Marti and her assistant Heather were fantastic! Marti not only gave me the most beautiful makeup ever (seriously, I looked like a princess out of a fairy tale!) but she also has a great personality. My girls and I had so much fun getting ready with the two of them! They kept us laughing the entire time and that was priceless on my wedding morning. She is worth it just to make sure you are happy and having fun on the morning of your big day. My girls all looked the best I've ever seen them, including my mother! They both listened to whatever we wanted and worked with our different personalities and faces to really bring out the individual beauty in each of us! I can't thank Marti enough for being so sweet to me from my trial all the way up to the big day and for making me a beautiful bride! I would recommend her to anyone who needs makeup done for any event in their life! She will not disappoint!

Marcia did makeup for me (the bride), my sister, and my sisters-in-law. I was very nervous about looking too "made-up." Marcia was very reassuring and helped calm those fears. My makeup looked great - I looked like myself - and she did a wonderful job with my sisters, too. She even helped make a few fixes to my dress as I was getting into it! One more thing: we got married during the Cherry Blossom parade in downtown DC. Traffic was a mess. Marcia checked-in with me several days before to tell me that she knew it was happening and would leave extra time to get there. I appreciate that she planned ahead for that, and I didn't have to alert her.

Marti was fantastic to work with! Prior to the wedding, I met with her for a trial run. She provided suggestions based on my features and eye color, while also noting my likes and dislikes. She is very flexible and had no problem using some of my makeup on the big day! She came to my hotel room to do makeup for 7 girls and brought all of the makeup essentials with her, including a chair for us to sit in. Marti has her own line of makeup that is very nice. (I use some of her products on a daily basis.) Marti achieved a very natural look that really enhanced our beauty. Using Marti as our makeup artist gave me one less thing to worry about as she did a truly fantastic job. I will definitely use her services again in the future!

I found Marti online to do my make-up for my wedding. We had an initial consult where she asked me questions about the look I was going for, and offered her suggestions. I definitely felt like she listened, but also at the same time offered her expertise. I would highly, highly recommend Marti -- she absolutely cares about her clients and wants your event to be perfect, and she will go above and beyond to help in any way she can. Case in point: a week before my wedding, my hair stylist cancelled. I called Marti immediately to ask for recommendations on people she knew. I called her at around 8 pm in the evening, figuring she would get back to me the next day. No. She called me back no more than 5 minutes later with a list of hair stylists!! She even called them for me. Also, Marti has a way of completely calming her clients down. At a few points during the day, as many people were coming in and out of my hotel room, I became a bit stressed out. Marti could sense this. She would talk very softly to me, look straight in my eyes, and say something to calm me down. I can't even remember what it was she said, but she totally calmed me down. She is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. And to top it off, I received so many wonderful complements about my make-up. Thank you, Marti!!

Flawless. Marti did an amazing job on my make up as well as all my bridesmaids. She was very attentive to exactly the look I wanted. The trial went very well but I did ask for less blush and eye liner for the day of the wedding. She did exactly that and I was so happy. I just don't like a lot of make up but most people would want that especially for pictures. All my bridesmaids were so happy with Marti and how they looked. Again, she paid attention to exactly what each girl wanted. You could ask for anything, and Marti will make sure it happens! The day of the wedding she was so great to have while getting ready. She is so personable and genuinely excited for you! It really was a pleasure to have Marti as one of my vendors. I will continue to use her if I need my make up done again.

I just loved working with Marti! She was so helpful and knowledgable! She did fantastic work and helped us all feel beautiful and confident on the wedding day. I loved working with Marti in the months leading up to the wedding too, she shared in my excitement and was so kind the whole way through.

Marti's work is exceptional but what really sets her apart is her positive energy. It was so fun spending the day with Marti getting ready and that is what I will remember most about working with her! I also learned lots of helpful tips for my own beauty and make-up, an added bonus! :) Thank you Marti!

