When looking for a make-up person for my daughter's wedding I waited until 5 months before the wedding like every timeline recommended. Please don't wait that long - there is no reason to wait once you have a wedding date. Do your research and go for trials with enough time to make sure your choice is available for your date. We looked for information online and it was overwhelming so we turned to some of the vendors that I had contracted for the wedding and Kim Giammaria's name came up from different sources. When the wedding photographer told us Kim had done her bridal make-up I contacted her right away - we were lucky she was available, I checked her reviews and immediately booked a trial for my daughter with her. And I didn't need to look any further. Kim is such a neat lady: warm, fun, beautiful and super talented. The trial was a success: she starts off with a natural make-up, takes pictures; adds more make-up, takes more pictures until you feel the make-up is "you, only better". She is very accommodating and loves her work. And loves everything about her work: she told me she likes to even help the bride get dressed. The day of the wedding she came promptly to my daughter's hotel and started working early on mothers, grandmothers, bridesmaids, aunts and finally, the bride. My daughter got married in late August in an outdoor garden ceremony in a beautiful venue in Washington DC: it was hot! So I had asked Kim to come with us to the venue and touch up my daughter's make-up after the First Look and after the ceremony so that she wouldn't be sweaty and shiny and she gladly came with us. She did that and helped us not only with make-up, she is a calm and soothing presence and she even helped ME zip up my dress! The girls looked beautiful, the make-up was beautiful, we were all very happy! Between the make-up and Kim's magic, we all felt beautiful... I would recommend Kim in a heartbeat. I just can't say enough wonderful things about her.

Kim was absolutely amazing to work with! I did a trial with Kim and we hit it off, she was comforting and listened to any input I had for the makeup. Kim was so sweet she even touched up my mom during our trial which was the night of my engagement party and made a little custom lip gloss to last me the night.

As someone who doesn't wear a ton of makeup, I was a little nervous about the entire makeup portion of the wedding day. Kim is calming and easy to work with. The best thing about Kim is that she knew how to do a nice balance (enough for pictures, but I still looked like myself)! When the wedding day came around she was great and made me and all the bridesmaids look gorgeous. I would highly recommend Kim.

Kim did makeup for my engagement photos as well as my wedding photos. I absolutely love her work!! She spend so much time with me at our trial to make sure the look was exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Kim. She was so much fun to work with. Her personality and attitude made my wedding day! She brought so much joy to our day!! My bridal party's makeup was amazing, they looked so classic and gorgeous. I highly recommend working with Kim not only because of her beautiful makeup but because of the joyful spirit she brings to the day as well.

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!!
