Marby Kottke

Hello & Welcome! Hola y Bienvenidos! My name is Marby & I am a Professional Makeup Artist in the nations capital ( WASHINGTON,DC). If you couldn’t already tell by my intro – I am also bilingual! I am based in the DMV area (DC, MARYLAND, & VIRGINA), & I also travel out of state & out of country for my desired clients!

I am a self taught & certified Makeup Artist & have been practicing for over a decade now. My curiosity for beauty and makeup sprung up from watching my mother transform herself with just a swipe of red lipstick. I quickly discovered from that moment on, my love for the art of makeup. Makeup to me is not only a form of art, but a way to express  and transform yourself to whom ever you want to be! The first time I applied eyeliner on myself was at the age of 14 – the feeling it gave me was instant CONFIDENCE and POWER. You know the kind of power a super hero feels when they put on their mask or cape? That is the power I strive to give all of my clients to conquer their day!  

MY SPECIALTIES range from minimal natural makeup to dramatic and more intricate makeup looks. Whatever it is that you are looking to achieve whether it be on your special day, group parties, or just cause “I’m living my best life and why not treat yo’ self!”. My goal is to make you feel as FABULOUS as you are on the inside, outside.
