Hi ! My name is Charisse and I am a NY State Licensed Aesthetician, Makeup Artist and Airbrush Tanning Expert. Choosing an artist for your wedding day should be as effortless as the makeup you wear. I promise to make you glow! I want to help you look your best, naturally. My approach to skin care melds my education of skin with my passion for art. I believe in approaching beauty as a holistic endeavor and I am committed to making you feel radiant in your skin.

I love what I do and have been doing makeup for weddings and special events for over ten years. My goal is to personalize the experience, and to create the vision you dreamed of on your wedding day. Many of the brides I've worked with don't wear a ton of makeup in their everyday lives, so we work together to make sure that the final look is as subtle or dramatic as they want it. Ultimately, I aim to make you look and feel amazing on your special day!

I work with very talented hairstylists and we can travel together on site for your wedding. We travel to anywhere on the Finger Lakes in Upstate NY. Same day Makeup & Hair trials available for your convenience. We want to make everything about your special day easy and fun!

Having Charisse do make-up for my wedding was one of the best parts of the entire event. The ladies and I looked absolutely amazing--Everyone involved and at the wedding loved it, and every person who sees our pictures says the same! Charisse is so talented and went above and beyond to make me look my best on my Wedding Day. She accommodated everyone, took her time, checked and rechecked--just cared so much that everyone was beautiful and happy. My extreme nervousness was calmed by my extreme confidence because of my bridal look! I give her the highest praise and recommendation and am so thrilled she took care of my family, friends and I on my special day.

Charisse did my make-up as well as my mother, the mother of my groom and a bridesmaid. Whitney did my updo and my six bridesmaids. They were not only incredibly responsive, professional and AMAZING at what they do-but they are FUN and the biggest sweethearts you will ever meet! We each brought in photos of our desired look and they made us look exactly how we envisioned in such a short time frame . Whitney worked her magic so quickly and provided us with updos that were flawless and lasted all night without any touch ups necessary. And Charisse made me look incredible! she knew exactly what to do in order to make my features pop in pictures. Several guests came to me and told me how amazing my hair and make up were. I felt SO beautiful on my wedding day-and thats exactly how a bride should feel.

Both women were very approachable and listened to what each of us wanted. They both showed up on time and really managed their time well. They made the morning so easy and stress free. I am recommending all brides I know in the Ithaca area to reach out to them. Thank you ladies -you were such assets on my Big Day!

Charisse does amazing work! I could not have been happier with my makeup on my wedding day. Charisse was extremely professional but also very personable. She was great at creating a natural but beautiful look for me. I would definitely recommend Charisse ( and Amelia, who did my hair!) to all of my friends and family.

I searched high and low for a makeup artist for my Seneca Lake wedding, I feel so fortunate to have found Charisse and in turn, hairstylist Amelia. Charisse was so responsive to all of my questions and e-mails. I met them both for the first time at my trial run and they did a fantastic job! I felt so confident in their skills and that they would make me a beautiful bride! On the day of my wedding, Charisse, Charisse's assistant Ashley and Amelia traveled to our Bed & Breakfast to do my hair/makeup, one junior bridesmaids hair, four bridesmaids hair/makeup, and my mom's makeup. All I can say is - WOW! They worked so quickly that we had time to spare and relax! Everyone looked so beautiful! The hair was fitting for each lady and the makeup looked very natural! I can't thank Charisse and Amelia enough for making me feel so wonderful on my special day!

We hired Miel Beauty for my wedding and had a wonderful experience, from our first meeting to our last. Charisse, Amelia and Ashley were so responsive, and did a fantastic job of helping me brainstorm my look and pick out the best hairstyles and makeup. On the big day, they had plenty of ideas for my bridesmaids based on our dresses and ideas. What's more, they were just so fun to have around and chat with, becoming just a bigger part of our group. Getting ready for the big day was just like a fun party, with the wonderful outcome of looking the best I have ever have in my life! I know my bridesmaids really loved them as well, and felt they worked magic. I am so thankful we had them on board to help us make this one of the best days of our lives so far!

The team from Miel Beauty was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I had a great experience with Charisse at my make-up trial so I knew she would be the perfect choice for my wedding. One of the best things I noticed while we were getting ready is that Charisse and her assistant asked each and every one of my bridesmaids to go look in a mirror and let them know if there was anything they wanted to change. A few had minor suggestions (i.e. more eyeliner) and they quickly made those changes until all the bridesmaids were totally happy with their make-up. They did a great job on 4 bridesmaids and my mom/mother of the groom - everyone looked like a glamorous version of themselves - not overly done-up and fake. And they were quick...we actually had time to relax before pictures! Not to mention it was very affordable. I highly recommend Miel Beauty.

Miel beauty did an absolutely amazing job on my bridal makeup, my bridesmaids' makeup, and the MOB makeup. Everyone looked gorgeous, but not overdone, and Charisse gave us all exactly the looks we wanted. The wedding day was very warm and humid, but my makeup stayed flawless all night and never looked cakey or oily. Charisse was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with, and you won't find another makeup artist that is a better value!!

In one word, Charisse Koba, the owner of Miel Beauty, was exceptional. Beyond making me look gorgeous on my wedding day (which was a feat in itself, really!), the whole process in working with her was a joy. Not only did she do the makeup for me (the bride) and my 7 bridesmaids the day of our wedding by herself, she also was flexible in doing spray tans for some of us a few days before the wedding. Rather than having our hair and makeup done at a salon, she came to us the morning of the wedding which made it so much more convenient and less stressful. Beyond her beautiful makeup application, she calmed my nerves that morning, and reapplied my makeup again once I started crying!! Charisse really made me felt more beautiful than I've ever been before. Her prices are beyond reasonable and the service was outstanding. Using Charisse and Miel Beauty is your best decision when it comes to wedding makeup!!

Charisse and Amelia were phenomenal parts to my wedding day! They were extremely easy to schedule trials and day-of services with, and very professional but not at all stuffy while working their magic on the bridal party. Together they did the hair and makeup for me and three members of my bridal party, including my mother. I had a few ideas about what I wanted for hair and makeup, but Amelia did simply amazing work on my hair based off of just one picture!! I was also impressed that they worked so quickly and only needed about 30 min per girl for each service. Charisse's makeup was lovely, and she carefully considered my dress, earrings, and theme when picking her palate. Charisse will consult with you about your makeup preferences and any allergies. The makeup stayed on despite a lot of happy tears, picture outside in the elements, and energetic dancing! Charisse also did a great job with my mother, who has mature skin and different makeup needs. My mother ended up liking Amelia so much that she is going to become her regular client!

I initially picked Charisse and Amelia based off of Wedding Wire reviews and was a bit nervous because their price was so reasonable - could their service actually be good? Please take my advice and book them today for your event, because they produce top of the industry work at prices that won't break your budget!

Charisse was an absolute joy to work with in preparation for our wedding. If first impressions are everything, I noticed immediately how radiant she was and wanted to learn all her secrets! Living in Philadelphia, most of our initial communication was over the phone, and I always received an immediate call back and she was always excited to chat and get to know what I liked and didn't like.

During my trial, she helped me figure out how to better care for my skin and gave me so many helpful tips that I have since adopted. I knew from the moment I met her that I was in great hands.

Then came the wedding and she gave me the most natural airbrush tan as well a beautiful natural makeup look that everyone commented on. I felt healthy and gorgeous all day because of everything she helped me with!

She is such a delight and put everyone at ease with her infectious laugh and kind spirit. It was so fun getting to know her and if I ever move closer to Ithaca, I'm calling her first to grab a glass of wine and chat! Thank you Charisse, I adore you!

