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.

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!

Amazing makeup work!!! The makeup stayed put all day long and I looked exactly as I wanted! When I had a communication error on whether the flower girl would wear makeup or not, she stepped in and offered makeup for my maid of honor instead! And she also helped with the bridal photoshoot! Above and beyond expatations! ❤️ I would totally recommend her for any special event and would hire again! :) ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you!!! C:

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!

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!!

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!

Being a makeup lover myself, I knew that when choosing a makeup artist for my wedding I couldn't choose just anyone. All I can say is that Roma is truly amazing!! At my trial, she took the time to ask questions and find out exactly what I was looking for. As soon as she was done, I knew I wanted her to do my makeup for my wedding. When the wedding day came, she traveled to my hotel suite and did the makeup for myself as well as 5 others. She showed up early, stayed 100% on schedule, and was a true professional from start to finish. She is enthusiastic, funny, and so easy to talk to. My makeup came out AWESOME and I received so many compliments. I can't thank Roma enough for making me feel beautiful on such an important day. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her myself for future events!

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 😉

ERICA IS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL,PATIENT, AND KIND. She has always kept her word with me as well as with clients that I have referred to her. Everyone that I know raves about her skills, and shes highly recommended in the MD DC VA area. Another important factor is that Erica is always on time. I have seen her do bridal faces, consultations,teach classes to even doing makeup for beauty pagents in which the contestant won for *Most beautiful Smile*. Erica will definitely paint your face and make you feel even more beautiful than you though you'd ever feel before.She also has a large variety of makeup which gears towards all skin types and shades. For example, I have sensitive skin, so each time she applies my makeup its very light and doesn't even feel like its there..all while lasting throughout the day. I highly recommend Erica to anyone that may feel skeptical about breaking out or not feeling their best after makeup has been applied. You'll definitely be getting more than your money is worth.

She did a great job for my wedding makeup. Always on time. Reasonable price. Flexible. I would admit that she got the talent! I told her that I wanted lighter makeup than the trail, and she used the right amount of everything that was definitely perfect. Everyone said I was absolutely beautiful on my special day. Thank you very much, Jeanette.

I hired Tish to do my makeup for my wedding. At the consultation she did an AMAZING job but out did herself for the big day. She was willing to travel and made everyone feel comfortable. I would recommend her services to everyone. She is a GREAT makeup artist!!!

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.

This is the first time I've had makeup done professionally for a black tie event. I don't wear much makeup so am always concerned I will end up looking overdone. Kali was professional, focused on what I wanted and provided suggestions along the way. The final product was amazing and I felt she set me up for a glamorous evening, while allowing me to feel comfortable in my own skin. I would recommend Kali without hesitation.

I've gotten my makeup done by makeup artists on a few occasions, and I picked Maria at Make Up Artist Pro Group after my cousin used her for her wedding last year. I was really impressed with how my makeup turned out, and she was incredibly sweet and calming to the bride, which I knew would be an important quality to calm my own wedding day jitters. Since I had recently gotten engaged, I made sure to get her card, and called her a few weeks later when I set my wedding date to book her. When my wedding day came, she arrived early and was really pleasant. She kept me feeling at ease and stayed right on schedule throughout. It was clear that she keeps her kit and her supplies sanitary, and the products in the kit (other than the few products of my own that I preferred she use) are of great quality. They even gave me the option to purchase some of the products for touch ups. Throughout the whole process, she was very professional. I had a lot of specific ideas and requests for my big day makeup, and she was comfortable trusting my preferences for certain products. My makeup looked gorgeous. Totally perfect and more flawless than I ever could have imagined. My three bridesmaids looked absolutely beautiful. Most importantly, my makeup photographed beautifully. I could not have been happier. I'm so glad that my cousin found Makeup Artist Pro Group first, and that I decided to book them for my special day.

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.
