Grace is nice and responsible. I had a trial with Halle but not 100% satisfied. They arranged another trial for me.

I used Grace Lin Professional Make up Team for my wedding on 8.19.12 and Grace turned me into a stunning princess I got so many compliments on my make up and hair. All the guests wanted her contact info. The team is very prompt, kind, and has so much talent.

Grace was able to deal with me when I was being indecisive and guided me throughout the whole process and was very flexible with me.

I HIGHLY recommend Grace and her team to anyone in the LA/OC area who's looking for a professional and the most AMAZING team for your special day.

I booked Grace Lin and her team at the last minute after a failed makeup trial with another reputable makeup company based in Orange County. I had always thought that her style was what would be ideal for me and what I would wish to achieve for my wedding but she was based 30 miles away from Newport so I didn't do my trial with her and I totally regret it. Because I was confident after looking through all the photos from Yelp and her portfolio that she was the makeup and stylist for me, I booked her for my wedding without a trial and I was completely pleased with the result! Grace knew the look that matched my personality, features, and dress the best. My hair and makeup was absolutely gorgeous and natural. I felt like very comfortable and beautiful all day and all night. Even through the teary moments, the makeup lasted all day. I didn't even use the touch up kit she gave me except to reapply lipstick once!

Jane and Olivia are also master artists. My moms and bridesmaids all looked beautiful and happy with their looks.

Grace and her team are very good with enhancing our features. My last makeup artist told me she couldn't even out my eyes because one eyelid was not as double eyelid as the other. Grace used eyelid tape on that eye and balanced out my look without a hitch. She also trimmed my eyebrows to achieve a better look.

I highly recommend her and her team!!! Most importantly, she made me and my family beautiful and very very happy.

Grace was recommended to me by the wife of a friend, and while I was hesitant at first with her originally based in LA, having Grace and her team do hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids and the mothers for our wedding in August 2016 at Gardener Ranch (Carmel Valley, CA) was an AWESOME decision and experience.

First off, leading up to the wedding day, Grace was very responsive (from after the initial consultation through booking, the trial & the day-of) and accommodating in developing a timeline that allowed me to squeeze in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony AND meet my coordinator's request to be done by noon. And the timeline was very realistic to boot!! There was very little deviation or delay off of Grace’s timeline, which I (as someone who cares a crazy amount about punctuality) appreciated so much. Now about the actual hair and makeup. I already knew Grace was going to do a wonderful job with my hair and makeup -- and if anything she did an even better job on the wedding day than the trial! It was perfect and matched the romantic, rustic, and natural look I was going for. The team (Evie and Vivian) that Grace brought to do bridesmaids makeup and hair and mothers makeup also did an outstanding job. I've definitely been at weddings where the bridesmaids clearly got less attention, but both Evie and Vivian were pros at what they did and made all of the wedding party gals look so beautiful. It's worth mentioning that each of my bridesmaids specified their own unique hairstyles and each style was done perfectly.

Overall, Grace and her team are extremely professional and talented at what they do. I cannot say enough positive things about Grace and have already recommended her to a number of my friends that are getting married in the Bay Area!!

I booked Grace for my wedding day makeup & hair, and also for my 4 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. Everyone looked beautiful. Grace worked on just me (bride) for the wedding while Kendall and Jean worked on the 6 other women. My hair & makeup came out FLAWLESS and I had never felt more beautiful in my life. I got so many compliments on my look and I've already referred Grace to a friend (it's only been 2 weeks since my wedding).

I also had Grace do my trial 2 months before the wedding and she created the perfect look for me. She recommended that I get highlights (I'm Taiwanese with all black hair) which I did, and that was the best decision. The highlights, though not usually noticeable with my hair down, really showed the texture in my hair and made all the difference on the wedding day. Grace knows how to capture "my look" - as in, I wanted to be elegant and beautiful but not too fobby or too sexy. But at the same time, if that's the look you're going for, she can create those for you too.

Grace also came back to my wedding reception that night to do my 2nd look. I changed into a second dress and she touched up my makeup and did a different hairstyle within 30 minutes. That was amazing! I'm so glad I hired Grace for the most important day of my life and I would recommend her to anyone needing hair & makeup service!

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.
