I really appreciated the excellent work by Bisi Essien, principal at Crystal Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge. We had a particularly difficult wedding as we were married outdoors in Malibu, California, on the hottest day on record in July. Given the circumstances, Bisi went above and beyond to work with textures to provide sweat free and comforable makeup that suited both my taste and the wedding aestheic. She also stayed throughout for touch ups if needed, never complaining once, though the makeup lasted all day and night with only a few touch ups needed.
The trial the day prior was informative and seamless. Pricing was reasonable & quality was excellent. We were able to talk through adjustments and changes that were well executed on the wedding day.
I would highly recommend Cystal Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge for your wedding or next event.Sent on 07/16/2018

Incredible and smooth experience!
I feel so blessed to have found Crystal-Eyes Makeup & Hair! Bisi and her team are incredible at what they do! Specifically, Bisi was on top of all of the logistics making sure she knew what I wanted for my hair and deployed a great stylist to my location to perform. Catrina did my hair. She was professional, personable and above all did an outstanding job!!!! I couldnt have been more pleased. So grateful for this company!!!Sent on 09/11/2020

The customer services is far above my expectations. Bisi, the owner, made us feel as if we were special and she was always accommodating to our needs.
Due to the global pandemic, the makeup was precisely applied with the required safety measures. Hence, I strongly recommend Crystal Eyez if you have an upcoming special occasion where you want to be immediately appealing and an eye catcher.Sent on 09/09/2020

Bisi was phenomenal!!! I found Crystal-Eyez on The Knot and booked immediately after seeing the reviews and photos. Let me tell you Bisi did not disappoint! This amazing woman traveled all the way from Chicago to make me look flawless for my wedding day. She gave me the perfect make up and hair with little to no direction. It was so nice to have someone come in and already know what to do and how to do it in the middle of a hectic day directing ppl. She was so professional and sweet. Bisi even went above and beyond doing a last minute hair style for my mom. I can’t say enough great things about her. I will be booking with her for all future major events!Sent on 04/29/2019
Crystal-Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge's reply:Aww thanks for such a sweet feedback. It was an absolute pleasure helping to create your flawless wedding day look. Thanks for allowing me to do the honors. You looked absolutely gorgeous! Congratulations on your union!!!

Excellent Experiece!! Seriously Talented MUA!!!
I just got married and I couldn’t be more impressed with how talented Bisi is. First of all, I arrived 10 min late to the venue and saw Bisi and her other MUA set up and ready to go! I had only 1 pack of clip ins for my really thin hair but she worked wonders with it. The make-up was seriously the best I have ever had done my a MUA...and I have been to plenty! She had another artist with her that did my brides maids and mom’s make up. She seriously took 10 years off my mom. She looked fab! I highly highly recommend her and her team.

The crystal eyez team that help on my wedding day made it all the more special! They were not only on time and fun to interact with, they are SKILLED! My bridesmaids and flower girls looked and felt fantastic! Personally, I loved the attention to detail and the flawless look they created for me! It’s stressful and hard to find the right glam team for your special day, so seriously do yourself a favor, stop looking and use these badass ladies!Sent on 12/16/2018

Bisi is the bomb.......... I don't wear makeup but when she was finish with my makeup and when I looked into the mirror I didn't recognize myself. OMG........I was beautiful I must say myself; I received so many compliments that night. Everyone told me I looked like a celebrity and some said I looked like a real live Barbie.
Thank you Bisi!!!!Sent on 10/30/2018
Crystal-Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge's reply:You looked stunning...truly like a celebrity!!! You have one of the best skin I've worked on in a while...made my job too easy! Thanks so much for the review. God bless your union!!

Bisi personalizes your look to make you look amazing. A must-book!
If Bisi of Crystal-Eyez is available on your wedding date, you should book her without hesitation. I couldn't have been happier with how beautiful I looked on that day. What I love most about Bisi is she takes your considerations into account, without compromising her aesthetic style.Sent on 10/31/2018
I am not a fan of a lot of make up, and have had issues with artistes applying a ton of foundation or lashes that feel heavy. I essentially stopped using lashes because I felt so uncomfortable with them. Bisi understood that I wanted a natural look and gave me exactly that. My face felt very light and I couldn't tell I had lashes on. She gave me the perfect hint of color with my lipstick and eye shadows. I truly felt amazing on my wedding day without feeling unrecognizable.
She was extremely professional and punctual throughout the process and gave me a lot of tips on how to apply my foundation. My mom rarely has make up on, and she made her look flawless on as well.
I was lucky enough to have her for the entire night so she was available for my touch up, but I recommend getting her touch up kit if you don't have her for the night. My sisters got the touch up kit, which contains all the essentials for a quick do over.
I still get tons of compliments about how amazing I looked that night and I couldn't have felt that beautiful if Bisi hadn't glammed me up.
Crystal-Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge's reply:This is such a beautiful review. Thanks so much! And thanks for an opportunity to come to Houston to create your flawless wedding look. I never pass up a travel opportunity...esp to somewhere warm :)

