I can’t say enough about Isabella - she is FANTASTICK!!! It is clear from the start this is her passion! She is a true artist with amazing talent! Isabella brings a sense calmness with her as soon as she enters the room you just know everything will be fine. She is prompt, professional and an outstanding artist! Isabella went above and beyond for my family and exceeded all of our expectations. Our makeup was flawless and did not even need touching up through the entire night. Not only would I recommend Isabella Bastien to anyone I know, I would insist they use her for makeup services for any occasion.

Isabella was a complete joy to work with - I felt like I was chatting with my best girlfriend whenever we met and discussed my wedding day makeup. She is a complete professional, she knows all the tricks of the trade and made me and my bridal party look stunning. Her eye make-up especially was just stunning. I had really dark circles under my eyes on my wedding day and Isabella worked her magic to make me look completely well rested. I can't say enough good things about her, what a gem!

Isabella and her staff were fabulous. They took on last minute additions, were helpful with pricing, and my wife Heather, who rarely wears makeup, looks amazing.

She said Isabella was incredibly sweet and so good at what she does. Heather is actually going to contact Isabella for day to day makeup tips... she's that good.

Isabella is fantastic! If she is available on your wedding date, book her now! I'm not someone who wears makeup or feels comfortable with a lot of makeup and primping, but I loved Isabella. I did not do a trial, and Isabella did a fantastic job the day of. I looked like myself, just a dressed up, touched up version (which is what I wanted - she can do higher glamour as well, so I hear). She was calm and extremely professional. I expected to feel anxious having my makeup done, as I had for my sister's wedding - but I trusted her completely because you can tell immediately that she deserves your trust. To boot, Isabella is nice, and you'll enjoy having her as part of your wedding day. I can't emphasize enough what a great job she did and how wonderful a person she is. Truly fantastic.

Isabella is amazing! She did makeup for 6 of us and did a fantastic job. I recieved so many comments on how good the makeup looked. The makeup looked just as good at the end of the night as it did when she first applied it.

Isabella has a real love and passion for what she does, and it truly shows in her work. She is a pleaser to be around. Her radiant personality make her extremely easy to get along with. She goes out of her way to make you happy.

When Isabella pulled up our driveway and jumped out of her car for my bridal makeup pretrail, I knew I would like her! Within the first few minutes of my pretrail, I actually felt sad that we were just doing business and we weren't really best friends. You see, she made my mom, grandma and I fall in love with her with her beautiful smile, gentle spirit, and bubbly energy! We all loved her approach to makeup as well, which is very sheer/ natural. By sheer, I don't mean that my blemishes showed through, I mean she covered up my MANY acne blemishes expertly, yet it looked like I had naturally flawless skin. The COOOLEST thing I liked about Isabella's technique was that she hid my VERY oily skin!!! And gave lots of personalized everyday recommendations for makeup products too! On my wedding day, she showed up early, which was awesome!!! She is very responsive to the changes I desired and I was pleased with how I looked on that day and in the pictures!!! (I'm African American, lots of hyper pigmentation from acne, and I have oily skin. And it was VERY hot on my wedding day, but my makeupnstayed put. Plus I cried because people fainted in the ceremony, but my eye makeup stayed perfect!) Isabella was a blessing! Thank you Jesus for Isabella!

I cannot say enough good things about Isabella! She is a pleasure to work with and so good at her job. She was a true professional when it came to keeping contact, being on time, setting up, etc. My make up lasted allll day and then some! She did such a wonderful job, and I felt really beautiful on my wedding day. But more than that, she is such a lovely person, and so calm and reassuring. I underestimated how important that would be on the day-of. I loved working with her, and so did my whole wedding party. I strongly recommend her!!!!! I will use her again anytime I need my make up done!

Isabella did an AMAZING job for my wedding day. She took care of myself and my five bridesmaids. She is such a warm, caring and funny person and we loved every minute with her. My bridesmaids and I loved working with her because she makes you feel so great about yourself! What a wonderful support to have on my big day! She kept everyone calm and collected and was such a joy. The makeup she used felt so light, but I looked so fabulous! I will have her back for every special occasion I can think of!!! I would HIGHLY recommend her to any bride who wants great service, an amazing personality and a beautiful face! The best I have ever looked!! Thanks Bella. We love you!

There are not enough superlatives to describe Isabella as a person and as a artist. I was blessed to have been introduced to her by my wedding planner, Gretchen Wade.

I knew the moment I met Isabella that we would get along beautifully, her kind, gentle manner quickly put any worries I had to rest. I decided to have a pre-trial prior to the wedding; as I wasn't sure of the exact look I wanted for myself....was that ever a great decision.

