Where do I start? I submitted two separate TT requests to find a makeup artist and hair stylist to help make three promotion models look their best for my company's photo and video commercial shoot. When Jen responded to my request for a hair stylist, not only did she provide a quote for the service as well as a very beautiful work portfolio, she also told me that she and her team known as the Glam Squad did both hair and makeup. "A Mobile Glam Squad"...... What? I didn't request a team, but a team was the answers to my prayers because they were able to save an incredible amount of time for 6 different sets/scenes at the studio. Jen is so professional and laid out plan on how she and her team would apply their beautiful makeup and do their hair. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome and will definitely be working with JM Designz for all of my company's makeup and hair needs in the future.

Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

"Mimi is fantastic and a true artist. She body painted me when I attended Awesome Con, a gathering where everyone dresses in costume. I explained to her my concept, a human pop art piece in a comic book style with the bright colors, some texture, and the word POW! across my chest. She exceeded my expectations and we had fun with it. She explained how everything worked and how long it would take and the price was a bargain. She is extremely talented and I would highly recommend her! The paint held up for nearly twelve hours. I will be back again soon for more."

Erin was a really nice, talented makeup artist! She did a great job with the dark smokey eyes I wanted, was on time, and communicated quickly when I emailed her. My only suggestion would be to let people know what products you can offer for certain skin types- I have sensitive/acne prone skin (I had asked what she had and got a broad answer of "everything"). I ended up doing my foundation prior to her arrival Bc I did not know if she had one I could use and my skin breaks out at the sight of comogenic formulas! But overall she was great. I would use her again. Thanks Erin!

To the best makeup artist on this planet. The one thing I love most about Erica is that the first thing I said to her was that "I want to look like me in my pictures". She not only made me look like me but even better." I have had my face done several times by Erica and never ever was I not satisfied. Her work, and gift is OUTSTANDING.

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!

I never normally write reviews but I was so impressed. She made all of us feel special and beautiful. Most makeup artist only do makeup one way( which I hate) but Jaydes makeup capibilties and talents were able to stretch from my daughter (13) who's makeup was very beautiful and age appropriate to my Great grandmother(81) who's makeup was light and elegant. But most importantly my husbands jaw was on the floor. Lol.. THANK YOU SOO MUCH.
