I am a professional makeup artist working in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC areas. I grew up in Springfield, Virginia and have lived in NOVA my entire life. When I’m not doing makeup, I’m spending time with my husband and 3 beautiful children!
Makeup has always been a part of my life. Even at a young age I remember doing make up on my dolls. When I started out, I would practice on anyone who would let me, from my mother and sister, to friends and neighbors. In my early 20’s,I apprenticed with a woman who was doing television makeup and special events. From there, I went on to work at MAC Cosmetics for over 3 years, completing extensive training and gaining valuable experience. I enjoyed my time in the retail space, but decided that I wanted to focus more on the art of makeup, so I decided to freelance on my own.
Since starting my company, ‘Beauty by Brigid,’ I have done makeup work for television, including HGTV, photo shoots, and music videos for Kanye West backup singers, but I enjoy weddings the most! I never turn down the chance to do makeup. I always take the time to listen to what the client’s vision is and will do anything possible to make that happen. I’m comfortable working with a wide range of clients, from women who never wear makeup to beauty pageant contestants! No matter who I’m working with, my goal is always the same: to make my clients look and feel their absolute best! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, I look forward to working with you!
