"Kristin did my hair and makeup for my wedding on 11/8/15. After a terrible experience at one of the only beauty salons in the town we got married in, I was in full panic mode with just over a month until the wedding and no one to help! I got Kristin’s information from a friend and emailed her with my situation. She was so prompt in getting back to me and we were able to schedule my trial right away! She was willing to work with my schedule and come to my house in Alexandria on a Sunday evening. I honestly do not even know where to start with how much I loved her. As someone who wears makeup *maybe* once a year, it’s always a challenge to find someone who doesn’t make me look too overdone. Kristin absolutely made me look and feel beautiful. I gave her a general idea of what I wanted – natural makeup – and a general idea of what I didn’t want – Burt Reynold’s moustache eyebrows – showed her a photo of the hair style I wanted to base mine off of and she got started on working her magic! She was so professional and so thorough, she listened to any and all of my concerns and she made me laugh through the entire trial and the morning of my wedding. It was like getting done up by a good friend who just happened to be a professional makeup artist! Kristin also traveled two and a half hours to my venue on my wedding day, at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning. My hair and makeup held up throughout the entire day and night. Looking at photos from the beginning of the day through the end of the night, I still looked like it had just been done! Most of all, and I really feel like this is worth repeating, she made me feel beautiful. I will absolutely be recommending her to anyone I know getting married or going to any formal event and will absolutely be calling her if I ever need my hair and makeup done for anything!" -Amanda Sorenson

"Kristin was amazing! My makeup was flawless and she gave me EXACTLY what I was looking for. She is very professional and my makeup lasted the entire night through my wedding (through the tears, sweat, kisses, everything). I will recommend her to anyone that is seeking a professional make up artist no doubt." -Carlee Stanley

"You will not be disappointed. Kristin is amazing! She is professional, friendly and trustworthy with an incredible personality! What a bride really needs is someone who can keep her smiling throughout the chaos. And Kristin did just that. Her passion for her craft shows in her flawless work. She responds quickly to all communication and has a wide network of professionals to assist in other services. I planned my entire wedding in just 3 1/2 months. I live in California, and the wedding was in Virginia so I had to do this cross country! I began by posting on Facebook that I needed a makeup artist in the DC area. A friend recommended Kristin. When I met her for my trial makeup, she came with a big friendly smile and a huge makeup collection in a large roller case. The friendship began! Kristin was the only makeup artist that I met with and when you meet her, you’ll know why. A month before my wedding I lost my hair dresser, my wedding decorator, and my wedding dress vendor had no clue as to when my dress would arrive! Kristin regularly texted me to check in and when I told her my problems she would text me back and forth, offering help and advice and sometimes just a friendly ear. She made me laugh, put me at ease and helped me find the vendors I needed in the nick of time. My bridesmaids loved her! All their skin tones were a bit different but with Kristin’s talent and expert eye for color and dimension they looked gorgeous. She stayed for the entire event and made sure that I was always picture ready. And she partied as well! I have photos of her hugging and dancing with my sister! She became more than just my makeup artist; she became my friend. For those of you in search of an expert makeup artist as well as a calming energy in a chaotic arena, this is your girl. Kristin, thank you so much! You made my wedding beautiful and reassured me that within so much drama and chaos there are still beautiful souls in this world. I'm so glad we met." -Mala Cannuscio

"Kristin was absolutely amazing. She was extremely responsive anytime I reached out to her regarding information, pricing, timeline, etc. I’ve always been very low maintenance when it comes to makeup and was nervous about doing a full face of makeup considering I only ever do my eyes and didn’t want to cover up the freckles on my face. She reassured me that a full face was important for pictures but that she would not cover up my freckles. At my trial, I showed her several pictures of the look I was going for and that’s exactly what she did! On my wedding day, there were a few slight tweaks I wanted to make and again, she delivered exactly what I asked for. She also did my hair and I absolutely loved it. I had reached out to several other hair & makeup places before finding Kristin and her rates were by far the best I came across and I’m so glad I found her. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and that’s all thanks to Kristin!" -Heather Sowers

"Kristin is one of the most professional, punctual, prepared, and talented makeup artist I've ever had the pleasure of working with! As a beauty professional it's hard to find others who work similar to yourself, but Krisitin is incredible! I can always count on her for any wedding or event and can trust that anyone I refer to her is in good hands"  - Lauren Meisel - Hair & Makeup Artist


"Kristin is amazing to work with and does a fantastic job! Highly recommend!" - Venessa Ramirez - Vness Photography


“Kristin is so incredibly talented and an amazing team player. I coordinated a photoshoot in collaboration with many Maryland locals and Kristin was the perfect fit for our MUA. I was having some trouble finding someone, but through a friend’s recommendation I connected with Kristin. As soon as I talked with Kristin and saw her Instagram I knew that her vision was strong and that she was just as excited about what she does as I am. The photoshoot was a huge success and the photos wouldn’t have been even half as good if we didn’t have Kristin on board. I hope to work with her again in the future and will be recommending her to everyone I know!” - Allison Zaucha - Allison Zaucha Photography
