I highly recommend Flawless Faces for hair and make-up. Hair: I had 13 bridesmaids plus mother of the groom and Michelle and Allyson made everyone happy and beautiful! They showed up on time and actually finished early. Hair and make-up were top priorities for me the day of my wedding and I was extremely happy and pleased with Flawless Faces. They also did hair and make-up for my step-mom and she looked gorgeous and was also very happy! Thank you!
When choosing hair and makeup for myself and wedding party I spoke to a number of makeup artists in the Orange County area. Carina at Flawless Faces was the only person from a company who promptly responded to all of my emails, calls, and questions. From the first point of contact, Carina showed such professionalism with her ability to respond. She and her team were able to accommodate my large bridal party, 10 bridesmaids, and a number of family members who also wanted to look flawless on the day of my wedding. At my trial appointment I was able to show pictures of my dress, bridesmaid dresses, blogs and ideas that I liked. Carina and Michelle both took time to listen to my ideas, but were also able to immediately understand what I was looking for based on my descriptions. My makeup at the trial looked fabulous and lasted for hours, long into the late hours of the night. My hair actually started to come undone a bit and when I mentioned this to Carina she immediately invited me back for another hair trial free of charge. She absolutely wanted me to feel confident in the work that she and her team would provide on the big day. The second hair trial went beautifully and Michelle even tried a few different options with me to make sure that I loved the way my hair would look. On a side note, Carina's shop is adorable with a number of accessories, gift ideas, and makeup options to purchase. I was able to find the accessory to use in my hair for the day of the wedding, it went absolutely perfect with my dress and overall look. Carina created a timeline for the entire group so that we would each be ready with plenty of time. On the day of the wedding, she and her team showed up perfectly on time to the hotel and spent so much time with each of us for hair and makeup. We were ready exactly at the time requested by the photographer and everyone looked absolutely stunning. I could not have been more happy with the quality of work provided. Our make up looked beautiful in the photos, with the dresses, and lasted the entire evening. Everyone's hair turned out beautifully and created such a perfect look to match the dresses and the romantic feel of the day. Carina and her team at Flawless Faces were so much fun to get ready with and they did an absolutely stunning job! I cannot wait to work with them again in the future for my makeup and hair needs!
I absolutely loved my makeup and hair on my wedding day, I felt beautiful. These ladies really know what they are doing and will truly make you look flawless. I cannot wait until I have somewhere special to go just so I can make an appointment to get my makeup and hair done with these ladies again!
Flawless Faces did an amazing job on the 12 different people who got hair and makeup services for my wedding. I would highly recommend them. My only qualm is that initially they were very difficult to contact. I had to call 5 separate times before anyone answered the phone.
We used Carina for makeup and Michele for hair for bride, 6 bridesmaids, and a flower girl. I went back and forth reading reviews about airbrush vs traditional makeup and I decided to go traditional, and it turned out just fine. It stayed on the whole night, from 7AM to midnight, no problemo. I found that I kept going back to Carina's website rather than others because it looked more natural. When I did my trial, I was not quite sold because it looked SO heavy compared to my regular mineral makeup, but my fiance saw me and told me how beautiful my makeup looked and the look on his face was enough to convince me. After having my makeup done for the engagement photos, and then the wedding, I was more used to this made up look on me. It was still shocking to see it on my friends that all wear little makeup. It does look good in the photos and my bridesmaids were all very happy with it. We were all very happy with our hair too. At first my bangs were pinned back too tight but Michele worked on loosening them up into more of a swoop until I was happy with them. My bridesmaids were all very happy with their hair, they all chose their own styles. Carina took pictures and posted them to her blog. I didn't like some of the pictures she posted, I would have liked her to pose us better, or to take several and just post the few best ones. Overall though, we were all happy with our hair and makeup and it was very convenient to have them come to our hotel room. They showed up on time and we ended up a little ahead of schedule by the time they did all of us. We were actually all done by the time the videographer showed up so we had to fake some of it for the video. :)
The Flawless Faces crew was an incredible team to work with. Carina, the owner, was responsive and timely in our communications. The makeup artist that my bridesmaids and I had was Jo, who added that natural glow and beauty to all of us. Michelle was fast yet thorough in her hair designs, and framed our looks beautifully. Both were down to earth, and very easy to work with. They both came early and were very professional. I'm grateful to them for making us all have that extra glow on our wedding day!
