“As an African-American woman, I'm sometimes disappointed by makeup artists' unwillingness to properly match or beautify my dark complexion. But with Maria, I was 100% OVERJOYED by the obvious passion she has for her art and for helping every client look and feel beautiful. My face was absolutely flawless after sitting in her chair, and my music video turned out fabulously. No filters required! She is timely, efficient, organized, calming, and really pleasant to be around. I feel blessed to have worked with her, because I know the time is coming soon when she will be in such high demand that it will be impossible to get into her chair. Book Maria while you can!”

“My experiences with Maria have been the most enjoyable. Not only does she do your makeup application flawlessly she tailor's it to what complements your natural beauty. I have also taken my teenage niece to her and she was able to make her glam while keeping it age appropriate. Maria makes you feel like family, I feel confident sending anyone her way!”

“ I had a huge event that I was preparing a long time for, which was my little sisters quinceñera. I am extremely picky when it comes to my makeup. I don't let just anyone touch my face and when I do there is usually something that I end up fixing when I get home. When I saw Marias work, I really liked it and decided to contact her. She responded very quickly and welcomed me to her home to do my makeup on that special day.  Let me tell you, she did an amazing job. I loved my makeup. She did it exactly the way I like it and when I got home I did not change one single thing about it. In addition, everyone was giving me compliments on it. I always recommend her when a friend is looking for a makeup artist. I will go back to her for my next event.”

“Maria has been transforming my face since September, 2014.  We have worked together for fitness photo-shoots, fitness competition and my engagement pictures.  As one of the biggest days of my life, my wedding, I had no doubt Maria would also be my make up artist.  She does art and is truly visible to the eye!  She knows what is best for the skin, the look, the occasion... she truly is a professional!  Did I mention she's a really cool, down to earth gal' too?  I would recommend Maria to everyone!”

“ I have had my make up done from Maria 3 times now for weddings I have been in. I can’t explain the amount of talent this women has. Maria made me feel beautiful when I was not happy with my self. I gained weight and I was nervous being in 3 weddings and not feeling like myself. With her talent, she made me feel beautiful. With her talent my make up was flawless and multiple people were commenting on what an amazing make up artist she is. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone! She is the best, for sure!”

-Ashley Reed

“I have had so many makeup sessions with the lovely Maria and every time her sessions are amazing and on point!

I will continue to pay her for makeup services and is worth every dime, which her prices are fair and great! Than you for beautifying my face when I need it!”

-Christie Monreal

“Maria, your truly amazing at what you do. I seriously sit here and look at other makeup artists and say " nope mine does it better " you even taught me how to contour and blend and do all that stuff. You're simply amazing. When you do my make up you make me feel BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for everything you do and I hope many more makeup sessions to come with you”

-Norma Martinez

“I would and have recommended Maria to do anyone's makeup.  She did my trial for my bachelorette party, I was absolutely happy that I couldn't wait for my actual wedding day.  On my big day I also felt fabulous... She does amazing work and wish I had her skills to do my own makeup. On both occasions I was extremely happy with her work.”

-Alexandra Rosas

“I loved your work before I even had the chance to let you glam me up and make me pretty. I remember wanting to have my makeup done for a date night but it didn't work out that first time around. We rescheduled and I'm so glad we did because it ended up being for a shoot instead of just date night and I was so satisfied with how you applied the makeup in such a short amount of time. You made me feel at home and welcomed into your home, which is also huge! Being a pageant girl and having to have harsh contour is something I was so use to doing on others and myself and I've found that it doesn't work for all or all the time. I loved that most about your work, that it wasn't harsh; it was natural but to the point where it made a difference from my every day appearance. I will continue to love your work, be inspired by it, and learn from it! For that I thank you”

-Keira Ebanks

“Maria did makeup for my daughter & I a couple of times and also did makeup for my daughters special occasion. That was by far, the best we have ever looked! She is very talented, time efficient, will go beyond extremes to fit you in schedule, she's creative and patient. She has a gift of making you look absolutely beautiful without changing who you are!”

-Renae Chamberlain

“What can I say that probably hasn't already been said? You are incredible! Your work is flawless and impressive every time! Your ability to match and flatter my darker skin tone never ceases to amaze me. You are very quick but not rushed. My face never feels heavy or overdone. You are extremely professional and detail oriented. You deserve to be styling celebrities...although us little people want you to stay with us forever! You are the most talented make up artist in Arizona, hands down!”

-Montriece Baker

“I have had the opportunity to have my makeup done by Maria on several occasions and I have never been disappointed. She is the best! I have had other makeup artists do my makeup in the past and they don't even compare. Maria is naturally gifted and talented. I don't even have to explain the look I am going for because I trust her expertise and know she will give me the best look that I could ask for. I have referred friends to her and everyone says the same thing. She never disappoints. After going to her, I would not even consider settling for anything less. She is truly the best there is!”

-Crystal Trinidad

“I was recommended to Maria by one of my really good friends. I'll be getting married this October and I was really worried about not finding a amazing makeup artist for my special day. Either they were overly expensive or not very professional. When I first emailed Maria she responded right away, that was something I really liked about her and was very important to me. I had my first makeup trial with her and she was very friendly, welcoming but more than anything, very professional. Maria really created and gave me the look I had showed her I wanted. It was a beautiful look that I still felt like it was me and I don’t want to run and take it off or change. I couldn't have found a better person to make me feel and look beautiful on my wedding day. Thank you Maria and can't wait for my bridal shower and wedding day.”

-Romina Moreau

“Maria has done my make up several times: when I became a bride, for personal and professional photo shoots, and also for my music videos. At this point, I refuse to let anyone else touch my face! I always leave feeling so beautiful and ready for whatever venture I may be heading towards. Not only is she an amazing artist, but

an amazing person and it definitely shines through. I'll never forget my very first professional photo shoot when she did my make up for, I had no idea what to do with my hair and she gave me a quick curl and my photos came out so beautiful!! It's always a pleasure to sit in her chair and I hope to be back real soon for that beat down!"
