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’—

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 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!

Stephanie's Airbrush Makeup Trial for her Spring 2018 Wedding 🌷🌸

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 πŸ˜‚ 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!

Michele and Sophia - Sophia's Communion

Christina was slammed with Communions this past Saturday. But when Michele inquired about getting her daughter Sophia's hair done and Michele's makeup done, Christina was sweet enough to offer them an extra early 6:30 AM appointment! Michele gladly accepted and I met them at Christina's home hair salon and got to work! Michele wanted a natural look for her makeup. She was so sweet and easy going. A perfect combination for 6:30 AM, hehe! She wanted Sophia's hair up in a bun, complete with a beautiful tiara that Sophia picked out on her own. So adorable! πŸŽ€πŸ‘‘

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.

Harpreet's Sweet & Simple Courthouse Wedding 🌷

Harpreet and her fiancΓ© were getting married  at the Queens Borough Hall on a Friday morning. Just them, their parents, their siblings, and their super close friends. Laura and I arrived at Harpreet's in Kew Gardens around 7AM and spent time chatting with Harpreet and her mom while we dolled up Harpreet for her special day. She and her fiancΓ© were having a civil ceremony in the morning and then exactly 6 months later in October they're having a reception as well. It was a pleasure meeting Harpreet and her mother! Isn't this lip color amazing on her by the way?!

Newborn Shoot - Makeup for Mommies

I met newborn photographer Stephanie and she asked if one of my hair and makeup teams could come to her studio a couple weeks ago. Laura and I went over to do hair and makeup for the mother, Araji. I thought the concept was such a nice idea. Since the mom and dad were going to be in the photos, the idea is that the mom gets pampered with hair and makeup beforehand. I'm sure after weeks of no sleep and lots of new baby experiences it felt great to be pampered. Loved the idea! Don't worry, there's a TV for the dads to relax too as well lol! Araji wanted something very natural for her photos with her new daughter. If you know anyone who's doing a newborn shoot that doesn't offer this type of pampering, let me know and I'll be happy to do it beforehand!

Lauren's Wedding in North Carolina! β˜€οΈ

This is a special #tbt as this wedding was so special and near and dear to my heart. Lauren is my husband's cousin but has also been one of my closest friend for many years! When my husband and I were just friends, Lauren was the one who said to me "you know he's in love with you right?!" Lauren and I have had so many good and funny memories together over the years and I was honored when she asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding! Not only was I a bridesmaid but I had the pleasure of doing Lauren and her mom's makeup for her big day. We flew down to NC from NY with a bunch of family members (im fairly certain we took up the entire plane!) to celebrate Lauren and Matt's special day. It was one of the most fun weddings I've ever been to!

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!

Jamie's Sweet 16 Trial

I met Jamie on Saturday and we did a Sweet 16 trial for her upcoming party. It was so great meeting her. She's also a huge fan of makeup so it was fun discussing the different types of makeup we liked. She also goes to the high school I went to so it was cool hearing about all the new things going on there and which teachers are still kicking! She's on cheerleading just like I used to be. Apparently we have a lot in common but she's cooler and sweeter than I was when I was 16!

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?

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!

Christian Louboutin's New Lipstick ~ Makeup or Breakup?

Happy New Year Ladies and Gents! It's been a while since I added any posts. I took the blog section away for a bit but I'm bringing it back! In the New Year I would like to take time to blog more, amongst other things. What's everyone's resolutions this year?

What did you do for New Year's Eve this year? I was at a family party and we played a dice game called Bunco. It was pretty cool. Yours truly won one of the prizes and earned $25 - watch out now! ;)

For my New Year's makeup look I wanted to center it around the most fabulous lipstick I received for Christmas. Christian Louboutin's Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour. Look how gorgeous this thing is. The packaging is amazing. The color I got was the classic red bottom color Rouge Louboutin. So gorgeous and classic.

Now, because it's Christian Louboutin I held it to high expectations. I will say though although it's not advertised to be a lipstick with staying power, it lasted on me all night. I only retouched once and I didn't really even need to. With me, that's important in a lipstick. The other important aspect is smudging. I absolutely HATE when I buy a lipstick and it smears all over my face. What's the point? This lipstick did not smudge and I was very happy about it. The only thing that I think would hold someone back from purchasing this lipstick is the price. It costs $90, yeah I know. That's a lot of money for a lipstick. But it's Christian Louboutin and that comes with the territory. If you're a lipstick enthusiast, you love Christian Louboutin, and you can afford your bills this month, then I say go for it! It's definitely a good luxury lipstick. It's a definite MAKEUP for me.

Did you do your makeup all fun for New Year's? I would love to see pics or hear deets in the comments section below! Happy New Year, everyone!

Yuri's Baby Shower

Amanda Marie, one of Rebelle With a Gloss' makeup artists, did Yuri's makeup for her baby shower this past Saturday. Yuri's mother-in-law loved how beautiful Yuri's makeup turned out that she asked Amanda Marie do hers as well! Although Yuri is glowing, you can't even tell she's pregnant in this pic! 😘 Sooo pretty!

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!
