Remy is amazing! She was by far the most responsive, reliable vendor that we hired for our wedding. I’ve honestly never loved how anyone has done my makeup in the past, so I was nervous about finding the right hair and makeup artist for our big day. However, Remy surpassed my expectations and helped me feel beautiful and confident walking down the aisle. She is so sweet, talented, and hard-working. I am so happy that Remy was a part of our wedding!

This is a long overdue review!! My friend recommended Remy when I was asking about makeup artists to help me get ready for my maternity pictures of my first child. I reached out to her way in advance because I wasn’t sure how to go about a makeup person for an event because I don’t wear makeup and my hair is always in a tita bun. She was on it when it came to communicating thru email because I live on big island and the pics would take place in Honolulu.
She was describing makeup terms to me but broke down the lingo for me to understand which I appreciated very much. On the day of the photo shoot she was on time and did the session in a timely manner cause she knew I had to make it across town in half an hour. Thru the session she explained to me what style she was doing and why to my hair and makeup cause the photo shoot wouldn’t be until 4 hours later and how to upkeep it to make it last.
Photo shoot was a success! When I get married (not sure the date yet) in Honolulu I plan on booking with her again to do my bridal party and myself! So grateful to have came across a wonderful artist like her!!!

My sister and I had a photoshoot together and Remy was our makeup artist and hairstylist. To say that she did an AMAZING job is not enough. She knows how to keep a natural look and to highlight our traits at the same time. My sister and I usually don’t look alike but she knew how to highlight our similarities so well. Also, we both have sensitive skin so we are very careful with what we put on it, and Remy used very good products. We only want to use those now! We had such a great time with her while she was taking care of us, she’s so easy to talk to and we felt very relaxed. Thank you so much!!

I got married last month and Remy did my hair and make up. She was amazing!! I wear zero make up and my hair is almost always in a ponytail. When it came to the wedding, I wanted something natural and to look like myself — but didn’t want to worry about buying products or learning how to use them. After much searching, I found Remy’s website — thank goodness! She was super responsive and easy to communicate with, arrived on time and with a great calm, friendly energy. We didn’t do a trial — instead, I sent her a few pictures of things that I liked. She understood what I was looking for and talked me through various choices. She was perfect! I can’t recommend her highly enough! Mahalo, Remy!!

Remy was referred to me by my Photographer, and I’m so glad we went with her! (My husband and I booked a photoshoot on our trip to Oahu, and I needed hair and makeup done.) I had a bunch of concerns and she addressed them all and made me feel beautiful, without having to question those doubts anymore! I wanted a certain look that Remy wasn’t afraid to tell me wouldn’t work for my thin hair, which I totally appreciated. I honestly had no idea what I wanted done with my hair beyond that, so I let her do her thing and it turned out exactly how I wanted, without knowing it was what I wanted (if that makes any sense at all) I’m really happy I found her!

I just got married 12 days ago and Remy did the most studding job on my hair and make up. She is amazing and very professional at her job. She is so nice and patient, and has a good taste which is so important as a stylist. I had both trial session and wedding day makeup & hair setup with her. During my trial session, she has stayed up really late with me in the hotel to try different looking until I pleased with my hair and make up. I would recommend her to every bride as she is fabulous from trial to the bid day!

Thank you, Remy! —- A bride from Chicago

I had my makeup done for prom and it looked amazing, was exactly what I wanted and wore well the whole night!

Remy was such an amazing artist to work with! She makes getting your makeup done super convenient because she comes to you. She was so fun and relaxed and made me feel super comfortable. She also managed to even out my skin tone (I tend to be pretty pink/red) and give me a beautiful glamorous look while keeping me super natural and not cakey. I was really worried my makeup would look overdone, but I just looked like I woke up like this. I would definitely recommend Remy!

Remy did my Hair and Makeup for a job interview very early in the morning and she was AMAZING! :) We didn’t have time to do a trial run so I had sent her a couple pictures of what I wanted online and she had sent me back some trendy ideas as well. The end result came out even better than expected AND it lasted all day perfectly. Remy made me feel very comfortable and listened to every request. It was like having your best friend do your hair and make up with zero awkwardness. She’s the bomb you should choose her won’t regret it! Thank you Remy! :)

Remy is a fantastic makeup artist! I planned my wedding from the mainland, and corresponded via email and texts. Remy responded in a timely fashion, answering all of my questions about cost, brand of makeup used etc. She asked for inspiration photos to give her an idea of the style of makeup I wanted. I completed one makeup trial and Remy asked me to notify her if it did not keep or if I wanted any adjustments. I LOVED my makeup, and so did my family members who also had their makeup done. She accomplished my desired look effortlessly. My sister recently used Remy for her wedding and was equally pleased.

Remy did my makeup very light and natural looking. It was exactly how I had described what I wanted. She made sure to involve me in every step of the way, making sure that I liked each thing she did. I was very comfortable and Remy made me feel very relaxed. I definitely will be using her again.

Remy did the makeup for my wedding. She was professional and friendly. I asked for a natural look and she made my skin glow. She even gave me advice for skin treatment the week prior.

Thank you soooo much for all of your help to make our special day so wonderful!!! From the hair and makeup, to helping us find a photographer, I really can’t thank you enough! Truly appreciate everything.

I’ve had my makeup done before, but wasn’t totally satisfied because I always looked like my makeup was way too heavy. I googled & found Remy. I took a look at her portfolio & decided to book her. She was so accommodating & helped me out so much! Even meeting me where it was convenient for ME & giving me quarters because I needed them later & forgot to bring some. She also made me feel at ease about the whole experience. Talk about customer service! I told her what I wanted, which was exactly what I got & more. She took the time to make sure I was happy with my results. My photos came out gorgeous & my photographer even complimented my makeup. Book Remy, you won’t be disappointed!

Remy did my makeup and hair for my Oahu destination wedding, and it came out so beautiful! I arrived the day before my wedding so I was super nervous seeing as I had no time for a trial. Remy kept a very open line of communication so we could hammer out all the details and ease my nerves as much as possible. She really understood what I was going for, and it all turned out beautifully. The makeup and hair lasted beautifully the whole day, and I couldn’t have been happier. The whole process was so smooth, and a great experience. I am so glad to have found her for my special day.
