Aradia was just amazing the day of my sons wedding, she did both my daughters make up and my make up just beautifully. she is an expert at highlighting your features while covering up all of the imperfections. she also did my daughters wedding and we will always use Aradia for all special events.
Deborah, Wedding: 8/26/2012 - WeddingWire.com
From the minute I first spoke to Aradia on the phone I knew she was the makeup artist for me. She was the sweetest and most professional vendor I had talked through during the planning of my wedding. Within a few minutes I had agreed to a trial run, and she set up a very organized and proficient schedule for the day of my wedding. You wouldn’t think that your makeup artist would be the one to make your big day a success, but Aradia took so much weight off my shoulders with her planning expertise alone... If you are woman who appreciates quality beauty and true expertise, then I suggest you book Aradia and Kei as soon as possible. Every bride deserves to feel the way these women made me feel. I am so thankful I got in contact with them, because I don’t think my big day would have been as wonderful had I chosen anyone else. Thank you Aradia and Kei!

Thank you so much for everything, You and Kei made a great job and I really loved your work. I was so great meeting you, you two are so nice and made me really feel beautiful.
My makeup held really good all day and my skin was not shinning at all.

Simply the best experience I ever had with an make up artist, company and team! Aradia was so kind, flexible and understandable, worked with me even on a short notice. I loved that she actually picked up the phone and called me the same day (which is sooo rare these days) I expressed interest on her site. But I loved that she actually seemed to CARE about my special wedding day, paid attention to what I wanted, my needs and sent me the best artist or the one I needed, Aimee!! Thank you so much for making it so unique!! I looked precious, my make up lasted all day/night even on a rainy beach day wedding LOL!! I looked so stunning at midnight I still didn't want to wash my face, LOL!! Love them and can't wait to use them again or have any excuse to look natural yet flawless!!
Ivette, Wedding: 4/21/2012 - WeddingWire.com
Thank you so much to Aradia and Kei! They are really an amazing team! Everyone of my girls looked absolutely amazing. I couldn’t have picked better people to do our hair and makeup for my wedding! They were both so GREAT! Without doing any kind of trial before hand together they were able to create a look for me that was exactly what I had envisioned for myself. It was an excellent experience from start to finish and myself and my bridal party were so happy with how everything turned out. Thanks for everything!!!!!

Dear Aradia and Kei, I wanted to thank you so much for the AMAZING job you both did with me and my ladies last weekend. I felt absolutely amazing throughout the whole night! I will most definitely recommend you to everyone I know and call you for my hair/makeup needs =) Many thanks and best regards,

After getting discouraged by the salon/spa at my wedding venue, I decided to contact an outside vendor two weeks prior to my wedding. Aradia was the first and only vendor I contacted based upon online reviews. As luck would have it she was available for my Friday wedding. She put me at ease the first moment we spoke. She was very responsive in answering my phone calls and emails, outlined all proposed services and prices up front and left me with no suprises. Her associate Kei did a great job on my hair as well as the hair of my entire bridal party. I would definitely recommend Aradia and Kei without question.

Hi Aradia, I just got back from my honeymoon so only now got to my emails. I wanted to thank you so very much for everything! I turned out to be a pretty hot bride :) thanks to you! Everything was great and everyone loved their makeup and hair. Thank you again and if you ever need me to talk to any future brides about the wonderful work you do I'm all for it! Also, I haven't gotten the pictures yet but when I do let me know if you want me to email you some of the hair and makeup. Thanks
I was won over by Aradia during my first phone call with her. She was incrediblye sweet, great warm personality and took her time to understand to get to know me and get a feel for what I was looking for. During my engagement, I was shopping around for other make-up artists and found her pricing to be on-par with other professional make-up artists but what trully won me over was her warm personality, professionalism and ultimately her work is amazing!
I first met Aradia and Kie during my trial run (which I also took the opportunity to do my engagement photo shoot) and WOW!!!! the make-up and hair was incredible.... I felt beautiful and the pictures looked amazing. During the time leading up to my wedding, Aradia would keep in touch by sending me useful beauty tip reminders and was always very responsive via email or phone. 6 months later we met again for my wedding were she did the make-up and Kie did the hair for my 3 bridesmaids, myself and both my mom and my mother in law. The team was on-time, incredibly attentive and fun! My mother in-law was very apprehensive to get her make-up done but Aradia was able to calm her down and gave her the exact look she wanted.... of course, my mother in law was beaming of joy and looked beautiful. All the bridesmaids and my mom were incredibly happy and we all looked amazing. Having the right chemistry with the make-up/hair team is incredibly important and I highly recommend Aradia to future brides.

