    Samar was absolutely outstanding!!! She was punctual, friendly, and so efficient. I am such a spiritual person, and the positive vibe Samar radiates is truly extraordinary. My ladies and I looked and felt gorgeous. Thank you Samar.

    We loved working with Samar. She took care of makeup for myself, my three bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law. Some of us wanted a more dramatic look while others wanted something simpler. Samar made all of us look stunning. Our venue didn't have the best conditions, but she made the best of it. She's incredibly easy to talk to, which makes the process all the more fun. I cannot recommend Samar enough.

    Samar was great! She is very responsive, from the first e-mail I sent her inquiring about her services to day-of details. We did a trial, but I decided to change a few details last minute and Samar made it happen. My mom looked great as well, she doesn't wear much makeup and looked very tired, but Samar made her look bright eyed!

    I met Samar when she did my make up for my sisters wedding and she did a phenomenal job on al the bridesmaids including my sister (the bride). She is the sweetest! Shes amazing at what she does and gives you the exact look you want or better. Two years later, I got engagaed and she was the first and only person I wanted to do my make up and I was lucky to have her be a part of my special day. I highly recommend her - she communicates well, great to work with, and does an awesome job. She listens and give you feedback on the look you want. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and I have Samar to thank for that!!

    Not only is Samar INCREDIBLE at what she does, she was extremely helpful in the months leading up to the wedding. She was always easy to get in touch with and responded to emails within an hour or two. She really listened to what look I was going for and did it perfectly on the day of the wedding.

    Samar was incredible! She made me feel so beautiful for my wedding day. She was perfectly on time and always responded quickly throughout the planning process. The airbrush and eyelashes felt so light and natural. Even two other people who didn’t get their makeup done decided to get eyelashes last minute because we all had such great things to say about them! Samar made me feel comfortable immediately and helped me get the exact look I was hoping for. I wish I was getting married every day so I have an excuse for Samar to keep doing my makeup!!

    Samar was amazing - everyone in my wedding was so pleased with what she did! She arrived promptly, was super nice and professional and just did a great job. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup and she was able to make my makeup look natural and beautiful. She was open to using some products that I brought given some sensitivities with eye makeup. We got married on a super hot day and the makeup (airbrush) last ALL day and night. I would HIGHLY recommend her!!!

    Samar is a very talented makeup artist. She was extremely responsive via email and very flexible the entire time whether it be changes in services or altering times of arrival.

    Samar is amazing! I would hire her 1,000 times over. She made me look amazing on my wedding day. My makeup lasted all day!

    Samar was amazing! I could not have asked for a better experience. Not only was she incredibly responsive, but she was able to create the exact look that I always dreamed of for my wedding. My bridal part was equally happy with their makeup and my mom, who had never had her makeup done, let Samar do her makeup and was so happy. I would recommend Samar in a heartbeat!

    Samar is very talented, so incredibly sweet and easy to talk to! But beyond that she will listen and adjust what you need so you still feel like you. I loved my soft boho look she created for my outdoor wedding. I would recommend her over and over again.

    Samar was absolutely fantastic! She did such an amazing job on the makeup for my wedding party, including for my mother who is hard to trust others with her makeup! (My mom loved her makeup!). Samar was so flexible. I didn't love the color of my eye shadow day of, and she quick fixed it with a color I loved! She did such an amazing job on my makeup, I am so lucky to have her as my makeup artist! Hire Samar, you'll be glad you did! :)

    I consider myself a lucky bride, not only because I got to marry my best friend, but because I got to spend my day with vendors who I genuinely loved being around. As soon as I met Samar, I knew we would hit it off. She is not only the most warm-hearted, kindest person who is passionate about her trade, but someone who really cares about your vision and making you feel beautiful - just as every bride should! She is beyond talented at what she does and made me feel and look like the best version of myself on one of the most important days of my life. For someone who is comfortable applying makeup, I had a high standard for the person I chose for my big day. Samar knocks it out of the park - every. single. time. On my day she did 4 maids, 2 moms and myself without a hitch and ahead of schedule! Also, her and Julie (from Do's and Dye's by Julie) are such a dynamic duo - I loved how well the work together! I have used Samar's services several times at this point and will refer her to absolutely any bride. Samar, thank you for EVERYTHING. I am forever grateful and so happy to have found you! Always with love, Gina xo

    Samar was so great! Where do I start?! She was so responsive to emails and always followed up the same day for all of my questions (I had a lot). Samar was so accommodating, leading up to my wedding day, and even on the day when we last minute added my aunt to the makeup line up (12 people total!). She was fast, efficient and made everyone look flawless! She is so kind and genuinely wants everyone to be happy! I am so glad I chose Samar for my wedding day make-up and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants flawless make-up at a competitive price!

    I am so glad that I decided to get my makeup done for my wedding with Samar! I originally wanted to do my own makeup but then when I thought about how nervous I'd be the day of, I called Samar and set up a trial. She listened to what I wanted and we came up with the perfect look. She is very patient too! I called her the week of the wedding to see if she could squeeze my mother-in-law in for makeup and she was very accommodating with the last minute change. We had a tighter timeline and she made it work! She did a great job with making sure I stayed calm and relaxed during the morning! Thank you for everything Samar! I felt beautiful for my big day.

    Thank you Samar for being part of my special day! For being the ONLY artist I? spoke to that was willing to do my small party of 2, for doing not one but 2 trials with me, for being patient when I? changed my mind 3 times ;) for not over charging and breaking the bank, for the DAY of the wedding being patient when 2 extra people decided they wanted airbrush. Samar is wonderful and I’d recommend her to anyone
