Ana provided makeup services to myself and my bridesmaids for my wedding and it all turned out so beautifully! I changed my mind pretty significantly between the trial and day-of the event and Ana quickly accommodated my request and made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. (My only potential comment is that sometimes I'd have to send a couple emails before I would receive a response, but her skills far outweigh any delays.) Thanks to Ana for helping to make the day perfect!

Ana did AMAZING work for me, my mother and my 3 bridesmaids! She is such a friendly easing going person. Whenever I had any questions I knew I could always get a hold of her and if I didn't she always responded in a timly fashion. Her make up collection is HUGE and she really knows what she is doing! She remembered everything for our trial and came fully prepared and on time to the hotel the day of. She was always upbeat with a great attitude. Also as an African American bride and many different "shades" of girls in my bridal party it was very important to me that the artist I worked with knew what tones would compliant our skin. Ana nailed this hands down. We looked very natural just what I was looking for! She had no issue with traveling all the way to Gettysburg, PA where the venue was. Her price was so far and reasonable for all she provided and I would definitly recommend the airbrush for your whole party! It looks flawless and it lasted all night even through my tears. You couldn't even tell I cried! I didn't want to take it off when the night was over I was so in love with it! She even brought my mother who NEVER wears make up and is a bit of a Tom boy to tears when she saw herself that is a moment I will have forever :) Great job Ana!! Thank you again! Also I got a free MAC lipstick for touch ups

Ana was great! She made great make-up suggestions and was wonderful on the day of the wedding. Ana even flawlessly touched up a blemish for my mom as she waited for the hair stylist to finish with me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Ana did a fantastic job for my make-up for my wedding day, and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a professional look for any special occasion! I typically do not wear a lot of make-up, so when it came to my wedding, I wanted to make sure that I had a natural look that left me feeling like a better version of myself, and Ana delivered exactly that. During the make-up trial, Ana tried a variety of high end products that would photograph well, and took her time to apply full make-up so I knew exactly how things would turn out on my wedding day. I also picked up some general tips and advice from her about incorporating some of the products she used into my daily routine which was very helpful. On the wedding day, Ana traveled to my venue and was on time and on schedule. My make-up lasted throughout the day without any touch-ups needed. She does provide you with the lipstick she ends up using on you which was which much appreciated. Ana was very nice to work with, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for special event make-up!

Ana Merces did an amazing job providing make-up services for me and my 3 bridesmaids. Being Asian, we required someone who knew how to work with almond-shaped eyes and she definitely enhanced the look of them. During my trial, she applied a different style to each eye and was very helpful in determining what looked best. For the wedding, the make-up was stunning and her airbrushing made my skin look absolutely flawless (and it's definitely not). One of my bridesmaids even said that she looked better than she did on her own wedding day. Tons of guests, as well as my mom, who is in the make-up business, said she did an awesome job. If you're looking for a make-up artist for your wedding, I highly recommend Ana.

Ana is truly gifted as a makeup artist. As someone who typically does not wear makeup, I really appreciated her ability to provide me with a natural, understated bridal look. My bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of Ana's work. Ana is a calm and kind person and I was happy to have her be a part of such an important day. Book her immediately!

Ana is amazing! During the trial I brought in a picture of what I wanted to look like and she was able to duplicate the look beautifully. In addition, my trial was scheduled for 10 am and my airbrush makeup stayed fresh up until 11 pm when I washed it off. On the wedding day she did makeup for myself, 4 bridesmaids, and my mom and had us ready with time to spare. Everyone loved their makeup, and again, we all looked as fresh at when the reception ended as we did when started earlier that morning. I would recommend Ana to anyone. She has a very pleasant disposition and is truly great at what she does. I will surely have her do my makeup for future events.

Ana was amazing. There are no other words for it. She listens to her clients to determine their needs; listening is such a huge part for any client relationship and Ana goes the extra mile.

What I appreciated the most was how she talked about all the make-up she used before she applied it. She helped me understand why one product may be better than another. I really like that.

If I ever have another time where I need make up applied, I would not hesitate to contact Ana!

Ana was great--I'd really never had my makeup done professionally before, so it was a new experience. After she did my makeup the day of the wedding, I walked around the rest of the afternoon catching glimpses of myself in the mirror and going "Wow, I look great!"

The only minor issue--I didn't get a "See you tomorrow" confirmatory email from her right before the wedding, which made me a little anxious the day of (and i was already plenty anxious, so that would have been helpful), but she arrived on time and everything went smoothly. Absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs good makeup done for a reasonable cost.