I hired Marti from Tica cosmetics as Mother of the Bride. She did my make up my mothers make up my sisters make up my two nieces and my mother in law as well as the mother of the of the groom. She came on time and finished every one in plenty of time. She was an absolute delight to work with and would use her again in a heartbeat.

I never wear makeup so I was very hesitant about hiring someone to do my makeup for the wedding. I was afraid they would cake it on and I wouldn't look like myself. Marti definitely did a wonderful job making sure I felt comfortable with what she was doing during the trial and the wedding day. The makeup was not over the top. It felt light, looked natural, and made me look like a better version of me. Marti managed to do makeup for me, my mom, my mother-in-law, and all 3 bridesmaids without any of us feeling rushed. She was very flexible with how long she could spend with us. At the end of the night we all still looked awesome. Thanks, Marti!

Marti is PHENOMENAL! Not only is she extremely skilled at what she does but she has such beautiful energy - just the kind of person you will want around as you're getting ready. She is full of laughter, kindness, professionalism - all while expressing joy in her work and your event. Don't hesitate to contact Marti and have a trial session with her, you won't regret it and will likely sign with her immediately. My twin sister went with me to my trial and we had so much fun chatting with Marti who was very responsive to both of our make-up questions. I liked how quickly she understood that I wanted a beautiful, didn't-try-too-hard, natural look -- me "enhanced" :-)

Marti, thank you for your kindness and incredible responsiveness throughout the entire process not only towards me but also towards my family. All my love, Melissa

I am so grateful to Marti with Tica Beauty for helping to make me feel so beautiful on my wedding day. From the moment I met with Marti, I felt like I had nothing to worry about - which is exactly what a soon-to-be bride wants to feel. She was extremely friendly, helpful and professional throughout the whole process. Any question I had or recommendation I sought, Marti was always promptly there to help me out. Marti and her daughter Olivia did makeup for my entire bridal party which was a total of 10 people. The whole thing went smoothly and was so enjoyable. My bridal party and especially my flower girl LOVED them both! They are true professionals and I would highly recommend them to any bride or anyone needing on-site professional makeup service!!! Truly can't say enough positive things about my experience with Tica Beauty!!

Tica Beauty is AWESOME!! Marti and Marcia did the makeup for me on my wedding day, as well as my 8 bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law. I should mention that I worked as Marti's assistant for the year leading up to my wedding and had the opportunity to see her in action while assisting her at a number of weddings during that time. Tica Makeup Artists are incredibly talented and they LISTEN. Their first priority is to enhance the natural beauty of the client and deliver on this promise every single time. I could tell that my bridesmaids and mothers felt beautiful by the way they carried themselves with such confidence throughout the day! It really makes a differnce to have professional makeup done, and Tica strikes the perfect balance of elegant makeup and a calming, positive demeanor. I would recommend them 100 times over. I have also become a loyalist to the Tica's line of high quality makeup, which all the makeup artists use and is available for purchase. I can't speak highly enough of Marti and her team of wonderful women who are dedicated to making women of all ages look and feel their best!

She did an amazing job not only with my makeup, but also with my bridesmaids and my mother's makeup. She was attentive to all of our concerns and ideas. We looked gorgeous on our wedding day! She also has her own popular makeup line so if any bride likes the way she looked on her wedding day, she can purchase the products that Marti used. I would recommend Marti to any bride who is trying to find a makeup artist!

I contacted Marti at the last minute for wedding make-up and she had no hesitation accomodating me. She provided a trial which was fantastic, so I booked her services for my wedding day, and she did a wonderful job. The bridesmaids kept commenting how glamorous I looked because of her make-up services. Marti truly does a wonderful job, she's very professional, and she's also very comfortable to work with. She strives to make you look your best while also listening to what you want - I would recommend her to anyone who needs make-up services.

From the moment I met Marti I knew she was going to do my make up for my wedding! She put me at ease immediately and asked me what look I was going for. While she listened to me she also gave some helpful ideas. She captured the look I was going for which was natural but glamorous. I was impressed with Tica products, too She worked well with my bridesmaids, but more importantly was great with my mom! My mom has allergies and when she expressed a concern about reactions to products Marti said "bring your own an we'll work with it. Talk about flexible. My mom looked so elegant and was so happy with her makeup! Thank you Marti for making me feel extra special on my wedding day!! You're the best!!!

