    Stunning Makeup-- Highly Recommend!

    I had a wonderful experience working with Lauren of Real Doll Makeup for my wedding! I told her I wanted makeup that looked natural/glowy, and she nailed it-- and did a beautiful job for our moms and my bridesmaids as well. I appreciated the touch-up kit she provided, but hardly needed anything besides lipstick reapplication-- the makeup lasted beautifully all day. She's a warm and calm presence on your wedding day, and lovely to work with. Would hire her again without doubt and highly recommend her to others!

    Timeless, Elegant Wedding Makeup

    Lauren was literally the first vendor I booked once I figured out my wedding date and location. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else to make me picture perfect for my big day and highly recommend her to any bride in the DMV! I've known Lauren for years and she was the makeup artist for all of my closest friends who got married in the area so I couldn't wait to have her do my bridal look when it was finally my turn to get hitched. Lauren is very professional and warm and she did an amazing job on my makeup as well as for my mom, MIL, and a few of my bridesmaids. She has perfected the art of elegant, timeless make up that plays up your natural beauty. Lauren did my makeup for my engagement party, bridal shower, wedding, as well as when I was a bridesmaid in my friends' weddings. For my big day, I had on the longest most dramatic lashes I've ever worn and yet Lauren was able to make my whole look so natural that I never felt overdone. I wish I could have Lauren do my makeup everyday but at least I can look back at my wedding photos and admire her flawless work :) My advice to all future brides is to hire Lauren immediately before she gets booked up!
