Raves & Reviews
I feel so lucky to have found Ashley. After getting engaged, & with a lack of confidence in front of the camera, I knew I wanted to find someone who would truly make me look (and feel) amazing on my wedding day. First, Ashley did my makeup for our engagement photos…& immediately I knew I needed her for our wedding day! Not only is she an incredible makeup artist, who made me look like the most beautiful version of myself, but also her personality made me and my bridesmaids feel comfortable like we knew her for years. Her insights, professionalism, and expertise made me feel so at ease when getting ready on the big day. I was never nervous about how my makeup would turn out. Recently, we just received our wedding day pictures and video and I love the way I look in them all! I’m so appreciative to Ashley, and now that the wedding is over, I’m literally trying to envision another event or excuse for her to do my makeup because she is the best!
What a treat it was to work with Ashley on a beautiful boho styled shoot. She is a gem to work with! As a photographer, I often am left with a lot of post-processing work to make everyone look their best, but Ashley has got you covered right from the start. She’s creative and knows how to make people shine their brightest! I loves the bright palette she used for the shoot, and her bubbly energy. She’s easy to work with, versatile, and fun! I’d recommend her for sure.
Ashley was such a pleasure to work with! She was very quick to respond to all of my emails and assisted me with putting a beauty schedule together for my client’s wedding day. On the day of their wedding, she was on time and the bride was thrilled with her beauty treatment. It really lasted throughout the event as well, which is so important. I highly recommend Ashley and her team!
Ashley is a wonderful makeup artist and consummate professional. She is also a very lovely person to spend time with. I asked for a natural “no makeup” look for a family photo shoot. I looked like me, but better. Every step of the process was super organized and clear from setting up the contract to convening on the day. I am so looking forward to working with Ashley again soon.
Ashley! Where do I begin to thank you? I don’t think I can truly describe how amazing you are. You totally understood my vision for how I wanted to look for my wedding and you exceeded all of my expectations. What could have been a stressful and chaotic day, was so peaceful, relaxing and fun! My bridesmaids were so happy with the way they looked-and everyone had a great time with you! Thank you for everything-you are SO talented and wonderful! XOXO
I loved Ashley, she did such a great job. Not only the perfect look I wanted to have, she made me calm, relaxed, happy and excited for the wedding when I was very nervous and did not know what to do. The make-up stayed perfectly until next morning. I was having so much fun and sweat a lot from dancing, but I did not see any wear off in the mirror nor pictures. Since Ashley uses mineral make-up, I did not have to worry about washing my face late at night when I was exhausted from having too much fun, and of course, my skin did not have any bad reaction to the make-up. I highly recommend Ashley as your make-up artist because she is a TRUE PRO!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH ASHLEY!!!
I have known Ashley for years and have watched her transform bride after bride into the most beautiful version of themselves. So when I finally got engaged, I knew one of my first calls would be to Ashley Fierro to book my engagement session and Wedding Day….and OMG…I have never looked better. I seriously wish I could have her do my make up everyday and my husband agreed!
Her professionalism throughout the whole process was top notch. I loved the email check in’s with videos on what to expect at my make-up trial and on the big day. It really helped me feel prepared and knew I had one less thing to worry about. She also has a very calming spirit about her that was a breath of fresh air on my wedding day. The hour I spent with her getting ready was the much needed stress reliever right before I got into my dress.
At my make up trial, she was very detailed on uncovering exactly the look I was going for. I had a hard time articulating it, but after a great discussion, she was able to pull off the exact look I wanted. A bride should feel her best on her wedding day, and thanks to Ashley, I did.
We were referred to Ashley by our hair stylist and what a find! Ashley did my daughters trial makeup for her wedding and we knew she would be perfect! Kyra looked so natural and beautiful we were not worried about the actual Wedding Day at all. Besides being very professional Ashley was so easy to work with and made everyone in our group even more beautiful I would highly recommend her with out any hesitation!
Ashley is Absolutely Amazing! We were blessed by her professional presence last month when she so lovingly provided her services for our daughter, Erika’s wedding in Long Beach. Not only did Ashley drive through that horrendous Memorial Day traffic to be there early enough to do all our makeup, but she also stayed late into the evening, to show support for our family. She provided each of us with an incredible make-up session, and then proceeded to assist the photographer during the extremely intense photo session, which was partly done outdoors, shot against unusual street backgrounds, running up and down the stairs, helping to insure that the bridal shots were perfect. In my opinion, she is the ultimate professional when it comes to transforming each client into the most stunning creation possible. Her knowledge & experience, plus her winning personality & calming presence, work together, hand in hand, to make each individual feel relaxed & confident, almost as if they are the only person in the room. Ashley is a Blessing, and I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone based on the confidence that she will satisfy & please each prospective client’s needs!
Ashley created stunning looks for each of our shots and, more importantly, she made everyone feel really amazing and beautiful on set. She arrived early, stayed conscious of our really tight timelines, and stayed on top of touch ups the entire day. Ashley is an extremely talented artist combined with the professionalism of a business owner. We will be using her again and highly recommend her to anyone that’s looking for a true professional make-up artist.