Marti did a great job with my makeup on my wedding day! I received so many compliments about how great I looked throughout the night. I normally do not wear makeup so I wanted to make sure I didn't look "done up" but Marti did a great job achieving that natural look. She also did my mother and mother-in-law's makeup and did great with them as well. I was so glad that she spoke Spanish because my mother-in-law does not speak a lot of English. She also has a laid-back personality, which was so great to have during a stressful day! I definitely recommend Tica for special occasion makeup needs.

When I was searching for a make-up artist, Marti responded to me very quickly. She was the first person I went to for a trial and that was that.

She listened to what I wanted and kept checking in to make sure it was still on target. She took notes so she could achieve the same exact look on the wedding day. My make-up was perfect!

She also did my bridesmaids and my Mom, and everyone's make up looked lovely.

She is very skillful at make-up, but also friendly and fun. Thank you Marti!

We worked with Heather from Tica and she was fantastic! She did my makeup, as well as makeup for my mother and sister (my maid of honor). I had very specific ideas about how I wanted my makeup to look, and Heather did an amazing job of creating the look I wanted. From the trial application, through a few email exchanges and on the morning of my wedding, Heather was responsive, full of ideas and was incredibly cheerful and positive. I highly recommend Heather and Tica - you will be thrilled with the result!

If you are searching for someone to do your wedding makeup do not hire anyone else except for Marti!! Yes my makeup was flawless, yes it lasted all night, these are all things that a lot of makeup artists out there can do. The difference with Marti is that she actually listened to me. She knew exactly what I wanted after only speaking shortly before my trial and she nailed it. I looked like myself which was so important, it was the perfect natural look. I got compliments throughout the day and night on my makeup alone. My husband even said something, and he never notices that kind of thing!! Also, I feel like it's worth mentioning that Marti is one of the sweetest women in the world. She had a way of making me feel totally comfortable both at my trial and more importantly, on my big day. All of the girls who had their makeup done by Marti looked fabulous as well. I'm looking forward to keep going back to her studio whenever I need anything special done!!

Tica provided me with makeup services for my wedding and I strongly recommend using this company! I waited until the last minute to hire a makeup artist and Marti could not have been nicer or more accommodating. She scheduled me with Marcia who did an incredible job and set me right at ease from the beginning. I am not a big makeup person, but Marcia did a great job highlighting my best features and making me look as natural as possible - essentially the best version of myself! Thanks to Marti and Marcia for providing such excellent service.

I first met Marti as a bridesmaid in a friends wedding. She did an amazing job that day and I knew that I wanted her for my wedding as well. Marti is the epitome of a customer-first businesswoman. She was polite, courteous, and always made sure that I was satisfied with her work. In addition to being a true professional who did incredible work--she was fun to have around the morning before my wedding! She was so kind and patient, doing whatever she could to make every girl feel their best. I would highly recommend Marti's work to anyone I know--she did an incredible job and made me feel absolutely beautiful all-wedding day long.

Marti does amazing work. Due to an unexpected turn of events, my bridesmaids and I were late getting back to the hotel so that Marti could start to work her magic. Marti was patient and not a bit rattled due to a shorten timeline. All I can say is WOW, we looked beautiful. Through the ceremony, some tears and a whole lot of dancing, our make-up at the end of the night still looked flawless. Thank you Marti for making us all look GORGEOUS.

Heather from Tica Cosmetics did my makeup for my wedding and I could not have been happier with her. My makeup was exactly what I wanted -- natural and a more enhanced version of my everyday look. I looked like myself, only better. My makeup stayed in place all night -- I looked exactly the same at 1 am as I did when she first applied it! She also did the makeup for my bridesmaids and my mom and they were all thrilled as well. I could not recommend her more.

