"I cannot stress enough how happy I am with my skin since I've received Dr. J's beauty advice on revolutionizing my skincare routine. With her tips, I've been able to change the look of my skin from appearing dull to looking dewy without an Instagram filter or makeup. Seeing a real difference in my skin has also given me the motivation to finally kick the habit of touching my skin when I'm stressed or bored. Now my skin is glowing and it's all thanks to Dr. J!"

"I was very nervous about my wedding day, but having Anika by my side to take care of all my skin and makeup needs made me feel completely relaxed and prepared for the excitement ahead. Anika does an amazing job customizing her beauty routines and tailoring them to the desires of the individual. I was thoroughly impressed! From the makeup trial run to the main event, Anika was positive, confident, and professional. She eased all of my concerns and explained what she was doing every step of the way. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to look and feel great! 10/10!

"I am the kind of woman who will apply eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick and just go. I never saw myself being someone who can wear a whole face of makeup especially because I don't know how to apply it. Dr. J has done my makeup twice and it's amazing how shocked I am to see my face transform!! I immediately want to take 1000 selfies because I look extra fabulous. Dr. J knows how to mix colors that will complement my features and enhance my natural skin pigment. Her use of colors like green's and blue's to enhance my eyes, always make my best facial feature pop! My face looks smooth and even. I also appreciate her attention to detail when applying makeup ESPECIALLY how hygienic everything is. Thank you for making me look like a star.

"My make up experience with Ms. Johnson was extremely memorable. She was focused on applying makeup as if she were creating a masterpiece. My eyebrows were precisely done and looked flawless. The natural look that Anika gave me brought out my inner beauty. I received countless compliments about my makeup and my guy stated that I looked stunning. If I could have Ms. Johnson around on a daily basis then I would always look pristine and well polished. The professionalism and care that she showed were second to none. Whenever I have a major life event I will definitely call on Ms. Johnson to create a breathtaking look for me.

"My experience with Anika was amazing! She was very professional and very skilled at her work. As a beauty advisor, I am very particular about how my makeup is done but she did a great job and surpassed my expectations. My makeup was so flawless that I didn't even want to wash it off! But of course, I did though. I will defiantly be using her services in the future and I will recommend her hands down!

"I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Anika Simone as my make-up artist. She took her time and explained everything she put on my face. She explained the make-up application process, the appropriate color scheme for my two-tone skin complexion and skin type – normal/dry. She also did magic to shape and define my eyebrows – Loved it! Anika Simone also informed me of the style of the brush she used for each step and why she used it. Additionally, she provided me with instructions on how to and how often to clean my face and brushes. I highly recommend Anika Simone. Not only will you get your makeup done, but you will also get a tutorial and good conversation :-). She concluded the session with a list of recommended products for a reasonable price and a how-to-do list. Anika Simone will be my make-up artist for a lifetime!!!

"Makeup has always been foreign territory for me! Lipgloss has been my go-to for years. Having had my makeup done on a variety of occasions-I am extremely pleased with how Anika enhanced my facial features and stayed true to my natural look. Her attention to detail, knowledge of products, and passion for making makeup an extension of a woman's personality is truly inspiring!

"Before using Anika's makeup service, I had never really worn makeup. I have pretty clear skin and was nervous about makeup clogging my pores. However, when I had a big event to go to, I decided to give makeup a try. Anika was not only professional but also extremely educational. In the few years that I have known her, she has taught me so much about makeup application AND skincare. Since that time I have gotten my makeup done several times, each time trying a new look. I love the versatility of her skills (I have gotten natural looks and full-face looks). Anika also offers consultations so that clients can have an idea of what their makeup will look like before the day of their event. I love her organization and her passion as an MUA.
