Shirley was such a pleasure to work with! She did my hair and makeup for my sangeet and completely blew me away with her talent. I showed her a couple of ideas I had for hair and makeup and she was able to make me look like a freaking princess. I received so many compliments for my look that day all thanks to Shirley! She also was so sweet while doing my makeup. It was the first event so she helped me calm my nerves. Would love to work with her again and will recommend her to all my friends! More...

Shirley is one of the best make up artists out there guys!! She did my wedding day glam and I am SO happy I made that choice. Not only did she take her time, she checked in with me and made sure I was satisfied (which I definitely was) with the look as she was working!! On top of that, my wedding day from start to end was 12 hours long- 8 of which were spent outdoors and many of which were spent dancing and sweating (lol tmi) ... EVEN THEN, by the end of the night my face still looked bomb and I felt flawless!! Do the right thing- hire this girl!! More...

Shirley was so pleasant and definitely gave me makeup that lasted all day and night since I officiated a wedding. I actually still had my hair curled until the end of the following day. She was on time and let me know when she would arrive. I really appreciate what she did on such short notice and I would definitely go back to book her again.What a local gem! More...

I recently had a fashion show and @surelybeautiful come as an MUA for a couple of my highly recognized models, I already knew of her talents and professionalism from having her as one of my @DYFAcademy graduates, but this was the first time I was working with her in the real world and she blew me away! We've posted pictures all over social media and each image came out just as beautiful as it looked in person. Stunning, and I will definitely be using her again in the future!! More...

I had the pleasure of getting my makeup done by Shirley at a bridal event in San Diego. Her skills and cleanliness when it comes to makeup are outstanding. Her personality was the icing on the cake as well. I loved the look she created on me and the colors she used. It felt like there was nothing on my face. I would recommend her for anyone! More...

Shirley is amazing! I was super nervous and excited to pick an artist to do my wedding and when I met her at a bridal show in 2018, I knew I had to have her do mine. She did my engagement shoot look and my ceremony and reception as well. The makeup and hair came out so good! We just got our professional photos back and I look flawless! I would definitely recommend her for all your beauty needs! I can't wait to have another event just to get glammed up by her again. Not to mention she is such a sweet heart and so easy going.

Saw her posting on Facebook about lash extensions and contacted her through FB Messenger. She got back to me right away, and it was easy to make an appointment. I liked the fact that she was very willing to work around my schedule to accommodate me. I usually get lash extensions that cost tons of money but only look "OK." The lashes that Shirley put on me are the best I have seen! They look natural but dramatic, and I like them better than regular lash extensions (these are cluster lashes, put on with regular lash glue, rather than the ones that stay on until your real lashes grow out). The price was very reasonable and she worked quickly. I had a ton of fun talking to her because she is very down to earth. I would definitely go back for refills! More...

Shirley is wonderful! She responds to inquiries in a timely manner, receptive, and easy to talk to. My hair is frizzy and unruly, and I was very impressed with the way she managed it. I was extremely satisfied with my wedding hairstyle. She also did my entire bridal party's hair without any delay. She works efficiently because she's very professional and knows what she's doing. I definitely recommend her services. More...

Shirley was very professional and definitely made me look and feel beautiful on our wedding day back in November 2017. I loved the hair and make up on my bridesmaids too as well as my mom, aunt, flower girl, grandma and sister in law. She really knows how to make you look stunning. I know my guest loved how I looked too. I had a hair and make up trial with her before and after that I knew I didn't need to try with someone else. It was a yes from the beginning. On the day of our wedding, she brought with her one of her specialists to help with the bridesmaids and family hair and make up. They came to our place with all of the equipment. Even though I didn't know exactly what I wanted for my hair and make up, I trusted Shirley she would do an awesome job! I would definitely hire her again for a big event. She made the day go by smoothly and with zero stress. Thank you Shirley! I'm so thankful my coworker referred you to me. You exceeded my expectations! More...

