Angela took care of me for both of my engagement session and on my wedding and I couldn't be happier than that! She was always on time and make up always finished as expected so we were never in a rush. Make up trial is highly recommended because you cannot expect the make up artist would know exactly what you want without trying it on, especially if you are picky! I am pretty picky about my eyes' make up (For example, I like my eyes to look longer instead of rounder) and Angela got a much better understanding on how I wanted to do it after the trial - and everything turned out to be amazing on my wedding! Love her :)Sent on 03/21/2017

Best Natural Hair and Makeup Artist
Crystal is AH-MAY-ZING. I first went to her for my engagement session. In our first meeting, she asked me what look I was going for. I told her that I wanted a very natural look, someone that my then-fiancé can still recognize. I've heard too many horror stories of guys marrying someone that totally looks different. Crystal did such a great job that I knew I had to book her for my big day as well. I highly recommend a hair trial because we had to try different styles to fit my petite face (don't always trust Pinterest).Sent on 07/04/2019
On the day of my wedding, her team was able to quickly set up in our hotel room. They all did such a great job with my bridesmaids, groomswoman, and I, everyone looked so beautiful! One of my bridesmaids told me that out of the four times she's been a bride, her hair and makeup turned out the best with BIMS.
Overall, this company is very professional. I researched many makeup artists in the SGV area and BIMS prices were the most reasonable, especially since you get to work with the owners and not just a senior or lead artist. One major plus is that Crystal gave me advice on skincare and makeup. I am still using the products that she recommended. I must say that my wedding photographer, Donna Lam's photography style matches BIMS style very well. I recommend booking both together. I would definitely come back to Crystal if I want to take any more professional photos in the future.

BIM was referred to me by a friend to do my wedding make up. At the time I was doing research on different makeup artists but luckily I have met Angela a few times in my life. I’ve seen her work on my friends on their wedding days and the quality work shows through. Each bride have always looked natural, not over done and the make up lasts through out the day. I did the trial and wasn’t disappointed, a lot of care was taken to understand what I wanted and what their professional recommendations are. I’m don’t wear a lot of makeup so I didn’t have too much input but Angela took the lead which was what I wanted.Sent on 01/12/2019
On my wedding, Angela and her team came on time and finished my bridesmaids and I according to schedule. I loved my makeup even more, highly recommend getting airbrushed, the makeup looked flawless. The makeup and hair lasted through out the night. Thanks BIM, it was a pleasure working with you.

So blessed to have BIM!!
Beauty in Motion provided excellent customer service since day one when I contacted them all the way until my BIG day. Angela was my MUA and she's soooo caring, professional and super easy to work with. I had total of 4 different dresses (including my wedding gown) on my wedding and she did a perfect job for each of my look, matching with all my dresses. I was so blessed to have her and her team on my big day. I got a loooott of compliments not just for my makeup and hairstyles, but also for my mom's, mother-in-law's and all my bridesmaids'. Especially, my mother-in-law was so happy because she said Angela made her look so young!! *hint hint for all the future brides to please your mother in law on your big day!! Lol highly recommend Angela and her team!!Sent on 04/09/2019

Angela & Crystal are an amazing sister team tackling all of my beauty needs.Sent on 09/10/2018
Crystal did my microblading and made it a comfortable, painless procedure. She was very attentive and took the time to make sure my eyebrows were even and was a good fit for me. I got so many compliments afterwards on my eyebrows. It was my first time doing microblading and I did the ombre powder look and loved it!
Angela did my bridal and bridal party make up for my wedding day. She also did it for my mom. Given our different face shapes and skin types, Angela was able to find a look for each individual person that looked great for them. She also did our hair and made it look very glamorous and gorgeous. If you have any photos to create a certain look, Angela will be able to replicate it very accurately!
Everyone was happy and radiating with their hair and make up. I got positive feedback on my make up and my hair. Angela even loaned a beautiful golden hair piece that I placed a deposit for. When returning it, I got my deposit it and it just added an extra layer of glamorous to my special day.
Both ladies provide great customer service and made it so easy to communicate via texting with! I wouldn't go anywhere else for my beauty needs and highly recommend them for hair, make up, and microblading!

