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? πŸ’—

Airbrush for Patricia's Engagement Party πŸ’

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! πŸ’

Patricia, the bride to be!Β

Tish's Baby Shower πŸ’™πŸ‘Ά

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!

Christina's Hair Trial for her October Wedding πŸπŸ‚

Christina did a hair trial with Christina several weeks ago for her October wedding. She's getting married at Chateau Le Mer on October 8th. Christina said that Christina (haha, confusing much?) was such a relaxed and sweet bride to be and she enjoyed their trial so much! She will happily be joining her on her big day for the bride and her 5 bridesmaids! I'm sorry but how gorgeous is her hair here?!!

Gannon's Makeup for a Wedding

The second I left Gannon's home I was calling Laura to talk about how awesome Gannon was. Laura did Gannon's blowout and I came to set up towards the end of it. She and her family were SO sweet. Her daughter was super sassy and cracking me up left and right! For her friend of the family's wedding, Gannon wanted to look like herself with a bit of glam which I love to do because I love to enhance natural beauty! Both Laura and I had such a great time dolling Gannon up. She was so kind, funny, generous, and laid back. Needless to say, it was our pleasure!

Cathy D.'s May Wedding 🌷

I met Cathy through my old high school friend Michelle. Her dad was getting remarried to a lovely woman named Cathy.  Michelle reached out for the family asking if I Christina and I were available, & we were! We had a great time and lots of laughs meeting Michelle and Cathy's family and dolling them up for the wedding!

Melissa's Makeup for her Baby Shower πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ’™

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 😊😘

Boston Rebelle Marni's Makeup & Hair Trials

Marni contacted me for hair and makeup for her late August wedding. She's from NY but currently lives in Boston (how I love Boston!). I personally am not free for her wedding as it's too close to my due date so I connected her with Diana, an amazing makeup artist (and an all around wonderful person and friend!). I coordinated with Marni, Diana, and Christina for Marni's trial so we could make Marni's trip from Boston to NY for her trials as easy as possible. She also was trying to get some engagement photos afterwards so the girls took Marni early to doll her up and get her ready for them. The photographer is going to send those to me so I can't wait to share the after photos of both hair and makeup. Christina and Diana are excited to join Marni for her summer wedding!β˜€οΈ

Mariangela's Bridal Trial

We're booking up fast for fall weddings so make sure to book your trials sooner than later! πŸπŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ

Bride-to-be Mariangela wanted a very natural look for her bridal trial for her wedding in October. We did something super natural without even incorporating lashes (which can still help with a natural look, but Mariangela preferred no lashes).  Christina did a beautiful low-do on Mariangela like she requested. Mariangela was so down to earth and sweet, Christina and I loved meeting her and doing her trials for the wedding she was attending that evening.

Twinning Spring Bridesmaids Nadia & Kamla 🌸🌷

This #tbt post is about Nadia and Kamla, who reached out to me last year because they were bridesmaids in their friend's wedding and wanted their hair and makeup done prior to the wedding. Since their friend was having an Indian wedding, they had already been celebrating for days. This was Day 3 of the celebration!

The wedding was a year ago this week, so Nadia's spring allergies were really bothering her. Good thing most of my products are waterproof and skin sensitive! She told me later everything felt great and stayed on nicely  which I was so happy about! Nadia went for a beautiful, classic natural look while Kamla went for a sexy red lip and glam eyes. Kamla and I went back and forth through emails discussing great red options and she picked a gorgeous color! I always tell clients if they're going to go for a bold lip color it's smart to purchase one to reapply throughout the day. These best friends wanted to do a "twinning hairstyle" which was so sweet! They brought Laura a picture of the look they wanted and Laura recreated it beautifully. Laura and I LOVED Nadia and Kamla and we truly felt like we made friends that day. πŸ‘―πŸ‘―

Amanda's Wedding

#tbt to Amanda's September Wedding!πŸ‚πŸŒ»β˜€οΈ All of our brides are memorable, but Amanda was so memorable for Christina. Amanda was so kind from the beginning all the way up to the end. The funny thing is that I never met her in person because she only booked hair services, but she was always so sweet and easy going when we spoke. Christina did Amanda and 5 of her bridesmaids' hair. Christina was on cloud 9 when she left, texting me about how sweet and fun all the girls were. She had such an amazing time with them and I was happy she had such a great experience. What do you think of Amanda and her bridesmaids' hair?!

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!

Jill & Lillie Treat Themselves πŸ’„πŸ’‹

I did Jill & her daughter Lillie's makeup for a bat mitzvah they were attending a couple weeks ago. They were both excited to get to spend time with their friends at the celebration. A hardworking Mom, Jill wanted to treat herself and her daughter to getting their makeup done together. Jill was so funny and personable and kept me laughing. Lillie was so cool and sweet and fun to talk to. (& by the way, her skin is so flawless I couldn't get over it. I barely put anything on it.) I had a great time with these beauties!

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?!

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!
