Welcome to My World!

My name is Shadi.  I'm a Professional Makeup Artist, born with lipstick in my hand. 

Makeup has always been my passion and I've been active in the beauty industry in the Washington DC area since I was 16 years old.  I've managed a salon and day spa, I've done freelance and I've done every type of makeup – bridal, glamor, fantasy, fashion, prom, theatre, airbrush – everything.  I also teach Makeup Artistry classes at the Esthetic Institute in Virginia.

The personal vision of my clients is my ultimate priority.  I make it a focus to build and maintain relationships with all of my clients and students by encouraging feedback, asking the right questions and listening carefully.  I love getting to know each of my clients.  I enjoy hearing all about their wedding plans, their prom dates, their award ceremonies and special events.  The back story is a very big part of the vision and the vision is what makes the magic happen. 

I like to think of makeup as an embodiment of who you are at your very best.  When you get up from my makeup chair, you will love the way you look and you will love the way others look at you!  My artistic approach is delicate, subtle, timeless & elegant. 

Thank you for getting to know my world. ♥
