Kim and Jennifer were great and did an amazing job with my makeup and hair for my wedding. I showed Kim a picture of the make up style I wanted and she made it happen. It was exactly how I pictured it. As for the hair, Jennifer did a great job as well. She curl my hair and it was beautiful. Both Kim and Jennifer were professional and did a wonderful job and would definitely recommend.Sent on 07/30/2019

I am very thankful to have a met an awesome MUA. Kim has been doing my makeup for a very long time. I've ventured with other MUA's but none have compared to the work that Kim has done. The work that she has done, has been impeccable. I have used her for every occasion you can possibly imagine. I've had her do my makeup for events such as weddings (forever bridesmaid here), dinners, costume parties (yes, she is very creative as well), and for just because events.Sent on 04/28/2016
I'm not a person to wear a lot of makeup, so for her to take the time and attention to what and how I like my makeup to be, it speaks volumes. My initial experience with her, made me know on the spot that I wanted her as my MUA. She's a sweet girl with an awesome personality. She made me feel comfortable and very relaxed, when I tell her what I would like.
Her level of professionalism is outstanding. She is great with communication and she's always on time for every event I've needed her for. I've received many compliments in regards to my makeup. I love feeling natural in my own skin and Kim has been able to deliver! My makeup has lasted a full day, including crying and being outside for a wedding. You can easily see that she places a lot of thought into her work. I can't wait for the day that she will do my makeup for my wedding. She's a beautiful and thoughtful person inside and out. PROMISE, she will make you feel beautiful, too! Thank you so much Kim!

Kim did my daughter and her wedding parties' makeup on September 9, 2017. I was lucky enough to have my makeup done also! I have to say, we all looked stunning, and are very pleased!Sent on 09/19/2017

Kim was already booked the day of my wedding, but gave me the option to use another artist from her team Jen. I loved Kim's portfolio enough to schedule a trial with Jen and I'm so glad I did! She did my hair exactly like I wanted and made my makeup look flawless but still natural, which was really important to me. When I first saw myself in the mirror I was blown away by how Jen made me look EXACTLY HOW I HAD PICTURED. During the trial Jen was so receptive to feedback and willing to try different things so I could be sure of exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. She let me try different lip colors until we found the perfect one and I was unsure if I wanted around my eyes darker or lighter so she tried both ways so I could make a decision. She replicated everything exactly how I wanted on the day of and she was so fun to work with! Two other ladies from the team Latoya and Destini also helped Jen with bridesmaids hair and makeup, everyone looked so beautiful and said they wished we could hire all three ladies on a daily basis.Sent on 09/05/2017

Jennifer · Married on 12/10/2016
Kim and her partner hair stylist were AMAZING!! Seriously, I planned a wedding in 2 weeks. She was available which was incredible to begin with, but in addition to that, I didn't have the luxury of time to do a "trial." I had to just take the risk and see what they could do for me. They both did an incredible job. I've never felt so beautiful :) Thanks!Sent on 12/14/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Thank you for sharing Jennifer! We were happy to be available to be a part of your special day and you looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! Xoxo
Brittany · Married on 10/29/2016
Having Kim and her team travel from VA beach to northern VA was one of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning. Every bridesmaid's hair and makeup were done to perfection and looked exactly the way we described and/or showed in pictures. My makeup was absolutely amazing and done exactly the way I wanted, making me feel beyond perfect on my wedding day. So much fun and incredibly talented!Sent on 12/19/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Thank you for sharing Brittany! We were happy to travel up north and get you and your girls all dolled up. We had a blast with you fun girls!! Thank you for choosing us for your special day, it was truly an honor.

How can you sum up the most talented, professional, accommodating, and kind beauty professional with the best communication? It's Kim and her team. I met Kim at the Hermitage vendor get-together and her energy and passion for what she does was evident from the moment I met her. Her excitement was contagious and she was nothing but professional from the first e-mail inquiry to the last getting ready picture on my wedding day. She answered my e-mails immediately throughout the entire planning process. Kim did my makeup, as well as the makeup for my maid of honor, mother, mother-in-law... and at the last minute, my sister-in-law. She was beyond accommodating. She arrived at my home for my makeup trials completely ready to go. She was prompt on my wedding day and has extraordinary time management skills. I also worked with Jen who did my hair, as well as the hair of my maid of honor, mother, and mother-in-law. Everyone was pleased with both of these ladies' talents. They are easily able to take pictures from Pinterest, etc. and apply them to what makes you look best. They both were beyond receptive to feedback and worked to make us feel stunning. Our photos came out amazing, thanks to their hard work. We all felt absolutely beautiful on the day of the wedding. My husband continues to compliment me on my hair and makeup as we look back through our photos. On top of their talent, you have their warm personalities. I couldn't have asked for anyone more perfect to join us on my wedding day and participate in the getting ready fun. You'll be beyond happy when you choose to work with Kim and her team. I feel so fortunate to be able to be writing such a fabulous review for such a wonderful team of professionals! Thank you, Kim!Sent on 09/25/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Elizabeth, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your experience! We feel so incredibly lucky to have a bride like you to work with. You are so lovely and it was an honor to be a part of your special day. xoxo
Susan · Married on 07/23/2016
I booked Kim as my makeup artist for my wedding (July 23) and I just knew I was in great hands. We did a trial run so that I could figure out the look I wanted, and I gave her a few pictures for inspiration. I highly recommend a trial run, because we tried a lighter look and then a smokier look and I was able to choose which look I wanted (I went with smokier). On the wedding day, she replicated it perfectly! I felt beautiful on my wedding day. I also had 8 bridesmaids and 2 mothers that had their makeup done (Kim had another makeup artist helping her), and everyone looked flawless! She is definitely a perfectionist, and is so down to Earth. Even if you are not used to wearing full coverage makeup, she makes you feel very comfortable. Kim, THANK YOU for everything! It was perfect!!!Sent on 08/28/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Thank you so much Susan! It was an honor to be a part of your special day and I'm happy you loved your makeup! Seeing everything altogether with your dress, shoes, hair and makeup brought tears to my eyes. You were a vision!!

