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!
Ashley is an absolute delight in every way – bubbly, funny, and savvy. She is also an enormously talented make-up artist with a great sense of using her immense skill to enhance her client’s personal style. I will 100% be looking to work with her again.
I hired Ashley Fierro Makeup for my Aug 10th wedding in San Diego. Ashley did an AMAZING job on my makeup!! Ashley was just so great to work with she even came to my parents house to do a make-up trial with super short notice before I flew home. On the day of my wedding, Ashley was very prompt and ready to go! She has such a sweet demeanor that all my girls just loved her!! I don’t wear much makeup on a daily basis so it was very important to me to look as natural as possible. She did such a great job on my makeup – did I say stunning?! She did a wonderful job on every single girl she worked on I mean even my best friend who gets her makeup done consistently was beyond impressed by Ashley. To top it off her prices are sooooooo good!!! If you are looking for a make-up artist that KNOWS what she’s doing on ALL types of skin color look no further you will not be disappointed in Ashley. I just hope I have another event in San Diego so I can have her do my make-up again!!
Ashley did my makeup for both my engagement pictures and wedding and she is AMAZING! I don’t typically wear much makeup so I was concerned I would look over-done but that was not the case at all. My makeup looked gorgeous and flawless and remained looking perfect all day. Ashley also did some of my bridesmaids’ makeup and all of their looks were a little different and perfect for each girl. I highly recommend Ashely and cannot wait for an excuse to get my makeup done by her again!
If you are looking for the perfect make up artist – look no further! Ashley is truly incredible. She did my make up for my wedding, and I couldn’t have been happier. I think all brides worry they won’t look or feel like themselves on their big day. Ashley did such an incredible job of making me feel like me, while having enough coverage to last the day and look great in photos. I loved the time we spent together – she is incredibly easy to talk to and totally helped to calm my nerves on the big day! I would recommend her highly!
Ashley is absolutely phenomenal!! I knew before I was even engaged that I wanted to use her for my wedding day. She has done my makeup as a bridesmaid multiple times and I have ALWAYS loved it!!! On my wedding day she executed EXACTLY what I wanted and was 100% consistent with what we discussed at my trial. On top of being an exceptional, professional MUA Ashley has the most welcoming, reassuring, and caring personality! She will work with you and make adjustments until you are confident and looking exactly how you imagined you would on your special day! Ashley is full of life and was such an amazing addition to my wedding day! Her organization, professionalism and talent are quickly noted. She is really something special! I highly recommend her to all brides looking for the best MUA out there!!!
It was a pleasure working with Ashley on my client’s wedding day. Her attention to detail, prompt emails, and thorough beauty schedules put the bride and myself at ease. I love when beauty artists take the time to schedule each girl’s time with hair and make-up. No one was rushed, everyone was on time and all looked radiant. It was a good start to the day. Looking forward to referring her team more. (Wedding Planner)

Jessica was the most beautiful bride and I had so many compliments about my makeup!! Still haven’t washed my eyes so I can keep on my little false eyelashes… obsessed! 🙂 THANK YOU!!!
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!
I had no idea the level of what I was getting when she showed up at my house- THE Ashley Fierro. Style, class, professionalism, beauty, business woman and such a talented artist. Ashley had no idea what she was getting with my loads of hair. Bottom line, she is so talented, so easy to work with, anticipates your needs, cared about what I wanted, not what she may have wanted to do to my hair and make-up, patient, funny. Throughout the photo shoot she was there to fix, put back into place, re-do, move things around. I highly recommend Ashley. Felt like a day at the spa.
