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!
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 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.
Okay ladies, look no further. Ashley is your first and last choice when it comes to makeup! We had her come help us with an event and I wish I had her do our wedding. She made my wife look like a model on vanity fair. Reasonable, organized, responsive and friendly. Simply the best in the business. Make your reservations early ladies….
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 was absolutely amazing before, during, and after the wedding!! I went through many makeup trials for my wedding and never felt myself after any of them until Ashley did my makeup. The one word I would use to describe Ashley is GENUINE and real! She is all about making you feel comfortable in your own skin and really listens to what you want…she never pushed to make me over how she wanted. The day of my wedding, she got through my whole wedding party with time to spare all while maintaining quality and class! She even did a few touch ups. I cannot thank her enough for making me feel so beautiful the day of my wedding!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Ashley on a photo shoot. I am a hairdresser that has worked on fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, and in the salon for 9 years. I have worked with many industry professionals, and Ashley gets 5 stars. She is on time, she is flexible to clients vision while offering expert advice, her color palette ranges from playful looks too elegant glamour, and her personality is a joy. I was impressed with her ability to take on even skintones to natural and glowing. Beautiful work Ashley looking forward to our next collaboration!
Ashley was a pleasure to work with prior to my engagement photo shoot. We decided we would treat the day as a wedding day trial as well. Great idea on her part! Before she lifted a makeup brush, we spent 10-15 minutes discussing her approach, the style I was going for, color options and details, etc. We went through several photos just to be sure she would execute what I was envisioning. Her attention to detail was perfect. We stopped a few times from start to finish, just to be sure I liked the direction she was going in. How thoughtful. I highly recommend Ashley Fierro Makeup for any future brides to be! I know I’ll be using her on my wedding day next year!
Ashley was the first vendor that I booked as I was positive that I wanted her! She had done my makeup for a friend’s wedding where I was the MOH and I loved how it turned out. Not only is she a phenomenal makeup artist, who listens to what you want, she is also someone you want to be with you while you are getting ready for the best day of your life. She makes you feel like you are her only client by remembering minor details from emails or the makeup trial. She asks questions I wouldn’t have thought of such as, what is the color palette for the bridesmaids, is it ok for them to wear a bright color, etc so that you don’t have to be the bad guy at your wedding. I loved working with Ashley and would highly recommend her to my closest friends and family.
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!!
