Working with Monika, she helped to create the exact look I was hoping to have for my wedding day. She listened to what I thought and took that into account to create the final look. I loved that she came to us in the morning and helped to pump up my girls and I for the day ahead.

With the exception of the lovely makeup artist who worked with us (lovely, amazing job, flexible for last minute add-ons like airbrushing tan lines), the rest of the experience with Makeup Worx was apalling.The hairstylist, Rob, was very difficult to work with. Each bridesmaid showed him a picture & each was told he "doesn't copy" & likes to be "organic" (meaning messily scrunching hair into roughly the same shape as the picture). One girl, after having her hair done, went downstairs & was asked by another girl when she was going to get her hair done - it was so messy she didn't even realize it was already done! I did actually get somewhat of the hairstyle I asked for after being firm with him that I wouldn't let him do whatever he wanted & having him tell me I was "going to make him work for [his] money". After telling me he didn't know if my hair would stay put, I asked if I could have a few bobby pins to take with me. He told me he had none to give, despite me being the last girl done & seeing the pile of bobby pins he had. Even worse, the hairspray he used on me actually ate the coating on my glasses as it fell on them while holding them in my hand. It was so bad I was left with foggy vision for the wedding & my lenses needed to be replaced. When I contacted Makeup Worx to let them know and that I would like to be reimbursed for my glasses, it only got worse. I was told that they would take no responsibility for the damage because they called the hair product company who told them it was impossible. The woman became very nasty when I shared my feedback about the hairstylist, essentially calling me a liar. Makeup Worx clearly lied about their "investigation" into the matter, as my own follow up with the hair product company assured me the spray definitely could damage my glasses and the hair product company reimbursed me for my glasses, despite the fact it was the hairstylist's fault for not taking precautions. I would not recommend this company to anyone!

Makeup Worx did an excellent job with mine and my bridal party’s looks! Everyone looked so beautiful. The makeup felt very light and lasted all day and night! We had Monika and Kate for the big day and then I had Missy for a post wedding shoot. All of the girls were very professional, skilled and efficient. They looked at examples of what we liked and used their own judgment to make it work for each girl’s features.

Overall I would not go with this company again. When I would ask questions, I wouldn't get a response back for days. Day of arrival was left for last minute, came super early and felt like they were rushing. Didn't feel like they were accommodating at all and added to my stress. Makeup in the end looked good and lasted.

Monika did an amazing job on mine and my bridesmaids' make up. Monika is very skilled at what she does and I can't believe the ease with which she does it. She was very accommodating and flexible. Every time I emailed her I would get a response the same day, if not within hours. Monika was also helpful in finding me a hairstylist who could take my party on my wedding day.

The airbrushing really did last the ENTIRE day. My makeup was done at 9am as we were doing a first look and when I returned to my hotel room after the reception at nearly 2am it hardly looked any different! The only need I had to reapply was for the lip gloss.

If I ever have a need for professional make up again it is definitely Monika I will be returning to!

Monika and her team are worth every single penny! They know their stuff, invest in quality products and ongoing education classes. Their work looks amazing in person, and on camera.
Monika was such a joy to have around on such an important day and I totally trusted in her experience and expertise to make us look and feel like a million bucks. My mom and mother-in-law (who are not big makeup wearers) loved their looks as well.
These girls are TRUE PROS, making application super simple as they direct you wear to look, close your eyes, blink, etc. Makes for the easiest false lash application I have ever had.

Monika was an absolute dream to work with! She is a very friendly woman who definitely knows what she's doing in the makeup department! Me and my wedding party all opted for the airbrushing makeup, and it lasted ALLLLL night, through the tears, and sweaty dancing!!!

Monika listened to what each girl wanted, and also gave a few helpful suggestions that we otherwise wouldn't have thought of, but that made our 'look' that much better.

I would definitely recommend Monika to do your makeup for your wedding (or any special occasion)

I am extremely selective when it comes to makeup application. I like looking flawless without having a pile of makeup on my face because I normally don't wear any. But on my wedding day I wanted to look like a princess...and Monika of Makeup Worx made that happen.

From our first meeting at the bridal trial, I explained what I wanted and she was patient, thoughtful and took the time to make sure I was comfortable with everything. The day of the wedding she arrived very early and was extremely professional. She also did makeup for my mother and bridesmaids.

I would recommend Monika from Makeup Worx for any occassion...particularly your wedding!

Monika of Makeup Worx was one of the essential services for all my makeup needs. She worked with me on my engagement pictures, did a great trial before the wedding and of course, my wedding day makeup. She was a ray of sunshine on a day when I was alittle nervous and wanted everything perfect. Monika listened well, and understood the look I was going for, and executed it perfectly. Our photographer even commented on how professional my makeup was and how great it looked for the pictures. I looked glamorous and flawless - that made me feel amazing.

To this day, I call on Monika at Makeup worx for other special occaisions and I recommend her with 100% approval to my friends, colleagues and family. She is innovative and provides quality service. You won't go wrong with booking your special day makeup with Makeup Worx.
