    Amazing and highly recommended

    Orly has done my makeup a few times when I was a bridesmaid in two separate weddings. She always does an amazing job and listens to your input - I always feel like myself but more glamorous when she does my face. She takes your feedback into account - if you want to look glam, you definitely will, and if you want to take it down a notch, she will do that too. I love her approach to lashes, as she will do individual clusters that look way more real and stay better compared to one strip, and your skin will always look glowing and flawless. She also always uses high quality products (as a Sephora junkie I can verify this haha).

    When it came to my wedding, Orly was one of the first vendors I booked because I knew I wanted her services that day. Unfortunately COVID forced me to postpone, and even though Orly was not personally available on my new date, she made sure I was covered with a lovely colleague whom she had trained personally, and I was totally comfortable with that. In all the time leading up to both wedding dates, Orly was always flexible and in touch and offered scheduling advice based on my needs and the needs of my bridal party. On the day of my ceremony, she ensured there were two highly trained artists present to make sure that my bridesmaids, mother, and myself would be looked after in plenty of time for the photographer's scheduled First Look.

    Personally I think I looked flawless that day, and so did my bridal party. Also, it was an extremely hot and humid day with some raindrops mixed in, and despite the outdoor ceremony and outdoor photos, all of our makeup looked fabulous and did not budge all day long.

    Orly and her colleagues Skye and Alex were an absolute dream to work with - polite, professional, and their work is on point. Highly recommend. My mom also could not stop gushing about everyone's makeup. Trust me, you will never regret working with Orly, she's a gem.

    Fabulous experience!

    I would highly recommend using Orly Khan makeup artist. From the first email I was already a happy customer. Her responsiveness to my questions was almost immediate which is unusual for most vendors.
    Her artist were friendly, punctual and did a fabulous job on my bridesmaids.

    Best makeup artist ever!

    Orly is a true professional. She really knows her trade and is easy to work with. She listens to what you have to say and adjusts the makeup accordingly - no ego, no arguments. She makes sure you are happy with the end product. Orly knows how to treat different types of skin and issues. She gave me a great pre-wedding skin routine. And on the day of wedding my makeup stayed on til the very end. That's over 15 hours of wear. I am so happy with Orly's services. I highly recommend her to everyone!

    Amazing in every way!

    Orly was perfectly professional and amazing to work with! She was extremely responsive to emails (like lightening fast) and made sure to answer all my questions! Even when I left the trial to the last minute and she was slammed with appointments she found a way to work me in which I was so grateful for! Right off the bat I could tell that Orly was very knowledgeable in her field and knew exactly what I wanted with little explanation from me. When I expressed concern about getting certain parts of my make up done (like my eyebrows) she did not judge and offered to leave them to see what I thought and then go from there. Orly is truly an expert in her field and made me feel beautiful!! I was wearing the make up, it was not wearing me! Her prices are very reasonable and I felt good paying what I did for her service because she is worth every dollar! Her prices come with false lashes, which I usually do not wear due to them being very obviously false, but Orly used singles and placed them in a way where I felt comfortable, natural and enhanced but not covered. I felt glam and natural at the same time and my make up stayed ALL night....even though I bawled like a baby the whole day (and I'm talking tears streaming down my face bawled)! There is a picture of me at the end of the night and my make up looked just as beautiful and fresh as the morning, through all the sweat, kisses and tears! One thing I really appreciated about Orly was her coolness (yes that is a word now). When I was in chair getting my make up done (the last thing before I got dressed), she could tell I was getting super nervous and instead of just ignoring that she told me to relax, be pampered and that everything would be ok. It wasn't that she gave me this big pep talk that fixed everything, but she was so cool herself and was very soft and gentle and it made everything ok! Orly also gave me some tips on how to reduce my face getting so oily (the advice of which is usually "go get this product....." and "try this expensive trick....") and it actually worked and it was nothing to do with products or expensive tricks! Just a testament on how Orly really listened to what I needed and helped me achieve that! I would definitely recommend Orly 1000x over and will be looking for her services in the future.....if even just for fun! If you have multiple people in your party and are looking for a more natural look, just make sure you ask to be done up by Orly specifically as she is clearly the expert (if your party is bigger she brings an assistant (who was also great!l) but Orly is the best)! Thank you so much Orly again, it was the best decision picking you to make me and my bridal party look amazing all night long!!

    Amazing & Experienced Make-up Artist

    Orly and her team were amazing to work with. From the initial planning, to the trial, and the day of, she was wonderful. Orly listened to my request to look wedding-ready, but also look like myself, and made me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. She was also very prompt on the day of the wedding, and efficiently got me and my ladies looking great! I definitely would recommend her to anyone still looking for a makeup artist.

    Incredible

    Orly has been a pleasure to work with. I booked her a year and a half in advance of my wedding. We did my trial for my bridal shower. Morning of the wedding she came to my house and had everything you could possibly need or want. She is professional, courteous and a great person to work with. Highly, highly recommend!!

    Orly is seriously theee BEST makeup artist I have ever worked with. I always get my make up done for various events and celebrations and I have never known anyone to blend eyes so perfectly, and achieve a flawless look without being too "cakey." I will continue to use Orly whenever I have somewhere big to go, and I suggest you do the same! I promise you won't be disappointed.

    You were so fun to work with!!! Hope I can do it again soon!! It was a pleasure applying your makeup and makeup for your bridal party/family.

    Fantastic bridal makeup!

    I wanted a natural, glowing look for myself and my bridal party and Orly did an incredible job delivering on that. She was super professional, arrived on time, and we all felt so beautiful for all the photos and the whole day and evening. Can't recommend her enough, she's very talented and will ensure you get exactly the look you want to achieve! Thank you Orly!

    Orly is amazing! She was super quick to answer emails, and extremely accommodating with any requests and questions. Orly did my makeup as well as 3 moms, and we all wound up with different makeup styles that were totally us. The venue didn't have AC, and it was a hot, muggy night- the makeup held up the entire night!

    I can't wait to see the professional pictures come back because I couldn't have felt prettier!

    Thank you Orly, all 4 of us loved our makeup! We were all very sad to remove it at the end of the night!

    Both Orly and her assistant did amazing work for us. They made everyone look and feel great!

    What I loved and appreciated most that is hard to find was that they were calm but worked fast. Honestly, their calm approach really kept all the ladies in line.

    I have worked with a lot of makeup artist and have had both good ones and not so good ones. Makeup is really an art and you need to love it to do it well.

    I am very happy that I chose Orly, she was amazing!

    In the future, I would only book her and recommend her :)

    Thank you!
