JWCCC's Night of Comedy Fundraiser

Congratulations to the Junior Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase for their very successful Night of Comedy Fundraiser! A mix of stand up comedy, improv and storytelling, the show was a true hit and included DC’s own Melissa Leebaert, Vijai Nathan, and David Morey. We were so happy to provide our makeup services to the talent, and were proud to be a part of such a wonderful cause.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase is a local nonprofit who unites women in friendship and volunteer service for the good of the community and beyond. Interested in learning more? For more information on the organization, be sure to check out their website

Spring 2014 Bridal Looks by Carola Myers!

As promised, here are a few more photos from the A Chic Affair Bridal Fashion show! For the Spring of 2014 Carola has led in a popular trend of makeup and hair that mirror the retro looks of the 50’s – specifically those of the iconic Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Her look is a very classy, yet glamorous one that personifies the timeless American beauty. As you can see in the images below, the “Grace Kelly” look emphasizes heavily on the eyes and eyebrows, and uniquely finishes with a sheer vibrant red or rosy pink lips. We wanted to recreate this look for A Chic Affair’s runway show – and loved the results!

Congrats to Petal's Edge on 10th Anniversary!

Congratulations to Petal’s Edge on their 10th Anniversary! To celebrate this milestone, the local florist company hosted a fantastic event at the Lorien Hotel in Alexandria. We were thrilled to be an event partner for the evening and were so glad to help them celebrate! Petal’s Edge, which is based in Old Town Alexandria, has been a key player on the DC bridal scene for the past decade. And rightfully so! Their work is stunning – you’ll definitely want to check out the gallery of their various arrangements and designs with everything from rustic and romantic looks to classic or vintage!

Congratulations again to Petal’s Edge – we can’t wait to see what the next ten years hold for you!

A Chic Affair at the Long View Gallery

We had such a wonderful time at A Chic Affair last weekend. With hundreds of truly “chic” modern city brides in attendance and a venue as beautiful as DC’s contemporary Long View Gallery, it’s no wonder we enjoyed the “affair” so much! We loved providing the hair and makeup looks for the models for the event’s fashion show and cannot wait to show you all of the different looks we created. One of the area’s best photographers, Rodney Bailey was there to document the day and did a phenomenal job (see a few of the fabulous photos below.)

As always, we must give a shout out to all those involved in making the day a huge success! Thank you to Rachael and the whole RGI Events team for their help in putting on the show. And of course, thank you to Shirley and Leslie for being such wonderful Carola Myers team representatives!

We will have another post with more details and photos from the event to share soon. Stay tuned!
