Working with Winstead Barnes and his staff completed our amazing Miss United States experience. Winstead was very accommodating and responsive. We received Kristine Kaliebe as our hair/makeup artist and she was so fantastic we requested her the next day. She saw the vision we were aiming for and perfected it with her skill and talent. My daughter and I highly recommend working with this team and we will definitely use them again if the opportunity is present.

As we approached our wedding day on Oct 17th my then fiancé and I thought it would be nice to have someone do my Best woman and flower girl's makeup. After looking at a few makeup artist I loved how Winstead Studio stepped forward and was immediately available. Our makeup artist arrived at the hotel on-time and what amazing work. Both looked great and I couldn't have asked for better. Thank you so much Winstead Studios.

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.

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!

I can't believe it's taken me this long to sing Erin's praises! She was the second makeup artist we contacted for wedding make up (don't even ask about the first one). Erin was calm and cool and funny. She put us at ease during the practice round and was even better on the big day! She completely understood the look we wanted and her work was impeccable. We looked like our best, youthful selves and it was the perfect start to the best day of our lives.

I am so glad that I hired Addi as my makeup artists for my wedding! Not only is she incredibly talented, but so CALM, accommodating, and flexible - it can be hard and stressful to organize a large group of people on such an important day, but in Addi's hands our morning went off without a hitch and everyone loved their final looks! During my trial, she made sure we settled on a look I was 100% comfortable with and confident in, but also that she knew would photograph well and have staying power. Everyone's makeup lasted through a full day of pictures, an evening wedding, and a night of dancing. I can't recommend her enough - you won't be sorry you hired Addi!

I simply can't rave enough about Makeup by Addi. I received the most professional, kind and personable service and couldn't be happier with the results. Addi really took the time to make sure everything was to my satisfaction while constantly making sure I was feeling comfortable. I have gotten professional makeup done by Makeup artists in the past- and I can say that Makeup by Addi is by far the best I have had gotten! I highly recommend Addi to anyone who wishes to look and feel fabulous for a special event!

Addi has incredible talent! Of all my past makeup artists, Addi was the first that I was able to sit back and trust to do my make up without my guidance. Everything she did looked neat and never over the top. I showed her a picture of the look I was going for, and she knew how to make it look even better. I recommend hiring Addi if you would like a classy and glamorous look!

First let me say, Tenia is beyond a gifted makeup artist. I arrived late to my venue and stressed out. When I entered the room, a hot mess, Tenia was setup, patiently waiting for me. She calmed me down and did her magic; as they say, “My face was beat for the gods”. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself. I cannot thank Tenia enough for making me look and feel like a Queen. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

Lynette did a wonderful job with my makeup for my 21st birthday. She took me outside of my normal comfort zone without overdoing it too much. Even though the party was a masquerade, the makeup showed under the mask very well and when I took my mask off for the night (after sweating) it really held up nicely. After she did my makeup, other people in the house wanted her to do theirs and my aunt is actually considering hiring her for another occasion. She does an amazing job and his highly recommended!

