In 2015 the Blend team is thrilled to be entering our 5th year serving MD, DC, and VA.

As we continue to meet and work with the most beautiful clients (inside and out), we often have to pinch ourselves.

I can't begin to thank Ryan and Blend enough!!! First of all, Ryan is AMAZING with makeup! I kept saying to my bridesmaids over and over again that her makeup is a work of art! Even though she can do literally anything, she respects your wishes. I wanted to do a neutral palette for my wedding and she enhanced my natural features without going too over the top. She uses airbrush which lasted ALL day long and individual lashes wish look a lot more natural than strips (and feel better too). She is also just a great person! She is always so friendly, fun and upbeat! I would recommend Blend to everyone and anyone!!!!

Ryan came highly recommended by my sister-in-law and she did not disappoint! She took her time and made sure that each person looked exactly how they wanted to look. The girls in my wedding all wore different dresses and I wanted them to wear matching lipstick to tie us all together. Ryan made personalized lipstick colors in cute containers for me to give each of the girls that were perfect for the big day. She also did a great job of matching the makeup to the specific needs of each girl instead of making everyone look the same (like some makeup artists do). I don't typically wear a lot of makeup and was nervous about it being overdone, but she listened to my concerns and created the perfect look for my style. She is truly great at what she does and I would not hesitate to recommmend her to anyone in need of professional makeup!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Marquia and Maliki!! They are truly artists- I met Marquia during my trial and was instantly put at ease- she's wonderful to talk to and just so much fun to have around. Her airbrush makes everything look flawless without looking caked on or heavy.
I think one important thing to consider is who do you want around you on your wedding day? Marquia and Maliki were just so much fun to have with us all morning and on top of that, they made every single member of my bridal party and family looking the best I've ever seen them look. They were also able to really understand everyone's preferences-- my mother and sister in law wear very minimal makeup while my bridesmaids and I enjoy a smokier look. This duo managed to bring out the absolute best in everyone while making them all feel beautiful with their individual looks.
Highest recommendation to make your wedding day fun and beautiful!!

Ryan was fabulous! We had a great trial run, and I used that makeup for my engagement photos, then she was amazing recreating a sparkly look I had decided to go with the day before my wedding. My bridesmaids and mom looked beautiful and Ryan was able to work in one of my girls who didn't plan on getting makeup in the first place! She worked quickly and the airbrush looked awesome.

Ryan was an absolute pleasure to work it; she is friendly, laid back, and very professional. She was very understanding of what I wanted with my bridal makeup and was also very helpful with her own ideas, giving me tips here and there for what I should do. From the start, she was quick to respond to my emails and was able to set up a trial date for me immediately. On the day of the wedding, she was so patient with the chaos of the wedding.. and she made my bridesmaids look absolutely beautiful. I got so many compliments on my makeup throughout the night. The makeup lasted so long -- I didn't need any touching up at all that night. My makeup also looked AMAZING in our wedding photos. I would HIGHLY recommend Ryan to anybody looking for a top-notch makeup artist.

I worked with Kathy Schultz for my engagement picture makeup and wedding makeup. She is a wonderful person and a true ARTIST with makeup.

I was married in an evening wedding on New Year's Eve and had very specific ideas on what I wanted- a berry lip and cheeks, gold highlights and some smoke around my eyes and bold brows. Kathy and I worked through this at my trial, which was wonderful. She has a beautiful home studio where we picked all the colors and products we'd use on my wedding day and she made me feel totally relaxed and comfortable. I also scheduled my trial on the day of my wedding shower- so I looked extra beautiful!

On my wedding day, Kathy showed up with all the products that we had discussed (I wanted to have the blush and lipstick for touch-ups), which took something off my plate and that was wonderful. She did makeup for my Mom, the Mother of the Groom, two of my bridesmaids and me. She has such a cheerful and calming personality- everyone loved her! And everyone loved their makeup. A couple of my girls and the Mom's asked for a more natural look and Kathy did that flawlessly. My sister wanted something a lot more glam- dark smoky eyes with some sparkle- and it was super dramatic and gorgeous for the evening event. And the airbrush foundation made our skin look smooth and perfect all day. We had a really long wedding due to the NYE celebration, and my makeup stayed on and looked BEAUTIFUL all night.

I can not imagine not having Kathy as a part of my wedding day. She was so warm and professional and I highly, highly recommend her and Blend!!

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.

Kathy did an amazing job at my wedding! I received so many compliments on my makeup and our pictures turned out fantastic. Airbrush makeup is definitely worth it for your wedding day - No touch ups or rubbing off! I had a large wedding party (8 bridesmaids) and also both moms. Kathy had an assistant and they were fast and professional. Everyone loved their makeup and I would definitely recommend Blend! Oh and our wedding party had the full gamut of skin tones - no issues whatsoever! Thank you!

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.
