We are thrilled to offer the most talented, personable and experienced make-up artists serving: DC/MD/VA & New Orleans (Please specify your location so that we may best accommodate your request!) About Blend The mastery of make-up art is a delicate skill, which our team has invested years crafting and developing. We do not use the term 'artist' lightly. Our hand-picked team of seasoned artists have acquired the concept of shadow, light and color theory not just through their extensive beauty training, but by painting and exploring various creative avenues. We are constantly keeping in line with the most current industry trends and products in order to bring the best of what beauty has to offer to YOU, our lovely clients. In 2015 the Blend team is thrilled to be entering our 5th year serving MD, DC, and VA. We have been incredibly fortunate to share our work in a vast majority of local and national wedding/beauty related press outlets. Including but not limited to: The Knot, Brides, Get Married, Washington Bride and Groom (Named "One to Watch" Wedding Vendor in 2014 and Best of 2015), Baltimore Bride, The Washingtonian, Baltimore Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Essence, Maxim, Style Me Pretty, Bayside Brides, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Capital Romance, and United With Love. As we continue to meet and work with the most beautiful clients (inside and out), we often have to pinch ourselves. We are honored and humbled to take part in such a significant time in the lives of our brides and their families. "Love of Beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is art. "

I had the pleasure of working both Ryan and Kathy at Blend. Ryan did my makeup for our engagement pics, and because she was already booked for our wedding date, her partner (and mom) Kathy did the wedding day makeup. Both of them are fantastic. They are true artists in every sense of the word. We looked beautiful (if I do say so myself! :-) These ladies are very professional and they make working with them enjoyable. Whether it's putting on soothing music while doing your make up, or connecting through casual conversation, these ladies will put you at ease and getting your makeup done fun and enjoyable. I really liked the airbrush technique they use. I cried on multiple occasions after having my makeup applied, and it did not run at all. Kathy also used the same color scheme on all my girls, but tweaked each one slightly so we were not all the same "cookie cutter" looking makeup. She also did my mom's makeup for the wedding day, and I have never seen her look more beautiful. You should definitely book Kathy, Ryan, or one of her team members for your special day! You will be so glad you did.

I cannot say enough good things about Kathy and how wonderful she was leading up to and on my wedding day. She is truly a treasure and any bride would be lucky to work with her. At my makeup trial, she was very attentive to what I wanted and based on a small photo on my phone was able to create exactly the look I wanted. On my wedding day, Kathy did makeup for my mom, my mother-in-law, my two sisters and my best friend, as well as lashes for two of my other bridesmaids. She was so cheerful and easy to talk to that everyone instantly felt comfortable with her. She also, at my request, completely covered up my wrist tattoo so that you couldn't even tell it was there. But maybe the best thing about working with Kathy was that she made me feel beautiful both inside and out. My makeup was my favorite part of my bridal look and really made the day special. I am so happy that I chose Blend for my wedding makeup and would recommend their services in a heartbeat.

I worked with Ryan from Blend for my wedding day make-up and I could not be happier with how my make-up turned out! It was exactly what I wanted and I looked like a glammed up version of myself :) She was been so sweet throughout the entire process, from trial to my wedding day, and I couldn't recommend her enough!

I am obsessed with Marquia! She does incredible work and will make you feel like a princess leading up to and on your wedding day. She is very sweet and pleasant to be around, she works quickly, and she has lots of little tricks up her sleeve. I think the two best things she did on my big day were the expertly applied and very natural looking false lashes, and of course the airbrush makeup, which she was also generous enough to use to hide a prominent scar in the middle of my back. I received so many compliments on my makeup and that I looked "radiant," "glowing," and "stunning." I owe a lot of that to Marquia because I had been battling some hormonal acne, my eyes were still swollen from an emotional rehearsal dinner the night before, and I had not gotten nearly enough sleep when I sat in her chair. She will transform you, in the best way possible! I looked at several other makeup artists in the area and am confident that Blend will give you the best value for the level of artistry you are getting as well.

We used Blend for our wedding day make-up needs for me, my six bridesmaids, my mother, and my flower girl. Kathy was awesome! All of the girls have extremely different styles. She understood the look that all of us were going for and at the same time managed to make sure that they all looked like they belonged together. I cannot say enough about how much everyone enjoyed having Kathy do their make-up!

I cannot recommend Blend Make-up and Marquia enough. All of my girls looked beautiful and I've had a few people ask who did our make up. She is so personable and it was wonderful and relaxing to have her there on our wedding day. You can't go wrong with Blend Make-Up and ask for Marquia!

Kathy was absolutely amazing! I was a little worried because I'm not used to wearing makeup, but when we first met at my trial session, Kathy was so incredibly nice and friendly that she immediately put me at ease, and her encouraging words made me feel a lot more confident. I also emailed her a few days before the wedding with some adjustments that I wanted on my wedding day look, and she was very professional and accommodating to my requests. On the day of the wedding, I absolutely LOVED my makeup and was ecstatic at how natural and beautiful it turned out. The airbrush makeup made my skin look flawless all day, and I was especially amazed at Kathy's talent on my eye makeup (I have Asian monolids). Kathy also did a fantastic job on my bridesmaids, my mother, and my husband's mother, and she was very patient with all of them as they asked for adjustments and touch-ups. I am so thankful to Kathy for making me look beautiful on my wedding day, and I highly recommend her!

Ryan is a makeup genius!! She was able to excute the exact look I envisioned just by explaining the details of my wedding. She is super sweet and was a pleasure to work with. She always responded promply to my emails, despite having her own wedding a month before mine. My entire bridal party keeps raving about how amazing their makeup was and how we want to have Ryan over for a wine night to teach us all how she did it. The airbrush lasted all through the wedding and even at 2am when we all left the afterparty. She was flexible about the girls deciding last minute if they wanted eyelashes and she stayed late to fixed up my mom's makeup. I highly recommend Ryan as your wedding day makeup artist. I would give her more than five stars if I could!
