What beauty services do you offer?
Hair, Makeup, Manicure / Pedicure
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?

The bride will experience first hand the quality, creativity and experience of our artistry in achieving her desired look. The fees are $95 for makeup trial and $105 for hairstyling trial. Trials can also be done at the bride's location. A minimal travel fee will be requested for on location trial services.
Do you specialize in textured hair?
The hairstylists at The CM Artists Group are professional hairstylists with many years of experience. Many have experience styling all types of hair, such as long, full, coarse and wavy hair. We also can provide hair extensions.
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
Yes, Carola Myers is a TV high definition makeup artist. She is trained in and experienced with applying airbrush makeup application for several years. We also specialize in doing hair extensions to add fullness and hair length to your hairstyle. We can provide eye lash extensions that last from three days, a week or 4 weeks for the longest eye lash extension wearing. Ideal for Summer and destination weddings. Airbrushing makeup is also available for Summer weddings, very oily skin, and to cover tattoos. Please inquire about fees for various specialty services. One day event false eye lashes are the most beautiful way to ensure a more defining eye makeup look. One day event false eye lashes fee is $35.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
Yes, we will be there for you on your big day at your location! The travel fee is a nominal charge between $25 to $35 for regional service. Assignments that are over 45 minutes from our location will incur an additional travel fee per artist based on distance (e.g. Baltimore, Frederick, Middleburg and other further areas). Carola Myers was one of the first professional makeup artists to provide on location customized service. Brides to be in the Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland area can enjoy makeup and hair preparation in the comfort of their own locations. Carola Myers has provided this service to high profile clients and dignitaries as well as brides for over 18 years.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
Carola Myers Makeup & Hair Artists can provide service for up to 12 people with 2 artists and 2 stylists in about 4 hours. If the bride has less or more people in her wedding party we can arrange services for any time that would work best for the Bride on her wedding day. Mature people may need up to 45 minutes of time for makeup application. Airbrushing makeup will take an hour. Discounts are available when booking larger parties for service. However, it is important to remember that you will be working with artists that are recognized as some of the best, most skillful and experienced in the wedding industry. Artists in our group have experience ranging from 6 to 19 years.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
Some brides have booked a year in advance for different reasons, such as military deployment, working currently in a different state, transferring to a new college or work transfer. Many book well in advance just to make sure we are totally available for their events. However, it is important and recommended to book your makeup artist and hair stylist once you have found someone that you love their skills at least three months ahead so you can feel secure that you will be the most beautiful bride on your wedding day!
What is your cancellation policy?
If the bride wishes to reserve our services for her wedding day, a contracted agreement is requireed with a non-refundable 50% deposit of the entire cost of services. This will reserve our services for her specific date. The remaining 50% will be due in full one week prior to wedding date.
 However, if the bride cancels her services more than a week before her wedding day, the remaining balance of 50% of the services agreement will not be required. The CM Artists Group is a small business providing services to the wedding industry and special events offering a high level of customer service satisfaction, reliability and commitment to our agreement. Our artists and hairstylists will provide the best refined makeup and hair looks along with the best customer service to the bride and her wedding party.

Carola and her team are amazing!!!. The makeup lasted my entire wedding, through a particularly hot DC summer day with outdoor photos and hours and hours of dancing. Carola listened to me and gave me stunning, fresh makeup (not the typical overdone wedding makeup that I often see). She did a great job arranging hair and makeup for 13 people and everyone (including bridesmaids who had been in a zillion weddings) said that Carola and her team provided the best makeup they had ever seen for everyone in the group across the board. I was married last week, and several people have already contacted me for her info.

Carola was also great making sure that I found a hair style that I loved. I have curly hair and had no idea what to do with it. She walked me through the process, going through several trials, until we found something that could last all night that also didn't feel like an updo. Your wedding day is the time to "get it right" and I felt like I did because of Carola. In sum, I'd recommend her in a heartbeat.

Carola and her team did hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. I was thrilled with her work. She took the time to talk to me about what kind of look I wanted and was always responsive to my questions in the months leading up to my wedding. I felt like she made me look like the best version of myself and was very conscientious of my bridesmaids requests for a "natural" look. I can't speak highly enough of Carola and her team and would recommend her to all future brides!