Aradia and hair stylist Kei did my hair and makeup for my engagement session and wedding day. Initially, I was worried that the look was "too much" but she reassured me that it was necessary for the phots. And she was right. My engagement photos were the most beautiful I've ever taken and I'll treasure them forever. On wedding day, Kei and Aradia worked hard to make my "old hollwood glamour" vision come to life. They also made my mother, sisters, and neice look natural and amazing. My wedding photos are lovely and I looked like the bride that I wanted to be. I should add that it was a treat to have hair and makeup professionals come to my house and to help me prepare in comfort. It was truly a pleasure to work with this team.
Nadine, 2/18/2012 - WeddingWire.com
Aradia is AMAZING to work with!!!! She is so accommodating and so very talented. I cant thank her enough. She was always available and always responded to emails and calls rather quickly. I had some issues with my hair stylist and she had many recommendations and helped me find a great stylist last minute. She also sends out bridal tips frequently via email with tips on how to get ready for the big day. Right before my wedding day she sent out such a great to do list that there is no way I could have forgotten a thing. On my wedding day there were so many people coming in and out of the bridal suite and she was so flexible and worked around all the chaos with out it bothering her one bit! I got compliments on my make up all night and she made my skin look flawless. I couldn't thank Aradia enough.... I highly recommend her services.
Tami, 2/11/2012 - WeddingWire.com
Aradia and Kei are the best when it comes to hair and make-up. They are the sweetest ladies to work with, great professionalism, on time, and super flexible. I could not have made a better choice! Words can’t explain how amazing my mother, sister (maid of honor) and one of my bridesmaids looked after hair and make-up was ready. My husband could not stop telling me how amazing I looked during the wedding ceremony and the rest of the night. These ladies are amazing artist and I am so happy that they were able to be there for me on my special day! Thank you so much ladies for making me look gorgeous everyone told me how amazing my hair and make- up looked. Not only was it all amazing but it lasted the whole night. I would definitely recommend them to any bride that wants to look gorgeous with flawless make-up the whole night. Once again thank you so much! I will definitely recommend you to all of my cousins and friends that will be getting married soon and my sister can’t wait until she is ready to get married too.
Malani, 2/11/2012 - WeddingWire.com
After my wedding, there are only a few individuals that I would recommend someone using one. Aradia and Kei are one of them. I would recommend them a million times again. They are positively AMAZING!!!!!! From the first time I spoke with Aradia, I knew that she was special. Her quick response to my phone call, the detailed questions she asked and her professionalism was something I had not experienced often while planning my wedding. My trial run went fabulously-she and Kei were punctual, professional, pleasant and extremely talented. I have two friends that are engaged and I have emphatically encouraged them to use Aradia and Kei. The day of your wedding can be stressful and these two are an absolute pleasure to have as part of your day. They worked on 9 people in my wedding and they had multiple personalities to contend with. Aradia and Kei handled every situation gracefully and, most importantly, made everyone look absolutely beautiful. I love these two and am so happy they were part of my wedding experience. I feel so fortunate to have worked with them. They get an A+++ in my book.

