Lyndhurst Mother Makes Magic With Makeup

LyndhurstFrom the Lyndhurst Daily Voice, 02/26/2016 
Matt Speiser

LYNDHURST, N.J. — Award-winning Lyndhurst makeup artist Victoria De Los Rios says she’s addicted to making women feel beautiful.

“It’s like a high for me,” De Los Rios, 40, told Daily Voice. “It never gets old to watch a woman look herself in the mirror after I have finished working on her.”

De Los Rios’ addiction has propelled her business, ” My Makeup Artist Victoria ,” to be hired for more than 250 weddings annually.

It has also earned the mother multiple KNOT Hall Of Fame Awards and opportunities to showcase her “work” on TV commercials on Bravo, Food Network, Style Network and Lifetime Channel.

“With all of this success, I feel that nothing is impossible,” De Los Rios said. “I have had a lot of mountains to climb in my life and I feel that I knocked every one of those mountains out of the park.”

Following in her father’s footsteps, De Los Rios began painting when she was 4 years old. At 8, she found makeup in her mom’s purse.

She put the two together and, ouala !

De Los Rios’ childhood discovery ended up saving her when she was laid off from her job in the mortgage industry during the financial crisis of 2007.

“There were a lot of doubters and naysayers when I first decided to pursue makeup,” De Los Rios said. “But it was in my head and in my heart so I had to do it.”

Today “My Makeup Artist Victoria” employs twelve hair and makeup artists, and De Los Rios spends her weekends traveling to weddings around the country to provide her services.

“I think I’ve been successful because I love what I do,” De Los Rios said. “I’m not focused on making money I am focused on making my clients happy.”

Knot Hall Of FameTHE KNOT REVEALS HALL OF FAME OF
BEST OF THE BEST IN WEDDING INDUSTRY
First-Ever Wedding Industry Hall of Fame
Pronounces Preeminent Vendors Across the U.S.

NEW YORK (October 1, 2013) – Whether they’re trying to find the wedding dress salon with the best service in Philadelphia, the most creative wedding photographers in Los Angeles, New York’s top cake bakers or Miami’s hottest reception sites, engaged couples across the country want the inside scoop from real brides. The Knot Wedding Network, which is composed of the top two wedding websites, TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, today announces the first-of-its-kind wedding industry Hall of Fame for the all-time best wedding vendors across the United States.

Comprised of winners of the annual Best of Weddings, a by-brides-for-brides guide to the top wedding vendors in 80-plus cities across the U.S., the Hall of Fame inducts wedding vendors who have won four or more Best of Weddings awards. This honorable list of more than 330 inductees includes less than 1 percent of wedding professionals.

“For the past seven years, WeddingChannel.com Reviews has been the definitive resource for our brides, providing them with unparalleled vendor recommendations directly from the tried-and-true experiences of fellow brides,” said Carley Roney, cofounder of TheKnot.com. “We’re beyond thrilled to induct our first-ever Hall of Fame, crowning the best of the best across the country, based on more than 700,000 reviews from real brides.”

“Congratulations MY MAKEUP ARTIST VICTORIA for this prestigious award
with a 4 year straight win for Best Bridal Beauty Makeup and Hair Vendor”


aj-socialitesVictoria De Los Rios: a fierce business woman and talented artist that provides the utmost service on a woman’s special day; owner of My Makeup Artist Victoria.

“You can call me Vicky.”
When you interact with Vicky for the first time, you’ll immediately feel the positive vibes as she listens attentively to the vision for your big day. She is personable, passionate, and genuine. She takes her time in ensuring that you are a more beautiful version of yourself for that special occasion. From our perspective, she doesn’t do transformations; she enhances the beauty that already exists. With 14 years of experience, her artistry comes naturally.

The Journey
Vicky launched her makeup career with Lancôme and later joined the MAC team, where she received her MAC certification. Subsequently, she had the opportunity to work at a spa in northern New Jersey where she further honed her skills and expanded her knowledge of hair and skincare. Vicky started as a one woman show. She would (and still does) travel to the bride’s home with her MAC makeup and other beautifying tools. Today, she has a team that provides a repertoire of on-site services. She now has My Beauty Loft in North Arlington, NJ. There, all women have the opportunity to go through the beautification process for any special occasion with Vicky or one of her trained team members.

The Artistry
Vicky is an unbelievably talented artist who has trained her team so that they are able to provide the same quality service. My Makeup Artist Victoria is frequently sought out for their airbrush HD application. It’s highly recommended along with lashes (of your choice). The services don’t stop there; her hair artists can create any bridal style with or without extensions to give you the perfect look. Her team can also provide spray tans and facials. If you’re the bride that may want that extra attention on your big day, they can provide an array of services, like the Bridal VIP Service, which will allow you to get touch ups throughout different moments of your big day (i.e. ceremony, during photo shoots, reception, etc.)

Why My Makeup Artist Victoria?
AJ Socialites supports determined and ambitious female entrepreneurs. She transformed her vision and passions into a career she loves. Additionally, during your trials and on the day of your special event, Vicky and her team put you at ease, and most importantly make you feel gorgeous. We love Vicky, but you don’t have to take our word for it, as she has been named best in the industry. 2012 The Knot Best of Weddings and the Bride Choice Award 2012 are a few of her accolades. If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she’s been featured on Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, and The Wedding Bee. She’s also done J Socialite’s makeup back in 2011 and recently made one of our brides even more beautiful for her June wedding.

When choosing a professional makeup artist to enhance your natural beauty, choose someone who is talented, dependable, and understanding. Whether you want a natural, glamorous, or dramatic look,the makeup artist should accomplish whatever your heart desires. You will have pictures to remind you of every detail, and you want to make sure that you look timeless and flawless.

Here’s to Vicky and her team at My Personal Artist Victoria and My Beauty Loft, and a more stunning you.
