Makeup Artists in L.A.

Hi, anyone have any experience with the makeup artist Angelina T in Pasadena? I booked her for my upcoming wedding in April but my good friend who's also getting married next year also did a trial makeup with Angelina and was very unhappy with the results, her skin turned yellow.

I'm worried since I had already booked her and cannot cancel. Would it be bad if 1 hire 2 diffrent makeup/hair artists for my wedding but have Angelina work on the BM or maybe the sisters of my Fiance?

Also anyone have any good experience with makeup/hair artists that is familiar with asian faces in the Los Angeles areas with good pricing.

Thanks!

Everyone seems to rave about Vivian Tran out of Brea. If I were getting married in LA, I would definitely give her a try...

Have you done a trail with Angelina T? Maybe you'll like her work. Also inregards to your friends skin turning yellow, maybe it won't happen to you. You and your friend have different skins and this might not happen to you. Unless you have a trail, you will never know.

Thanks for the suggestion marymar5. Yes, i have had a trial w/ Angelina already and i thought she was just ok nothing special but me being impusive decision maker, i made a decision too quickly.

Oh. I could relate with the impusive decisions. I think the majority of brides do the same thing.

I highly recommend my makeup artist Nora. She is so good and I received compliments all night. My makeup lasted all day and my photos came out great. She is reasonable too. Check her out at www.puresemblance.com

I booked Natalie Buketov. I had trial with her last month (PIB). She has a lot of experiences with Asian brides
