Before I begin my review, I want to say a gracious and sincere thank you to Carola for coming to the Four Seasons on such short notice to do my bridal makeup after my original vendor botched my application earlier that day. Thank you so much Carola for giving me a flawless, stunning look in time for my reception. You truly saved the day and I am forever grateful.

Carola is a beautiful and compassionate artist. She was unpacked, set up and ready to start as soon as I walked through the door. She took the time to calm me down with the soothing scent of lavender oil, which completely melted away the extreme stress I was experiencing after the botched job earlier and just having rushed back to the venue. She has a soothing voice and talked me through until I was calm and collected and ready for what would be the best beauty experience of my life on the most important day of my life.

Her techniques are flawless and immediately I could see that she had decades of experience without even having to tell me. Her foundations were a mix of the same high end brands that I use myself every day-- Chanel, Dior, Smashbox and Bobbi Brown to name a few. She was able to match the golden yellow tones in my Mediterranean skintone effortlessly-- no garish pink tones or orange splotches...just natural and flawless. Her eyeshadow application and lash placement was fabulous. We chatted about skin care and makeup brands that we both use and love. It was refreshing to have an artist with the same appreciation for couture beauty.

The face she gave me was a glamorous evening look, yet soft and feminine. I didn't even have to instruct her on the look I wanted -- being a professional in the field, she knew exactly what I was hoping for.

Every single person present complimented me on how beautiful I looked and how fabulous my makeup was.

If it were not for Carola, my wedding day makeup would have been a disaster. She truly saved the day with such grace, integrity and pure talent.

I can say with the utmost sincerity that Carola is literally the BEST makeup artist I have ever met. I have lived all over the country & have made finding a personal make up artist for special events a priority in each location. I have definitely had the privilege of working with some very talented individuals; however, no one has ever made me feel more beautiful than Carola. She did my makeup for my rehearsal dinner & my wedding. I was going for different looks for each occasion. To say that Carola merely met my expectations would be the understatement of the century. She truly exceeded them. (I am not famous by any means, but I can assure you that the above-noted comment means a lot coming from me. I have lived in DC for 3 years & it took me 3 years to find her. That may sound ridiculous, but I think that if you are going pay someone to do your make-up, they should make you feel beautiful. It's actually harder to find, than one may think!).
Carola made me feel gorgeous. I know I mentioned this earlier, but I feel it necessary to reiterate that no one will make you feel more stunning that Carola. She is not just talented, but truly gifted. She also did the make up for my bridal party (including my sister, mother, & mother-in-law). Each of them truly looked stunning (ask any of them & I know they'd say the same). Carola goes out of her way to master the look you are seeking (she even studied photos of me prior to the trial to learn about my bone structure!).
Not only is she a genuinely gifted make-up artist, but she is also an authentically good person. She is fun to work with & I will undoubtedly work with her as much as possible in the future. If you are looking for someone to make you feel beautiful, but is awesome at the same time, look no further. Carola Myers is the best.

Mrs. Myers and her assistant were AMAZING AND VERY PROFESSIONAL. I am very happy to have worked with her. I definitely considered them like a family after the amazing job they have done for me. My make up looked flawless and my hair looked more than amazing and everyone complimented me on my wedding day. I was the happiest bride alive!. Mrs. Myers was even willing to work with me with a week notice and she was available to work with me through the phone and through email as well. She and her assistant were very polite, fun, friendly, respectful, very fast, she even gave me recommendations for my hair and make up for the future which I really appreciate. I am very thankful and very blessed that she was recommended to me and I would love to so the same for anyone who would like to have their make up and hair done. I would recommend Mrs. Myers ad her business to everybody, she really made my dreams of looking like a QUEEN on my weeding day. :)

Carola and her team were phenomenal! Throughout the entire process, Carola was available for advice, last minute panic attacks and calming words. On the day of the wedding, Carola't team helped my beautiful bridesmaids look their best with hair and makeup. And, I cannot say enough about how confident I felt with my hair and makeup - I got complements all evening! I would recommend Carola in a heartbeat!

Carola and her team did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup for my wedding! They also did the hair and makeup of 2 of my bridesmaids and my mother-in-law. I would have liked to find a bit more of a budget-friendly vendor, but their beautiful work can not be denied. I was also able to book them on fairly short notice (6 weeks) when another vendor fell through.

It was wonderful to have Carola be a part of my wedding day and would highly recommend her services.

Carola's makeup made me look beautiful and myself on my wedding day. I am so thankful I had her to do my makeup.
In addition, Carola was very flexible. When I had a last-minute request to do a makeup trial on a certain day so I could have the makeup done for our engagement photo session, she shifted her own schedule to make that happen.
The morning of my wedding was tense with family dynamics but Carola's loving presence was a refuge for me.
Thank you for doing my makeup, Carola!

Carola is the most wonderful makeup artist. She did a remarkable job on my wedding day. My makeup was more beautiful than I ever thought possible. Aside from her incredible skills as a makeup artist, I was also quite nervous before the wedding and talking to her calmed me down so much! I couldn't believe how amazing she made me feel. She is the best.
