Lauren was absolutely wonderful to work with! From the beginning she was very responsive and easy to schedule a trial with. She had great recommendations of skin care products to use specifically for my skin after doing my trial with her. I absolutely loved my makeup and so did all of my bridesmaids. She is very professional, but also super friendly and personable, which is a wonderful thing to have to help calm a nervous bride on her wedding day! I would highly recommend Lauren for your wedding makeup, you will not be disappointed!

I really enjoyed working with Lauren of Real Doll Makeup. She did a terrific job with me and my bridal party, and made us all look fabulous on my wedding day.

Lauren is delightful to be around -- she's upbeat, complimentary, and easygoing, which are all exactly what you want to boost your confidence and help you feel comfortable about your looks on your wedding day. She's also highly professional -- she knows exactly what she's doing and makes you feel confident in her skills.

During my trial and during consultations before, Lauren did a good job of helping me arrive at the look I wanted. She incorporated the look I described and had included in the photos I showed her, but balanced it with her sense of the right feel for my dress and the vibe of my event. I wanted a more glam look than your typical everyday fresh-faced bridal look, and she was able to navigate my requests with ease. She also incorporated my input rather than acting like the "professional knows best" sort of vendor that ignores what their clients ask for, which I really appreciated.

My bridesmaids didn't come with ideas for how they wanted their makeup done, but a few were reticent about things like false lashes or camera-ready makeup. Lauren did a great job finding looks that worked for them and which made them feel comfortable. They all looked gorgeous after their makeup was done.

Lauren brought an assistant free of charge to help expedite makeup, which I also really appreciated. It was nice that she was cognizant of the timeframe and planned accordingly to ensure that we were on time. Her communications and scheduling were also prompt and professional -- she was an overall pleasure to work with.

Lauren of Real Doll Makeup is a true artist! She did my makeup as well as my bridesmaids and my mother’s for my November 8, 2015 DC wedding. The ladies and I were so happy with our look and most importantly, our makeup lasted all day and still looked amazing by the end of the night. Our makeup photographed so professionally in both indoor and outdoor settings—we received so many compliments and felt so special! I highly recommend Lauren if you are looking for a talented, zero ego makeup artist in the DMV for your wedding day. I can’t wait to book Lauren for future events!

Booking Lauren as my bridal makeup artist was one of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning process. She asked all the right questions and was very organized with the booking process. Prior to the wedding, I made a trial appointment with her. I highly recommend doing a trial. It made the makeup process that much more seamless for the wedding day. The week before my wedding she provided me with a final confirmation that included all the day of details, timeline and makeup prep tips, which was extremely helpful. She was punctual and professional on the day of my wedding and she even gifted me with a pouch with products for lip touch-ups and a compact. She was extremely thoughtful and so easy to work with. I'm so glad I booked her for my wedding!

Lauren was so fantastic to work with! From the day I first contacted her months and months before the wedding up until the day of, she was incredibly responsive to all my emails and questions, offered great advice and tips, and was just generally so sweet. After my trial with Lauren, I changed my mind about the look I wanted - and Lauren was so patient and helpful when I sent her tons of pictures. On the day of my wedding, she was prompt and worked both quickly and carefully. All my bridesmaids looked phenomenal, and I was absolutely in love with my makeup look! Just as important, she kept us all calm and laughing and having fun as we were getting ready. Thanks, Lauren - you rock!!

I highly recommend Lauren. She does great work - whether you have an exact idea of what you want or are unsure of the look you are going for. All of my bridesmaids also loved how their make-up turned out (and I did too!). Her prices are reasonable, you get a great service, and she comes on site (a HUGE plus on a busy wedding day). She is very responsive - gets right back to you no matter how many questions or concerns. She is excellent to work with and also has lots of great hair stylist contacts that she works very well with.

Such a pleasure working with Lauren of Real Doll Makeup. Lauren was incredibly helpful and responsive in planning, and very professional and fun to work with the morning of our wedding. She kept a rather large bridal party to a perfect timeline and actually ended ahead of schedule. My bridal makeup and all my bridesmaids was beautiful and soft, professional without being over the top. I will absolutely recommend her to all family and friends in the future!