I used Marti for my wedding, and she was fantastic. A few months prior to the wedding, we went to her studio and did a run through of makeup. The day of the wedding, she was prompt, fun to work with, fast, and did all of our makeup beautifully. It also stayed on late into the night (and into the after party!). Highly recommended!

They were on time and set up quickly. Everyone looked amazing, and I can't wait to see it again in our pictures. I would DEFINITELY recommend Tica for any event, or even just for their great product. Marti also provides helpful tips for you to apply your own makeup. So much fun to work with -- thank you Marti!!!

My original Make Up artist fell through and I panicked! I called Tica about a month before my wedding, and was booked with Heather W that day which was a huge relief. Heather viewed my "wedding ideas" Pinterest page and was prepared with what I wanted the day of our trial, which made me feel very comfortable. Let me just say Heather was a joy to work with and our make up looked amazing! She was very responsive leading up to the wedding and was very professional on my wedding day. I highly recommend Tica, and specifically Heather!

She made me a prettier version of myself on my wedding day, which is exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Marti over and over again and also find myself buying and using her makeup line!

Marti was a smart and easy decision. After working with her my maid of honor decided to use her for her wedding as well! During trials she is very intent on delivering exactly what you want, and will ask you at each stage of the trial what you think of what she has done. Also, I changed the get ready location for myself three times, and Marti was accommodating to every single change, even though the last one was done by cell phone and when she was only 10 miles away from the wedding!! I would recommend everyone to use her as she is smart, funny, talented, and by the end of it she really becomes invested in her brides. She even did three people extra who decided to get it done the day of, and accomplished everything she needed to do in plenty of time! NOt only is Marti an extremely talented make-up artist, but she is also a very good person and delivers a better product at a more than fair price. in summary, GO WITH MARTI!!!

He calming nature put me at ease from the minute I met her. Marti was also one of the few vendors who I didn't need to reach out to in the days prior to the wedding as she contacted me to confirm everything. On top of all that, her makeup artistry is subtle, beautiful and makes a statement. She was patient with me and listened to my vision and then created it for me. I could not ask for a more perfect vendor!

Marti was fantastic. I'm an older bride who doesn't wear make-up and didn't want to look "made-up!" She made my wish come true. She was on time the day of, engaged my sister-in-law and best friend while doing my make-up which allowed me to stay calm and distracted. My guests thought I was absolutely beautiful and that's how I felt the entire day! I highly recommend Marti. She responded to my email promptly, she was relaxed and professional and mostly she heard me and acted accordingly. I plan to meet with her for a make-up lesson so I can be equally as beautiful when my stepson marries in December.

Marti does beautiful, flawless make-up artistry, and made me and my whole wedding party look lovely on the big day!
I love her work because she makes you look natural and yet polished- not looking too "done up" live at the wedding, and yet looking beautiful, smooth, and put together in the photos.
Marti worked on my whole bridal party and a few extras- she arrived early to set up, worked within our timeline, and made everyone feel comfortable and happy with the finished product. I loved it most because even later into the night when we had been dancing for hours, the pictures I have seen show that the makeup held up over the day.
I strongly reccomend her services for any event!!

Marti was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her services. She graciously agreed to do my wedding make-up at the last minute after I had been cancelled on by one person and another make-up artist had accidentally double-booked herself for the same date and couldn't make it.
I met with Marti for a make-up trial about a week before the wedding and found her to be very outgoing and easy to talk with so she immediately put me at ease. She understood the look I wanted and did an excellent job during both the trial run and on the wedding day. I got many compliments on how pretty and natural my make-up looked which is exactly what I wanted.
I ended up getting sick on the day of the wedding and Marti even offered to pick up medication for me on her way to the hotel which I really appreciated. Again, I would recommend her services without hesitation.

Believe all the hype about Marti on this site. The comments and many accolades I read on WeddingWire helped me decide to schedule an initial consultation with Marti. However, meeting this fantastic lady and seeing her stunning work firsthand was the clincher...The make-up was light and natural-looking; she made me look like fresh, vibrant version of ME. The make-up held up through the night, which I was really happy about. She also did make-up for the moms and maids, all of whom looked gorgeous.

