Heather Spataro ~ Makeup Artist ~ Spataro Precision Aesthetics
I had the pleasure of working with Heather on my wedding day. I have nothing but positive feedback to give her and would without question recommend her services to anyone, especially brides. I have never been happier with my makeup and most importantly, though I was wearing more makeup than I regularly do, I still looked like myself. My makeup photographed well in my wedding pictures and still looked great when the party was over. She was friendly, professional, and very confident that I would be happy with the final result even though I was a little anxious, which made me feel better. I only took 1 star off for flexibility...through no fault of her own, my trial run had to be cancelled and we were not able to reschedule prior to the "big day" due to needs of her other clients. It was completely my fault but it would have been nice to be able to fit my trial in, though she is very popular and therefore very busy. However, I was absolutely 100% satisfied and would without question book Heather's services again.
I would recommend Heather to anyone wanting to look their very best on their wedding day! She was fantastic and made me look amazing on my wedding day!
Heather is AMAZING to work with! She did a phenomenal job on my makeup and even helped my eyebrows at no additional charge. My pictures of my wedding turned about great due to her amazing makeup application. Don't hesitate to hire her, she will make you gorgeous! :)
I was nervous about finding the right MUA for my wedding day - how you look is such an important part of your day, your photos, and your memories. I knew though upon meeting Heather for the first time, that she was the perfect hire. As a "type-A" bride, I had a lot of questions and concerns about the big day, but Heather put my mind at ease, and returned phone calls/emails very quickly. During our makeup trial, she was very receptive to any ideas I had, and also offered some great suggestions (and even everyday makeup tips!). She was one of the first people I spoke to on the morning of the big day, and she immediately calmed me down --I have to say, she is not only a very talented makeup artist, but a great girlfriend the day-of. I had her stay for touch-ups after our beach ceremony, and she was great. As someone with scarring from previous skin issues (and the self-esteem issues that accompany that), Heather made me look more amazing than I could have ever imagined. I would highly recommend her services to anyone, and I hope to use her services again in the future. As a bride, you'd really be missing out if you hired someone other than Heather!
I cannot say enough great things about Heather and the work she does. First and foremost, she is an incredible make up artist. I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day, due in large part, to the amazing makeup application she did. Not only is she an amazing makeup artist, though, Heather was there for me from makeup to walking dow the aisle. She made sure I had a fan close by to cool me off, made sure I was standing up straight in pictures, sewed the strap back onto my wedding dressed when it ripped...I could go on and on. Heather was an absolute joy to work with and she made my wedding day just that much more special. Just another bonus, Heather is incredibly affordable. If you book Heather you will not be disappointed!
Heather did henna for my husband and myself before the wedding and she did my makeup for the wedding. I wear very little makeup and was worried about not looking like myself. Heather was amazing and made me look just like I always do but flawless. I felt so beautiful. She also went above and beyond after the makeup was complete. I had a backyard wedding and just before the wedding started my neighbor began to mow his lawn. Heather ran over and got him to turn the mower off just before the music began to play. Now, that is service.
I cannot say enough about Heather. She was more than just a make-up artist on my wedding day. She had static guard and scissors at a moments notice, she fixed a couple of boutinnieres that had broken, she helped a TON with pictures. She arrived in plenty of time to set-up and get going right when I needed her. She made me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. Worth every penny!
She was amazing. I booked with her for airbrush makeup for my Friday wedding on pretty short notice. She was wonderful and gave me exactly what I wanted for my wedding day makeup. She met me at my house and when I had forgotten my keys, she chased me to another location and set up and got started. Everything was perfect and I got so many compliments. Thank you Heather.
Feeling beautiful on your wedding is every girl's dream and Heather absolutely fulfilled my vision and then some! She is so talented and knowledgable about everything beauty related and she gives awesome tips while creating her masterpiece. My number one concern was my eye makeup staying put through the tears and I was so happy with the results! My makeup stayed flawless the entire night and when I look back at pictures I'm super pleased with her work. I would recommend her to anyone looking to feel beautiful, look beautiful and learn from the best!
When your choosing to have your make up professionally done, Heather was the right choice for me. She was outstanding and knowledgeable in her field. I recommend picking a package which includes a trial run. Her prices were reasonable and I didn't have any worries before my wedding day or on "The" actual day. I looked like I was glowing. Thank you Heather!

