First off She made us all look so Beautiful!!! I was skeptical about hiring a make up artist for my self, mom's and bridesmaids for my wedding. I did some research and called a few people but after viewing Ravens website and speaking to her on the phone I knew she was a perfect fit! Hiring Raven to do our make up was one one the best decision I could ever make in the whole planning process. She is the sweetest person, punctual and helped transform my girls and I into goddesses!! she new exactly how much time to plan for each person and all was smooth and on schedule. Raven is so talented and a perfectionist. Thank you for making me look so beautiful on my special day!!!
Thank you so much, Christina! I'm so touched by your review. Thank you for having me as your makeup artist, it was a joy!
Raven truly knows how to enhance and woman’s natural beauty and make her “photo ready”! I was blown away at how beautiful I felt - and I think my man about fell over when he saw me for our engagement shoot. On top of it, she was sweet as pie and so fun to be around. I’d recommend her over and over! The. Best.
It is so hard trusting someone with one of the most important days of your life. I am so grateful that I found Raven, not only are her skills impeccable but she has such a warm and beautiful personality. My bridal party was very diverse in skin tones, blemishes and age. She really captured everyone’s needs and made them look stunning. I have used her for two wedding, one of them my own and I will continue to work with her. Truely a great artist for a very reasonable price.
Raven was an amazing makeup artist! She made me feel truly beautiful on my wedding day!
Raven is amazing! From communicating throughout the process, explaining everything and going over options with me during my trial, and doing such a beautiful and professional job on myself and my bridal party. Everyone was so thrilled with their make-up, and it was all because of her. Bonus: she is as sweet is she is professional! Thank you, Raven!
I was extremely lucky to find Raven. I saw photos of her work and instantly wanted to set up a trial for my Camarillo wedding at the end of August 2017. She was able to accommodate my schedule and set up a trial that weekend, given that I live in Riverside, CA (~2.5 hours away).
As you can see from her portfolio, she does all kinds of styles from natural to glam. I NEVER wear makeup so I definitely wanted a more natural look. She made my skin glow and look flawless, yet it was not heavy. I naturally have red spots due to allergies and on top of that ended up breaking out the day of. This had to be because of the stress from the wedding (I am already 30 years old) and yet can't see them! She also works with all skin types; my wedding party of eight women had Hispanic, Asian, African-American, and Caucasian skin tones.
It took me awhile to post this review because I was waiting for my wedding photos. Here are some photos at different times of the day, both indoor and outdoor:
•First picture was taking when Raven was applying my makeup at 8:30am.
•Second picture of bridal party around 2pm. All the girls in the photo had their makeup done with me.
•Third photo was taken at reception in the barn around 5pm.
•Last two pictures were part of the sunset photos, taken around 7pm-ish.
I was astonished how the makeup stayed on all day, with no touch ups, even on a warm summer day! I highly recommend Raven to any bride that wants to feel beautiful all day long.
I greatly Enjoyed working with raven for my wedding. She worked hard to make sure I was happy by adjusting to my concerns. My makeup lasted all night and was very comfortable. My bridesmaids and moms also loved their makeup and the experience they had with raven.
Raven is an exceptionally talented make up artist! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to feel pretty and beautiful! She has the eye for making you feel you’re best! She was my make up artist for my wedding and I got so many compliments on my make up. And I never felt more beautiful on my special day!
Raven was great with giving me a natural look for my wedding. Even when I went against her suggestions, she was very accommodating and made sure to create the look I wanted. Makeup stayed flawless under the LA sun during an outdoor ranch wedding in July :)
Hello. My name is Diana. I was searching for good make up artist for my special event 2 days before New Year and let me tell you, I called lots of places but some were sayuing it was a very short notice and some were booked in advance. And when, I was about to give up, I saw Raven website and decided to take a last chance to see if I get lucky. I called and left my phone number with my name on her answering machine and got a phone call back almost immidiately. She sounded like very sweet woman and scheduled appointment with me in a short notice. I was extremely happy and excited ,because it was my first time ,getting professional make up done. I met Raven in person, on day of my make up appointment and she was soo nice and professional. I explained and showed her some pictures what i like and she did her magic. I was sitting on chair and waited to see final results. When she showed me myself in the mirror, I was speechless, thinking who is this girl? Raven is very detail oriented and perfectionist of her work. I truly amazed ,how good she is, in what she did to me. I would recommend her to my friends and everyone up there, who want to look gorgeous!!! Thank you so much!!! Will be back soon again. Diana T
Raven did an amazing job! My makeup, as well as my mother-in-laws, was flawless and it didn't streak when I cried or when I was eating. The trial was super helpful so I could see what my makeup would be like on the actual day. She was super professional, giving tips and tricks for skin care and making sure that my skin was as perfect as it could be for the actual day. On the actual day, makeup was flawless and looked even better than it did when we did the trial. We changed up a few things, but all in all, the look was exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend Raven to anyone who is looking for someone who knows what she's doing and being in the business for awhile.
I highly recommend Raven for any occasion to do makeup. She is professional, knowledge, talented, an artist and a perfectionist. She delivers what she says that she will, and she brings out the best in us ladies. For my big red carpet Oscar night, Raven gave me a polished and elegant look, brought out my best features, and her makeup gave me extra confidence to do my job well on that very important night. Raven is also very pleasant to work with. She is on time, has a large collection of makeup and tools, prices her services fairly, brings her own makeup chair, listens and delivers what her client asks of her, and is willing to travel to you. She's a rare breed in this competitive market, and is pure quality. Thank you, Raven.
