I can only give 5 starts but if I could give Ivett’s team 10 stars I would. They were right on time, kept us all on track and made our morning so fun. Our hair and makeup stayed all night even in the July heat. Loved our wedding day so much! July 2022 - Bride
Ivett was absolutely incredible!!! She is so talented! My entire bridal party, my mom, my mother in law, and I all looked so stunning! The makeup was simple yet elegant! I also love how Ivett has two hairstylists, Sadira and Reem! They were amazing! I truly looked and felt like a princess on my wedding day. I can’t recommend Makeup by Ivett enough! April 2023 - Bride
So happy to have found Ivett and her team! Lulu did such an amazing job with my make-up and it was exactly what I wanted: natural, felt great, and lasted all night! Lilian also did an awesome job with my hair, she took her time and made sure it was exactly how I wanted it! I usually get headaches with an up-do because of all the tight bobby pins, but she did such an amazing job that I felt amazing all night and my hair looked great! They were all great about communication and were super punctual. I would definitely recommend and hire again! June 2021 - Bride
Ivett was absolutely amazing, she was patient and kind, from the trial to the wedding I could not have asked for a better make up artist. I shared photos with her of what I wanted and last minute changed to a something slightly different on the day of the wedding and she didn’t skip a beat. She is truly talented and will be the cherry on top for your special day😊 thank you Ivett! May 2021 - Bride
Makeup by Ivett was an excellent choice for bridal makeup and hair! Ivett’s expertise and professionalism are uncharted; and her delicate touch makes for the perfectly pampered wedding day preparation. I had a quite specific bridal look in mind and she nailed it one-hundred percent! Most bridal makeup is soft and ethereal, classic and timeless, so when I presented the idea of combining that look with glitter, she didn’t skip a beat. She was able to accommodate all five ladies with ample time and everyone looked (and felt) fabulous. I look forward to reconnecting in the future for other special occasions.

Let me cut to the chase - you will not find a better wedding day HMU experience than with Ivett and her team! I booked Ivett for both my engagement shoot (trial) and wedding day. On both occasions, Ivett was the definition of professionalism. She was timely with her responses, collaborative and communicative with our bridal looks, flexible with scheduling/travel, and an overall pleasure to work with. On the wedding day, Ivett and Sadira did HMU for myself, 7 bridesmaids, my mother, and even let me add on my grandmother for hair-do at the last minute! They worked efficiently without cutting corners and were a fun addition in our bridal suite. They made us look and feel beautiful. My bridal look lasted from noon until past 1 AM and made it through photos in the pouring rain, lots of dancing, and even our afterparty at the club. And in an odd twist of events, when one of our vendors completely bailed last minute, both women provided comforting and reassuring advice. Special shoutout to Sadira whose words of wisdom were priceless and dictated the entire rest of my wedding day (which was perfect). In summary, Makeup by Ivett was one of the best, most worthwhile decisions I made for my wedding day as a whole and I can't recommend this vendor enough. April 2023 - Bride
