After an exhaustive search for wedding makeup artists, I just kept coming back to Grace Lin Make Up and Hair Studio. Grace was very responsive, and answered all my questions. What set her apart from the rest was her technical knowledge about makeup and what would best suit my face, taking into consideration the way I would look in pictures, and the way I looked in person. Setting up the trial appointment was very easy. I came with ideas both from the Grace Lin website and Pinterest, and we were able to come up with a great look.

The wedding day service was amazing. Hallie and Maggie did such a great job. They were prompt and finished in time. I liked that Grace Lin specialized in Asian makeup/coloring, but even my blonde, green-eyed MOH looked stunning!

Overall, this company is super easy to work with at reasonable rates. The customer service is friendly, responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend them to anyone who asks.

I just had my wedding in mid October and I am so satisfied with Grace and Vivi! When I was looking for my MUA I paid extra attention on business etiquette, responsiveness, and makeup techniques. Grace did not disappoint at all. She's always polite, fast in responding, and gave great advice on my makeup. I listened to her and chose to work with Vivi. That was the best decision ever made! Everyone loved my makeup and hair and I felt truly beautiful on the day.

Grace and her team might not be the cheapest MUA out there but it was great value and I wholeheartedly recommend her if you truly care about how you look on your big day!

Grace Lin sent us her finest makeup and hair artists for my wedding day this past weekend in Pacific Palisades.

All of my bridesmaids and mothers/aunties loved their looks. Katy and Vivi (Renee) did a fantastic job on my bridal hair and makeup as well! The updo for my Chinese tea ceremony (by Katy) was flawless and I received so many compliments!

Vivi (Renee) is a shining star; I had her for all-day service and she did my makeup, hair touch ups, and style changes throughout the day (on a hot September day this was a godsend). She was always patient and kind even though we were very stressed out due to a strict timeline throughout our jam packed festivities! She made me look and feel so beautiful and that made my wedding day even more special.

We were so lucky to have Vivi. Not only was she a highly talented makeup and hair artist, she was our go-to lady who jumped in to help whenever she could. She even helped my mom and sister put on/take off/bustle my wedding gown during major crunch times! We appreciated Vivi's artistry and positive attitude so much.

I definitely recommend Grace Lin and her team. Grace is excellent at replying to emails and communicated with me clearly and consistently throughout the entire wedding planning process. She is organized and professional, and she is extremely dedicated to her clients--always alert about her client's desires. You can tell she really cares about her brides and their happiness! Thanks Grace!

Halle did my make up and Maggie did my hair. They are also the artists who did Grace's make up and hair on her big day too! Both girls are great~!
They are both patient and have good sense of how to make a perfect bridal look. And during the trial session, they can help you try some different options to make sure things will be perfect. And also, suggestions were given to me how to highlight and how to get some hair extensions. Grace is also great by pointing me to which color will be great for the hair style i picked so that i can fully get prepped for the day! And Halle gave me the advice on some simple facial so that on the day the makeup can stay better. All are very helpful.
And on the day, both artists arrived early and made sure I look good for the wedding. Everything was as expected. I brought some hair deco and Maggie just helped fix them into my hair and the braids simply look better with all the right positions. Maggie changed the eye lashes from the trial, which feels more natural on the eye and I don't feel a thing after she applied those. Yet they look pretty with the eye lashes.
Also, Halle gave me a touch up kit and taught me how to use it, so need not to worry if I cry later. :D
And my bridesmaid's hair is also pretty and they know how to make sure it's pretty but not too much with bride's hair style in mind.
Again, so many thanks to Grace's team, and they helped my day perfect. And my guests all love my look, especially the hair with all the right highlights! So, girls, can't go wrong with Grace's team~!

Grace Lin and her makeup team are amazing!

Halle did my makeup for my wedding and she was great! Firstly, my makeup looked amazing and it stayed on ALL day. Halle exceeded my expectations with both her skills and her customer service. For example, right before my wedding my dad had a minor accident and Halle touched up his lip last minute although it was not included in my services.