I was fortunate enough to have Kim take care of myself and a few of my bridesmaids for my wedding day. I went through 2 other trials and both of which where disastrous and the MUA that we had planned on for the day of declined the task two day suu prior to the wedding. So I prepared myself to do my own makeup and the bridesmaid for the big day. My sister recommended Kim to me about 3 weeks prior to my wedding after hearing much of my worries and I am so glad she got in touch with me. Kim is amazing at her craft and her personality is so sweet that she can relax even the most anxious of brides. She welcomed the idea of using some products i provided where I knew worked well on my very oily skin. She even happily took care of a few of my bridemaid,literally last minute, to make sure everyone was taken care of and looked gorgeous for the big event. I would highly recommend hiring her for any event. Thank you Kim for taking such fabulous care of us!Sent on 04/13/2016

Anna · Married on 07/11/2015
I couldn't have been happier with my makeup for my wedding! I typically don't wear a lot of makeup and didn't really have a clue of what "style" I wanted other than I was leaning towards more natural, but less tired (ha!). Kim was extremely helpful in giving advice, making suggestions when I wanted them, and the makeup was SUPERB! The eyeshadow was perfect, perfectly blended and she chose the best shades for my skin tone and for the time of year (July). The lipstick (I normally HATE wearing anything on my lips) was a beautiful shade and I don't know what product she used, but it didn't bother me at all. Everything was perfect and I would HIGHLY recommend her (and have recommended her to all my friends)!Sent on 04/20/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Thank you so much for sharing your experience Anna! You made such a gorgeous bride and I felt honored to get you all dolled up for your wedding day. Your wedding was amazing- not a dry eye in the crowd! Good thing for waterproof mascara!!

You will love Kim! She did my make for my wedding. She was professional, punctual, funny and made not only me feel gorgeous but my mother and all my bridesmaids. Kim has an eye for color, and respectfully listens to any requests and works in a well-paced manner without making anyone feel rushed. She is talented in her craft and you can tell she loves what she does. I can't recommend Kim enough. If you need a makeup artist-Kim is your go to!Sent on 11/27/2018
Keithley · Married on 04/07/2012
I knew getting thrown into the planning process of a wedding, lining vendors up was pertinent on my already growing to-do list. Booking a MUA at the time was important to me, because I'd never been one to take the time to even apply or dabble in makeup. I was seriously a novice at it, and wanted someone to take the reigns on this dilemma.Sent on 04/10/2016
I'd always been into the "au naturale" look. So when I heard about Kim Nguyen through a friend, I decided to take the plunge and commit to a trial. I was nervous meeting her initially, because I was entrusting this person with one of the most important days of my life. When I met Kim, not only was she extremely kind and sweet, she took the time to listen to my ideas and what I wanted as far as too little or too much (as far as my wedding look). I was at ease discussing my ideas with her. She also asked me about any skin issues and if I had questions for her as we continued on with the trial. We agreed on a purple smokey-eye look during the trial, a neutral lip, and went with romantic/elegant visage to balance out the eyes.
The big day finally came, and Kim was not only punctual, but she worked effortlessly through all of the commotion and chaos going on in the bridal room that day. She took her time, but she also worked efficiently knowing that there was a schedule we were all trying to stick to. Kim did not disappoint once again, and her beautiful work was just as great (if not better), and did NOT go unnoticed. Simply put- she made me feel confident and beautiful on my special day. I can't thank her enough. I was thoroughly impressed with her, and I definitely recommend her to any bride-to-be looking for a trusted MUA who listens and cares about the client.

Kimmy did my make up for me and my bridesmaids beautifully on my wedding day. She listened well to my likes and dislikes during our makeup trial. I have combination type skin, didn't get much sleep the night before the wedding, and had a mild to moderate acne breakout. On the day of my wedding, she definitely had me looking flawless, bright, and awake. My make up didn't run and stayed on all day (about 11 hours).Sent on 05/18/2016
Hello Beautiful's reply:Thank you so much Melanie! It was a lot of fun glamming you and your girls up on your wedding day. You were all so sweet and made my job super easy!

Joyce · Married on 07/01/2017
Kim and Jen did an amazing job with my wedding hair and makeup! I absolutely loved my look for my wedding day. My mom, sister, and auntie loved their looks from them as well. They really made me feel beautiful for my special day, and what they did was exactly what I'd wanted from our original hair and makeup trial. They were both so friendly and easy to work with. They make you so comfortable sitting with them while they do their amazing work. They were also very flexible, adding my auntie to their list the morning of the wedding. They were more than happy to do it and were still able to finish everyone's hair and makeup on time. I was so happy with the final product and couldn't be more please with the two of them. They work so well together!Sent on 07/13/2017
Kristine · Married on 09/27/2014
Had a great experience with Kim, who was referred to me by a friend. She was very easy going and listen to everything I wanted for my bid day. We had several makeup trials for which she was always flexible, and easy to reach for rescheduling. All of my brudesmaudes and the two mins lived their makup. She even did two ladies that were not originally accounted for. Kim made the process very easy and enjoyable. I would recommend her if you want a professional makeup artist, who listens and cares about the wants and needs of her brides. Thanks again Kim, you rock!!Sent on 05/05/2016
