Airbrush for Patricia's Engagement Party ๐Ÿ’

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! ๐Ÿ’

Patricia, the bride to be!ย

Tish's Baby Shower ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ถ

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!

Stephanie's Airbrush Makeup Trial for her Spring 2018 Wedding ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ

It was such a pleasure meeting Stephanie and her mother! Christina and Stephanie's mom grew up in neighboring towns from each other and had so many cool things to talk about while Stephanie and I discussed our love for Impractical Jokers ๐Ÿ˜‚ I airbrushed Stephanie instead of using traditional makeup and she looked so flawless and beautiful. We had a great time dolling up Stephanie for her bridal trial & really enjoyed spending time with her and her mom. We are super excited to be joining her next April for her wedding!

Melissa's Makeup for her Baby Shower ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™

I'm sorry but how beautiful is Melissa?! So gorgeous. Melissa contacted me about makeup for her and her mother for her baby shower. Her mom left a little earlier so I didn't get a chance to take a picture of her. Melissa had mentioned that her mother didn't like the look or feel of wearing a ton of makeup so I did a very natural look for her that made her beauty glow. Her mom looked so happy & confident after which made me so happy. With Melissa, she wanted hints of blue incorporated into her eye makeup since she's having a baby boy. If you can tell from the photo, I put a little bit of blue shadow into the creases & used it to line her bottom lid halfway. I thought her idea of incorporating blue into her makeup was so cool and also meaningful. It was so fun to do! I had a great time spending time with Melissa and her mother. Melissa is going to be a first time mom just like me, so it was really nice talking to someone going through a similar experience. Plus she lives literally a block away from where I grew up, so we will have to get together for some decaf coffee soon ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

Bridal Trial for Dana's October 2017 Wedding๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

Dana and I had a trial a few weeks ago for her upcoming October wedding. She's getting married the day before my wedding anniversary. So of course I think she picked a fabulous time of the year to get married! ๐Ÿ˜˜ She and her fiancรฉ will be getting married at the Inn at New Hyde Park. I'm so excited to be joining her for her big day!

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?!

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!

Mani Monday - Jet Setting

Yes, I know it's Tuesday๐Ÿ˜Š

So I'm quite busy over the next few weeks. I just got back from an amazing, fun, and romantic trip with my hubby in Chicago. If you're my Facebook friend, sorry to blow up your news feed๐Ÿ™ˆ  But I wanted to share the great time we had.

I was WAY overdue for a manicure. Like embarrassingly overdue. This Memorial Day Weekend we were in Chicago as I mentioned, this upcoming weekend we are going to my darling friend Darcy's wedding in Bermuda, and the weekend after we are going to celebrate our awesome cousin Jay's 40th birthday in Vegas! So I needed a polish that was fabulous but not too colorful where it would clash with a dress for a wedding.

I was drawn to this clear looking polish with specs of gold. It felt both fabulous for Vegas but classy for my friend's wedding. I also reshaped my coffin nails back to stiletto shape (inspiration from my last client who had awesome nails). You can't really see how they gleam in the photos so check out my like 5 second Instagram vid @rebelle1010. Let me know what you think. Or show me yours! I could use some summer mani-inspiration. 

Getting dolled up for Graduation

Ariana, my beautiful client, graduated from college today and wanted to look extra special and get her hair and makeup done. Congratulations Ariana! Doesn't she look gorge?!!!!!!

Getting Shayna Gorge for her Bridal Shower!

Laura and I had a great time with Shayna! Laura did her hair and I did her makeup this beautiful Sunday morningโ˜€๏ธ. She was so funny and we had so much fun glamming her up for her bridal shower today. She looked so beautiful! Her gorgeous eyes popped and her hair looked beyond radiant! We took a short silly "live video" below while Laura was curling her hair. Then her fiancรฉ came by and we took some quick photos. They are so cute together. You can see the glow on her face (partially due to the highlighter lol) but also because she beams around him. Adorable! Have a great shower, Shayna!

After! Doesn't she look gorgeous!?ย
