Look no further!
Tarah is amazing! I had been looking for a makeup artist for a while. As someone who loves makeup and is very particular about *everything* with my own makeup, I was really hesitant going into my wedding-makeup-artist search. Tarah blew away all my expectations!Sent on 10/07/2020
I hired Tarah to do my makeup for my engagement shoot as a test run. From the moment I started communicating with her, I was impressed! She was not only very responsive, prompt, and professional, but she was so friendly. We talked prices, products, concerns, etc, so I felt like I went into my experience with her having all of my questions answered thoroughly.
During the makeup application, everything went so smoothly. She took extra sanitary precautions (due to COVID), which I really appreciated. She listened to exactly what I wanted and was sure to check in with me and show me her work throughout the process to be sure I was OK with everything (I was... everything looked great). Ultimately, my makeup looked awesome and I wish I could hire Tarah to make me look fabulous every day. I also really appreciated her warm attitude and general professionalism, because it made the process THAT much less stressful (and let's be real, we can all use a little less stress)!

The best vendors I ever worked with!
This review is a bit odd to write considering I had to cancel my 4/18/20 wedding due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. But I felt it absolutely necessary to make future couples aware of how amazing Madison and Tarah are at what they do!
Though my wedding has been canceled, I did get to meet Madison and have her perform my wedding makeup trial. She was so down to earth and real - having my makeup done by her felt like chatting with an old friend while getting dolled up. You can tell she cares so deeply about her craft and she worked tirelessly to make my makeup perfect. She also checked in with me the next day to see how my makeup held up and if I had any concerns, which I so appreciated.
Though I never met Tarah, corresponding with her over email was SO easy and smooth. She effectively handled a few last-minute changes I wanted to make and worked with me to make sure I felt supported every step of the way. She also responded within 24 hours every time I reached out - I never had to follow up, which is honestly so refreshing during a time where you're dealing with multiple different vendors. I also really appreciate that Blushed by Brink put their pricing and policy info directly on their website. When you're planning a wedding, small details like transparency really set vendors apart!
A quick note on the makeup itself. I am Indian and going into finding a makeup artist, I was so worried I wouldn't be able to find one who properly understood my skin tone and was able to achieve the look I wanted. I wasn't having a traditional Indian ceremony so I didn't want super heavy/dramatic makeup, but I did want a more glam look than usual natural makeup. I also usually don't wear makeup on a daily basis. Madison took a look at my Pinterest board and immediately knew what to do, even when my request was slightly outside Blushed by Brink's more natural aesthetic - and she matched my skin flawlessly with her airbrush makeup. For brides of color out there who are worried about the nuances of their skin tone, rest assured that you are in great hands with Madison and Tarah.
I could tell from first booking through to my makeup trial and beyond that these sisters care so much for their craft and for their clients. Both their work and their customer service is exceptional in every sense of the word. Though my actual celebration plans are up in the air, I will absolutely be going back to Blushed by Brink when I can.
I 100000% recommend Tarah and Madison to any bride in the Orange County or San Diego area!Sent on 03/18/2020
