Karina is amazing! She's so kind, professional, and creative. She works well with all skin types and tones. My bridesmaids were all different skin tones and Karina managed to make us all look flawless! She was ealry to set up the day of my wedding and moved quickly to get us all done on time. Not only did she make me feel and look beautiful for my special day, she literally made me glow!!!I wore a backless wedding gown for my summer wedding and Karina made me feel so confident by applying a beatiful bronze to my back, shoulders, and chest. I received so many compliments on my makeup and my bridesmaids make up.
Prior to my wedding, I met Karina at her home for my bridal trial. Her makeup space in her home was nice, comfortable, and very organized. She did a thorough trial and got my ideal look down to a T. She documented every detail so she was prepared for day of the wedding. The day of the wedding she provided my bridesmaids and I with little touch up bags to keep our makeup flawless throughout the day.
Karina is hands down, the best. She made the process effortless by being so detailed, organized, professional, easy going and truly skilled at what she does. She is beyond talented with her makeup skills and used the top products.
I literally cannot thank her enough for how beautiful she made me and my girl feels and how effortless she made the entire process.

Everyone knows how stressful it is planning a wedding. Looking for the perfect makeup artist is just as important as looking for the perfect dress! I am so glad I found Karina. She is amazing with her craft and her personality just tops it off. You can tell she is not "just doing" your makeup, but she is putting her heart into your special day making you feel comfortable and beautiful! She is a sweetheart and I couldn't recommend anyone better than her. She guest 5 stars from me! ( BONUS: She even give you a little touch up kit with a bit of lipstick and emergency Q-Tips for teary moments. Remember ladies; "only dab the tear ducts!")

If you are looking for a natural and glamorous look, Karina is your girl! I have known Karina for many years and her personality is reflected through her work. She’s sweet and cares about every detail. She always asks what kind of makeup products you use, and the look you are gravitating towards. With this information, her experience and her artistry, she gives you the result you want and much more.
During your makeup trial, she always checks in to see if you are satisfied with what she is doing. The day of the wedding, she kept me very calm, which I’m sure we all need!
Words cannot express how much I loved my make-up! It was simple and natural, yet a more glamorous version of myself and I’m sure you will feel the same way!
Karina is a professional and has an extensive knowledge of different types of makeup products, looks and techniques. I would highly recommend her!

I’ve worked with makeup professionals in several major cities including LA and Karina is the absolute best. From the start she made me feel relaxed and excited. Intertwined with her artistic professionalism was a sincere kindness and consideration for my comfort. She made me the most beautiful I’ve been and for the I’m eternally grateful. Plus- my makeup lasted all night! I wouldn’t trade my wedding experience with her for anyone else in the world!

I highly recommend Karina's services as she did a wonderful job. I have been to several makeup artists in the valley and none of them compare to her. Not only was my makeup beautiful but she was easy to work with and responded to all my inquiries right away. I will definitely be contacting her for my next event.

Karina is amazing- her talent has not gone to her head as she is also the sweetest person to work with.
Her skill allows her to be multi-faceted, I would recommend her to anyone for any occasion.

Karina was the absolute best choice we could have made for my sister's wedding! After months of trying to find the right MUA, we were sold on Karina from the moment we met her!
She is kind, informative and so very sweet! Her personality and vibes were the absolute best, not to mention her skills.
As a women of color, I have never been so satisfied with my makeup. Even after years of trying, I myself, havent even been able to achieve the perfect color for my skin tone and she did it on the first try!
Karina is VERY professional and went above and beyond our expectations at a very affordable rate. On a very hectic wedding day, Karina and her personality were exactly what we needed. Our makeup lasted all day on a hot, 115 degree, Arizona day without needing touch ups!! Cant thank her enough
