Kim is a dream come true!
Kim is an incredibly gifted makeup artist and a salt of the earth human being. She was warm and responsive from my very first inquiry email, and I knew when I met her for a trial back in December 2017 that her professionalism, skill, flexibility, and sense of humor would make her the one for me and my big crew (10 bridesmaids and 2 moms).Sent on 11/05/2018
On our wedding day in September 2018, Kim and her additional artist Sheree were all set up when we arrived at our venue (and Kim even brought cookies!). Kim and Sheree balanced efficiency and attention to detail flawlessly across all 13 of us, which is no easy feat! Kim personally made me feel so at ease as she referenced her photos and notes from my trial while also ensuring I loved the wedding day look at key junctures. The end result was perfect for me--a natural look that made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself. Kim also graciously stayed late to help with one of my bridesmaids with a heat and humidity-induced face meltdown...!
Kim is so easy to talk and laugh with, and she exudes a genuine warmth and care that cannot be learned. I honestly did not want to say goodbye as we all headed to the ceremony! I cannot recommend Kim enough and will absolutely be knocking down her door next time I'm in need of professional makeup in the DC area. Thank you for everything, Kim--we love you!

Amidst all the options a bride can have in choosing a makeup stylist, Kim is hands-down the best person to work with. My bridal party, my Mom, and my husband's Mom felt incredible beautiful in their own skin. I had a range of ethnicities in my wedding party along with a range of makeup personalities (heavy vs natural). Kim was able to work with each person to enhance their natural beauty and style. Each bridesmaid felt elegant and the mothers felt very comfortable and beautiful for photos. The trial is a must as it allows you and Kim to get to know each other. Kim is a lovely person who truly gets to know you and cares about your emotional well-being on your wedding day. She is a consummate professional, but also just kind and magnetically funny. My own wedding make up basically made me feel like a bride. If you're hesitating with your decision, I would strongly recommend Kim for your wedding day. She's a rare find.Sent on 03/23/2018

Kim Giammaria is such a talented makeup artist. She makes you look so natural looking and beautiful. She has a delightful personality and is fun to work with. On the day of the wedding, she pretty much did everything from makeup to fixing hair to providing support. Besides feeling beautiful, you enjoy your time with her. Kim made the day special.Sent on 11/06/2017
