I was so lucky to have come across Aimee Lam! Her personality is very inviting-definitely one of the nicest people I've met. During the makeup run, she will ensure that you are comfortable and completely satisfied with the results. Aimee is attentive to details and make every effort to work with YOUR style. Her makeup and hair techniques are amazing. She is great with all types of faces. Her transforming styles has helped me win pageant titles..Aimee is indeed a talented artist. She also has a creative side in photography. Aimee took some photos for me and they came out beautiful. You cannot go wrong with makeup+hair+photography...Aimee can do all three! :)

Professional, intuitative, trust worthy and a very skilled artist!

I am based in Australia and was getting married on Phu Quoc Island off the coast of Vietnam. The one thing I wanted for my very casual wedding was to have my hair and make-up done professionally. Like all girls I wanted to look and feel special on my wedding day,

I had done numerous internet searches and was getting really concerned, traditionally Vietnamese wedding make-up is very heavy and that doesn't suit my fair European inherited skin.

I stumbled across Aimee on her website, and thank goodness I did!

We obviously couldn't have a trial as I was in Australia, Aimee was in America and we wouldn't meet until Phu Quoc Island, and of course I wondered if transferring $$ to an unknown person was wise...would she even turn up? I definietly just had to hope it would all turn out OK.

I should not have worried. Not only did Aimee turn up, but she did an amazing job, nailing what was the best look for me and controlling my crazy frizzy hair in extremely humid conditions. She also managed to make myself and my twin sister look different (a big call) and put my mother at ease who is not one to normally wear makeup let alone have anyone make her up.

Aimee was an absolute delight. Not only did she style my hair and makeup, but she also went above and beyond and helped us find a photographer as we were having difficulties organsiing this from Australia and knowing who to trust.

Our wedding day, our photos and the many compliments I got wouldn't have been a reality without her!

Of all the vendors I had for my wedding, Aimee Lam is one of the best that I had no regret hiring. She arrived on time on the day off and did makeup for me and my mother. She did an amazing job with both despite the limited time constraint. My makeup lasted all day and the hair design looks great with both my ao dai and bridal gown. Thanks Aimee!

Aimee did a wonderful job for my hairdo & makeup for my recent wedding photo shoot on 5/3/2012 at Monterey Peninsula!

Two days before we meeting each other for the first time on 5/3, Aimee asked me to send her a photo of myself (with/without makeup), the desired hairstyle and makeup, as well as the outfits that I'm planning to wear on the day of photo shoot.

On the day of coverage, I wore a purple strapless dress to her studio which located in Milpitas. She applied the foundation using the airbrush technique which had created a truly flawless look. I was amazed when I saw myself in the mirror!

Based on my previous experiences with other makeup artists, I told Aimee to put more blush on the cheeks because it will fade away quickly throughout the day. I'm so glad that Aimee listened to my need :)

Aimee is also very talented in photography. She takes her own photo for her models. Hence, she knows what makeup will suit you and look good in the pictures!

I had a great and satisfied experience with Aimee for her professionalism and passion towards what she is doing. I would definitely recommend Aimee to my friends who are going to have their civil ceremony this year :D

Aimee is a great person to work with. She's soft-spoken, but she offers great ideas and recommendations for hair and makeup. Her recommendations start before the trial. She teaches you how to take care of your skin and she offers recommendations on what makeup to use regularly too. She is very familiar with Asian skin and does a great job, which was what I was looking for. She's also very responsive towards the style I wanted. At first I was shy with all the colors and Aimee respected that, but when I said I wanted some more color so I didn't look so washed out, Aimee added more color to my look without making me look "over done." It was just the right amount. I love that Aimee can judge what was "just right" for me!
She works with an assistant, but Aimee does all the makeup and my hair. Her assistant helped her with the bridesmaids' hair only. She was fairly efficient. She took ~4hours to complete our looks (4 girls total). She's so easy going and easy to get along with! The results are really worth it!

Aimee Lam is fantastic at what she does! I asked her to do my hair and makeup absolutely loved it. The hair was stunning and my makeup was flawless! It was more than I could have asked for, and I will definitely ask Aimee to do my hair and makeup again for any other formal event. Ladies, you will not be disappointed, she is absolutely amazing!

Aimee was simply AWESOME!!! She was professional, attentive, and I really admired her passion for her work. She was very personable and took time to know your needs/ personalities were accounted for (of course, she will be honest with you). I received tons of compliments on my makeup and hair throughout the whole wedding and was glad that I had selected to work with Aimee. Best of all, my makup lasted throughout the day/night and I didn't need any touch up. It was my pleasure to work with you, Aimee!

Aimee is amazing!!! She is talented, professional and is the nicest person. I had the pleasure of having my makeup and hair done for my wedding - along with my mother and my matron of honor.

I felt sooo beautiful on my wedding day - and I received so many compliments! My makeup looked natural, and showed up great on the pictures. My hair looked great too - and it stayed perfect all day! I didn't even have to adjust 1 bobby pin... and I have a lot of hair. During the trial, she took her time to figure out what would work best for me. I typically do not wear much make up and I was worried that it would feel heavy, so she suggested air brushing and it was great - didn't even feel like i had any makeup on!!! She took some pictures of me after the makeover and she sent them to me the next day.

Aimee always responds to emails promptly and she follows up on everything. For someone who is a borderline type A personality like myself, it was just a relief to find someone who is so reliable. I also had a lot of unexpected last minute changes (adding people, requesting earlier times, etc...) which added a lot more pressure on her - but she just told me not to worry and figured everything out for me. She arrived early on the actual wedding day and she came very prepared - she took a lot of notes during my trial and brought the notes and the picture from the trial with her.

On top of all this, she is an awesome person - as soon as I met her, I felt really comfortable with her. I wasn't nervous at all on the wedding day because she was so calm. Thank you so much Aimee!!!

aimee lam is a diamond in the rough in the bay area. the pictures on her website don't do her work justice. aimee is extremely talented and really understands the face. she has a very acute sense of detail and is keen on doing what works for your face and features to create the most flattering look for you, unlike many trials i had been to in which the artist was just applying makeup to my face without really considering my face shape, cheekbones, the distance of my eyes etc., and just applying colors. after a session with her, you realize that aimee has studied make-up artistry extensively and really knows what she's doing. aimee is also extremely accommodating and very eager to listen to you and i felt so comfortable with her, which is exactly what you want on your wedding day - someone you can entrust with one of the most important days of your life.

i would say that i am very particular and have very high standards when it comes to make-up. my makeup ended up being perfect. she was able to create a look that was soft and natural in person, but still photographed well. LOVED HER!

simply perfect. i always knew that aimee is amazing. lets just say.... at the end of day at 2am, my bridesmaids and i still look AWAKE. while we were saying to each other "i'm so freaking tired", i would look at their face and think "wow, great makeup. not a bit smudged or worn-looking".

she did my hair and i was told that my hair looks "done", yet not rigid - more natural-looking. she's great.

i know you may be thinking.... oh dear, she's a little on the expensive side and i can probably find cheaper.

but you know what? your photographer's photoshop can't make your eyes so magical and your blush look so well blended. he/she might be able to get out the eyeliner smudges, but its unlikely that they'll add perfect eyeliner to each photo!!!! your lumpy curls or flat hair cannot be fixed by a photographer.

and by the way, my hair's curls LASTED the whole day, even at 2am the same day. she was done at 11am and our wedding day ended at 2am. that's 14 hours of perfect curls.

splurge on your hair and makeup. your photos will remind you that the money is well spent.
