I've always worn make up but never even visited a make up counter, didn't own any make up brushes and relied on the labels on packages to "teach" myself how to put on makeup. I took advantage of the shopping with Ariel as well and was impressed with how cost conscious she was (though I was willing to splurge on certain items with her discount). She told me what shades and colors worked for me and encouraged me to be a little adventurous too. Ariel is kind and patient and made me feel so at ease. She showed me how to apply the makeup and then let me try. She also provided an instructional video which I have been using as I get used to the new process and tools. That was invaluable As someone who is in a professional sales position, appearance matters and with Ariel's help, I feel great about my new look - natural and not too heavy but people have noticed the difference! Really a worthwhile investment in yourself.
Ariel was so helpful on my prom day. It started when I was on my way to her for only a tattoo coverup and I got lost. I called her freaking out and she told me to calm down and she guided me to her place. She is truly a talented artist. I couldn't even see my tattoo (a very large one) once she was done. She is the perfect example of an entrepreneur that is striving to make their business better. I know she will go further in her business. She also did an exceptional job on my makeup for prom. Everything matched my medium to dark skin tone perfectly! I will definitely be using her services again!!!!!
My wedding designer, SarahParkEvents, recommended Ariel to me when I was at wit's end about choosing a makeup artist. By wedding time, I had my makeup done by multiple make up artists for engagement shoots, other weddings etc, so I knew what looked good on me but was wary about people who could deliver without outrageous prices. I was about 2-3 weeks away from my wedding and had not found anyone that I felt could apply makeup on an asian girl's face (aka me and my bridesmaids) well without looking like an clown/import model. But, I was short on time and I trusted my designer because she had worked with Ariel on a bunch of photo shoots and seen her work first hand.
Ariel's team was super quick and responsive when I contacted them even though I was in a remote area with limited internet/cell phone access at the time. She easily accommodated my schedule for my make up trial even though she was already super booked. Ariel is really easy to work with and does absolutely everything she can to make sure that your look is perfect and exactly what you want. She's also receptive to any requests you might make. To be truly honest, I was still a little skeptical after our trial - but that's what a trial is for to get all the kinks out.
On the day of the wedding, Ariel was prompt, fun, professional and super efficient, which is crucial when there's a million things to do the morning of. A few of my bridesmaids decided at the last minute that they wanted their makeup done and she did their makeup beautifully in record time. Even my hair stylists were impressed at how fast and great she was. She had considered everything that we wanted to change from the trial and when I looked in the mirror: presto~she did her magic. She even brought different length eyelashes to make sure that I got a natural look.
All in all, I couldn't have been happier with Ariel's services. She's really passionate about what she does and it's evident in her work.
Melinda & Mara did an amazing job with hair and makeup!! Ariel runs her team like a true professional. The girls she hires are: on time, professional, talented, and very easy to work with!
I flew Ariel up from MD a couple weeks ago to do my makeup for my daughter’s Bat mitzvah. She was wonderful, friendly, and so talented. I heard from my sister that she was great but Ariel exceeded my expectations. I looked 10 years younger after being airbrushed.
Sheis the best hand down. That's it.
I am an older women (54) who just got married for the second time. Naturally I was nervous about having my makeup done by a young artist. I wanted to look classy and not over done. Ariel achived a look for me beyond my expecations. I trully felt like a celebrity. She is such a warm and professional person. Her assiatnt Laura was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. Ariel runs her bussiness flawlessly. Thank you for sharing your tremendos talent with me on my specal day.
I am a production coordinator for Blue Rock. We hired Ariel to do the makeup for our latest music video and she and her team were amazing... so detail oriented! If you are looking for a true professional that knows how to make magic happen on set this is the team and the PRO for you! It's no wonder she is blowing the competition out here out of the water. Thank Ariel you made our job in post production so much easier.
I would like to share my experience with Airbrush by Ariel and my daughter's MUA Mara D.
Last Saturday (5/11/13) was my daughter's senior prom. As a mom I had everything in place. Dress, tailoring done on the dress, a professional MUA lined up and a professional hairstylist setup. Saturday morning I get a call from the scheduled MUA-" sorry no can do today, I'm sick & my child too". Of course I understand but come on not today!!! It's my daughter's day! I immediately tell my daughter and she starts panicking. We live in the boonies in Md and drove to the closest large suburb. I find this site and called Ariel. OMG what a sweetheart. She was able to book us an appt with TWO options 1) a MUA come to our house or 2) we could drive to one we were near. I chose option two b/c I wanted it done & we were out and would just go to the MUA. This is where we met Mara D., a beautiful talented artist. She was sweet and kind. She knew her stuff too! My daughter was the prettiest at the prom!
