I've had the pleasure of having Maria do my makeup several times for multiple occasions over the years, and I always receive compliments.
Maria uses high-quality makeup from top brands.

What I appreciate most, is that she always makes the experience about you and always makes sure my makeup compliments my features.

Thanks, Maria! See you again soon.
