Reviews from our clients and what exactly makes a Beauty Icon bride.
I found Beauty Icon on instagram and was already tired of my search to find makeup artists and hair stylists because many seems old fashioned to me. I was looking for a fun and soft look, something more natural with a glow and was scared to look too done up and not like myself. Paulina and Liz were exactly the artists&stylists I was looking for. They were so pleasant to work with and this is so important during the madness of wedding planning. -They were flexible in their arrival time which made the wedding day flow so much better. -My mom, mother-in-law and granda felt and looked so gorgeous and elegant. -My younger sister looked beautiful, the makeup and products that were used kept her looking fresh and were not heavy at all on her skin. -I had a very specific "natural but with a glow" look I was going for, and Paulina made sure I was loving it every step of the way (giving me the mirror, stopping and making sure I am happy). She put flowers in my hair, and when I looked in the mirror it was just perfect. Thank you so so much! <3.
I am so happy that I choose them for my wedding hair and makeup, and I HIGHLY recommend their services. They were professional and attentive throughout the wedding planning process. I had a total of 10 people (including myself) getting hair and makeup done on the morning of my wedding. Before the wedding, Beauty Icon worked with me to make a schedule for everyone’s hair and makeup shifts. Beauty Icon made what could have been potentially a very stressful morning, completely easy. Karina, Alena, and Tara arrived on time (6:45am!) and were cheery and fun throughout the whole morning of getting ready! The best part of working with Beauty Icon was that the artists really highlighted everyone’s beauty and accentuated their best features naturally. They used high quality makeup and products, but didn’t cake them on. All our styles lasted beautifully till the end of the night. (Which is especially impressive, because it was an August wedding with a lot of dancing!). Karina did the bridal hair and makeup, and I felt glowing and confident the entire day thanks to her. Thank you again Beauty Icon!
The studio was extremely easy to work with. Studio manager Oxana was very responsive and matched me to the perfect artists for my style and price range. Julia and Marina worked wonders the day of my wedding. They were friendly and made each bridesmaid, my mother, and my mother-in-law feel gorgeous. Julia created a killer makeup look for me and the perfect hairstyle. I felt fantastic on my wedding day and lover every photo I've seen. Beauty Icon NYC is truly the best team for your NYC based beauty needs!
I have been working with Liz for the past few months preparing for my wedding in Brooklyn NY and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with her. With a busy work schedule, it feels like wedding planning is a 2nd job but with vendors like Liz who are extremely talented, communicative, thoughtful, and professional, it was honestly one of the best decisions I could have made for my wedding day. You will not regret booking any service, from helping you on your wedding day or if you just want to pamper yourself. I will definitely be calling on Liz again in the future!
On my wedding day, Liz and Paulina showed up punctually on time super early in the morning since I had a brunch reception. They knocked it out of the park! With 7 women, they completed everything early for photos and even jumped in last minute to do make up for 2 of my party! Everyone loved their hair and make up
I can't thank Liz and Paulina enough for their awesome work, fun attitudes, and ability to jump in last minute and make it all work! Also, I can't rave about my hair enough...if I could wear that hair everyday I totally would! Thank you so much for everything Liz and Paulina!
I worked with Liz to coordinate the all aspects of details including setting up the hair & make-up trial to the actual wedding day. She was very organized, responsive, patient and accommodating. Galina did both my hair & make-up trial and wedding day look. She took all of my notes, inspiration and feedback from the trial and tweaked it for my wedding day. I am so pleased with how both turned out!
The studio was extremely easy to work and the studio manager, Oxana was very responsive and helpful. Alena was amazing! She was friendly and made myself, my mother, and my sister feel gorgeous in our wedding day looks! Alena was able to change up my wedding day look up from what we tried in our bridal trial and I was so happy with the end results and her flexibility and talent. She made my natural curly hair look stunning in a low-bun and made me feel beautiful with a natural make-up look. I felt fantastic on my wedding day and I love every photo I've seen. I would recommend Beauty Icon NYC for your hair and make-up needs for your wedding day in a heart beat!
I’m so happy that Liza did my makeup and hair for my special day! I love her natural makeup works and I was sure that she will do a great job and I don’t need hair and makeup trial but my friend insisted that I should do it to make sure. And I didn’t regret, it was beautiful and helped me to understand what exactly I want. But I have to tell you the makeup that Liza did on my wedding day was even better! After trial I thought I can’t look better than now but I was wrong. She also did makeup for my sisters in law and they were in love with their look.
Liza & Paulina were just amazing. I cannot find the exact words to describe them both. They were on time, and ready with everything. Everyone had a different hairstyle that they picked at that exact moment and wow it all came out so beautiful. 100 % would hire them again.
They were referred by my wedding planner and I could not have been more happy with them. They are true professionals and so nice, friendly, and fun to work with and they really understand the look their clients are going for. They listen to feedback, adjust accordingly and really know how to accentuate or compliment your best features. My bridesmaids and I LOVED our hair and makeup, it lasted perfectly throughout the whole evening and we had so much fun getting ready with them.
Paulina and Liz are amazing. They made all of my girls look so beautiful for my wedding. I have gotten so many compliments about how great everyone’s hair and makeup looked both on the day of and in photos. They are so professional — timely and very responsive. They even finished early with everyone the day of the wedding (impressive since they did hair and makeup for myself, 6 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and my officiant) which gave us more time to relax together before the ceremony! I also had Paulina stay to put my hair up and refresh my makeup after the ceremony and before the reception. She made it happen in 20 minutes! Really can’t recommend them enough. Thank you Paulina and Liz!!!
