Best Decision Ever!
Booking Gohar for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. She was very easy to connect with in the months leading up to our wedding and I so appreciated her responsiveness. Between her calm presence and pristine skill, she was a delight to have with us as we got ready. She put my bridesmaids, mom and mother in law at ease and everyone raved about their makeup. I wish we could do it all over again!Sent on 11/04/2019

Gohar is WONDERFUL! Before I found Gohar, I had done a trial with another makeup artist and was unhappy with the outcome. It was 1 month before the wedding and I wasn’t able to come to VA for a trial before my wedding (I live in NY). I was SO nervous that whoever I booked next would get it wrong, too. But THANK GOD I booked Gohar! She suggested that we still do a trial the day before the wedding for my rehearsal, which was brilliant. I showed her a couple pictures of what I liked and she NAILED it. It was the perfect balance of natural and glam, and it lasted ALL night. Tears, dancing, eating, drinking, kissing and hugging were no match for Gohar’s work! The bridal party looked BEAUTIFUL as well, and everyone loved their makeup. She even made my mom CRY because she said she had never felt so beautiful in her life, but she still felt like herself. It takes someone special to do that! Gohar was a PLEASURE to work with, she was right on time (early, actually, so she could set up) and she has continued to be a pleasure since then, too! I would love the chance to work with her again, and if I were you, I wouldn’t think twice about hiring her. You’ll be glad you did!!Sent on 10/15/2019

Loved working with Gohar for my wedding weekend! She was so kind and did a fantastic job on the makeup for my bridesmaids and myself. She is a great 'listener' and was able to tweak her makeup application depending on your personal preferences.Sent on 11/17/2019
She was also really flexible - because of some timing challenges, we had a hard time traveling to Gohar's studio for makeup before my rehearsal dinner. Gohar ended up meeting us at the hair studio to help us out! We were so appreciative!
I had an opportunity to see Gohar’s incredible dresses , when she was one of the Designers at the Fashion Show in DC . If you need a dress , that is unique yet feminine, look no further...Gohar will create your dream dress ! . On top of her incredible talent as a Designer, she will complete your look by a beautiful makeup application. Ladies , if you need someone in Charlottesville, Gohar will help you with a dress design or makeup!
Besides being one of the nicest vendors I've ever worked with, and vouched for by many others in our creative community, Gohar is extremely talented!! Ive watched her transform ladies from freshfaced fiance's to gorgeously glamorous brides ready for there big day. She really knows what she's doing and any bride would be LUCKY to have her working her magic!! Highly recommend!
I love working with Gohar. Not only is she a true artist, but she is a kind, easy-going professional who makes any event more fun! Her work is exquisite! I highly recommend her and work with her whenever I can!