I would like to thank Aradia and Kei so much for doing my make-up and hair for my wedding. I was hesitant about choosing a hair stylist and make-up artist because I am from Missouri and was getting married in Florida so I had no idea who there was or what they were like. Needless to say, I was definitely not disappointed by choosing Aradia and Kei. They were awesome! The made me and my bridesmaids look absolutely stunning for my beach wedding. I sent the pictures of what I wanted beforehand and little did I know they would make us look even better than the pictures. I would highly recommend them to anybody else doing a destination wedding in Florida. They will not let you down and were a joy to work with!
Lauren, 10/10/2011 - WeddingWire.com
"Thank you for the fantastic job doing the makeup and hair - everyone said it looked amazing and that I looked beautiful! It lasted through the reception and still looked fresh. Our wedding was super fun and everyone had a great time. If my sister gets married in South Florida, she will definitely be contacting you :). I believe that makeup and hair styling should be used to enhance the natural beauty of a bride, but should not be overwhelming. I was able to tell the Bridal Makeovers team what I wanted in terms of my look. I was very confident that they would do a good job from the trial run, which both Aradia and Jacquie did. Thank you for making me look great on my special day!"
I was truly blessed, I received so much more than just my wedding makeup! I was a destination bride. I live in Atlanta, but I got married in South Beach in June and I was concerned about not being familiar with the local businesses. Fortunately I found Aradia of Bridal Makeovers and I could not be happier with all of her work. She is more than competent, she is full of amazing energy and artistic ideas. Aradia is every bit the professional; there is no one I would rather have had do my makeup for my special day. She has a fantastic rapport with many vendors in the South Florida area. I trusted her immediately to not only to help me figure out what I wanted for my dream look, but also to make things happen. Aradia's creativity, professionalism and vision were paramount in making me feel and look beautiful on my destination wedding. THANK YOU!!!
Amber, Atlanta, 8/24/2011
Thank you so much for making me look beautiful on my wedding day. Bridal makeovers by Aradia is a brides dream come true. A professional, on time, friendly, affordable, and dedicated service for a bride who wants to look her best. I am so happy I found this service to do my make up for me on my wedding. I love the fact that you make everything so simple and worry free, with follow up emails and portfolios of ideas and tips to look your best on the wedding day. My hair and makeup lasted all through the night and I felt beautiful. Thank you again and I will definitely recommend this service!

I can’t thank enough Aradia and Kei for their beautiful work on my beach wedding. I sent them pictures of how I wanted my makeup and hair to look but I did not imagine I was going to look even prettier. They are true artists. They did my mom’s makeup and hair as well and I’ve never seen her looking more beautiful. It was a very hot day, but our makeup and hair stayed perfect all night long. If you´re still thinking if you should spend money on professional hair and makeup on your wedding, I must tell that Bridal Makeovers´ work is worth every penny and it will be something you´ll treasure forever in your pictures.
Ana , 7/30/2011 - WeddingWire.com
Thank you for making me a beautiful bride... I truly felt beautiful both days and looked like a bride. My bridesmaid loved your work and she told me she is booking you for her wedding. I should be seeing you then for her wedding. Thanks for putting my picture in your bridal gallery page... I actually feel honored. Once again thank you!
5 stars all the way! Aradia and Kei were EXCEPTIONAL! If you are looking for hair and makeup artists, look no further. They did wedding hair and makeup for myself, my bridesmaids, my mother, my mother in law, flower girl, and junior bridesmaids. Everyone loved the results and they all looked gorgeous (and age-appropriate). Before meeting with Aradia and Kei, I did two makeup trials with other so-called "artists" and I was disappointed. My wedding planner recommended Aradia and Kei so I decided to meet with them. From the first minute of my trial, I knew they were true professionals and artists. Aradia talked with me for about 30 minutes before even applying any makeup. We went through pictures of my previous trials, and she immediately pointed out problems with the other looks. Whereas other makeup specialists are just girls that like to apply makeup, Aradia is an artist. She examined my face and applied the makeup based on MY features. Kei Pucci, the hair artist, was just as amazing. I gave her complete creative freedom with my updo and she created something so beautiful, I could have never imagined it! After our ceremony, she took my hair down and gave me sexy curls for the reception, very glamorous! In addition to being amazing artists, Aradia and Kei were fun to work with. They're very down to earth and friendly. Everyone in my bridal party adored them, so much that we're already scheduling another hair/makeup session with them for our next big event. The crazy thing is they are reasonably priced too, especially compared to the competition.
Stephanie, 4/9/2011 - WeddingWire.com
Aradia did an amazing job on my make-up for my wedding day. Jackie also did an amazing job on my hair. The whole process was so much fun and they made me feel so special and beautiful. Many people who have seen my wedding pictures have made specific comments on how great my hair and make-up looked. Thank you so much Aradia and Jackie.
Dorianne, 3/4/2011 - WeddingWire.com
Wow! Where do I even begin about Aradia and Jackie? My family and I were so impressed by their work - they were one of the best vendors we worked with on our big day by far! First off, they did our hair and make-up absolutely beautifully! Aradia did such an amazing job with the makeup that my sister even allowed her to do her makeup at the last minute - my sister who in her over 30 years of life has only worn makeup one other day in her life - her wedding day! I planned my wedding from New York so I was extremely nervous about my hair since I wasn't able to do a trial run. My hair was breath-taking though. I got so many compliments. It stayed the whole night and it looked amazing! My make-up was also spectacular - my now-husband was blown away when he saw me! I have never had my makeup done so beautifully and everything stayed in place the entire night - I didn't even have to touch up anything except my lip gloss! The biggest thing I have to appreciate is their flexibility. My dad actually ended up in the ER on my wedding day and the whole wedding was pushed back an hour. My mom almost didn't make the wedding but when she finally arrived they did her up quickly and amazingly beautiful! They actually stayed and waited for her to arrive so they could also make my mom look beautiful on my big day. I can't thank them enough for this! I will recommend Aradia a million times over! I can't even express how much I appreciated everything she did and all of her flexibility, but most importantly,
how beautiful she and Jackie made all of my girls and I look on the big day!

