Empire Faces was a vendor recommended by my Wedding Planner, Kolby, at Event Solutions. I'm very happy that I went with them!

I greatly enjoyed working with Lara and her team at Empire Faces. I brought examples of make up "looks" for both my trial and for the wedding day. The examples were a big help in communicating what I was going for (warm vs. cool colors, dark eyes, nude lips, etc.) and Lara did a great job on my make up. The stylist who did my hair worked magic. I gave her two or three images of different styles and she found a way to combine them for the perfect up-do.

On the wedding day, we had examples of hair styles and make up looks for each of the bridesmaids. For the examples we used pages cut out from various wedding and beauty magazines. The women in the examples had similar skin tones to each bridesmaid and similar hair length (as best as we could tell).

The people of Empire Faces are so extremely AMAZING that it's hard to even describe in words without sounding cheesy but I'll try my best because their GREATNESS deserves acknowledgement and my wedding planning experience taught me that these reviews are so VERY important! I have had the pleasure of using their hair and make-up services three times now, once for a wedding and then for my engagement photos and bridal portraits. Every single time I was so very pleased with everything and really had a blast chatting and laughing with the stylists! Lara, the owner, is fantastic at everything she does and she is as sweet as can be! She made booking and scheduling super easy and is always willing to answer any questions you have. She made the event days so calm and fun and is a genius at make-up artistry. All of their stylists and artists are so talented and professional and they have a way of leaving you feeling so special. They make the whole experience really fun and you just feel so comfortable and relaxed. Choosing beauty services for a special day is so important and I know it really helps to have reviews like these to steer you in the right direction so I'm writing this to give a sincere recommendation for Empire Faces. They are really the people to go to if you want to have a stress-free, pleasant experience and to be transformed into a glowing beauty. I will be using them again soon for my wedding reception and they will always be my top choice in the future!! Definitely the best hair and make-up services I’ve ever used and although I haven't had the pleasure of using their photography services, I do know they provide excellence in this area too [I'm pretty sure they do portraits for Health magazine...big deal :)]! Keep up the great work you guys and thank you for making me feel so special always :)

Laura and the ladies of Empire Faces made me look like a million bucks on my wedding day. They also did my Mom and sister's hair and makeup and they have never looked better. I can’t say enough about how professional, courteous and efficient the Empire Face crew was. I had a trial run with makeup and hair and Laura was very thorough with getting me the exact look I wanted. My Mom who is very picky loved her hair and makeup. I spoke with other venders and none where nt as responsive to my questions as Laura, that is why I decided to use Empire Faces. I would highly recommend them to any bride or individual wanting to look flawless for their event. The cost was worth every penny and more!

Myke and Lara were fantastic. Super relaxed and very professional. Empire Faces really made a very stressful time much easier for us. We planned most of the event by emails and phone calls because we live in Europe but it still went very easy. The CDs were also sent very promptly after the event to us in Germany and the link for our images was up in no time.

Because we live so far from our families our pictures will be extra special and important that is why we were very particular and intent on using Empire Faces. We did not want to leave anything to chance. I would highly recommend Empire Faces for any event.

Lara and the entire Empire Faces crew were absolutely amazing!!!!
They did the hair and make up for my entire wedding party, several members of my family, and me (the bride) for my wedding... They did a beautiful job... they listened to ideas and feed back from everyone and made sure everything was perfect and everyone was happy with how their hair and make up turned out.

The airbrush make up was flawless and actually lasted until the next day... My hair came out just the way I had envisioned it and it did not falter as we danced the night away... The Nova lashes turned out beautiful and I received compliments on them even after I returned to work 2 weeks later...

Not only did Empire Faces do a great job... But they also made the entire day of getting ready so much fun and stress free.

I would definitely refer anyone getting married to Empire Faces.

Hi Brides! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Empire Faces was the vendor my husband and I chose for all of our photography and my hair and make-up as well. We used Empire for our Engagement photos, my Bridal shoot which of course included my trial hair and make-up and they came from Houston to Wimberley TX to cover our wedding day. The thing I loved most about Empire faces was the fact that they were very excited to try "offbeat" stuff for our wedding. Our engagement photos were very funky and Myke used backgrounds ranging from an old warehouse, to a parking garage, the Metro rail, and a record store! When I did my bridal shoot Lara, Myke and the team were open to any ideas I had. We got to have fun and my photos were professional and "artsy" at the same time. Empire Faces came all the way out to the ranch where J.P. and I had our wedding to cover the entire day for us. They were very prompt, enthusiastic, and professional with all their work. They arrived at the Red Corral Ranch at noon on the wedding day and they were still there at 11 p.m. when my Groom and I left the reception! I received the wedding photos in my inbox edited and ready to be printed while we were still on our Honeymoon too. If you are looking for fun, different, and professionalism Empire Faces Make-Up and Portrait Studio is the vendor for you. Thanks Myke and Lara!

"I decided to get eyelash extensions for my wedding day, even though I already have long lashes. I can't believe how much of a difference it makes. Not to mention it saves me time in the mornings from having to curl my lashes then put mascara on, then curl again. As you can tell I still see Lara for my lashes even after my wedding day. I Love my Lashes!! The makeup and hair was awesome, and they were so easy to work with. I'd recommend Empire Faces to anyone who wants a great wedding experience!!"

Lara and her girls were FABULOUS! I wanted a 40's style, partial up-do and matching dramatic makeup and I had a trial done to make sure I liked it. It came out awesome, but the final version on my wedding day was PHENOMENAL! I have never felt more beautiful or glamorous in my entire life. Not only did they do a superb job, but Lara was extremely sweet and easy to work with. Very reasonably priced and worth every penny. I HIGHLY recommend!

I think empire faces is a good value compared to other wedding hair and makeup vendors. Lara is very nice and we enjoyed working with her. I was very happy with my hair and makeup; however, my bridesmaids had mixed feelings. My only complaint was that they arrived more than an hour late on the wedding day and finished past the time we agreed upon.