Liza was an absolute God sent for my wedding hair and makeup! Beyond her skill set, she brings a very calming and sweet demeanor with her. She was punctual, professional, hygienic, organized and all around amazing.
Paulina is the best! My friend’s sister hired BeautyIcon for her wedding, and the photos were great advertising for the team! I was thrilled with my results at both my trial and the wedding. I brought in a few photos of the look I wanted; Paulina was extremely thoughtful and responsive to my requests and provided helpful tweaks that enhanced the overall result.
Paulina, Liza, and Tatianna were amazing to work ever since the trial all the way to the wedding day. Every single person who got their hair and makeup done were in absolute awe of their work and could not stop raving about them. My makeup lasted the whole night, but made sure I had a touch up kit just in case. So easy and fun to work with, I highly highly recommend these wonderful ladies!
The perfect hair & makeup artist is such an integral part of your wedding day - they help you feel & look your best, bring together your bridal vision and set the tone for the day. As someone who does her hair & makeup on a daily basis, I knew that finding the perfect HMUA was going to be a challenge. Most were either too subtle, or too over-the-top - I couldn't find that perfect sweet spot. Until I found Beauty Icon.
Liza & her team are amazing. I worked with Liza on my hair & makeup trial as well as on my wedding day, and she did not disappoint. She's so incredibly talented, open and encouraging - she made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself, but never hesitated to make any tweaks or adjustments I asked for. My makeup looked perfect in photos, and everyone was absolutely in love with the hair look she created. Her team also did a phenomenal job on my bridal party, creating cohesive yet tailored looks for everyone, and constantly making sure everyone was happy with the outcome. My bridesmaids commented all day on how calming and reassuring they were, how gentle their application was, and how fantastic they felt.
On top of that, Liza was beyond flexible with the wedding day scheduling, even when I changed the start time again 2 days prior. Nothing was ever an inconvenience, and she made sure that everyone stayed on schedule, which was incredibly important to me. I would recommend Liza & Beauty Icon in an instant, and they will forever be my go-to whenever I want to feel extra special.
My bridal makeup was stunning and you delivered on the look I was going for, which was a high-glam, smoky eye, with full coverage and medium contour – which I recognize is not the typical bridal request. You perfectly executed this look while enhancing my own features and not looking overdone or like a stage performer. I also looked like myself, and not someone else. You also did a beautiful makeup look for my mother, who is very conservative and does not wear makeup at all. You gave her a very soft, natural look, and she looked stunning. You also did beautiful job on the bridesmaids and they looked like movie stars. I also appreciate that you took your time with your craft and yet remained on schedule. The hairstylist you brought with you also did a beautiful job with everyone’s hair. I loved my updo and the bridesmaids loved their updos and flowing curls. I also thank you for coming out all the way to Rye, NY from NYC/NJ and getting to my bridal suite on time (9am). For anyone considering Liz for their wedding, she is not only a talented makeup artist, but she is also highly professional in that she is punctual, accommodating, listens to what the client wants and delivers on that. She also has great energy and has a relaxing and calming approach. Even though we had a makeup and hair schedule, no one felt rushed and she even had time for some of the girls who didn’t elect to have makeup, but at the last minute decided that they wanted some eyelashes. Other things worth mentioning: Liz brought me a hydrating mask, which I wore before she started my makeup look. She also provided me with some of the lipstick I was wearing in a small vial so that I can reapply my lipstick through the day/evening. Also, I only did 1 makeup trial with Liz, which involved a bright red lipstick look. I later on changed my mind about wearing a red lip for my wedding, and so she executed that look I wanted on my wedding day without having practiced the look on me prior to the wedding and nailed it.
. Liz, Paulina and team are incredibly professional and talented. They were on time, organized and ran ahead of schedule which is on of the best things you can ask for on your wedding day. They preformed hair service on myself and bridal party and did an absolutely amazing job. The bridesmaids all requested different and unique hairstyles and they all looked beautiful and lasted throughout the heat during the day and well through the night. Liz did my hair and it was everything I could have imagined. It was beyond beautiful and lasted ALL NIGHT. It was also extra special because we were trying to find a way to incorporate my grandmothers pin into my look and Liz suggested we pin it in my hair and it was beautiful and the best idea! Again- I could not recommend them enough. The team at Beauty Icon was such a special part of my wedding day.
I planned my wedding very, very quickly, and I waited until the last minute to decide on who to hire to do hair/makeup—luckily Beauty Icon accommodated my last-minute needs and told me Liza Ray was available. Less than a week before my wedding, I had a trial with Liza. I explained to her that I wanted a glamorous but relatively natural look—hair down, makeup that would be subtle and complement my complexion (I’m a redhead). I showed her a few inspiration photos and from there she created a beautiful look, exactly what I wanted. The day of my wedding, Liza styled my mom and sisters’ hair—they all loved their looks—and once again created a glamorous, classic wedding look for me. Liza is also truly one of the most genuinely sweet people I’ve met. She was a joy to talk with during the hours we spent together during the trial and on the morning of my wedding. I can’t recommend Beauty Icon enough!
