Meet Merry

Merry Burney

Merry is a licensed Permanent Cosmetic Artist, licensed Esthetician and certified Lash Extension Specialist. She believes in natural looking permanent makeup to complement each woman’s own beauty. Whether it’s eyebrows, eyeliner or lips, Merry will enhance your appearance and your confidence. No one treatment she performs is ever the same, as each of her clients have different facial features, bone structure, skin tone, and skin type, which all influence each treatment in different ways. Merry has been in the beauty industry for over 14 years. Because of her passion and determination, she has trained with many of the top permanent makeup artists in the industry, and had the opportunity to work with some of the best photographers, and talent in Virginia. She is extremely experienced in permanent makeup, skincare, and professional makeup for print, editorial, television, model testing, and bridal makeup. Merry loves creating an individual look for each of her clients. As an artist, she takes great pride in her work, and strives to always give 110% to each client.
