"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."

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!!

She did not only my makeup but all of my bridesmaids as well as my mother. She is able to tailor everyone's makeup to what they want whether its over the top or super subtle! Book her now before she's taken :)

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 am so happy that I hired Anna to do all the hairstyling for my wedding. I loved her work! She stayed on schedule (7 hairstyles + my makeup in 4 1/2 hours), was very responsive to my requests, and made me feel beautiful for my wedding day. She did my makeup in addition. I don't usually wear much makeup and she did a nice, natural look that felt really comfortable.

Judith and Jossi are kind and professional, and it was fun to have my trial hair and makeup done by them. I only had vague ideas of what I wanted for my updo and makeup, but these artists did their magic and I was amazed by the outcome. I trust them completely with my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup on my wedding day.

Blanche's makeup skills are top notch. I signed up for the makeup tutorial and she was extremely patient and a very effective teacher. She could be a celebrity makeup artist - that's how good she is. I can't wait to sign up for another session with her.

Another secret from my #GlamSquad : It’s always a joy for Krista to beat this face. #ThatGirlGotBlessedHands. But let me tell y’all, K.Nicole MakeUp taught us how to accomplish a “light beat”. Ladies, YOU absolutely need to know how to do this yourself & it will save you so much money in the long run. Krista is sweet, personable and so easy to work with. Oh, and did I say overall AMAZING?! She also makes you feel so comfortable which is really important. Learn what products (skincare + makeup) are best for your skin type, how to apply & even go product shopping with Krista. Tell her Pri sent you💕
