Heather is a bride's dream come true. From our very first phone call, Heather was dedicated to giving me a wedding makeup look that I loved. She listened to all my concerns about not wanting my makeup to feel like "too much" and wanting a natural look. At my trial, Heather took time to go over not only my makeup look, but also my skin and skin care to make sure she prepped my skin in the best way possible. She was so patient with me as I changed small details of my look over and over until it was perfect. The day of my wedding we had 12 makeup services and Heather broughout in the most amazing team to help her out. I don’t usually wear a ton of makeup, so I was concerned about my face feeling "heavy" but I could barely feel any difference and I absolutely loved the final look. Heather expertly matched my skin tone and gave me an elegant and classic bridal makeup look. If you're looking for someone to make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself, look no further.

After years of doing my makeup the same way, I was in need of a refresh. Heather taught me new techniques and recommended great products to give me a youthful look. I loved how Heather recommended both high end and more cost effective products while incorporating makeup I already had in my collection. She is such a pleasure to work with! If you are stuck in a makeup rut, Heather will help you achieve your best look.

Lauren

I had the pleasure of working with Heather on my wedding day and she was exceptional! Heather is so kind, so sweet, she’s professional, she’s organized, and she’s amazing at what she does! I knew from my trial with Heather that she was the perfect fit for my wedding day! Heather did mine and my families (mom and two sisters) and we were all obsessed! Our makeup looked amazing from the second we left her chair until the end of the night. We all felt so beautiful! I highly recommend working with Heather! I look forward to working with her again on my next big event!

Taryn

I had never had never had my makeup done by anyone other than myself. I was nervous at first but Heather was amazing… talking me through her steps to make me feel comfortable at all times. I had an incredibly awesome experience. I was so overwhelmed with happiness when I looked at myself after she finished my makeup and hair for my wedding day! I have never received so many compliments on my makeup. I couldn’t believe the way I looked on my wedding day! I had tears of happiness in my eyes when I looked in the mirror. There are no words to describe how thankful I am that our paths crossed … the wedding pictures I have seen so far are spectacular! I absolutely love them! I can not wait to see the professional photographers pictures. I’m looking forward to having some lessons. Thank you Heather you’re amazing!

Lori

Heather was an absolute joy to work with. Everything from the initial phone call, trial, to my actual wedding day was seamless and easy. My wedding hair was PERFECT. I loved the natural look she gave me, and even the touch up kit for the remainder of the evening.My entire look stayed intact. My mom and bridesmaids looked great as well! Would highly recommend! 

Jamie

Heather was the makeup artist for my wedding, and I cannot recommend her enough! She was a true pleasure to work with, and I absolutely love how I looked on my wedding day. She also made my two bridesmaids and my mom truly shine. Heather has a real talent for accentuating your best features without making you look like you're wearing a ton of makeup. It was important to me to look like myself on my wedding day, and Heather's makeup was natural, gorgeous, and held up all day and night. Not only was Heather amazing on the wedding day - she came to my hotel room with her chair and kit - but she even went above and beyond between my trial and the wedding day. I have a sunscreen allergy, and she worked with me to find something that we could use under the makeup that wouldn't bother my skin but would ensure I was protected through my photos and ceremony. If you are contemplating booking Heather for her makeup services, do not hesitate!

Melissa

Heather prepped me for my branding photoshoot. I don’t usually wear much makeup so I was nervous about it. Thanks to Heather my photos look lovely and natural. She also stayed on the shoot to be sure my hair looked great. She is a pro!

Crystal

"I needed new head shots for LinkedIn, and work web bio, ect. The photographer recommended professional makeup and it really makes a difference for these photos that you will be using for a few years! I've worked with makeup artists (for TV hosting) and sometimes you get a look that is aging or too "done". Heather goes for "you, only better." She stopped a few times to show me how it was progressing so I could tweak as needed to my preferences (I like a particular shade of lip color and am a sucker for extra lashes!). I really like that Heather checked in and listened to me. She is a real pro and also made it fun!"

