Hania Issa

POTOMAC'S PREMIER MAKEUP ARTIST

Thanks for stopping by. I'm passionate about helping women look beautiful and feel more confident!  Being happy with our appearance empowers us to be our best, and allows our inner beauty to shine through. I would love to show you what’s possible.

Your transformation awaits!

My Signature Makeup

You want to look your best and enhance your natural beauty with makeup.  But whenever you’ve hired a professional, the result either didn’t look like you or didn’t have the wow factor it should. Something just didn’t feel right.

 

An artist’s most important tools are not her brushes, but her eyes.  My eyes can see not only what’s there, but what is possible.  I’m also a great listener who loves to provide exceptional customer service.  With over 15 years’ experience, I can translate your vision and your tastes into the look you’ve always wanted.  

At your appointment, I would like to see photos of makeup styles that you like.  We will discuss your vision and I will create a look that captures the essence of who you are and exceeds your expectations.  For my clients' health and safety, all of my brushes and makeup products are either sanitized or brand new for each appointment.

Treat yourself to my signature experience!

Client Love

“I'm a photographer and have used Hania for makeup for several photoshoots for my clients. She's always prompt, professional, and does a flawless job. My clients love her and the makeup she does photographs so well and makes my clients look incredible! I'm excited to use her more in the future and I always know the photoshoots will be amazing.”

"I have had the good fortune of having Hania do my make-up and eyebrows and I can attest from personal experience that she is by far the BEST. She knows exactly how to highlight your features by using the appropriate color palate and applying just the right amount of make-up to give you a naturally stunning look. Whether she is applying my make-up for a special occasion or simply tending to my eyebrows, I trust her implicitly to make me look my absolute best. She is the most talented artist with whom I have ever worked.”

“For my wedding, I didn’t want to look ‘made up’ or artificial in any way. Hania asked me questions, drew out more of what I wanted and did an incredible job. I looked in the mirror and was thrilled! She made me feel beautiful and authentic.”

MEET HANIA

I discovered a love for makeup nearly twenty years ago after initially pursuing my passion for art as a fashion designer.  After studying makeup in cosmetology school, I completed my training under the tutelage of some of Lebanon’s top makeup artists, and honed my skills in television studios, at fashion photography shoots, with pop music stars, and with bridal parties.  I later trained with a dermatologist specializing in acne treatment, and began offering facials and eyebrow design in addition to makeup services.

After relocating to Washington, DC, in 2009 and obtaining my esthetician license, I worked at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa at the Willard Hotel and later joined Karma Beauty Lounge by Erwin Gomez.  While at Karma, I worked several red carpet and celebrity events, was on location at CBS television news studios, and was featured in Washingtonian magazine’s “Favorite Facials of 2013.” I spent a few years abroad for my husband's job, and after relocating to Potomac, MD, in 2020, I founded Beauty by Hania, LLC.
