Kimberly G. Brown was introduced to the makeup industry in the turn of the century. She was once told “If you love what you do, consider yourself a success.” That stuck with her forever, so much that she lives by the quote in everything she does. After working in six different companies in retail management. She wanted to feel that fire burning inside again. One day in the cold winter months she was getting ready for work. As she looked in the mirror, she thought what is my purpose, what is my passion?

Kim began putting on her lip-gloss…. She stopped mid lip and said that’s it! “ I am passionate about something I have done everyday since the age of 13…putting on makeup.” Desiring more, she attended Inner Beauty Academy where she received her professional certification in the art of makeup. There she trained under one of Virginia’s foremost artists, who is know for her work within MAC, Lancôme, Estee Lauder, People Magazine, and fashion shows from west to east coast. Working hand in hand with her she learned cutting edge techniques. While focusing on airbrush technology, body art, glamour, fantasy, period makeup, black and white verses color photography, and bridal makeup.

Kimberly came to our rescue just a few days before the wedding. She did an amazing job on my makeup(mother of the bride) and my daughters. (bride) I was pretty stressed that day and after she was finished I was so relaxed. I recommend her to any mother of the bride. I received several comments on how I looked that evening. Some folks even thought I looked 5 years younger! Wow!!! Great stuff. My daughter has trouble with oily skin and was concerned about her face becoming shiny as the evening went on. That wasn't the case at all. Her makeup looked flawless all evening. Thanks again Kimberly we appreciated your help!

Kimberly did a wonderful job on my makeup for my bridal portraits and for the wedding and my bridal party's makeup. Both times the makeup looked beautiful and stayed the whole day. She picked just the right colors for me and applied it just the way I wanted. Around the wedding time I was very tired and wasn't getting a lot of sleep because life and work was crazy but she applied the makeup in a way that helped me shine and not look tired not all. I was very impressed and happy I chose Kimberly to do my makeup. I would definitely recommend her to any future bride looking for someone to do their makeup for their wedding.

I have cosmetic retail and application experience myself. So when it comes to someone else doing my makeup for me, I can be very critical. But Kim made me feel more beautiful then I ever have without overdoing it and listening to the overall look I wanted to achieve. It made the day of my wedding so much more relaxing to know I was in good hands and didn't have to stress about doing it myself.

I am so happy that I chose Ministry of Makeup to do my makeup for my wedding! Kimberly Brown is fun to work with and is very skilled and passionate about what she does. She did an amazing job on my makeup, my mom's, and sister's. We all looked and felt beautiful and the pictures turned out great. After attending a friend's wedding where Kimberly had done their makeup and seeing how gorgeous they looked, it was an easy choice for me to have her do mine.

I enjoyed working with Kimberly from beginning to end of my wedding process. She was there to help me with my engagment pictures and also on my wedding day. She is amazing to work with she knows whats best for your skin and what will look amazing but also gives us brides the freedom to express who we are and how we want to look on our wedding day. Shes highly professional but keeps the time shes with you fun. I have enjoyed her and will be using her for various occassions I am taking part in.

Kimberly Brown was very nice and helpful. I called and asked for her services with a 6 day notice. She was very accommodating. I am not the kind of person to chit chat with someone I don't know, but Kimberly was very easy to talk to. I happened to get a spray tan the day before the wedding and it was way too dark. Kimberly made my makeup look amazing, and she fixed the mess ups from the spray tan on my chest. Everyone complemented me on my makeup. She took the time to ask what my everyday look is, and she made me look great while keeping the natural look. At first it felt like she was layering on the makeup, however when you use great makeup it felt like I was wearing nothing. I will recommend her to everyone! I was on a tight budget so felt the price was a little high but at the last minute I had no choice. I am glad that I chose her. She and her associate did the makeup for the bridal party and for the moms and grandmother. All were wonderful.

Kimberly was awesome!!! She did my makeup for my engagements, bridals, AND the wedding day! She helped me out last minute with my engagements and my bridals and she did amazing!!! At first I was worried because the makeup was soo thick for both of those sessions BUT both were outside in 100+ degree weather and it all stayed on and the pictures looked amazing and my makeup was flawless!! She knows how to do makeup for photography, not just for everyday wear!! I will not ever have anyone else do my makeup for any other event I have!! I got sooo many compliments on my wedding day on how awesome my makeup looked and I couldn't be happier!! :)
