Victoria Roggio has spent nearly a decade building her client base and her reputation as a respected makeup artist and beauty expert. She has lent her talents to hundreds of weddings from Philadelphia to San Francisco, as well as international affairs in Mexico, Italy, Moldova, and Russia.
Her approach with clients is caring and collaborative—with a strong belief that the key to a beautiful look is not applying loads of makeup, but using the proper techniques and taking care to prepare the skin beforehand. This results in a comfortable, long-lasting makeup application that accentuates clients' natural beauty for their special occasion.
At VRB, our team is trained to produce fresh, radiant skin with a mesmerizing eye—essentials for looking flawless both in person and on camera. We strive to make every bride feel like a celebrity stepping out onto the red carpet: glowing, beautiful, yet still like herself.
Our artists are trained by Victoria personally to embody her high standards of excellence for beauty. Each team member is also licensed and certified in the fields of esthetics, cosmetology, or makeup artistry.
To ensure you feel comfortable and confident going into your big day, we conduct a pre-wedding trial. This is a time for you to share your vision, discuss any requests, and ask questions. We recommend you schedule a trial 3 to 6 months before your wedding day, allowing us to test for sensitivity to any of our makeup or skincare products. The trial usually takes 1 to 2 hours, though we will spend as much time as needed for you to be completely happy with the final result.
At the end of your trial, we’ll take professional portraits, giving you the opportunity to see how your makeup and hair will look in photographs on your wedding day. Trials can be conducted at our studio or on location, and can be arranged for mothers-of-the-bride and other members of the bridal party upon request.
