I booked Dawn for my November 2015 wedding in Alexandria, VA. She did my makeup, 3 bridesmaids, and a personal attendant. While not astronomically priced or anything, she was definitely one of the things I splurged on for my wedding, and boy was she worth it. All my girls loved their makeup and - more importantly, let's face it - I felt gorgeous all night. She is super responsive to what you're looking for - she won't make you feel like you look like someone else - you're just the best version of you. And it stays all night (she gives you a great touch up kit just in case which I'm still using daily!). I also kept my eye on the products she used during my trail and came to depend daily on some of the products she introduced me to (foundation, etc.). I've never been huge into makeup, but for photos, Dawn is a must. Not to mention she is an absolute pleasure. Incredibly dependable, and well worth the expense. I'm definitely keeping her in mind for any events I may have in the future!

Wow! How amazing Dawn is! I didn't even have to trial any other make-up artist after the first trial. She blew me away.
Her effortless concept to make you look like a porcelain doll. I couldn't of chosen a most amazing, exceptional make-up artist. It was like painting a picture and making it come to life :) Not only did I love her, but all my bridesmaids and mom thought she was just as great! I wouldn't pass her up and book now :) Worth every penny!
She was very professional and efficient at the work she does! I hope to see her in the near future!

I would recommend Dawn Newsome for any special event, wedding or a fun night out if you want to look your most beautiful and best! She is not only a talented makeup artist who can make you feel gorgeous, but she is so professional that is so reassuring and calming to you especially on such a busy day. My wedding was unique in that due to personal matters we had to postpone our wedding for a year. It was very heartbreaking, yet Dawn stayed with me not only as my make up artist but became a friend for support. She was understanding and patient. Then when we finally had everything in place my hairstylist backs out, however Dawn was there to the rescue. Her recommendation of a wonderful hairstylist once again reassuring support saved the day. Everyone looked beautiful. This was a second marriage so I am not a young bride however, she made me feel like one. She is great at what she does! I am so happy she stuck it out with me. It made me feel like she cares----and she does!

I just wrote a review for Dawn on Google but love her so much I'm gonna write two. This is my google review:
I found Dawn Newsome through Thumbtack after deciding my current makeup artist wasn't gonna cut it. OMG I'M SO GLAD I DID. We had a mutual friend on Facebook (small world) and that friend confirmed that Dawn was the bomb dot com so I booked a trial and never turned back. I've NEVER FELT OR LOOKED PRETTIER. I wish I could attach a picture to this review. Not only is Dawn the sweetest, most easy to get along with person I've met.. She just "got me". I hardly even gave her any instruction or direction and she nailed it. It was exactly what I wanted. My makeup stayed put all night. ALL NIGHT. I didn't have to touch up ONCE even though she does give you powder and lip stuff to reapply if you need to. I didn't need to. I looked just as flawless at the end of the night as I did in the beginning. Everyone in my bridal party who used Dawn looked flawless all night too. She was SO WORTH IT. I would use her again and again and recommend her to everyone and anyone. Whether you want dramatic makeup or an all natural look or WHATEVER: She will nail it. Trust me. Book her.
I would like to add that she was extremely professional. Was on time (actually she was early) which was fabulous b/c I was a complete scatterbrain that day. She was CALM. She kept ME CALM. Which is NOT EASY lol. I honestly felt like we had been friends for years. The only thing I'll say is that I heard later that a touch up and a whole face was the same price for bridesmaids and bridal party so if you're gonna get a touch up, just go ahead and have her do your whole face. This may have been a mix up though and I already said I was scatterbrained that day so this is just what a couple bridal members told me later. I still give her 5 stars across the board b/c she was EVERYTHING to me. A million times worth it. The whole bridal party agreed. Even the touch up girls ;). Thank you Dawn!!!

I highly recommend Dawn Newsome for bridal makeup services. Dawn is a true professional and does exceptional work. During my makeup trial in Feb 2015, I communicated my vision for a "soft glam" look and within 30 minutes, Dawn had created the perfect look for my wedding day - NO changes needed. I knew my bridal party would be impressed by Dawn's professionalism and makeup skill to transform them into more glamorous images of themselves. On my wedding day, 12 April 2015, Dawn was on-time and ready to work completing makeup for the bride, matron of honor and mothers of the bride and groom by the requested time. We all received compliments on our makeup throughout the day. Additionally, an engaged friend of mine after seeing my wedding makeup immediately booked Dawn for a make up trial and secured her for her own wedding day! Please take the time to browse the before and after pictures on Dawn's website. Her work speaks for itself. You will not be disappointed. Happy Wedding Planning! Thanks Dawn!

I met Dawn at the bridal salon where I purchased my dress. They held what they called a "styling day" where they allowed their brides to get their hair and makeup done at the salon to see the full picture of what brides are envisioning to look like on their wedding day. At this point of the wedding planning, I hadn't even started to consider make-up. Luckily Dawn was the make-up artist that day. She was incredibly easy to talk to and listened to everything I say. She understood that I wanted to look like myself but just a little more enhanced version. My skin tone was well balanced and it barely felt like I had any type of foundation or powder on. She made my blue eyes pop and my lips were a perfect subtle pink to match my skin tone. Pretty much as soon as I saw the final product I knew I wanted to work with her. Since it was early on in my planning process I met with a few other artist but in the end no one was better than Dawn.
Dawn was extremely flexible when it came to meeting for an additional trial and also with the contract when my bridesmaids changed their minds on whether they wanted to get their make-up done. All in all she did a fabulous job and I will be sure to recommend her to all of my friends with upcoming life events!

I hate makeup. I really do. But Dawn was able to make me look beautiful for my wedding day without the look of a caked on mask of makeup. I didn't feel stiff or constrained by my makeup like I normally do and my friends loved that I still looked like myself but glowing. They were worried I'd come out looking like a made up doll and it would be such a stark contrast on my wedding day since I never wear makeup.

Dawn listened to all my concerns and really made me feel beautiful when I was convinced that I'd walk away disappointed. I'm so happy that this non-girly bride went with Dawn. She has a wide range of skills that included creating a look that wasn't a dramatic thick layer of colored eyeshadow.

Absolute perfection. Dawn was hands down one of my most favorite wedding vendors of my entire wedding. Not only is she AMAZING at make up but she was such a delight to work with. If you want an easy, trustworthy, fun and professional makeup artist then you have to book her. My bridal party looked like movie stars. I'm not even exaggerating. My photographer literally kept referring to my one bridesmaid as "Jennifer Lawrence" because that's exactly who she looked like after Dawn did her makeup. My trial already gave me immediate confidence but what she did on my wedding day is just unreal. But truly- her breathtaking work and passion for her job is just one small reflection of her kind and spirited personality. She had my girls and me rolling with laughter the entire morning of. I had some day-of stress (family drama, who doesn't have it?) but she made it impossible to stress because I was too busy having a great time and gushing over my makeup! The English vocabulary doesn't even have a word that can explain how much I truly LOVED working with Dawn. Thank you thank, Dawn! You are a dream. :)

You & your bridal party were so much fun to work with, which makes my job so much more easy to do! I love the comment about one of your bridesmaids being referred to as Jennifer Lawrence!!! Looking forward to getting pics from your photographer. You were absolutely gorgeous on your big day!
