Hello! I am Carolyn Thombs a professional makeup artist living in the Northern Virginia area, but I am willing to travel depending on your needs. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you to see if I am the right choice as your artist for your special day! Now here is a little bit about how I approach the art of makeup.
I am not just a Professional Makeup Artist, I approach each client and face as a piece of artwork. Each client's face is differnt and has different needs, therefore each piece is an original translating your inner beauty to the surface for everyone to see. Each client is provided with an indepth consultation ensuring that services provided to them are tailored specifically for their needs and desires. I only use high quality products and am also flexibile as to each client's sensitivities.
I do weddings, commercial and editorial photo shoots as well as hands on consulting in the Virginia, DC, Maryland, New York, Charlottesville and Philadelphia areas and am willing to travel outside of these areas as well.
If you every have any questions about my style, past work or what my favorite lipstick is please feel free to ask!

Carolyn did a fabulous job!!
I was married on 7/20/2019 at Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards right outside of Charlottesville, VA. Carolyn did a fantastic job with hair and makeup for me, my three bridesmaids, two junior bridesmaids, and my mom and grandmother. She was super professional and flexible with changes to our timeline. It was also the hottest day of the year and my makeup withstood the heat amazingly! She really did a beautiful job! I got so many compliments and the photos turned out to be lovely. I highly recommend Carolyn for your wedding (or any special occasion!) She’s a pleasure to work with :)Sent on 08/28/2019

Simply the best!
Carolyn is an absolutely amazing person and will make you look and feel the best ever on your wedding day. One thing I didn't realize about your wedding day is how much time you spend with your hair and makeup artist (especially if you have a lot of bridesmaids!). Carolyn gets to know you and your style so she can get your hair and makeup just right. We were just married in June, and already 2 of my bridesmaids have asked for her contact info so they can use her for their own/friends weddings. To quote my husband, "I don't think I've ever seen you look more radiant", and I couldn't have been happier! Carolyn, I can't say thank you enough for making my day extra special.Sent on 08/26/2019

Everything a bride needs & more
Carolyn could not be more perfect--she really is everything a bride could ever want. She is professional and full of wisdom & vision, while also energetic and so fun. I rarely wear makeup and usually go for a more ~natural~ look, even for special events, so I was definitely hesitant about my wedding day. I was nervous that I was going to feel caked and not like myself. But let me tell you--CAROLYN DELIVERED. Thanks to her hair and makeup expertise, she was able to enhance my natural look and make me feel confident and gorgeous. She took my ideas and ran with them, and did the same for my bridesmaids and mom. We are all obsessed and couldn't not give higher praise. Carolyn is a total rockstar and I am so grateful she was a part of my day.Sent on 08/03/2019
