Testimonials

Where do I even begin? Crystal is a makeup/hair genius! I hired Crystal because she was a referral from my best friend who also used her in her wedding, and quickly fell in love with not only her amazing work, but her calming and fun personality. Throughout th entire process she was professional and provided makeup/ skincare support up until the big day. But what I love even more, is how absolutely beautiful she made me feel on my actual wedding day. She is able to truly make people look like their most beautiful self without caking on a ton of makeup and making you look like a different person. Also, since she does both hair and makeup, she was able to seemlessly put together my entire “look” and touch things up along the with way. I couldn’t have imagined using anyone else and CAN NOT wait to use her again. If I could hire her as my personal glam squad every day I would. Do yourself a favor and hire her. You’ll sleep easy knowing you’re in the hands of a glam goddess.

I think it took me so long to write this review, because that would officially mean my makeup love affair with Crystal Aleman was over. I met Crystal 5 months before my June wedding, after having multiple failed trials with other hair and makeup artists. I am extremely particular in the sense that I prefer a natural look, but also have certain insecurities (dark circles under my eyes) and find that many artists cannot balance between the two. After my hair and makeup trial with Crystal (yes she does both!), I was not only impressed with her ability to do EXACTLY what I wanted, but also in her warm and welcoming personality. Crystal is so much fun to be around and this was something that I knew would be important for me. I wanted someone who would not only deliver on the look, but also someone who I would want to be there on the day of my wedding. In the months leading up to my wedding, Crystal was helpful, attentive, and in communication with me to ensure all of my questions and concerns were met. In that time, Crystal also came to my apartment to do my hair and makeup for my bridal shower. On my wedding day, I decided to have Crystal only work with me and she was able to bring a wonderful team to work with my bridesmaids. Crystal stayed with me all day, which I would 100% recommend!! It was incredible having her with me to touch up anything I needed in-between photos and walking down the aisle. To be honest, Crystal not only became one of my most valued vendors, but also a friend! She is incredible. Look no further if you are looking for someone who can master any look, style, or preference. Since working with Crystal, two of my friends in my wedding party have hired her and multiple people have asked for her contact information. I cannot thank Crystal enough and I am currently trying to find an excuse to hire her again

I had Crystal do my hair/makeup for my engagement photos! I loved her work and the best part was that my hair and make up lasted (it was perfect) for the 3.5 hour shoot! She was so knowledgable about each and every product she used and it make me feel even more confident as well. I told her what I wanted and she was able to create the exact look I wanted! She is very punctual and always one step ahead so you dont have to worry! She made me feel very comfortable while she worked! I loved that she was also able to travel to my apartment as well! Crystal is unbelievably talented & because of her background & expertise she knew exactly how much make up to apply so it would show up in photos! She is one of a kind and just so kind and friendly! 5+++++ stars! Thank you Crystal!

Crystal is the makeup artist and hair stylist you didn’t know you needed! From the moment we met she was nothing but professional and helpful. She provided so much (needed) advice, recommendations, and positivity leading up to the big day. She really wants you to feel beautiful and won’t force any look on you. I’m not one who wears much, if any, makeup and she made me feel utterly flawless on the day of my wedding. My bridesmaids LOVED her team, and they are not an easy bunch to please. None of them fussed over their hair or makeup and they couldn’t stop looking at themselves in the mirror. She is reasonably priced, always in communication, and so helpful. Hire her, you won’t regret it!

Talk about an incredible make up artist. After having the hardest time finding a makeup artist, I was introduced to Crystal who is so insanely talented. Crystal did the makeup for my bridal party all of whom have very different skin types and she did the most incredible job on all of us. We all went with very different looks, from natural, to glamorous, to bold and every one of us was in love with how our make up turned out. Having been in several weddings, it’s rare that everyone is happy with their make up. Crystal is so professional, organized, and fun to be around which is very helpful when she is hanging out with you the morning of your wedding! Crystal made me and everyone in my bridal party feel so beautiful. We were all getting compliments all night. I couldn’t recommend Crystal more! If you are getting married and want to look like a glowing bride with perfect skin, Crystal is your girl!