Hiring Marti was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding process. Not only is she a true artist, but she has a beautiful personality and put me at ease during an otherwise tumultuous wedding morning. Not only did Marti arrive early, but she even stayed long after she had to and provided touch-ups and warm wishes until she saw me and my bridemaids off in the limo. I highly recommend Marti for make-up services for your wedding. Schedule an initial consultation and you'll see exatly what I mean! Thanks again Marti :)

Marti is a calming presence on what can be an emotional and hectic day. Her make-up feels so light on your skin, and it lasts all day (which is quite a feat, considering the bridal party gets made up early for photos). She is great with color and makes you look like the best version of yourself - never fake or "too done." Marti is reasonable, punctual and really easy to talk to - a pleasure to work with.

Marti was one of my favorite vendors. She is just one of the nicest, most personable people I have ever met. She was so much fun to have in the suite with us as we were getting ready. Marti is also a consummate professional. She arrives early to appointments, manages her time well so she can be entirely focused on the person she is working on and is usually able to squeeze prople in who decide at the last minute want to be done up. As for my make-up it was flawless, perfect with my skin tone and dress, looked very natural but also good in pictures and stayed on all day. I misplaced my wedding day lipstick (Bridal Rose from Marti's own line of cosmetics that I would recommend to any bride) and Marti graciously gave me her sample tube to take with me. As for value, when it comes to trial, day off make-up and travel (which I do not believe Marti charges for) you will not find a better deal. All the other vendors I researched charged at least $100 for travel, not Marti. At the end of the day I would highly recommend Marti. In addition to being a fantastic vendor I call Marti a friend.

Marti was great. I had 3 previous make-up consultations, each one making me look like i had stage make-up on. I stressed to Marti that I wanted a natural look, and she did wonders. She was careful to make sure that I was comfortable with everything that she was doing. In fact, she listened so well that i had to tell her to put more make-up on. This was perfect for me because i felt that i had complete control over the process. Lastly, my fiance hates it when i put on too much make-up and so when he told me that my make-up was perfect, i knew marti had done a spectacular job.

Marti did my sister�s and my makeup at both of our weddings. I had makeup trials with 4 different makeup artists before contracting with Marti. The other women covered my eyes with dark charcoals and grays for dramatic effect and never listened to my desire to have more subtle colors. Marti took the time to find out wanted and was able to capture the colors and effect I envisioned for my wedding day. Additionally, she was a pleasure to work with. I will undoubtedly return to Marti any time I need makeup done in the future.

The make up for each person was complimentary and beautiful. No one looked over done. Guests (and parents) particularly commented on how well she did on the young girls - she made them up without making them look made up!! My makeup was perfect. Marti has a great personality and was a welcome addition to our getting ready "party." She listens to what her subject wants and carrys out a vision she agrees upon with the bride! Everyone looked so beautiful!

Marti did an amazing job on my makeup on my wedding day. She was the second makeup artist I had a trial with and she did a great job. She talked with me about what kind of look I was going for and she did exactly what I wanted. During the trial I told her I wanted my eyes to pop and she let me look at my eye makeup and see if it was enough or if I wanted more. She was so nice!
On wedding day she came to my hotel to do my makeup and was about 30 minutes early and came with everything she needed. She was very professional and got along with everyone including my photographer. I highly recommend Marti if your looking for lightweight makeup that will make you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day!