Carola and her team did an absolutely amazing job for my wedding earlier this month! Carola was very helpful in helping me discover my wedding day look and was very attentive to any questions I had along the way. Rakshi, the artist who did the actual makeup for myself, my sister-in-law, my aunt, and my mom was absolutely fantastic! She arrived early and was able to set up so we could get started with makeup as quickly as possible. Both Carola and Rakshi were so wonderful to work with and made this step of the wedding process fun and completely stress-free. I would highly recommend Carola's services!

I hired Carola and her team for my recent wedding. While Carola does a great job on makeup, and the stylist that did my hair, DJ was AMAZING, I was not pleased with the overall services provided to me. I had a rather larger bridal party and when I made my first contact with Carola and expressed how much money I was willing to pay for the bridesmaids, she put me at ease, assured me that the hair stylists she works with have been doing hair for decades, etc. I had some communication issues with Carola from my trial, and I should have known then not to hire her for my wedding. She was flexible with the costs of the services, and seemed accommodating, but what I didn't know was that I would be sacrificing professionalism and experience! Fast forward to my wedding day, Carola arrived about 30 minutes late, and didn't seem to care at all. Aside from DJ, who again, was phenomenal and managed to do 8 girls' hair, in addition to mine in just 4 hours, Carola brought another 'stylist' to do the remainder Bridesmaids' hair. This person, does not even do hair professionally! She even told one of my bridesmaids that she just does this on the side, and brought CVS brand hair products-- it doesn't take much to realize that this person doesn't truly do hair. All of the girls who had their hair done by her had to get fixed by one of my bridesmaids who just happens to do hair professionally, and thank goodness for her, otherwise 4 of my BMs' hairs styles would have looked terrible. Carola is a great talker, and you believe her when she speaks, but I found my experience disappointing. I was very happy with MY overall look, and in the end all of the girls looked great (thanks to my cousin hairstylist), but the dishonesty is something that I cannot get past. While Carola is a wonderful artist, she doesn't bring a great team with her. She finds who she can and some of these people clearly don't even do this for a living.

Carola Myers Makeup Artist Washington, DC, VA, New York responded with the following comments:

Dear Emily,

Thank you so much for sharing your concerns. Your feedback is very important to me!

We were so excited to work with you for your special day! I am pleased that you were very happy with the overall look that I provided for you along with my senior stylist DJ. You were an absolutely beautiful bride! I was glad I was able to offer my services to you and work within your budget. Nothing is more important to me than accommodating my client’s needs.

However, I apologize if you were disappointed with the work of that particular stylist who did work with some of your bridesmaids. Every artist and stylist I employ is absolutely a professional. That particular hairstylist studied at Paul Mitchell, a very highly regarded styling academy, and has provided wonderful services at many weddings.
I truly feel there was some miscommunication between a few of your bridesmaids and that stylist, but ultimately if any of their hairstyling expectations were not met, that is something I take very seriously and will be personally reviewing with the stylist. I have maintained my quality, integrity, and brand of work for 23 years and your concerns will be a priority moving forward.

Best regards,
Carola

Carola had provided her makeup artist services for my wedding on October 2007 so when I decided to get my makeup done professionally for my cousin’s wedding I knew exactly who to contact! When I called Carola, she greeted me like long time friend with her warm and kind expressions – she even remembered small details of me after 7 years! She was also extremely flexible with my tight schedule and went out of her way to accommodate me. Just like on my wedding day, Carola employed her unique artistry abilities to bring out the natural beauty she is able to masterfully identify – making you feel like a precious gem! The entire experience was pleasant and felt like a soothing retreat as Carola engages you in meaningful conversation, always focused on listening to your needs. Before I left, she made sure that I was more than satisfied with the service and words cannot express how naturally radiant I felt that day. I would absolutely, hands down recommend Carola and her team to anyone who is looking for makup artist services.

