Makeup by Sophia

Hello, beautiful brides-to-be, and congratulations!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page! My name is Sophia and I was born and raised on Long Island. My journey in the makeup industry started in 2007, when the regional manager of M.A.C Cosmetics approached me at a MAC counter in Huntington Long Island and offered me a job. Now, 17 years later, I am still in the same profession and loving every minute of it.

I created my website a few years ago and have received over 44 five-star reviews, for which I am extremely grateful. I enjoy meeting new clients and socializing with them. We always have a great time and share some laughs. My clients often describe me as a down-to-earth person.

"I absolutely love seeing the look on my clients' faces after I finish their makeup. It's the reason why I do what I do! It's also great to hear from my brides that their makeup and lashes lasted all night long. Whether they're looking for a soft glam or full glam look, I always strive to understand their needs. I've been complimented on my gentle touch, which is especially important considering how nervous some brides can be. I know that some of my clients don't typically wear a lot of makeup, but on their wedding day, they want to feel beautiful both inside and out. In addition to traditional makeup applications, I am also experienced in airbrush techniques for those humid days."

My motto is to enter as strangers and leave like friends.I am grateful for the many people I have met, and I cherish being a part of their significant moments and memories.

"Hopefully, you will consider me for your wedding day glam:)

The Wedding Industry

I always feel excited when working with my clients! Helping them look gorgeous on their special day is one of the reasons I love my job. The feeling of delight I experience after finishing a bride's makeup and seeing the smile on their face as they look into the mirror is why I do what I do. :)


The Wedding Memories

"I have witnessed countless beautiful memories from the weddings of all the brides I have worked with. It's difficult to pick just one favorite memory. However, there were some special moments when the groom or the bridesmaids would give the bride a heartfelt gift accompanied by a letter. These moments always bring tears to my eyes and are the ones I cherish the most."



Traditional Makeup Application

For some people, traditional makeup is their bread and butter. This common makeup application is what many women put on every day. Traditional makeup encompasses cream, liquid, or powder foundation. You can apply a wider variety of textures, levels, and shades of coverage with makeup brushes, sponges, or beauty blenders. Depending on the formula, finishes can appear natural, dewy, or matte.

In terms of wedding makeup, Depending on the clients skin texture is when I would determine which is best for. Due to its thicker consistency, traditional makeup may need occasional touch-ups. Before deciding on this look, brides should know that traditional makeup is not waterproof and can leave an undesired cakey look if not applied skillfully with professional products. Some foundation that I use at the moment are Armani luminous foundation, Nars foundation, dior forever foundation, Shiseido foundation and mac. 

I Also specialize in Airbrush Makeup Application which is basically bulletproof.

The main difference between traditional and airbrush makeup lies in their formulations. As the name suggests, people don’t apply airbrush makeup with traditional hand tools ( although there are some brands that you can use a sponge Era Beauty) Instead, this type of foundation uses a specially-designed airbrush gun and makeup air compressor that sprays the face with a lightweight mist. Experienced makeup artists apply the customized foundation in thin, even layers to create either a flawless matte or radiant finish.

Compared to traditional makeup, a natural airbrushed look is more weatherproof, sweatproof, and waterproof. This long-lasting technique is best for oily skin vs dry. Be aware that uniform airbrush makeup can sit differently on mature skin. The lighter coverage is a fun, extended-wear option for specific skin types but may not stand as strongly against imperfections or impromptu breakouts. On mature skin you have to use very sparingly around fine lines or it can settle.


Company History

 "I started my company in 2013 after working for MAC for several years. Initially, I worked part-time for MAC and after a year into my job, I received my first bridal party. Despite my part-time job, I was able to focus on my side business and grow it to what it is now.


As my side business grew busier and busier, I decided to devote all my attention solely to it. I am immensely grateful to have an incredible team who are always punctual, reliable, and responsible.


Today, I am fortunate to make a living by doing what I love."

Will they make-up last all day?

There are so many steps during the makeup application that keeps the makeup lasting all day. Most people do tend to get oily in the T zone which I always try to give my Brides a little touch-up kit. 

Do you have assistants to help with large bridal parties? yes I have a team which accompanies me.

What's the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?

The airbrush I use contains natural ingredients and is sweat, tear and waterproof. Some brands are transfer-proof.


Traditional makeup can give your skin a beautiful look, but it is not resistant to water or transfer.

Personal Hobbies

As an Italian, I take pride in my cooking skills. I absolutely love trying out new recipes and techniques. Lately, I've been experimenting with making sushi rolls, and I must say, it's been a great success!


Besides cooking, I am also quite crafty lol and enjoy decorating my home as well as creating handmade wreaths for my front door. I am a big fan of the Peloton bike and love working out on it. Additionally, I enjoy practicing Pilates.
