Reviews by Real Brides!
"Tina was my amazing make-up and hair stylist for our wedding day. She listened to all of my asks and then also provided her professional feedback on what would look best. Tina has a great eye and seems to be able to conform to any style that the bride wants and brings out the best features! My makeup normally tends to smudge easily but I had absolutely no problems even after many tears during the ceremony - no touch ups were needed. She's also very organized and comes fully prepared with everything needed - extra eyelashes, her own makeup chair etc. I would recommend Tina to any future brides or anyone needing a stylist for a special event! I can't thank her enough for helping on our special day!"

"Tina took care of me for many of my special occasions. Engagement and wedding makeup and hair could not have been any better. During my consultation, I had told her that I am not very picky in regards to the style and would like to get her opinion as a professional. She took a look at my engagement wardrobe and wedding dress, she recommended a look and proceeded with the trial. It was perfect! The makeup made me look so pretty and special but looked natural. The pictures are the proof of her wonderful work. She also took care of making my mom look beautiful on my wedding day. Everyone gave so many compliments to her. Tina is very professional, responsive, prepared, and flexible in the way she works with her clients. I highly recommend Tina to those brides who are planning their wedding.
Update: My son's 1st birthday party was in March. Raising a child means there are not many times where you take care of yourself and be pampered. So for his party, I wanted to look nice and had Tina do my makeup & hair. Tina made me look radiant and so beautiful! She made sure the makeup looked natural and brightened my look. I received so many compliments from friends during the party. If you’re looking for makeup & hair artist for any events in your life, look no further! Shine, Tina will take a good care of you!"

"I found Tina through a friend on Facebook who recently received services for her wedding. I sent Tina a private message and within minutes, received a response. From then forth, she was of so much help. She was there to answer my questions, concerns, etc. throughout the day, regardless of the time.Like many brides, I sent Tina mass amounts of emails with every bit of worry but, she was so gracious in responding in a timely manner. On the day of the wedding, she was earlier than anticipated. (which was for the better because we were running a little behind) I was the most beautiful bride!! I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup artist. My mother looked so beautiful with her hair and makeup with Tina's touch. My sister-in-law also looked stunning with her hair and makeup done by Tina. My husband and brother also got final touches by Tina which gave them the perfect look. All in all, our wedding was magical and it was due to the day starting with such great vibes in getting ready!!! I would definitely refer Tina to other friends and family who are looking for an artist for their special day. (or even for special events/parties)"
"Tina brought out the beauty in my mother, my bridesmaids and of course, me, the bride! Included was a stress-free trial session and a detailed schedule for the wedding day, which made all the difference. Tina was such a great make-up/hair artist to work with especially with her fun personality and love of make-up. I hope to use her magic again and for those who haven't, you should definitely check out Shine Tina Makeup & Hair!"
"Tina did my makeup for my big day, as well as several of my bridesmaids, and she was absolutely phenomenal! I was all over the place with what I wanted, but she was incredibly patient and understanding. She stays focused on creating and fine-tuning the look her client truly wants. We all received tons of compliments on our looks. Tina was fun, professional, and most importantly, excellent at her craft. I offer my highest and happiest of a recommendation for her on your big day!"
"Tina was the makeup artist for me, my bridesmaids, and my mother on my wedding day. She is meticulous and has an eye for designing the best look for each person based on their features. She is easy to get along with and was quick to respond when I wanted to bounce ideas off of her. Tina is highly organized, arrived early the morning of, and finished right on time, which allowed me to relax and not stress about makeup as the bride. I loved working with Tina and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to look and feel beautiful on their wedding day!"
"Ji Hyon Tina Shin was AMAZING! She did a few trials with me even though she didn't have to! She listened when I had concerns and made sure I felt comfortable with everything we were doing. She made me look and feel beautiful! She also went above and beyond her duties and helped wherever she could before the wedding even though she didn't have to!! For that, I am extremely thankful!!"
