This review is way over due. I can't express how lucky I felt to have stumbled upon Angela Tam Makeup Team on yelp page 4 months prior to my wedding. She is by far one of the best makeup artist I have had do my makeup, she is very talented and pays close attention to details.... Read More I've had four different makeup artists do my makeup and hair for my Indian Wedding with South Asian Bridal Makeup. The makeup from the other artists were either too dark and bold for my taste or they were too muted and seemed like something I can do. Angela Tam really listened to what I had to say about the look I was going for and truly delivered. Angela created just the perfect Smoky Eye with a hint of Color to created the perfect look for all three events over 2 days, Sangeet, Hindu Ceremony and Reception. She designed just the perfect combo for all 3 of my wedding dresses. I got married on Sept of this year, and was one of the hottest day of the season. My hindu ceremony were outdoor at noon under the hot sun. I was beyond concerned that the makeup would melt away before I even had a chance to walk down the aisle. But this didn't happen, the makeup stayed the whole day, until Angela came back to create the 2nd look for my Reception. Angela's has the best technique in Indian Bridal Hair Styles. She created three very different hair styles for all 3 of my events, each has a unique element to enhance the dresses. Angela was able to create a beautiful hair design that really hold up the Extra Heavy Indian Dupatta Veil for my Hindu Ceremony, AMAZING! I also to mention, that Angela's Makeup Team had also done an excellent job on all 8 of my bridesmaids, and 5 family members. Every one was very beautiful and very satisfy. I would highly recommend Angela Tam for your Indian South Asian Wedding!

If I could give 6 stars, I would! You cannot go wrong with Angela Tam and her team! I am not just saying this because I just got married and still going through wedding high.

I used her services for my sister's Indian Wedding and I absolutely loved the results. My makeup was flawless and my hairdo actually stayed intact the entire day, which is impossible for my pin straight coarse South Asian hair. I booked her way in advance for my big day and throughout the 1 years of planning, I made several changes to the contract ( adding a lot of people, changing the timeline..etc) for my 3 days of Indian Wedding Celebrations. At no time did she seemed frustrated or made me feel uncomfortable, even though I personally was annoyed with myself for submitting her through those changes. She is always very professional and prompt to reply to any questions you may have. On the day of the wedding, she showed up early and was all ready to go and deliver the service within the agreed time frame ( actually, with some time to spare!). It was the same way for my sister's wedding, so clearly that's just how professional she is! Some reviewers say that she is pricey but I actually disagree. If you ask around, professional makeup artists charge a lot more and that's not including hair. I find her price very reasonable in comparison to other vendors and it is a guaranteed satisfaction! I know for sure that if I just tell her to surprise me with a makeup/hairdo, she will do an incredible job. You can't go wrong with Angela Tam and her staff. Thank you so much for making me beautiful on my special day! I could not have been more pleased with the results!

Angela Tam's team is truly the best, elite hair/makeup vendor in Southern CA. If you are a bride to be, and want to look like a beautiful, blushing bride on your wedding day, schedule a consult with Angela ASAP!!! I must admit, when I first came to see Angela, I was a... Read More skeptic. I didn't understand WHY anyone would want to spend so much money on hair/makeup, so I did my share of "shopping" around. I talked to various other makeup artists, and even booked a trial with someone else, and I was just not sold by any of them. Then I remembered Angela. I reached back out to Angela about 5 months prior to my wedding day and needless to say, since Angela's so popular, she told me she was already booked :( However, she told me a few of her master artists were still available, and sent me their portfolio. I looked thru all the photos and decided I wanted to book with Denise and that was honest to God, the best decision ever. I did my trial with Denise not long after I found out she's available for my wedding day and Denise was really sweet :) I even invited one of my friends who is a makeup guru to join me at the trial...she had a lot to say, lol! Denise was patient with the both of us - she offered her advice as a professional but really listened to my wishes as her client. She made me feel at ease - she was good at both hair and makeup, which apparently is really hard to find, but a common skill set for Angela's Team :) Needless to say, I was super blown away by Denise that I booked her right away! On my wedding day, Denise and her assistant arrived on time at the hotel and went to work. Both Denise & her assistant made me and my bridal party feel at ease :) I felt like a beautiful bride and was also very happy to see all my girls and my mom so done up and radiant! I cannot thank Denise enough for coming through for me!!!

Somehow amidst all the wedding planning to dos I somehow ended up without a make up artist with less than two weeks to my wedding. As complete panic set in I was desperate to find someone but I didn't want to sacrifice quality. I came across Angela Tam's information on yelp... Read More and after a satisfying perusal of her portfolio I emailed her hoping with fingers crossed that she would be available. Contrary to all odds she was available and I had a make up artist. I was very nervous despite the rave reviews she had and her beautiful portfolio. Due to my last minute booking I wasn't able to have a trial and we were only able to communicate via email and pictures prior to the wedding day. I do not wear a lot of make up on a regular basis and was a bit intimidated by the large rolling case she brought with her. However, I should have never worried. Angela is a true professional fast and efficient she had me looking my best in an hour flat. Once everything was done and revealed I was SO happy with the result. I've never looked better. She gave me an amazing look that was elegant and natural and beautiful. She even convinced me to do fake eyelashes which I didn't think I needed but after seeing them I can't imagine my look being complete without them. I am truly grateful to her for the amazing work she did and for making me look the most beautiful bride on my wedding day.

Two weeks before the wedding, I had to add 4 bridesmaids to get their hair and makeup done and she accommodated them. Everyone was complimenting our makeup. We all felt beautiful that day. My hair and makeup was different from my preview but she didn't miss a beat when I asked her to change it on the wedding day and it came out exactly how I wanted. She was easy and fun to work with.