Raven did my daughters birthday make-up and we couldn't have asked for more !! Her talent and skill is unbelievable and she has a wonderful personality to top it off. I would recommend her 10 out of 10 to anyone looking to make their special day wonderful. Thank You Raven !! (:
She is very sweet, professional and flexible ;)
I found Raven through putting out a mass request for a makeup artist through wedding wire late at night. I was panicking and my original makeup artist pulled out 7 days before the wedding. Within minutes I received an email and the following day a phone call. She had a commitment later that day and was upfront about the timeframe she would be available. She waived the booking fee and due to lack of time we didn't have a trial session. She sent me her Pinterest page and from those pictures I knew that it would be fine. She was punctual to the appointment and so nice! She made both my bridesmaid and myself look amazing and it lasted all day and night! No reapplication needed and even though I lost my lipstick, chapstick was enough... the makeup didn't budge! She is very talented and would love to take some lessons from her in the future. A true professional!
Thanks so much Diana! Can't wait to see the photos! xoxo
I can't say enough great things about Raven and her team! They were on time, friendly and made everyone in the bridal party feel extra special. We even had last minute additions for make up and were accommodated with no problems. I highly recommend Makeup by Raven. I am so please with the service we received and will definitely book Raven again for a special occasion!
I was very nervous hiring someone to do my makeup for my wedding. I don't wear very much makeup on a daily basis. Thankfully I hired Raven! From our first email conversation, to our phone and text conversations she was so sweet and attentive to what I wanted and had envisioned for my big day. She arrived right on time for the trial and I was so amazed at the results! It was everything I wanted and more. I felt so beautiful and it was thanks to her. She is so talented! I of course hired her to do my wedding makeup and it came out wonderful! I never looked or felt more beautiful! I will be contacting her in the future when I need my makeup done.

Raven was amazing! She's very punctual and an amazing makeup artist!
I highly recommend !! She did a fabulous job !! Also very pleasant to be with Worth every penny
Raven did an awesome job on my make up for my wedding ceremony. I got a lot of complements on my make up, they said I looked stunning. I would highly recommend her for all women out there if you looking for a makeup artist. Raven is really talented and very professional. A+++
I've always been apprehensive with getting my makeup done for events because I've had some negative experiences in the past, and because I feel like I can do my own makeup pretty well, so I rarely trust someone else with my face. Raven exceeded every expectation I had. She listened to exactly what I wanted, asked for feedback to ensure I was getting what I wanted, and was so approachable that I actually felt comfortable telling her if I wanted something different. I met her for a trial and she was so easy to talk to and made the experience so relaxing that I knew she was perfect for my wedding day. On the day of my wedding she arrived on-time with another makeup artist who was helping her get through the 11 faces they had to get done, and they were on schedule with every single girl. She made sure at every moment that I was having the best wedding day, and made my bridesmaids feel so comfortable.
As for the makeup--- it was flawless. We were going for a natural look and every single girl looked amazing. We left my wedding at 11pm and our makeup was still perfect. As a matter of fact, I was so tired that night that I didn't wash my face, and woke up the next day with PERFECT makeup. I'm not even kidding. Thank you Raven for making my day so amazing, and for being such a wonderful, lovely woman to work with. I couldn't recommend you more!
Raven is an incredibly talented makeup artist, clearly. However, I have to gush about her hair talents as well! On the day of our engagement photo shoot, I asked completely last-minute if she could "please do something with this mop" and she whipped out a beautiful look in no time. It's so convenient to have a "go-to" gal who can do it all in one stop. What's more is that this woman is one of the kindest, gentlest souls you will ever meet and it shines in her craft. She made me feel so comfortable and genuinely shared my excitement! I wish I could convince her to move in with me and get me ready for each and every day. Thank you again, Miss Raven, for sprinkling your pixie dust on that fun day. Will be back for more!
I hired Raven for my wedding this past weekend and she did an Amazing job! I kept getting compliments on my makeup all night long! Thanks to Raven i felt beautiful on my special day! :) if you're looking for a professional who not does an amazing job but also treats her clients with the utmost respect, i would highly reccomend Raven!
Raven did an awesome job for my wedding in Malibu! She is very responsive over email, easy to communicate with, VERY accommodating (brought on other artists/hair people to do the entire wedding party & family who were both excellent as well!!), and overall great at what she does AND at a great price! My make-up was gorgeous for the trial and for the wedding -- she's also very flexible and works with you to make certain that you're comfortable & love your look. She did an awesome job and is highly recommended! Thanks again Raven for the amazing job!
Raven was wonderful! Loved her! She did an amazing job on my makeup for my wedding!! It lasted all day for my outdoor California wedding in July! Everyone complimented me all day and I loved it! She was very professional as well and great with communicating through texts and emails! We did a trial session as well which was also great. Great prices, sweet person and wonderful makeup artist I would definitely recommend her to anyone!! She did my mom, my sister and my friend's makeup as well for the wedding and everyone looked beautiful! A friend of mine wanted to book her for her wedding, but she was already booked (darn!) for that date. Definitely get her while you can!! Thanks again Raven, we loved you!
