After gaining a degree in Illustration from USF & Academy of Art, Maria Lee pursued a career in Graphic Design. After 7 years, working behind a computer became tiresome, so Maria decided to go for her dream of becoming a make-up artist.

With her background in art, she had no problem landing a job with the famous, high-end make-up artist line, Laura Mercier. After working with the line, she started freelancing for over a dozen make-up lines (including Armani, Dior, YSL, MAC, NARS, and Shu Uemura) making her a highly respected and sought-after make-up artist. Soon, she started working with brides and photographers. Within the last 5 years, she learned how to style hair and create Special Effects.

Being able to do Makeup, Hair, and Effects, Maria Lee has developed an impressive portfolio as well as a lengthy list of happy clients. Whether you need to get ready for your big day or any special occasion, Maria Lee will help you get the exact look you desire. Read less

All I can say is that I have never felt and looked better than after having Maria do my hair and makeup for my wedding day. Absolutely pleased with her professionalism and her work. I would use her services again in the future.

I wanted to formally thank you for your services, your expertise, your
patience and your hard work. My wedding was amazing thanks to you,
and everybody told me how beautiful and natural I looked. There were
so many comments about how my natural features were brought to life
through your work, and that I was “glowing” … I loved what you did in
the three – day – wedding events, specially the last day (the photo
shoot) … My bridesmaids looked absolutely beautiful, some of my
friends even looked more beautiful than in their own wedding days
(said by them!! , which is a lot to say!!!)….. but above all, my Mom
and my Mother-in-law .. they were so gorgeous … Your Assistant Artists
(Misty and Korina) also made a wonderful job, and Lisa was super
helpful, professional and sweet. Wrapping up everything, I think it
was perfect …. Congratulations and the best of luck with future brides.

Maria did my makeup and hair for my wedding, as well as my mom's and two sister's.
I get my makeup done from time to time, and Maria is the best makeup artist I have ever had. She is meticulous and has great aesthetic sense. I will definitely use her again for special occasions. I have long hair which I wanted to wear down and curled for the wedding. Maria worked with me to get the look I wanted -- doing a trial with her really helped with this.

Maria is also just a really nice person. She spent the entire morning before my wedding with me, my mom, and my sisters, so it was nice to have a friendly, patient, and calm person to get us looking beautiful!

It took me 3 makeup trials before I found the talented Maria Lee. Save yourself the trouble I went through, and book her first!! She is sweet to work with, understands what you want, and knows her makeup inside and out.

I was initially drawn to Maria after I read about her background in fine art. Her degree in painting is so apparent in her makeup work because her sense of color is dead on. I have never seen any one match my skin color with a foundation more accurately--and she did it in a matter of seconds!

Honestly, I am so grateful that I found her. After spending nearly $250 on other makeup trials that were terrible, I started getting nervous. The second I saw my face after my trial with her all my anxiety melted away because I knew I had found what I was looking for.

The makeup she did for my engagement session as well as wedding day was flawless. I cannot even begin to tell you how many people asked for her name on the actual day of my wedding!

Here are pictures of our engagement session and wedding day in case you want to see what a fab job she did. :)

My experience with Maria was phenomenal. When planning for our wedding day, I wasn't really sure about how I wanted my make-up and hair to be done, but she coached me through it. She offered great suggestions and I really valued her opinion. I had Maria do my make-up and hair for both my engagement photo session and my actual wedding. Maria was patient, comforting, and cool headed even with the time crunch on the wedding day (everything a bride needs during one of the most hectic days of her life).

For my engagement photo shoot, she recommended to apply the make-up on a little heavier than normal since it would look better for the pictures and since I wouldn't be seeing anyone except the photographer and my fiance (now husband). The engagement album came out great! We've gotten so many compliments and several inquiries about who my make-up artist was. I'm extremely happy with how my make-up and hair came out in my engagement photo album.

On my wedding day, Maria and her assistant did the make-up and hair for my four bridesmaids and me. The day started at 5:00am in the morning and she was on time, fully prepared, and level-headed (unlike me). Everything she promised, she delivered. My bridesmaids and I couldn't have been happier with the result. While I was walking down the aisle with over 300 people staring at me, it was so comforting that I loved the way I looked. We just received our wedding photo album from our photographer, and Maria's magic shined on every picture of my bridesmaids and me.

Maria was respectful of my schedule and adhered to it on the dot. She was clear about how much time she needed to do the make-up and hair on my bridesmaids and me on my wedding day. This allowed me to plan appropriately to make sure the wedding day started off right. She clearly communicated her plan and was available to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend Maria to any bride. She is extremely easy to work with and will ensure that you look great on the most important day of your life!
