I am so glad I picked Kim to provide my makeup services on the day of the wedding. All of her makeup looks were flawless and she is so kind and fun to have around. She made me feel super comfortable when I had a moment of nerves and everyone loved her. Setting up trial times was also a breeze and she was super easy to book.

Kim was the last vendor I booked but probably the most important. What is more important than looking beautiful on your wedding day? I must tell you, I am no spring chicken. I am 50 years old and Kim made me look and feel 10 years younger. I felt beautiful and you can't put a price on that. Kim's work speaks for itself, but there are so many other reasons to book her. My first interaction with her was on the phone when I called to determine her availability. We talked for quite a while - she wanted to hear all the details about the wedding. She seemed so NICE and I felt very comfortable with her. I didn't book a trial with her right away because her pricing is a bit more than other vendors, but I can assure you she is worth it. Kim will go out of her way to make sure you love the way you look and will jump through hoops to make that happen. I had a hard time finding a lipstick that I loved and no matter how many we tried on or how many times I changed my mind, Kim never lost patience with me. I felt like a guest in her home, not a potential client. On the day of the wedding, Kim got me dressed, soothed my nerves, and was there armed with double-stick tape to keep straps up and shoes in place. Amidst all the chaos, Kim was a haven of professionalism and calm.

And one other thing - she takes beautiful pictures. Kim will not overstep her bounds where professional photographers are concerned, but when my photographers were setting up at the alter, she was there to document the moment my father saw me for the first time along with those last few moments of me as a single woman walking toward her destiny. Those images are priceless to me.

Kim, you are a true artist and the love for your craft shows. Thank you for making me look and feel my best and for all the little things you provided that day. I couldn't have picked a better makeup artist.

I absolutely loved Kim! Let me start by saying there were a lot of things about my wedding that didn't mean that much to me, from some respects I guess you could say I was a pretty relaxed bride.

The #1 thing that really mattered to me was my makeup though. At first I thought I would even do my own because of how incredibly picky I am. After being told that was a really bad idea from a number of folks I decided to do some trial runs.

Hands down Kim was the best and most professional! She was awesome about communicating everything right up front via email. Her response rate was amazing and she was happy to answer any questions. She accommodated my crazy work schedule and let me do my trial on a Saturday, which was really helpful. At the trial she provided water and snacks, which was such a nice touch. I filled out a form and we talked a little so she could get to know what I'm looking for better. Once she completed my trial she had me provide lots of feedback so she could really perfect the things I was looking for. She took pictures as well to be sure to remember what I was looking for.

After booking Kim for my wedding she was again very accommodating in regards to the makeup schedule for both me and my bridesmaids. The day of she was an amazing advocate for me and kept me calm all during the makeup process. She was super sweet and a great listener in regards to what I wanted to change up last minute. She really understands how a bride is feeling the day of and goes above and beyond to make everything perfect. I could not have been more happy with Kim. She also has great products and my makeup lasted all night, even my lashes! Strongly recommend Kim for all your wedding needs!

I met Kim through one of my bridesmaids that also used her. I knew immediately that I wanted to hire her. She was such a calming element throughout the "getting" ready process and I'm so glad to have had that! She offered to stay longer to make sure I didn't need any additional touchups. She listened to my thoughts and concerns and talked me through different looks and we picked one that I absolutely loved! All of my bridesmaids looked absolutely amazing as well. She was always flexible, thoughtful, and caring. I could tell she wanted me to be absolutely happy with my look and I never had any doubt that she could get me there. She is absolutely priceless and I'm so happy I made the decision to work with her! I would give her a million stars if I could! LOVE YOU KIM!! xoxo

Kim was amazing to work with and beyond helpful on my wedding day. Kim effortlessly made up 9 of us in a chaotic hotel room on the day of my wedding. Kim knew the exact amount of makeup to apply in order for all of us to look natural and not overdone in all photos and for it to last throughout the entire day/night! I cannot describe Kim as just a makeup artist, because she truly is so much more! Aside from her beautiful talent as a makeup artist, Kim really knows every detail that goes into preparing for a wedding. Once Kim had completed everyone’s makeup, without hesitation, she stepped in and helped everyone finish getting ready, including buttoning up my gown up for me! She took beautiful pictures throughout the morning and shared them with me only a couple days after my wedding, which was a very nice treat!! Kim has a presence about her, which allows her to get things taken care of swiftly, professionally, and with great thought and care, all while making everyone involved feel at ease. I highly recommend Kim and would gladly use her again!

I had the happy honor of having Kim Giammaria from BeautyMark be the make-up artist for me and my bridal party for my wedding this past September. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, right from our first phone call to the wedding day. She was always super responsive- which I think would make any bride happy! Answered all my emails within a few hours at most. When we met for a make-up trial she had delicious snacks & drinks set up and made the whole trial so much fun. I admit that I was rather picky about choosing a lipstick/lip-color but she was so patient and we tried so many different things until we got just the right color. She definitely wanted me to be happy. The day of the wedding she was there bright and early. She was so sweet and calm which made the whole atmosphere wonderful. We even had extra people who asked for make-up at the very last minute, and Kim took it all in stride and was kind enough to do all the extra work we asked. All with a smile! Most importantly, Kim made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. I really felt like I had a friend with me that day, who truly wanted me to look my best. It wasn't just her skill & talent with make-up (which is tremendous!) but it was how she made me feel special. And I suppose that is what any woman would want on her wedding day. Thank you so much Kim for being a part of such a special day in my life!!

I chose Kim Giammaria based on several data points: 1) she is listed as a preferred vendor of the Hay Adams Hotel where I got married, 2) she is recognized as one of the best makeup artists in the DC metro area according to Washingtonian magazine, and 3) I know her husband through his photography work at my company. Kim is very passionate about her work, and went above and beyond for me. She did my hair, helped me put on my wedding gown, and took a couple of my husband's favorite pictures of me at my makeup trial run and on our wedding day. I was very relaxed and happy walking into my ceremony because I had a wonderful time getting ready with Kim and my friends. I will go back to her for makeup lessons in the future. She is a sweetheart and so much fun.

Kim was awesome to work with. She made my mom and I feel so comfortable from the moment we met her for my trial through my wedding day. She has a wonderful personality and great expertise as a makeup artist. On the day-of, she brought joy to the getting-ready process, and took great care on my makeup, my mom's makeup, and the makeup of each of my seven bridesmaids. I've had my makeup done for many weddings before, and Kim's work was by far the best I've experienced. If you want an experienced and detail-oriented makeup artist, I highly recommend Kim!

Kim Giammaria/BeautyMark makeup artist is amazing. Her 20+ years as a professional makeup artist shine through!

I "interviewed" Five other makeup artists/companies, and selected Kim based on her calm demeanor and her amazing ability to transform anyone from drab to glamorous. She is skilled with makeup for photography/video/natural light and my wedding party looked beautiful and not overdone. Our wedding was both outdoor and the reception was indoors, and she mastered the makeup for both!

Thank you Kim! You are amazing!!

So much to say about Kim Giammaria! She knows her stuff, she has been in the business for a while. She is a true sweetheart, an amazing person and an incredible make up artist. She is super professional, takes her time and cares so much. She is a perfectionist, so you are NOT leaving her chair unless you are completely happy! :) I loved working with Kim! She took care of me and my big bridal party like its was no big deal and never was stressed for even a moment. Her personality calmed me down. On top of that, my look was just gorgeous exactly what I always wanted. Definitely highly recommend using Beauty Mark and Kim Giammaria, you cannot go wrong.
