The Best 11 Makeup Artists In Houston

The Best 5 Makeup Artists In Houston Homepage

Our Criteria 

Flexibility: Makeup Artists should be flexible because sometimes clients do not want to budge on how they would like to look. So flexibility is needed to work to meet the demands of their clients and accomplish the desired results. 
Adaptability: We believe adaptability is essential because a good makeup artist continuously learns new techniques to keep up with trends and is passionate about their work. 
Efficiency: Most clients often are in a time crunch. So we looked for makeup artists that are good with deadlines and remain in control of the situation to keep the client calm and stress-free.
Interpersonal Skills: A great makeup artist should have a welcoming personality and also have mastered the art of listening to their client’s likes and dislikes. In addition, they should be able to improve their customers’ natural facial features using their preferences.

While we noted that Beloved and Makeup and Hair specializes in wedding beauty, they also provide limited standard airbrush makeup services. 

In our interactions with Beloved Makeup and Hair, we appreciated how every staff member we spoke with was friendly and easy to coordinate with.

For instance, one customer we spoke with raved about a modern 70s makeup look Lisa did for their 70s disco event. They claimed it was one of their favorite makeup experiences. 

During our observations of Lisa and her clients, Lisa always showed up promptly to adhere to her clients’ timelines—even finishing early. 

The professionalism she demonstrated with her clients was admirable. We liked how she listened to her client’s opinions about their eye makeup. 

Moreover, she utilized excellent techniques to bring out her client’s eye shape in an artistic yet natural way. 

Furthermore, we witnessed Lisa’s patience as she tweaked her client’s overall makeup look until her client was pleased. 

By the way, Lisa does charge an additional fee for various services such as lashes or airbrush applications.