Thank you Ariel and Mara D!!!
I would highly recommend using Airbtush by Ariel and mua Mara. I will defiantly use again and recommend to my friends.
Ariel is absolutely AWESOME!!! She is an AMAZING artist! You can definitely tell that she enjoys her work, and is passionate about what she does. She was very professional, extremely personable, a complete pleasure to around, and I would certainly recommend her for any occasion!! :)
I'm always skeptical about working with people I don't know. I was searching for a makeup artist to cover an event a few weeks ago and added my requirements to Gig salad. Ariel was the first to contact me and follow up. While I was unable to use Ariel for the event I did reach out to her last minute to do my makeup for a night out with the girls. Ariel was prepared, thorough, professional, and most importantly passionate about her craft and talent. I was truly pleased with the work that she did and I got alot of compliments. I was not madeover. My makeup looked very natural. I will continue to reach out to Ariel because of her talent and great business attitude. Did I mention she is a sweetheart?! I highly recommend her.
I could not be more impressed by Ariel and her work (and this is coming from a huge makeup guru.) At first I was afraid I'd have to settle with an "good" makeup artist, but not someone I was wowed by...until I stumbled upon Ariel! I instantly knew that she was above average and very very high quality! Not only is she incredibly kind, flexible and knowledgeable but also has such a great personality and was a pleasure to laugh and talk with while getting ready for my wedding. Ariel is probably the highest caliber makeup artist I have ever worked with and my 60 year old mom still talks about how much she loved the airbrush and Ariel. I could not recommend Ariel more! It is so important to look as great as you feel on your wedding day..and Ariel will capture the exact look you are going for and you will look fabulous! Thanks Ariel & co :)
Ariel did my (the bride) and my mother's make-up for my wedding. She was phenomenal!! My mother is very conservative and does not wear any make-up and Ariel did a wonderful job keeping her look very natural. I wanted a more dramatic look (specially my eyes) since I wear make-up on a daily basis. Ariel did an outstanding job explaining everything that she was doing and always checking in with me to make sure it was the desired look that I wanted. I was extremely satisfied with my look and so was my groom :)
My mom and I chose airbrush make-up and I and so glad that we did. It lasted the ENTIRE night (12pm - 1:30am). The airbrush make-up gives you a flawless look without the heavy feeling that you get from traditional makeup.
I would absolutely recommend Ariel to any bride or bridal party. She is so sweet and her craftsmanship speaks for itself. I felt completely comfortable with her automatically and I didn't even get a trial (that's saying something)!
my daughter had a two hour amke up lesson. It was sooo nice. very welcoming and thoughtfully planned. Ariel was nice, kind, open, professional and fun. There was a nice ambiance, a little stereo playing, and there was a good plan for the lesson. Some get to know your current makeup, then an assessment, then a discussion of general principles, and then the lesson. We took a few videos with well done instruction. We ahve good notes that my daughter can use. Ariel was not pushing any product, which was a pleasure. She was very knowledgeable, very balanced, and in general we left wanting more. Way to go - Ariel!!!
Ariel is a flat out genius of a makeup artist, plain and simple. She can create a look for you based on pictures you send her of yourself and "inspriational" photos of celebrities and others. And the results are nothing short of jaw-dropping. I'm not artistic, but somehow, she gives you a beautiful face, hides flaws, plays up your assets, AND, she a master at using airbrush makeup in a way that reflects and enhances the way you photograph. When she did my big "reveal," I was literally screaming, running throw my house, amazed at how beautiful I looked!! Beyond her absolutely stunning artistry, Ariel is prompt, responsive, profesisonal, and charges a very fair price for her services. Ladies, if you want to be transformed into a natural-looking, but gorgeous version of your normal self. HIRE ARIEL NOW! I'm not exaggerating. She's *that* good.
I was unable to book Ariel, but her makeup artist was amazing! They both joined in for my trial run back in August. I felt more comfortable knowing that even though Ariel wasn't doing my makeup she was collaborating with her teammates to ensure my look was perfect! On the morning of my wedding my artist was punctual and beyond prepared! I have never looked so flawless!! I truly felt that the whole experience was personal, luxurious, and classy.
-I suggest booking hair and makeup at least 6 months in advance!
-I 100% reccomend Airbrush Makeup over Traditional!
