I was perusing online for outstanding makeup artists in my area to book for my wedding day. I am a very picky person.. picky about food, clothes, cleanliness...you name it! So once I found Allison's information, I knew right away that I needed to have her do my makeup for my big day! Her online portfolio is just stunning, and I was determined to book her! My wedding was only about 2 months away, so I was not really in the position to be picky. I decided to try my luck and reached out to Allison...and she was available!! I was so excited and could not wait! My trial was perfection.. I could not stop smiling! And she just didn't sit me down, do my makeup, and send me off on my way. She sat me down, asked about my upcoming wedding day, my dress, how I would wear my hair, the colors of my flowers, the colors of the girls' dresses, etc. And she even evaluated my skin.. texture, tone, you name it! This woman knows what she is doing :) When my wedding day arrived, I was so calm knowing that Allison would be coming over to do my makeup. It looked absolutely breathtaking. I received SO many wonderful compliments, and have never felt more beautiful! Allison is truly the best of the best. She is professional, genuine, and so SO talented! I was lucky to have had her do my makeup and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Allison and her team did a fantastic job on my wedding day!
I had known Allison for years, but didn't try her makeup studio until the trial for my wedding - I wish I had gone sooner! She does a great job with makeup and I couldn't have been happier with how wonderful my bridemaids hair and makeup turned out!
She covers all bases before the big day - asks for pictures, color schemes, themes, etc. She goes the extra mile to make sure your look goes along with your wedding!
I'd recommend Allison and her staff to any bride in Pittsburgh! I'll be going bac - just for fun ;)

Allison Roth does amazing work and I highly recommend her for every bride!! She was so easy to work with from day one with her upbeat, welcoming, and friendly personality. She is truly a genuine person! We had so much fun during the makeup trail and the big day. I have never been a person that wears a lot of makeup and she made my look romantic and natural, just what I wanted. It didn't even feel like I had makeup on! I never felt so beautiful in my life! It looked amazing and lasted the entire night after non-stop dancing! I didn't even want to wash my face; I wanted to keep it on for the next day! Thank you so much Allison, you are such a talented artist! -Michele Julian (Mozes) Wedding June 28, 2013

Allison Roth did my makeup for my wedding day. She was prompt, professional and absolutely AMAZING.
I have modeled in the past, I have been in pageants and on TV... And I have had my makeup done professionally at least 50 times. Allison Roth is hands down the best makeup artist that I have ever worked with.
She was so amazing my sister-in-law hired her for their wedding.
Do yourself a favor, hire Allison Roth. Not only will she take away the stress of "wedding day makeup" but she will make you gorgeous on your special day!

Allison did both my makeup and my mom's for my wedding. I hardly ever wear makeup, so I was a bit worried going in that I wouldn't look like myself, but Allison seemed to know just exactly what I had in mind! I did go in for a trial first, which was very helpful because it gave us time to think about several different options in a relaxed environment. I even ended up trying the lashes and she made them look totally natural! Allison was quick to respond to any questions and gave me some extra tips to get my skin in optimal shape before the big day. She was so positive and reassuring throughout the whole process as well, which was very appreciated! She came out to the location of the wedding, which made the day much more comfortable. My makeup was airbrushed and my mom's was regular, and it turned out wonderful for both of us. Allison even made a purple bruise on my mom's chin completely vanish! I would most highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is both highly skilled and also very sweet.

Allison Roth and her team did my makeup, that of my mom and mother in law, and of our 9 bridesmaids on our wedding day.
Every single one of us looked GORGEOUS!!! I felt so glamorous on my wedding day, and I owe that to Allison. She was so accommodating, so easy to work with, and she did such a beautiful job. I could not have been happier with my wedding day makeup!
I HIGHLY recommend Allison Roth to any bride; you will not be disappointed!!!

Far exceeded my expectations, I couldn’t have been more pleased with Allison Roth Studio’s! I honestly could not have found a better person to do my makeup as well as my bridal party. She is extremely talented at what she does and went above and beyond to make my wedding day perfect. I had so many guests come up to me and compliment everyone’s makeup, we looked flawless. Without a doubt I would recommend Allison and her team to make you gorgeous on your wedding day!!

I did extensive research about eyelash extensions, and every site I checked recommended Allison first. I reached out and she immediately got right back to me, and answered all of my questions that I had. I was so surprised because I had emailed her on a Saturday night, and she responded that evening!! When I met her, and had my first session, I was extremely happy with her professionalism, and meticulous application of my lashes. She was very reassuring, and I could not have been happier when I saw the results!! I have since had them re-applied 2 more times, and will continue with Allison, because she is such a joy and does such a fantastic job. I would HIGHLY recommend Allison and think that anyone considering the extreme lashes would be soooo happy with her. She is excellent.

When I first met Allison, I knew she was going to do a wonderful job on my make up for my wedding. We did a trail run in October before my wedding, and we also met again for my bachelorette party. Each time I came into her studio, I felt so welcomed. She was very timely in all of the “behind-the scenes” work, such as paper work. After our first meeting in October, we began planning for my big day. She emailed me periodically with tips on how to take care of skin before the wedding. I must say they have helped because my skin as never felt this great!! On the day of my wedding she came directly to our hotel with two assistants. She set up in the room and began with the first girl. Once I made it to her chair, it felt as if I was back in her inviting studio. She did a fabulous job on my make up. She is even very accommodating the day of and was able to add in a bridesmaid or two. I would highly recommend Allison Roth Studio to any bride I know that is getting married. I also know that I will use her for sure in the future. Thank you Allison for doing an amazing job and for being an amazing person!!!!