Thank you Myndi!! I was thrilled to be a part of you special day! Thank you for inviting me into your home and being such a fantastic bride!! :) A life time of love and happiness to you both!!!
So awesome! Heather is amazing and her make-up skills are awesome! She really pays attention to detail and does exactly what the bride wants. And her 'worlds best bridesmaid' addition is the best money I spent on my wedding by far! She was worth every penny! You don't realize how much you need an actual assistant on your wedding day. Not a bridesmaid, but an assistant. Someone to carry your train, fix your hair, fix your veil, spray your dress with anti-static minutes before you walk down the aisle (yes she has an arsenal of things that she carries with her), fan your eyes so your tears don't smear your makeup, help fix your spanx (yep, she did that too)....and someone to calm you down when your about to take your first step towards the rest of your life....she is the one who is there. I would recommend her to anyone who wants about 10 lbs of stress lifted off of their shoulders the day of their wedding. She is not only priceless with her skills, but she is a wonderful woman and an amazing person. She is super easy to talk to and really easy going. Highly, Highly recommend!!!!
I've never been a confident person or really seen the outside of myself as anything remotely close to beautiful. I needed that on my wedding day and it was literally the one thing i feared. At first I had no clue how i was going to pay for a make up artist. Fortunately i could find the means and Heather made me feel like a perfect classic beauty. She made me the bride I had dreamed of and if I had another opportunity to work with her, I wouldn't think twice:)

You ARE beautiful!! You may not see it, but everyone else does, and if people telling you isn't convincing you, maybe the fact that I am using you as the face of my Bridal Makeup business should help you see. I loved working with you and seeing the shock in your face when you looked in the mirror and said how pretty you felt. Now what we need to do is work on showing you how you can feel that way every day wether you wear makup or not!! It was a pleasure meeting and working with you. I was so honored to be a part of your special day. I wish you many years of happiness and love! Let me know if there is ever anything else I can do for you!!!! Hugs, Heather
I don't think I could ever thank Heather enough for her assistance on our wedding day! She has amazing skills as a makeup artist, but that's not even the best part. When it felt like everything was going wrong (rain ruined our outdoor ceremony and even our tent reception), Heather stepped up and took over as our decorator/coordinator. She did a fantastic job and ensured that my husband and I had the wedding we'd been dreaming of. I don't think the day would have turned out as well as it did, had it not been for her. When I was stressed out to the max, Heather realized it, made me take a step back, and assisted in any way she could....soaking wet, might I add, because we all got caught in a rainstorm with not enough umbrellas. Her assistance was worth 1000x what I paid!! I can't say enough good things about her =)
My name is Shelby Dreyer, and I am so happy that we had the privledge of working with Heather on June 10th, 2011. She was there to do my make-up, as well as 5 others. She did so much more than her job. When I read on her website that shes "does so much more than your job entitles you" it couldn't be more accurate. I asked for her business as a make-up artist and recieved so much more. Not only has she worked with us for more than... a year now, being completely flexible and helpful, (my husband is a Marine, and if you know the military, dates are never certain), but shealso did so much more than my makeup. She carried my train, my bouquet, directed me when I was clueless, worked along side our photographer to ensure the best shots and even helped me use the bathroom! At one point she even hid behind me in a photograph on a windy dock just so my train would be perfectly positioned! I am glad to say that I am your friend♥.
For my April 2011 wedding, I hired Heather to do the makeup for myself and 3 bridesmaids and I am so glad I did! She was a joy to work with; professional, knowledgeable, kind and very good at what she does! We did a trial run at my house a few weeks before the wedding so I knew exactly how I would look on the big day well beforehand. On the wedding day, Heather came right to my hotel room to do all our makeup. I also had her stay on through the pictures and ceremony for touch ups and I cannot begin to describe how wonderful it was to have her around! Not only did she do a fantastic job on everybody's makeup, she was there at every turn to help me with my train, get me a sip of water, replace an errant hair, etc. Anytime I needed anything she was right there to help me. She also worked along side my photographer to make sure our wedding pictures turned out awesome! Heather was an absolute godsend throughout the day and I can't recommend her highly enough! Thanks Heather!
I highly recommend Heather's services. She does a beautiful, professional job to suit your makeup vision for special events. Experienced and a lovely personality to boot.
Heather does beautiful work. She takes her time and see's your vision and gives you exactly what your looking for. With her eye for detail, she will make sure your perfect during your entire time of being photographed. Not only does she do weddings, but proms, photoshoots and other important days for you. Book her once and you'll be hooked!

My solution is offering lower cost makeup application options from which your party members can choose. I work on only two parts of the face allowing each prson to still indulge in the pampering they deserve.
You may choose to pay for these services as a gift or make it the responsibility of each girl.
Note: If the amount of people, not including the bride, go above 5, I will require the help of my assistant which is $50.00. The Bride is my main priority and the help of another artist allows me to keep focus and and be effective with time.
Groups requiring an assistant will be charged a $50.00 non-refundable deposit.