So thankful that I got connected to Shirley. I was looking for a professional makeup artist who was well equipped to do my hair and makeup for my engagement shoot and wedding, and Shirley EXCEEDED my high hopes and expectations! It is rare that a makeup artist knows how to work with Asian makeup and do it well, but she did an outstanding job. This was the first time getting my makeup done professionally so I went into the process of looking for the perfect artist nervously and did a round of interviews before I found Shirley. But "surely," Shirley quickly appeased all my anxiety and was easy to communicate with and I have AMAZING photos to prove it! Like most women, I am my harshest critic when looking through photos of myself, but when I saw previews of my engagement and wedding pics, I knew this was not going to be the case and I wasn't going to be disappointed. Because of Shirley, I don't have to regret my wedding photos the rest of my life, like many women do. And on the most precious day of my life thus far, Shirley came through and delivered not only for me, but also my bridesmaids. I am so grateful for her talent and I have so much respect for her! She's truly a master at what she does and I would highly recommend booking Shirley for both makeup and hair services for your next event! I am the biggest skeptic when it comes to having someone else touch my hair and makeup, but with Shirley I have FULL confidence in her ability. I had her do a little "extra" on me for my engagement shoot, and for my wedding I had her tone it down just a bit...and she proved herself competent in both looks! So whatever it is you're looking for, she does each and every job with supreme excellence! She lives up to her name! Thank you, Shirley!!! More...

Shirley's work is amazing! My gf recently got married and Shirley did her hair and makeup for the events and did such an amazing job! Not only does she do flawless makeup, but she's also sweet and patient! She did my hair and the rest of the bridesmaids hair as well for the wedding. She's very very talented and a pleasure to be around! I hope I get the chance to have my makeup/hair done by her again in the future! More...

Shirley is VERY talented and the best!!!! She was always on time and ready to start with a smile no matter how early it was (3am! ).  We had the pleasure of her dolling us up (hair & makeup) for 4 of the 5 events.  She knew exactly what would look good on my sister and me.  Plus she got my mom and aunt ready (hair & makeup as well) for 2 events too.  Shirley helped me get out of my comfort zone and I felt beautiful! She is an expert on south Asian makeup. Shirley is my go to makeup artist for any occasion I want to look my best. Shirley, thank you for making me feel & look my best! More...

I showed her a picture of the hair I wanted and she did it 10x better! The make up she did on me was flawless! I kept getting compliments the whole day about how great my make up and hair was! I highly recommend her for your events! Thank you Shirley for making me look fabulous! :D More...

I got super lucky a few years ago when my husband and I were asked to do an engagement Photoshoot and Shirley who was friends with the photographer was assigned to do my make up. She did such an amazing job, that my husband to this day, can't stop looking at the pics from that Photoshoot. I immediately hired her for my wedding make up artist, and my personal favorite make up artist for all special events and she never ceases to amaze me with her creative and beautiful looks. What makes Shirley such an incredible make up artist, is her ability to listen. I'm not big on a lot of make up, but if I'm going all out... I like to make sure my mua knows the exact look I'm going for and not only open to suggestions but contributes by adding her own touch. She's willing to go above and beyond to make her clients feel and look absolutely stunning! More...

I met Shirley at a photo shoot couple weeks ago. She has done my hair and make up for the shoot and I loved it. I usually hate my makeup at the photo shoots since most of make up artists over do it, but Shirley listened to the designer and gave her exactly what she wanted. She is also very sweet and friendly.

Shirley's service were amazing!! I was a bridesmaid for my brother's wedding in early August and she provided exceptional service to not only me but my daughter, mother and aunt.  Her pricing is reasonable and her service fee to travel to your location is well worth it especially if you're on a tight schedule! Besides being super professional, Shirley is talented. Many people complimented me that night and loved how Shirley made me look truly gorgeous! Thanks again Chica. I highly recommend her for any event or simply if you're interested in playing with a new look. More...

Shirley did a beautiful job on my makeup and hair. She came to my home and not only provided service for me but also for my daughters. She completely transformed us all and made it us look natural. She worked very closely with me to find out exactly what I wanted and she also made some very good suggestions. She was in constant communication and was quick at answering my questions and in giving me quotes. Very professional and quality of work was exceptional. More...