She is "simply the best". My airbrush makeup for my wedding day was flawless. Everyone complimented that my makeup looked perfect--"like me but glowing". I felt more beautiful than I have ever felt in my life and it was all because of Allie. Allison has done my makeup for many occasions and I love, love, love it every time, but wedding day makeup was her best work of all. My mom and bridal party were also Allie works of art. We love her and would never ever go anywhere else. Allie is a pro and fantastic person on top of it all! Thank you so much.

When I scheduled my trial with Allison I was pessimistic beacuse I had already had several horrific experiences at different salons downtown and I thought I could do as good a job as anyone else on my makeup for my wedding! Boy was I wrong! Allison was FANTASTIC!!! She asked about my dress and looked through pictures, asked what kind of colors I'd like to use and my input on colors then used her expertise to put my vision together into a beautiful color pallet. I left my trial with luxurious eyes and lashes that lasted from noon all throughthe evening. I went for a very dramatic look at my trial that I decided to change last minute the day of the wedding to make my look softer. It was no problem for Allison, she took one look at my wedding gown and made the appropriate adjustments to my eye color and style. Needless to say, I looked absolutely stunning all night long only having to touch up my lipstick a time or two through the early morning when the fun of the evening finally came to a close! Thank you Allison!

When you go somewhere to get your hair or makeup done and afterwards you know this is a stylist you will remain loyal to it's probably because they made you look better than anyone who worked with you previously. It took me 7 years to find a hair stylist in Pittsburgh that after going to once I will never go see anyone else and that is now the way I feel about about my makeup/lashes because I found Allison :)
Allison is a professional-she's not one of the MAC makeup artists that plays "makeup" with your face at Nordstrom, she is skilled in her craft and has taste.
Her studio is gorgeous and glam and she is someone you can trust with your makeup or lashes. She helped me out after someone at Capristo in Shady Side BUTCHERED my eyelashes with semi permanent lashes that they glued to my skin.
She will be doing my wedding makeup in May but has already done my makeup for my engagement photos. I told her what I liked/envisioned and she did her thing and made me look gorgeous (seriously I didn't want to take my makeup off!)
She also bent over backwards to accomodate my makeup appointment changing. It rained on the day I was originally supposed to get my photos taken, so I cancelled and rescheduled for 5 days later and she fit me in with no complaints.

This is a little belated (wedding day 4/21/12), but I wanted to make sure I passed on my recommendation for Allison! She did my bridal makeup, as well as mother of the bride and makeup/lashes for several of my bridesmaids. From the trial to the big day, she made sure I loved everything, and made the first step in the wedding day prep so relaxing and simple! My mom and I both opted for airbrush, and it was fabulous - it was still pristine at the end of the night. My girls were thrilled with her work as well. Allison's studio is adorable and she is so professional and talented, on top of being a complete sweetheart - I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Allison! :)

Allison was my second make-up trial after I found her through prior bride recommendations. My trial was great. I loved the way the make-up felt on my face - so lightweight. Prices are reasonable. The day-of she came to my house. Make-up for my mom and bridal party was beautiful. My make-up was as expected beautiful. Allison is so nice to work with too.
All day my make did not come off. It lasted through the tears. I did have to touch it up a little bit about two hours into my reception as all the hugs/face squishing was not kind to the unnatural lines in my face. I was so happy when all it took was a clean finger and 5 seconds to smooth my make-up back to natural.

Allison is a very professional & talented makeup artist. I can't say enough how impressed I was with her & how my makeup turned out. After my trial run I knew my makeup would be perfect the day of my wedding. She did my makeup as well as my mom's. I have gotten so many compliments on my makeup the day of the wedding & even after when people started to see photos. I've also had various friends contact me about who had done my makeup. One of my bridesmaids who was there while I was getting my makeup done quickly asked me if she could have Allison's info so she could try & book her for her wedding. My makeup lasted all day through the heat & me dancing the night away. I reccommend her to anyone looking for a flawless, stunning look . Now I just need another reason/occassion to use her :)

I went to Allison a few days before my wedding (Wed, May 9th) and I am writing to you on Tuesday, May 29th, after a honeymoon of swimming in pools, waterfalls, and oceans, a weekend spent out in the sun and in the water, etc... and my extensions are still in! One of my best wedding decisions. The process is a little bit long, but SO worth it! If I could afford it, I would have these things all of the time! I went into my appointment (her studio is lovely, by the way. Very clean, relaxing, and inviting) expecting to pay for her highest package, and Allison was honest enough to tell me that she didn't use enough extensions to warrant that price, and so my cost was 2/3 what I had expected. She is fabulous!

Allison did the makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids...we could not have been more pleased! My makeup still looked perfect after the ceremony and through many hours of dancing! She also did a fantastic job covering my tattoos- they vanished with her handiwork. Allison is a pro and is also a really sweet person who will go above and beyond to make you look and feel perfect on your wedding day. I could not have been happier with her services and would recommend Allison to anyone and everyone!

Allison was referred to me by my close friend and estitician. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Allison. I got Xtreme eyelashes and airbrush make-up for me and my sister for my wedding. I legitimately have never felt so beautiful and my eyelash extensions are TO DIE FOR. They are so great, in fact, that I decided to continue with the maintenance. Allison is amazing at her job and is an amazing person.

Allison did the majority of my bridal party's make up. From the very subtle make up for the mother of the bride to my request for very dramatic eye make up, Allison made everyone happy. If you want professional make up that will last all day and night Allison is the person to go to. The late August heat on the day of my wedding was no match for her skills. I hope to find a reason to use her services again! :-)

Entirely professional and very talented! I am not one who wears a lot of makeup, so nervously I trusted the decisions that Allison made. I was silly to be nervous because every decision she made was perfect!! And the tattoo on my shoulder that I didn't want to see on my wedding day was COMPLETELY covered!! :)
