Liz did an amazing job with my makeup for my wedding day! She knew exactly the look I wanted and I couldn't have found a better artist. She is very sweet and listens to how you want your look to be. She also comes well prepared and knows exactly what to do to help make your big day go smoothly. She even prepared an emergency makeup kit which she gave to my bridesmaid which was really helpful for touch-ups throughout the night. If you are looking for a highly skilled makeup artist who has a lot of experience with weddings, I definitely recommend Liz. I can assure you, she will make you look and feel fantastic!

After searching and searching for a makeup artist for my wedding day, I found Liz. Liz is so talented, extremely patient and very calm. She will work with you until you are completely happy and is so flexible. Liz was able to create just the look I wanted, along with a more natural look for the groom's mother. Despite a stressful wedding day, as we had to move the outdoor ceremony inside at the last minute and that decision needed to be made right in the middle of hair and makeup, Liz did not let it interfere and did an amazing job. Even though Liz is on the expensive side for wedding makeup artists, I am sure it was worth it and I looked gorgeous in the pictures. Liz was on time and it was so comforting to not have to worry at all about anything related to makeup.

Liz did my makeup for a boudoir photo shoot and did an AMAZING job. She did my makeup more dramatically than I am normally comfortable with--think really smoky eyes and lots of eyeshadow--but I LOVED the way it looked in the photos. Liz really knew what she was doing when she assured me that the makeup would look much less intense in the photos, and I love that she had a vision in mind for my look since I had no idea what I wanted besides sexy. I still came out looking like me, but so much sexier and different from my day to day. I will be making a little black book of the photos as a gift to my husband on our wedding day.

Liz also has a great, warm personality, and will make any bride feel comfortable and confident the day of her wedding. I kind of wish I had booked her for my wedding day makeup, but I had booked another stylist before I met her!

Liz did my makeup on my wedding day, as well as my 8 bridesmaids and the mother of the bride, and I could not have been more thrilled with the results. She did an AMAZING job on every single one of us. The overall effect was breathtaking! Liz is SO talented and can create any look you want. I have never seen my friends all look so gorgeous and I have never received so many compliments myself. The entire bridal party was perfect!

Liz is incredibly gifted and versatile, but she is also completely lovely to work with! She has a professional yet relaxed demeanor and was so pleasant to have around while we spent the day getting ready in the suite. I am so glad to have had her for my big day and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch makeup artist!

Liz was absolutely amazing to work with, and by far my favorite of the vendors. She traveled to my hotel on the day of the wedding (which I'd like to add was a long journey), arrived early and had my 'maids, mother and myself all ready before we needed to get out of the door which relieved a lot of stress and gave us girls a time to sit and relax. She provided me with a super cute emergency/touch up kit which was definitely the cherry on top, I was able to kiss my new husband and had lip color to refresh my look before photos. I couldn't recommend Liz more, so if you're in the market for an amazing makeup artist do not wait, contact her soon!

Liz is the best mua in the DC/ Maryland/ Virginia area by far. I wanted a very specific makeup look for my wedding and she delivered! I felt so beautiful on my wedding day mostly because of my perfect makeup. She is so kind, punctual, and talented. I have worked with so many makeup artists in the metropolitan area... Liz is the BEST!

Liz is an extraordinarily talented makeup artist. I've never felt or looked as pretty as I did on my wedding day, thanks to her artistry. I wasn't "made up," I was made beautiful. I could go on and on an on....but you should just hire her now.

(And of course she was prompt, courteous, fun to work with and a super calm presence while on an intense deadline.)

Liz was fantastic! She did a trial for me on the day of my engagement shoot, and made me look totally natural (I don't usually wear much make-up), which in turn made me feel comfortable enough to end up with great pictures. For the wedding, she did my airbrushed make-up, and regular make-up for all the bridesmaids and my mom. They were all very pleased with the results, and I thought they looked gorgeous. My make-up was beautiful (even pleasing my mom, who is generally not easy to please), and lasted through many, many tears (I'm a crier), hugs, a lot of cheek kissing (I'm Hispanic, and that's how we roll), eating, sweating, dancing, and wearing of masks (yes, there were masks at my wedding at one point). She gave me a touch-up kit that included mints, a little nail file, some floss, and other essentials, including some extra lip stick in case I needed it, but I hardly had to do anything to my face all night. Plus, Liz was totally cool with cameras being shoved in her face (our videographer wanted to capture some detail stuff) while she worked, and chatted with us all morning - it felt like having a friend there, not a stranger. She made an already perfect day even better - thank you!!

Liz was one of my favorite vendors to work with and I would gladly recommend her to anyone! Not only was she extremely knowledgeable of her craft, she was also very responsive and personable, too. During my airbrush wedding makeup trial with her, she listened carefully to what I had envisioned for my look, and when she was finished with my trial, and I got to see it in the mirror, it literally exceeded my expectations and I knew I could completely trust her with doing my makeup on my big day.

When the big day arrived, she showed up early and really took her time with me. While she was doing my makeup, she brought up things we had talked about during the makeup trial (she has a great memory!), which totally made me feel at ease. I know this sounds sappy, but when she was finished and I got to look in the mirror, I have never felt more beautiful in my life. Liz has a true talent with bringing out people's best features with her makeup application and making them look and feel their best. Despite 103 degree heat on my wedding day, my makeup stayed intact the entire day and night!

