I am a professional makeup artist based in Seaford, VA (an enclave of York County). I have formal training in the art of makeup application as well as being a Temptu Certified Master Airbrush Artist. My passion is to make women look and feel their most beautiful. I love doing the bridal look but I do not believe in making all brides look the same. Your makeup trial is a chance for us to sit down and discuss the look that will make you feel your most beautiful and confident on this most special day. I have books with ideas or you can bring your own inspirational images.

I have collaborated with several other regional talents to create professional production projects. I know you will be pleased if you allow me the honor of this most personal service for your most important event!

While makeup is my passion, your safety is my top priority. I maintain the highest standards for sanitation possible for the health and safety of my clients.

I love making product reccomendations, however product sales are not my forte. I do not sell any product. You will have an enjoyable sales pitch free experience with me. Read less

Kim is an absolutely amazing makeup artist. I am an extremely negative person with an unhealthy self-image, but even I had to admit that I looked amazing on my wedding day. She made me look flawless (and my face is riddled with scars)! I am also clueless about which colors complement my skin tone; I had certain ideas about what colors I wanted to use, but her gentle and helpful suggestions ensured I didn't look like a clown on my big day.

The quality of her products is beyond excellent; my makeup lasted through all the talking, laughing, hugs & kisses, food, and drinks. The only time I had to touch-up my lipstick was after wiping off the frosting my husband smeared all over my lips. My false eyelashes also lasted through all my tears! Most importantly, she is very vigilant about sanitation, which is a big deal for me and my sensitive face.

The only gripe I have is that she ran about 15-30 minutes late, and underestimated the amount of time she needed to apply my makeup, so that put me behind schedule the day of. Ultimately, it was worth it; I have never received as many compliments as I did that day.

It was my pleasure to do your makeup! So sorry for the delay, but I would like to add that I did have to wait an additional 15 minutes after my arrival for the hair stylist to finish up before I could begin. I loved the drama of creating your Bridal look as you looked spectacular! You were a wonderful bride to work with and I wish you and your new husband a lifetime of happiness!

Kim is awesome!!! Great experience with her. I couldn't really make up my mind what I wanted to look like, but she did her magic and I looked pretty good if I must say so myself. I am a pale red head and she managed to find a perfect foundation color for me, which I have never been able to do. Will be recommending her to anyone who asks!!

Kimberly from About Face MUA made me feel so beautiful on my day. She was professional, fun, and very detailed about what I wanted to look like. Her consultation was so easy going that we had a look picked out within the hour I saw her. She was on time for my event, and even rolled with punches when I totally forgot to tell her about an extra bridemaid. Her airbrush makeup made me feel like I wasn't wearing anything at all, which was great because I don't usually wear makeup. I would use Kimberly again and again, and refer her to all my friends. She is the best!

I am so happy that I hired Kim to do my make-up for my wedding! She is amazing! From the first time we met she was so professional and very knowledgeable about make-up. For my make-up consultation Kim came to my home and made me feel like a queen in my own home. She brought everything that she would need, even a very comfortable chair!!! On my wedding day Kim was on time and very well organized with her things helping to keep us all on schedule. I recommend Kim for any occasions that requires a professional make-up artist!!! Being a woman of color I was worried about the make-up matching my skin tone, but I shouldn't have been because Kim can do make for all shades of color!!!! She is amazing!!!!!

Kim did the makeup for our engagement photos. Unfortunately due to a scheduling conflict she wasn't available for the wedding day. That being said, I wish she had been. She was very professional, did an amazing job on my face, and for someone who doesn't wear much make up, she made me feel very comfortable.

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an artist with talent, but that also has fair prices, and treats you with complete respect.

Kim Trotto, with "About Face", has done my make-up on more than one special occasion. She is a professional and an expert in her field. My pictures have turned out gorgeous every time I use her services. I never go anywhere else when I want my face to look its best. I give "About Face" a 5-star rating! Thanks Kim!

I found Kimberly Trotto through friends. She did makeup for two of my friends wedding (that I was in) and I loved her work! Kimberly is very receptive of the bride and bridal parties needs. She was very flexible scheduling and always responded to my emails within a day. I would highly recommend Kimberly Trotto for anyone's beauty needs.
