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.

Kim was amazing and I never felt prettier than on my wedding day! She was so accomodating and made me and my mom and grandma so comfortable. She added zero stress to my wedding day, the make-up lasted all evening and it didn't feel like I had any on at all. She is a breath of fresh air and I'd recommend her 1,000 times again!

Kim was absolutely great! She made me look my best on my wedding day and I couldnt have asked for more. She is professional, responsive, and really knew what I was asking for. Although she was a little bit pricier than other people I met with, it was really important for me to look stunning and she was worth every penny!

Kim did my wedding make up this past weekend as well as my mother's and all of my 5 bridesmaids. Not only is her work stunning, but she is SO wonderful to work with. She has an incredibly calming presence and even though I was SO nervous and freaking out at one point, she had me totally at ease.

She even helped me put on my wedding gown and did final touch ups on all the girls. She was with us from 10:30 am until seeing us off to the ceremony at 4:00 and thank goodness she was there. I can't say enough good things about Kim as a person and as a make up artist. I even had a bridesmaid who originally planned to do her own make up but decided to have Kim do hers when she saw how amazing everyone looked. The pictures i have seen so far are amazing. I am thrilled with her work!

Thank you Kim!

Kim has provided the BEST make-up services over the years. I say that because she did my wedding make-up in 1998, my step-daughter's wedding party in 2003, and my make-up again for a special occasion in 2012! She is ALWAYS on time, professional, super-nice, and super-good! She will do just what you ask; if you like color, she knows color. If you like a more subdued look, you'll get it. I've had lots of make-overs in my day; Kim is by far and away the BEST when your appearance really counts.

Kim did an outstanding job as our makeup stylist! I worked with her several times during the wedding planning process, and she did a great job with numerous different styles for different wedding-related events. For the wedding itself, she gave me the "natural look" I was going for, and she was able to adapt the makeup to my specific needs (my gas permeable contact lenses preclude my being able to wear powder eye shadow or foundation). Kim also did a great job with the bridesmaids and mothers, allowing for a little variation within the group to match each woman's style, but also keeping the colors consistent enough that they complemented each other well. She also put a little lip gloss on the flower girls -- at no extra charge -- just so they could feel a little more grown-up. Kim is not only talented, but also a pleasure to work with. She's a great conversationalist and a very interesting person, and I very much enjoyed getting to know her. I highly recommend her work!

I enjoyed working with Kim and loved the way she made me look.

I did do a test makeup session with Kim, which was great. It looked really good and I got to show my fiance - who told me he didn't like the bronzer. So it was great to be able to make that adjustment for my wedding day.

Kim arrived at the church well before I did and was all set up when I got there. She did a fantastic job on my makeup and was very personable and pleasant to be around moments before I said "I do!"

Kim is fantastic! Before finding Kim, I had two trials with different makeup artists, and came out of both looking very made up and unlike myself. Kim on the other hand did a wonderful job creating a very natural and beautiful look. I emailed my sister a photo of my trial with Kim even though my sister had said she didn't want her makeup done, and she immediately wrote back and asked if Kim could do her makeup too. On the day of the event, even more of my family members joined in and had their makeup done once they saw Kim's work. It was expensive, but definitely worth it and everyone looked gorgeous in the photos. On a personal note, Kim is also a genuinely nice person, and I was really glad to have her there. I even learned a few new things about makeup that I've put into use on a daily basis -- I wish I had known some of these things years ago! I'll definitely recommend Kim to all of my friends.

We contracted with Kim to do the makeup for the members of our daughter's wedding party which consisted of the Bride, three Bridesmaids, Mother and Grandmother of the Bride. She not only did the makeup for all six ladies, but created a beautiful hairstyle for the Bride when the hairstylist became unavailable. Kim soothed nerves and provided a much-needed jolt of professional confidence and efficient calm.

Kim from BeutyMark was an amazing asset for our wedding. She listened to me and she advised me on different alternatives. The trial was a fun outing with my friends and Kim was a wonderful host. The day of was absolutely amazing as she brought with her not only her professional tools, but also a smile and the warmth I needed. Her work was impecable and absolutely fabulous (I wish I could hire her every morning!) but the most important thing is I felt comfortable in my own skin throughout the day. I highly recommend BeautyMark for your event.

I consider myself to be extremely flexible and always try to go above and beyond. If at anytime I did not meet your expectations in that area I apologize.
I hope your day was perfect.

Let me first start by saying, if you are looking for the best makeup artist in town, look no further, Kim Giammaria is it! I found Kim at the last minute and she was completely flexible and willing to work with me. She was highly recommended and through that I took the chance of trying her without a trial. She typically encourages people to get the trial; however, since I was very last minute, she was very willing to take me as a client. Never meeting her, Kim came to my hotel room and began to work. She took my natural features and accented them in a contemporary manner. I didn't want to look done up and so she worked with my features and highlighted them. I looked so beautiful on my wedding day because Kim worked with my skin tone, complextion, and really brought out my features. She also worked with my dress and knowing what my hair was going to look like. She was very responsive and it was great working with her. She is very creative, flexible and attentive. Most of all, she has a pleasant personality. I highly recommend Kim as the best makeup artist in town!

Kim is a great makeup artist and a joy to have around on your wedding day. She did makeup for me, my mom, sister, and grandmother and we were all really happy with how we looked. I wanted really natural makeup and my sister wanted super dramatic smokey eyes and she did a fantastic job with both! Kim is super sweet and a very calming influence and as an added bonus she is a dresser. I did not think I needed one but when it took my mom 5 minutes just to do one of 25 buttons on my dress we started to panic- Kim totally saved the day with her patience and a buttonhook she carries with her!!! She also showed me how to carry my dress and veil so as to not get them dirty or wrinkled. She was wonderful and I highly recommend her!

Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with, and the end-product of her services was excellent.
From the moment my daughter (the bride) and I met her for a trial run, she made us both feel at ease, and she did a great job with our make-up. She understood the way we wanted to look (not too "made-up," yet special). On the wedding day, she did a great job on everyone she worked on. She was also a very calming influence in the bridal suite that day. She helped my daughter get dressed and ready for pictures and for the wedding. Our make-up stayed perfect through the wedding, dancing and all.
We would hire her again in a second!