Bridal Makerovers by Aradia was the best decision my daughter made when chosing a make-up artist. Aradia did her make-up for the bridal shower, engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner and of course on the BIG DAY! We could not have been any happier. All 8 bridesmaids as well and my mom and sister were also very pleased. Aradia we will be calling you again for my son's wedding :)

Aradia and the hairstylist, Kei Pucci, were absolutely great during our wedding. From the beginning, Aradia and Kei were extremely responsive, and were extremely accommodating during the trials and the wedding day. Our wedding required two different hairstyles and makeup looks for me due to two ceremonies, and we hired both Aradia and Kei to do the hair and makeup for both my sisters and my mom. They stayed the whole day and listened to all our requests. I highly recommend them.
Kalpana, 11/13/2010 - WeddingWire.com
It was a pleasure having Aradia as my make-up artist on my wedding day! She knew exactly what I wanted!
lala, 10/16/2010 - WeddingWire.com
The session was incredible, the make up was marvelous, no touch up needed, no shine, it was perfect. We also did a water splashing and wetting and the everything including the mascara held up amazing. You did a great job! Thank you!
Mary S, 8/24/2010
Dear Aradia, thank you for making me look great that day! I cant wait for the big day! To be honest with you, I think that you have been one of the best vendors I have worked with throughout this whole wedding process. From the beginning, you were very informative and the communication between us is great, you usually respond to me right away or the same day, I couldn't ask for anything better! And I absolutely love the fact that you really take the time to clarify and explain things in detail, even if it is through email. You make me feel as if I am a VIP on your list, and for that I truly appreciate!
Naomi D, 6/21/2010
Hey Aradia, Thank you soo much for your help and support . You were amazing! I sincerely felt like you pushed above and beyond the envelope just to get us on the same page. Your patience was spectacular!
It was great meeting you and Jackie last night and yes you're right I have one less thing to worry about. You are so professional! You knew exactly the colors and style of make-up for me. By the way, I loved the color of that base. It blended so nicely. Can you tell me the name of the color? I believe you said it was by Dior. You are so right that it's all in the preparation. Just like painting a wall the prep time takes longer than the actual painting, but once you know what to do the rest is a snap. By the way I loved the way you covered the spots on the chest. I was thinking WOW I want it to look like this all the time!
You truly are a REAL make-up artist and it shows in your work and when I saw your show up with the suitcase I knew you had every color under the sun. I also liked when I showed you pictures that you immediately said you that's nice but for your eyes we'd have to do it a little differently. Sometime make-up artist and hair dresser just give everyone the featured look whether it looks good on them or not, so it's important to do the right look for them.
I'm looking forward to May 15 so I think we agreed on 3P to be ready for 5:30 photos. Just one thing I forgot to ask. After I do the photos on the beach will you be there for any re-touching or will I only need
to retouch the lipstick?
By the way tell Jackie my hair stayed all night and even when I took it out I still had curls! Amazing...my hair never stays.
Aradia and her hairstyling partner were both wonderful! I was going to do my own makeup and hair but then had a change of heart and booked Aradia a week before my wedding! Luckily she was available on such short notice. Very easy and convinient, they came to our hotel and made up my maid of honor and me. She takes a look at your skin type and features and asks your preferances to see what will work best. I was very happy with the results, the make up is great quality. I have oily skin and was scared I'd end up looking shiny in the middle of the wedding, but my face stayed nice and matte, I was suprised! She's great, highly recommended :-)

