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!

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?!!

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 😊😘

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.

Mani Monday! Valentine's Day Sparkly Red Coffin NailsπŸ’…πŸ»

As I've been told, "coffin" nails sounds kind of creepy. OK. I understand that. I guess having grey/ mauve coffin nails last time didn't really help my case. But I love them anyway, they're AMAZE. The coffin nail shape gives my red nails a little edge and look super cool. What's everyone else rockin today for Mani Monday? Please comment or post a pic below! xo

Here's a chart showing the different nail shapes:

Meeting Chris Brown & Trey Songz!

I did the lovely Kesi's makeup for her prom a few years ago, and I was so excited when she texted me to do her makeup for this exciting event!

IMG_6831.JPG

Kesi is a huge music fan and loves going to concerts.  Her Mom bought her an amazing gift for Christmas... tickets to the Chris Brown & Trey Songz Between the Sheets tour! Not just that, but also tickets for a Meet and Greet package to meet Chris Brown and Trey! She was so excited to be able to meet one of her favorite entertainers! She immediately texted me asking if I would be able to do her makeup, to make the day even more special. I was super excited to see her again and luckily had the day open!

When I saw her again, she was as sweet as ever. Her 10 year old niece was hanging out with us and was extremely adorable. She loved watching me do Kesi's makeup while she sang and danced to Michael Jackson, who is her favorite entertainer.  She looks up to Kesi it's so cute. I do have to say she was the most fabulous 10 year old I ever met! 

For this event, Kesi wanted a very sexy modern look. Lips, eyes, lashes...she wanted it all & she rocked it!

Look at those gorgeous lips! Kylie Jenner step aside!

Kesi wanted to do a silly photo for her meet and greet with Chris Brown and Trey Songz. Kesi is such a fun and confident girl & I loved seeing her again.

                         Kesi, if you marry either one of them I'll do your makeup for your wedding!! ;) Just saying...