If you're lucky enough to book Angela and her team, DO IT. She's an absolute genius in creating a gorgeous look based on what you want, even if you only have a general ideal. She was a total professional, extremely fun to be around, and truly talented at her work. I HIGHLY recommend!Sent on 08/08/2018

This review is a slightly overdue but I felt it was important to provide it nonetheless. I used Beauty in Motion for my May 2016 wedding. Angela and Crystal provided hair and makeup services for a total of 10 of my gals including bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids, moms and myself (the bride). Prior to my wedding day I had a trial session that went very well. I am glad I did one and would highly recommend future brides to have one as well. It makes the day of run a bit smoother since everything has been pre worked out. On wedding day, the team came to my home where they arrived on time and ready to work. In my opinion, their work is effortless and classic. Crystal and Angela were great to work with from start to finish. Work with them - you will be very pleased!Sent on 05/22/2017

Angela did my makeup trial and engagement shoot. She is also doing my makeup/hair for my wedding day. I loved my makeup both times. She listened to every detail and request and worked with me until I was absolutely happy with my look. I highly recommend Beauty in Motion Studio to anybody.Sent on 01/24/2016

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE CRYSTAL!!! My wedding was this past weekend and Crystal and her team did such an amazing job!!! Crystal did my makeup and hair and her team (two wonderful ladies) did my bridesmaids.Sent on 11/24/2015
I was really amazed at the attentive-ness that Crystal showed, and it was only the bridal trial! Compared to the trial and the actual wedding day, the amount of time Crystal spent on me was the same! During the trial she made absolutely sure it was perfect and that I liked it. I had two hair styles, up-do and down-do. She knew I was mainly concerned with my eyes (i have small tiny asian eyes) and she spent alot of time on my eyes to make sure it popped! Overall the trial was a huge success.
They drove to the location where I was getting ready at. The first 35 miles is free, but I think mine overall was a little over but Crystal didnt even try to nickle and dime me :) her team was on time and ready to go immediately. I kept asking Crystal if she wanted any food or drink, but she only just wanted to focus on me! Yes it did take all morning from 8:30AM-12:00PM but it was so fun chatting here and there with Crystal and her team that I did not even notice what time it was. All of a sudden I was done! I had so much compliments and my friends and family could not believe that was me! I really recommend the air brush, I also tried it during the trial as well. It is a bit extra but it is sooo worth it. I am the type of person that gets sweaty really easily. The airbrush held up so well through my sweat, just make sure you dab and not wipe! Not to mention Crystal gave me a little kit at the end to help with touch ups in between. A blotting sheet to help with my sweating, lip gloss, and extra bobby pins and a lip brush.
Overall, BIMS is soooo awesome! I really recommend them! Not to mention my maid of honor was sooo impressed with them she has also booked them for engagement session, bridal trial, bridal hair and bridesmaids hair.

BIM was the first vendor I met and I immediately decided to use BIM after talking to Angela during our consultation. Angela is really really sweet. She gave really good suggestions and ideas when I showed her the the make up and hair style I'm looking for.Sent on 11/06/2015
I got married on 10/10/15 and it was extremely hot that day. My makeup kept on without ANY problems through the day and I was very impressed and happy. I got a lot of compliments on my makeup that day.
Also I got a huge pimple a few days before the wedding (I also broke out a week before my engagement photo shot, too. Yeah..go figure...)and I was really upset and worried. After Angela did the makeup, I can hardly see the pimple. It was covered up very naturally without looking heavy or caky.
I would highly recommend Angela and her team for any bride-to-be out there and you will not be disappointed.

Loved loved loved working with Beauty In Motion! They were always quick to reply to my emails and their rates were exactly what I was looking for. I hired them as the beauty team for my bridesmaids, flower girl and moms and I couldn't have been happier with how everything worked out. My flower girl brought a Frozen Braid Book and showed them the "Anna" braid she wanted ... they completely nailed it - ribbon and all. I would absolutely recommend them for any bride/bridal party.Sent on 10/27/2015

Angela and Crystal were an amazing team to work with. They did my makeup along with my matron of honor, and mother's. They were always responsive and understood exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day. The makeup trial and wedding day went smoothly and they even finished before schedule! Hiring them was a very easy decision and one less thing to stress about since they were on time, responsive, and very friendly. I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 10/22/2015

There is nothing to do but rave and praise Beauty in Motion and their team. I went in and had my hair and makeup done for my engagement photos (booked them solely on their reviews) and by the end of the appointment had secured them for my wedding 5 months away. They are amazing at what they do. They make you look like yourself, but 100 times better. All my bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup on the day, and I could not have been happier myself. I felt beautiful and confident, which is all you can ask for. Plus, my hair and makeup lasted the entire day up until our wedding ended at 1 am.Sent on 06/12/2015
If I have any special event in the future, I may just have to use it as an excuse to return to them and feel wonderful again!

