“She made sure she was executing my vision”
I had the best experience working with Mansi. From the minute I met her at my trial, I felt like we were long lost friends. I felt stressed about choosing the correct makeup artist and I was extremely happy with my decision. What I never realized until the day of the wedding is how much time I would spend with my makeup artist over the entire wedding weekend. It can be between 6-10 hours. How lucky that Mansi was like an instant bff and time with her flew by. I was never bored or stressed during the process. She made sure she was executing my vision and made me step out of my comfort zone in the slightest of ways that really added to my entire look. The week of the wedding, I decided I wanted a floral headpiece but didn’t have time to go out and buy this. Mansi stepped up and bought fresh flowers and created a headpiece that I loved. She is the probably the nicest person ever and super fun to be around. I would recommend Mansi a million times over!

“she was prepared, professional, and made sure that I felt confident in her work.”
Makeup By Mansi exceeded every expectation that I had – needless to say, her pleasant demeanor helps significantly. Mansi thoroughly explained the entire process from hair, makeup, and draping. For those women that have sensitive skin and are nervous to use various products – do not worry; Mansi informs you of all the products that are used on your face. It meant a lot to me that she took the time to listen to my opinions when it came to the final look. Mansi is the definition of “conscientious” – she was prepared, professional, and made sure that I felt confident in her work. My friends and family were blown away by the look. Most importantly, her kindness shines through. She is the most down to earth woman who has a heart of gold. I am so honored to say that Mansi Somani was my make-up/hair artist. Thank you for all that you do!

“She made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world”
From the moment I met Mansi, she made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. Every woman wants to feel special and loved on her wedding day, and Mansi was a huge part of the reason why I was overwhelmed with that feeling! From the very first trial to the evening of my reception, Mansi was patient, helpful, calming, and such a pleasure to work with. I didn't have a sense of what I wanted at first and she looked through my outfits to recommend three distinct and gorgeous looks that I received numerous compliments on. With all of the craziness that was going on around me on the wedding day, she was a calming force that was there from the moment I woke up, to touching me up after an emotional first look, to ensuring my pins were in place seconds before I walked down the aisle to the mandap. She was so easy to talk to and connect with and most importantly, is a super talented artist. Hiring her was certainly one of the most amazing decisions I made as a bride and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

“Having Mansi as my MUA was one of the best decisions I made…”
I first had the pleasure of meeting Mansi at my cousins wedding and I knew at that moment that whenever I got married, Mansi would be my MUA. She was so sweet and hospitable to not only the bride but to us bridesmaids as well. Mansi has such a bright and charming personality. She’s the kind of person you want to wake up to see at 3AM.
During my trial she was super sweet and flexible. Trying to understand what kind of makeup looks I liked and taking her time to perfect it. She truly made me feel beautiful at my trial and comfortable to express what I wanted.
Mansi made me look absolutely beautiful the weekend of my wedding. She listens to the bride and works with what her bride wants. I wanted a natural look for all my events and she did an amazing job at keeping the face makeup natural but really enchancing all my features. She also did any amazing job with my hair and draping! What I loved was I had a vision of how I wanted my hair for my Garba but when she did it and I didn’t like how it looked on me, she was like let me try something else and I absolutely loved the hairstyle.
Another thing I love about Mansi, is that she is very personable and passionate about her work. On my wedding day, she stayed with me the whole entire time. From getting me ready to my first look pictures to right before I walked down the aisle and I loved that! She was there making sure I looked the best I could, fixing anything that needed to be adjusted for pictures and taking pictures of me!
Having Mansi as my MUA was one of the best decisions I made because she made me feel like a princess and I was able to connect with such a beautiful person inside and out! I would recommend Mansi to anyone looking for someone with talent, creativity, and such an amazing personality. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

“Her work is incredible - I was literally in tears..”
Working with Mansi for my engagement shoot was the best experience!! She is so easy to talk to and also has an extremely calming presence that made me feel comfortable immediately. I loved that she went over every product she was using on my skin!
Her work is incredible - I was literally in tears and it helped boost my confidence to overcome my nervousness of doing the shoot! She quickly identifies your best features and knows exactly how to accentuate them. She's such a talented artist! Thank you for making my engagement shoot so special for me!!

“She's fantastic at what she does!”
Mansi was amazing to work with and made me look and feel great on my wedding day. Leading up to the wedding she was very responsive and easy to work with to schedule a trial. She was able to take a few things that I said I was interested in and turn it into a cohesive and beautiful look. Mansi is super friendly and calm- which is just what one needs on their wedding day when there are so many things going on. I highly recommend working with Mansi for wedding hair and make up! She's fantastic at what she does!

“It was exactly what I was looking for.”
Mansi did my bridal makeup and hair for my wedding reception. It was exactly what I was looking for and I could not have been happier. She's a total professional and makes you feel very at ease. I would highly recommend her for any event!!!

“Mansi is a top notch vendor; very prepared and professional with her clients”
From the day I had my trial with Mansi, I was hooked! She came highly recommended from a friend so was on the top of my list for vendor choices. Not only does she make you feel like a friend, but she is excellent at what she does. I only had a couple of trials and she was definitely the best. For the wedding, I wanted a very modest, yet traditional look which she executed seamlessly. On the other hand, for my reception, I wanted a very modern/contemporary look but, I didn't have many examples to show her --I just told her I wanted my hair down and elongated with extensions and simply left the rest up to her. The incredible artist that she is, she created a reception look that was more amazing than anything I could've imagined for myself. What's more is that she stayed with me all morning right up until it was time for me to enter for the ceremony, guiding me on how to smile and manage all the garb that I was wearing, doing last minute touch-ups and making sure everything was in place before I walked in. Mansi is a top notch vendor; very prepared and professional with her clients as well as other vendors/photographers, and, she's just the person you want to see first thing in the morning on your wedding day!

