    Wedding day with Tica Beauty

    I had an amazing experience with Tica Beauty for my wedding hair and makeup! After deciding a bit on the later side (about one month before my wedding) that I wanted to have my hair and makeup done professional, I reached out to Marti. She was SO kind, responsive, and helpful with every step of the process. I was able to get a trial in quickly with Alisa whom I had a great experience working with. I don't typically wear a lot of makeup but Alisa did a great job both on my trial and wedding day to get me a natural yet bridal look. She asks for your input every step of the way, but was I was also happy to just have her use her expertise when I didn't have a strong opinion. In the end I had a gorgeous updo and makeup that lasted ALL day in an outdoors summer wedding and could not be happier. My mom also had her makeup done by Alisa and had a GREAT experience and loved her look. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Marti and her team!!

    Beautiful makeup and so easy to work with!

    Working with Tica could not have been a better experience. The team was great about being responsive and flexible while I worked out the trial details and the morning of details. My makeup artist, Rita, was amazing. She did an array of styles for myself, my mom, and my bridesmaids. She created beautiful looks from subtle and natural to bold and glam and everything in between. If you are looking for a great makeup team in the Northern Virginia area, I would absolutely recommend Tica!

    Marcia is Amazing!

    Marcia is efficient, cheerful and helped kept us to our time schedule. In the beginning as someone who wears no makeup she was extremely helpful in guiding me into the stunning look I ended up in. She also did the mother of the brides and bridesmaids for my fall farm wedding. Would highly recommend her!

    Excellent make-up products and very talented make-up artists. Their price for a bridal party is very reasonable and they are very accommodating and responsive when scheduling trials, etc. The artists are good at listening to your needs and careful not to over-do the make-up, which I appreciated greatly.

    Marti at Tica was fantastic to work with for my daughter's wedding. She and an assistant took care of me, the bride, and all the bridesmaids. Everyone was happy with their look and Marti was careful to listen to what each person was looking for. She is just terrific.

    My sister found Marti almost ten years ago when she got married and when I got engaged, I knew exactly who to call for my wedding makeup! Marti is so easy and nice to work with - I always get nervous when getting professional makeup done because I worry that I won't look like myself. She totally understood that concern and my wedding day makeup looked perfect! Thank you, Marti!!

    Tica Beauty was recommended to me by a friend of mine who's best friend had used their services for her wedding. Her pictures were beautiful and I decided to book their services as well. I had a wonderful experience with them from the trial all the way through the day of my wedding! Marti was so easy to talk with and always so responsive. Our wonderful artist, Miranda, was fun, personable, professional, and did a fantastic job on the brides, bridesmaids, and MOB/MOG. She arrived to the hotel on time (early even!) and was ready to rock. I am thankful I decided to go with Tica Beauty and I would definitely recommend them!

    Marti was a dream to work with. I am not much of a "make up" person, but wanted to be beautiful for my wedding. Marti listened to what I wanted and created a beautifully natural look for me. I felt cared for and gorgeous! Thank you Marti and Tica!

    Karina did the most amazing job on my makeup for my wedding on 6 January 2018. I felt and looked just like a bride should look on her wedding day. I felt the most beautiful that I have ever felt in my life. I am so grateful to have had this vendor to make my day so special and so perfect. Karina and Marti where so responsive and had the best energy ever. Karina was so attuned to my needs as a bride and listened to everything!!! I more than highly recommend this vendor!!!

    We loved Marcia! My trial was great with her, she was so helpful and really put me at ease. I'm a natural, minimal makeup kind of girl and was really afraid to wear a ton of makeup, but she provided me with a balance of natural and event-appropriate for pictures. Marcia was on time on the day of and all set up before we even got there. She was very pleasant and chatted with everyone while doing their makeup...she may be my mom's new best friend! The makeup looked outstanding. So happy we chose TICA Beauty! Marti was also super helpful throughout the planning phase, thanks Marti!

    I just had my annual work Gala in DC and had my makeup done by Marti. I don't usually wear the color red or feel comfortable doing my make-up (especially the eyes) for evening events. Marti made my eyes pop, selected the right color pairing for my gown and all I needed to do was throw on my dress and get ready for pictures which came out stunning.

    Heather was just amazing for my wedding! What a wonderful time we had enjoying getting ready! Not only is she amazing at the makeup she does, but she is also fun to be around, and caring of those she is working with. She made sure my Bridesmaid with eye issues felt comfortable and took her time working with her! My makeup also stayed on all day long dispite the hot temperatures and rain during the day! She is a true professional and I would recommend anyone to work with her!

    Marti is so delightful! She did the makeup for my daughter's senior pictures. Marti did an excellent job of understanding how much makeup my daughter was comfortable wearing and then tailored that to a beautiful look that would photograph well. We both loved the result. I would highly recommend Tica for anyone who wants makeup done for that special occasion.

    Heather was my main point of contact for my wedding day. She was the lead artist and Marcia assisted. Both of these ladies were absolutely wonderful. They were on time, came in to the hotel, took charge, arranged themselves in a way that best suited their needs, stayed on schedule and they made everyone look AMAZING. The make-up was so lovely and every girl looked their best and everyone felt comfortable. Sometimes make-up can be overdone and this was not the case. They listened to each girl and did custom make-up for everyone. My bridal make-up was perfect, lasted the whole day and the pictures are stunning. Leading up to the wedding Heather was communicating with me regularly making sure everything was in order. She was quick to respond, easy to coordinate with and very organized. Thank you Heather for my wonderful make-up and for making everything run so smoothly. I would highly recommend Tica Beauty!!!

    Are you kidding me? Marti has a wand! I am an older women with the mind set natural is beautiful. (Well maybe in years gone by. ) So I made an appointment with Tica Beauty to shed some light on this face of mine. Incredibly I was shown how less is more! I am wearing makeup now (never did!) and feel very natural .......and pretty! My face has a glow that hasn't been there for a looooong time. I love Tica Beauty makeup and Marti's guidance.

    I adore Marti and the Tica products, and felt beautiful on my wedding day. What a relief it was to find Tica, which aligned perfectly with my vision; I wanted my look to be light, fresh, and special for the day....but still me. I didn't feel as though I was wearing more makeup than usual; the Tica products felt airy. Marti listened to and executed my vision for the day. My mom (who is very picky about beauty products) was also very pleased the results of her mother-of-the-bride session. Not only is Marti talented, receptive, prompt, and affordable, she is fun and was a delight to have around before our wedding. Most of all, I developed a great trust of Marti and her craft, which made all the difference on our wedding day--makeup was something I didn't worry about at all!

    I found Marti after a last minute referral. I wasn't planning on having my wedding makeup done but changed my mind a few weeks before the wedding. I'm so glad I did! It was so worth it! Not only did I feel and look amazing, but it made my bridesmaids feel very special for the wedding as well! Marti was so great at understanding what I wanted and I have never felt as beautiful as I did for my wedding!

    Marti and Marcia were life savers!!! My original make up artist pulled out last minute and by a miracle they still had an opening. I never really wear make up so my now husband and I wanted to make sure I looked beautiful but still like myself. During my make up trial Marcia took the time to listen to me carefully and really understand what I wanted. She also was very nice and made me feel comfortable. The day of she showed up on time and worked tirelessly to do 7 peoples make up on our tight time line. Everyone was ecstatic with the final results! I would definitely use Tica Beauty again and recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
