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.



With over 6 years proudly serving MD, DC, and VA under our make-up belt, we have been fortunate enough to see our work featured in a variety of beauty related press outlets. Including but not limited to:



The Knot, Brides, Washington Bride and Groom (Named "One to Watch" Wedding Vendor in 2014 and Best of 2015 and 2016), Baltimore Bride, Teen Vogue, Time Magazine Online, BuzzFeed, Yahoo Beauty, 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 both 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. "

Can I just say... I LOVE Kathy!! She did a phenomenal job at my trial and on my wedding day! All my bridesmaids were raving about her and how well she did (not to mention friendly!). She really took the time to listen to any little changes I wanted to make from when I had my trial to the day of the wedding and made them happen! I felt flawless! I have rosacea and there were absolutely no signs of redness!

I cannot thank her enough for the extra above and beyond she went to making my Mom feel more like herself. My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer April 2016 and has been undergoing chemo and radiation before, during and after my wedding. She lost all her hair and started to lose her eyebrows and eyelashes. It was so nice seeing my Mom look like her again and to have her feel beautiful. She gave her back her eyebrows and put on small individual lashes to give her a more natural look.

Overall, Blend as a company is so extremely professional, personable and a joy to work with! Highly recommend Blend and Kathy as your make up artist for your wedding or special event!

I loved how myself and my bridesmaids looked the day of the wedding. Their team can do both natural and dramatic looks equally adeptly. They were even understanding about my "germaphobia," indulging all my questions about how the brushes and other products were cleaned. I can't recommend Blend enough!

Marquia Kinard is so talented and I would recommend her without reservation. My makeup looked absolutely stunning for my wedding. It was very natural yet photographed beautifully. She truly made me look like the best version of myself while still looking like myself. I received so many compliments. It also held up through tears, 90 degree heat, and wild dancing. One of my bridesmaids had her makeup done before 10pm and her makeup still looked perfect over 12 hours later.

Marquia is also an absolute joy to work with. I absolutely loved every minute I spent with her during my engagement session, wedding trial, and on my wedding day. Same goes for my bridesmaids. We all wanted to be friends with her after she did our makeup. Not only is she fun and spunky, but she is also highly professional. You won't regret having her do your makeup.

Maliki was AMAZING - she showed up super early, did beautiful make up for my 7 bridesmaids, my niece, my mom, my MIL, and me, not to mention a couple touch-ups for the groom! So nice, so flexible, and she was able to give me EXACTLY what I wanted. SO grateful to have had such a wonderful person there while we were all getting ready!

Kathy at Blend is wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about her! Blend came highly recommended from a few of my other vendors. I did a trial with Kathy and one other place but there was no competition, Blend was by far the better choice and I couldn’t have been happier.

The trial was at Kathy’s home studio which was so warm and welcoming. She came to our venue the day of the wedding and it was such a joy to spend the morning with her. She is so friendly, caring and has amazing talent!

The next morning at brunch a few of the girls who got their makeup done still had it on and it still looked fabulous! They didn't want to wash their faces because they loved their make up so much!

Kathy even gave me a custom lipstick she created if I needed touch-ups.. what she put on lasted all day/night but now I have a tube of lipstick that’s the exact shade that I wore on my wedding day! A small detail that made such a touching impact.

Ryan from Blend do the most amazing job on my wedding makeup and the makeup of all my bridemaids, my mom and my mother-in-law. Everyone's make-up looked flawless and played up each person's individual features. Every single one of my bridemaids commented to me about how much they loved their makeup, which I think is often rare. One even said it is the best wedding makeup she has ever had, and she has been in a ton of weddings. Ryan is the sweetest most pleasant person to be around. Her assistant also did an absolutely amazing job.

Throughout the entire process, Ryan was always super responsive via e-mail. On the day of my wedding, they were ahead of schedule the entire morning, which ensured I wasn't stressed. I just recently received my professional pictures and I am even more amazed at how beautiful my makeup looked. It really stands out in pictures, and I truly feel like she made me look the most beautiful I have ever looked. I couldn't be happier with Ryan and would recommend hiring Blend Makeup Artistry to any bride in the DC, VA, Baltimore, Annapolis areas. You will be so happy with your decision!

Kathy was absolutely incredible and we are so incredibly grateful for her talent!!! She was at our venue at 6 am on time and in good spirits ready to glamify nine women and have everyone done by 12.30pm for photos. Despite the early start and so many girls, Kathy made every single women look and feel absolutely AMAZING. I still cannot get over how wonderful everyone looked and absolutely love the way she made me look and with the hair and flower crown I felt absolutely radiant. Even better, Kathy made my Mom feel just as wonderful as I felt and that made me just as happy as looking good myself. Having hired Blend, there is no one else I would rather have when needing to have my makeup professionally done - they are truly phenomenal talent and spectacularly professional and poised. You will be so happy you hired them.

Cathy did a great job! I had a couple of bridesmaids that never wear makeup, and Cathy was so great about accommodating their requests. I can’t stand the way false eyelashes feel, and she found a way to make my eyes stand out without them. I was also very nervous about the schedule and everyone getting their makeup done in time; she ended up finishing an hour early! I loved the way I looked and received so many comments.
