Val did my engagement session and my wedding in August and both times I was blown away by her work. She has a wonderful ability to understand your personal style while making you look absolutely flawless! She doesn't miss any detail either, on my wedding day before running out the door she made sure (if i wanted it and I did!) that she added just a hint of shimmer to my decolletage. I loved it! Her bubbly personality will make you feel relaxed and she is always professional and flexible. My bridesmaids and even my picky Mom were obsessed with their makeup too. You just cannot go wrong with Valerie! Thanks for everything Val!
Val was the absolute best!!! She drove out to Annapolis for my wedding and was so efficient and flexible. I had originally told her only four girls, but another bridesmaid ended up needing her makeup done and Val fit her in without any delay. Her products were fantastic–she offers spray foundation that lasted the entire day without any smudging. She was so accommodating to all of the craziness that morning and was a great laid back, calming presence. I especially appreciated how she really listened to what I wanted during the trial so that my makeup was perfect on my wedding day. I just got back my pictures and everyone looked so amazing thanks to Val! I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist, I would recommend her to anyone!!
Val did my makeup along with all my bridesmaids and mother of the bride. She knows all the tricks to make you look your absolutely best on your wedding day. I had individual eyelashes which totally popped my eyes and best of all it felt like I wasn't wearing anything! She comes fully prepared with nearly a thousand different products and shades. Val is professional, does amazing work and is a calming presence on what can be a hectic day. Without a doubt I would recommend her 1000 times again and again. The proof is in the photo’s. Definitely check her out!
Valerie did my make up on my wedding day and it was amazing! I don’t wear heavy make up and was nervous about being washed out in pictures without it. She was able to maintain my natural look and keep me looking great in all my pictures. She balanced her professionalism and understanding (of a crazy bride on her wedding day) perfectly. I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed.
I used Val for my wedding and she was nothing short of amazing! I actually had to have 2 make-up trials because I changed my mind over how I wanted to look on my wedding day and Val worked me into her very busy schedule to make sure I was happy with how I looked. My mom, mother-in-law, and all of my bridesmaids used her as well and everyone was THRILLED with how they looked! Val is nothing short of amazing and I would definitely recommend her to everyone, particularly brides looking for someone to do their wedding make-up!
I heard about Valerie through my Matron of Honor and I went and had my trail run with her. I was absolutely impressed from that day moving forward. I hired Valerie to do my engagement photo makeup as well as my wedding day makeup. He work on both occasions was absolutely outstanding. All of my bridesmaids looked so beautiful! My mom even loved her makeup, which she never does. Valerie is so professional and does absolutely flawless work. I wish she could do my makeup every day! I highly recommend her for ANY occasion!
Valerie is hands down the best makeup artist in the DC area! She did me, my whole bridal party, my mother and grandmother, as well as trials for my mother and me before the wedding, and I can’t rave enough about her work! She’s fabulous at asking questions about everyone’s individual beauty style to make sure we all looked and felt our very best! I’m totally planning to hire her again for any formal event when I want to look magazine-cover perfect all day. She’s the best!!!!
I was going for a glam look for a boudoir shoot and Val completely captured the look I wanted. She gave me gorgeous smokey eyes that looked absolutely amazing in all of my pictures!Prior to my photo shoot I had seen alot of Val’s work, her before and after pics and have always been impressed with her talent. I was also impressed that Val asked me about any allergies, coming from someone who has had issues with allergies that really meant so much to me! She’s very professional, personable and detail oriented.I can’t thank Val enough for doing such a phenomenal job. She’s amazing, my makeup was flawless! I would highly recommend Val to everyone that wants to look amazing, she truly is the best makeup artist there is.
Valerie is so amazing!! She is so talented and personable and really listens to what you want to look like on your wedding day! Even my bridesmaids (who did not have trials with Valerie before the big day) thought their makeup was absolutely perfect! They all felt so beautiful while still feeling like they looked like themselves (a few of them don’t wear any makeup on a regular basis). The makeup she uses feels so good on your face and lasts ALL day! And it looks great in photos and in person (and close up!). Your skin will look so flawless! Valerie came to the hotel where we were staying to help us get ready and it was so much fun spending the morning with her – everyone loved her so much and had a blast with her! I can’t wait to find another excuse to have her do my makeup!!