Carola was a wonderful person to work with - warm caring and attentive. I enjoyed working with her and cannot wait to do so again! I was confident in her work after our trial, I received many compliments on my makeup. As a South Asian, it's hard to find makeup artists that will work with skin tones of various ranges, and who will understand the artistry that goes into our culture. Because of her extensive experience and her listening skills, she was able to look at my outfit and determine a beautiful look that would bring out the best in me. Further, she went out of her way to get to know me as a person and help me further my connections in a new city. She is someone you want to work long-term with!

Carola is amazing. Not only will she make you look beautiful, she will make you feel like a million bucks in the process. She has made me up for three occasions. All with rave reviews. Carola is skilled, professional, and responsive. She can scale her services up for large parties and include hair or scale them down for individuals.

Carola Myers is enchanting and takes her time getting to know each person to design a different, individual look based off of their vision and how they want to see themselves. She listens, works thoughtfully and everyone she works on looks so incredibly polished.
I was lucky enough to have Carola apply my wedding make-up.
She helped me create a look for that day and I seriously have never felt more beautiful. She took such care and combined with her ability; the whole experience was amazing- she turned my already gorgeous mother into a knock out, and she created outstanding looks for a few of my bridesmaids. One bridesmaid who wanted to do her own make-up was struggling and Carola came to the rescue; even gave advice on products and application tricks she had learned over the years. She has a limitless list of experience.
Carola was fantastic and I cannot say enough positive things about her. She will be my go to for all big events from now on, and considered a family friend!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carola Myers. She did the bridal trial at her house in VA and it was truly a lovely experience. She is so kind, friendly, warm, and personable. She has such a calming and relaxing presence about her. But that is only half the story.... her ability to transform the average person into a glamorous bride is REMARKABLE! Her techniques in airbrushing, eyelash extensions, eyebrow grooming, and even mini-lessons on make up application made her services different than other make up artists. On the day of the wedding she did my make up and several of my bridesmaids keeping us on schedule despite the last minute addition of another bridesmaid. Everyone looked amazing. It was natural yet glamorous. She made me look so pretty that when my groom (now husband) saw me for the first time, he cried and said he was taken by how beautiful I looked. The credit goes to Carola and Meg (hair). I would highly recommend their services.

Carola and her team were excellent! They did hair and make-up for myself and my bridal party (mom and 2 sisters). My family still talks about how sweet they were and how relaxed we felt before the wedding. Carola puts you at ease and really knows how to pull a look together that will work not only for the camera but for in person as well-I had so many compliments (including from my photographer) on my wedding day and I felt beautiful. Highly recommend!

Loved working with Carola again (we hired her for my sister's wedding in September). I wanted to hire her and her team again for my wedding as they so helped to keep everything calm and moving along at my sister's wedding. Carola was super helpful and is so kind. We picked out some hair extensions for me, which I later did not love, and she helped to switch them out, no problem. She is really running an empire of girls and will definitely have someone who can work well with you, regarding what physically you are looking for, as well as who you are looking to work with personality-wise. Poor Carola, a few weeks before my wedding, the hairstylist bailed on everyone and apparently moved from the country. Carola came with a new stylist to my house and did my makeup again, gratis, while my hair was being done. Fortunately, some things work out-- and I loved this version of the hair much better! She really went above and beyond to solve the problem, even though it all came out of her pocket. Everyone was prompt and lovely on my wedding day, and fully responsive to what my bridal party was looking for. It is nice that she has such wonderful girls working so hard for her. Now I am just sad I don't have another event to hire her for at the moment, but I would again in a heartbeat!

Carola created the most flawless and natural makeup look for me and my mother. She truly has the talent to bring out your best features and make you a more gorgeous version of yourself without looking overdone and it feels light as air! My makeup did not budge the entire night--despite dancing and sweating so much! People were coming up to me and commenting on how amazing my makeup looked many hours after it had been appleid--that's how good Carola is! And more importantly, in pictures the makeup looked amazing--which says a lot since usually I looked either washed out or overly made up. My photographer also commented on what a great makeup artist I must have as the pictures he took looked so beautiful!
I give Carola my highest recommendation--it will be one of your best decisions!!

