We were really impressed with you yesterday. You did a remarkable job on my makeup. I have never felt more beautiful.

I am in anticipation of what you will do on my wedding day. I wished you could stay for the wedding, however, I do understand you have other obligations. Tonya Dodson

Thanks again for the mini make-up session. I had a blast. My husband loved it! He was sad when I washed my face before going to sleep!

Take care 🙂 Moltu G., Odenton, MD

You did a terrific job on the makeup for my wedding! I got so many compliments! I hope your own wedding went wonderfully and that your book does super!! Catherine Elizabeth W., Washington, DC

I truly enjoyed the makeup experience with Bailey. I was married on May 15th in Silver Spring, Maryland. Bailey and I met prior to the actual wedding day for a makeup orientation. Bailey was extremely professional and punctual on that day. Being that I do not wear makeup she made me feel comfortable with the overall makeup process.

On my wedding day Bailey met me at the church where she did makeup for my bridesmaids and myself. Everything went great and we all looked beautiful. We received many compliments from everyone and I want to thank Bailey for an excellent job. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Thank you Bailey for making me beautiful on my wedding day!!!!

Amerlia C.

Thank you so much for the mini makeover that you did for me. I have played around with makeup (unsuccessfully, I might add) for years. I never could get the foundation right and was deathly afraid of eye shadow. LOL! The tips you showed me and the makeup that I purchased have been GREAT! I have had more compliments on how good I look and how my makeup looks much better. Kimberle R., Washington, DC

Thanks for making me beautiful on my wedding day. I have been so impressed by your high level of professionalism. I will be sure to recommend future brides to you. Good luck with all of your endeavors! LaShada B., Columbia, MD

Thanks so much for everything. It was really wonderful to finally meet you, and I really loved the way you did my makeup. I felt very glamorous running errands that afternoon! (The post office never saw me look so nice!) Thanks so much for everything! Cecelia F., Washington, DC

I wanted to say thanks so much for the wonderful job you did with my makeup and everyone else’s. Everyone said we looked flawless. In addition, although I controlled my tears during the ceremony, I didn’t hold up so well during the dance. Nevertheless, the makeup held up perfectly! So, again, thanks for everything.

About Bailey

About-Bailey

As a professional makeup artist for nearly two decades, this Washington, D.C. native began her fairytale with an incredible start.

Bailey made her debut in 1997 working on a print campaign for Adidas. The same year, she expanded her skills into television. Before you can say, “action,” viewers across the country were seeing her work compliments of BET. Since then, Bailey has provided makeup services for other major entertainment companies, including GOD TV, Discovery Channel, Nickelodeon and Radio One.

After doing makeup for a Nestle Corporation photo shoot, for which she had the pleasure of doing makeup for BET’s CEO Debra Lee, Bailey became Lee’s personal makeup artist and fulfilled the company’s other corporate makeup service needs. Bailey was later asked to join the launch team as the style producer for BET’s new subsidiary, BET.com. There, Bailey provided viewers with numerous beauty and fashion articles and covered world-renowned events like New York’s Fashion Week.

Bailey brings to her craft a noticeable creative flair. Perhaps it stems from the fact that she graduated at 20, with honors, from Howard University with a background in the arts. Or maybe it’s her “gotta have it” personality.

She has written a beauty column for AOL’s Black Voices, and has been featured as a beauty expert on news shows and in news publications such as the New York Daily News, Bustle and Daily Worth. Bailey’s accomplishments certainly indicate that this latest venture will not be her last.

Says Bailey: “Give me a brush, I’ll enhance your beauty. Show me an overly made-up woman, I’ll yell cut. Want a new look, I’ll yell, make-up!”

And that’s a wrap!