-I LOVED my organic spray tan By Ariel!
-Only thing I suggested was including a mini mascara in my touch up bag
These girls are beyond talented. I recently worked with Ariel (Owner and Lead Makeup Artist) and Melinda (Lead Hair Stylist) for a wedding in Baltimore. They were so professional and fun to work with. The bridal party loved their warm and friendly personalities. The Hair was Gorgeous! Melinda took the time to hear exactly what each bridesmaid was looking for and delivered exactly what they wanted. I was particularly impressed with the hair because usually hairstylist drive me crazy... hair is always falling by the time our reception photos being. Not these Up Do's & Down Do's they really lasted though out the night as did their airbrushed faces. As a photographer I shoot hundreds of weddings and I went out of my way to get their information for referrals (which I rarely bother to do).
I was amazed at how beautiful the makeup turned out to be. I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding a few weeks ago and had not planned on having my makeup done professionally. After seeing the bride and her family after their makeup was done I was sold. I told her I didn't wear makeup often and wanted something pretty natural with smokey eyes and that's exactly what I got. I felt like a movie star and she stayed with the wedding party after the ceremony as well to touch up our makeup for pictures etc. overall she did a fantastic job! Very fun to talk to and very knowledgable with what she is doing! Thanks Ariel!
I can not emphasize enough how much I loved ariel's work! She did mine, my bridesmaids and families makeup for my wedding a couple weeks ago! She made us all feel like a princess with her beautiful makeup! She was so organized and arrived early to set up on the day of my wedding. I went for a trial run for makeup and spray tan at her home stuido a couple months before the wedding and she made me feel like we have been friends for years! The spray tan was amazing and lasted long and left me with a beautiful glow! The makeup she used was awesome too, it was so light, it hardly felt like I had makeup on my face yet looked so beautiful!! We hired her to stay a little longer to touch up makeup after the ceremony, so my makeup was fresh for pictures. She stayed right by my side and made me feel like a movie star! I will be going back to Ariel lots for spray tans and whenever I need beautiful makeup because she was so friendly and amazing!! My aunt has already booked another spray tan with Ariel!
Ariel did my make up for my friends wedding in which I was a bridesmaid! I've never had airbrush make up done and I was thrilled with the results! She's very good at individualizing each persons look and gave me exactly what I wanted! The whole wedding party looked beautiful!
Yesterday, I had my trial airbrush makeup done by Ariel. I appreciated her fitting me into her busy schedule and I found her to be very warm, knowledgeable, and passionate about her work. I look forward to my wedding on August 25th and I'm confident I'll look beautiful with her doing my makeup!
I recently had my wedding makeup trial with Ariel and loved her work! She was professional, easy to work with, and a joy to be around! She really knew how to interpret the look I wanted based on my description and was very easy to talk to about my wedding party needs. She was also excellent in making sure everyone in the wedding party that had any specific needs was documented ahead of time to prepare for any circumstance that might arise the day of the wedding! I can't wait to work with her on my wedding day on September 1st!
I had my prom day on May 11 and I was so excited because I knew that I was going to have a professional doing my makeup for me. So when Ariel came to my house I was very excited because she had a great aura about her, she was very nice and had a great attitude which made me more comfortable around her. While doing my makeup she was very gentle and interacted with me. When she was finished with the makeup. I was absolutely floored by the result, I felt even more beautiful for my prom and I got many compliments on the makeup. Thank you so very much Ariel, I most definitely will keep you on call whenever I have a big event because you are one talented individual ! Thank you so much and good luck with your business :)
Ariel's makeup skills are amazing! She came over to do my makeup for my Bat-Mitzvah ceremony and party and was so nice, listened to what I wanted, and made the makeup look so natural and stunning! The eye makeup was so pretty and I got a huge amount of comments from my friends and even now, months later, people still from time to time tell me how amazing I looked that day!
Personally I wear very little make-up on a daily basis (chapstick... if that counts) and I booked a consultation with Ariel for a trial run for my wedding day. Not only did she transform me in a very natural way that I felt comfortable in... but my skin was flawless with the airbrush make-up and it was so light that I didn't feel like I was wearing anything!!! The best part is the way she does eye-makeup, it's just amazing! I got so many compliments from my family & friends, not to mention the make-up easily lasted 16 hours! And to make things even better is her warm personality, she easily makes you feel relaxed and just brightens up your day . This was the best experience I've had during my wedding planning process. She is absolutely AMAZING!
