    Cheekadee was perfect! Jo was very responsive and accommodating with all my emails an requests. Nina and Aja were fantastic the day of! I have a few girls who are very picky about their makeup, and a few who hate makeup. Everyone came out beautiful and loved their makeup job. I would highly recommend booking with this group!

    Nina was incredible! I have a pretty large scar on my nose and she made it disappear completely and truly made me feel beautiful. She also did the MOH, my aunt, and the 2 mothers, and everyone looked fantastic. I was very happy with the price, time and concern Nina and the Cheekadee team put in to making my day a success.

    I had my wedding makeup with Nina and it was absolutely worth every penny. Nina did a wonderful job with me and my family members!! I would definitely recommend Cheekadee Makeup Artists to anyone looking for wedding makeup or for any other occasion!! I am particularly happy with the quality of service and the fast response to all my inquires, especially as I am not from the Philadelphia area and the tip and recommendations I got for other vendors in the area very very helpful!

    I was recently married this past June and was so happy to have my bridal party and my make up done for the Big Day!! It was the best decision ever!!! I was nervous and they made me feel very comfortable! Cheekadee was very professional and fun through the whole process! I want to give a big thanks to Aja and her team for doing an incredible job! My make up looked amazing, I wish I could look that good everyday! My mom and bridesmaids were also glowing, gorgeous and so happy! You made us look and feel so beautiful!!! Thanks Cheekadee!!! You are the best!!!

    Nina did a great job on makeup for our wedding last weekend! She made me and my four bridesmaids look gorgeous, and we were all commenting on the amazing "transformation" that was taking place as Nina performed her magic. It was so special to see my maid of honor, whom I lived with for four years and almost never dresses up, look absolutely stunning after Nina and the hair stylist were done with her.

    Nina was also super accommodating. On the morning of our wedding, my mom was finally convinced to get her hair and makeup done, too, and Nina made time to work on her at the last minute. Also, my wedding had a Catholic and Hindu component and spanned two days, so Nina came to the hair salon on the morning of the second day to do my makeup once again. She did a great job with both the more traditional/natural look on the first day and with a bolder palette of colors to match my purple sari on the second day.

    I'd definitely recommend Nina to anyone who is looking for an experienced artist to make them and their girlfriends beautiful on their wedding day! We loved her and the work she did on our bridal party!!

    I had a makeup lesson with Nina and it was a tremendously useful investment of time and money. I was never completely confident in my makeup application techniques, and always felt I was sort of "guessing" in picking colors and products. Before our lesson, Nina accompanied me to Sephora to pick products that met my needs and skin type. Just the foundation alone that Nina picked for me - which is a perfect color match and the right formulation for my super dry skin - was worth our time together. Every morning when I apply it I am silently thanking Nina! She also picked a concealer that, with no exaggeration, was the first I have ever used that actually hides my awful dark circles. Nina truly has a gift for choosing products - and also for educating! It was clear that Nina had prepared ahead of time for our makeup lesson, during which she explained and documented all of her makeup application techniques in great detail. Since our lesson, I have received so many compliments on my appearance. I am so grateful for Nina, and can't wait to work with her again in the future!!!

    I recently arranged for a group Makeup Lesson with Nina and Hailey and I could not be happier. Both of them were patient and helpful and and made us feel free to ask as many questions as we needed. They took their time in going over all of the basics and everyone in the group came away looking amazing. Best of all, now we have the knowledge and confidence to do our make up on our own. I look forward to more interactions with the Cheekadee Makeup Artist, we will definitely be using them in the future!

    My mom and I spent the afternoon with Nina for makeup lessons and they were fantastic. She is well-versed and was so thorough with both of us. We both left with detailed instructions of how to repeat our looks and a shopping list of great products. I could tell that it was very important to Nina that we both felt comfortable with the techniques we were trying and had every one of our questions answered. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to build confidence in their makeup techniques or for support in selecting the right cosmetics for your face/skin type. She's wonderful!

    Hailey & Meghan were FANTASTIC. I am so obsessed and elated with how all of my bridesmaids makeup turned out, and mine as well. Everything from start to finish was so smooth and efficient and like I said, we looked FABULOUS. It also was really nice to have such social people with me getting ready. It felt like we knew them for years and it was just friends hanging out with me the day of my wedding. I cannot give them enough stars or recommend them to enough people. I will 100% be using their services any and every chance I get!

