"The thing that makes Raymond special is that he legitimately wants you to feel beautiful and confident. He listens to everything you want and collaborates with you to make sure that you are completely satisfied. Raymond has made me look sophisticated and elegant, beautiful and glowing, colorful and sparkling, and even aged me 80 years simply through his artistic skill."

"Thank you so much for serving as my make-up artists for my wedding on August 16, 2014. I could not have been more pleased with your prices, professionalism and artistry.
I appreciated having a pre-wedding session where you took your time with me to get my desired wedding day look beforehand. I also appreciated how patient and detailed you were with doing beautiful looks for not only me, but all 5 of my bridesmaids!
The quality of your work speaks for itself, but I will definitely remind all my friends to book you for their special occasions. You are hands down the best make up artist I've seen in the Hampton Roads area."

I think very highly of Raymond. He is one of the kindest, gentle-spirited persons I’ve met. What a pleasure to have Raymond come to our home and prepare my teen daughter for her acting (head-shot) photo shoot. Raymond arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, which I considered very responsible. I was also impressed that his rolling make-up cart was completely labeled and totally organized. He came in, set up, and got busy immediately. He was so professional and he absolutely LOVES his work! His prices are very affordable. In the end I was so pleased with the way my daughter’s make-up turned out that I paid him double! Honestly. He really ought to raise his prices Raymond is a true ARTIST – just take a look at all of the photos here on this website. His creative results are truly amazing. He will go far in this industry and he has found a career niche that genuinely fits his personality and skills.