I like very natural makeup. I love to look like I have naturally perfect skin. Ariel achieved this for my wedding day. My eyes looked amazing and my lips were the perfect shade. I love that she offered discounts for products that I loved. She is so talented. Highly recommended.
I personally have received a makeup application by Mrs. Ariel. and
she did a fantastic job! i had got my makeup done by her for my junior prom, and not only did i feel beautiful, i looked amazing, and my makeup had just tied everything together. it was absolutely perfect! I LOVED everything from the colors of shadows she chose, to the flawless airbrush application on my skin! she brought out beauty that i didn't even know i had! & for the price she charges its not bad, only 60 bucks! it includes a perfect eyelash application too! and my friends couldn't stop telling me how great my makeup looked. thanks to Ariel's perfect makeup application. I will be defiantly contacting her next year for my Senior year prom!
Ariel did my make-up for my sister's wedding which I was a bridesmaid in and I absolutely loved it. She did an excellent job and was very professional. The airbrush made my skin look flawless! Also, Ariel gave me multiple options while doing my makeup which let me know she wanted me to receive to exact look I was going for. She exceeded my expectations and completed my look for the wedding perfectly. I have received numerous compliments on how well done my makeup was for the occasion. I will definitely use Ariel's services in the future and recommend her to anyone who is searching for a makeup artist.
Ariel did an amazing job on my makeup for a wedding I was recently a bridesmaid in. The airbrushed look made my skin look flawless, yet still very natural and light . She is very artistic and chose the perfect colors for each bridesmaid which made us all look our best. I've had my makeup done by artists many times and this was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Ariel made me feel absolutely beautiful and radiant. I would definitely recommend her for your wedding or event.
I have used Ariel in the past for her makeup services and will continue to go to her in the future! I have never been disappointed. She is professional, knowledgeable, and does an overall amazing job! Ariel also listens to what you want and has a way of making it come true. I do not like to wear a lot of makeup or feel like it is too much. Ariel was able to make me look natural but still feel done up and look great. I would not hesitate to recommend Ariel to anyone. She is reliable and talented. You will not be disappointed!
Ariel is so wonderful to work with and so talented. She did my makeup on two different occasions--once for a wedding I was in, and once for a social occasion. Both times she was professional, fun, quick, and honest. She made me look and feel beautiful!
I found her prices to be reasonable, and loved the products she used.
I would definitely recommend hiring her, and I will continue to use her for special occasions.
I hired Ariel to do my makeup for a large charity event that I was hosting. I was not feeling attractive due to being heavily pregnant. I have never had more compliments about how beautiful I looked. People would tell me that I was the most beautiful person at the event. All of these compliments were completely unsolicited. Ariel was also completely professional and easy to talk with as she applied the makeup. I will definitely hire her again as needs arise. Fantastic!
I found Ariel through a bridal event at Visionary Arts Museum. My sister (MOH) and I were very intrigued just by meeting her. We scheduled a trial and she traveled to come to my house. We instantly hit it off and were very impressed. She was knowledgeable, personable, and had a lot information to offer personally and for the day of my event (my wedding).
Ariel even went as far as to take my eye makeup off to correct it before I could look at it because she wasn't satisfied.
Then when she showed me we were "sold". Ariel told me to leave the makeup on sleep in it and look at myself and pillow in the morning. I did this and was shocked my pillow was make-up free and my make-up looked the same as when she left the night before.
I then knew I will be able to be stress free on my wedding day with my make-up (airbrush make-up). It will look great and not budge! :)
Can't wait for the big day, Ariel!!!!
A friend, whose make-up was done by Ariel for her daughter's wedding, recommended Ariel to me for my son's wedding. Ariel did a very professional job with my make-up, plus she was very personable and made the session enjoyable for me. I was extremely pleased with the wedding pictures in which I was included. I highly recommend her skills for any special occasion in your life.
Ariel did my make-up for my bachelorette party. I was very impressed that she traveled a far distance and arrived on time! She is very friendly and enjoyable to work with. She had great ideas and was able to work with my ideas too. My make-up felt natural and looked fabulous! I was getting compliments all day. My make-up lasted from day until night too!
Response from Airbrush Makeup By Ariel:
I had a great time with you in the Hamptons. Looking forward to applying your airbrush makeup again for your wedding in June!
