Because makeup is not only my job is passion!.



I believe that makeup should be used to enhance your natural beauty never to change it, and by using the right products in the right places I highlight a woman's best features and natural beauty. Passion for makeup began long before my career, and it’s that passion that inspires me to create a one of a kind look for you and your party.

Since your wedding day is one of the most important moments in your life, you want to look your best. I can give you a stress-free, low maintenance, yet glamorous look that will last until your last dance. My makeup is photo friendly (meaning your face will not appear whiter than your neck on photos) and tear proof (meaning your makeup will not run when you cry or sweat).

I offer different discounts depending on services and amount of people, as well as highly trained professionals to assist me in big parties. Don’t forget that this is your special day – spend your budget on what’s most important for YOU! and let your pictures speak for themselves.

Thank you!, for letting me be part of your special day!

Nadia is a magician. She is so patient and really takes the time to make sure you are happy. At my trial we tried a few different hair and make up looks until we got it the look I wanted. My hair and makeup was absolutely perfect on the day of my wedding, and my bridesmaids, mom, and flower girls all looked amazing too. She's so good at making sure you still look like yourself! I wish she could do my hair and makeup everyday!!

Nadia is fantastic at what she does! At my wedding trial for hair and make up, she tried a couple of different make up looks until we found the best fit for my style and look. As a red head, the black lashes and black eye liner looked a little too dark and sultry for my garden wedding, but on my wedding day she was prepared and gave me the soft look we had discussed at the trial using soft browns and lightly applied liner. She was so calm and a good peaceful presence on my wedding day that I really was happy she was there. Nadia takes pride in her work, and it shows!

It was the best experience ever!, after my "high end" makeup artist cancelled on me for the third time I decided that it wasn't going to work. I contacted Platform Studios and got a response from them right away. Nadia was very helpful! she brought up points that I didn't even think of before; like times and things that needed to be done before the ceremony. She then had a scheduled set up with all the times and names. We finished right on time!, every one looked so beautiful! Nadia and her team became part of my wedding. She even kept me calm when things went wrong with other wedding vendors. I'm so glad that my other makeup artist cancelled on me, and truly believe that things happen for a reason! Two of my brides maids are getting married next year and had already booked her. I can't say enough good things she's amazing, nice, and helpful. I recommend Nadia and her team to all my friends and family! Thank you so much!

Nadia is awesome!!!
I used Nadia’s services for my wedding last year so naturally when my best friend asked me to be in her wedding I knew I wanted Nadia to do my hair and make-up. She ended up doing the brides make-up as well as the hair and make-up for another bridesmaid. We got so many compliments on how great we all looked, everyone kept asking the bride who “who did your make-up it looks beautiful” So yes I highly recommend Nadia she is the best and very affordable.

I will definitely use her again in fact she also does photography so I had her take pictures of myself and my husband they were vintage theme, the shoot was fun I felt like a celebrity to have my hair, make-up and photos taken!!! and they are absolutely amazing, I am a little disappointed I wasn’t able to have her take my wedding pictures after seeing her work.

For my wedding I wanted my hair and makeup to look 60s, I brought pictures of poofy hair and smaller beehives with cat eyes and a pale lip color. I left the trial appointment with confidence and thought I chose the right person to execute the look. On the day of the wedding, her staff was running late and i ended up looking like I was attending a beach wedding, loose low bun and a dark lip. My bridesmaids were told to be there early and they were, Nadia's assistant was to start and prep them,she was so unprepared and didnt even bring hairspray. Her second assistant, the first one had to leave for some reason, wasn't much better, she kept leaving to buy eyelashes, bobby pins and im also guessing lunch since she was gone for over two hours. Now i had a stomach flu on my wedding, yet she was complaining more than i ever could, Her hand kept hurting because she said there was too much hair and then it was because of the weather. Bottom line, I felt so embarrased having my friends and family pay for something they were unhappy with and a bad experience overall. My sister went back home to redo her makeup because she felt she wasnt even wearing mascara.My photographer was delayed, due to the hair and makeup not being done,and we didnt have time for me and my husband to take the pictures we planned on. I didnt tip Nadia or her assistants because I felt like even the deposit was more than they should have gotten. I dont mean to be rude but it was a horrible experience.

Hi Melissa, I was surprised to see such low scores from you specially since your review was very sweet. I would like the opportunity to figure out why you felt this way. I believe that the qualityof the services provided at your wedding were by far top quality, the prices are by far the best and my staff and I did everything possible to work with so many people in the small suite evendow in the contract itspecifies the working requirements. Im sorry if you felt we were ever un professional, If anything I feel we worked very hard to ensure that everyone was pleased with both hair and makeup.Even at the end everyone just loved looking at themselves and seemed very happy. I responded to every question you had and even deleted a person the day of the wedding with no extra charge. I love what I do and feed back from past clients is very important to me, I just wish you could of mentioned something so that we could of avoided such a low score. Moving forward, Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding, I enjoyed learning about your traditions and loved working with your beautiful family. I wish you and jerret a life full of love together.

My fiance and I travelled to Tucson from England and had minimal preparation time in town before the wedding. I found Platform Studios on the internet and was extremely pleased with their services. They fit me in for trial appointments anytime I was in town and were easily contactable via email and phone from afar. Nadia Garcia was very attentive in designing my hair and make-up just as I liked it and was happy to try out more than one style until it was just how I wanted. She travelled to our residence the day of the wedding and made my bridesmaids and myself look absolutely stunning. Our hair and make-up stayed perfect all day without any need for a touch up. I was really pleased with Platform Studios and would recommend them to friends and family. They are very competitively priced and are reliable and professional.

The only issues we encountered were that the makeup application began late and that there were no hot rollers available. However, once the makeup started and all the hair completed, everything was smooth and turned out better than could ever be expected.

Platform Studios responded with the following comments:

Rachel, I do apologize for not using the hot rollers, I tought I had mentioned the day of the wedding that I found it unecessary to use them because I had purchased a new product that will help with the longeativity of your curls, as far as starting late, I do recall that my assistant was there on time and ready to start but you asked for a change to take a smoke break, and even so we were able to finish on time. I take what I do very seriously and work very hard to make sure that my obligations as a makeup artist are met, its sometimes happens that by uncontrolled circumstances we can be a few minutes late, a kept close communication with my assistant untill I arrived to make sure that everything was going accordingly, the good thing is that besides those minor set backs, everyones hair and makeup looked absolutely amazing and you were simply glowing. Again I apologize, but thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful wedding and thank you for your feedback. It was very fun working with you. I wish you the best on your marriage.

Nadia and Platform Studios were amazing! I live in Oklahoma but was married in Arizona, and was stressed about finding someone for hair and makeup. I originally chose Nadia because she was the only vendor I could find that had pictures posted of her work with brides and had a great and informative website as well. Nadia was always quick with her correspondence which also put me at ease. She answered all my questions and was so friendly and warm. She was very focused on making sure I was happy and had me send her pictures of what I was thinking for me and bridesmaids for hair and makeup. when I came for my trial she knew exactly what I wanted and I was so relieved and happy. Her work is amazing! The day of our wedding she came to my bridal suite with her assistant and did mine, 5 bridesmaids and the mother of the brides hair and makeup. We all laughed together and had a great time while we were getting ready. she made everyone feel so comfortable and it felt like another pair of friends were in the room. Nadia was also amazing at making she everyone looked their best, I was so happy about this. usually I find all bridesmaids will have the same makeup and it doesn't look good on all of them, but she made sure everyone looked amazing. The same was true about the hair. I had my hair down, and my curls she did stayed in tact the entire wedding and reception, and did not look stiff, AND it rained on our ceremony. It truly was a pleasure working with Nadia and her team, and I would highly recommend Platform Studios.