Suzanne

I am so happy I chose Heather for my engagement photoshoot makeup. I am a very picky person and I usually don't wear make-up so I was a little scared to get my makeup done. Any fear I had quickly went away as Heather started working her magic. She is a true artist that knows how to bring out a person's beauty. She worked with my inspiration photos, but ultimately created a look specifically for my features and my complexion. She is well versed in color-theory and took the time to match colors perfectly to me as an individual. She is so dedicated that she even took time away from her commitment after my makeup session to perfect my look. I appreciated that so much as her attention to every detail is what made everything so perfect. I could not be happier with how my makeup turned out and recommend Heather to anybody and everybody. She is truly a joy and I am so grateful I found her. If you are thinking of booking Heather then please let this be your sign to do so!

Ashley

Heather did a fantastic job doing hair and makeup for my wedding. She was very communicative, prompt, friendly, and worked with me to understand what I was looking for. She did a great job creating a natural wedding look and the individual lashes she placed were so comfortable. She also gave me a touch up kit for the rest of the night. She even touched up my natural curls - it's rare to have someone help you rock your naturally curly hair! Heather contracts with hair artists for bigger hair projects and I felt complete trust that she only works with people who are dependable and talented like she is. I would highly recommend Heather!

Sarah

I was in need of some updated head shots and knew the importance of getting make-up professionally done in order to make the most of the time and investment for pictures. It was actually relaxing and Heather really listened to the look I was going for and delivered! I am so pleased with how my make-up turned out and my head shots too! Look forward to working with her again!"

Michele

Heather - Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your make-up artistry made me look and feel so flawless. I received so many compliments about it. I appreciate you traveling to L.A to be part of my special day. Most importantly, thank you for also taking the time to make my mother, sisters, and bridesmaids feel their best too. That was so important to me. You are so talented and I’m so grateful that I trusted and chose you out of all these make up artists in CA to make me feel beautiful. Side note - I followed your recommendation and chose the pearl earrings to complete my look and it was perfect! You’re just great overall!

Fatima

I have been fortunate enough to have Heather do my makeup on a few different occasions, but this latest time for my wedding day. From start to finish of working with her she has been so organized and professional. She always made me feel heard and was receptive to the exact look I was going for. Heather is truly so talented at what she does and made my bridesmaids, my mom + MIL, and myself feel so confident and beautiful for the wedding. She goes above and beyond and even left me with a touch up kit and a lipstick she knew I loved and had been searching for. I can’t wait to use Heather for any future events!

Kelly

Heather was retained to apply makeup to six individuals in preparation for photos taken for our business website. Heather is a caring professional and carefully listened to each person's desires. The end result was outstanding. We highly recommend Heather for any of your makeup needs.

Nancy

My employer recently hired Heather to do touch-up make-up for company photos. In the few minutes I got to spend with her I could tell she just "got me". So I met with her later that week for a private makeup lesson at her home. I am not a makeup person - I'm active and very athletic and use enough to cover my dark circles, sun damage, etc. Of course I have been to Ulta, Macy's, different makeup counters, etc. and learned things along the way. But Heather's makeup lesson was so informative, interactive, and interesting! She showed me techniques, colors and palates, great products I would never have considered, and addressed all my concerns. We went shopping in my makeup bag and chose existing items I'll continue using, and tossed the items that were the wrong color, outdated, stuff that I never use anyway. Suffice it to say the next day, and since then, my daily makeup has looked amazing. She also ordered some items for me that are perfectly matched to my skin tone - I love that kind of personalized, concierge-type of service and fantastic follow-up. I feel like I finally know the right colors and makeup for me, and how to apply it so that I look like me - only (waaay!) better. Heather - your expertise and professionalism are so appreciated!

Michel

Heather did my bridal makeup for my wedding, along with the makeup for my mother, sister (MoH), and mother in law. She matched the color palette of the wedding perfectly while enhancing everyone’s natural beauty. Heather is SO knowledgeable about all things makeup and skincare—she even helped me find the perfect skincare products prior to the wedding (after my makeup trial) to help make my skin look the best for my big day. She is the best in the business, charges reasonable prices, has an open line of communication with the bride (so helpful for out of town brides!), and is such a pleasure to work with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Danielle

For my wedding makeup, I wanted glamorous but still natural looking and Heather definitely delivered. She also did a wonderful job listening to my Mom and bridesmaids about their needs and what they wanted while making everyone look cohesive. Heather is kind, reliable, and has her clients’ best interests in mind. She gave me lots of recommendations to help me look and feel my best on my wedding day. She also gave me a touch up kit. I couldn’t have asked for a better makeup artist on my big day.