I located Marti originally from the Knot. I then spent a good deal of time searching for her information online, for reviews given by other customers. I was struck by the fact that, on multiple wedding websites, she received several reviews, all of which were overwhelmingly positive. I felt pretty strongly that, for the amount of money you invest in a photographer you should be camera-ready that day, so investing in a makeup artist was important to me and I just wanted to find the right person for the job. My goal was to look beautiful and polished, but not airbrushed. When I contacted Marti, she made it clear from the start (and pictures of other brides showed this too) that she is not heavy-handed. She also has a very impressive resume and has made a career of helping women to look beautiful. We met for a trial sometime in the spring of 2009, and despite the fact that I had completely lost my voice and couldn't talk above a whisper, I had a very enjoyable time with Marti. She made me feel comfortable, and she put up with my lack of a voice with grace and humor. I was extremely pleased with the level of coverage she provided, and her explanation of the different steps involved--preparing your skin, matting the skin, and applying the foundation. She was so flexible, and told me that we could do more or less coverage, just to let her know. I wasn't sure what type of look I wanted, so during the trial she picked some colors for us to try on the eyes. She explained what colors are complimentary to certain eye colors and skin tones, and helped me to develop a look that was right for me. On the wedding day, Marti showed up a few minutes early, was bright and relaxed, and took her time with me. She did such a beautiful job. I received countless compliments throughout the day on how beautiful I looked, and I am so grateful. It makes me so happy to know that my wedding pictures will capture me looking truly elegant and lovely and I thank Marti in no small part for that. Perhaps the most amazing part is that, despite the August heat and humidity of Virginia, and a long and hectic day of driving, the wedding, more driving (on Rte. 95 traffic), and a reception that lasted until after 11 p.m., the makeup held up--the only "touch ups" that I needed were to use the oil blotting sheets (that Marti recommended), and one touch up of the lipstick that we bought from her. It was a great day, and I thank Marti kindly for her wonderful assistance in the day.

A month before my wedding I made the decision to have my makeup professionally applied. Tica Beauty was referred to me by co-workers. She responded and fit me in quickly. She kept in contact with me and on the day of my wedding she arrived nice and early to accommodate makeup for my 2 attendants; while keeping my makeup the priority. She kept me relaxed as my moment approached. I had wonderful compliments on my makeup.

Marti is an amazing person and make up artist! She not only is very talented in what she does (finding the perfect shade of foundation and complimentary colors to accent cheeks and eyes), she is also a wonderful caring person.

From the trial to the ¨big day¨ she makes you feel so important and special and allows you to feel comfortable with your decisions. (For example, even though the color of blue eyeshadow brought out my blue eyes, she could tell that I was just a little timid about it and she made the brown, more of my comfort zone, look just as glamorous!)

On a more personal note, she was very comforting to me when I was worried about arriving late to the ceremony. I had a friend do my hair and he is very talented but it took much longer than expected. She only had about 10 minutes to apply and she was able to do a beautiful job without appearing rushed and was calming me the whole time. In that 10 minutes, I feel like the make up looked like it took hours upon hours- just glamorous! She even helped with my veil!!

Marti is the BEST person for wedding make up and I would recommend her to EVERYONE!!

I am so happy to have found Tica and now after seeing the prof. pictures for the first time know without any doubt that Marti is a "True" professional who knows just what she's doing!

I cannot say enough good things about Marti Wright! I called her less than two weeks before my wedding day and not only was she available; she came out to my house to do the make-up trial. She was extremely friendly and kind and she kept trying looks on me until I found the one I liked. Then on the day of my wedding she arrived early like she said she would and she got right to work. We had a very fun experience getting ready in my bridal suite and Marti was lively and joking and laughing right along with us like we had known each other forever. She was the absolute right person to have done our make-up on my wedding day because she made everyone laugh and also feel calm and relaxed at the same time. Marti did my sister, my mother, and my own make-up and it all came out beautifully. She never met my mother or my sister before that day but she gave them looks that enhanced their beauty and was not in the least over done for my Sunday afternoon wedding. She also helped the Best woman with her make-up even though I had not paid for it and she did not charge me extra for it - just purely out of kindness and generosity. The make-up lasted for the entire day - I didn't even need to do retouching! I just can't thank Marti enough for the wonderful job she did. She is professional, responsive, and flexible and her prices are very reasonable. I would whole heartedly recommend Marti to anyone wishing to have their make-up done.

