Gohar is the best makeup artist in Charlottesville, if not the nation! And she's so sweet, professional, and easygoing. I found her at the recommendation of my wedding photographer, and she's since done my makeup three times! Each time, I've looked stunning.
She's mastered the natural, clean, flawless look that me and my big bridal party all wanted. We were a diverse group, and everyone looked like the best version of themselves. And it all stayed put despite the rain and humidity, tears of joy, and sweat on the
dance floor. She's very responsive over email, but she books up fast so be sure to snag her early!

Gohar was amazing!! She was a breeze to communicate with, was wonderful handling our postponed wedding due to COVID, and made me feel the prettiest I've ever felt. I spent a ton of time looking at Instagram pics & reading reviews to find the right make-up
artist & after the wedding, my family and I agreed that her work was absolutely wonderful and beautiful. I wouldn't have changed a thing! I would absolutely recommend, especially to someone who is looking for a more natural look on their wedding day that also
stands out and looks beautiful in pictures!

Gohar is so amazing to work with! She did my wedding party's makeup and everything was so perfect! I highly recommend her services. If I ever need a MUA artist again, I will definitely be going to Gohar :)

I was lucky enough to find Gohar for my big day and I was more than thrilled with her work! I've had my make up done as a bridesmaid and the looks were always over the top and I didn't feel or look like me.

I wanted a natural look that would show my favorite features (blue eyes and freckles) and Gohar delivered! She has unbelievable talent and I was blown away for my wedding day for myself, bridesmaids, and mothers!

Gohar did my wedding makeup along with 7 bridesmaids and my flower girl in early June. She has such a lovely, calm energy that really helped relax me on the big day -- which was huge for an anxious bride like me! Her work is beautiful, and she really listens
to what you want and how you want to look on your wedding day. All of my bridesmaids loved their looks as well -- thank you, Gohar! Wish we could do it all over again.

Gohar did my wedding makeup PERFECTLY - she listened to what I wanted and boy did she deliver! I looked beautiful and I glowed but I still looked like me and the makeup wasn't too harsh or distracting. If I ever needed to hire a makeup artist again, I
would hire Gohar in a heartbeat! I also appreciated how much care she took with all 7 of my bridesmaids - I've been in weddings when make up artists don't really care about the bridesmaids, but she is not like that at all! She is so sweet and so talented -
I wish I could give her more stars! One of my bridesmaids had opted to do her own makeup but seeing how wonderful everyone's makeup was she changed her mind and Gohar squeezed her in - she is that good!!

Gohar is incredible! I’m so happy that I found her to do my bridal party’s makeup for my wedding. Gohar listened to what I wanted and made me feel gorgeous and confident on my wedding day and for my engagement photos. My makeup lasted the entire night
and didn’t need to be touched up at all. I didn’t look fake or overdone; she does an excellent job at enhancing your natural features. My bridesmaids and the two moms also loved their makeup. My mom typically does not wear much makeup and she has mentioned
several times since the wedding how much she loved her makeup and how pleased she is what how it turned out in pictures. Gohar is very responsive to emails, professional, and extremely sweet! I recommend her 100%!!

Gohar was absolutely amazing! I wanted a natural yet photo ready look and she nailed it. I fell in love with her flawless work during our trial and I felt gorgeous on our wedding day. Day of she was so lovely to everyone and was extremely fast and efficient
(I had seven bridesmaids plus my mom). Everyone looked beautiful!! I couldn't recommend her more.

I'm fairly certain there isn't anyone who does makeup better than Gohar in VA. She's an amazing artist, sweet person, and a true professional. If you have the opportunity to hire her, do not hesitate ... just DO IT. You and the ladies in your life will
look and feel naturally gorgeous on your wedding day. There aren't enough good things I can say!

Gohar did an amazing job making us look and feel beautiful for my wedding day. She listened to exactly what I was looking for, and made us all look stunning. She arrived on time and was flexible when working with each of my bridesmaids. She was kind and
put everyone at ease, offering suggestions for different yet similar looks. She uses high-quality makeup that lasts all night and her brushes smelled fresh and clean. Highly recommend!!!!!

Gohar is simply the best! She did an incredible job on our makeup! I felt the most beautiful that I've ever felt - but I still felt like myself. My whole bridal party loved their makeup - and she made sure that my mom (who rarely wears much makeup) was
really happy and comfortable with her final look. I can't recommend her more highly - she will make you feel like the best possible version of yourself!

Gohar did a wonderful job with my makeup on my wedding day. She listened to exactly what I was looking for, and was able to execute it perfectly. She arrived to the bridal suite on time, and was very relaxed and flexible when working with each of my bridesmaids.
Everyone looked beautiful! Also, she uses high-quality makeup that lasts all night! Highly recommend :).

Gohar is absolutely fabulous! She is a pleasure to work with and incredibly talented! Gohar will make your face look flawless while keeping everything incredibly natural! She is one of the kindest people I have ever worked with and went above and beyond
for me and my wedding party. She traveled to not only our hotel 20 mins away but also literally came up a mountain to do our touchups before the wedding! She was flexible on timing and we could tell it was her priority to make the special day perfect no matter
what it took! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and know you will not be disappointed! THANK YOU for everything, Gohar!!

Gohar is equally talented as she is sweet. She gave me and all of the girls in my wedding party a naturally beautiful yet enhanced look. It was exactly what I wanted. My make-up stayed on throughout the duration of the wedding and I got so many compliments.
Cannot say enough nice things...she will listen and give you the exact look you are after. Once I receive my wedding photos I will upload a picture...she made me feel BEAUTIFUL. She's the best!

I am so blessed to have Gohar as my make-up artist for both my wedding tea ceremony and wedding day! She is so talented, sweet, and flexible. She created two different looks and made me feel so beautiful on my wedding weekend. All my bridesmaids and family
members looked amazing as well and they were very happy with Gohar’s services. I can’t wait to find an opportunity to have my make-up done by her again!

Gohar was incredibly responsive, professional, and easy to work with for our January wedding. Even going with my very bare-bones description of the look I was going for (I want to look like me! But extra glowy! But understated! And also I'm afraid of false
eyelashes!), she almost immediately worked up a look that made me feel like the most effortlessly attractive version of myself. She was a pleasure to have in the room while we were getting ready, and each of my friends and family members she worked with were
very pleased, even with a wide array of preferences. I'm very grateful and would highly recommend her work.

Gohar is so wonderful. She is nice, professional and above all she is an INCREDIBLE makeup artist. I can't wait to work with her again in the future!