“I'm not even sure how to put into words how talented she is!”
I had the extreme pleasure of having Mansi as my makeup artist for my garba and wedding/reception. From the trial to the day of my wedding- Mansi was truly amazing! I'm not even sure how to put into words how talented she is! Right from the get go, she made me feel at ease and confident in her skills. Mansi was patient and was able to infuse my style with her skills to make my visions come to life in the most amazing, making each event look unique and beautiful on their own. Her bubbly and calm personality, made getting ready on the biggest day of my life so easy and fun and I couldn't even imagine having anyone else by my side as my makeup artist and my friend. I would recommend Mansi to anyone who is looking for a truly talented, creative, and fun make up artist!

“I received so many compliments on my hair, makeup and styling of a modern but elegant South Indian bride.”
From the day I got engaged I knew who I'd request for my wedding day beauty services. Although we lost contact after we both went to college together, we kept in touch via social media where I truly witnessed her talent grow and her career expand to new heights. So when the day finally came, I hoped and wished Mansi was available and as soon as she confirmed, I knew I’d be in good hands.
After listening to my vision, Mansi consulted me every step of the way to ensure it would come to life on the big day. She was so patient during several of the pre-planning calls, professional and kind at the trial, encouraging new ideas while still helping make my original concept come to fruition. She even made time to keep in contact while I was in India on my bridal shopping trip! Fast forward to the big day, I couldn't be happier to be welcomed by her smiling face at 4am! She was super organized, neat and very efficient to get things done which was so appreciated on the morning of a very chaotic day. I truly felt like a queen with my glamorous but natural look for the formal ceremony then like a superstar at night to complete my evening look. I received so many compliments on my hair, makeup and styling of a modern but elegant South Indian bride.
Even as we look back at our photos, whenever someone compliments or asks, I have no other reason but to highly recommend Mansi for her skilled services. My sincere thanks and wishes for continued success.

“I would recommend her over and over again.”
Mansi did my make up for my engagement party and my engagement photoshoot, and did not disappoint. She is personable, sweet, and punctual. I showed her my outfit, and she did the rest. She worked wonders. She kept my make up light and natural just as I had asked, but also threw in pops of rose gold and glitter. It was the perfect balance of drama and elegance, simple and classy. I would recommend her over and over again. I was sad she was not available for my wedding, but hey-- when someone's got talent, they're going to book up fast! Catch her while you can! You rock, Mansi!

“She was by far the best vendor I worked with.”
Mansi did my hair and makeup for my June 2016 wedding and she was by far the best vendor I worked with. Mansi is friendly, prompt, courteous, and very kind. She absolutely nailed both looks I wanted and I couldn't have asked for more. We had a short time to change looks between the wedding and the reception and when I started to stress about time, Mansi was amazing at helping me stay calm. I recommend her highly and can't wait to work with her again someday!

“Mansi came highly recommended”
Mansi did my hair and makeup for my wedding last October. I was planning my wedding in New York from California, and I was absolutely terrified that I would not be able to find anyone to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. Mansi came highly recommended by a close friend who hired her for an engagement party. Mansi was extremely quick about getting back to me and was very professional. I didn't meet her until a few months before the big day. She was so helpful in going over options for my hair, and even suggesting hair bands to place at my crown. On the wedding day, she was promptly on time and did an amazing job with my makeup and hair. One of the biggest stresses for me was draping my saree, and Mansi did an amazing job! My saree didn't budge all night! I can't thank her enough for making me such a beautiful bride!

“Goes above and beyond her job!.”
Mansi did my hair and makeup for my Sangeet and did an amazing job. She worked with me extensively to figure out the look I wanted and made it happen. Her makeup is the perfect balance between natural and glamorous. In addition to doing such excellent job with hair and makeup, she is also an incredibly fun, friendly and calm person you definitely want with you on your wedding day! She is the kind of person who goes above and beyond her job to share wedding planning advice and remind you of those last minute details on the day itself. Working with her was such a great experience and the results were absolutely fabulous.

“Mansi was an absolute dream to work with”
I jokingly referred to Mansi as my fairy godmother on the morning of my wedding but after looking in the mirror every time she finished a look on me, I truly believe she worked her magic. Mansi was an absolute dream to work with! During the trial, she talked with me extensively on what looks were right for me and was very patient when I had a hard time deciding. She arrived well in advance on the wedding day, made me feel completely relaxed and even set aside time to quickly fix up my sister's hair for the reception. And one thing I cannot forget: I accidentally left my nose ring in the bridal suite and she tracked down my family to make sure they got it to me. I received so many compliments on both looks that day that I cannot thank her enough! I highly recommend her for any bride looking to be transformed.

“She really listened to what I wanted”
Mansi is such a great artist to work with. She is extremely talented. She is very flexible and will give you exactly what you are looking for. I would say I am a very picky and simple individual. Mansi was able to keep the simplicity I like and still give me a glamorous look. She really listened to what I wanted and gave me a look that exceeded my expectations.
Mansi also did my hair which was perfect. The style stayed the entire length of my shoot and into the next day ( didn't want to wash it out :) ) Mansi also stayed the entire photo shoot and assisted the photographer with any touch ups for me. I thought this was so kind of her as the photo shoot lasted for several hours.
I would recommend Mansi to everyone!! She is so kind and very talented. You can tell she really loves what she does. Simply amazing work!!
