Carla was a dream to work with! She was super flexible, and just the sweetest. I’m not a huge makeup person, but I certainly wanted to feel special on my big day. During our test run, she listened to me and helped with my vision. She gave me makeup advice for daily wear, and told me how I could get my skin wedding-ready in the weeks leading up to the wedding. End result was a natural look with a pop of fancy ;) Just what I wanted without even realizing it. She was so much fun. On the morning of, she was just one of the girls, trading stories, giving advice, and fitting right in. Thank you, Carla!!

I was married in LA, but came back to celebrate our reception with family. We decided to have our wedding pictures done at the reception with family. I booked Alea Beauty for my hair and makeup. I opted for a retro looking bun and natural makeup. I was shocked when I saw my hair and makeup at the preview session and even more thrilled when it was done on the day of my reception. Not only did I look great (I’m 41 years old) I also felt comfortable and the makeup did not cause any issues with my acne prone skin. Carla also took care of my two daughters, one of whom is very picky and has been known to get upset at salons (this is due to a disability). She practically read my kids’ minds. I could not have been happier!