Isabella understood my concern that I didn't want to look too made up, but rather a better, more radiant me. After our conversations, I not only felt confident and comfortable that she knew what I wanted; but after our sessions I felt beautiful. I couldn't believe that the make-up stayed fresh and intact all day.

Isabella is an amazing person, with an incredible gift. If you're looking for perfection, I wholeheartedly recommend her as a make-up artist.

Isabella did the makeup for me, my mom and my cousin at my brother's wedding. She was amazing!! everyone was commenting on how good my makeup looked that night, and it looked amazing in the pictures too. She took a little over an hour to do the makeup for the 3 of us, and it turned out really great! I would definitely use her again in the future for any other family weddings!

I absolutely LOVE Isabella! She is such a sweet, calming influence, which is so important on your wedding day! She really worked with my skin's needs to make me my most beautiful. I had a trial with her, after having a trial with another makeup artist (I was not happy with the results), and Isabella took my concerns about my skin (discolored from old acne scars) and really made me look flawless, without making me feel or look like I was wearing a mask of makeup. During my trial, she even suggested new products for me for my daily makeup, which I have since tried and loved. Her goal is really to make you look and feel flawless while not piling on a ton of makeup. After my trial, my now-husband looked at me and said "wow, I cannot wait to see you on our wedding day!" whereas his reaction after my trial with the first makeup artist I tried was "why don't you just do your makeup yourself for the wedding?". And on the actual day of, Isabella made me even more beautiful - I had so many compliments on how beautiful I looked. She also did the makeup for my mom, my sister, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law, and each woman has a different style and different coloring, and each looked the most gorgeous I have seen them look. Go with Isabella, and you will not regret it!

Wow! My makeup looked amazing! Isabella made me look like, ME! I have freckles which can be tricky, and she is an amazing job! My husband, who Hates makeup, absolutely loved it and keeps pestering me to do it the same way she did it. I wish she could do my makeup everyday!

She was friendly, easy to get in touch with and on time! SO WONDERFUL - she made the day even more perfect!

Isabella was by far my favorite vendor. She has done makeup for major motion pictures, music videos and commericals. She took her time at the pretrial, and even gave my mother and aunt make up tips for their daily make up use. She kept in touch with me on a constant basis (even after the wedding). All of my girls looked beautiful at the wedding and I loved my make up as well. On top of all of that, she is possibly the sweetest, kindest person I have ever met. Totally worth every penny

I love Isabella Bastien!!! She was always so attentive and would call just to see how I was and how the rest of my planning was going. She truely cares about people and it comes through in her beautiful smile. I was so incredibly thrilled by my makeup! It lasted all night and was exactly what I had imagined. Not only is Isabella one of the nicest people I've met, she is also very professional and was able to keep me focused and not freak out when I had about 2 minutes before I was to see my fiance. I hope to always consider her a friend.

Isabella was so fantastic! I had used her for other events, so I knew for my wedding day she was a must have! Every time I have worked with her she has provided excellent service and a great look! I wouldn't trust my makeup to anyone else. It was great to have her there at the ceremony site to do my make up, because it didn't give me the time to mess it up before the ceremony started! The makeup lasted all day long, though the ceremony, pictures, and reception;it looked just as great at the end of the night as it did when she had just finished doing it! Book with her, you wont regret it!

Isabella was such a joy to work with! She did the makeup for my wedding party and we were all stunning! Our makeup looked so natural and my guests couldn't stop complimenting us! Isabella was very professional, flexible, and patient as I kept changing the number of ladies to be included. She was so helpful during the pre-trial and made sure we were all comfortable with our makeup. She was very open to changes and suggestions as well as very informative as I don't normally wear much makeup! The day of the wedding she showed up early and really helped make the day fun! Thank you Isabella!

Isabella is a joy to work with. She truly wants you to look perfect. And she really wants you to be happy with how you look.

It was very helpful to have the pretrial to make sure that everything goes perfectly on wedding day. I would recommend that everyone do one!

Isabella is so passionate about what she does! And a pleasure to work with!

The pre-wedding make-up trial was perfect. Isabelle knew exactly what to do and what to bring on my wedding day. It was extra perfect that she came to my home - one less thing to stress about. Makeup lasted all day and the little purse of touch-ups was a nice touch.

I was blown away at Isabella's professionalism. I have never worked with a more kind-hearted, compassionate make-up artist in my life. I was so impressed with her talent. She approaches the art with such beauty and perfection, yet does it in such a fun way. I have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day!!