Also, for my trial Halle was so nice- she tried out a few different looks on my eyes because she could tell I was a bit indecisive. I was so happy that she did because it made me feel more secure with my final look.

Before my bridal makeup trial I had Grace and Maggie for my engagement hair and makeup. Grace did an excellent job on my makeup- it looked so natural and better than I could have ever imagined! Maggie was great, I showed her a picture of what I wanted and she was able to replicate it perfectly! I was really surprised because I have thin hair. Also, Grace was so nice- she even upgraded me to an airbrush.

In sum, I am so impressed with their customer service and hair/makeup skills. Grace and her team are truly talented! I highly recommend going to Grace Lin.

Grace and her team were amazing! They helped me with my wedding last August 8 (i know this already over due). Grace is very responsive to our emails and to be honest, she is very organized in assigning her artists and getting all things done for us. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to have her as my artist, but May (my make up artist) and Maggie (hair stylist) were beyond amazing! they were the sweetest and very easy to work with. I showed them pictures of what I wanted for my make up and hair and they did it really well and much better than the photos and made sure it really looks good with me.

Since we had a big party, other artists assigned to my mom and mom-in law were benson and nora, who also did a good job. and for my bridesmaids May and Maggie also helped them and they were very happy with the result.

Also, they were on time with their schedule considering my wedding was all the way to OC and they all have to come at around 7am as we had a very big party.

Thank you Grace, May, Maggie, Benson and Nora. You guys are all great!:)

I have never worn professional makeup prior to my wedding day. I don't even wear it daily. So you can imagine how freaked out I was that I needed to find someone to do makeup on my wedding day. All I looked up was for someone that did Asian Makeup and was near the venue (in Pasadena). Grace Lin was the first person to appear. I arranged a consultation meeting and right from the start I knew she would take care of me. I brought a few pictures and she was able to determine what would be best with the shape of my face and offered suggestions that worked with what I had envisioned. I had a makeup trial with her senior artist, Vivi, and was very happy with the results. On the day of the wedding, Vivi came ahead of schedule and took care of me and my maid of honor. I'm self conscious when it comes to my looks, but Vivi did a fantastic job that I felt confident all day and everyone complimented my looks. My maid of honor checked on my makeup periodically and she didn't have to re-apply or change anything. I got a few pics from the wedding and my makeup looks awesome. Thank you Grace and Vivi!

I used the senior artists from the Grace Lin Hair & Makeup team on my wedding in April. Since my first contact with Grace in January, she has been very professional and replied my emails promptly and courteously - even during her honeymoon! I was very impressed by that. My trial session was back in February with Halle & Maggie. They were both very easy to talk to and open for ideas. I had them work on my hair & makeup as well as the mothers’. We were all very satisfied. Grace sent Vivi and Cece for my bridesmaids’ hair & makeup. Cece was very good at making them beautiful hair styles and reshaped the hair as soon as my bridesmaids’ found it getting loose. On the other hand, Vivi did a good job on my bridesmaids’ makeup, but some details were neglected possibly due to the rush. For instance, the eyelash kept dropping. I was also very grateful that Grace tried very hard to accommodate my last minute request and had successfully arranged Halle to work on my flower girls. Overall, I was very happy with the artists’ work. Would definitely recommend the team to others.

After getting quotes from several bridal make up artists, I found Grace Lin make up and hair studio with a decent portfolio and reasonable price. I decided to give it a try. I met Tery at my trial session, she’s very easy going and her make up skill is excellent. I knew I want a loose low side bun with natural make up for my beach wedding, and I gave her a few ideas and she got me right away. I pretty much booked her on the spot.

I got countless compliments on my wedding day for the hair and make up, so did my bridesmaids. They all look beautiful and I am so happy about choosing Tery as my makeup artist. I highly recommend Grace Lln make up and hair studio, especially Tery for any event.
