May 2024 • bachelorette Party

Recently I was part of planning an epic surprise wedding event at the gorgeous Conrad Hotel in DC and I knew the team I needed to hire was from Own Your Wonder. I had previously visited their Georgetown location and loved Kristina and the team.Karina and Fiona were fabulous, they arrived on time, took care of all the party and delivered wonderful results for everyone. Everyone was delighted with the results of hair and makeup and how efficient there were honoring the timelines given and even making wonderful product recommendations and sharing techniques.Highly recommend them and will definitely use them for any future events in DC.Services: Make-up services



April 2024 • group-trip Party

I went with my wife and a friend visiting from Puerto Rico. My friend needed make up done for a gala. The artists did a great job and the owner Kristina was friendly and accommodating to us men waiting for our wife and girlfriend to finish.

I had the pleasure of working with Alexandria (makeup artist) and Christina (owner). They were extremely hospitable, hardworking, and talented. I went here to get makeup done for my engagement photos. I was extremely nervous as I don't normally wear makeup, and left their feeling amazing. Thank you!



December 2023 • holiday Party

I've had my makeup done twice now at Own Your Wonder (once for a birthday and once for New Year's) and it's been such a positive experience! It's really easy to make appointments online and it's a much more personalized experience than going to a big box makeup counter. Both times, the artists listened to what I wanted and delivered - I left feeling confident and beautiful! The owner is awesome too; she's been in both times and hearing her story and why she started Own Your Wonder makes me even more likely to come back (I love supporting women-owned local businesses!) Well applied makeup definitely makes a huge difference so I absolutely recommend Own Your Wonder if you're looking to get makeup done for any occasion.



December 2023 • birthday Party

GO HERE!!! I searched for a professional that could give me a drastic makeover for my birthday prior to a night out in DC. I cannot do makeup for the life of me and I usually rock the natural look. I wanted a full makeover to feel extra beautiful on my special day. Own your Wonder was definitely the best option out there!!! You can tell your artist what your looking for and show them inspo from online. I had Alexandria (Alex) who was AWESOME!!! She has such an upbeat, bubbly personality which made the experience a lot more enjoyable. I am very shy and she made me feel comfortable. She was super knowledgeable and constructed the perfect look for me based on my outfit and colors that would suit my skin tone/eyes. I've had my makeup done for events a few times before - but she was the best BY FAR at contouring my face, sculpting my brows, and just overall use of color and technique. Can't say enough wonderful things about Alex and Own Your Wonder!!!



October 2023 • good-time Party

I needed my makeup done for a boudoir shoot and Duaa was amazing! I'm pretty picky when it comes to my makeup and she understood exactly what I was going for. She was professional and took the time to check-in and asked me how I liked the look several times along the way. She works with you vs. on you. I was genuinely so pleased with the way my makeup turned out. Not cakey at all and photographed beautifully. Christina is also such a sweetheart. She is the owner of Own Your Wonder and I love her story. She was warm, welcoming and encouraging and has an invested interest in empowering women. Please consider Own Your Wonder for your next photoshoot, special occasion, etc. You won't regret it!

We had a wonderful virtual makeup lesson with Vicky who was so talented and a great teacher. Can't wait to get my make up done in person again but until then, this was a fun birthday activity to celebrate a friend.



July 2023 • good-time Party

found the website online and booked appointments. Disclosure: I love makeup and I love a great beauty fix! This is such an awesome, comfortable way to spend some time before heading out for the night!



March 2023 • other Party

I found out about Own your Wonder through my friend/coworker. We were scheduled to take our headshots for our job's website and we wanted to make sure we looked our best. I am SO glad my friend told me about Own your Wonder! Alex did both of our make up and she was efficient and absolutely wonderful! I got compliments on my make up all day long and I could not stop admiring my final look! Alex even let me use their fabulous ring light. I cannot recommend Own your Wonder enough! I will definitely be returning!

I have now worked twice with Karina of Own Your Wonder, and I am SO HAPPY to have met her. She did a phenomenal job with my makeup for a friend's wedding in June 2022 and then my own wedding in November 2022. I was thrilled to have found Karina after going through a full-glam wedding trial with another artist. The look was not me at all, and I went searching for someone who could achieve a more understated look. Karina fit the bill perfectly. Karina always came to me and charged a minimal cost for travel; she explained everything she was doing, as she was doing it; and she -- expertly -- did a complete pivot on my wedding makeup look between the trial and the big day. I truly can't wait to work with her again!
