My friend and makeup artist Lisette Bugeja has done it again! Her talent clearly goes beyond make-up. She not only [does] makeup, but also made this dress! I can easily see this dress at the Grammy’s next Monday. Congrats Lisette Bugeja. You are soo talented! Big kisses! If anyone is looking for a makeup artist (or costume designer for that matter) seek her out!!! She even did my wedding makeup! I would highly recommend her!

Lisette is the total package: crazy talented, extremely hard-working, with an easygoing personality and a sense of humor that will keep you in stitches. She is a huge asset to any set she works on.

In life and certainly in the fashion/modeling industry, you never really know what to expect when meeting and working with new people. Will personalities clash? Will the project be hijacked? Will your time be completely wasted? So, it’s always a bit of a gamble. I have always felt extremely fortunate to be able to work with such amazingly talented, beautiful and extremely kind professionals and I had the pleasure recently to continue that streak of good fortune by working with Lisette Bugeja and Vanetta Blessings - these two ladies are as kind as they are talented.

Marissa and Andrew had a terrific New York City Wedding at Tribecca Rooftop in New York City . We had a gorgeous day, and it was a pleasure working with [...] Lisette Bugeja did Marissa’s makeup, StylesonB did her hair. It was also great to work with Robert Bachert at Tribeca Rooftop.

If you are looking for amazing makeup look no further! We had the best experience working with Donna planning and Lisette for the makeup the day of. Everyone one of my girls LOVED their makeup and chatting with Lisette the day of. She was extremely flexible in doing my trial and I was amazed by how she does lashes the day of (rather than having to go get expensive lash extensions and worry about having an allergic reaction right before your wedding). Her passion inspired me to start wearing eyeshadow again, which I am loving! Seriously they are the best!!!

Lisette was our makeup artist and Odessa was our hair stylist. BOTH of these women were AMAZING and so sweet! I was a little nervous at first because, like many, I am afraid that others won’t do my hair or makeup the way I want or in a way that fits my personality. These ladies definitely proved me wrong. Lisette did my makeup beautifully-not to dramatic, but it was definitely noticeable and I loved it. Odessa could do any hairstyle I showed her a picture of and actually made it suit me better than the hairstyles in the photos. They were so willing to come at any time we needed the next day and my family loved their warm, vibrant personalities. They definitely made us feel special on such a special weekend. It was worth every penny!

Lisette was the best! She did makeup for the groom’s family all three days of the wedding weekend. She considered each personality and created the perfect look for everyone; from quiet and demure, soft and elegant, to bold and stunning. Thank you Lisette for our beautiful faces and being such a wonderful part of our celebration. Attikus absolutely adored getting her makeup done each day (and me too)!!

Our makeup artist (genius) was Lisette, who arrived early with multiple suitcases of makeup and supplies and her warmth and talent went into high gear rapidly. Lisette is professional, talented, and a beautiful person inside and out. She tailored all of our makeup sessions to our individual styles and we all looked and felt beautiful. Her experience was without a doubt present and she never appeared tired as she did up to 7 of us in a day and never sat down. We wished we could have taken them home with us! Thank you sooo much!

Donna sent Odessa (hair) and Lisette (makeup) to work with my family for a wedding. There were 7 of us total. They became family over the 3 days they were with us and did an AMAZING job! Each of us wanted something very different and they were able to provide that unique look for each of us!! We had so much fun and I wish I could bring them home to Texas with us! Amazing job ladies!!!!