Marti Wright is awesome. She did my wedding day makeup and I felt great. Marti is extremely creative and knowledgeable and was a wonderful, calm person to have around on my wedding day. Her makeup line is very high quality and everything she did photographed well. I don't usually wear much makeup, so I trusted her and she came through big time. I highly highly recommend Marti and her makeup line and can't say enough wonderful things about her.

Marti's prices are also extremely affordable compared to other wedding-day makeup artists in the area. Definitely get in touch with her for a trial!

In addition to being pleasant, prompt, and organized, Marti is an exceptional make-up artist who makes you feel and look your best. My mother, sister and I couldn't have been happier with her work. My husband also loved the look she created for me!

I urge you to seriously consider Marti for your wedding makeup. Marti was a pleasure to work with. She did makeup for my mother and I for my wedding day, and she also did a trial for both of us before that. Our makeup lasted throughout 12 hours of wedding festivities, and although I haven't received the professional photographers yet, it looks wonderful in our friends' shots.
The very best thing about Marti, which is why I chose her and why you should absolutely consider her, is that she is pleasant, calming, and fun. After my hair was done and my veil was in, I sat in Marti's hi-top chair in a hotel suite. My bridesmaids and my mother fluttered about the room, doing makeup and eating and talking and dancing and singing. The photographer arrived. My stomach was in knots with anticipation. I am 100% confident that the only reason I remained (fairly) calm that morning was that Marti and I just chatted like it was any other day. She's someone you could have coffee with for hours and not realize any time had gone by. Her work was inspired and flawless; her personality can't be beat. She was a joy to work with and actually made my wedding morning better than it would have been without her lovely presence.

I really enjoyed working with Marti Wright of Tica. She was easy to book with, and had recommendations for other vendors that I was still looking to secure. My trial run was in her lovely home, although now I understand she's taken up residency in a shop. She's wonderfully chatty and easy to talk to. She asked pointed questions that allowed her to assess just what I had in mind for my wedding makeup. Her first run was perfect although she did allow me to try some other lip colors (her first instinct was the right one, however--why did I ever doubt it??).

Marti was originally scheduled to come at 11:30 just to do my makeup (bridal), but had no problems coming at 11 to add on my stepmom. She even put some lip gloss and blush on my little sister (and kept my 6 yo sister occupied "cleaning brushes").

In sum, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about her, and everything positive to say. I highly recommend booking her for your next event. She even does girls' birthday parties where she teaches makeup application.

I absolutely LOVED Marti Wright at Tica Beauty. Her work was excellent, she was professional in every way, and yet the best part to me as a bride was that she was more than a makeup artist. My parents disowned me before my wedding so I did not have a mother with me in the bridal chamber. Marti struck a nice balance of being genuinely excited, and yet a calming influence on a hectic day. It was a blessing to have met Marti and I could not recommend her (or her services!!) enough.

Marti is just wonderful! She made the process so easy - and fun! She worked with what I wanted, looked good in, and what would last for the entire day! I loved how she did my make up! I had two bridesmaids and my mother all have their make up done by her as well and they were all very happy with the outcome!

I would hightly recommend Tica Beauty! Marti is very experienced and very flexiable and understanding of a Bride's crazy schedule!

Quality of Service was exceptional, Marti gets 5 stars. I would highly recommend her to others. She made me look beautiful along with my Mom as well.
Responsiveness: She arrived early and responded to my email quickly several months before my wedding - 5 stars on this as well.
Professionalism: 5 stars - She was very professional and a great attitude.
Value for Cost: 5 Stars - Vendor was well worth the cost.
Flexibility: 5 Stars - She was very flexible in what ever I needed and she came to the hotel to apply my makeup before the event.

Marti makes you feel very comfortable and asks lots of questions regarding how you apply your own make up. She gives you great tips as well.

Marti was wonderful to work with, she did an amazing job with my make up as well for my four bridesmaids. Everyone was happy with their look and everyone's make up looked fantastic in pictures as well as in person. Marti was very easy to work with and was very willing to make sure I was comfortable with my look and listened to what I wanted.

