Ambereen's Wedding Reception

We are thrilled to introduce you to Ambereen, a stunningly beautiful client of ours, who recently had a small reception to celebrate her wedding. We provided our makeup services to her for the special day and could not have been more pleased! She is such a genuine person – so sweet, nice and fun-loving. In addition to working with her for her wedding festivities, we are also looking forward to having some photoshoots together in the future as she is an aspiring model!
As makeup and hair artists in greater Washington, DC, we just love the amazing variety of wedding styles that can be found in the area - from Traditional and Classic to Modern or Exotic. Given Ambereen’s South Asian wedding style, we made sure to collaborate with her to create the perfect look that captured her culture's customs and the richness of her theme. We love to personalize every job we do to bring out each client's desired looks. Thank you, Ambereen, for being such a joy to work with!

Kristyn's Charming Wedding

We recently provided makeup for beautiful bride, Kristyn, for her wedding in a historic home in the scenic horse country of Purcellville, VA. We focused on providing makeup that was elegant and natural. As part of this classic beauty look, we applied the Blend Technique to create a smooth, subtle, and fresh appearance, while still creating a defined romantic style. The weather was misty and a little rainy which was perfect for the use of our Blend Technique which can hold up in any weather conditions for long durations! We must say, Kristyn looked regal, vintage and Victorian, which was quite perfect for her charming country wedding! We are thrilled with how her makeup turned out and very much enjoyed working with her. All the best, Kristyn!

Beth & Rob's Lakeside Wedding

Beth married Rob in a beautiful lakeside ceremony in Frederick, MD this past summer. We provided Beth’s makeup for their special day and think she looked just stunning! Given the wedding was outdoors and in late summer, we used our Blend Technique to ensure her makeup was glamorous and radiant, but also very natural and smooth. Knowing that she would be out in the sun for hours, we made sure her makeup was long-lasting, and ensured her look, especially around the eyes and lips, was well-defined for natural-light photographs. We used sheer pigments on Beth, which can sometimes be complicated and tedious to apply, but was no problem for the team. And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention those gorgeous eyelashes – they went on for miles!

In addition to her beauty on the outside, Beth is also stunningly beautiful on the inside. We are so happy to have been able to work with such a wonderful, kind and fun-loving gal! Congratulations Beth and Rob. All the best to you!

Mary & Mary Got Married!

Mary and Mary got married! We are so thrilled to have been able to provide our makeup and hair services to Mary and Mary for their DC engagement photoshoot – and, most recently, for their wedding! 

We met Mary May while providing makeup for a “Women in Film and Video” event, the organization of which Mary May is immediate past president. We think very highly of this organization and its work – and their fabulous former leader as well!  We were so honored when she asked us to personally provide her makeup for the wedding.

Mary and Mary exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony at the Fairfax Hotel at Embassy Row. They were such a delight to provide our services to. Both are such loving, fun and charismatic individuals! Be sure to check out the photos below from their engagement shoot and their wedding day. Congratulations and best wishes, Mary and Mary!

Mark & Sally's Georgetown Wedding

We are beyond thrilled to have been a part of Mark Ein and Sally Stiebel’s beautiful wedding day. Mark is a DC businessman and the owner of the Washington Kastles, and Sally is a policy analyst. They exchanged their vows in a historic Georgetown home this past September. We provided our makeup services to Sally for the special day and think she looked unbelievable! We met Sally at the Washingtonian’s Unveiled event last year and are so happy we did. She is a wonderful client – very clever, open-minded and kind!

We just love this picture of Mark and Sally below – they both look so elated, and Sally looks radiant! It was such a pleasure to have been a part of this wonderful couple’s big day. Best wishes to Sally and Mark!