I contacted Flawless Faces for makeup services and it could not have been easier. Carina is very responsive and easy to work with. For my makeup services I selected Jo as I had heard many wonderful things about her. Jo was so great to work with. I had a large wedding party and she took her time and made each girl look absolutely stunning without looking "too made over." She is very easy going and has such a pleasant demeanor which is exactly the kind person you need around you on such a stressful day...especially with all the chaos we had running around our room the day of the wedding. Lots happening! I did a trial with her about a month before the wedding and brought a picture of my dress and ran through my idea of the kind of bridal make up I envisioned. With her expertise, she created and incredible look during the trial...a look that I didn't feel "too made over" or like I was wearing a mask. I plan to see her for any and all upcoming events when I need to get all dolled up. Thanks Jo!
I went into the studio the day of the wedding to have my hair and makeup done, but they will come to your location for hair and makeup. Jo & Susie worked on me and I looked beautiful. If I lived close by I would come here to have my hair and makeup done anytime I went to an event. I love the location of the studio and the decor in the studio as well. Definately would go back if I need my hair and makeup done in OC again!
Flawless faces is such an amazing deal for the spectacular work that all the women that work there do! I used Carina for my makeup for my engagement, boudoir, and my wedding day! Michelle did my hair on my wedding day! Carina is absolutely amazing! She is so sweet and her work is incredible! My bridesmaids and mom can't stop talking about how much they loved there makeup! Michelle was wonderful! I didn't have a picture of how i wanted my hair done i just described it to her and she did it spot on to what i imagined! She was so fast the day of the wedding and she got everyone done in record time!! All my girls loved there hair as well! I highly recommend flawless faces for any of your hair and makeup needs! I continue to use them for all my hair and makeup needs!!
My review is for makeup only by Jo from Flawless Faces. She did makeup for myself and my maid of honors and mother. She did a fabulous job and we received so many compliments. The Flawless Faces lounge is very cute and welcoming. I would go back for more services in the future or recommend them to my friends.
I had Carina do my engagement and wedding makeup for myself and my bridal party and I'm telling you she could not have pick a more spot-on name for her business. Flawless is exactly what she delivers! Everyone looked amazing the day of my wedding and it lasted through a whole night of happy tears and dancing! I even woke up the next morning still flawless! I would recommend Flawless Faces for any special event, especially your wedding day!
I had Carina from Flawless Faces do my bridal makeup and also hired her to do makeup for my bridesmaids. SHE IS AMAZING! I have never had anyone perfect all different girls' features the way she does. I heard about her from my 2 other friends that used her for their weddings and she really knows how to do natural yet stunning makeup. She also does the makeup for the Orange County Housewives show. She really knows her stuff and is a reasonable price for weddings. I would highly recommend using her. She is the best!
I used Flawless Faces after 2 recommendations from friends who used her. Carina the owner did my engagement and wedding makeup. I couldn't be happier. She did an AMAZING JOB. All of my bridesmaids looked gorgeous too! Would recommend her and her staff highly!
Jo and Michelle were fabulous! I went through multiple bridal hair and make-up artists and I am so happy that I chose the Flawless Faces crew to do me and my bridal party! Their prices are extremely reseasonable and the quality of their work is amazing! My guests (including the guys) all said they loved my look! I looked like me, just prettier! They both were on-time and we finised earlier than expected. They arrived at my house at 6:30 and we finished 2 bridesmaids, 1 mom, 3 flower girls, and myself by 10am. I will use Flawless Faces again for any formal event!!! Love you guys!
Carina is a wonderful makeup artist. She was great to work with and even finished early. Can't say enough good things about her. Everyone in the bridal party looked beautiful, especially the bride. I would recommend her for any event.
Loved the experience here! We came in to Costa Mesa from out of town from our wedding, and Carina was super accommodating and helpful when it came to getting me scheduled for a hair and makeup trial on a Saturday afternoon and coming back the next morning before our ceremony. Michelle did my hair and I was so pleased with the results. I had a few pictures showing the type of hairstyle I wanted, and she picked the one she thought would be best for my hair and it looked wonderful. My makeup was done by Cara and she was awesome as well. She did my makeup beautifully while still making me look natural. I loved the colors she picked for my eyes, cheeks, and lips too. Any feedback or adjustments I wanted to make she did flawlessly! I highly recommend Flawless Faces to anyone needing their makeup/hair done and will always come back here in the future if the need arises!
All the girls and my mom and me looked amazing! Not to mention they accommodated last minute 3 days before my wedding because the original ( not a good business ) crew I booked canceled on me. I am so happy I booked Flawless faces! amazing!
I have never looked that good in my life! Cara made me look and feel like a more beautiful version of myself. I was so confident walking down that aisle and I couldn't wait for my hubby-to-be to see me. I give Cara full credit for every compliment I received that day. LOVE HER!
