My Story:

I am a freelance makeup artist who loves to see people smile when they look in the mirror after a makeover. I have always loved makeup and work hard to bring out the beauty in all of my clients!  When I was young I would apply makeup to anyone who would let me and over the years, I have worked with all styles and skin tones.  I worked for MAC Cosmetics for over 3 years and completed an apprenticeship before starting to freelance for myself.  I am well versed in many styles of makeup, but do not air brush.  I really enjoy doing bridal makeup and special events.  Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life and I love to make the bride and her bridesmaids look and feel their very best!

Reviews (6):

"Brigid is extremely professional. Before the actual event, she responds promptly to e-mails and phone call. During the actual event, she shows up on time and is ready to go. She is gentle when putting on makeup which I always think is a huge plus, and she uses high quality brands like MAC. Whether booking her for a wedding or a photo shoot, she is good at understanding the concept and making you pretty!" - Cora, Client

"Brigid is one of the most talented make up artists I have ever come across.  She has done my make up for a variety of things from black tie events and photo shoots and I am never disappointed.  She is always prompt,  friendly and  professional with an extraordinary ability to take my abstract concepts and turn me into a flawless beauty!  I recommend her to anyone who wants to look phenomenal at their special event! You'll be in the best hands you can find!" - Christina, Client

"Brigid did my makeup for my wedding (In Fairfax, VA) and I am so glad I used her on my special day!  We met a few weeks before hand and did a trial run.  She is so nice and easy to get along with!  On my wedding day she arrived promptly on time.  She did my makeup, along with my made of honor, 2 bridesmaids and my mother.  That is a lot of work for one person, but she made it look easy!  My girls and my mom all looked phenomenal!  (My dad LOVED my mom's makeup!)   She was professional and friendly all at the same time.  Having her in charge of my face for the day really helped to keep me calm, and I was confidant that I was going to look great.  My makeup looked awesome in person AND in all of my pictures.  My husband absolutely loved it too!  She turned me into the most beautiful version of myself.  I would without a doubt recommend Brigid for any bride out there! " - Bettiann, Client

"I've had the fortunate opportunity to work with Brigid for over a year. She served as my make up artist on two separate photo shoots and did an incredible job on both of them.  What makes Brigid uinique relative to other make up artist is her broad range of creative expertise.  Brigid can provide a natural, sophisticated, and fresh look for a professional headshot or a unique and creative look for a artistic photo shoot.  Her training as a make up artist is evident as you work with her.  Brigid is a true professional to work with. Not only is she a talented make up artist, she is fun to work with! I will definately hire her again for future photo shoots." - Liz, Client

"Brigid is amazing! She has "done" my face on several occasions, from a beauty makeover to extreme Halloween characters. Great talent, very professional, a delight to work with! Thanks Brigid!!!" - Jolanda, Client

"Brigid is a true professional. She's had years of experience and used to work at MAC so she really knows what she's doing. I can guarantee that you will LOVE the way you look after a makeover by Bridget. If you don't believe me, see for yourself." - Allison, Client