Carolyn

I have used Heather in different occasions and every single time, she has exceeded my expectations. Heather is a genuine person, who very obviously loves what she does. She’s extremely responsive, very communicative and prompt. The first time I used her it was so she could teach me how to put on makeup. I was a bit hesitant at first but she showed me how to put on makeup that looks so natural. I have also used her for a Bollywood theme event, for my sister’s wedding (she did the bride’s and bridesmaids’ makeup that day- and everyone looked beautiful especially my sister the bride- sheer perfection!), and for a family photo shoot. Every time Heather has made me feel so comfortable and the makeup was gorgeous. I have recommended Heather to others already and they have loved her too.

Rocio

Heather did my makeup for my wedding and it was the best experience, from the first time I reached out through the big day. Heather always responded so quickly to my emails and made the whole experience easy and stress free. Heather is a true artist and takes her craft seriously - she is so good and I love the thought she put into her work! I felt beautiful at my wedding and one of my 4 year old guests even said "she was so beautiful, I couldn't look at her!" Thank you, Heather!

Erin

I am so glad that I booked Heather to do makeup for my wedding party! Throughout the entire process, from initial consultation, trial and actual wedding day, she has been professional, communicative and prompt! Our make up stayed on all night and our eyebrows were AMAZING! She knew exactly what colors worked best for each woman. Thank you Heather for helping me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day!

Kelly

Heather!! I absolutely loved it and received so many compliments on my hair and makeup! Please tell Tiffany too! Candid photos are coming in slowly. I will send official ones when I can. Please put me down as an absolute endorser of your amazing work! Thank you a hundred times!!!

Tiffany

Heather did the makeup for myself, my bridesmaids, and my mom for my wedding. We cannot thank her enough for her wonderful work! Everyone looked absolutely stunning, and she did exactly what we asked for. I rarely wear makeup so I wanted a very natural look, and she pulled it off perfectly! My makeup lasted all night, and I didn’t even have to touch it up once! I would recommend her to everyone! She does great work, and is just the nicest!

Miranda

Heather is amazing! Thoughtful, kind, thorough and talented—and truly amazing to help work through logistics with a big wedding group! I absolutely loved working with her!

Melissa

I hired Heather to do my makeup for my full day branding photoshoot. Heather's process from start to finish is professional and seamless. She contacted me in advance to make sure she knew exactly what look I wanted to achieve. Heather was on site and ready to go ahead of schedule on the day of my shoot. She well exceeded my expectations, and took the vision I had for my look to the next level. Everyone I worked with and saw that day complimented my makeup and wanted Heather's contact info.The makeup looks perfect in my photos. I couldn't be happier. I Highly recommend Heather. She is a talented makeup artist and a consummate professional.

Roni

There are not words great enough to express how wonderful and professional Heather is. I got married in July and Heather did my mother in law's, my mother's, and my make up. We all agreed that we never felt/looked more beautiful in our lives. Heather knew exactly how to emphasize our best features while giving us a soft glam look with high quality products. Heather was one of my kindest vendors and got along with the whole bridal party so well, and she really made me feel special on my big day. She also brought along an amazing team of hair stylists who took care of everyone's hair. From everything from planning to the actual day Heather was so sweet and accommodated every single need I had. My day wouldn't have been as special as it was without Heather!

Tarah

I hired Heather to do my bridesmaids' and my makeup for my wedding back in June and I'm so glad that I did! Heather arrived early and quickly found the best lighting at our venue. Everyone, including myself, felt so beautiful when Heather was finished and we were ready with time to spare! I especially appreciated the little touch-up bag that Heather created so that I could reapply my lipstick and dab any tear trickles that happened throughout the day! Thank you Heather for helping to make my wedding day stress-free and memorable!

Nancy

Heather is an amazing makeup artist. She arranged for a hair stylist for my wedding as well who also did amazing work. They did makeup and hair for myself, bridesmaids, mom, and mother -in-law. Everyone looked great and natural. Will definitely use her for future events. Highly recommend. Thank you so much for being part of our special day!

