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,


2015 Spring/Summer Favorite Drugstore Products

1. L’Oréal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup ($10.00) This is my all-time favorite drugstore foundation. I discovered it way back during my first trip to the US in 2008. Now I use it on my clients or myself whenever I need a product with great coverage that doesn’t get cake-y. For best results apply with a wet beauty blender (another drug store staple).

2. L’Oreal® Paris Voluminous Original Mascara ($6.00) I’ve been using this mascara since high school (almost 10 years). I love that I can apply one coat for a more natural look or layer for more dramatic lashes. It is definitely one of the MUST-have products for your daily beauty routine. Ladies, think about beauty icons like Sophia Loren, Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe – they always rocked big lashes. Trust me, dramatic lashes will never go out of style!

3. Warm up your complexion with the vibrant Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Coral Crush ($7.00). It’s all about bright lips this season – everywhere you turn you’ll be seeing brave women with even braver lips!

4. CoverGirl Queen Collection Eyeliner ($4.99) When it comes to vibrant colored liners, less is more. Not only is this eyeliner perfect for brightening up your everyday makeup routine, but it glides on and stays on for hours throughout the day. Apply a small pop of color underneath your bottom lash line and smudge with a small brush for a softer look.

5. The hottest trend for 2015 is thicker, fuller and bold eyebrows with a slight arch. FACT: thick eyebrows make a face look younger. When it comes to eyebrow products, there are affordable options that work absolute wonders, enhancing your look and drawing attention to your features. Fill your brows using Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Precise Shaping Pencil ($8.00) and keep your brows in place with a clear brow gel Boots No. 7 Lash and Brow Perfector ($8.00).

 6. Whether you’re naturally tan or practically see-through, the right bronzer can instantly make you look and feel prettier. There’s something about having a sun-kissed glow that immediately puts me in a better mood and makes you feel gorgeous. Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light in Deep Bronze ($9.99) remains a staple in my makeup bag since it adds a gorgeous glow to your skin and it blends effortlessly.

Hi everyone! Today’s blog post is dedicated to skin and some advices that you have to take into consideration during the time you are engaged and not only. I’m starting a new series of posts on my blog, sharing with you my favorite beauty/makeup/hair products, since this has been the most requested topic from my readers lately.

These products might look very familiar to you, even though they’re not being sold everywhere and most of the times you can purchase them in SPAs around the world or online. Trust me great skin and good regimen is everything and it will make your life so much easier.

In the past 2 years I have gained a lot of knowledge about skincare and great products, guess what I am working with one of the most talented and knowledgeable team at Rescue Spa, Philadelphia. Being a product junk I try everything what’s out there, and then of course I share my knowledge and experience with my readers and clients. I love skin, I love healthy body and I love everything that makes you pretty and feel good. My theory is very simple, less is more. Having a healthy skin is everything and now is the right time to address questions if you have them, now is a good time to meet and talk about your concerns. I am happy to recommend you some great products that changed my life and made me wear so much less makeup and feel great about my skin.

In the past few months I have met a good number of clients who had the same problem dehydration and dull skin. Often people forget about the basics that we have to follow: Cleanse, Exfoliate and Hydrate. I’ve heard so many times the myth “drinking 8 glasses of water a day will rehydrate your skin”. Well guess what, it is great to stay hydrated and drink a lot of water but there are some essential steps that you still have to follow and make some time to give love to your beautiful face and body.

1. Cleaning The Skin sets the stage for everything else that will take place in your skin. More so than any other part of your skin-care routine, it is essential that the cleansing products you use are gentle. Overcleaning or using cleansers that are too drying is a major cause of irritation, dry patches and sometimes redness. Different cleansers suit different faces. I love mild, creamy formulas of cleansers because they don’t irritate my skin, but a foaming cleanser or gel cleanser may be better for oily skin (Valmont Nature Cleansing with a Gel). I use daily to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin Lait U by Biologique Recherche. It’s more than a cleanser, it’s also a makeup remover.  Lait U is a non-oily, fresh cleanser that respects the skin’s natural moisturizing processes. It is recommended for all skin types. It gently removes makeup, impurities, and cleanses without dehydrating. Respects the function of the epidermis. Does not leave an oily film.

2. Exfoliate your skin. I love and I can rave about P50 Original 1970 by Bilogique Recherche. This toner is “like a facial in a bottle” (Danuta Mieloch). It hydrates, exfoliates and balances the pH level in your skin. This product has changed my life and I highly recommend to use it . I have noticed that my skin feels fresh and young, I have a natural glow after using P50 Toner for over a year in the AM and PM. However, when I wake up in the morning, and my skin feels so soft and most importantly, a lot more rested. And since my schedule has been super hectic, that’s absolutely crucial for me.

3. Moisturize. When staring at the shelves and shelves of skin-care products, it can seem as if there is a cream for every pore. But finding the right formula is actually pretty simple. You can always make an app to see an esthetician or get samples of products that you find interesting and find more about them. I personally like to layer my products since I don’t like to feel a heavy cream on my skin. I use a Serum under my eyes and checks area to brighten my skin and on top a moisturizer. It is also great to have one moisturizer for the day that does a double duty. Day formula should contain a broad – spectrum SPF of at least 15, and after that , you can pick your weapon : anti- oxidants, anti-aging, anti-acne, you name it and I am happy to help you.

Silk Plus Serum by Bilogique Recherche unifies the complexion of the skin. is a moisturizing, smoothing serum that contains high concentrations of regenerating agents, Hyaluronic Acid, Cucumber and Silk extracts which really soothe the skin and leave it feeling silky soft! It is recommended for all skin types.

As my day moisturizer I prefer to use Embryolisse, it is lightweight and great for all skin types. “This cult Parisian cream is found in every makeup artist’s backstage kit bag.” Packed with nourishing, skin-plumping ingredients, Embryolisse’s cult formula can be used as a moisturizer, cleanser, mask or primer. See the tone and feel of your complexion visibly improve thanks to Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Soy Protein – all are rich in essential vitamins, fatty and amino acids proven to stimulate cell renewal and collagen fibers.

  • Suitable for all ages and skin types, including children and babies – perfect for men after shaving
  • Leaves even dry and sensitive skin soothed and comforted
  • Rebuilds the hydrolipidic film that protects the skin from environmental aggression
  • Can be used as a cleanser, makeup remover, beauty mask or after sun
  • Paraben Free and Not Tested on Animals
