  • There are not enough words to describe how amazing Carl is at what he does. He did my makeup for my COVID-19 micro-wedding and it could not have turned out more perfectly. I’ve had my makeup done by other professionals but Carl blew them all out of the water. He asked questions to understand my day-to-day makeup routine and then made me look (and feel) like the best possible version of myself. His personality made the day so much fun and the whole experience was unbelievably relaxing. Working with him was an absolute blast and made an already special day even more special. I felt extremely safe with the COVID precautions he took and can’t wait for him to my makeup for the bigger wedding celebration we’re planning for next year. Will never use any one other than Carl!

  • Carl performed makeup services for myself and five of my bridesmaids. If you're like me, you've pored over local wedding blogs and social media, and know that Carl is a big deal in the industry. In person though, he's amazingly down-to-earth, humble, and a good conversationalist for the hour plus you spend together while he's applying makeup. In terms of the experience, magic may sound exaggerated, but it's really not. I'm stationed overseas in a country with lots of pollution and spent seven months of my thirteenth month engagement wedding planning overseas. That, plus the stress of moving to a new environment and starting a new job = a wrecked complexion. Coming back to DC a mere week before the wedding, I was gravely worried the blemishes and imperfections of my face would be immortalized forever on photos and video. A facial right when I landed helped; Carl did the rest. Though there was enough makeup to smooth out my complexion, my look still appeared natural and no... Read more

  • I think Carl is the type of vendor who you should just trust 100%. He knows what his clients are looking for a give them exactly that, but more radiating. He is an amazing person inside and out and that is the type of energy you want on your wedding day. He is great. 10/10!

  • Carl is such a professional and worth every penny! He made me and my family look and feel our very best on my wedding day. Not only is he a talented artist, he is also SO calming and efficient. One of our favorite wedding vendors we hired and hope to use him again in the future!

  • I ended up hiring Carl and his team after being a bridesmaid in another wedding where he was the makeup artist. Carl was punctual at both weddings, very fun and nice and he made everyone look absolutely amazing! I couldn't have been happier!

  • There is no question, Carl knows what he is doing. He gets it. He excels at his job. He's a natural. He may be more expensive than others, but he is 100% worth it. I did trials with a few different people for my wedding day makeup and Carl was hands down the best.

  • Carl is fabulous at what he does. I think people skimp out the most on make-up because the cost of a wedding can really add up and brides think they can fix it up themselves (big mistake!), but in all honesty, you get what you pay for - and Carl is worth every single penny. Carl requires you to do a bridal trial which is really nice because then on the day of the wedding everything runs seamlessly. Carl did my bridal make-up as well as 5 other people in my wedding party and everyone looked amazing. He is so calm and easy to work with - he fit right in with the crowd and even put a little eyeshadow on my niece and flower girl who was watching him with adoration (so sweet, it made her day !) I don't wear a lot of make-up, so natural glam was really what I was looking for and he hit the nail right on the head. I was so happy to have him on my wedding weekend and I couldn't recommend him more - he has the magic touch !

  • Love Carl from the minute my daughter and I met him! Carl did my daughter's make-up for her Bridal Shower and both of us for her Wedding day. He is truly talented and we were lucky that he was available for this very special day. The make-up was impeccable beauty! He has a very calming energy and wonderful person, We loved working with him and hope to work with him again! Thank you Carl!!

  • Carly Ray is professional, experienced and has an eye for beauty. He was worth every penny and made me look and feel exceptional on my wedding day. It was great that I had done the bridal trial with him several months in advance so we could perfect my look on the big day. He made the bridal party look their best as well. I highly recommend him and his services - he truly is the best in the business.

  • Carl was profession, cool, calm and collected. He listens and executes with precision. Second time he’s done makeup for me, first as a bridesmaid and then as a bride, and both times he’s been amazing and consistent!!

  • Carl did my makeup for my engagement party, rehearsal dinner and wedding (along with my family and fake bridesmaids). He is magic. No words to describe how beautiful he not only makes you look, but feel.

  • Carl is the best- you can not find anyone better! He is so fun to be around and he will make you feel your best on your wedding day. Not only did he make me feel amazing, all of my bridesmaids were in love with their makeup and were raving about it all night long. My makeup stayed in place throughout the ceremony and reception, even when I had a couple of tears at the altar. There is no better than Carl and he will make you feel like a dream as you walk down the aisle!
