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.

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 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!!

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.

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

She gave me a natural look with a soft glow in addition to a bold purple lip color. She was very sweet and she took time to adjust the makeup to my preferences. I will definitely ask her to do my prom makeup. Her prices were very cheap compared to other makeup artists. And the makeup done was outstanding. Extremely pleased.

Aubrielle was perfect! She applied makeup on my stepdaughter's face for her prom and she outshined each and every girl at the prom. Her look was nude with a splash of glam. Not only was she on time, applied the makeup well, and super nice, she educated me on the who, what, when, where, how, and why on applying and using makeup. Too bad she is located in Maryland because I am getting married in Chicago. I hope I am able to find someone just as good. In the meantime, going forward, I will be using her for any upcoming events. Thanks Aubry! :-)

Gul and her partner were both very responsible and showed up on time for my wedding.. I knew that I could count on them to be there for my special day. From the minute I met Gul, she continued to respond to my messages very quickly and gave very helpful advice and answered any questions that I had. They are both very good makeup artists and only use the best quality makeup and products.. You can count on them to make you look flawless on your wedding day, and they will put in as much time as you need them to get the job done. If you want a makeup artist who will do any makeup look you like, use high end products, and give you only the best advice possible then you can count on these two ladies 100%. They will not let you down. I think more people should know about NGK studio because these two girls truly are experts in the work that they do and they are very hardworking they will not let you down. I promise. I got so many compliments on how flawless I looked the day of my wedding, and how amazing my hair looked that day. People couldn't stop raving over the fact that I just looked like I walked out of a movie.. I was very tired that day too(functioning on only one hour of sleep and they were somehow able to transform me into a celebrity) You will look amazing too on your wedding day four sure=) =) I am usually very picky with who I decide to do my makeup, but there was just something about this girl that I could tell she would do a fantastic job and I was right. Spread the word, these girls are experts!!! Sincerely, Dana

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.

She listened to exactly what kind of look I wanted and constantly made sure I liked it. My makeup looked so flawless and she didn't even charge me half as much as other makeup artists. Definitely will be going back to her!
