I booked the Glam Squad for my wedding day and was very pleased with them! They arrived early and ensured that myself, my bridal party, mom, and mother in law were all happy with our hair and makeup. They worked hard for hours, and made every request come to life. I felt beautiful and my hair and makeup stayed in place/looked new all day!

I was incredibly pleased with the work of Ms Karen from Theblessedtouch Makeup Artistry. She did a fantastic job applying my makeup for my wedding. She understood my vision for my wedding day look and executed it perfectly. She was kind, professional, worked confidently and within the time frame allowed. I am so pleased I chose her to do my makeup for my wedding day. I would choose her again.

About

I am Kimberly Roberson, owner and lead artist of Beauty Soiree, LLC, and I am a professional beauty artist with over 11 years of experience. I specialize in bridal and special event, TV/commercial HD production, and editorial and runway hair and makeup. My work has been featured on Fox 5 (DC news), LA Fashion Week, Bluloft.com, and various TV outlets. I have a client list that includes (but not limited to) various high-profile public figures, such as the USDA and Project Runway winner, Seth Aaron Henderson. I enlist a team of highly-trained and highly-skilled makeup artists and hairstylists to provide beauty services for large event parties or projects. My lifelong objective is to make the world look and feel beautiful, one face at a time. I aim to enhance each individual client's natural beauty while creating a unique, distinctive look for any occasion. Do you have two left hands when it comes to makeup? Would you rather sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day with your family and friends while having your makeup applied and touched up, rather than worrying about a smudge here or there or a fading lipstick? Do you ever sit in front of the mirror and just wish you can have someone do your makeup for you? Do you have a special project that requires a skilled professional to help you look absolutely ravishing in front of a camera? Are you about to attend your high school reunion party and need to look hotter than 10 years ago? If you answered yes, then I am the makeup artist for you! Me and my team are available for the following: * Bridal makeup/bridal party * Makeup instruction courses (18 years old and under require parent/guardian supervision or permission) * Print * Runway * Special events/occasions/parties * TV/film Special bridal packages are also available. Our services are available locally in DC Metro and Northern Virginia. However, we will travel anywhere in the continental United States under paid contract.

About

Kevan is one of the most talented makeup artists I've ever worked with. Her approach and style choices are unlike any other; she knows exactly what works and what doesn't; and the final product of me on-camera (film/photography) was always top notch. Her collection is extensive and her knowledge of the business spans many years. She is an expert on products and brands due to her background. Not to mention--she is very personable, easy to joke around with and supportive. She is a must for all commercial/modeling/video/photography needs!

About

Mahnaz recently did my makeup for myself and 6 of my bridal party members. She was so pleasant to work with and everyone was really happy with her work, especially when we saw the photos! Not knowing exactly how I wanted to look on wedding day, or even how to describe the look I was after, she took the lead and created a face that was fresh and natural - and best of all - long-lasting throughout the night. I met with her twice for trial runs and she arrived on time with all the best equipment and supplies. On wedding day, she brought an assistant, which was a big help in keeping us on schedule. The price was 100% worth it. Mahnaz is fantastic to work with. She is current on trends, makeup lines & techniques and very professional on-site. I highly recommend her as an up & coming makeup artist that really caters to the bride. She has a very sweet personality with a calming presence about her too. Happy to send other brides her way in the future!

About

Hello All, Christin was my makeup artist for my wedding this past April (2015). Christin is awesome! From the first time we met during my trail I knew she was going to be GREAT to work with. She came to my house for the trail and was understanding when I had to change the date/time at the last minute. She answered all my questions throughout the entire process. She was honest and gave suggestions and reasons for her suggestions on color schemes and looks for my bridesmaids. The day of she was on time and stuck to the schedule, our makeup was on BEAUTIFUL! Her work speaks for itself she's AWESOME! Not only is she the BEST but on a personal note she's a genuinely good person. Her spirit and energy is positive which I definitely needed the day of. She kept reminding me that it was my day and she and everyone else was there to make it perfect, she's such a sweetheart. If you’re reading this review to determine if you should hire her my suggestion is you don’t need to look any further, YES she’s the one. She’s professional, knowledgeable and produces awesome work on top of being a GREAT person. I will definitely be working with Chris again! -Tamara P. #makeuponflick041715

About

“I hired Tamara in May 2011 for image consulting services, particularly focused on makeup application and skincare techniques. I always admired her style in these areas and once I found out she was a certified makeup artist, it was a no-brainer! Before the consultation, Tamara sent me a makeup and skincare assessment to determine my needs and desired outcome for our session. She was very patient with a relative newbie like me in determining how to use makeup to enhance my features. Tamara also gave me great advice on changes needed to my skincare regimen and products I could use to address my concerns. She took me step-by-step through the process of creating looks that could easily transition from day to evening. She made personalized recommendations on products and tools I could use on my own to achieve the looks she had created. Tamara answered all of my questions and remains available for follow up queries to this day. I was very pleased with how the consultation turned out and I've received several compliments on my new and improved makeup techniques. Your image is an integral part of your overall brand. Tamara gets this. Therefore, without hesitation, I would highly recommend her for any of your image consulting and brand management needs.”
