Cosmo Couture Gets Exotic

If you haven’t heard of Cosmo Couture, you’ll want to check it out – immediately. Every year, this fashion-forward organization hosts a fundraising event in the greater DC metro area centered around a collaboration between local Architecture and Interior Design firms and their manufacturing partners to create garments reflecting a given theme. This year’s theme was inspired by the exotic birds of DC’s National Zoo! We had an AWESOME time working with Cosmo Couture model, Dana, to give her a wild, exotic bird look. 

Want to learn more about Cosmo Couture? Check out this video from last year’s event inspired by Raymond Saunders’ Red Star painting.

The Perfect Fall Glow

Looking for makeup that will give you that perfect fall glow? Check out this look we provided for actress, Natalie Portman, for her speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's 2012 Elie Wiesel National Tribute Dinner. We think the smoky eyes, rosy cheeks, and hints of gold perfectly capture the essence of fall!

Our Blend Technique

Beautiful Anne Marie, pictured below, needed bridal makeup that could withstand all the heat and humidity of her outdoor vineyard wedding. We chose to use “The Blend Technique” to make sure her makeup remained flawless throughout her ceremony, her wedding photos, and into the evening’s celebrations. The Blend Technique is a very high level combination of classic traditional artistry spliced together with a more modern airbrush styling. We think she looked absolutely radiant!

Art Smith // Celebrity Chef

We are delighted to present another example of our makeup services in the production industry. Earlier this summer, we provided makeup for celebrity chef, Art Smith, for his feature on local ABC 7 TV news story introducing his new book “Art Smith’s Healthy Comfort: How America’s Favorite Celebrity Chef Got It Together, Lost Weight, and Reclaimed His Health.” It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mr. Smith. We think his new book conveys a very positive message about healthy living and we encourage you all to take a look!

Working with DC Professional Andrea Hailey!

Andrea Hailey, experienced political consultant & member of Washington Life Magazine’s prestigious “The Young and Guest List," attended a swearing-in event at the State Department last week, and asked us to provide her makeup for the very important day. We are always excited to work with strong, educated women who are paving the way in the political and professional spectrums. Andrea has worked on many campaigns in multiple roles – as a campaign manager, a political fundraiser, and even as a director of campaign advertisements! We think it is so awesome that so many beautiful, young women, like Andrea, have brought a new wave of energy to DC – and look great while doing it!  Congratulations again, Andrea. Best of luck!

Major Nicole Malachowski & The Smithsonian's 75th Anniversary Film

We are honored to have worked with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to help create the Smithsonian NASA Museums 75th Anniversary film. We provided our makeup services to all one-on-one interviewees featured in the video. To ensure a camera-ready look, we focused on providing makeup that reduces shine and promotes a healthy, glowing appearance.

Major Nicole Malachowski, a featured interviewee and the first female Thunderbird pilot in the United States Air Force (pictured below), was an absolute pleasure to work with. We are such a fan of supporting strong, smart women like her! As a leader in her industry, she is an inspiration to women everywhere who are pursuing their dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem.

We’d like to extend a very warm thank you to the prestigious Smithsonian institution, Rhed Pixel, and all of the incredible men and women who shared their stories throughout this film. As a DC-based company, we are proud to have played a part in this historic national endeavor!
