdrop of a wintery white cold day in February, For my makeup, Angela chose to highlight my natural colors and to enlighten my face. You hear horror stories about wedding makeup artists but not Angela, my makeup was done in 30 minutes, she then did my mom, the bridesmaids and everyone had a clean, flawless look. I would recommend her to any bride for any style of wedding, she can really do it all."
"Angela and Loretta did the makeup for me, my wedding party and my mother. We were all thrilled with how our makeup looked. Angela and Loretta were so quick, yet our makeup stayed on all night long even though it felt like 100 degrees during our outdoor afternoon wedding. Their value cannot be matched and when one of my bridesmaids was running late Loretta put a little makeup on my grandma at no charge! They are great ladies and really know how to give a flawless wedding look!"
"Loretta did an amazing job for my destination wedding in Aruba! I was really nervous picking a makeup/hair artist - those who have oily skin like I do know that heat and sun can be your worst enemies! Normally, I wouldn't care but I definitely did not want to look greasy in all my wedding pictures. She did a fantastic job and my makeup stayed on for the whole night - I kid you not! My photographers even commented on it. I think the ultimate test was when the best man tossed me into the water (wedding dress and all) and my makeup did not move AT ALL. So yeah, you can say I pretty happy about being able to continue to greet me guests without having my makeup melt away from the ocean water.
She did a makeup and hair trial for me prior to my Aruba trip. From that, she determined what I wanted from the pictures I showed her. I really appreciated her honesty. Sometimes ppl show pictures of stars not realizing that skin tone and face structure really makes a difference. She took what I showed her and added to it to fit my darker skin tone and face structure. I was happy that she stopped whatever she was doing to listen to what I wanted and she wasn't afraid to put in her own opinions too. She was also encouraging me to tell her what I like and don't like as she was working on my hair and makeup. I was very happy with the end product and also appreciated that she took into consideration that I have sensitive acne-prone skin and tried to use oil-free products. Surprisingly, I didn't feel like I had any makeup on at all!
I ended up asking her to do my Aruba wedding day hair and makeup and also my hair and makeup for my Thai water ceremony here at home. Again, no regrets at all! A few of my guests already took a few of her business cards for themselves!"
"Angela is great. Unlike some make-up artist who always assume they know better, she will listen to you and what you want. She arrived exactly on time which is so important because some of my vendors didn't. I told her my schedule and I felt they adhered to it perfectly - very important on strict timeline of the wedding day. Angela even came to my house for a trial and brought some hair accessories which I liked so much and she agreed to sell them to me for an unbelievably cheap price. Overall, would recommend to all my friends getting married."
" I definitely recommend the team of Embellir! They came highly referred to me, they met and exceeded my expectations. The makeup was flawless and tailored to my specifications and very fitting to my personality. The hair was immaculate. I was a little clueless but they were able to create a style on the spot (during the trial & recreated for the day of) that I loved! Thank you for making me and all my girls look so beautiful and completing my perfect wedding day!"
