To whom it may concern,


Please accept this letter as a recommendation for Cynthia Naughton.

I have known Cynthia for more than ten years.  In that time, I have known her as an employer, colleague, but mostly as a dear friend.  

First, I would like to address her talent and attention to detail. I have marveled at her work repeatedly, but so have many others.  She is a thorough researcher and student of history and brings that knowledge to everything that I’ve seen her work on.  In my role as the producer/director of films that she has worked on, I have worked alongside and consulted with Cynthia many times.  Very honestly, she has exceeded my expectations repeatedly. I may know what I want, but I’m still stunned at the professionalism and expertise that Cynthia brings to the job. I can say much more about this or provide more specifics if it would help any decision that you need to make, but suffice to say I wholeheartedly recommend her work and her work ethic.

On a personal level, Cynthia has been a wonderful and dear friend and has a contagious and kind disposition that makes her a joy to be around. I’m grateful for her sense of humor and joy.  It has on several occasions been a help and encouragement to me and I know many others on our film sets as well.  

Lastly, I want Cynthia on my film sets and involved in my projects because she puts her whole heart into her work.  She has passion and life and it’s obvious.  She is not simply a “go through the motions” person.  I appreciate that and I relate to that more than she is aware, because on so many levels, that is how I feel and most of all it is what inspires others to produce the same.

I wholeheartedly recommend her and her fine work.  If you have questions, you can contact me directly at any of the below.

Cynthia did a phenomenal job with my hair and makeup for a vow renewal photoshoot. Her communication was excellent and very thorough. She did a fantastic job of taking my ideas and turning them into a drop dead gorgeous look. She made sure I was totally prepared with a makeup "emergency kit," although I didn't even have to touch it because my makeup looked just as flawless six hours into the day as it did when she first applied it! Cynthia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I could not recommend her more highly! Photos credit: Rose Wheat Photography

Cynthia is amazing at what she does! She is thorough, always testing what hair and make-up looks like under lights, and is carefully watching not just hair and make-up but neck, outfit, and more. We've used her for commercial video shoots and she is professional, prepared, and in control. She is our go to because she's so reliable and goes the extra mile.

Cynthia did an INCREDIBLE job with my make up and hair for some Valentine’s day photos for my husband!! HIGHLY recommend her services!!

Cynthia is my go-to make-up artist for boudoir photo shoots. She's super reliable, experienced, and prepared. She will bend over backward to not only make my clients feel pampered but to ensure their vision for their aesthetic is 100% realized. Even 99% isn't good enough for her. I appreciate Cynthia so much! You will not be sorry you've hired her! She's awesome!

Cynthia preforms magic and is so knowledgeable! She has done my hair and makeup for my company’s annual Christmas party for the last 3 years in my home. The confidence I feel is so rewarding. I always get so many compliments, especially from my husband! �

If you want a stunning look, she’s your girl!

Thank you so much Cynthia!!!

Cynthia did an amazing job with my make up. It was exactly what I have dreamed of. She made me feel comfortable and even cheered me up as I was so nervous before walking down the aisle. She was very thoughtful in sending reminders and beauty tips before the big day. She even went to the church just to make sure that everything is fine before the ceremony starts. And the price was very reasonable. Thank you once again Cynthia!

Cynthia was great to work with. She does not hesitate to halt photos to make sure everyone in the wedding party was looking their best. She goes out of her way to pamper her customers and make them look as beautiful as possible.

I would definitely recommend her to a friend.


Cynthia was amazing. She was there all day through pictures and fixed anything that happened before the ceremony. She sat in on pictures to help make sure my hair stayed in place. She even helped poof up my dress. I would recommend her for anything.

Her prices are VERY reasonable!


Cynthia did my hair and makeup for my wedding in September. She was very professional and personable the whole way through. She used her extensive knowledge in the area of cosmetology to help me prepare weeks ahead of time to make sure my skin and hair looked the best it possibly could on my wedding day! That was so helpful! It was obvious that she's had a lot of experience as she worked with me to figure out what worked best for my hair and skin. The final product was exactly as I had imagined! I would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for a hair or makeup artist for a wedding or event.

She was a pleasure to work with!


Great talent and ideas!

Mrs Naughton did a fantastic job with hair and makeup

exactly what I wanted!


Cynthia did my hair and makeup for a military ball, she created the exact look I was going for and even suggested accessories to go with that would best accent my attire for the evening. She did an excellent job and I will definitely go back to her!
