Honest Transformations

Marla is fantastic! My appointment with her was fabulous, it was inspiring, and the confidence boost I needed as I transition into the newest version of myself. She was very kind and considerate. She has extensive knowledge and generously shared resources and ideas. I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment with Marla as the ultimate self-care. It's been nearly a month, and I am still loving my new look and playing with the guides she provided. I purchased a number of products and absolutely love them!

"After listening to my concerns and desire to enhance whatever I've got that worth enhancing, Marla was honest and straightforward in her recommendations. She explained each step and technique as she applied the products. No pressure to make a purchase, which sometimes makes me want to purchase ALL the products! She is a true professional and a truly honest individual. My recommendation: Do something for yourself and make the appointment!"

"I felt like a perfectly elevated version of myself."

"I love Marla!!! She came all the way to the Airbnb I had rented with my bridesmaids to do my makeup on my wedding day. She was so kind and so sweet to me on my frazzled morning of trying to get ready in time…she helped me relax and enjoy the moment. We had one trial before the big day and she listened so intently to what I wanted, and it could not have turned out more perfect. I felt like a perfectly elevated version of myself. Not to mention…the makeup stuck around all day (and all night) after lots of kisses, tears, and dancing (and more dancing). I wish I could give more than five stars.Thank you, Marla!"

"Ms. Hursig was awesome!! By awesome, I mean her personality, knowledge, and skill. Being that I have a darker complexion, she didn't force any product that didn't compliment my skin tone. The Glo products were just right. I didn't experience any irritation. Thank you, Marla. I truly enjoyed meeting you, and my makeover was exceptional!!"

"Whenever I’m in Marla’s chair it’s always a lovely experience. For someone who wears little makeup and is unsure when making changes of color or changing makeup products, Marla always points me in the right direction. She creates an enjoyable experience where you leave more confident about what colors to wear and how to apply makeup to make sure you are putting forth your most authentic self. She is professional, fun, and overall, just an amazing person. If you have an upcoming event and need to refresh your look and are unsure where to start, give Marla Hursig with The Honest Image a call."

"We all had an amazing experience!"

"The experience was truly amazing! I called when my mother decided she wanted some tips on doing her makeup. Marla scheduled not only her but me and my sister too. We all had an amazing experience and left with makeup created for each of us, which she explained as she was applying, and a handful of tips!! Exactly what my mom was looking for! "

"I booked the “honestly you make up session.” Wow!!! Marla is fantastic! She is so welcoming and kind. She provides a judgment-free zone, with lessons tailored to you and your wants/needs. She was extremely patient and showed me different makeup types and styles. If there was something that didn’t fit my taste, she was receptive and offered alternative options. My skin is super sensitive, and Marla didn’t pressure me into purchasing the products without taking the time to wear them out in the real world first. She gave me the natural look I was after, and I felt comfortable in my own skin! Do not hesitate, book your session!"

"Marla made me feel so beautiful! I went in incredibly uncomfortable and overwhelmed with makeup, and she taught me how to apply it so I looked like the best version of me. Interacting with her was like being with an old friend. She didn't pressure me into anything, and I definitely felt more confident walking out of there. I'm excited to apply what she taught me.”