Liz came to the hotel I was getting ready at the day of my wedding to do my makeup and the makeup for my mother and mother-in-law. She did an excellent job. She was on time, and had brought a million things with her to work with so she was prepared for all skin types. She does a fanstastic job with airbrushing and I highly recommend it for the wedding day. The mothers didn't look too made up but had just the right amount of makeup. I had had a trial run with her a few months in advance to figure out what I wanted and that was a big help. So, we both knew exactly what to expect the day of the wedding. I did think the trial run was a bit overpriced, but I highly recommend getting one. You just won't have time the day of the wedding to try and figure out what you want done.

I hired Liz to do make-up for two events: my Sangeet and my wedding. I don't usually wear a lot of make-up so it was important that I still felt like myself. Liz achieved a wonderful, dramatic look for the Sangeet; playing up my eyes while keeping the rest of the palette neutral so I didn't feel overdone. Everyone commented on how beautiful I looked and how perfect my make-up was for the occasion.

For the wedding she did my make-up as well as my mother's and bridesmaids. Liz arrived promptly to the hotel and set up all of her make-up. I was amazed at how much she brought with her, ensuring that she had exactly the right colors for each of us. I had a number of different skin tones in my bridal party and Liz made everyone look flawless while playing up our best features. My girls said they all felt so beautiful. She provided special attention to my 12-year old sister, making sure she felt included and created a soft, age appropriate look for her. My sister was glowing! We LOVED the foundation Liz used too. It felt light, but provided plenty of coverage. Liz was great about working with my hair stylist to make sure I was ready when needed and my make-up was set before my hair was finalized. My husband said I was the most gorgeous he had ever seen me! My make-up held up through all of my crying at the ceremony and during the toasts and through our intense dance session. I looked just as Liz had left me! I received multiple compliments about how flawless my make-up looked and how my make-up perfectly matched our different wedding events. Guests were impressed the same person achieved such different looks.

Liz is so talented and the sweetest person to be around. I felt like I was getting ready with one of my girlfriends. At our trial she really listened to me and what I wanted and how I wanted to feel. Unlike another review, I felt Liz's trial fee was right in line with the DC market. Her day-of wedding prices are also reasonable and less than some of the other make-up artists I had looked at. All-in-all she is a fantastic find and one you should not hesitate to contact. I feel so lucky my wedding planner introduced me to her. I am already going back to her for her to do my make-up for another event later this summer!

Liz is very talented, personable, and sweet. She was always quick to respond to my emails, answered any questions I had, and reassured me about my insecurities. She was quite flexible about the time of our appointment, which got changed several times due to rearranging the wedding day schedule. Her work itself is also amazing. I felt truly beautiful and as if she had chosen the perfect palette to bring out my features. I've already personally recommended her to a friend, and I will certainly hire her if I need makeup done in the future.

I have signed Liz to do my make-up and that of my bridesmaids for my upcoming wedding. While my wedding day has not yet occurred, I have already done my trial with Liz in preparation for the big day and she is AMAZING!! I am very particular about my make-up and wanted a natural look, but with just a little bit of drama without looking overdone. Liz's ideas were fantastic and she created the exact look I had been imagining. My make-up looked flawless and felt so lightweight, not caked on. I did a lot of research on DC make-up artists before signing with Liz. She really listened to me and was so knowledgeable about make-up and used top quality products. She made me feel so relaxed, I felt like I was with a good girlfriend. I can't wait for her to do the make-up on my wedding day!!

Liz was wonderful. She drove out to my house to do my makeup for my engagement photos. She was very professional and so friendly. She made sure to do exactly what I wanted and asked me plenty of times if I liked the way the makeup looked. I love her creativity and she uses all top of line products. She also offered me a touch-up kit with the lipcolor she used for the photoshoot so I wouldn't ruin "the look." I can't wait to work with her again on my big day.

I’m the girl that usually never wears any make-up. I like to keep things simple, and anytime I had ever gotten my make-up done it always made me feel so over done. So when it came to my wedding day, I was a bit torn on whether I should do it myself or splurge to get it professionally done. After some urging from my sister, and my bridesmaids (who wanted to be pampered), I decided I would give it a shot. A dear friend of mine who had used Liz before for and event, referred her to me. I went to our first consultation with very low expectations; Remember no one has ever done my makeup the way I like it. Not only was Liz friendly, and fun, but she made the consultation about me. She listened to what I wanted and not what she thought I wanted. Liz far superseded my expectations, and she made me feel so beautiful on such a special day. My husband, who is not one to tear up, got a little watery eyed when he saw me for the first time. It was very touching, and I know that Liz had a little something to do with that. Thank you Liz!

She will even make you custom foundation so that your skin looks perfect. She is super sweet and flexible. You will not be disappointed. :)

She is a truly talented make-up artist and her knack for choosing colors that perfectly complement your skin color & features is spot on.
Her makeup is never too heavy or cakey, it's just right. As a photographer, I can't stress enough the vast difference a talented make-up artist makes in attaining those beautiful close-up portrait shots of the bride! Liz really knows her stuff and she's reliable, very friendly and incredibly TALENTED. She really knows how to apply good quality makeup that will last for hours and still look fresh, giving you one less thing to worry about.

Highly recommended!
