Wonderful artist

Alisa is a wonderful artist. She came early with Rose Corbo, the hair stylist. They both did a wonderful job on me, my step daughter and two of my friends who did not ask for their services on first place. She also gave us valuable advice on products we should use. I recommend her strongly.

Very talented

Planning my wedding through the pandemic, I found the most difficult decision to make was choosing a makeup and hair team that I could trust. It was evident that Alisa was very reputable and had strong industry knowledge and from our first meeting I knew I found my person. She’s very talented and kind, and provided top notch service to me and my party. Her packages are reasonably priced. Book her and you will not be disappointed.

Alisa is a lifesaver!

Our makeup artist canceled one week before our wedding, I found Alisa’s name and had heard some good things from a friend who was married a year earlier and I’m so glad I found her! Her and the other makeup artist were amazing! They showed up early, set up and got to work. My makeup was gorgeous, as a non-makeup wearer, she was able to recommend colours and shades for my complexion and the right lashes for my face shape. She has a great, fun personality and everyone enjoyed chatting with her and her partner. I would definitely recommend her! She was also very safe when it came to covid precautions, wearing a mask and washing her hands frequently.

Alisa and Frances were incredible. Everyone looked incredible and we were done an hour early, so we could take more photos!

Experienced

Alisa has been in the business for years! She subcontracted my hair out to Hair Master (svitlana) and I could not have been happier with both makeup and hair! I had 5 girls need both makeup and hair and it was a well oiled machine the morning of. Alisa also subcontracted Sadda but I never knew until the evening before my wedding and therefore she never charged me (not all vendors may have waived that!!) she can do all ethnicities of makeup, my bridesmaids were Chinese and she did their makeup quite naturally without having one standard one-size-fits-all look that tends to be with inexperienced makeup artists. Svitlana is a master of her hair craft, she can literally do anything you ask her, and she is super nice!! She works wonders :) Svitlana also makes her own hair accessories out of real pearls and modelling clay which are very reasonable given the quality and craftsmanship (I got two small flower pins for 80$) without Alisa I would have never discovered Svitlana, they are a power combo and work very well together! But of course there is no pressure to go with both, you could always go with one or the other!

Wonderful Make-Up Artist

Alisa is truly a blast to work with! I did my engagement shoot, Bridal Shower, and wedding day make-up with her, and each time, she made me feel so incredibly beautiful and confident. She also did my bridesmaids and JR bridesmaids for the wedding, and they loved her! She gives you tips for your skin throughout the sessions, and offers all the expert advice she can to help you in the future. Alisa was so flexible throughout the COVID wedding planning process, and always checked in to make sure things were okay. I feel as though she is now part of my family! I would highly recommend her to everyone that needs their makeup done! Thank you Alisa for everything!

Look no further for a make-up artist

Alisa and her assistant Saada did my, my bridesmaids, and mom's makeup on my wedding day. They were punctual and worked efficiently as a team, taking into consideration each of our skin types, features and individual requests to create beautiful looks for each of us. My mom in particular has ezcema and I have an allergy to perfumed products and we were relieved to know that Alisa uses products that work with our sensitivities. Not only is Alisa skilled in her craft, she is lovely to work with - responsive, easygoing, funny, kind. I would absolutely recommend Alisa as a makeup artist!

Alisa is a kind soul, who provides high quality service to her clients.

She was the first and only makeup artist I did a trial with and I knew she was the done and I didn't look further! She was right on time on the wedding day at 6AM and set up her station and worked through 6 bridesmaids and me in 5 hours!

Just make sure to plan the day and setup a rotation for makeup and hair and stick to the schedule. and you won't have to worry about the time. My hair stylist and Alisa worked really well together and we were all ready on time!

Everyone was so happy with her work! Couple of my girls who never had good experience with fake lashes asked Alisa to put on lashes for them and they told me her work was incredible and they were so comfortable with the lashes and they looked so natural on their eyes!

I highly recommend Alisa for her makeup services!

Read my mind, gave me exactly the "natural" look I wanted!

I was so fortunate to have Alyssa do my bridal make-up this spring. I was looking for a "natural, demure look". I went to her because I was unhappy with my results after a different trial with a separate artist. Having so little experience with make-up (whenever I had my make-up done in the past it was always to someone else's taste, but too heavy for my liking), I wasn't even sure if I would even have better experience with Alysa, but boy was I wrong. She is such a good listener! It was almost like she was pyschic, and she completely understood what I meant by "natural". She didn't try to convince me to where a more dramatic look, but worked with me and gave me a gorgeous demure look that photographed so well! She even tried 3-4 shades of lipstick on me at the trial until we found one that I LOVED. I appreciated that so much. Overall I just found her to be such an easy person to talk to and it was great to chat and laugh with her while getting my MUAH done on the morning of my wedding. Highly recommend!

Absolutely stunning makeup for wedding!

Alisa did such a lovely job on myself and my bridesmaids! She applies makeup to bring out your best features, and knows exactly which shades to use to compliment your natural tones. I would 100% recommend Alisa. I've already asked her to do my makeup again for my reception!!
