Airbrush for Patricia's Engagement Party ๐Ÿ’

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! ๐Ÿ’

 Patricia, the bride to be!ย

Christina's Hair Trial for her October Wedding ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

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?!!

Cathy D.'s May Wedding ๐ŸŒท

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 ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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!

Bridal Trial for Dana's October 2017 Wedding๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

Dana and I had a trial a few weeks ago for her upcoming October wedding. She's getting married the day before my wedding anniversary. So of course I think she picked a fabulous time of the year to get married! ๐Ÿ˜˜ She and her fiancรฉ will be getting married at the Inn at New Hyde Park. I'm so excited to be joining her for her big day!

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!โ˜€๏ธ

Rebecca's Fall 2017 Bridal Trial

Another fall wedding, oh how I love the fall! ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽƒ 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 fiancรฉ are getting married at the Ocean Club in East Atlantic Beach, where her fiancรฉ 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!

Mariangela's Bridal Trial

We're booking up fast for fall weddings so make sure to book your trials sooner than later! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

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 ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท

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. ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿ‘ฏ

Harpreet's Sweet & Simple Courthouse Wedding ๐ŸŒท

Harpreet and her fiancรฉ 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 fiancรฉ 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?!

Lauren's Wedding in North Carolina! โ˜€๏ธ

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!

Amanda's Wedding

#tbt to Amanda's September Wedding!๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒปโ˜€๏ธ 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?!

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!) โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ

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?!

Bonni's Bridal Trial

It was such a pleasure meeting Bonni and her mom at her trial. Bonni is such a sweetheart and her mom was the same. Her mom was the ideal type of person to bring to a trial. I always tell people, try to only bring one person and bring someone who's super supportive and non-judgmental. Someone who is looking for you to be happy as the bride, not someone who just wants to be heard. Her mom was that perfect person to bring. She was really supportive and encouraging. 

When talking to Bonni I realized that one of her bridesmaids was an old friend of mine from middle school that I lost touch with. What a good excuse to message my old friend to say hello!

Bonni was such a wonderful person to get to know and spend time with. I'm super excited that Christina and I will be joining her on her wedding day in July. I'm dreaming about the warm weather already! โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‘™

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?

Corinne's August Wedding

Corinne has been my friend for many years and I was so excited when she asked me to do her makeup for her wedding. It was so much fun because her mom and her bridesmaids are such amazing people. Some of her bridesmaids are also great friends of mine and the rest I've met along the way and really have gotten to know and love! It was great to spend the morning with them and do their makeup on the morning of the wedding!

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!

Getting Shayna Gorge for her Bridal Shower!

Laura and I had a great time with Shayna! Laura did her hair and I did her makeup this beautiful Sunday morningโ˜€๏ธ. She was so funny and we had so much fun glamming her up for her bridal shower today. She looked so beautiful! Her gorgeous eyes popped and her hair looked beyond radiant! We took a short silly "live video" below while Laura was curling her hair. Then her fiancรฉ came by and we took some quick photos. They are so cute together. You can see the glow on her face (partially due to the highlighter lol) but also because she beams around him. Adorable! Have a great shower, Shayna!

 After! Doesn't she look gorgeous!?ย
