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! xoxoSent on 01/25/2014

Vesta is fantastic. On my wedding day, she was on time, was very professional and did an excellent job with my makeup. My makeup, as well as my sister and mom's looked gorgeous and perfect throughout the day! I'd work with Vesta again in a second.Sent on 10/30/2013

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.Sent on 11/05/2013
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.
Beautiful Brides by Vesta's reply:Thank you dear for giving me the opportunity to be part of your very special day. It was beautiful to see you and your party looked so amazing. I will never forget the moments of your joy when you and your maid of honor were singing together to get ready for one of the biggest moment of your life.

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!Sent on 02/26/2014
Beautiful Brides by Vesta's reply:I am so lucky that I was part of Amanda's big day. She is naturally so beautiful and on her wedding day she had the most radiant glow. She is the bride with style and her bridesmaids were so much fun and beautiful. I will never forget your day Amanda.....much love

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!!Sent on 09/02/2013

Vesta did the most wonderful hair and makeup for my wedding events. She is super talented and and very professional! I loved everything (including my mom's hair and make-up) and received so many compliments from family friends and other guests.Sent on 09/14/2013
Kanika · Married on 06/23/2013
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++Sent on 02/25/2014
Beautiful Brides by Vesta's reply:I was so blessed and thankful to Kanika who gave me the opportunity to work with her on her big special day. She is graceful and so caring for everyone who works with her and an absolute beauty inside out. I hope we work together on many occasion and I truly wish all the best with her marriage and family.

Vesta was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive and reasonably priced. She did my hair and makeup as well as my daughter's makeup. She made us look fantastic! Our makeup looked so natural and we got lots of complements! Our makeup lasted the entire day, even through rainy weather. I would recommend her to all. Thank you Vesta!Sent on 06/09/2013

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..
Melissa · Married on 02/17/2013
Vesta is absolutely amazing at what she does! I traveled from Canada to get married in NYC. I was able to book short notice with Vesta. She was/is extremely accomodating and professional. I would recommend her to anyone. She delivered exactly what i had envisioned myself looking like on my wedding day!!! Book with Vesta, and you will not be disappointed!!Sent on 03/06/2013
Thank You Vesta!!

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.Sent on 11/16/2012
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 a wonderful makeup artist with exceptional professionalism and warm personality. She promptly answers to questions or concerns. She is attentive to details and listened to individual request carefully and made us all look the way we wanted. The bridal party and myself were all happy with her service. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented makeup artist.Sent on 10/20/2012

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!!!Sent on 02/22/2012
Darlene · Married on 07/03/2011
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.Sent on 10/16/2011
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.
Raquel · Married on 05/15/2011
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.Sent on 05/08/2012

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!Sent on 04/20/2011

I was very lucky to have Vesta as a make-up artist for my wedding in Sep. 2010. I had initially decided to forgo using a make-up artist (not crazy about make-up), but changed my mind only a few weeks before my wedding after a friend highly recommended her services and after I had a chance to see her work at our trial session. Ultimately, she did applications for both me and my mom for my wedding and we were both very happy with our looks.Sent on 09/25/2010
Vesta was a true professional - she listened to our preferences, paid attention to detail and, most importantly, did her work with skill and artistry. In helping us decide on a "look" she considered both how we would appear in person as well as in photographs. Also, for those of you who are concerned about this kind of thing, she has an excellent eye for make-up that suited our skin tones (something that both my mom and I always have trouble with given our darker skin color) and paid attention to the colors of our clothing and flowers for a look that came out great both in-person and in our photos. I loved how I looked on my wedding day - it's the most comfortable I have felt wearing make-up and the end-result appeared natural and effortless. She is a great value for the cost and traveled to the location which made our day a lot less stressful. Incidentally, I have heard make-up artists charge at least double for similar services so, again, I was very lucky to get her.

Vesta has been my makeup artist every time I get my headshots done and I would not have trusted anyone else to do my wedding makeup.Sent on 04/16/2010
Not only is Vesta brilliant at what she does but she is immensely patient and really takes the time to work with you to get the perfect look. My dress was very 1940's old Hollywood inspired and Vesta did my makeup to reflect that.
I would recommend Vesta in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional and kind-hearted makeup artist for their wedding.
Mima · Married on 08/08/2009
I loved working with Vesta. Despite all the stress I had on my wedding day, she did a wonderful job making me look and feel beautiful. She did exactly what I wanted her to do. She was very confident at what she was doing and that was one less thing to worry about on my big day. Everyone complimented me on my hair and make up. Every time I look at my wedding pictures, I thank her for such wonderful job she did. She also did my mom's and my sisters' make up and they only had good things to say about her work. She is very kind and has great attitude. Her positive attitude made me calmer too. I recommend her to any bride who wants to be worry free about her make up on her wedding day.Sent on 04/18/2010

Vesta is a wonderful makeup artist. She did a trial session, after which she took a wonderful picture that I have to this day. On my wedding day, I was nervous about a lot of things but not my makeup. I looked fabulous and she did small touches throughout the reception so I looked as good at the end of the night as I did at the start.Sent on 04/16/2010

I don't use lots of makeup and was afraid I'm going to look like an old lady with all coverage on my wedding day . But Vesta did a great job on my hair and make up . I had a trial with her at first and love the natural style. Highly recommended.Sent on 09/15/2017

Jennifer · Married on 10/26/2014
With so many makeup/hair artists, it became overwhelming to choose someone for my wedding until I found Vesta. She is exceptionally patient, friendly and professional especially with my three wild bridesmaids who all had different suggestions for my bridal look. I had many questions and was delighted Vesta answered all my emails promptly instead of making me wait on an answer when I was already anxious with my wedding plans. She listened to everybody attentively and achieved their ideal look and everyone was happy, especially me! My bridesmaids and I had our first makeup/hair trial at Vesta’s home, and I went alone the second time to try another hairstyle and makeup without distractions of the bridesmaids. I was happy and relieved to have decided to do a second trial and loved the finished look.Sent on 02/28/2015
I have been to so many weddings and saw how many brides makeup made them look so different, intense and dramatic sometimes; that was not the kind of look I wanted. Everyone at my wedding complimented and loved my hairstyle and makeup and so did I because being comfortable and feeling beautiful was key to me. Vesta was not the kind of person who would be pushy to the customers to do only what she thought was right but would honestly make suggestions. I choose something close to my everyday makeup with neutral colors and Vesta made me look and felt beautiful.
Thank you so much! Definitely will book Vesta again for a future event.
Beautiful Brides by Vesta's reply:Thank you dear Jen for having me to be part of your special day. I had such a great time to style your beautiful hair and doing makeup on your flawless face and doing the same for your party. Everyone was so much fun and we share some great laughter. I will not forget your day. It was truly one of the highlights..Wish you a great marriage and hope to see you for other occasions.

I could recommend Vesta to everyone who is looking for a make-up artist and hair-stylist : she is very professional, efficient, has wonderful artistic vision and great skills. Before my wedding day I had sent her the samples of the hair-do I would love to have - and she managed to make it exactly the way I liked it! No need to mention she has such a friendly and warm personality! It was a pure luck I found her among so many other professionals. It is so important to be sure that everything is going to work well and smooth on your wedding day - with Vesta you can be 100% sure about it.Sent on 08/07/2013
