About Blush Away Makeup

As a certified makeup artist serving Northern Virginia and the D.C. metro area, Finn Mauritzen provides every client with two things: talent rooted in years of industry experience and a passion for the transformative power of natural makeup. Whether preparing a new bride for her big day or a corporate CEO for his next headshot, Finn offers on-site makeup services that feel like a holistic day at the spa—and that leave clients confident in their looks.

Finn’s extensive work in health and beauty has taken her around the globe. During her time with Royal Caribbean International, she provided five-star services for Steiner Leisure Limited’s maritime spas. In Ireland, she managed a five-star spa at the exclusive Killarney Park Hotel. And in America, she managed two beauty stores for Origins and L’Occitane, and served as operations manager for a Revel Medspa in Springfield, Virginia. She has also provided talent makeup for several projects from The Great Courses, a multimedia educational publisher.

A graduate of the Esthetic Institute in Vienna, Virginia, Finn also holds diplomas in holistic therapies, diet and nutrition and aromatherapy. Finn offers a holistic service, where she believes that good skin care plus good nutrition equals good makeup.

Why we partner

When Jessica Mitchell began Dare to be Unforgettable she offered makeup in order to serve clients who needed both hair and makeup services for their event. When she met Finn she realized that Finn’s passion for Makeup was the same passion that Jessica had for hair. It became undeniable that in order to offer the very best to clients the team needed to be comprised of artists equally passionate about their areas of expertise.
