"My makeup artist was CJ and I am so lucky and grateful to have booked him for my wedding. I booked him five months ago, after signing up for a makeup trial. He did the makeup for all six members of my party, including me. He also did my hair.
All of the women in my party loved their makeup, and it says a lot for their differing skin tones and hair colors. He made them look lovely, perhaps a done-up version of themselves without looking cakey. I received many thanks for their long-lasting makeup.
As the bride, I did want airbrush as recommended by CJ. Boy, was I thankful I listened: the wedding day was a bright, dry, 100-degree heat wave that wilted my flowers and made me sweat like I was running a marathon. Plus, we had booked a 50s classic car to pick us up, and the air conditioning pretty much died during the two-hour drive from ceremony to reception in Los Angeles traffic, so I was really relieved to find my makeup flawless and not melted away like it might have if I had done it myself. My hairdo did last until the last moments of the night, in which some dancing undid the pretty loops he secured behind my head, but I was really pleased with how long my hair and makeup lasted that night. So yes, CJ knows what he is doing and he will do a wonderful, timely job on you. Book the trial, make sure you book him in advance, and watch him transform you before your very eyes. It's money well spent, on a day you need to put your best face forward."

"I was very pleased with my makeup and hair for my engagement photo shoot and my wedding day. CJ is able to look at your face structure and bring out the best features. I honestly think he shed a few pounds off my face with his coutouring. I got the traditional makeup and it stayed on the whole day. My hair was pinned up with curls. I was worried that the structure would not hold, but it stayed up the whole day. I was able to change my hair pieces without my curls straightening out and without my hair falling apart.
On the wedding day, he was prompt and very patient with my bridesmaids and I. I gave him a picture of what I wanted and he was able to mimic that style close to 100%. CJ is artistic, professional and very caring. I really enjoyed working with him and I have recommended all my engaged friends to him. Thanks CJ for being awesome and making me pretty that day!"

"I used Hollywood Makeup Studio for my wedding a couple months ago and I was happy I did! Most of the reviews talk about CJ (I'm sure he does a great job), but Kelly came out to do my hair and makeup, as well as hair for three of my bridesmaids. I could not have been happier with the work she did. Kelly is so sweet and talented, I would recommend her to anyone. I did a hair trial with her first, and she worked really well with me to get exactly what I wanted. When it came to the big day, she arrived on time and did a great job on my bridesmaids. They all loved how they looked. She spent a lot of time on my hair and makeup and I was so happy with the way it turned out. I am glad I chose Hollywood Makeup Studio!"

"I agree with the other girls when they describe CJ as amazing, awesome, professional and talented. I can add that he is intuitive and charming. When I saw myself he had totally exceeded my expectations (I could have cried but didn't want to ruin the work he had just done!!) He did my trial makeup for my wedding with hair and airbrush makeup.
He did not skimp on the time he spent with me and was patient and thorough in achieving a look that is perfect for my big day!!!!! I went to a baby shower after having my makeup and hair done and everyone loved it. I got rave reviews...so needless to say he will be doing makeup and hair for me and my wedding party. Thank you CJ. You are topnotch and five stars all around."

"I was referred to CJ by my best friend who had her bridal makeup done by him and was very happy with his service. I started out by having a trial session with CJ and decided to have him to my hair, makeup, and my bridesmaids' makeup for my wedding in April. I was very satisfied with his service. Now looking at my wedding photos, I just love how the makeup was done. Thank you CJ! He is both very friendly and professional. He is a true artist with great aesthetic taste and took his work very seriously. He discussed with me on my stylistic preference and worked with me to achieve the look I desired. I recommend that you use CJ for your big day. He's reliable, punctual, easy to work with, very responsive and communicative, and overall a great makeup artist!"

"CJ was hired by me for my wedding in La Jolla. I live out of state so I hired him based on reputation and reviews. I was beyond pleased with the work that he did for me on my special day. My make up and hair was perfect. I am a picky person with my hair and he exceeded my expectations. My make up was flawless and he truly made me feel beyond beautiful. If you want your day to be perfect, CJ is the person to hire."