I used Ariel for my wedding makeup and she was fantastic! I had multiple trial runs and was unimpressed. I looked over done and caked... apparently not all airbrush makeup is created equal. I was referred to Ariel by a coworker who had her makeup done by her as a bridesmaid last year. Ariel is a perfectionist and will not be satisfied until you are 100% comfortable with the results. Her prices are actually lower then most of her competitors?... she could get away with charging so much more. Her ability to create a flawless and natural face is unmatched. Finally after 7 years she is advertising her services online! I feel like everyone is talking about her... I feel kinda lucky that I got her booked before she made it "Big" Lol...Keep up the amazing work Ariel. I will continue to refer you to all my friends!
I was more than thrilled with my airbrushed makeup that Ariel did for me for my homecoming. She has a very aimable personality and it was a complete joy to get my makeup done by here. That evening I received many complements on my makeup especially regarding my eyes. Every girl wanted to know how she did my smokey eye so well. Ariel helped me feel beautiful that night. I would recommend her to anyone of my friends !
My daughter Kylie wanted a professional to do her makeup for her senior prom, so I hired Ariel who I heard has had a lot of experience in doing makeup for a variety of events. On the day of the prom, Ariel arrived with all her tools. She was very professional and mature, and even listened to what Kylie prefers (being that Kylie knows a lot about makeup herself and she is quite picky). Ariel even did makeup for Kylie's two other friends that day in our bathroom, and was able to finish in a timely manner. In the end, Kylie and her friends were very pleased with the outcome, and I was impressed with Ariel's expertise. I would hire Ariel again, and I highly recommend her for any professional makeup job.
I spent a great deal of time looking for a makeup artist that would be able to work on 4th of July weekend, travel to our location, used airbrush foundation, and was reasonably priced. Believe me...it was hard to come by. Through word of mouth, I was lucky enough to find Ariel, and I could not have been more thrilled with the work that she did for me and my lovely ladies! She was priced so well that I was not expecting my trial to be all that impressive, but Ariel is fantastic! After the trial, I was confident that she would make me, my mom, my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and one of my bridesmaids look beautiful on my wedding day.
On my big day, after seeing the amazing work that she did, my maid of honor decided that she also wanted to get her makeup done. Ariel took it in stride and was more than happy to accommodate her! She was professional but very friendly and made us all at ease and relaxed the entire time. Most importantly, everyone was thrilled with their final looks!
I would recommend Ariel to anyone that is getting married, has a special event, or just wants a night out looking your absolute best!
I hired Ariel to come to my home and give me and 7 of my girlfriends a Makeup lesson for my 50th Birthday. It was great! We had such a good time (Wine, Brie & Makeup doesn't get much better then that). She was fun & professional. She gave us each a personalized "5 minute Face" routine and gave us a list of products that actually work! We got "goodie bags" with samples and discounts as well as written instructions for our new morning routine! She is so talented... I actually feel confident about doing my own makeup for the first time in my life! Unlike department store makeup artist Ariel wasn't trying to sell me anything. Her advice and recommendations were completely unbiased and actually work!!! I have spent hundreds of dollars buying makeup over the years that ended up at the bottom of my vanity drawer. She showed me how to use a lot of what I already had (at least what wasn't expired)... haha. I highly recommend treating yourself to one of her private or group lessons (she offers discounts to groups of 2 or more!). Her prices are beyond fair (we got the lessons for $70.00 each). Thats how much I would spend on one bottle of foundation & a lipgloss I don't know how to use at the Makeup Counter! Thanks Ariel you Rock!!!
Response from Airbrush Makeup By Ariel:
Anna I really appreciate you taking the time to write this review! I had a blast with you & your girlfriends. So happy to hear your confidence with makeup applications was boosted... that was my #1 goal! xo Ariel
A friend and I booked Ariel for a girls night/birthday outing. We needed something that would stay on and look great all night. It ended up perfect, never looked so good! Im hooked and don't want to attend a special event without booking a session , Thank u Ari! You are fabulous!!
I booked Ariel for my wedding last year and she was absolutely amazing. She airbrushed my entire wedding party including my 6 brides maids, my mom, my mother in law and my aunt. Everyone looked Flawless and Natural! It amazed us how light weight the airbrush machine she uses applied our foundation, bronzer, and blush. She worked great under pressure... we had a mix up with the photographer and limo so we ended up all having to be done in about 30 minutes each... she made it work and got us all done looking exactly how we wanted! Her prices are beyond fair and she provides discounts for groups larger then 4.
My biggest fear was not looking like myself on my wedding day... I wanted to look like the best version of ME... not too heavy... she achieved this perfectly. I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so!
Response from Airbrush Makeup By Ariel:
