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’

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!

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!

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!

Elena's Makeup for a Friend's Bridal Shower!🌻

Elena is one of my closest friends in the world. Elena connected me with her wonderful work bestie Dayna, who's wedding makeup I'll be doing in July. Elena got a gorgeous dress for Dayna's Bridal Shower and wanted to get her makeup done too. I actually never did her makeup before so I was excited to do it! I was also nervous, does anyone else find it more nerve wracking to do something for friends or family rather than strangers?! Although I sure do, I had fun spending time with and dolling up my beautiful friend! β™₯️

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‘‘

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!

Jackie's Night Out!

I met Jackie through Tara who is a fabulous hairstylist. Tara and I met at Stephanie's wedding and I was ecstatic when she asked me to come by to do her client Jackie's makeup for a night out.

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!