Rebecca

Heather is the absolute best! She patiently and lovingly did 2 pre-wedding makeups (one for my engagement party) and nailed it. She listened and achieved the flawless natural look I wanted. Heather also scouted and organized hair trials and contracts (according to my hair and style). This facilitated the whole process! On my wedding day, she was punctual, calming, professional, and supportive of me and my wedding party.
Heather is more than just a makeup professional, she truly is an artist. She painted and highlighted my face perfectly. Her skin-tone matching was on point and all of my guests complimented my look. The makeup looked fresh all night! Heather has been an absolute pleasure to work with, she is incredibly professional and maintains a human/personable touch. I loved her caring attitude and personalized letters throughout our time together.

I highly recommend Heather and her team and will ask her to do my makeup for future events.

Alexandra

Thank you, Heather! We had an amazing session before my shoot! I really appreciate everything. My makeup was perfect and the hair too. Loved it so much I took more of my own pics after the shoot and I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the day. xoxo!

Lisa

Heather's makeup artistry on my wedding day was absolutely phenomenal! She not only worked her magic on me, but also on my mom and my sister, all of us with very different styles and preferences. Heather's talent truly shone through as she created three unique and stunning looks that left us all feeling like the best versions of ourselves. Heather's attention to detail and ability to enhance our natural features was remarkable. I received numerous compliments, both in person and from the photos, with people commenting how flawless, natural, and radiant my makeup looked. A few months after my wedding, I had the pleasure of returning to Heather for a makeup tutorial. The experience was absolutely fantastic! Heather patiently taught me various techniques and shared valuable tips that have transformed my daily makeup routine. Heather's passion for her craft, her professionalism, and her warm personality make her great to work with. I am very grateful for her role in making my wedding day so special and for elevating my everyday makeup routine. I wholeheartedly recommend her!

Rebecca

Heather was so professional, responsive, and kind. She provided amazing service to me and my bridal party! From start to finish, working with Heather was great and she made the process flow with such ease because she was so prepared from the beginning. My make up fit my look perfectly, it lasted through the whole night, and she left me with a little kit for touch ups if need be too. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone in need of beauty services!

Victoria

Heather Arnold is a gift to work with. We planned our wedding in 4 months and hair and makeup was the last vendor that I booked. I vetted over 20 artists before landing on Heather. She accommodated 12 wedding guests with 5 different artists and made revision after revision after revision for me as I had people add services and change services. Heather is incredibly professional, easy going but straightforward and a pleasure to have with me on my wedding day for the hour I got to spend with her. She made me feel special, like a friend, but not too intrusive or overbearing. Her service was excellent. My makeup was flawless and she gave me touch up materials for as the night went on. My lashes were perfect all night and never bothered me. She uses great products and everything was very clean and she cleaned everything between uses. Heather, thank you for your exceptional professionalism and service. I loved every moment of getting my makeup done without stress or worry. You are truly a gift and a gem to your industry. Ladies, book with Heather Arnold! I promise, you will be SO happy you did!

Lauren

Heather is great! She perfectly executed my makeup vision for both my engagement shoot & wedding-- I changed my vision close to my wedding, also, and she had no problem taking my ideas into account and executing them flawlessly. I went for a pink-toned natural but bronzy look with big Hollywood waves. I felt that my makeup looked super natural; I looked like me but elevated, which was why I was attracted to her makeup style in the first place. I was really scared about the makeup aspect during the wedding planning process initially, because I'm a bit particular about beauty and feel unlike myself with heavy makeup. To assemble the beauty team, Heather allowed me to choose from other hair and makeup artists she knew and suggested the proper # of artists in order to get everything done quickly and efficiently. The beauty team was for my wedding party of 4 women plus my mom's hair and makeup-- the schedule was really reasonable (started around 8am for a 4pm ceremony), was organized far in advance of my wedding day, and we were all finished with our services earlier than planned on the actual wedding day. It set the stage for my wedding day to be super stress-free, allowing for the ceremony to be on-time, which was my main concern of the day. My wedding party also was happy with their hair and makeup and the artists were receptive to any small adjustments that they asked for, and same for Heather with my own makeup. Overall, I just felt very taken care of by Heather because she was super organized and also talented at makeup! I wouldn't have changed anything about my appearance on the day of or about the beauty team she assembled :) I'd also note that my makeup stayed perfect all the way until I went to bed, even though it was a hot and humid day.

