Dawn was soooo awesome to have do makeup at my wedding last weekend!! I first had my trial with her a few months ago and was really looking for someone who could nail big dramatic eyes and keep the rest more simple. She did just that. She really does smokey eyes beautifully! She arrived on time, set up and got work. The plan was for her to do 3 of us, but one bridesmaid jumped in after seeing how great everyone else's makeup looked! She is also very sweet and professional and just fun to be around. I highly recommend her. She does a BEAUTIFUL job! Looking at the photos now I can't get over how great we all looked!!

Dawn did my makeup for my wedding at the Willard in Washington, DC on March 29, 2014. I reached out to her only a month before the event, and it was one of the few days she had available! We did a test run at her house 2-3 weeks before the wedding, and she was very receptive to what kind of style I was looking for, and what changes I wanted to see for the actual wedding date. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed the entire time with her laid back, but completely professional, attitude. On the day of the wedding, she was already set up in the room with a smile when I showed up! A lot of make-up artists require that a certain number of girls get their make-up done, but she was very flexible on that since I was the only person that day who needed make-up done. She did a fantastic job and I got compliments all night. Would highly recommend her!

I was assigned to Dawn when I called Bridal Artistry (as recommended by online reviews) for my wedding makeup and I couldn't have gotten luckier! I was thrilled with my final look - which was subtle with a hint of glamour, a difficult look to achieve as a South Asian bride! At my trial at her studio, Dawn appeared genuinely interested in what my vision was, and along with making her own recommendations was very receptive to any changes or additions I suggested. Though it took a while, at no time did I feel rushed. She even willingly let me come in a second time to mull again over lip color choices. She was punctual to arrive on the day and cheerfully accommodated additional family members at the last minute - all of whom were happy with their look. Her work and attitude is amazing - truly a pleasure to work with!

OMG!!!! OMG!!!! Awesome talent.

Ladies,
Dawn is AMAZING at her craft as a makeup artist. I was not one for wearing makeup, but after working with her I wear makeup everyday now. Not as dramatic as made me up for my photo shoot, but just enough to enhance my beauty. She provided services for my boudoir photo shoot and my wedding. I can't say enough nice things about Dawn. She is a real "down to earth" person and she listens to her client's requests. She knew the exact color combinations that worked best for me. We even experimented a little with the colors. I had too much fun and It was truly a pleasure working with her. She has a client for life!

Dawn did my make-up for my wedding, and she did an absolutely fantastic job! After my make-up trial with her, I ended up completely changing the style of make-up that I wanted for my actual wedding day, and Dawn easily went with the changes, and did a beautiful job. She also did my mom and maid of honor's make-up, and fake eyelashes for my bridesmaids, and everyone loved what she did.

Dawn and her team provided hair and makeup services for my daughter's wedding. Everyone was extremely pleased with their appearance and we can't wait to see the pictures. The team arrived on time and worked diligently with us to make sure we were satisfied with their work. Would definitely recommend them to brides.

Dawn is absolutely amazing!!! She made me beautiful for my engagement photos and more beautiful on my wedding day. I couldn't believe it was me...:-) her personality is such a sweet one. She made me and my 10 bridesmaids feel comfortable. I was amazed that she serviced all us on her own. And we were on time.
I appreciate Dawn for encouraging me and reminding me that it was my special day. My hubby loves her for making me beautiful as well. Everyone was impressed!!!

I recommend Dawn to anyone because she has the right touch and the right spirit!

Love you Dawn!!

Dawn was amazing! She made me look and feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day! I left glamorous, but not at all overdone. And she did the same for several of my bridesmaids and was very flexible about adding an additional one at the last minute. She came to my hotel at no additional cost, making it very easy for me. I would HIGHLY recommend Dawn for wedding makeup!!

I first met Dawn at a Bridal Beauty day that my bridal salon was having. She was super nice, personable, and had such a positve energy surrounding her that even before she finished applying my make-up I knew that I wanted her to work with me for my wedding. I was not disappointed. The make-up that Dawn did for me at my bridal salon was fantastic and I booked her a few days later for my wedding. I later went for my trial which was part of my bridal package. Dawn listened to my ideas about what I wanted my make-up to look like on my wedding day and gave me some of her own. The end result was that I looked GORGEOUS on my wedding day. Dawn helped me to look and feel beautiful. She also did make-up for my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law and everyone loved their look. One of my bridesmaids even hired her for her own wedding after her experience with Dawn at my wedding. Dawn has since done my make-up for a photo session and other events and I have been just as happy on those occasions. I know that I am in good hands when Dawn does my make-up. She is the best make-up artist I have ever worked with and I wont work with anyone else.

