Maxine's Graduation Events

Maxine's mother called me for Maxine's hair and makeup for both her elementary school graduation as well as a dance she was having the following week as part of the graduation celebrations. Laura did Maxine's hair and I did her makeup for both events. We loved Maxine! She is such a sweet girl and she was so fun to chat with. We actually loved her whole family as they're such nice, good people. By the way, Maxine is also SUPER smart and got a scholarship to a fancy school in NYC for next year. Congratulations Maxine! 

For Maxine's makeup we did partial services the first time for graduation (just eyes) and then full services for the dance (face too) without fake lashes. Can you see the difference? 💗

Airbrush for Patricia's Engagement Party 💍

Patricia originally found me on Wedding Wire and we chatted through there. But then, her sister recommended she reach out to someone who did a friend's wedding 5 years ago. That someone ended up being me, too, lol! So I suppose we were meant to meet!

I airbrushed Patricia, her mother, and her sister for Patricia's engagement party at Pompeii Restaurant. She and her sister had gotten airbrush before, but they were apprehensive because they said it made them look very pale. If you've also had this experience, it's likely the makeup artist you used may have used a color that didn't match your skin tone. Or, used a reflective powder over it. They were so happy with the airbrush results. I loved meeting all 3 of them, they were so hospitable and sweet! Congratulations, Patricia! 💍

Patricia, the bride to be!

Tish's Baby Shower 💙👶

The day I did Tish's makeup was a super busy day for me. I had 3 different appointments to travel to with 6 different people. Thankfully, Tish started out my day. She was so cool to talk to. She was funny and super chill. Her daughter was so funny and sassy and kept us entertained until it was time for mommy to have her time to relax and get her makeup done. Tish said from the very beginning she didn't want her makeup feeling heavy on the skin. Airbrush is perfect for that, as it is intended to feel super light on the skin. I had such a great time with Tish & loved glamming her up for her baby shower. She definitely made the kickoff to a busy day very relaxing and fun!

Anna's Daughter's Baptism

New Mom Anna wanted to look and feel extra special for her daughter's baptism. She and her husband were throwing a party for their new baby girl after the baptism. Since this is such a special memory for them and their families, they hired a photographer and wanted to treasure these photos forever. That's where we come in! We love helping people feel special on days that are so important to them. Anna was such a breath of fresh air. She just had her first child a few months ago and, first, looks amazing. Second, and more importantly, she is the sweetest person ever! Laura and I loved chatting with her and spending time with her. As a mom-to-be, Anna was giving me great advice. She's so calm and grounded which gives me hope that I can be, too lol! Congratulations Anna & family!

Stephanie M's Wedding Day

It was such a pleasure doing Stephanie's makeup for her big day. I met Stephanie at my friend Corinne's bachelorette party (she's her aunt). Stephanie and her sisters were a blast to hang out with at the party and we had a lot of fun together. After I did Corinne's makeup for her wedding, Stephanie reached out and asked if I would do her makeup for her wedding as well. I was honored! I had a lovely time in the morning hanging out with her, her daughters (who I also adore), her niece Jessica, and her cute dogs. I was so happy to do Jessica's makeup again! She is such a total sweetheart and really cool to talk to and spend time with.  Congratulations Stephanie! I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon (super jealous bc she's on a beach right now!) ☀️🌊

Marilin's Bridal Trial

It was great meeting Marilin and chatting with her about her upcoming wedding. She's not getting married for another year-plus but I always say it's great getting things done earlier than later for your wedding. When I was getting married my husband and I tried to get as much done as early as possible too, so I can certainly relate. We were discussing her June 2018 wedding and once again I was dreaming about the summer, especially with this storm that's coming tomorrow. I miss the sun and the warm weather. 

Marilin had a couple previous trials that she was unhappy with. So we went slowly step by step so we can achieve her perfect look for her. I was SO happy because she was so happy with the results! What do you think of Marilin's makeup?!

Laura C.'s Bridal Trial

Laura and I had our trial scheduled for months before meeting. When Laura walked in and we got to chatting I knew right away we would totally click. She is just so nice and we got along so well. My kitten even loved her! Lol! She was easy going but decisive, which I totally appreciate. It always makes my day when potential clients are the nicest people ever. The look Laura was going for was some drama in the eyes. We complimented the eyes with a brightening lip color. She looked super gorge and I'm honored to be joining her on her wedding day! What do you think of Laura's Trial?

Lauren's Prom Trial

Lauren was such a blast to work with. She was doing a prom makeup and hair trial with Christina and I. She told me she hadn't had the best experience with makeup artists before, so I made it my mission to make sure she felt fabulous. She showed me a picture and step by step I showed her different eyeshadow combinations until we found something she really loved. She wasn't shy with contouring so we had some fun with that. The false eyelashes pulled the whole look together and we both loved the way everything turned out. Christina did an Ah-maaazing job with her hair. I wish my hair looked like that every day😍

We're super excited to be doing her makeup for her prom in June! It's not too early to schedule prom trials so make sure to make an appointment sooner than later as we are booking up! We are currently almost booked solid for Merrick's June 22nd prom. Text or email me for more info regarding trials and prom bookings. 

Erica and Hailey's Natural Looks for a Bat Mitzvah

Erica and her daughter Hailey were so easy going and sweet. They were going to a Bat Mitzvah that evening and wanted to get their hair and makeup done. Erica mentioned that she doesn't typically wear makeup on a daily basis so she wanted something more on the natural end. Since her daughter Hailey is only 11, I wanted to respect her age but still have her feel beautiful and "made up". Christina did a great job with their hair. They were so lovely and I had such a nice time with them!

Katie's Bridal Shower

On Sunday we dolled Katie up for her bridal shower. One of RWAG's freelance hairstylists, Christina, curled Katie's pretty blonde hair down into beautiful waves. For makeup, Katie wanted flawless skin and for her eyes to pop without the look seeming super dramatic. Katie was so cool to hang out with. Both Christina and I loved working with her. Congratulations Katie!
