Kind words from our clients

"Virginia is the best at what she does. She has a wonderful personality and is patient when teaching about makeup application. If you take a class with her or have any service done by her you will not be disappointed." -K.K.

"Virginia is very talented and knowledgable when it comes to make up! We (myself and my two teenage daughters) have used her for special occasion application as well as eyebrow threading! I have never had my out of control eyebrows look so amazing- she will be the only person to touch them again! Both if my teen have taken her makeup and skin care class, and not only do they have a great time, but they are so excited to practice! My youngest even wants to be a makeup artist now! We will be continuing to use her for homecoming, prom and senior picture makeup applications as well. I really feel fortunate that we have found Virginia and would highly recommend her to anyone!  On top of all that she has a huge heart and a truly special non-profit- eduskin! Love her and you will too!!!!!!" -Carrie M

"Virginia is the whole package! Professional, skilled, fun and always the teacher. She did my makeup for graduation and I felt beautiful. If you're looking for skill and personality, then she's the one for you. Thanks Virginia for always being the BEST!" -Meredith D.

"Virginia has opened my eyes to a look of my own I never even realized I possessed!  I never realized the amount of simple technique that could be obtained from a professional make up application class!  She did such an incredible job threading and shaping my teenage daughter's eyebrows, my daughter couldn't stop talking about "how beautiful she feels she looks".  Virginia's new Teen skin care class has been so good for my daughter's confidence level, I feel I owe the world to her.  We will definitely be going to Virginia for any of our skin care advisement!" -Carrie H.

"Virginia has extensive knowledge on make up application as well as skin care. I was having issues with my skin and at the age if 32 it's not fun when your still breaking out. Her suggestions and tips have helped my skin clear up. She also has done my make up for special occasions it's so nice to have someone to go to that I can trust. Go to Virginia if you need anything she is amazing!!!" -Lacy S.

"I wish I had met someone like Virginia when I was a teenager! Her makeup classes are so fun and make it so easy to apply makeup with confidence. She also got my eyebrows looking better than ever! I will never go back to waxing after having them threaded by Virginia! Tell all your friends, and plan your makeup class together! It's so fun!" - Patricia H.

"Virginia,It was a pleasure to work with you yesterday. Your professionalism, charm, organization and most of all cleaniless is a model's ideal make up artist. I have experienced the ups and downs in this industry. One of the main downs is having a make up artist of a different ethnicity do my make up. In most cases they have been reluctant because it's challenging for them to match the colors. As a result, I have used the same make up artist consistently for the longest time. Unfortunately for me all good things must come to an end. She moved and now I have to start all over again. lol However, you proved that it is possible to embace the challenge and for that I am grateful. You did an excellent job! I highly recommend your services to anyone and will call on you in the future.  Again thank you for your time and services!" - BJ, Model  

“One of my top three "go to" MUA's, particularly when I'm traveling to Houston or Galveston, Virginia is guaranteed satisfaction AND fun! With her laid back style and knowledge of both her craft as a makeup artist and a model, I never worry. She also holds a mean reflector. Will be booking her over, and over, and over, and over...”-Del Geno Durham - Photographer  

"You can be confident in Virginia's makeup. It will bring out the best of your model. Two things set her apart from other competent mua's: her model experience and her enthusiasm for the creative process of photography. Her model experience makes her a contributor to the image making process and her enthusiasm nurtures the whole creative process."  - Jerry Brown, Photographer @ Skyline Studios

"Virginia is a wonderful professional. On time, ready to go, and works to make the look work. The makeup looks great - but she also builds a solid rapport with the model. She makes the shoot work smoothly." -Bob Warren, Photographer @ Skyline Studios  

"I can't recommend Virginia highly enough!  She's a great makeup artist (and model!), she takes her work seriously, she's reliable, thorough and fun.  She always goes in with the attitude that she has a personal stake in making the model look great.  The most important thing to me though is that she's super cool, funny and down to earth, which helps everyone get into the groove and have a great shoot.  Also, she has an instinctive sense for posing and she's happy to give new models/photographers direction." - Jacob M, Photographer  

"I loved working with Virginia as my MUA! She is dedicated, responsible, and amazing at what she does. She has the power to transform faces (with her make-up), bodies (with her posing tips), and minds (with her awesome enthusiasm about everything! Especially the industry). She is very artistic, creative and detailed with her make-up, does her research beforehand to make sure everything looks right, and isn't afraid to go the extra mile to make things perfect. I highly recommend her!" - Janifer, Model   

"I am writing in regards to Virginia Mcconnell. She has been pursuing a career in the entertainment industry for some years now. I highly regard her as a makeup artist.

Her personality is lovable, fun, and she makes sure her clients are happy.  It is a great decision to take her own as an employee or more."  - Kristin Jeanes, Model