Michelle

I feel so grateful that Heather was a part of my wedding day. Heather very much contributed to the magic! She has such a pure, positive energy and a level of professionalism that is unmatched. The entire experience was relaxing and enjoyable. True story: I cried when I looked in the mirror because I looked naturally BEAUTIFUL - she exceeded my expectations. Heather is hands-down the most talented makeup artist if you want an elevated natural look that belongs in Hollywood.

Tracy

Heather and her team were absolutely amazing! We got married on 10/28/2023 and she did 12 girls, including me the bride, makeup so beautifully. Could not recommend her any more.

Ali

If I could give Heather a higher rating, I would! She was absolutely wonderful to work with. Not only was she kind and accommodating, but I absolutely loved my makeup and hair. I have had my makeup professionally done many times, but this is the first time ever that I loved it. She listened to my request for a more natural look and knew what colors would look the best on my skin tone.

I received so many compliments after my trial and on my wedding day. I truly felt so beautiful and my makeup lasted all day and night. She even gave my MOH a touch-up kit to use on me as the night went on. Heather is the best in the game, I could not recommend her more!

Ashlee

Heather and her team did our make up and hair for my daughter’s bat mitzvah. She was so professional, arrived on time with everything needed. She was very personable and had great suggestions. The end result was beautiful!! We received lots of compliments. I definitely recommend her and will be calling her for our next event! Thank you so much Heather.

Lizzy

Heather did my makeup for two days of wedding festivities!! Makeup lasted for 18+ hours each day, and through tons of sweating and dancing, and I felt beautiful the whole time!! She matched skin tones for all my bridesmaids, and everyone was very happy with their makeup! Heather is so sweet and absolutely dedicated to her work, and brought a great team with Nancy and Brittney! Would 100% recommend to any brides :)

Rachel

Heather and her team are simply the BEST!!!! I was sooo grateful to have such a professional, compassionate, and talented team making me and my wedding party look and feel beautiful for the big day. Heather made me feel so cared for and added so many personal touches along the way, from the first discovery call through post-wedding, and especially on the big day itself.

Here are some key ways Heather & her team were outstanding:
1. Getting to know you & your needs.
2. A thoughtful, personalized make-up trial to help you make decisions about your look.
3. Organization and punctuality - Heather and her team were SO organized.
4. TOP NOTCH ON THE BIG DAY!! 

I would go to Heather and her team again in a heartbeat, and can't wait for another excuse to work with them in the future. They are so fun and amazing at what they do!!! <3

Kristyn

Oh my gosh. Heather and her team are AMAZING!!!! From the trial to the wedding day Heather was friendly, on top of things and communicative. Trial day I informed Heather that I really wanted a natural glow and nothing too heavy which is exactly what she did. I had gone to three other trials and apparently the style now is to layer so much heavy makeup on where you don't even feel or look like yourself anymore. I felt so relieved with I finally found Heather who actually listened to my requests and executed it beautifully. Day of the wedding her Team arrives early (yay!) and gets started on my girls. Every single one of them felt beautiful and natural, which is a huge compliment considering all my girls have different styles. I was so impressed that all Hair and Makeup was done ON TIME with no stress or anxiety. Heather personally made sure I felt at ease and helped calm down my anxiety with her conversations and calm demeanor. I had no idea how big this was, but her entire Team made each and every one of my Bridal party and family members feel comfortable. It is already such a stressful day and for her to help take away some stress was a major relief.

Melinda

I discovered Heather through my husband’s sister as she did her wedding makeup the year before ours! Heather and her team were absolutely amazing!! She is so helpful and communicative, which can be helpful during the wedding planning process, which of course can be stressful! On the day of the wedding, she was early to the venue to set up and did an incredible job on my makeup and my bridesmaids! Everyone looked beautiful but still felt like themselves! I would 10000% recommend Heather to anyone and everyone!

Hannah

Heather was so amazing! She did my bridal make up and my bridesmaids make up as well. I wanted a more natural look but also wanted to look glam enough for pictures and she captured exactly what I wanted. Definitely recommend for all future brides!