Her team is very professional and my entire bridal party was happy with their make-up and looked beautiful. I loved the way my make-up came out and felt very beautiful on my wedding day. Carola is on the higher end, but I think it is definitely worth paying a little more for excellent make-up, because you will feel beautiful and have these pictures forever. I will definitely recommend Carola and her team!

She worked within my budget and the entire process was explained very clearly. The makeup and hair turned out exactly as I had asked for. She especially did a great job with the mothers of the bride and groom that wanted very natural looking makeup.

From our very first meeting at her home studio in VA, I knew I'd found the right make up artist for my Big Day. From day one, Carola Myers made me feel extremely comfortable and she listened to what I wanted.
Carola's talent and skill level exceeded my expectations, and I've never felt so glamorous in my entire life! My mother and sister felt more beautiful than they had in years, and knowing my family felt good, made me feel fantastic! Paired with an excellent photographer, we now have the most amazing visual memories from our wedding. Not only was she helpful with suggestions for products to keep on hand for the Big Day, but she was flexible, and considerate of all of my requests. (Tweaking the eye shadow shade, pumping up the eyes while keeping the lips more subdued, etc.)
Carola even had a solution for my groom, who was nervous about sweating during our September wedding which took place in an outdoor garden in DC. I highly recommend booking Carola and her team! As every bride-to-be knows, it's a fantastic feeling when you can cross a task off your list with confidence! - Lizzy Gonzalez

Carola Myers was far and away one of my most favorite vendors and one of the best makeup artists (if not the very best) in the DC area!!! As someone who loves makeup, I knew finding the right makeup artist was imperative. Carola is an expert makeup artist; professional, timely and responsive; but perhaps most of all, a truly kind person and a joy to be around.
She is an exceptional listener, which was demonstrated to me from the very beginning. During our trial, we talked about skincare, skin preparation and really explored all the different products we would be using on my wedding day. On the day of our wedding, she brought all the same items and colors from the trial (even a lip color that had been discontinued, but Carola managed to find it and bring a few extras!). She also put together a wonderful kit for me for touch-ups, which was perfect for my honeymoon.
Carola’s team was also top notch. With 5 bridesmaids, 2 moms and 3 flower girls, they were able to do everyone’s hair and makeup in 5 hours. They even did touch-ups at the end to make sure everyone looked picture-perfect. They were so attentive, and one of my bridesmaids and very dear friends said, “I only wish I could have looked this good on my wedding day!" I also don’t think I’ve ever seen my mom (who never wears makeup) look so stunning. What’s more, my makeup and false eyelashes lasted through 12 hours of 99 degree weather, extreme humidity, laughter, tears, dancing and countless hugs.
Maybe even more important than how Carola made me look on my wedding day, though, was how she made me feel. As a bride, no matter how organized and perfect your planning is, on the day of, it’s difficult not to get lost in the stress. Thankfully, Carola has an incredibly calming effect on people. Despite the stress,I was able to be pampered and feel present in the experience, all while spending quality time with the most important women in my life. I am so, so indebted to Carola. She is the best, truly.

Carola did the makeup for my sister, my mom, and myself. Our makeup day-of was great. She is very warm and took a lot of time the morning of my wedding to make sure everything looked great. She also was thoughtful and gave me a little pad for dabbing sweat which proved extremely useful during the dancing so that my makeup stayed!

Carola's prices were originally much higher than I wanted to pay. She was able to help find ways to accommodate my budget, but it was still very expensive. But I chose her for makeup because of the great reviews and the makeup really was beautiful.

Carola not only came to my home for the makeup trial, she found a hair stylist she trusted to also do my hair trial. While my friends watched the trial, she offered tips and advice. Unexpectedly, during the wedding day, my mother decided she wanted her makeup done too. My mom has very sensitive skin and wears minimal makeup. Not only did Carola make my mom completely comfortable with the types of makeup she was using and the technique, she looked beautiful- which made her comfortable and confident all day. My makeup lasted from noon to 3am - one amazing wedding. My neices were in awe in the amount of makeup, shades, and ease Carola brought and applied my makeup. I highly recommend her services. Worth every pennyp and her prices are reasonable in DC area!