I am so thankful to have had Angela and her amazing team for my wedding day hair and make up! They are all such talented and sweet ladies!! Their wedding package is really the best in the industry. I would recommend Beauty in Motion Studios to other brides looking for a top notch Make up & Hair artist. Thanks to Angela, everyone said I looked amazing on my wedding day :)Sent on 03/26/2015
Angela is one of the most responsive vendors that I had worked with for my special day, as well as being professional.
She will even let the beautiful bride borrow some of her beautiful jewelry and a veil for their special day.
Thank you Angela, your team is amazing! :)

Angela was amazing from Beauty in Motion. She was always very quick to respond to my emails with exactly the information I needed.Sent on 06/22/2015
I hired Angela to do my hair and makeup for the wedding day, and she also did my makeup for my engagement photos. Through the whole process she was very attentive and friendly.
For the day of the wedding, she brought in a team to help with the hair and makeup of my 5 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls. They showed up a little earlier than expected, which was so nice, and the whole team was friendly and willing to answer questions about the hair and makeup process.
Angela and her team definitely helped make the morning go smoothly.

Worked with Angela and her team for day of wedding makeup, comprise of my make up and hair, my bridesmaid's make up & hair and my sister in law hair. The make up and hair was very fitting. Everyone loved it, it was young and fresh, the makeup was not dull had the dewy look. Price was reasonable for what we wanted, trial was very productive and the final day Angela and team showed up on time and was very professional. They are very open to what you want and very responsive whether email, text or phone.Sent on 11/23/2014

My experience with Angela has been very positive. Angela, the makeup artist, was very responsive to my emails as well as my questions. She was also very flexible: I had changes to my venue as well as my dress. These changes affected the way I would wear my hair and makeup. Angela was able to accommodate for these changes with no problem.Sent on 09/30/2014
On the day of the wedding, I received lots of compliments on my hairdo from guests as well as took many photos with the photographer on the hair. I am so pleased with Angela's professionalism, responsiveness and quality of work, that I will continue to use Beauty in Motion to do my hair, makeup and facials for future events.
I would definitely recommend using Beauty in Motion for your wedding.

Crystal and her team did an AMAZING job on my and my wedding party's hair and makeup. From the initial consultation with Crystal and Angela, to my engagement shoot, to my hair/makeup trial, and lastly my wedding day, Crystal was fantastic. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell she really cares for her job and customers. I didn't have too much of a preference on how I wanted my hair/makeup completed for my engagement shoot. I had complete trust in Crystal and she did a fabulous job on my engagement shoot look. During my hair/makeup trial, I showed her a couple of looks that I liked and she did her magic and was able to come up with a fabulous look. On my wedding day, her and her team arrived on time at our bridal suite and was able to complete my, my 4 bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother-in-law's makeup/hair - (7 people total) - in a span of 4 hours! I couldn't have asked for better service! My bridesmaids looked wonderful (each having their own personally chosen looks) and I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. Crystal also came during my reception to change up my make up for my second dress. I, unfortunately, was running about an hour late due to photographs with my guest tables, and left poor Crystal waiting for me for about an hour. But when I went back to finally change into my second dress, Crystal was so sweet and patient with me. She was very professional throughout the few months I have met with her. You can always email her and she responds really quickly. She is very easy to talk to and I felt completely trusting in her knowledge and skills. I couldn't have asked for a better hair & makeup artist!!!Sent on 10/05/2014

