    Vesta is a warm soul who is incredibly good at what she does. We used pictures I liked to figure out the style I wanted for my wedding and she was very open to what I was looking for. Her make up is great quality and the airbrush lasted all night long and I looked perfect for my day. She's also such a positive and calm presence it's really nice to have her while you've got the wedding nerves, she puts you at ease. I was so happy I used her services, hire her!!!!

    Vesta helped me achieve my vintage wedding look. She was collaborative, punctual and genuinely a delight to be around. Her years of experience created the look I dreamed of. I would hire her again in a heartbeat; And if I ever have another event to go to, I will.

    Vesta was amazing to work with. She did hair and makeup for five people (without any help!) and everyone loved how it came out. I even changed how I wanted my hair done since the trial, and she rolled with it and I couldn't have been happier with how everything came out. Definitely recommend!

    I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I'm very pleased with the experience and would definitely recommend her. She listened to what I wanted and gave me lovely hair/makeup. But more than that she was just a lovely person to work with. She was easy to talk to and put me at ease.
    Communications were great; I sent her photos of hair/makeup I liked and we talked over that. A few weeks before the wedding we did a trial run at her gorgeous apartment. The trial run lasted a good four hours - Vesta didn't rush it at any point, even trying out two different "up-do" hairstyles on me until we were happy. She listened to what I wanted and responded.
    On the wedding day itself I was running a little late and was stressed out but Vesta's calming personality helped ease me a little. She again did great hair and makeup (I still had all my eye makeup on largely intact the next morning - I know it's bad that I didn't take it off, but it shows it was long lasting!). She also helped secure my headpiece. Both on the day and at the trial she also took nice photos that she shared with me.
    She's 100% competent as a hair/makeup artist but she also adds that little extra in that she's calming, makes you feel relaxed, and says very sweet things. Recommended.

    Wow! I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I met with her a few weeks prior to the wedding to do a trial. I needed advice on what to do with my hair and told Vesta how I don't normally wear a lot of makeup. She listened to my concerns, and made some great suggestions about how best to get a loose updo and make up that would enhance my features, not overwhelm them. I was so happy with the trial that I booked her to do my bridesmaids' hair and make up on the day of the wedding as well. She was punctual, did a great job on all of us and her rates were so reasonable. I was so glad to have her come to the bridal changing room to do the hair and makeup, it was so much better than going to a salon. My bridesmaids and I were all so happy that both our hair and makeup stayed put throughout the night!

    I must say from the moment I came across her page and website I had a STRONG feeling that Vesta would be my wedding day make up artist. I reached out blindly and received a response from her via Thumbtack. I gave her a call and her energy on the phone is what sold me. Her warm and happy nature was exactly what I needed for the big day. I decided to visit her for a make up trial and I was happy to have received such a warm reception, she asked questions on what I liked and didn't like made adjustments accordingly. I loved the look on that makeup trial day and knew it would be great on the wedding day. My actual wedding day make up was beyond amazing and the make trial did not stand a chance. She took her time and the attention to detail was amazing. I was looking for a Smokey eye, red lipped look and she gave me exactly that! Again that warm energy and spirit put me at ease and made the morning time getting ready part so much easier. I would definitely recommend Vesta Goodarz, she is an amazing talented artist as well as a sweet person.

    Thank you ;)

    Vesta was an absolute delight to work with, she accommodated arriving at our hotel nice and early so there were no last minute panics on our wedding day. She made me feel and look utterly fabulous, and I felt like a princess on my wedding day. Vesta is so very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and entertaining, she certainly made me feel at ease and helped in every way she could on my wedding day, I would have no reservations at all in recommending her to anyone. Thank you so very much Vesta

    Vesta was an absolute pleasure to work--both professional and pleasant from start to finish. She was prompt with her email replies (and for her house call on the big day), and worked effortlessly to ensure that I had the look I was going for for both my hair and makeup. Even though I didn't do a trial with her, I was so so pleased with her work; my hair and makeup was perfect all day long and I received so many compliments throughout the day. As a bonus, she was so much fun to chat with during her morning visit--lighthearted, educated, and filled with interesting stories--she helped ensure the morning of my wedding was calm and enjoyable ;-) Best of all, her prices can't be beat!

