Washington women barely have enough time to curl their own eyelashes much less spend hours poring over the most ideal cosmetic colors for their skin tone, the newest makeup application techniques, or the best most bountiful powder brushes.Â We ladies are busy busy busy and even when we sit in the chair getting our hair did, we are tapping away at our iPads, iPhones, or in my case,Â an Android.Â In this town, time is of the essence, but we do want to look good.Â So if there’s a pro out there who can help us achieve the look that we want for a special occasion (or even any occasion for that matter) we know what to do. Make the call.
Enter professional and award winning makeup artist Carl Ray.Â Deemed for years at a “celebrity makeup artist” and voted by Washingtonian magazine for 10 years in a row as Washington’s top makeup artist, this bridal guru has more talent than his barely fit into his tool kit.Â For example his client list is extensive and includes FLOTUS Michelle Obama (he’s her personal artist), women and men like Stella McCartney, Alanis Morrisette, Melinda Gates, Mira Sorvino, Paula Abdul, Bo Derek, Marlee Matalin, Mrs. Bob Newhart, Tipper Gore, Mrs. Nelson Rockefeller, Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, Queen Noor, Princess Hussein, Stevie Wonder, Tony Danza, Chris Mathews, President Bill Clinton, and many more, found on HERE.
Carl is the exclusive Artistic Talent at George Salon at the Four Seasons Hotel and has been for 15 years. When I get my hair done by Ismail Tekin, there’s rarely a time that I don’t spot Carl dipping and dabbing, brushing and highlighting some lovely damsel in the corner.
So ladies, if you are a bride to be, chairperson of that huge fundraiser, celebrator of a birthday/anniversary/deal closing or even just ready for a night out on the town (or want to capture the heart of the hot man you’ve been dating), call on this handsome charming devil, Carl.
