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,

Pretty Monday – Ideas for your Wedding Makeup and Hair

Hello lovely brides-to-be and fellow beauty enthusiasts!

We’re back this wedding season with  more hair and makeup inspiration. Hopefully this will help you choose the perfect style on your special day and make you feel the best!

By far, the number one request for hair styles this season is braids and loose curls. And what better way to add texture, right? Braids can be elegant, fun and messy but also chic and romantic. Read on for more inspiration and looks that’ll light a spark for wedding day hair ideas!

 Whether your wedding style is modern beach chic (far left), rustic romantic (middle) or vintage classic (far right) braids can make your wedding day hair style memorable. Lots of brides and bridesmaids are loving this look, they realize it adds volume, depth and takes a basic updo to a whole other level. Braids together with curls make fine hair look full and voluminous and are the perfect canvas to create a piece of art in already thick hair. Braids can also really bring out hair color (cut makes a big difference too!), plan ahead to have your hair colored or highlighted to maximize this style.

Regina had a very good vision of what she wanted for her wedding day. Classic and sophisticated bridal makeup. The main focus was her skin, I kept it very natural, dewy and luminous.

Fall 2014 Wedding Trends

BY REBECCA DIEROLF

Fall wedding fashion this year is all about the right colors, right accessories, and the right amount of coverage.

Making it big this year are dresses with lace coverage, whether it’s lace sleeves, lace top, or complete lace overlay. As seen in the collage above, lace covering the décolletage area is making a huge appearance this season.

To go along with the sheer romance of lace, deep lipstick shades and smoldering makeup are big for this season, along with simple, low-laying hairstyles.

Colors spotted on the runway this season can be seen in the collage and are as follows: royal blue, radiant orchid, aluminum, aurora red, misted yellow, sangria, mauve mist, cypress, and cognac.

No matter what the theme of your special day, a romantic atmosphere to your look is a must for fall weddings this season.

Wear Neons Without Looking Like a Highlighter

BY REBECCA DIEROLF

Adding neons to any outfit is a definite way to bring some sass! Better yet, when worn correctly, neons can brighten your complexion and add that extra ‘wow factor’ to any outfit—casual or dressy! Here are five great tips to pulling off neons perfectly without looking like your high school highlighter.

1. Play Up Colors That Already Look Great On You. If you look great in deep blue, try electric blue instead! Do you always look flawless in pale pink? Why not try neon pink? By sticking with the same color pallets that you already pull off without a hitch, you can master neons in no time.

2. Start Small. If you’re new to neons and are not sure how to reach the perfect balance, start small. Adding neon accessories to an outfit featuring neutrals can add the perfect pop without going overboard. Great accessories to start with are bags or clutches, shoes, necklaces, or even nail polish!

3. Pair Plainly. If you’re going for something playful and fun but not overdone, pair neons with light neutrals such as white or beige. As the spring and summer seasons come to an end, pair neons with darker neutrals like grey or black.

4. Color Block. If you want to wear more than one neon color, color blocking is the perfect go-to! Color blocking is when each article of clothing is a different, solid color (as seen in the lower-most left-hand picture in the collage). Pairing solid colors brings an outfit together perfectly without becoming tacky or confusing for your eyes.

5. Own It. The most essential part to any outfit is owning it! Be confident, feel powerful, and know you’re beautiful exactly how you are! Master this tip and you’ll be the envy of the neon world!
