Rating Neetu 5-stars all around was super easy for me. I've worked with Neetu over a dozen times and I'm always looking forward to seeing her next. She is defiantly my go to makeup artist because not only she's very bubbly and sweet, she's punctual! It's so important to me that my MUA is on time and she has never let me down! Also her kit/products look clean and smell nice, hygiene is a must. I never have to worry when she is in control of my face and hair cause she knows what shes doing! Neetu has done several of my photo shoot makeup as well as my grad makeup and hair.

Amazing experience!

Neetu was wonderful and did an amazing job with my wedding hair/makeup! She took the time to figure out what I wanted during the trial and the wedding day makeup ended up just how I wanted it. She gave me some tips to prep in the months leading up to the wedding which I truly appreciated and advice and recommendations on how the look would work with my accessories. I would definitely recommend her to any future brides!

Neetu is who you want!

Neetu was my makeup artist for my wedding this past April. I completely, and wholeheartedly recommend her services to you! We did a trial and day of hair and makeup. I 10000% percent recommend to folks to take the opportunity for a trial, as it's a great opportunity to get to know Neetu, and to collaborate on ideas, try out the looks and make any adjustments for the actual big day. Neetu transformed me into a Punjabi bride, and I felt absolutely fabulous. My make up stayed all day and so did my hair and accessories. She was prompt in all of her communications, administration and arrival times. She was also very helpful in letting me know what would work for my skin texture, how to keep the skin matte for all the flash photography, and gave me skincare prep ideas before the big day. Neetu also was realistic about the issues with editing these days and validated that it is normal for skin to have texture, all the while doing a great job of making me look my best. Her team of contractors also did an amazing job on my family members hair/make-up. She had me ready in time for my photoshoot that morning and stayed with me until it was time to leave so that I could be securely pinned for the gurdwara. Neetu was a lovely person to connect with and I appreciated who she was as a person, which is important when spending lots of time with your make up artist. Neetu does amazing work, and the pictures of Afterglow Studios really do speak for themselves - with her fabulous editorial and bridal looks. Thank you Neetu, you're amazing. All the best to you and I hope we get to work together again one day soon!

Afterglow Studio Review

My wedding day wouldn't have been possible without Afterglow Studios. They were professional, flexible, understanding, and tried their best to meet my needs. Value was a little on the steep side but needless to say, I was satisfied with my look and my mothers look. I would've also liked communication to be faster, emails were received within a week, but it was understood the amount of high volume of emails and requests that were sent in after covid. Overall, they made me look like a bride and I was very happy with my look.

Amazing hair and makeup!

Neetu and her team did an amazing job with the hair and makeup of my entire bride squad! We got so many compliments throughout the day. Neetu really listens to what you want and knows all the right questions to ask to make sure she’s giving you exactly what you need! There wasn’t a single thing I would have changed about my hair and makeup for the big day.

Disappointed

When I first contacted Neetu she was wonderful. My first meeting went so well I knew I wanted to use her on my wedding day. I booked my consultation and that went good too. I liked the look we came up with and she was very reasonable with her pricing. On the day of my wedding she came over on time which I greatly appreciated however after that is when the disappointment began. Neetu was not friendly or personable. She and her hair stylist barely spoke to me. Turns out after dressing me I did not like my look at all but didn’t even have time to let her know because they were packed up and gone. Everyone I look at my wedding pictures I am so disappointed that I have made arrangements to do another photo shoot using another makeup artist.

I have never looked more beautiful

The entire experience of working with Neetu and team for the ‘Queen Bee’ bridal package was amazing. All my bridesmaids, mother and mother in law never looked more beautiful as we all got our hair and makeup done through afterglow studios. The makeup trial, touch up kit and extreme flexibility of services even during the pandemic were beyond expectations. Bridal makeup was so beautiful I felt confident and 🤩 pretty. Never received so many compliments in my life!!

Showered With Compliments!

Afterglow Studios is amazing! We booked for my sister's wedding a few years and loved her so much that we booked for my wedding this year. Neetu is amazingly skilled at what she does! I got so many compliments on my makeup and she tailored it to exactly what I wanted. It came out beautiful in person and in photos and turned out exactly how I was hoping! Neetu is so kind and works hard to understand your vision and give you exactly what you're looking for. The studio was so prompt with communication throughout the booking process, checking in beforehand to give skin tips and had a very thorough COVID-19 cleaning protocol which made me feel super safe. They were also super flexible with last minute scheduling changes due to getting married during a pandemic and I can't recommend them enough!

Amazing results and customer service!

I highly recommend Neetu and her team for bridal makeup services. I had my bridal makeup done as well as 4 bridesmaids and my mom. Not only were the prices reasonable, the results on the day of were stunning! We received a lot of compliments on our hair and makeup and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. As a bonus, her and her team were so fun to work with and helped ease my pre-wedding stress with their jokes and reassurance. It was so nice to get ready in the comfort of my own home and have them bring their kits to us.

Leading up to the wedding, Neetu helped me figure out what I wanted my makeup to look like during the makeup/hair trial. I don't wear makeup very often so I was anxious about looking over-done or not looking like myself. Neetu took the time to work with me and help me figure out what looked best, and made sure that I felt that everything was perfect! She did a natural look for all of us and made us all look gorgeous. Exceptional customer service AND results. Neetu was super flexible and very responsive over email, and we both communicated our expectations well with each other which made the day of the wedding such a breeze. Thank you Neetu and team! I'd love to work with you again in the future and would recommend them to anybody looking for makeup for their wedding!
