Raves & Reviews
Michelle is great to work and has a wide range of talents. I greatly enjoy her funny yet professional attitude on set. She always comes prepared and can work well with direction or can bring her own vision to a project depending on what’s called for. After 20 years working together I would highly recommend her!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michelle over the last several years and she is always my FIRST go to person when it comes to Hair, Makeup & or Wardrobe.

I had the good fortune of working with Michelle on a corporate photo-shoot that I directed from a client perspective. Michelle’s wardrobe and makeup work was nothing short of outstanding.
Her knowledge, expertise and perspective were critical to the success of the project. She not only displayed the skills needed to complete the shoot, but also conveyed an understanding of the goals and strategy behind the project. She consistently articulated and implemented original approaches and changes that truly enhanced the the value of the finished product.
Michelle performed these responsibilities with a consistent level of professionalism, cooperation and ver importantly, a great sense of humor. In short, she was a pleasure to work with and a critical factor in thesuccess of the project.
Any enterprise that is considering utilizing Michelle for this type of work can congratulate themselves in
advance for being astute enough to pick the very best.

Having worked with many Hair and Makeup Artists over the years I know all too well that this position is so much more that making talent look good…Yes, the makeup part is first and foremost but then there is being pulled in multiple directions at once, dealing with talent and crew and doing your part so that the production stays on time and on budget.
I can say, without reservation that Michelle excels in all of these areas and over delivers on every project! She is and always will be one of my first calls because I know what I am getting and that is one of the best!

I’ve known and worked with Michelle off and on since the mid 90’s when I was living in Phoenix. I still hire her when I travel for work to Arizona. She has amazing skills with makeup, has a warm and genuine personality, a great sense of humor and is always on-time, prepared and ready to work. I highly recommend her for any project you might be considering her for.

For those of you who are having portraits for advertising stills or video created, you need to add Michelle Bengtson to your support team. Over the years I have found Michelle to be a great member of my team when I am photographing business people. She is amazing when working with business executives to make them comfortable in front of the camera. She is great with makeup for real people. You won’t regret working with her!