Wow!!!! Dawn is the best of the best!! She did my makeup for myself(the bride), 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. We were able to setup a trial 3 months prior to my wedding with the hair stylist as well. So I got an opportunity to see a complete look. At the trial, I gave her an idea of the style of my wedding and how I wanted to look. She took the look to an even higher level then I imagined. It was gorgeous. She also reassured me I could make any changes I wanted to the look between the trial and wedding time. It was totally up to me. Since I had a midday wedding beginning at 11am, it was important to start early on the wedding day. She was on time at 6am. She worked fast and completed everyone's look flawlessly. Everyone looked like they were on a cover of a magazine. Everyone commented on how perfect and flawless my makeup was. I wear makeup daily, but she took it to another level. The wedding was outside in August and she reassured me the makeup would stay all day. And that it did. My pictures look great at the end of the day. She even gave me lipstick and powder to freshen myself up when needed. She was very professional and she added to the calmness while we all got ready that morning. You can tell she is a PRO at this. Look no further when booking a makeup artist!!!!

Make up artist Dawn Newsome was my saving grace. A week before my wedding my make up artist cancelled. After going thru reviews and recommendations I contacted Dawn. With minimal notice she was willing to make adjustments and work with me and my bridal party. She brought her services to my wedding host hotel...and waited for me as I was a "late" bride. Dawn did more than apply makeup-she provided skin care tips as well as took the nervous edge off of getting married. Additionally her make up work was flawless. She managed to provide a natural and beautiful look on skin types ranging from dark skin and dry to very light skin and oily and age ranges from 18 to 40+. Bottom line-she is talented and trained.

Dawn really helped me feel confident and beautiful on my wedding and she is a friendly person who takes pride in her work. I truly impressed with her skill and professionalism (as a prior makeup trial with another artist was a huge disappointment). She handled my very nervous mom very well during the makeup application process and it warmed my heart so much! My bridesmaids also loved their makeup and we got so many compliments. My makeup lasted all day and even with me getting smooshed with cake in the face!!! I also appreciated how she would listen carefully to my own personal preferences on how I normally do my makeup and was very receptive if I wanted to make little changes before we were all done. She was an absolute joy to work with and I absolutely recommend her to any bride.

Dawn did a thoroughly amazing job on my wedding day bridal makeup. I have never been one to wear a lot of makeup (nor do I have the skills to aptly apply it) and Dawn made sure my wedding makeup was incredibly natural and very complimentary. I had an incredibly diverse group for my bridal party and Dawn was able to accentuate everyone's personal look with ease.
What was particularly wonderful was that we had initially stated that only 4 of us would be getting our makeup done - but sure enough, as soon as the rest of the party saw how great Dawn was everyone lined up for their turn. Dawn was able to do makeup for all 10 of us in the same amount of time and without cutting any corners.

I would recommend Dawn's services to anyone!

Dawn did an incredible job in doing make-up for me and for my bridesmaids. I wanted a natural look for my make-up and I was really happy with what Dawn did - it was beautiful yet natural!! I felt great and beautiful on my wedding in large part due to Dawn. Dawn was also able to do our make-up quickly which is really important at a wedding where several people need to have their make-up done and there is limited time.

I would highly recommend Dawn and she is great work with!

I booked Dawn Newsome for my March 2013 wedding and was thrilled with her work! Julian my now husband, still comments on how beautiful I was on our wedding day. Dawn made me feel natural and beautiful but special for the big day. I was satisfied with my trial session with Dawn but on the day of the wedding when she saw my wedding gown she said she had to “GLAM ME UP” a bit more and that is exactly what she did without making it too much. My aunt said Dawn made me look 5lbs thinner, which was a compliment for me. When the doors of the church opened Julian’s mouth opened and eyes widened. Dawn is a consummate professional; her private studio is clean and comfortable a perfect setting for trial sessions. She arrived on time, set-up and was ready to work. Dawn had no problem staying on schedule. Most important she made sure I was calm and kept me way from the buzz going on around me.

Dawn did an AWESOME job. I got so many compliments on my makeup on my wedding day. She met me at a local hotel and was on time and professional. Dawn remember the exact look I was going for from my makeup trial months prior, and recreated it perfectly! She was pleasent and even gave my Maid of Honor some pro advice on her makeup application even though she was not a client. Dawn also provided me with a kit so that I can touch up my makeup during the reception to keep that fresh look. I would highly recommend her to any bride, anywhere. Again she is GREAT and her work is flawless!