Carola was wonderful to work with and I am happy to recommend her highly. I was very hesitant to hire a makeup artist at all because I am super picky about makeup. During my trial I was not entirely happy with the look she gave me but after letting her know the areas I was not happy with, she readjusted the look. I was completely and enthusiastically pleased with her work on my wedding day. She listened to what I wanted and used her mastery of makeup to give me the look I was hoping for. I feel like I truly looked like myself, just enhanced. She gave me an elegant look that matched perfectly with my dress and location. In addition, she was a warm and calming addition to our wedding morning madness. She is funny, warm, and truly cares about her clients. She also did the makeup for one of my very picky bridesmaids, and I can honestly say I have never seen her look so good. Her eyes were amazing. Carola is a true artist and entirely responsible for the many compliments I received that night!

Carola did a great job and was willing to work with me until we achieved the look I wanted. She was so cheerful and friendly--she definitely helped relieve some of the stress on the big day!

I used Carola because she was recommended by the wedding planner at my venue. She is obviously talented, friendly, and experienced. I did a trial at her home, which turned out well (although she is very chatty and it did take almost 3 hours). She responded promptly to emails and was on time. For the wedding she did makeup for my mother and me. I think she was a bit slow doing my mom's makeup, so I felt like we had to rush a little bit with my makeup. For some reason, she decided not to do fake eyelashes on me even though we had done them for the trial - not sure why. Then, when I was about to leave for our "first look" --which we were running late for-- she insisted on taking her own personal photos of me in weird poses against the wall. I had cut her off so I could run downstairs to start my real photos, which made me feel a little awkward. My makeup did look good-- I got compliments on it all night. I thought the price for the trial, and makeup for my mom and I was pretty steep. Overall, if I had to do it again I think I would do my own makeup.

Carola made me look beautiful on my wedding day! I don't usually wear much makeup because I don't like the way it feels on my face but I spent the entire day in Carola's makeup and looked wonderful but did not feel "made up" at all. The make up was so natural looking and feeling! I would definitely recommend Carola's services!!

Carola was calm, collected, and just a sweet energy to be around from the minute I went to see her for my trial. She quickly picked up on my make up taste & style and knew what would be "too much" for me, however, for my bridesmaids she matched their wants and tastes perfectly to their desires. She arrived at my home appropriately on time, however, as any wedding day can go, the rest of the wedding party was running around and being late, Carola took it upon herself to make sure we were all on time and done with our makeup and looking exquisite to that matter with adaquate amount of time. Carola called on one of her assistants to come that came quickly to help bring the wedding party back on track. At the end of the day, my make up stayed glowing and beautiful and my bridesmaids looked stunning with their makeup. I look back at the photos and reiterate what an AMAZING job Carola had done really capturing a natural glowing beauty through her makeup applications, I couldnt be happier with her and have recommended her to many bride to be's.

We were extremely pleased with our hair and makeup provided by Carola Myers. My mother, maid of honor, and I all had our makeup done by Carola and were so impressed with her work! I had two hair trials and one makeup trial with Carola and one of her hair stylists, Neda, before the wedding and they were very kind and helpful to me.

I was so happy that I chose them because as a result I felt beautiful on the big day, and received wonderful compliments - I even had guests telling me that I looked like a princess, like Grace Kelly! My brother said he had never seen me look so beautiful. So sweet! You really cannot put a pricetag on feeling confident about how you look on your wedding day. Not only will you be more relaxed, you can rest assured that your groom thinks you look wonderful, and that you'll be happy with your wedding photos, too. I was on cloud 9 and felt so good about myself that day thanks in part to the services provided by Carola Myers. When you think about it, all this planning, time, energy, and money has come down to this one day, and shouldn't you look and feel your best on that day? I think so! Carola is so nice too, she provides you with touchup make up and powder to use throughout the day and evening.

