[Northampton, MA] – January 9, 2013 – Local makeup artist Liz Washer is pleased to announce that her wedding business, Makeup Artistry by Liz, has won the prestigious WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2013 in the Beauty & Health category.

The esteemed annual awards program recognizes the top 5% of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.