Marti was wonderful in helping me to pick out the colors that best suited my skin and my wedding theme. She was very attentive and catered to what I wanted. It was also wonderful that she was able to come to the venue and do my make-up and my Mom's. We both felt all the more special because of the care that Marti took to make my day as stress-free as possible. Her upbeat personality helped put the jitters at bay as well! She is wonderful and I highly recommend her.

Marti from Tica Cosmetics did mine, my mother's, my mother in law's, and my bridesmaids' makeup on the day of our wedding. She is extremely talented and very knowledgeable on palettes and color complement and made everyone look as if they were glowing. A year prior I had my demo with her in Vienna, VA where we laid out specifically what sort of look I was looking for as well as discussed any skin issues (combination skin, an occasional breakout) that she may need to deal with-- even providing me with a tube of the mascara she used. Overall she was very pleasant to work with and very affordable considering the number of people she worked on. I've already suggested her to another couple who were recently engaged.

I adore Marti. Her trials take place in Vienna, at her studio. She likes to book trials ASAP so that you can see how she works. She travels to your location on the day of. She has a wonderful personality and really knows what she's doing. Marti was open to my worries and concerns. She is extremely talented and everyone loved their makeup on my wedding day. All day/evening everyone talked about the great work she did. She's a sweetheart and you won't find anyone better than her.

Marti was extremely flexible, and willing to meet wherever it was convenient for me on the wedding day. She was professional and patient when dealing with my quirks (I get jittery when brushes and pencils are close to my eyes) and she made the entire makeup experience very pleasant. She did a fantastic job, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Marti is awesome! She is extremely responsive with both phone and email. She truly is an artist when it comes to makeup. During my trial she made me feel so comfortable and really encouraged me to be honest with her about what I envisioned myself looking like on my wedding day. She asked me to tell her when to put more makeup on and/or take some off. During my trial she wrote everything down that we had used so that she could recreate the look perfectly on the day of. Marti also frequently reminded me that it was my day and that I needed to feel beautiful. On my wedding day Marti showed up on time, was very personable, and professional with me and my bridal party. She took her time with everyone and everyone looked truly beautiful. I'd recommend using her service if you are looking for someone who is genuine and very talented!

Marti did a great job with my bridal party's makeup. My trial with her went very well, and she was great with suggesting outside products to bring on the wedding day (my own waterproof mascara, shades of lipstick). Leading up to the wedding, she was happy to answer questions about facials/waxing and additional services such as fake eyelashes. On my wedding day, she arrived early to set up and did makeup for 5 bridesmaids, my mother, and myself. I was very happy with my makeup, and she left me some powder to apply for touch-ups the rest of the night. Overall my makeup lasted all night, though I did get shiny near the end of the night. Some of my bridesmaids got fake eyelashes done, and they felt that they would have liked more eyelashes put on, but other than that they were happy about how their makeup looked as well. I would highly recommend Tica Beauty & Cosmetics. Marti is reliable, talented, has great energy, and she will make any bride look and feel her best on her wedding day.

I would recommend Tica's services. I had a bridal make-up done by one of the make-up artists (Heather) and was not disappointed! Heather got to the hotel where I was getting ready early and helped me not only with the make-up but with anything else that I needed. She helped me to remain calm and relaxed on my bid day, which I really appreciate!
The make up turned out great. I would strongly recommend Heather and Tica services to all the brides-to-be!
Thank you

Marti did a fabulous job. The makeup was elegant and classy. I am a woman who wears very little makeup everyday and was worried that it would not be "me" with all th makeup on. I was wrong! Her application was very natural and classy. I would highly recommend Marti to do your makeup. She is a great makeup artist and a wonderful woman to talk to!

Marti and her team did the makeup for my wedding (seven bridesmaids, mothers, grandmothers, aunts) and did an incredible job! She completely exceeded my expectations, truly bringing out each girls' natural beauty through her technique. She was a pleasure to spend the day with and was very much a calming source to me (the bride) on my wedding day. I recommend Marti and Tica Cosmetics with the highest regard and can't wait to hire her for my next special occasion!
