Meet Valerie of Valerie Hammer Makeup Artistry. Valerie and I met for her head shots over the summer, and it was so much fun to finally meet her in person and see how incredible she is.
Valerie does on location makeup and studio bridal makeup. Valerie loves making women feel beautiful. Valerie started this journey when she worked in high end salons throughout college. She attended makeup school and worked for a major cosmetic line. This is what lead her to realize how much she loves making women feel beautiful, especially on the most important day of their life.
What is your best advice for a bride-to-be? “Remember that the day is all about you and your love….don’t sweat the details. The day will still be perfect , even if not EVERYTHING turns out as planned. Oh, and…..don’t forget to eat.” -Valerie
One of Valerie’s favorite things about the wedding day is the first look, be it pre-ceremony or while walking down the isle. Valerie absolutely loves this moment when the groom and bride see each other for the first time that day.
When I asked Valerie what other company or business she admires most, this was her answer. “Completely unrelated to the bridal /beauty industry, but I absolutely LOVE and admire Tia of Villalobos Pitbull Rescue (Pitbulls and Parolees on Animal Planet.) She is an incredibly strong women who has built an incredible legacy based on personal talents and believing in second chances. She is just such a great human being.”
Valerie Hammer Makeup Artistry is based out of Silver Spring, Maryland and serves the DMV and surrounding areas.
