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!

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 😊😘

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™₯️

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

Rebecca's Fall 2017 Bridal Trial

Another fall wedding, oh how I love the fall! πŸπŸŽƒ Rebecca was looking for hair styling for her September 16th wedding. I have to tell you, there must be something really special about September 16th. I got 5 or 6 Wedding inquiries just for that date!  

Rebecca and her fiancΓ© are getting married at the Ocean Club in East Atlantic Beach, where her fiancΓ© has fond memories of spending time with his family there growing up. They're going for a bohemian vibe, can't wait to see it! Christina did a beautiful half up half down style with curls for Rebecca. Christina is excited to be joining Rebecca and her bridesmaids for her big day!

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!

Marin's Bridal Trial

It was so great to finally meet Marin last Friday at her bridal trial. We had been chatting a few months prior to meeting about our upcoming trial. Marin lives 5 hours away in Ithaca and was planning a trip to Long Island where she could come for her makeup and hair trials. Marin, another self-proclaimed crazy cat lady (like myself) was so easy to get along with. She wanted a bold lip (which I was all about!) and we determined that this shade of Bobbi Brown's Red was bomb on her. We did a more natural eye to compliment the boldness of the lip color. Ladies, never fear the bold lip! Remember that at your wedding you're the star and there's nothing wrong with looking the part. Red is so classic too and will never go out of style πŸ’‹ I am excited that Marin asked Rebelle With a Gloss to join her on her September wedding day! 🌼🌻

Stephanie M's Wedding Day

It was such a pleasure doing Stephanie's makeup for her big day. I met Stephanie at my friend Corinne's bachelorette party (she's her aunt). Stephanie and her sisters were a blast to hang out with at the party and we had a lot of fun together. After I did Corinne's makeup for her wedding, Stephanie reached out and asked if I would do her makeup for her wedding as well. I was honored! I had a lovely time in the morning hanging out with her, her daughters (who I also adore), her niece Jessica, and her cute dogs. I was so happy to do Jessica's makeup again! She is such a total sweetheart and really cool to talk to and spend time with.  Congratulations Stephanie! I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon (super jealous bc she's on a beach right now!) β˜€οΈπŸŒŠ

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!