"Thank you so much for everything you did for me during the wedding and the two weeks prior. You are amazing and I can only hope to see/use you again in the future!" Kindest Regards///
Ashley S, 2/12/2010
"Thank you again Aradia for doing such a wonderful job on mine and my mom's make up. Thanks to Kei too for the wonderful job she did on our hair. It was an amazing night and we owe you a lot of thanks for making us feel confident and beautiful. I will recommend you any chance I get."
Amanda M, 2/12/2010
Aradia, you are the best and I would not have trusted anyone else for Vidya's wedding, knowing how much effort she had put in it. It was an honor to be made up by you. The compliments were endless for all of us on our hair and make-up. VIDYA can't stop talking about how great you are and what a joy it is to work with you. And of course I don't mind the credit I get for being the one who made the connection ;) Thank you so much for giving me another opportunity to have a makeup session with you, I can't wait. Look forward to working with you again.
Nirala M, 1/14/2010
From the moment I saw Aradia's work, I was looking for an opportunity to use her for a special event for myself. When my sister in law told me she needed someone, I immediately sought Aradia's number and called her. She was so accomodating to us and worked with our budget to ensure that we were happy. At the trial run, as expected, my sister in law fell in love with her. How to u make someone already beautiful, look even more beautiful... Well, Aradia did it! Her make-up application was flawless, I knew that she was the right person. The wedding was a traditioanl Indian wedding, and was not sure if someone who was not in the same culture could have understood what ws expected, but I dint think anyone else could have captured the image if an Indian bride as Aradia and her hairdresser did. She stayed with our bridal party 12 hours during the entire ceremony and reception, ensuring that the bride and her four members of the bridal party looked perfect! Aradia, you are amazing and we feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with you.
Amornm, 1/10/2010 - WeddingWire.com
Aradia, you are amazing! I have to say that I was scared of not finding the perfect make-up artist. I even had nightmares. But when I met Aradia, all my dreams came true. She is awesome. She knows how to apply make-up and make you look more beautiful than what you already are. She also explains everything that she applies on your face. I knew from the moment she did my trial make-up that she would be my make-up artist. She had all my bridesmaids raving on how amazing she is. I even had one of the girls tell me she is better than some other sought after make-up artist in the gables. I just couldn't believe how beautiful you made my mom looked the day of my wedding. You had my dad loving her all over again=) Thanks again for your talent and amazing work. I will definitely use Aradia again for ALL my make-up needs.
June and Alex, 11/27/2009 - WeddingWire.com
LOOK NO FURTHER! Aradia was my life saver!!!! Two weeks before my wedding I had to break up with my make-up artist who was also doing everyones hair for the day. I called Aradia and I felt so comfortable with her immediately. She accomodated my 2 week wedding panic and also searched high and low for a hair dresser for me. She found me a hair dresser at a great price and arranged EVERYTHING for me. I feel in love with her makeup skills online and was even more in love when she did my trial. The makeup she uses is QUALITY!!! Everything she uses lasts and makes you look flawless. Her skills allows you to be beautiful yet seductive. I looked amazing on my wedding day and all of my girls and my mother have never looked better. I could write a book on how much I love her and so happy that she was my make-up artist. She spent so much time with me during the trial to ensure I had the exact look I wanted. You would be a fool not to use Aradia for your special day.