Charisse and Amelia were a dynamite duo on my wedding day. Not only did they make me and the women in my party feel and look beautiful, but they were timely, efficient, and SO MUCH FUN to be around! We had a great time just talking while they did our hair and make-up. They are HANDS DOWN the best deal in the area for hair and make-up. The quality of their work is superb, but they are very reasonably priced. Being on a tight budget meant that I was careful with my vendor selections--I couldn't have been happier with Charisse and Amelia. Charisse went out and hand picked my lip color and brought me my own lipstick for touch ups throughout the day (she even made sure one of my BMs was in charge of it for me!). Whitney was fast and did EXACTLY what the girls wanted with their hair. ALL of my Bridesmaids raved about their hair and make-up. It's too bad I live in Washington, DC, or I'd be banging on their door to do my face/hair up for everything! I would not hesitate to recommend Charisse and Amelia for any event!

Charisse did make-up for me and my bridal party and it was truly a pleasure to work with her. She is very flexible and will work with you to meet any and all of your needs. Scheduling a trial was a breeze and she came to my wedding venue which was super helpful. She is an extremely talented aesthetician who was able to translate my vague descriptions such as "I want to look glowy and dewy but not too overdone" into exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day. I've never felt so beautiful. And besides all that she is so friendly easy to get along with, it felt like she was just one of my girlfriends helping me on my big day.

I was lucky to have had the opportunity to have Miel beauty do my and my bridal party's make-up. I was unable to do a trial because I was an out of state bride, but felt more than comfortable with her to go ahead and do our make-up the day of the wedding. Her flexibilty also helps calm any pre-wedding stress by traveling to your location so you dont have to rush from a salon to get back in time to get dressed. She also recommended a hair stylist to do our hair, who was also great and did exactlay what I envisioned. Miel Beauty's professionalism, experience, and service made us all feel comfortable and most importantly, beautiful on my wedding day!

Throughout the planning process, Charisse was very quick at responding to my inquires and was very flexible with scheduling my make-up and spray tan trials. She was pleasant to work with, a true professional, and delivers a great product! I was so happy that I acted early and was able to book Charisse for my wedding! I'm still getting compliments on how I looked at the wedding and I largely have Charisse to thank!

Charisse is an amazing makeup artist - I have worked in the cosmetics industry for years, and have always been fussy about the makeup that I have done by others (usually means going home to wash off what was done by the artist). This concern definitely applied to wedding makeup, as we've all seen the caked on look, as well as my general concerns being an Asian American woman, with different features than the standard American face. Charisse worked with me at my trial and listened to the look I was hoping to create, played around with the colors until it was just right. We tweaked a little here and there, but got exactly what I had wanted with the first attempt! She is relaxed, listens to what you want, and loves what she does which instantly puts you at ease. She also uses amazing products that feel lightweight, not cakey - I can't tell you how many guests at the wedding complimented me on how great my skin looked! I would recommend Charisse to my closest friends and family, which means I'd recommend her to any bride/woman who wants to look amazing on her special day. Case in point, my friend getting married next year asked Charisse if she is available to travel to Long Island!

Charisse is an absolute pleasure to work with! She came to my house to spray tan me and my girlfriends before my bachelorette party and it was so easy and convenient, plus we all looked great for the trip to the beach. Charisse also did my wedding makeup, as well as my mom's makeup and my entire wedding party. It was a blast to work with Charisse, she had great ideas and knew what looked best on everyone. Our makeup lasted the entire evening and I can honestly say I never felt as beautiful as I did that day!! I highly recommend Mielbeauty for spray tanning and makeup. You just can't go wrong. A+++

Mielbeauty is the best makeup and mobile spray tanning service in Ithaca and surrounding areas. They are professional, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. I hired Charisse to do my makeup, as well as my bridal party's, for my wedding and couldn't have been more pleased. I am very particular about how I like my makeup done, and was nervous that I would look overly made-up in my pictures. Charisse took the time to really listen to what I wanted, and the end result was perfect. I still get compliments on my makeup when when people look at my wedding photos. She was a joy to work with. She was punctual, got me and all the girls done on time and stayed while the photographer took the pre-wedding shots to assure I was pleased with how I looked in the pictures. I've since referred their services to many friends who have raved about the professionalism and quality of their work. I have also used the mobile spray tanning service on multiple occasions and the only downfall is how addicting it is! The convenience of the service paired with how natural and beautiful my tan looks have made this a staple in my beauty routine! If you're looking for a high quality, high end, affordable and professional beauty service, I would recommend Mielbeauty.