    Vesta couldn't have been better with the beautiful makeup and hair she provided for me, my bridal party and family members at my January wedding. Every single person looked gorgeous and each one of us got compliments all night long. She is very organized, timely, and has fair prices. Her assistant was exactly the same with her work ethic and talent. Vesta's experience and expertise were invaluable to the perfection of our wedding day. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone who wants to look incredibly gorgeous and romantic on their wedding day. Lovely work vesta! xoxo

    Vesta was a joy to work with, she made me and my bridesmaids look GORGEOUS on my wedding day. Each of my girls had a different complexion and she brought out each of their beauty.

    She was so flexible, during my trial we did something completely different than what she did on the day of and I was so happy with the results.

    She is so sweet to work with and a very good value.

    My bridesmaid hired Vesta to do our makeup as a gift. All of us absolutely adore her. She is so likeable, patient, and of course talented. Not only are you getting a makeup artist, but you’re also getting a professional photographer. I did two trials with her because I wanted to see my makeup in a dramatic and natural look. So it was very helpful that she took fantastic pictures for me to compare which would be the best choice. I also appreciated her skill in applying makeup for women of all colors. I had girls of every shade in my wedding and Velma’s palette was prepared for us. Whether our skin was that of Tilda Swinton or Grace Jones, she had the foundation and she matched our tones perfectly. I had an Indian inspired wedding and she did a Bollywood look for my bridesmaids. They looked stunning. And the best part about hiring Vesta……her low rates! I’ll be surprised if you find someone as talented as she is who is willing to travel to you for what she charges. She’s very affordable and you’ll be getting so much in return. What New Yorker can’t appreciate that? I highly recommend her for your special day. Thank you Vesta!

    Vesta and her assistant, Candace, executed the make-up and hair for me and my bridal party in August. We started very early (5am with 5 girls) and they were on time and we finished with time to spare. She was happy to work with us on anything we wanted, and was very tranquil yet punctual when executing her work. I would work with her again in a heart-beat and will use her in the future when I need help with make-up/hair for my headshots. Her prices are the best around for the product that she produces. She's the best!!

    I have worked with Vesta on many occasions for my television shoots (she's a pro with HD make-up!) and hosting events and I'm happy to say that she's much more than a make-up artist to me, she's a dear friend. She is always punctual, incredibly skilled in her craft, and mindful of each individual's personal style. She made me look like a princess on my wedding day, which was a colorful Indian affair. Instead of the typical up-do, she left my hair natural with soft curls and a veil on top. I got compliments galore since no one had seen an Indian bride look like that. She stayed with me the entire day for my two outfit changes which reflected both traditional and contemporary looks. Vesta is the ONLY person I trust when it comes to make-up/hair because she delivers exactly what I envision and helps bring out my natural beauty. I highly recommend her. A++

    Vesta is the best make up artist i've ever encountered. My trial make up session was awesome to say the least and was done on the day of my bridal shower. My guests were in awe of how beautiful I looked. Furthermore, on the day of my wedding Vesta travelled to my home and did a phenomenal job on my mother, one of my bridesmaids, and of course myself. All of my wedding pictures were flawless and it is in large part due to Vesta's brilliance as it relates to her craft. I would not hesitate to use her again in the very near future..