I hired Esha to do my wedding makeup in addition to my six Bridesmaids, two Junior Bridesmaids, Flower Girl and both Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom and I could not have asked for a better makeup artist to take the lead on getting us glammed up and ready for the day! I will be the first to admit that I am the WORST at portraying what I want in my look when it comes to makeup but that didn't phase Esha at all. My big thing was that I wanted to look natural and still very me.. as a girl who doesn't wear a ton of makeup every day that can sometimes be a little harder when you get in front of someone who knows makeup only because my idea of "not a lot of makeup" and a professional artist's may not be the exact same interpretation but Esha and I got on the same page from the very start. Esha completely nailed it and brought my whole look together. I would 100% recommend a trial. I did my trial the morning of my bridal shower to see how I liked it, how it held up and what changes I wanted to make. Esha was so wonderful and open to my notes I made at the conclusion of my bridal shower day. I wanted a full to see it all and really pinpoint what I liked and what I would want to see a little differently. For example, I went with certain pictures for the trial and then realized my own ignorance in not understanding what I showed her was more of the smokey eye look.. so looking back on pictures from my bridal shower, my makeup looked incredible but it was too dark for what I wanted as my wedding day look. Following up with Esha was a breeze and I sent her a few more pictures and she instantly got on board with what I wanted.. explaining the difference in the looks I showed her. To me they looked the same until she pointed out what wasn't! The trial was SUPER helpful because I tried the airbrush and a certain lip color but the morning of the wedding I went with HD makeup (because I was LOVING how my bridesmaids were looking) and completely went a different route with lip color. Neither of those changes threw Esha off at all. She worked efficiently and was extremely calm and laid back the entire morning.. the high emotions of the morning didn't fluster her at all. For all my bridesmaids she made sure I told each of them that if they didn't like something, to speak up and she would very happily change it because her main concern was us feeling comfortable in our looks, not being personally offended by someone wanting to change something. From the mothers to bridesmaids, to my young junior bridesmaids and tiny flower girl.. she knew how to do each age and skin complexion without fail. I have to thank Esha for her patience with me because the week of the wedding I had a "panicked bride" moment and she handled it all with poise and reassurance that all was good. It rained on my wedding day (ALL day), there were tears (but she teaches you how to cry and not ruin your makeup, bonus!!) and I sweated my tush off on the dance floor and then continued the party downtown Annapolis and let me tell you this.. my makeup was as flawless at 3:00 in the morning as it was at 12 noon when my look was complete... just as Esha promised it would be! Cannot thank you enough for getting me wedding-day-ready and all 11 of the best women in my life looking and feeling amazing! You've got my recommendation and I look forward to having an excuse to hire you to do my makeup again in the future! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! When the first two words that come out of your groom's mouth when he sees you is "Oh Shit".. you know you're looking drop dead GORGEOUS! Wouldn't have happened without you, Esha!! I looked like a bride and felt like my true self. That was a major win in my book! *I have attached two photos taken off our online gallery.. They are not the full resolution though.. still waiting on our thumb drive so I apologize for that! Esha, I can send you full resolution pictures if you would like so you can share them later! :)

Esha's makeup for all the girls was outstanding. Everyone received airbrushed makeup and false eyelashes that looked flawless and natural. I had an afternoon ceremony and nighttime reception and the makeup lasted all day and night. I was on a tight budget and Esha worked with me, and I feel like got great value for our money. Esha's sister-in-law, Harmesh, did hair styling for some of the girls (I hired a second hair stylist because I had a large bridal party). At first I was nervous about the way the girls hair would turn out - I did 2 hair trials with Harmesh and she just wasn't seeing my vision. She used a hair crimper for volume and way too much hair spray, I just wasn't happy with the trials. But I was so impressed with Harmesh the day of the wedding. She did an amazing job, all the girls hair looked wonderful. No one's hair looked too stiff or crimped. Harmesh was scheduled to style 5 girls, but there was a time crunch at the end and she did a 6th girls hair, no questions asked or hesitation. I would recommend GlamNGlow Makeup for anyone who is on a budget but still looking for great value. I think its important to be direct about the look you want (and don't want), and Esha and Harmesh will work very hard to get it right. Thank you for being so flexible, professional and for doing a wonderful job!

Esha and her team made me feel beautiful and super glam on my wedding day. They patiently curled a million of my 26 inch extensions and made me look amazing. My ladies were all super happy with the way their hair and makeup turned out. I loved that she did my makeup the way I like and didn't try to give me a natural look like a lot of makeup artists do! I got compliments all night!

Mia was amazing! I hired her to do makeup for the bridesmaids in my wedding. I was a bit nervous about booking someone from the internet without meeting her for such an important day - so we arranged an in home trial. She came to me, did my makeup and was awesome. She has a great sense of humor and definitely calmed my fears. On the day of the wedding, she showed up calm and prepared - my bridal party had all different types of skin tones and facial types and she made each one look beautiful. She did lashes on those that wanted them and it made SUCH a huge difference in the pictures. She was a wonderful makeup artist and I would definitely recommend hiring her for your event!!