It was really great to work with Charisse and her crew. They were very accommodating even with last minute changes in our numbers. Everyone's hair and makeup looked absolutely beautiful. The only problem I had was that by dinner, my hair did begin to fall out of its updo a little. This was most likely due to the heavy hair comb I had in, but it would have been nice if it were a little more secure.

Charisse came highly recommended as the makeup artist for my wedding outside of Ithaca, NY in October. I was so impressed by my trial (before my engagement photos), spray tan (it was the perfect color and didn't flake off and I got it done the Wednesday prior to my wedding), and makeup the day of! Charisse and her assistant quickly and efficiently finished 11 full face makeups for myself, MOB, MOG, 7 bridesmaids, and Jr Bridesmaids! They were personable, hilarious, and kept everyone moving but comfortable the whole day. I can't say enough good things about Charisse!

Loved every moment of working with Miel Beauty. I was the bride and my makeup was amazing - I asked her to make it a little more glam on the eyes and I felt beautiful. They also did the make up for 3 bridesmaids and my mother and they all looked flawless. Its the best makeup I have ever had. The main artist is wonderful and her assistant was great as well. Highly recommend.

Charisse is a true professional! I hired Miel Beauty for make up services for my wedding. Also, I had a spray tan for the wedding which Charisse applied a few days before. The tan turned out perfectly golden, exactly the tone I wanted to match the occasion. On the day of my wedding Charisse and her assistant worked on myself and my bridesmaids and the result was exceptional. Our skin was properly prepped and each person was given enough time and attention. My own makeup was exactly what I wanted! It lasted the whole day and felt wonderful on my skin. Charisse is easy to work with and very responsive which was important given that I was planning my wedding from another state and we corresponded mostly by email before the big day. Can't say enough good things!

I had a wonderful experience with Mielbeauty for a second time! Once for a airbrush tan and then recently for my wedding makeup! She does a beautiful job, everyone kept commenting on how beautiful the makeup was. She understood that I wanted it to be as natural as possible while still looking great in photos and it came out great. I would definitely recommend Charisse for both makeup and airbrush tanning!

We all looked absolutely beautiful and our pictures were great! The pinup/cheesecake look made the day fabulous and fun. Having a makeover party at my house was very convenient, too. Bravo!

I highly recommend Charisse & Whitney if you are looking for 2 ladies that are not only professional but also extremely friendly. Whitney even came early the day of my wedding to make sure the irons were warmed up in time to start hair! (very professional and appreciated to ensure everyone was done on time!) I came across Charisse's services on wedding wire and I am very grateful to have found her! I was planning a Finger Lake wedding from out of town and she helped make the planning for hair and makeup very easy for me! The best part was that she came to us which made the hair/makeup part of the day not only very memorable but no stress and FUN!! I was extremely happy with the hair and makeup services that my girls and i received for my dream wedding on 9/28/13!

Charisse did a wonderful job with the makeup for my wedding. She was respectful of my many allergies to makeup and made me feel comfortable during the process. The makeup looked natural but beautiful and showed up well in photos. Thank you, Charisse, for helping me look beautiful on my wedding day.

We had a few issues with this vendor but she did a pretty good job; the make up artist (aesthetician) Charisse Koba is very nice, friendly and knowledgable. The make up, however, did not last long and we did not have a touch up base. It did last through most of the photos so that was awesome. The look was exactly what I wanted and I think she did an amazing job with the wedding party.
She also lost our cheque which sent us running to the bank during our honeymoon - the only real reason we lowered her rating.

Miel Beauty *Bridal Makeup Artistry & Airbrush Tanning* responded with the following comments:

This wedding group was lovely to work with. Melissa and I did discuss her purchasing a touch up powder on a couple occasions and looking back on this experience I wish we had made sure she had one. The package did not include touch ups and I always recommend a powder if the concern is oily skin. My wallet was stolen and having that happen was truly embarrassing and has never happened before. It is always my goal to make sure my brides are happy and in this case I was so sorry to have caused any stress.
