I planned my wedding in about 4 weeks and was expected every possible vendor to be available on MY wedding date:) I worked with one make up artist with whom I was very pleased, however, she was already committed to an event out of town. She referred me to Dawn. Dawn sent me a few pictures. I was immediately impressed with how flawless, yet natural all of the women looked, alleviating one of my biggest fears that I would look too heavily made up. Dawn and I set up a make up trial, and not that this had anything to do with make up, but Dawn lugged all of her equipment up the three flights of stairs to get to my condo. So already, I was thinking "she's official". While giving Dawn a sense of the colors we were using, Dawn, my sister and I chatted like triple g's, "good, good, girlfriends". By the end of the trial, I was entirely confident with Dawn's skills. The day of the wedding she was on time, shared everyday tips with each of the women in the bridal party, and was extremely personable. I also enjoyed that Dawn did not make us all look exactly alike. She used colors and techniques that complimented each woman's own beauty.
I would not hesitate in recommending Dawn for make up for any event or occasion. – Kristal Haynes Mason, married March 5, 2011.
“Dawn Newsome is the best make up artist! I was referred to Dawn from a co worker who told me that she would do excellent work for my wedding. The day of the wedding Dawn was very professional. She arrived on time even when myself or my bridal party hadn't arrived yet. Dawn came prepared with lots of different colors, foundations, and she even bought an assistant. Dawn knew exactly what look we all wanted. Dawn's sense of style and creativity definitely shines through her work. Dawn made myself and my bridal party look beautiful! My bridal party as well as guest from the wedding are still commenting on how beautiful we looked. Dawn made me feel absolutely beautiful. After seeing my face,I was completely ready to walk down the aisle. I would definitely book Dawn to do my make up again!" – Erica Burton

Thanks again for the wonderful job you did on the make-up. I felt absolutely beautiful! I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know! Thanks again! – Melinda
I was fortunate enough to work with Dawn Newsome before and on the day of my wedding. Right from the start I felt comfortable and relaxed and it was evident that I was in good hands, Dawn is a true professional! She has years of experience and it shows. Since I live in DC and have a small, not extremely well lit apartment, I was able to hold my trial session in her home studio, which was conveniently located close to my office. Dawn really worked with me to discover a look that I felt not only comfortable with but also made me feel beautiful. I was worried about not "looking like myself" on my wedding day and I was really looking for someone who did an enhanced (and more professional) look of what I typically do myself, I found that in Dawn! A few of my bridesmaids got their make-up done as well for my wedding and they all cannot stop raving about the eyelash extensions and the incredible job she did on their make-up! In fact, one of my girls is going to use her for her own wedding.
Additionally, my Mom got her make-up done and she looked,and consequently felt, beautiful. That was very important to me as I knew that it was a very special day for her as well and I wanted her to feel amazing too! I had my hair and make-up done in our hotel suite with all my girls and my Mom there, Dawn and her assistant stepped right in like they were old time friends and helped to make the experience relaxed as well as memorable. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for an excellent make-up experience! – Mallory Cave
I had a wonderful experience with Dawn Newsome at my recent wedding in DC. Everything was coordinated with Dawn, who was professional, responsive, and so very nice to work with. Dawn and Pia E did makeup ( including individually applied eye lashes) to myself, my mother and my TEN bridesmaids ( all very different looking with different complexions and personal styles). They did a beautiful job on everyone. It was exactly what I had wanted for my natural bridal look and my bridesmaids all loved their makeup. Dawn and Pia travelled to our location, were very flexible and made the getting ready process go very smoothly, despite the number of people involved. I would strongly recommend Pros at Artistry. –Sara
