She is available for professional makeup services for all of your special occasions. In her own words: " As a Professional Makeup Artist my goal is to provide you with the best service for your special day. I provide services throughout most of New Jersey and Staten Island.I offer a wide range of make up services, please see my services page Every woman I have ever talked to has had a bad experience with makeup-whether your mother convinced you to let her do your makeup for the prom or the "makeup artist" at the “XYZ Cosmetics” counter in the department store ambushed you into a makeover.
I remember mine--I was 19 and one of the ladies at one of the better known cosmetic counters convinced me to “fill in my eyebrows….a little.” I was wary, but I let her do it. Five minutes later she stood back and admired her work as she proudly handed me the mirror. I was shocked and horrified to see Bert from Sesame Street staring back at me.
When I started doing makeup professionally I made a promise to myself to never let anyone leave my chair feeling like they needed to make a beeline to the nearest sink to get it all off. I make sure that before the brush touches your face that I know exactly what you want. I know because I listen to you; (Radical idea, I know) and if there is something that you want to change, I am happy to do it because it’s your face and your day; you know what you are comfortable with. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how great I thought you looked-you had to feel great about it.
My goal is to make you feel lovely, and happy you decided to get your makeup done. So….I’ve gone on and on, but I hope you’ve gotten a feel for what’s important to me. I look forward to working with you."
