Beautiful and Natural

That’s how I wanted to look for my wedding. Not only did Tina achieve that look, but it seemed to last through the night and felt great! No heavy, cakey feeling makeup. Tina also gave me a touch up kit with all the colors she had used on me for the rest of the evening. I thought that was so thoughtful. Tina had great prices and was great to work with. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

Tina made me look fabulous for my engagement photo session!

As a wedding photographer, I always recommend to my clients to have their makeup done to boost their confidence for the photos they’ll cherish for a lifetime – so I took my own advice and hired Tina to do my makeup for my engagement photo session – and I have to say, the experience was absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend her! I could not have been happier!

I chose Tina for lots of reasons – she is so nice, professional, talented and affordable. I knew I couldn’t go wrong! Setting up our makeup session was easy and stress-free, too.

We talked a little bit about what look I was going for that day and Tina went to work using colors that she knew would work well with my skin tone, eye & hair color. We chatted about my wedding and how the planning was coming along, and before I knew it, my makeup was done! I took a look in the mirror and instantly felt stunning. And I was in my workout clothes, and my hair was still undone. I’m so glad I hired Tina to do my makeup for my photos – every time I look at my photos, I remember how beautiful I felt.

I get so many compliments on my engagement photos – not just for the quality of the photos, but my friends and family have all said how naturally beautiful I look in them – thanks to Tina!

The natural look I wanted

After having Tina do the make for my engagement session and wedding I can confidently say that she is very talented. I was almost giving up on finding someone who would really listen to what I wanted and do a good job without charging me a fortune. Tina was it!!! I had tried to explained to other make up artists that I wanted a “natural look” but as soon as those words came out of my mouth, most of them said that they knew exactly what to do, only to find myself with way too much make up on after the trial. Tina nailed it the very first time. I had 3 bridesmaids also have their make up done with Tina and they all looked gorgeous. My mom is VERY picky about her make up so I scheduled a trial for her. I was very surprised when she said she loved it (it was a first) so Tina ended up doing my mom’s make up as well. Tina was patient with the chaos of so many girls getting ready on my wedding day! Thanks for the amazing work, Tina.

Tina is extremely talented…she is great at evaluating your skin type and any flaws and making you look absolutely beautiful for your special day! I would use her in the future for my makeup needs.

Sometime in December of 2010 1 was asked to be a face model for Tina Mokuau. To date I had only spoken briefly to Tina about her Makeup Artist business which she was beginning to build. Not only was I flattered, but I looked forward to be able to help her. I will not lie, I was a little nervous. The last time I had gotten my makeup done by a makeup artist was for my brother’s wedding and it made me look like a clown in the circus. I looked like a completely different person. It was caked on. it was too dark and it took me a few hours to get off my face which was left irritated for a few days from all the scrubbing.


On this early morning in January of 2011, this was not the case. I was in complete amazement when I stepped off of Tina’s chair. I felt like a princess and never wanted to take the makeup off. It left me looking glamorous and natural all at the same time. I looked like a porcelain doll, perfect skin and perfect makeup. It looked so natural that I thought to myself, “It really looks like me!” Tina not only made me look beautiful, but she let me know that a good makeup artist does not make you look like someone you are not. A good makeup artist knows how to enhance ones features with the ease of her brush, and that is exactly what Tina did.

I found the best makeup artist that Reno has to offer. Tina will be my first call for any special occasion and for my wedding in the near future. I look forward to feeling as beautiful as Tina made me feel. If you are looking for an artist that does makeup look no further than Tina Mokuau- The Makeup Artist, as that is exactly what she is, she is an artist.

Tina Mokuau is very creative and constantly learning new techniques. She spends time with her clients to ensure that she has an understanding of their makeup desires and how their skin might respond. Her unique service gives her clients confidence that they look absolutely beautiful for their special day or event.
I love that she never overcharges – in fact she is extremely reasonable. A client can depend upon Tina’s attention to every little detail for their skin and makeup. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to look their very best and also learn some new techniques in makeup!

Tina is very helpful and seems to know her products! She really listened to what I wanted and provided me with plenty of choices. I had to return a product and there was no problem! She makes trying new makeup products easy!