My purpose for employing Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services was for an upcoming dance showcase. What stood out from the initial start of gathering proposals was the rapid response in professional messaging and the pleasantness in responding to my questions on the phone. Another area that caught my eye was the website which reflected the breakdown on services and the before/after photos. Our initial trial, I felt comfortable, she respectfully listens and decipher at times the direction I wanted to go with my makeup. Jayde wanted to make sure we had the look I was trying to attain so, the day of the event it would be as simple as 1, 2, 3 done! During the whole process, she offered flexibility when it came to scheduling and shared ‘DIY tips’. It was truly a very calm, stress-free day… She made me look and feel ‘Picture Perfect’ and the makeup lasted throughout the whole event. She truly did an amazing job and would recommend Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services to all. AA

The look was natural with just the right embellishments and it was airbrush makeup. Jamie is a skilled technician and provides wonderful service!

Jamie was always on point with my makeup. She always made sure to ask me first about what kind of look I was going for and nailed it every time! I wouldn't trust anyone else doing my makeup other than her. I recommend her 100%!

I was going to a Halloween party as Michael Jackson from "remember the time". Ms. Ri not only hooked my face up making me shades lighter but she also contoured my nose. I received so many comments about my look being genuine.

Ruben was amazing and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a make-up artist. He did make-up for me and 2 of my girls for my wedding. We received many complements on what a great job he did. The make up lasted all day...I didn't want to take it off by the end of the night 😉

She is very flexible around you schedule and does a great job. This was my first time asking her to do my makeup and I will definitely be asking her again. She creates a comfortable and friendly environment. She did my makeup for my Prom and Graduation and everyone loved it. I was getting compliments the entire time. If you want you face beat and look better than the girls who go to Mac, Then Patrice is the one to go to. Book her now she does excellent work for reasonable prices.

Patrice was amazing! She did my makeup for prom and I am someone who has never worn anything more than eyeliner and lipstick. She created a very natural look for me and I received tons of compliments. If I ever need my makeup done again I wont hesitate to choose her.

I have had the pleasure of using Emily's makeup services for my client's when I needed help with a wedding party. Emily was punctual and professional and her work was fantastic. She listens to what the client wants and translates their vision into her work. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

Emily is a true artist, and her talent and work are absolutely amazing. I’ve had my makeup done professionally by four other make up artists. But no ones work comes close to Enilys. Once you go to her and see the results, you will never go to anyone else! I highly recommend her!!!

I always feel so sophisticated and special when Valeska cuts my hair. Valeska first cut my hair over a year ago and until she got her hands on my hair, I had never received so many compliments or inquiries into who cut my hair. Look no further - Valeska is an amazing find! My only fear is that she will soon become so popular it will be hard to get an appointment, but that is a cross I'm willing to bear since it means more people with gorgeous hair walking around DC!

Finding a color expert is no small feat. I’ve been searching for 4 years in the DC area and am happy to say that Valeska is a godsend. Her expertise is a blessing to any blond looking to have fabulous hair. She is a 10 plus! I am excited to be able to have her help me get my hair back to healthy and the right color. Thank You!

It was a week and a half before my wedding day. My hair and makeup team (family friends) bailed on me last minute due to work (they had to fly in for the event).I came across Mavi Bridal Atiler. They were totally booked but i begged them. They were kind enough to squeeze me in for a trial although it was after hours. I loved my hair and make up. The master hair/makeup artist Minay was very patient, understood what I wanted she made some recommendations and poof.... I felt like Cinderella after her fairy godmother worked her magic. Even though she was booked for an event on my wedding day. Minay and her team was able to come to my event to my event and work their magic on me and my bridesmaids. She is so quick, has attention to detail and very focused. She saved me. I give Mavi Bridal 10 star. Thank you.

Sara did an amazing job doing makeup for me and my bridesmaid on the day of my wedding. (2.16.2017) She met us at the venue (we were able to get ready on site) on time, and worked carefully but yet at a great pace; she did all seven of us (plus a mother who wanted a small touch up) in about 3 hours and 30-45 mins. She brings good treats with her for the party to munch on while getting ready and music, so we were able to have fun despite the hustle and bustle going on to decorate and get the venue ready! She also uses completely natural makeup, so anyone can have their face done. My sister is very sensitive and has reactions to a lot of mainstream products, but she was fine after Sara did her makeup and the rest of the day! Our professional pictures are not in yet but I have a few here from one of my bridesmaids that give a good look at some of our faces. My friends are already very beautiful women but Sara transformed them into glamour models! I would highly recommend her! Thank you again Sara for your service :)