My mother and maid of honor were extremely satisfied with their makeup as well. Neda gave pretty updo's to me and two of my bridesmaids and styled the hair of the flower girl, my mother and my aunt. Our hair all looked great! It was so worth it! My only minor issue is that Carola arrived about 15 minutes late because she couldn't find the hotel room at first, and then later we were running late (for other reasons) and I wanted to hurry up and finish because we had to get our pictures taken and she did not seem particularly concerned with the time. The photographer had to leave to go to the venue and I did not get to take pictures in my wedding dress with my bridesmaids in the hotel room because I wasn't ready yet, so that was a disappointment. In retrospect we should have started the day earlier. I arrived late to the venue to take pictures before the wedding. We managed to get some pictures taken before the ceremony but it was a little rushed. This is not to say that it is Carola's fault (bigger factors were that our transportation ran late and the florist had to redo my bouquet) just that there is a time component that comes into play and it's important to stay on top of it.

In addition to being extremely talented and professional, Carola and her stylist are warm, friendly, supportive, calm, and helpful, which really eases your mind on such an important day when you might otherwise be stressed. She helped me to feel more relaxed getting ready and when she was done I felt confident and beautiful! She really knows makeup and is excellent at what she does. I would highly recommend Carola and her stylists to any bride who wants to look beautiful on her wedding day.

Carola did my makeup as well nearly all my bridesmaids and both moms and everyone looked sensational! One of my married BMs said, "This is better than the makeup I had at my own wedding!"
everything looked so natural and stayed perfect all night. She was also extremely flexible and negotiated a fair rate to return and do touchups after the ceremony and before i went into the reception so i looked perfectly fresh again. It also photographed extremely well. I was also impressed that although I went in requested airbrush foundation, she told me that i didn't need it and that she could do a much better job without it (and if i'd done airbrush, it would have been more $ for her, so that showed me she really wanted me to look my best). I had one other makeup trial with a very well known artist and left it looking like a clown with airbrush foundation all in my hair and feeling discouraged and ugly. Carola helped me get over that experience and allow me to trust her to make me look amazing at my wedding.

Carola and her team were great to work with, and ensured that our make up looked flawless for our wedding. I had Carola's associate make up artist, Logan, do my make up since Carola was already booked for our date, and she did an outstanding job, creating just the natural look I wanted while ensuring that the make up would last throughout the day and show up well in photos. Carola supervised the trial, and we all worked together to create my look for the wedding. Logan executed it flawlessly, and was very laid back and calm during this crazy time. She also helped with some last minute hair issues. I attribute a big part of the success of our wedding photos to Logan's top notch make up application.

She also did a fab job on my mother in law and my mother as well. I will be hiring Carola for other events in my life, such a graduation.

I was so lucky to have Carola do makeup for me, my bridesmaids and the moms. She did such a wonderful job. Even though it snowed the day of the wedding, and she had to go do makeup for the kennedy center honors that night, she still got there in plenty of time to make everyone look lovely. She honestly made me look so beautiful, but yet natural. I didn't have the feeling that I didn't look like myself. It was just a much better put together me. I couldn't have asked for more. She was truly amazing!

I had the honor and privilege of having my hair and make up done by Carola Myers and her associate Meg Walsh. I will be the first to admit that I am extremely particular about my hair and makeup, and Carola sure did not disappoint. She made me feel the most beautiful I've ever felt on my wedding day. She is a warm and kind hearted person and her talent is unmatched by any other. She creates a custom look that complements your face. My friend was so impressed by the work that she did on me and my bridesmaids, she booked Carola within a week of my wedding. The make up does not feel heavy or cakey, and lasts all day. I cannot put into words how happy I was with my wedding day look and if you are in the DC metro area, I highly recommend Carola Myers for all your special events!

Carola was a true pleasure to work with. She was delightful and pleasant and really made me feel at ease on my wedding day. Her work was spectacular as well. She did a trial with me to pick out the best colors to use a few months before my wedding. She even set me up with a great hair stylist. I was extremely pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would strongly recommend her to everyone.

Carola Myers is the most personable and talented makeup artist in Washington DC. She creates incredibly elegant faces, truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to make their day special. I recommended her to my very best friend for her wedding when I served as her maid of honor at the W Hotel. Carola has done the makeup for our cover shoots, fashion editorials, beauty pages, and society portraits, but more importantly, she is who we turn to do our makeup.

Carola is always my first call for an important occasion and she should definitely be yours too!
