I cannot say enough about how amazing my makeup was for my wedding!!! Carl did my makeup for my wedding day on 8/31/14 and he made me look and feel like the most beautiful version of myself! I have had my makeup done by others in the past and feel like I am a different person under layers of makeup, but with Carl, everything truly was PERFECT! And to add to that, my makeup didn’t budge all day (it was an extremely HOT and HUMID August day in DC, but my face didn’t give that away one bit). When I initially reached out to book Carl, I worked directly with Rick Raines, and he was so accommodating and helpful through the process as well. And just to make things better, Carl was so down to earth, easy to talk to and such a joy to work with! If you want to look stunning on your wedding day, no question, you need to book Carl!

Carl is amazing. He did such a wonderful job on my makeup, my matron of honor's, and my mother's. We got so many compliments throughout the night, and the makeup looked perfect until the end of the evening. It's such a treat to have your makeup done by the best in DC for your big day!

Carl made me look absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day. He hit the sweet spot of making me look elegant AND sexy!! I loved everything about my makeup, my skin was glowing, my eyebrows looked great, and my eyes looked smoky without one smudge. AND most importantly my make up stayed on all night…it looked just as good in pictures at midnight as it did at 4 pm.
From the moment I booked Carl and spoke with his assistant Rick I knew I was going to be taken care of, and I was.
Want to also mention that his pricing was comparable to many of the other make up artists I looked at. A++++++

When I first heard about Carl, I was immediately attracted to his high profile reputation. I love makeup and wanted the best for me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. Upon hiring Carl, he came to my apartment for my makeup trial which we scheduled the same day as our engagement photos. There was no doubt in my mind that he would do a beautiful job - let's face it - the First Lady uses him and she has exquisite taste. What did surprise me, however, was how down to Earth and funny Carl was. I had the best time getting my makeup done that day and on my wedding day, Carl made me feel like a princess. He doesn't just know makeup; he's an artist. Furthermore, he is
professional, savvy and an entrepreneur - check out his line of lip glosses! Carl's assistant, Rick, who handled all of the scheduling, was also q pleasure to work with. My overall experience with Carl Ray exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him to any bride-to-be who is still on the hunt for a makeup artist. So, if you want to feel like a princess for a day, choose Carl Ray. Xoxo

Carl is the absolute best makeup artist I have every worked with!
He makes you feel so comfortable, and really listens to everything you say. I can be VERY picky about my makeup, but he took the time to make sure I was 100% happy. At my trial, I changed my mind a few times, but he was so patient and caring-he truly wants you to be happy with his work!!
I absolutely loved my wedding day look!

Let me begin this review by saying that Carl was the third person I called after I got engaged. This was not because I couldn't wait to tell him but because I wanted to book him for the entire month of April until I could lock down my venue. Basically, I was not getting married without Carl and Rick on my team. Fortunately we were able to get everything organized quickly and I did not have to book for the entire month! Carl is truly an amazing artist and a fabulous person to boot. I didn't even bother with a trial as I knew whatever he wanted to do the day of the wedding I was going to love (and I did)! Rick is scheduler extraordinaire! He made the entire process seamless. I must have changed the schedule 10 times before the wedding and he was responsive, relaxed and very accommodating. I can't recommend Carl Ray Makeup Artist, LLC enough. You will be thrilled you choose them.

I just cannot rave enough about Carl and Rick. Rick was so helpful coordinating schedules between various cancellations from snowstorms and sicknesses and then when I finally met Carl, I was thrilled. He did the make-up for myself and my sister on March 8, 2014 and was even nice enough to put some color on my 8 year old niece. I was nervous to meet him, but he's so caring and genuine that he immediately puts you at ease. And his skill is unmatched. I've had professional make-up done dozens of times, and nobody even comes close to Carl. He's a true artist and a true professional and really, what more can you ask for? If he's free, book him. You won't regret it.

Carl Ray did my makeup for my winter wedding, and exceeded my expectations. I was skeptical of using a professional makeup artist, because of skin and eye sensitivity, and also because I wanted a natural look for my wedding day. When I went for my makeup trial, Carl asked lots of questions and I was happy with the look. Fast forward to my wedding day, and some of the small tweaks he made (without me even asking) took the look from great to absolutely perfect. He did everything possible to avoid irritation to my sensitive eyes, which was a small miracle. Carl's personality put me at ease, and I left the salon feeling confident and relaxed. When the pictures came back, you could barely tell I was wearing makeup. I just looked like a glowing, flawless version of myself. Which was exactly what I asked for. I'm grateful to Carl for being part of my "glam squad" and would highly recommend him to any other bride in DC.

Carl Ray is THE BEST. I can go on and on about how a great a make up artist he is, and he is. He is the best. He made me feel and look beautiful for my engagement pictures and on my wedding day. He is the busiest man I know, but he took his time with me on my wedding day and then asked me to come back after I finished my hair for some touch ups. And he also gifted me my new favorite lip gloss which was clutch. So anyway, not only is he amazing at what he does, but he is also SO SO fun and puts you in the best mood. And who doesn't need such an amazing presence on their wedding day when you're surrounded by crazy?!! He's amazing. I am by far not his biggest client (make up artist to the DC stars here ladies) but he 100% makes you feel like you are. I wish I could see him once a week! Also, his person Rick makes it ALL happen. He's just a sweet and wonderful to work with and he literally fits it all in -- working with the brides crazy schedules and Carl Ray's. They are THE BEST and you CANNOT get married in DC without going to Carl Ray.