Dawn is a truly talented artist! I have never felt more beautiful than the day of my wedding. I was going for a classic "Old Hollywood" look and she was right on point. I had changed the makeup style from what I had originally asked for at my pre wedding trial, but Dawn didn't miss a beat. She was exactly in tune with the new look I was describing. My skin was FLAWLESS...and I have trouble with redness and blotches so this was something that was important to me! Also, she is a genius when it comes to eyebrows! Mine have never looked better! People don't realize how much this can change the features in a face and really bring out the eyes.

Dawn did makeup for my sisters and mother as well. My mom was really nervous about having hers done (she is not a woman that is open to change as far as her makeup routine) but I insisted she get pampered. Dawn was so patient with her and really listened to her concerns. They came up with a beautiful "natural" look that highlighted and enhanced my mom's best features.

I could not have been happier with Dawn's work! She is nothing short of amazing! I would honestly recommend her to anyone for their wedding day!

Dawn is Amazing! She rescued me at the very last minute and accommodated what turned out to be 13 Ladies of all ages, moms, bridesmaids, sisters, junior bridesmaids, flower girls. Unfortunately all my ladies decided to sign up for makeup at the very last minute, (a week or two before) including myself. I thought I would do my own make up but changed my mind and Dawn made it seem easy to do so :). She came out and brought assistants to help and finish everyone on time without rushing anyone. My Bridesmaids later told me that they had never felt so beautiful. I felt just as amazing as they did, I was very confident through my pictures. Even after kissing and hugging over 200 guest I still felt and looked amazing. My make up never moved or changed. If it had she provided me with a touch up kit and gave all my girls touch up lip glosses as well.

Dawn is fabulous, a true professional, a real talent and a wonderfully calming presence on the craziest day of your life. We had a fun and relaxed trial at her lovely in-home studio with me and two of my girl friends. We talked about what kind of look I wanted for my wedding, what my "every day" look is like, and I felt like we'd find a good medium. I left there feeing done up but still like myself. On my wedding day she arrived right on time (maybe a tad early, yay!), and set up shop in my suite. We had my handful of bridesmaids go first, and then me and she even had time built in for a couple of girls to make game-time decisions. She got all five of us done in about two hours. I felt amazing, like my best self. I wasn't nervous all day until I sat still in her chair, but she was so calm and we just had a great time. Dawn can teach you a thing or two about how to do your own makeup too!

Dawn was a pleasure to work with from my trial appointment to the day of my wedding. Priot to meeting, she asked me to send pictures of the look I was trying to achieve. The trial appointment was fun and she helped me get comfortable with being "made up" and with the idea of wearing false eyelashes. I didn't want them at first but they really do look great in photos! On the day of the wedding, she arrived early to set up her equipment and was ready to work at our agreed upon start time. Her calm and easy going personality was a Godsend because it was a frantic day. Dawn used her expertise to create a polised, natural look that was appropriate for my daytime wedding. She also did a fabulous job with my mother and maid of honor's makeup. The makeup application was a special treat for my mom who really enjoyed the movie star treatment for the day. I would highly recommend Dawn's services to any bride!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn Newsome w/ Pro's @ Artistry after experiencing a horrific make up testing with another vendor. Upon meeting Dawn, I was very pleased with her professionalism and demeanor. She arrived in enough time before myself as she had all makeup and applications in order/organized and was waiting for me. As I am a stickler about time, that impressed me very much! After she had me sit, she asked me how did I want to look on my special day (not how she planned to make me look). I was very exact about the look I was trying to achieve. Dawn exceeded my expectations and this was just the test. I fell in love with her immediately. She was professional, she showed a love for makeup/art, she communicated the whole while to inform me of what she was applying and the look it should be expected to give me and I loved the fact that she valued my opions/suggestions.

The day of my wedding, Dawn out-did herself!! When I got out of her chair, I could not believe how beautiful my face looked. I was FLAWLESS! To this day people who have attended my wedding are still complimenting on how beautiful I looked. That they compared me to a doll. Dawn has an amazing gift and a beautiful personality to go with it. For all my future events, she will be who I call on.

Thank you Dawn! I don't know what I would have done if I had not met you!

