    Samar was amazing! Professional and on time, and really listened to me and my bridal party. Everyone looked stunning, and I got so many compliments on my makeup all night long. Not to mention she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! Highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional makeup

    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

    Samar was an absolute pleasure to work with and is amazing at what she does. She was more than willing to be flexible with last-minute changes to scheduling on our wedding day, and genuinely cares about making you feel beautiful. She is very responsive to phone and email communications, and is fairly priced. She's an absolute sweetheart and I highly recommend her to anyone for makeup services! Thank you Samar!

    I was one of those brides that was a bit nervous about looking too made up. My husband, to top it off, said that he didn't like the airbrush make up I had done as a bridesmaid a year prior, and preferred me "to look more like myself." Samar did a fantastic job on my make up and didn't make me look too made up. My husband loved it! The moms and bridesmaids looked great as well. Samar was very responsive to any questions I had before the big day and was willing to problem solve. I have especially watery eyes, so we decided on a liquid liner, that I brought in myself for the day of the wedding to make the liner stay on longer. All in all, a great experience! Thank you Samar!

    You only need to look at the “before and after” pictures Samar posts to know that she is the woman you want to make you look beautiful on your wedding day. She has a truly amazing gift in her ability to transform you into the most beautiful version of yourself. Every single one of her clients look like they belong on the cover of a magazine, yet every woman still looks exactly like herself. Samar has a gentle, caring spirit and makes you feel like she has known you forever from the moment you meet her. She was reliable, dependable and trustworthy. She will take her time to really hear what you are looking for when she does your makeup trial, and delivers exactly what it is that you are looking for on the day of your big event. She arrived at my house at 5:30 a.m. for my wedding in a timely manner, and was ready to get going. She was so friendly and kind towards each of the ladies in my bridal party. Samar is reliable, dependable, quick to respond and truly gifted at what she does. I would recommend her without hesitation-you will love working with her, and will love the results of her artistry!

    Samar was great! I was a little late in finding someone to do my wedding makeup and she shifted around her appointments to be there on the big day. She was the most responsive and organized out of any of my vendors. I wasn't quite sure what type of makeup I wanted but she walked me through all the options and made sure I was comfortable with everything. She accommodated all the requests made by my bridal party and helped me feel relaxed on the big day. My makeup came out perfect and lasted the whole night!

    In short, Samar was amazing! She came directly to my venue to do my makeup and a couple others in the wedding party. Extremely satisfied with her service and flexibility, starting with an amazing trial and then my wedding weekend. My makeup w/lashes lasted all day and well into the night and looked flawless the entire time! Samar is very kind and reassuring, she definitely felt more like a friend than just another vendor. Was very convenient to just relax and have her come to the venue instead of having to go to a salon. Would highly recommend!!

    Samar was phenomenal. I showed her maybe two inspiration photos and she knew EXACTLY what I wanted. She always was very open to any concerns I had if the makeup was veering towards too formal as my wedding was a day wedding and she was totally fine with whatever. She even was extremely patient with my not so easy going mom and sister the day of. Her makeup turned out beautifully the day of on absolutely everyone and I felt the prettiest I have ever felt thanks to her! HIGHLY RECOMMEND SAMAR!

    Samar was absolutely fabulous! She responds to questions very quickly. As a person of color it can be difficult to find a provider who can match your skin tone and before my trial my friend had shared her horror story of having a make up artist not match her skin tone at all. When I first sat down with Samar, I expressed my anxiety about this and she quickly assured me it would not be a problem. My bridal party was full of diverse women and Samar did an excellent job making us all look beautiful. I would highly recommend Samar's services as she is truly gifted!

    Samar was wonderful to work with! A 10 out of of 10.
    She was very accommodating in all aspects of the booking process. My mother, maid of honor and I fell in love with her warm personality and professionalism from our first consultation! With 8 brides maids and 2 others getting ready before the bride, Samar was efficient and delivered an amazing product with each lady she worked on. Everyone looked beautiful and there was still time to spare! I highly recommend working with Samar if you are looking for a relaxing, wonderful day!

    Samar truly was amazing to work with. She came to the rescue a month before my wedding and was able to squeeze my party in even though she was booked for later that day. She got me in quickly for a trial and did beautiful work. The day of she was on Time, professional, quick, yet still paid attention to detail. She was even able to squeeze in an extra girl. She worked well with the photographer and was kind to everyone. Her rates are extremely reasonable as well. I could not have asked for a better makeup artist. All the girls cannot wait to use her in the future when they get married! ??

    I was very fortunate to have found Samar here on wedding wire. She is a wonderful person and a very talented make-up artist! Samar came to the hotel where my bridesmaids and I were staying which saved all of us time and minimized the wedding stress. Her peaceful demeanor put everyone at ease and each of my bridesmaids was able to get the look that they wanted. I do not normally use much make-up and Samar helped me to maintain the more natural look that I had hoped for. The make-up felt very light and it stayed fresh the entire night without having to do touch-ups. I highly recommend contacting Samar for YOUR special day :)
