Teresa is HANDS DOWN AN AMAZING ARTIST. It’s so lucky that she is on thumbtack! Her reputation in DC is impeccable, and her portfolio is worth checking out even if you’re not looking for a makeup artist! Teresa is not only talented but super kind, very information about each step/process she was doing on my face, and after only showing a couple “inspo” pics to her, made me completely match the glam vibe I was going for, specifically suited to my coloring. I will be calling Teresa for everything now!!!!

Details: Special occasion • 26 - 44 years old • Airbrushed makeup (spray tool) • False lashes • 1 person • My home, venue, etc.

Teresa is a true professional!! I was so pleased with the makeup she provided me for a family photo shoot. She understood exactly the kind of makeup look I was going for and delivered! I was so pleased with the end results! She even adjusted her schedule last minute and was able to arrive 30 min earlier than scheduled which we appreciated so much! I would definitely use Teresa again for makeup for a special event!

I could not have been happier with DC Elite Image. Teresa was accommodating (came to my home to do my makeup for a holiday party), super friendly and professional to work with - and I simply loved my results! I would recommend her without hesitation to any individual or organization needing a professional makeup artist. And I will certainly be a repeat customer!

Teresa is the absolute best! From beginning to end everything went perfect! She did makeup for 4 bridesmaid and Mother of the groom. We all had our own style, and Teresa did an awesome job creating the look we were going for. Time was not an issue at all. She knew exactly how much time she would need for each person, and suggested she come a little earlier than planned to make sure we weren't rushing. Our makeup was still flawless well after the wedding ended. We loved having Teresa there for such an important day! Thanks for everything Teresa! Can't wait to work with you again!

FAQs

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Look for someone who has not only good work experience in what you are requesting, but also will provide you a high level of service. Doing great work is important, but also providing a high level of customer service to clients is what makes true professionals successful.

    Working in the service industry can be very rewarding, but also can be difficult. Be nice to your service professionals! We work hard to please you!
