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!

Jen sent one of her staff makeup artist named JUSTINA!!! She did a fantastic job making my daughter glamourous for her Senior PROM this past weekend. Jen and Justina were very professional and affordable! Jen sent a questionnaire to my daughter asking her to describe the look she ted to have for her Prom and Justina delivered!!! I would highly recommend these makeup professionals for any occasion where you want your sweetheart to be fabulous!!!!!

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!

Good afternoon... I just everyone to know if you haven't hired or tried Mrs. Tenia hands down she is the 'one'. She is by far the most professional, helpful, polite, skillfull, down to earth and just awesome to work with. My one on one session was insight, rewarding and most of all fun at the same time. I am looking forward to many more sessions and skill building with one of Baltimore's talented makeup artist. Thank you thumbtack for finding my match.

Mary K Engle made both me and my bridesmaids feel like models/rock stars. We looked so beautiful and we all were complimented throughout the night about how great we all looked! This is thanks to Mary K. Engle! She is exceptionally talented and will provide you with a beautiful look for your big day! She works closely with you to help you figure out your desired look. She is truly a talented makeup artist and I am so happy that she was a part of our wedding day!

Francisca is amazing! She was prompt and did a fantastic job. I couldn't believe how quick she was. She is so friendly and easy going and informs you what she's doing throughout the whole process. She's a sweet and extremely talented makeup artist! She even let me know what ringlights she uses when she takes photos. I go to the DC area often, so I will definitely be using her services again!

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! :)

Candice is a real pro from start to finish! We had a group of 6 that needed professional hair and makeup for our corporate headshots - and we have a range of hair and skin types. Candice is very responsive with communication, easy to work with and talented. We all loved our makeup and hair and looked great in our photos. I'd work with Candice again in a heartbeat!

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.

I could not have asked for a better expirience. All of my bridesmaids looked stunning and I got so many compliments about how incredible my makeup was. My make up also lasted all night leaving me worry free about running to the bathroom for touch ups. She was the only vendor who was on time and was so extremely professional and nice even through my pre-wedding meltdown. Thank you so much!!!

Summer did such an exceptional job on the make up for my wedding! Not only are her makeup skills top notch, she is also very down to earth and caring which is exactly what you need on your wedding day! She did makeup for myself, my 7 bridesmaids, my mother and my step mother and everyone looked absolutely stunning!!! The makeup also lasts ALL DAY LONG! You will not be disappointed by Summer's work ethic, bright personality and creative genius. The onsite makeup also created a relaxed atmosphere that I would highly recommend to every bride out there. Do yourself a favor and hire Summer for onsite makeup needs! She will blow you away, trust me! :)

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.
