Your search is done - you want Ana on your wedding team!
If you are looking for a wedding style team that not only makes you (and your crew) LOOK beautiful, but also FEEL beautiful and celebrated, look no further! I cannot recommend Ana and her team enough. On my big day, Ana and Liz provided bridal hair and makeup, and bridesmaid makeup services. These two ladies were fantastic.
For the bridal makeup look, Ana was extremely thoughtful and responsive to all of my questions and thoughts (for example, I told her that I was having issues with dry skin and she brought me a hydrating face mask for the morning of my wedding!). I have limited knowledge of makeup, but Ana was so easy to work with and very adeptly took my thoughts about my bridal look and translated it into the perfect presentation. She used high quality products and personalized the makeup regime to fit my specific skin needs and desired look.
I have naturally curly hair and knew that I was in good hands as soon as I met Liz. She was so much fun to work with and a master at styling hair. I remember on my wedding morning, Liz commented that she had studied the photos that she took of my hair at the bridal trial and had a few ideas of small changes that would strengthen the look (the inspiration was a "Greek goddess"-type style that used my natural curls) and she was totally right! That kind of commitment to "getting it just right" and thoughtfulness from both her for my hair, and Ana for my makeup, is really what made these ladies exceptional stylists.
Several of my bridesmaids and both mothers commented how much they loved their makeup done by Ana and Liz, and how much they appreciated that Ana and Liz actually listened to what their preferences were and provided looks that made them feel glamorous and comfortable, while still remaining within the general wedding aesthetic.
Ana and Liz were also perfect on-site support on the day of the wedding. They were calm, fun, and worked quickly the whole morning. I also appreciated how flexible they were when the "getting ready schedule" got a little off schedule. They rolled with the last minute changes and provided a positive and affirming presence through the whole experience. They also followed very strict COVID and hygiene protocols, which made all of us feel very comfortable too. You will not regret booking this style team!!Sent on 03/20/2021

Ana and Melissa were amazing! They were prompt and super friendly. My mother in law and I loved our hair and makeup! Can't put a price on a great professional team for your big day! Made everything very smooth! Hair and makeup lasted all afternoon/night and looked amazing in our photos. Will definitely be using them again!Sent on 10/25/2020

I felt fabulous on my special day!
I booked Ana Merces’s services for my civil ceremony. Ana was wonderful from start to finish as my MUA. Part of her team and hairstylist, Elizabeth Perez, was there for my hair design. It was a nice surprise to have two professionals come to my house, as I was only expecting one when I first booked. I was glad to have them both, because my makeup and hair design was finished earlier than expected. I felt relaxed, enjoyed my time, and did not need rush before leaving my house. They both genuinely care about their brides. Their skills and expertise show through their amazing work. Ana, who is the owner and lead makeup artist, listens and works with you beforehand to understand your vision for your special day. They were both very kind and professional, and any bride who hires Ana Merces’s services will feel comfortable and at ease.Sent on 12/30/2020
Thank you so much Ana and Elizabeth!
I recently worked with Ana and found her to be extremely professional, organized, and a flawless makeup artist. Overall she is the best I have seen in awhile, I would absolutely recommend her to all brides out there wanting to look like a million dollars on their big day!
Ana is wonderful to work with! She creates natural, classic, and elegant looks that every bride seeks. Her professional, talented, and warm personality makes you feel so relaxed and comfortable - very important on the big day! Ana is creative but she will also listen carefully to your needs. Not only will she bring out your natural beauty but you can feel confident knowing that your makeup will last throughout your day. You will love the end results! Ana loves what she does, and that truly shows in her work. I highly recommend Ana for your special event!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Ana is a master of the classic "clean" makep style that truly brings out the inner beauty of her subjects. I have worked with Ana on multiple occasions and each and every time I am awed by her breath-taking work.