    In my search for my MUA I came across Vesta. When I saw her portfolio she had models of different ethnicities so you were really able to tell that she can work with diverse types of facial features and knew exactly how to accentuate them. When I contacted Vesta for a trial she got back to me right away and gave me the option of getting my trial done at her place or mine. Options are always a great convenience. When I had my trial with Vesta she was very nice, fun to talk to and the makeup was amazing. She understood my vision and listened to what I was looking for and did exactly what I wanted.
    On the wedding day, she came to Queens and she was awesome. She got there on time and got started right away. There were a total of 7 of us, 6 bridesmaids and myself, the bride. She worked diligently and made sure each one of the girls, including me, was perfect for the day. She was really great with time management and she worked very efficiently. She really listened to each girl to find out what they liked but she made it that much better than any of us imagined.
    My make-up on the day of was flawless. I didn’t think it was possible that it could be better than the trial but it was even better! I loved it so much I didn’t want to wash it off at the end of the night! I’ve seen some pictures from family members and friends and the makeup looks amazing in the photos. I can’t wait to see the photos taken by our photographer.
    Vesta is a makeup artist who can enhance your natural beauty and create the perfect look. She can transform the ordinary, into the extraordinary and beyond. Whether you need makeup for a wedding or a special event, or maybe just the perfect photo, you can count on Vesta for flawless beauty. I wanted to look and feel beautiful on my wedding day and that’s exactly what Vesta did and I can’t thank her enough!! Thank you so much for everything, you definitely have magic hands….

    Vesta is SO talented!!! Not only will she make you look really beautiful, she is the type of person that you would want to be around on your wedding day. She is kind, sweet, and funny. She has really great ideas, but will also listen to what you want. She did my makeup for my wedding, as well as my sister and mom's makeup. My sister has now used her for other events, and I have also used her to do my makeup now 3 times in the past 6 months. I will definitely call Vesta the next time I want to have my makeup done!!!

    Vesta is an extraordinary talent. I had a trial session on the day my (now) husband and I had our engagement photos taken. I was nervous because I had never had my makeup done professionally before, but Vesta put me at ease. When my husband came to pick me up, he was speechless over how beautiful I looked.

    On my wedding day, the guests made comments about how gorgeous the whole bridal party looked , and the makeup lasted the whole day. I was also so grateful that she was able to put my bridal party at ease; none of them had ever had their make up professionally done either, and one of my bridesmaids was nervous about the whole experience because of skin sentivities. Vesta put everyone at ease about the products that she uses. I was so glad that she was there on my wedding morning. Overall, Vesta was a pleasure to work with, and her experience and professionalism are unparalleled.

    My daughter wanted a hollywood glamour Marilyn Monroe type look for the day of her Marriage Celebration, and I wanted an Indian wedding look. Vesta created exactly what we wanted, and for a very reasonable price for New York City. She airbrushed us flawlessly and our makeup remained fresh with no retouching, not even for lipstick for the duration of our event, which was a full 24 hours. Since I planned this event long distance, we'd never met before that day, but we emailed back and forth several times exchanging information about ourselves that would help her achieve our vision. We were already running late that day after getting our hair done, so Vesta had already arrived and was waiting for us at our hotel when we finally got there. Cheerful and calming, she expertly went to work, first on me to put my daughter's initial fears regarding airbrushing to rest, and then her. I highly recommend Vesta with no hesitation.

    Vesta literally saved my wedding day (the makeup and hair part of it at least!) I came out of an initial hair/makeup trial crying hysterically only weeks away from my wedding not knowing where to turn until I met Vesta. She was extremely courteous, flexible, talented, sweet, came out to my home in New Jersey and not only met but EXCEEDED my bridal expectations. She is incredibly talented and knows how to do great hair and makeup. For example: I have very fine, thin silky hair: VESTA made me look like I had a beautiful thick crown of lovely hair in curls. I showed Vesta photos of the glamorous girl I wanted to be, she almost is like an artist, transforming you into a beautiful piece of china and making me feel like a million dollars. She skillfully and tastfully applied makeup and lashes so that I looked gorgeous on my wedding day. Furthermore, she and her wonderful assistant transformed our whole bridal party (and my mom) into glowing goddesses. My makeup lasted ALL day as did my hair! Yours will too. also whatever photos you give Vesta or whatever ideas you give her, she will definitely deliver! she's amazing! Definitely give her a try. If I ever have another event I'm going to definitely give Vesta a call to do my hair/ makeup!