The Owner, Bisi, along with another Make-Up Artist, TY, took care of my Bridesmaids, Mothers, Flower Girl and I for my Wedding on 9/9/18! There was a mixture of Airbrushing and Traditional techniques used on my group of ladies, which had various shades of complexions. All of us Looked and Felt Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The level of Professionalism and Skill from the Artists were Top Notch! Highly Recommend!Sent on 09/18/2018

Victoria Breneman · Married on 09/08/2018
HIGHLY recommend them!
I used Crystal Eyez for my wedding and could not have been happier with them!! Bisi was responsive to all questions prior to the wedding day, and did a stunning job on both the trial and the day of makeup and hair! Her team was also amazing and did an incredible job on my bridesmaids and mothers hair and makeup. They were punctual, professional, and fun to have around doing hair and makeup as we were all getting ready! My hair and makeup stayed flawless from the time they finished at 1pm through the entire day, and a night of sleep! I loved Bisi's hair and makeup job so much they are now my go-to spot for hair and makeup for holiday parties and other special events (I travel from Lincoln Square to South Loop for them).Sent on 01/02/2019

Chantalle from Crystal-Eyez did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it was AMAZING!!! I got SOOO many compliments on everything from my curls, to the brows to the lashes to the overall look and blend of everything.Sent on 09/09/2018
I was nervous at first because I came in from out of town for my wedding and wasn't able to do a trial ahead of time. I was put at ease immediately as she arrived on time, and ready to go (she's also pleasant to work with and had a good attitude)! Needless to say, all of my worries were instantly erased when I finally got to see the finished look in the mirror!
The end result was everything I could've asked for and so much more. I even cried during the wedding but still somehow had a flawless look until the end of our day. I would definitely use their services again... Especially Chantalle!!! Thanks!
Crystal-Eyez Makeup & Beauty Lounge's reply:So glad to read how much you loved the whole experience. We actually have a picture of your reaction when you first looked in the mirror....priceless! You were a beautiful bride. Congratulations again!!

I had the pleasure of working with Bisi, she did my makeup and my bridesmaids. I loved my makeup. Bisi was able to bring my idea to life. I showed her pictures of what I wanted. I did not have time to do a makeup trial and I was very happy with my makeup. It lasted throughout the entire day. She was extremely professional and listened to me which I think it is important. Everyone got a ton of compliments. Definitely recommendSent on 11/20/2018

My trial with her was great and I received so many compliments but my wedding day makeup WOW!!! She did an even better job! My now husband and some of my friends and family are still.talkong about my fabulous wedding day makeup. Victoria also did my sister's makeup and she loved it.

Amazing makeup for everyone!
If you want amazing make up Crystal-Eyez is where it's at. Very professional and just awesome with make up. I normally don't wear makeup on my face regularly because it always feels heavy to me. Idk what magic Bisi did but it felt like my own skin when she did my makeup for my wedding. My friends and family that got their makeup done by her said the same thing amazing and flawless. Thanks again!Sent on 10/31/2018

Stephanie · Married on 10/21/2017
I am so happy I went with Bisi and the Team from Crystal-Eyez. I found them through a friend who had her wedding make-up done with Bisi and the team. I loved it, so I knew I wanted to inquire! I then found so many great reviews about them that I was sold! I had 12 bridesmaids and it was important to me to not just have 1-2 artist make my girls get up at 6am. Bisi was so flexible. She brought a total of 4 artists to the hotel (2 make-up and 2 hair). They were able to do the hair/makeup for 12 ladies (24 items!) from 9am-noon. It was great. Everyone looked so sexy and elegant. I will be using Bisi's skills for future events! She was even so kind to let me buy her parking through SpotHero downtown, rather than having to pay to valet all the cars at expensive hotel. I really appreciate her working with me. Thank you so much, Bisi and Team!! I was so happy on my wedding day and you helped that!Sent on 11/09/2017

I highly recommend Crystal-Eyez. I had my makeup done for my rehearsal dinner and also for my wedding. Both days, my makeup was absolutely flawless. The salon is very nice and modern, and the staff are all super friendly. Chellie was very easy to work with, and made sure that the look she gave me was in line with the vision I had for my face for both events. I will definitely use Crystal-Eyez for all of my future makeup needs.Sent on 10/16/2017
