MaQeup- makeup by Christina "Quis" Chen [http://www.makeupbyQ.com] caters to all makeup needs including weddings, special events, commercial to runway and film and is currently an artist for Chanel and Bloom Bridal Boutique in the Bay Area.

INFO FOR BEAUTY & HEALTH

What beauty services do you offer?
Body Art, Facial, Hair, Hair Removal, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
Yes
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
Yes, I use HD quality TEMPTU products which provide a light weight, water resistant coverage that lasts for brides who prefer this type of foundation. The silicon based line leaves the skin with a dewy finish or it can be matted with loose powder. 
 
 Also, lashes are inclusive in my rate. I use a variety of lashes including hand crafted strip lashes with stem for a more glamorous touch, or ones with an invisible stem for an extremely natural enhancing look. Individual lashes are also available upon request, however, I must say the results of strip lashes look much better in photos than individual lashes. 
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
Travel fees are charged accordingly if the bride is located more than 60 miles (round trip) from Santa Clara. The fees are generally $50/30 miles outside of this range or $0.55/mile (whichever is less). If the ceremony is more than 100 miles from Santa Clara, overnight lodging must be provided. Parking fees must also be covered by the client.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
Depending on the time allowed for the trial, I will be able to service as many clients as possible. However, I have other artists/assistants whom I am able to contact if there are too many services for the time given.
What is your cancellation policy?
If the bride wishes to have a guaranteed booking, there is a 50% deposit which is non-refundable.

Christina is fantastic and super sweet. She asks for photos of the hair and make up you like, and I really appreciate her being prepared by asking for that in advance. I wanted to have really natural makeup and she was able to do that. I received a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup the day of my wedding.

Christina was very responsive with email and was very friendly on the phone when I asked about her services. She did my trial, which lasted 3-4 hours, but the time flew by so quickly because she's so nice and easy to talk to. I booked her immediately for my wedding, even though it was a year in advance!

Christina then helped me with my engagement shoot hair and make-up, which was rescheduled 2 times! She was super flexible with the scheduling and even took time to recommend me to some of her friends when she thought she wasn't going to be available.

On our wedding day, she brought her assistant and they did hair and make-up for seven people in four hours! I was so impressed that my hair and make-up lasted the entire hot summer day with minimal touch-up. Plus, I felt I still looked like me, but with her magical enhancements.

I wish Christina could follow me around and do my hair and make-up for me everyday! Since she obviously wouldn't be thrilled if I asked her to do that, I would definitely go back to Christina for any styling needs in the future. Not only is she excellent at what she does, she is patient, kind, and one of the nicest people I met during the wedding process.
