Amazing! Best wedding decision I made! Genica came out to Hacienda Vargas in Algodones for no additional charge. I am not a girly girl so I didn't feel confident doing my own make up.

I was recommender to Genica by our photographer after my first makeup vender did not work out. I do not live in Albuquerque and only had one day left in town.

I feel so blessed to have met Genica and to have had her doll me up for my wedding! She's every girl's dream makeup artist in that she can make you look like the best version of yourself.

Genica is AMAZING!!! I hired her for my wedding. She did my grandma's hair, my mom's hair and makeup and of course my hair and makeup.

Genica helped to ease my wedding nightmares!! Seriously. I was having a lot of wedding anxiety dreams and once I hired her, they stopped. She did a fansastic job with my hair and make-up (I couldn't believe that the waves she did in my hair stayed ALL day and all night... Read More long!!!). The extensions that I brought to her looked amazing too, completely natural. She also did a wonderful job of hair and make up for my mother and she did hair for my maid of honor and three flower girls. Everyone was happy and looked fabulous!!

Genica is AMAZING. I am not always great at articulating what I want in my hair and makeup, but it wasn't hard for Genica to nail it right away. I absolutely love how it turned out for my wedding day. On top of that, because she comes to you, it made it very convenient to get... Read More ready with my friends in a relaxing atmosphere.

This lady is phenomenal. Let me start off by saying that I had a sunrise elopement. This meant Genica had to start my hair and make up at 4:45am, and she did so without complaint! My trial was really fun. She somehow managed to do a great job on my makeup even though I was... Read More talking the whole time, and she was open to anything I wanted to change, which wasn't much. The morning of, I decided I wanted to stack my lashes, and she did so with ease, She did a beautiful job on my hair and makeup. Both lasted through tears, a nap, and into the first evening of my honeymoon. What I am even more thankful for is that she did an excellent job of helping me stay calm! The morning of was my first time seeing the flower crown I ordered from a local florist, and upon opening it, I was near panic mode. It was NOT what I wanted at all, and there was no time to get a new one. Genica was really sweet and reassuring about it. She kept telling me that we would make it work, and it would be fine. I did end up having issues with the crown during the ceremony, but for her part, she helped me hide what I didn't like under my hair and kept me from freaking out! I am so thankful I got to work with Genica. She has a beautiful spirit, and she was the perfect fit for my day! (:

There are seriously not enough words to describe how grateful I am to have found Genica to do my wedding hair & makeup. She not only is crazy talented at what she does, she is also a beautiful person (inside & out!), and her calming presence on the wedding day was invaluable.... Read More She was flexible, on-time, and just full of "yes" - I didn't have a finalized headcount of friends and family who wanted H/MU until a few days before the wedding, and she was still able to accommodate with the right number of amazing assistants. From the beginning, she was super responsive and helpful in answering all my questions. She took time out of her busy schedule to come to my house for the trial run (something I'm SO glad we did - even though we went with a slightly different style on the day of the wedding, it was helpful to get an idea of what does and doesn't work...and getting to spend more time with this awesome lady was an obvious plus!). She was open to my comments, but then also gave her professional advice when I didn't know what I wanted (and as someone who is not used to wearing proper makeup and having fancy hair, I definitely needed that). On the day of the wedding I was way more nervous than I expected to be, and Genica gave me all the quiet I needed as she worked her magic on me. This quiet time was perfect for setting me up to be present for that special day, and her mad beauty skills made me feel so beautiful and confident the whole day long. And I don't mean to put him on blast, but just to give her full credit, the groom totally cried happy tears when he saw me ;-P

I can't say enough nice things about Genica. I was very nervous when I started the process of finding a make up artist for my big day because I hardly wear any make up. Thankfully my awesome photographer sent me Genica's way with a great referral. After my first correspondence... Read More with Genica I could tell how sweet and genuine she is.
