    AMAZING artistry and professionalism - simply THE BEST!

    Russell was the very first vendor I booked for our wedding (more than a year out). I met Russell years ago and ever since then, I knew I wanted him to do my makeup for our wedding day. Russell has an amazing way of applying makeup so it looks natural, but dramatic enough for pictures. You feel like yourself, but just an elevated version. We had the pleasure of not only working with Russell, but also Hitomi on our big day, and I cannot say enough good things about the both of them. They both do an absolutely beautiful job with makeup application, and they also bring so much more. Russell and Hitomi created a fun, calm, and positive environment for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom and mother-in-law. It's so important to surround yourself with positivity while you're getting ready, and they provided just that. Russell and Hitomi calmed the nerves I had throughout the day and kept me laughing. I can't wait to hire them again for another event, and several of my bridesmaids already plan to hire them in the future too. Russell and Hitomi, thank you so very much for making me and my girls feel beautiful and for being such amazing and wonderful people. Forever grateful for the both of you and can't wait to work with you again!

    1makeupman is the BEST

    Russell and his team provided the best wedding day makeup services I could have imagined. He and Hitomi were rays of sunshine on a hectic morning. Their upbeat playlist and jokes kept my girls smiling and laughing all morning. Russell made everyone feel comfortable and happy and was key in keeping our morning schedule on track as well. He and Hitomi are true artists - everyone was in awe of their makeup. Everyone's natural beauty was enhanced and the makeup looked fabulous in photos. He was also extremely flexible - he was able to do light makeup for two flower girls and a few touchups for the groom with zero notice on my wedding day. Definitely ask him about services for the groom. I hadn't even thought about it, but my husband was really appreciative to have a pro on hand to make sure he looked his best. I am so happy we chose 1makeupman and can confidently recommend him to all brides!
