"I was looking for a good make-up professional for my La Jolla destination wedding in April 2021, and my wedding planner recommended Heather. I did a "test" session several months before the wedding, and I was very pleased with what she did! She was prompt, prepared and professional! She took time to ask questions about the look I was going for before ever starting to apply a bit of make-up. She took notes through the process including my likes and dislikes, allergies to certain products, etc. She then took pictures afterward to document the final "look" I was happy with! On wedding day she was early arriving and ready to go...and delivered! Her make-up was applied perfectly to enhance my facial features, not cover them up! She accomplished my goal of wanting to look like the best version of me...with a touch of glam!"

"Heather and her team provided wedding day hair and make-up services for us at our ceremony venue. She came highly recommended by our wedding planner and it was a reputation that was well-deserved. Even prior to my first appointment she was proactive in trying to gather an understanding about our wedding vision, the look I was going for and giving thought to ensuring that I got what I wanted. The pre-wedding appointment was professional, she was welcoming and made me feel very comfortable and it was clear she had spent time reviewing what I had sent her. And it was fun! She was the makeup artist but she brought on Christina to do my hair. They listened, didn’t make me feel dumb or inept and definitely gave me the look I asked for… me but even better! They made me feel beautiful that day and more importantly on my wedding day. And they did the same for my family!! They handled hair and makeup for ten of us with all different personalities, skin and hair types, and preferences and everyone was happy with their results. What a great experience. Thank you Heather!!"

"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!"

"Heather did my hair and makeup for my son's Bar Mitzvah. I got so many compliments on both! I can't wait to see the photos. Also, Heather was very easy to work with, pleasant, professional, and low stress. I really appreciated her and can tell she enjoys and takes pride in her work!"

"Had a fantastic experience with Heather! She did my makeup for my professional headshots. She listens really well and aims to deliver what her clients are looking for in the final look. She also makes the experience fun!"

"I am so beyond happy that I booked Beauty by Heather Arnold for my wedding! Heather was so amazing and helped bring my vision to life. My bridal party and I were so thrilled with the final looks and it was better then I could have imagined. I had a few skin concerns that I wanted to be covered for my wedding and Heather was so amazing and made my skin look flawless. The hair stylist she brought with her, Christina, was amazing as well. She was able to create the perfect hair looks when I wasn’t sure what would look best for each of the girls. Overall, I cannot recommend Beauty by Heather Arnold enough. I am looking forward booking her for all of my future events!"

"Heather is a professional makeup artist I would definitely recommend! I had the pleasure of employing her for my brand photo shoot. She was impeccable in promptness, cleanliness, artistry, and disposition! Love the end result, and her! 💗"
"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!"
"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!"
