Makeup for Main Characters
Traveling Maryland Makeup Artist Serving Bold, Beautiful Looks for Weddings and Special Events
Luxury service and customized care that makes you look and feel like a queen.
Let’s face it. We’ve all been in weddings or had our makeup done by a professional who’s set on executing THEIR vision, not yours. You deserve to look and feel like the star of the show at your wedding or special event, and our team delivers exactly that, every single time.
We take the time before a single stitch of makeup is applied to get to know you, your unique skin type, and your personal preferences. The result? A show-stopping finished look you’re obsessed with that’ll have you feeling confident and radiant on your big day. Because that, my queen, is what you deserve!

“I’ve been to a lot of weddings and am very particular about my makeup. Katie listens so well and makes sure you have the exact look you’re going for (unlike other MUAs I’ve had). Katie sent out a survey to me and my friends to make sure she fully understood our skin types, any allergies or sensitivities, and to get to know us a little. That level of personalization and care made all the difference.
I got SOOO many compliments on my makeup at my wedding, and I know my friends did too. Katie and her team are professionals and make the entire process seamless and stress-free, which us brides NEED! Seriously, I cannot recommend her enough!!”

THE BADDIE BEHIND THE BRUSH
Let’s get a little ~up close and personal~ before we get really up close and personal on your big day!
I’m Katie Withers, Head Makeup Artist and Founder here at Contoured by Katie. For over 10 years, I’ve been expanding my knowledge and experience in special events makeup to help women feel confident and beautiful on their special day.
From my first-ever client back in 2012 (my sister, whose high school homecoming look turned all the heads), to working in-house at A Perfect Face Day Spa in Ocean City (my mom’s business), it became clear from an early age that my knack for creating stunning makeup looks was far more than hobby material.
So naturally, I did what I do and dove headfirst into acquiring the knowledge, skills, and experience to become the very best makeup artist and business owner I could be!
I received extensive 1:1 training with BareMinerals pro makeup artists to refine my skills, and earned my Bachelor’s in Business Administration and a Master’s in Marketing and Business Analytics to supplement my years of experience working in business and beauty.
Without a doubt, all roads led to me founding Contoured by Katie in 2021, and becoming the luxury makeup artist serving Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and beyond.
Some of my favorite things…
Shopping for literally all things makeup, skincare, and clothes — I’m actually the product buyer for my mom’s boutique, Chic Boutique, in Ocean City!
Taking my pug Winston on long walks and bike rides (yes, in a dog backpack I got on Amazon)
Being a total food & bev connoisseur — you will 100% see me with my Venti vanilla sweet cream cold brew on your wedding day!
And of course, helping to make sure you and your wedding party look and feel like a million and one bucks on your best day ever!
"Highly recommend reaching out to Katie for all your beauty/makeup needs! I do not normally wear makeup and when Katie did my makeup she was able to follow my natural features to make me feel (and look) as comfortable and natural as possible! The products she used were light on my skin and looked amazing. She is sure to meet your needs and genuinely cares about your satisfaction throughout the entire process!"
