“Sarah’s work can be summed up in one word: Amazing. She takes time to understand your skin type and your vision for your wedding day makeup. She artfully applies makeup to define your best facial features in a natural way. She used air brush foundation which made my skin look flawless – it even covered up my blemishes. Sarah is professional, flexible, and calming when wedding jitters are abound. I loved working with her, I wish I could have her do my makeup every day!”

“Wearing makeup is foreign to me but I agreed to wear it for the sake of my wedding pictures (and my bride-to-be). Sarah eased me through my hesitation and explained every step before she applied the product. I appreciated her thouroughness and sensitivity to my no-makeup stance. My makeup was minimal as requested, but it made a huge difference in the pictures. I would highly recommend Sarah!”
Anastasia Devana, metal band “Ashentide”
“Sarah was the makeup artist for all our band photo shoots and a couple of our shows. She did makeup for all six band members all by herself and did a fantastic job at it! Since we are a metal band, we wanted something more creative, and Sarah was able to create a unique look for each band member, while working with our requests and preferences and making everyone feel comfortable. She also did a great job scheduling everything so we could all get done and ready for the shoot in time. She even came with us on location, in case any touch-ups were needed, and made sure everyone looked great! I definitely recommend Sarah for all your makeup needs – she is a very talented, experienced and professional artist!”
Yasmin, photographer, Shalimar Studios
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sarah on 2 photo shoots with the band Ashentide. Each shoot consisted of makeup for 6 band members and Sarah did an excellent job catering each of their makeup application to their specific facial structure. She was prompt and professional, willing to take suggestions but also knowledgable in her craft. Sarah is very easy to work with and has a positive and fun attitude which are important qualities to have when working on set and I would definitely recommend her to other photographers as well as hire her for future commercial shoots.”

“Sarah made me beautiful on my wedding day! During the make-up trial, she listened to my ideas, made color suggestions, and even sent me home with a box of special tea to keep my skin looking its best. When the big day arrived, she transformed me into the glamorous, yet still very natural, classic beauty bride I had always envisioned. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a perfect flawless look for a special occasion.”
Diana C. (skincare & beauty consultation)
“My beauty consultation session with Sarah was by far the best I’ve experienced. Rather than force fitting a generic routine and expensive products on me, Sarah really took the time to first understand where I was starting from.
She asked me many questions that comprehensively covered cleansing, makeup, professional services, daytime, nighttime, daily, monthly, etc. She even went through every item in my makeup and toiletries bag. From there she was able to gauge how much time I spent on my beauty regimen and what my budget was. She explained which products I should continue to use, which ones I should start to use and which were not worth the premium I was paying.
I mentioned there were a couple of makeup techniques that I had been trying, but wasn’t quite adept at. She sat down with me to show me as well has have me do them in front of her until I was comfortable and could see the difference in the outcome.
I came away with tailored recommendations and new skills and techniques that I could afford and do on my own. It is clear that Sarah has extensive experience, a genuine passion for her work and to help others and does meticulous research before suggesting anything.”
Diana L. (skincare & beauty consultation)
“I met with Sarah for a skin care and makeup consultation and was absolutely delighted with the results! I was battling issues with uneven pigmentation and fine lines as well as with skin sensitivity – so Sarah took the time to go over various skin care products with me and showed me how to use them correctly for my needs. She then did a complete makeover on me – showing me different techniques and color pallets that work for my skin tone. I was super excited with the results and have been getting compliments on my new look. She did a wonderful job addressing all of my concerns and I can’t wait to go back to her in the future! I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for someone knowledgable about skin and beauty.”
