Raves Directly From Our Clients

Gen is as kind and warm as she is talented!

I came in anxious and nervous about having my makeup professionally done, and she talked me through everything she was doing while making me a part of the process. I never felt like I was being pushed into looking a certain way, and the end result still looked like me but better!

Mandie V 

Gen was highly knowledgeable and would check in with me every step of the way to make sure I was satisfied with what she was doing!

Thank you so much again for how amazing I looked. It honestly gave me the confidence to be myself in front of the camera!

Virginia B 

I had a shoot on a 40-degree humid day, and not only did she make me look like a supermodel, but the makeup did not move until I took it off at 2 am, more than 12 hours later! She nailed precisely the look that I wanted. She’s a true artist. I can’t wait to book her again!

Cristina C 

Excellent experience. Felt like I knew her forever. Listened to exactly what I wanted for my makeup.

Everyone should book her, and I will definitely be using her again!

Maria C

Gen is not only extremely talented but so, so kind!

Gen is not only extremely talented but so, so kind! She was very accommodating when our family photoshoot had to be cancelled due to illness and even more accommodating when I contacted her the same day it was re-booked to see if she could fit me in. She did an amazing job translating what I wanted despite my ideas not being super clear. I highly recommend her! Thanks again, Gen 🙂

Gen was professional and lovely! My make up turned out beautiful and it turned out amazing for my event!! She’s very skilled and knows what’s flattering for different skin tones and face shapes and taught me a lot of tips and tricks. Definitely will use her service again 10/10 recommend!

Gen is an amazing makeup artist

Gen is an amazing makeup artist, my experience with her has always been pleasant and so much fun! She is skilled at doing many different styles, I have gotten natural glam done for a professional photo shoot and some more extravagant makeup done by her and all were fantastic. She’s very personable and I highly recommend her to anyone for really any beauty-look.

I absolutely love working with Gen.

I absolutely love working with Gen. A very very skilled makeup artist and all around great human. She is unbelievably talented and creative. I hire her for everything from cooperate headshots to creative portraits. She always makes the clients feel super comfortable and confident. Gen walks them through everything she’s doing and ask questions along the way. She also shares all the products she uses and gives people tips on how to improve their day to day makeup. She has a great attention to detail making sure everything is perfect. On set she’s great at noticing things that need to be touched up or modified. Her skill level really shines when giving her creative freedom. I feel privileged to capture some of the makeup looks she creates.

She’s done makeup for me personally as well. As a person who doesn’t wear a lot regularly she always listens to my concerns and makes sure I’m comfortable. I’ve never had a MUA make my eyes pop like Gen does!

Thanks for being part of my team. Can’t wait to keep working together for many years to come.

Gen is SUPER talented and full of great advice

I used Waring Makeup for my wedding in Sept. We did a trial which was such a great idea, so I could get to know Gen and have the chance to make changes to my initial vision. Gen is SUPER talented and full of great advice (especially for someone like me who doesn’t know makeup well). She’s also very fun and down to earth. We scheduled a portrait shoot on the day of my makeup trial - what a great idea! I would highly recommend hiring Waring Makeup!

Mandy B

Everyone is always so happy with their experience with her!

I’ve worked with Gen for a few years now, regularly hiring her to do makeup for my portrait clients. She is always so kind, professional, knowledgeable, and her makeup artistry skills are top notch - everyone is always so happy with their experience with her! She even gave me a personal application recently, so I can say from experience that she really works with you to achieve what’s best for your skin type and makeup goals. Gen is a true gem!
