Wonderful artist and caring person!
Vesta is a talented makeup and hair artist. Not only that, but she is a sweet person and a pleasure to spend time with.Sent on 01/11/2020
For my makeup, I wanted to look like myself (only flawless.) I didn’t want to have a color scheme or crazy big eyelashes making me look so different than how I normally look. My fiancé said he wanted to look at me and it to not look a different person than his beloved fiancé! Vesta made this happen. I was thrilled with how the makeup turned out. It lasted the whole day and evening.
For hair, I initially had trouble getting curls to stay in my hair. Vesta recommended I buy extensions and gave me information on the type of extensions and where to buy them. I wore my hair down, with curls, since that is how I look best in photos. Vesta created curls that lasted the entire wedding. My hair was stunning, and I was thrilled.
Vesta was truly a sweet and caring person. I had my makeup trial at her home before my bridal shower and had to take a train from Penn Station later. I did not predict that my uber would not be able to access her home due to half marathon street closures. I called Vesta in a panic. She calmed me down and directed me how to reach her by subway or by walking. When I arrived all flustered, she made me feel so welcome and offered me tea. Afterward, since we were tight on time due to my arriving late, she even drove me to the subway! This was the person I wanted to have around on my wedding day!
On the wedding day, I didn’t have bridesmaids, but Vesta and her assistant did the hair and make up of me, my mom, my mother-in-law, two sisters-in-law and two flower girls. The time took longer than anticipated so I am glad we had the assistant. Vesta was a pro and even helped me steam my gown since I didn’t know how to do it. She clearly has lots of experience with wedding day prep and calming down nervous brides! Vesta was fabulous and I’d highly recommend her.

If you’re reading this, no need to hesitate - reach out and book a trial with Vesta!!!! She is the most kind, warm hearted and beautiful person who is extremely talented with hair and makeup!!! She has over 30 years of professional experience and really knows what she’s doing. I felt like a Goddess on my wedding day and it really was thanks to her.

Everything was perfect!
I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for myself, 6 bridesmaids and 2 mothers on my wedding day. I had her to do makeup and hair trial initially. I didn't know exactly what I wanted, but I was able to send her photos of what I was thinking, and she was able to translate it for me during the trial. On the day of, we had both her and her assistant. They made all of us feel and look amazing the entire day. She was truly a dream to work with. I'm an Asian bride and was concerned about looking clownish (I've had other makeup professionally done before and didn't look right because the artist didn't understand my features), but she totally understood my look. We were all able to send her a photo of what we wanted, and she could replicate the exact look (Blake Lively Hollywood waves were a common request with my group). Every single one of my girls were impressed with her, and we all felt like we looked our best. She was incredibly kind and professional the entire day, and I was so happy I had her with us.Sent on 12/11/2019

No-Stress & Magical
Vesta did an amazing job making my beauty vision come to life. She took my inspiration pictures and gave me the perfect braid crown and semi-natural make-up I was looking for. Everything was so perfect and my family and I felt so beautiful at the wedding - even my friends complimented me on my make-up and how natural it looked. She looked at my inspiration photos and made it happen - especially with the braid crown! My mother-in-law and mother both looked absolutely gorgeous and my sister & sister-in-laws were glowing too. Vesta worked so hard and was dedicated to making us feel beautiful. She took the stress out of it all and I really appreciate that. I felt magical on my wedding day, largely because of Vesta’s skill.Sent on 11/05/2019

Highly recommend-- amazing professional!
Vesta is an incredible person and professional-- even through a stressful experience I never had to worry about looking the part! She was so communicative in setting up the consultation and was a joy to work with--she was such a hospitable host in her home even though I was there for a professional consultation. She came to my house promptly for an early morning (~4am!) session the day of the wedding and actually made the getting ready process fun for me, my sister, and mother at that hour (she certainly goes above and beyond). I absolutely loved my look, as did my sister and mom. I HIGHLY recommend!! I was so impressed by her professionalism, kindness, sense of humor, and straight up amazing aesthetic eye.Sent on 09/29/2019

Enhancer of natural beauty
Vesta was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. She did makeup and hair for me, as well as makeup for my 5 bridesmaids and both mothers. She was on time, she was flexible when there were last minute changes to people’s hair styles, and made sure everyone’s makeup was flawless but natural looking. She brings such a great energy with her as well and we clicked from the beginning. She made everyone feel comfortable and was such a joy to have in the morning of my wedding day.Sent on 07/16/2019

Vesta was just amazing to work with! From first contacting her, through trial and until the big day she was so sweet and so professional!