    Cheekadee Makeup Artists came to a rental house to provide services to prepare myself and close relatives for my son's wedding. The artist was punctual, professional, and pleasant. We were confronted with some dilemmas of having the power go off and the back up generators not working, however the artist remaind calmand collected and performed her job with perfection. Everyone commented on how beautiful everyone's make up was. I highly recommend Cheekadee Makeup artists!

    Nina was great and everyone looked amazing!!! She even did a little make up for our 9 year old flower girl. She really listened to my vision of what I wanted to look like for the wedding. She wanted to make sure everything was perfect before the trial was over, so there were no questions the day of the wedding. Her thorough attitude made me very confident that I would look exactly as envisioned on the day of the wedding. Would definitely recommend!!!

    From the first moment that I contacted Cheekadee about makeup services for my wedding, it was a great experience. Jo was wonderful and so responsive to every question that I had. She managed to work out all of the payments and details for me so that on the day of, everything was taken care of and ran smoothly. We used Nina to do the bride's makeup, the mother of the bride and all of the bridesmaids. Not only is she super sweet, but she really knows what she's doing, and what looks best for everyone's skin type. For the trial, she looked at pictures and checked in as we went along to make sure everything looked just as I wanted. She was able to make tweaks to make sure that everything looked perfect before I left. On the day of, she was extremely flexible with us. We were running a little late from our hair appointment, but once we arrived, she was still able to get all of the girls done on time, and everyone looked fabulous. The girls loved their makeup and thought that Nina did a great job with listening to what they wanted. I absolutely loved my makeup, and thought it looked flawless. I also loved how everything photographed in our wedding pictures. I would highly recommend Cheekadee, and Nina! You won't be disappointed!

    For under $1000, Cheekadee did my wedding day makeup, that of 4 bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride. The coordinator, Jo, was on top of things every step of the way, and my makeup artist, Kim, was outstanding. Kim was not only incredibly talented but also extremely professional and my makeup came out EXACTLY as I requested it at my makeup trial. I couldn't be happier with their services!!

    Nina was great. She was receptive to my desire to not look as though I was wearing a ton of makeup. She made my eyes amazingly beautiful and somehow just seemed to "amplify" everything else. I highly recommend!

    I highly recommend Cheekadee! They were very responsive and helpful. When I lost my hair stylist at the last minute they quickly helped me to find Meghan, who was wonderful! Nina did my makeup for my wedding day as well as the makeup for my two step daughters and two sisters. She also ended up doing makeup for my grandmother, which was a last minute request. She was so kind and we had such a good time with her. She made us all feel beautiful. The makeup was glamorous and natural at the same time. I hope to work with Cheekadee again and will be recommending them every time I have a chance!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Cheekadee! I have been in my fair share of weddings and typically do my own makeup. I am very into makeup and pride myself on my makeup artistry ability therefore when it came time to find someone for my wedding- I knew it would be no easy feat. Cheekadee made it an easy choice, Nina was fabulous and really listened to what I envisioned for my makeup. Her attention to detail is amazing and is why she is so talented. Nina and Kim were an amazing team on my wedding day, they made things run smoothly and did not run behind on the schedule. My girls looked amazing and I am SO GLAD I hired them. You can not go wrong with this company, I mean have you read their bio- it speak volumes for how seasoned they are. Seriously, check them out. They will not disappoint!

    Hiring Cheekadee for my daughter's wedding (after a bad trial with another company) was one of the best decisions I made.
    Nina is absolutely amazing! This extremely talented & professional artist did makeup for me, my daughter & four attendants (graciously agreeing to do one unscheduled service at the last minute so the Matron of Honor could also have her make-up done)
    Everyone loved their looks. My daughter, the bride, looked absolutely gorgeous and Nina even managed to please this fussy, "make-up sensitive" MOB! My eyes are very tear prone, but using a combination of Nina's make-up & my own favorites, she was able to create a look that was not only beautiful - it was also very comfortable! (I even managed to wear false lashes!)
    Thank you , Nina - we received so many compliments at the wedding & you were a pleasure!!!

    Wow! Katie Custer and Wesley did an amazing job with 7 bridesmaids, me the bride and my mother. We all had different skin tones and different ideas of what we wanted and they had only met three of us before the day of the wedding. We looked and felt like flawless beauties - and not only did it look great, the makeup stayed on from about 10am - midnight on a hot (80+ degree day). They are also all beyond lovely people and I will be using them again every occasion i can!