Crystal, Angela, and their team are wonderful! Since I first reached out to them, they were nothing but patient and sweet! As a business, they've got it down - they're quick to respond emails, they listen to what the customer wants, and they provide a good value for their services (veil and jewelry rentals were complimentary). They're prompt and very aware of time, so as long as you let them know of your schedule, you won't have to worry about hair & makeup running you late!Sent on 10/12/2014
Crystal was my makeup and hair artist for my engagement shoot, my wedding trial, and my wedding. She did a wonderful job listening to what I wanted and offered great input when I asked. Obviously every bride wants to look and feel beautiful on the day of her wedding, but I also believe that this isn't a day where makeup is meant to be caked on but rather to amplify the beautiful features she already has. Crystal and her team did a wonderful job of this! All of my bridesmaids as well as my mother and MIL were very pleased with how everything turned out! They are such a pleasure to work with!
Serena · Married on 07/26/2014
Crystal and her team were absolutely wonderful!!! It started out with my trial session, she was patient and gave great advice we tried a few different styles and I knew I picked the right artist after my trial. Crystal and her team were originally scheduled to do hair and makeup for my 3 bridesmaids and myself but 3 days before the wedding I had a problem with another make-up team who were scheduled to work on my mom, sister, junior bridesmaids and mother and aunts of the groom. No problem, Crystal made it all happen, she called additional girls and we were able to add 8 more ladies to hair and makeup within 3 days notice - it was unbelievable!!! Crystal herself woke up extra early and showed up at my mom's house at 4:30AM to make it possible. Everyone was extremely happy with the results and I would highly recommend Crystal and her team to anyone looking for a great hair and makeup team!Sent on 08/12/2014

I tried out three hair and makeup people for my wedding and Beauty in Motion was by far the best. For the hair, I wanted something classic and intricate enough that I couldn't do it on my own (otherwise why pay a professional?). I also was pretty picky about how my hair framed my face and what kind of volume I was looking for. For the makeup, I wanted my skin to look natural with more subtle eye makeup (no club eye-makeup) and a lip color to compliment my skin. All of the other professionals left me wanting more and never seemed to get the exact result I wanted. With Beauty in Motion I didn't have to change anything. They knew exactly what would work on me and came up with a gorgeous style on the first try.Sent on 08/05/2014
They were right on time on the day of the wedding, came to the hotel where we were staying, and did hair and makeup for the bridal party (3 bridesmaids), me, and my mom. My mom even arrived one hour late and they were still able to do a great job on her hair and makeup! Hair and makeup is one of the most important things to a bride on her wedding and I am so glad I chose to go with Beauty in Motion. They did an outstanding job and my makeup and hair looked just as beautiful in the last photo as in the first (after tears, dancing, and everything else!). Thank you Beauty in Motion for giving me a perfect look on my big day!

I was looking for a make-up artist in my area for my wedding and happened across Beauty In Motion when searching on Yelp. When I contacted them through email, Angela answered my right away and suggested that we meet in person at her studio to discuss things. She was very responsive to my emails, which I found to be very helpful and set her apart from the other make-up studios in the area. The studio is very cute and meeting with her put me at ease...I had found my make-up and hair artist! During the trial, Angela worked with me and asked me exactly what type of look I was going for. I showed her different pictures of hair and make-up I had pinned on Pinterest, and she went to work! She even fixed my hair in a different way after we had picked my wedding day hair so that I could have a different hairstyle for my engagement photos which I did later in the day. I was going for a more natural look (and I am also not used to wearing so much makeup), so when I told her that I felt a little self conscious with my eye make-up, she lightened it for me on my wedding day and it felt perfect! I did not feel over done and I still felt like I looked like me, but prettier! Many guests complimented me on my make-up and even my husband (who HATES when I wear make-up) told me that I looked beautiful. Angela did a great job and I am so happy I used her as my make-up artist.Sent on 10/08/2014

I actually discovered Beauty in Motion thru my older sister when she chose Angela to do her hair and make up on her wedding. Everyone was blown away by the quality that my other older sister had made her decision to use Angelas services for her wedding day a year later which I personally got to experience because I was a bridesmaid and a couple months later, a maid of honor for my best friend wedding.Sent on 02/04/2014
So my best friend had chosen another make up artist to do her hair and make up on her wedding day and I compared both my choice (beauty in motion) and my friends choice. There was no doubt in my mind that the quality and service provided by Angela were top notch.
Because my main concern was that I have sensitive skin along with eczema on my face, which will react to any chemical product. All of the products that Angela used on me were hypoallergenic and my sensitive face doesn't break out! Plus Angela doesn't overload on the make up which is a relief because I hate feeling the weight and seeing cake-like make up.
As a maid of honor I had to meet Angela at her studio and I asked for slightly dramatic eyes and showed her a picture of how I wanted my hair half up and later ended up altering the hairstyle because Angela asked me if the hairstyle was what I wanted based on the picture and she suggested pinning the hair to one side and I instantly agreed with her because it made me feel prettier!
I got a lot of surprised and good compliments on my hair and make up. Which made me feel I made the right choice. :)