Loved getting beautiful with Vesta
Vesta helped get myself, 2 sisters and mom ready for my wedding. She did both hair and make-up. She also covered a tattoo on my back. She was such a pleasure to work with and really easy to talk to. She listened to what I wanted and walked-through options during my trial. She created a schedule for the day of, arrived on-time to my home, and finished early. Her services were affordable. My hair and make-up stayed on all day. Loved my experience and would highly recommend. Thank you, Vesta!Sent on 07/01/2019

Charismatic and Talented
From the second Vesta invited me into her studio for my trial, I felt comfortable. She is extremely talented and warm. She does both hair and make up and works efficiently and quickly. She was able to accentuate my natural features and did a stunning job. She and her assistant worked well with the whole bridal party. I had 5 bridesmaids, a flower girl, and my mother. Her skill with airbrush, contour, and hair was impeccable. She was affordable and a complete pleasure to work with.Sent on 06/26/2019

Amazing! Highly reccomend! Shes perfect!
We all had such a great time with Vesta! She showed up at our place for my wedding! She did all my bridesmaids makeup and it was flawless! She was such a good time too. Really enjoyed her presence. I even had her stay at our place to clean up cause we had to get to my venue. She came by after to drop off the key and take pictures! She was like one of the girls. I highly recommend Vesta’s services!Sent on 01/02/2019

I can not say enough good things about Vesta. I found her online and after having two failed make up trials I didn’t have high hopes. She was very easy to deal with and book. I went to her place for my wedding make up trial and she listened to what I wanted and did just that. Apart from her being talented she is very sweet and personable. She made my time there enjoyable and I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. I hired her for my wedding day. The day of the wedding she arrived on time and I was shocked to find out she even had some car issue on her way yet she made it a priority to make it to me on time. She put aside her own issue which shows how professional she is. She did an amazing job on my hair and make up. I got tons of compliments on how great I looked. She even stayed a little longer after she was finished with me to help me into my dress since my wedding coordinator was no where to be found. If you need a make up artist then look no further, Vesta is simply amazing.Sent on 10/11/2018

A special thanks to Vesta for the amazing job did with my hair and makeup on my wedding day. As soon as she walked into the hotel room, I knew I was in capable hands. Vesta showed up on time, she is very professional and a lovely person. My sister's hair turned out wonderful, too. Everyone who has seen my wedding photos, complimented how great my hair and makeup looked .I was so lucky to have her take care of me and to say that I loved the outcome, is an understatement. I also enjoyed our chat while she worked. Vesta made my wedding day unforgetable.Sent on 09/22/2018

Julianna · Married on 06/08/2018
I'm so glad I found Vesta to do my wedding makeup! After my first trial with someone else was a total flop I was worried that this makeup process was going to be more difficult and more expensive than I initially planned. Luckily, after my trial with Vesta I knew that was not the case! On the day of the wedding she arrived to our hotel on time and did my makeup, MOB and most of my bridesmaids. Everyone was very happy with her services and her price felt very fair. I could not cover the cost of makeup for all my bridesmaids so made it optional for them. Vesta provided me with some photos from my trial and the cost which as I mentioned already, felt very fair so I felt good about asking everyone if they were interested. My girls all looked so gorgeous and our photos came out great. It helps to have someone who knows how to make you look good in person but also in photos which she does. Vesta even took a few shots with her own professional quality camera when she was done and sent them to me later. They're gorgeous closeups and not like any of the shots we got back from our photographer so I was very happy to have those as well!Sent on 07/11/2018

I was so happy to work with Vesta for my wedding day! From our first meeting she was a great listener (especially for me, a hair and makeup novice!) and tried lots of different things to find the perfect look. On the day of the wedding she and her two assistants were wonderful - quick and friendly and made everyone feel at ease. I absolutely adored my final look and those of my bridesmaids and mother. She was very flexible, as well, squeezing in a special family member for makeup at the end, as well. She stayed after our first look photos to make sure everything was perfectly touched up for the ceremony and made us all feel beautiful! Highly recommend for wedding or any special event!Sent on 03/06/2018

Harpreet · Married on 10/14/2017
Vesta is an amazing makeup and hair artist. She worked with my 2 bridesmaids, mom, mom-in-law, and I. My husband and I had a fusion American and South Asian (Indian) wedding and Vesta gave me the hair and makeup looks I needed. I knew from my trial that she was someone special. With her, I felt comfortable and beautiful in my own skin. She does amazing things with makeup. Her TV experience is one of many things that makes her truly special. She seems to know exactly how to work the makeup so that everyone looks flawless, both in pictures and in person. Not only is she talented, she is also very kind and has such a bright and happy personality. You can tell that she is genuinely happy for you as she working on making sure you look and feel your absolute most beautiful. Bottom line - I will hire her anytime I need hair/makeup done and also recommend her to anyone seeking a highly skilled artist!Sent on 12/08/2017

Vesta was so great to work with. She did the hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and two moms and she did a phenomenal job on each one. She was punctual and worked SO fast, keeping us on a really tight schedule. We also had a really fun time hanging out with her on the day-of... some makeup/hair folks can be a little too chatty, but Vesta is awesome. All of my bridesmaids loved meeting her and had a really fun time despite the stress of the day. The hair and makeup held up really well despite the August heat & humidity. Also, having now worked with a lot of vendors who are a real headache to work with, I was so grateful for Vesta's responsiveness and flexibility. She made the wedding planning a little less stressful.Sent on 09/08/2017
