Sophia was so sweet and so talented I couldn't imagine using anyone else. She makes you feel very comfortable right away and like you are spending time with a friend you've known forever. Sophia did my hair and makeup along with my 3 bridesmaids, my mother and even did my... Read More grandmothers makeup even though it was a last minute add-on. Everyone loved their makeup and was happy with the way it turned out especially my grandmother who wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor. My eyes turned out dramatic and my lashes were gorgeous!I felt so beautiful and it stayed on all night even with me crying. Sophia did more than what was asked of her even when we forgot to put my veil on and Sophia had already left, she turned right around and rushed to fix it so I wouldn't be late. She even calmed me down during that melt down, I somehow thought I would miss my own wedding and she calmed me and got me laughing again. I would definitely recommend her she was the best!

In a word, Sophia is amazing! She did my make-up for my wedding day and, in hind sight, I wish I would have had her do my make-up for our engagement shoot as well. Sophia is a true professional. At our consultation, she asked a lot of questions to get a good feel for what I... Read More was looking for. Being someone who is slightly afraid of doing my own make-up and not always sure of what I'm looking for, Sophia was also wonderful about offering suggestions when I asked for them that fit in perfectly with a look that I was not only comfortable with, but ecstatic about. Sophia is highly professional, very friendly, and extremely relaxed while she works. My make-up was done very early in the morning on my wedding day and Sophia set the upbeat mood for the entire day. When she was finished, my face looked perfect and it stayed that way all day! I would highly recommend Sophia to anyone looking for a make-up artist! You will not be disappointed!

I first met Sophia when she was refered to me by a friend who had used her for several photo shoots. The first time Sophia did my makeup was for our engagement shoot last fall and I was blown away by her artistry! I'm very particular about my makeup and Sophia truly listened and...

When it came to my wedding this past June, of course, Sophia was my girl! She did all 6 of my bridesmaids, my mother-in-law, myself, my husband and my father-in-law. Whenever people see our wedding photos or video, the first comment is almost always "You look so beautiful!". Not only is Sophia an incredible artist, but she is also an amazing person. She has a gift with people and can put anyone at ease with her gentle spirit and calming demeanor. I'm definitely a client for life and will always consider her a friend!

I look at pictures now and think my hair and makeup was better than I could have dreamed!

I met Sophia while I was shopping at the Cerritos mall. She was promoting some makeup at Sephora, and I thought she worked there and I needed a consult.

I've known Sophia since grade school but lost touch with her after we graduated from high school. I am so blessed to have reconnected with her 10 years later!! Yes, she does great makeup and hair...all the other reviews about her say how great she is at it. She actually flew... Read More up to Seattle for my wedding and did everyone's makeup, from my 13 yr old niece to my 75 yr old grandma. She also does phenomenal bouquets if you happen to be up late the night before your big day and need her help :) and she can pin a veil in your hair so that even though it's really windy it won't move an inch. But all that is NOTHING compared to how she makes you feel...and on my wedding day she knew exactly how to keep me calm and happy and excited and focused on myself. Sophia is a wonderful friend, a talented makeup artist and a truly beautiful soul!!
