Philadelphia Makeup Artist & Stylist bio picture
  • Thanks so much for taking a look at my site!

    My name is Victoria Roggio.  I am a Philadelphia based Makeup Artist and Stylist working in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Beyond (you name the place and I’ll travel there).  

I was born and raised in the Republic of Moldova, Eastern Europe.  Since I was a child, I’ve always been fascinated with art and the professional makeup industry.  My mother was a makeup artist who I spent years shadowing as an apprentice.  Since then, I’ve created my own philosophy and it’s simple.  I believe in my artistic talent and I believe in myself.  I use my creative skills and vision to help bring out the best in people while keeping an emphasis on their natural beauty.  

I will help you achieve the perfect look for any occasion, using makeup to enhance your natural features and to project an attractive persona that maintains it’s own distinct character.  I love what I do and that type of passion speaks for itself. 

I am available for commercial and editorial shoots along with weddings or any other unique event.  Please feel free browse around and definitely reach out to me if you’d like to learn more about my services offered or would like to collaborate. 



    Warm regards,

     

Tips for your Engagement Photo Session

Being engaged comes with plenty of excitement, and one aspect plenty of brides-to-be look forward to is their engagement shoot. It is very important to have the right makeup and hair for your engagement session.  These photos look best when they look like you. But in case you’re still a little unsure of things, here are five tips to keep in mind when it’s picture time:

* Pick a good primer, I honestly believe that it is a very important step whenever I am doing makeup for a photo shoot or a wedding. It helps to even out the skin tone and works great as a base for the rest of the makeup.

* Go full coverage  A foundation with full coverage, like Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation ($42), will cover just about everything. And if you’re worried about cake face, never fear. Heavy foundations like this were made with cameras in mind, and your photographer’s lens won’t be able to detect it.

* Be blushed and bronzed. These two products work together to make you look gorgeous, so leaving one out can make you look flat. Pick up a duo like Lorac Blush/Bronzer Duo ($30), and start by sweeping the blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Then contour below the blush with the bronzer Compact Soleil Bronzer by Chantecaille ($45).

* Get a good blow out or loose curls From your engagement party and bridal shower to your bachelorette party and rehearsal dinner, have a simple, go-to hairstyle that makes you look and feel great is key. You will feel pretty and yourself! ($45)

* Have some options for your wardrobe The primary guideline for both women and men is that you wear clothes that you love, that make you feel confident and comfortable. If you are looking for some styling ideas and personal wardrobe consulting & shopping,  feel free to contact Kristin Camiel.

An Indian Wedding in Philadelphia

Another stunning bride who got ready for her traditional indian wedding ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel in Philadelphia … It was my pleasure working with Amara and her bridal party. I really love working with Indian weddings since they have so much color and very beautiful jewelry and accessories.
The bride was  wearing a very beautiful traditional dress with silver and blue, with stunning hand-made embroidery.
For Amara’s makeup I used a mix of my MAC Grey Palette with some purples and created a very dramatic look having the main focus on her beautiful eyes. The eye makeup goes perfectly with her  bridal dress.
