Nina Barbosa Makeup Artistry
Nina was so amazing to work with. She showed up on time and prepared to our first makeup trial. Yes, I said first make up trial. Sometime between my first makeup trial and the week of the wedding, I decided I wanted to change the makeup "look" I was going for and Nina was so patient and flexible with me that she agreed to schedule a last minute makeup trial two days before my wedding. She listened very well to what I wanted and on the day of the wedding my makeup looked exactly how I wanted. She is such a good make up artist that she was able to do my make up, my mother's make up and my sister's make up exactly how we all wanted and all three of us had COMPLETELY different looks. And, our make up stayed on all night--through the tears and sweat of dancing. Nina is super friendly, easy going, professional, a great listener and a very good make up artist. I would recommend her to anyone!
Nina is nothing short of AMAZING. My hair was awesome, my makeup was to die for and my girls looked absolutely precious with their up do's. Nina drove 4 hours to get to me after she had already done a quinceanera party in the very early hours of the morning. She was upbeat, professional and super personable, not to mention totally reasonable. She also threw in some help to the MIL who had a misfortunate accident the day before the wedding and was left with a bruise. I would highly recommend her service, you will not be disappointed. Her positivity shines through in her work. Thank You Nina, girl you rock!
Nina Barbosa and her sister did our wedding party’s makeup and hair. Nina is super talented and very nice to work with. We looked really great in the wedding pictures, and I’ve never looked so beautiful before. The makeup stayed all night as we danced. Nina was willing to work with my small budget while other makeup artists turned me down. She did a fantastic job!
My first two meetings with Nina were impressive. She did awesome work and was extremely friendly and professional. However, my experience with her days before my wedding and on my wedding day were very different. Here is a copy of a post I did on a different website: DO NOT GO WITH NINA BARBOSA!! She was 2 1/2 HOURS LATE!! This made it impossible to take pictures before the wedding like we had wanted. This also caused me anxiety and stress. AND she did not stay until I walked down the aisle as promised. The list of negatives goes on and on including her asking me days before the wedding how I came up with the total amount owed and that I needed to add $100 for travel. I referred her to the contract SHE WROTE which stated the total AND that travel was INCLUDED! I know a lot of people rave about her...I was one of those but being that late with no explaination and no apology on my wedding day was inexcusable to me. She caused a lot of stress to me and my wedding party on my wedding day and we did not have a change to get some pictures that we really wanted because we ran out of time with our photographer! We would have had enough time if Nina had been ON TIME.
Nina from Nina Barbosa Makeup Artistry is very talented at what she does. Simply Dashy Photography had the pleasure of working with Nina on a couple of events this year. First was the Boudoir Photography Hair and Makeup for our bride-to-be and second was during a Ruby Hill Golf Club Wedding. Nina made our bride look even more stunning and gorgeous than she already is. Nina is very professional and very easy to get along with. Looking forward to working future events with Nina.
