“Prefect” is how my husband described my wedding makeup and hair.  It was prefect, exactly what I'd dreamt that I would look like on my big day. I met Kara through mutual friends when I was planning my wedding, within a few hours knew I needed her to do my wedding!  I had a destination wedding in New Orleans 12/13/14. It was just going to be my mom and I for makeup and hair but last minute we added my mother-in-law and sister-in-law.  Kara is such a professional, she handled the additional add-ons flawlessly. We all looked amazing!  I am so happy I met Kara and that she was able to come to New Orleans for my wedding. She also made custom hair extensions for my big day. The extensions are fabulous better than anything you can find elsewhere. I had no stress using Kara she knew what I wanted and it was easy to commutate my needs. Kara’s passion shows in work she will make you look spectacular. Book Kara you will not be sorry she is simply incredible!

Kara did my makeup for prom and six years later when I got engaged I asked her to do my bridal hair and makeup because honestly I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it on such an important day. I want to say that at 17 I didn't realize how good she was but over the years I've been in several friends' weddings and have had my makeup and hair done by a few other people, some I can't believe I even paid for, but I have never felt as pretty as I did for prom or on my wedding day. My bridesmaids fell in love with Kara and her team too and to this day, I still get compliments on how I looked - there's no better gift in my opinion.

If you're looking for the best makeup artist, Kara Sanchez is the one.  My fiancé and I were looking for a talented professional, gay friendly artist for our engagement photos. While I wanted hair, makeup and brows for myself, my fiancé wanted to keep it simple. Kara was very accommodating and tailored to both of our needs. We were so impressed with the results, we hired her for our bridal trial and wedding day styling for our destination wedding in Cancun. I would highly recommend Kara Sanchez.

Kara transformed my brows from “caterpillars to butterflies.” I used to be unhappy with my brows, but the shaping and makeup tricks she taught me really made me feel like they are one of my best features now. I was SO pleased with my new brows I had to have Kara as my makeup artist for my wedding. She did a absolutely FANTASTIC job!! Kara has an AMAZING ability to make you feel totally GLAMOROUS and completely natural at the same time. She also applied individual false lashes and they were definitely one of my favorite things about my wedding pictures. Kara is a perfectionist at her art and brings a professionalism that can’t be matched.

My mom found Kara and gifted her to me for my wedding hair and makeup. We found all our vendors in Colombia but my mom said we weren't taking a chance on my makeup. I didn't meet her until my wedding day and I was scared since I didn't have a trial but I am very glad Kara agreed to come to Bogotá. Because of her I never felt so beautiful and within an hour we made a place for her in the wedding because my family loved her too.

I've had bangs most of my adult life because I've always hated my brows but Kara has been my brow guru for 6 years now and I haven't had bangs since! I don't know how she does it but it's worth the 3 hours I drive to see her. I wouldn't drive that far for my hair stylist but I will for my brows!

This is my best recommendation for getting your eyebrows shaped. I had mine done a couple months ago and I still get compliments. I have had my eyebrows threaded, plucked, or even waxed and I just can't go back to that since Kara started doing mine. Not to mention, she gave me tutorial on how to continue to maintain my brows in the interim. You end up getting a great experience AND you walk away with advice and tools to maintain the great look of your brows! This is just not a service you can get anywhere else!

I was hesitant to hire a makeup artist for my engagement photos but my photographer urged me to consider it and recommended Kara. She made me look better than I ever could have and what impressed me the most is that I still looked like myself, my fiancé said I looked like a photoshopped version of me! I asked Kara if she could teach me how to do my makeup better and she did a Makeup Bag Makeover a few weeks later. She spent more than 3 hours with me, took me makeup shopping, took photos of all the looks and made lots of suggestions on what products I really needed and which ones I really didn't. She's going to do my wedding makeup too and I can't wait!

Kara was already booked when I tried to get her for my wedding but it is my own fault, my wedding planner told me not to leave hair and makeup to the last minute. She sent her team and everyone was happy about how we looked but what impressed me most is that Kara FaceTimed me while her team was there just to check in and see if we were happy. I hope to have something else to go to in the future so I have an excuse to have her work on me. Excellent customer service.