Dawn Newsome is one AWESOME make-up artist. Dawn made me look so beautiful on my wedding day. She arrived early and was ready to get to work. She has a great presence about her that makes you feel confident and comfortable in allowing her to work her magic. All my family and friends are still commenting on how well the make-up was applied and how it did not appear to be to much or too little. It was PERFECT. I would recommend Dawn to anyone. I will be using her again for any special event I may have. My new husband said that he had never seen me look so wonderful and radiant. What was amazing was that I was able to meet with Dawn months before my wedding and she fully explained the colors she would use and the make-up. On the day of the wedding, she provided exactly what she said she would and even more. She held my hand and stopped the tears from messing up my make-up in the process. Great Artist and a genuine person and I recommend anyone to trust her for any special event you may have..
Thanks Dawn for being you!! The Happy Bride (Karen)

I was fortunate enough to work with Dawn Newsome before and on the day of my wedding. Right from the start I felt comfortable and relaxed and it was evident that I was in good hands, Dawn is a true professional! She has years of experience and it shows. Since I live in DC and have a small, not extremely well lit apartment, I was able to hold my trial session in her home studio, which was conveniently located close to my office. Dawn really worked with me to discover a look that I felt not only comfortable with but also made me feel beautiful. I was worried about not "looking like myself" on my wedding day and I was really looking for someone who did an enhanced (and more professional) look of what I typically do myself, I found that in Dawn! A few of my bridesmaids got their make-up done as well for my wedding and they all cannot stop raving about the eyelash extensions and the incredible job she did on their make-up! In fact, one of my girls is going to use her for her own wedding. Additionally, my Mom got her make-up done and she looked,and consequently felt, beautiful. That was very important to me as I knew that it was a very special day for her as well and I wanted her to feel amazing too! I had my hair and make-up done in our hotel suite with all my girls and my Mom there, Dawn and her assistant stepped right in like they were old time friends and helped to make the experience relaxed as well as memorable. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for an excellent make-up experience!

AND on top of that my mother was HOVERING over her inspecting everything (sorry about that Dawn) and she was cool as a cucumber.
I have been trying to recreate my wedding eyebrows ever since Dawn did them and I still can't quite get it. Dawn, do an eyebrow seminar and I'm THERE. Would HIGHLY recommend.

I had a wonderful experience with Dawn Newsome at my recent wedding in DC. Everything was coordinated with Dawn, who was professional, responsive, and so very nice to work with. Dawn and Pia E did makeup ( including individually applied eye lashes) to myself, my mother and my TEN bridesmaids ( all very different looking with different complexions and personal styles). They did a beautiful job on everyone. It was exactly what I had wanted for my natural bridal look and my bridesmaids all loved their makeup. Dawn and Pia travelled to our location, were very flexible and made the getting ready process go very smoothly, despite the number of people involved. I would strongly recommend Pros at Artistry.

In addition, I do not wear a lot of make-up on a daily basis, so I was not sure if I was going to be too overdone. Dawn worked with me via e-mail get a photo of me so she was prepared for my complexion and skin type. She truly made me look like the best version of me for my special day. Thanks Dawn!!!!

Dawn did just that and more. Even though we have been married 8 months now I still love looking at myself on my wedding day. I recieved SOOOOOO many great comments about my makeup and just how natural it made me look. I felt like a pure queen that day. And my maid of honor also got her makeup done and wow, Dawn transformered her!!!!!! The price was extremely reasonable and had done a lot of research with different makeup vendors before making my decision. I will always have her number on standby for any occassion I need to look my best for. THANKS AGAIN DAWN!!!

She arrived on time even when myself or my bridal party hadn't arrived yet. Dawn came prepared with lots of different colors, foundations, and she even bought an assistant. Dawn knew exactly what look we all wanted. Dawn's sense of style and creativity definitely shines through her work. Dawn made myself and my bridal party look beautiful! My bridal party as well as guest from the wedding are still commenting on how beautiful we looked.

It was absolutely wonderful working with Dawn!
From the very beginning, she was very patient with me, especially when I got the wrong amount in cash for the trial and had to run out to the bank!

The make up the day of was completely not what we had tried for the trial though. Dawn had misplaced her notes for the trial, but thankfully I had all my sample pictures on my ipad. From that, Dawn was able to create a new look for my wedding the day of....which I thought was WAY better than what we had originally decided at the trial!

In general, the quality of the application was absolutely flawless. I danced the night away, sweated up a storm in my super heavy dress, and yet pictures at the end of the night showed me still as a radiant, beautiful bride, without a single speck of make up out of place, no panda eyes, and no smearing. My only complaint is that while I'm pretty sure I asked Dawn to use waterproof mascara/eyeliner, pictures our photographer took of my crying at the alter showed black make up running down my face.

In general though, Dawn is a true artist, with a sure hand, and a wonderful eye for bringing out the natural beauty of a bride. I was concerned because it's generally hard to find a make up artist for Asian skin (too many of them want to use purples/blue on the lids...etc.), but the final result couldn't have been any better. Thank you so much Dawn!
