Introduction

Hello beautiful brides to be and congratulations!

Thank you so much for visiting my page! My name is Sophia I am born and raised on Long Island. I started my journey doing makeup back in 2007 when the regional manager of M.A.C Cosmetics approached me at a Mac counter and asked me if I would like a job, well 17 years later here I am. 

I built my website a few years ago and have over 40 - 5* REVIEWS which I am so grateful for.

I Always love hearing from my brides that their make up and lashes lasted all through the night!  I specialize in airbrush and traditional make up application.

My motto is enter as strangers and leave like friends. I have met so many people, and I love to be a part of there milestones and memories.

The Wedding Industry

It's Always Exciting!!

To make my clients feel gorgeous on one of the most special milestones in there life is one of the reasons the next is the delight you experience when you finish doing a brides makeup and the look they have, when they look in the mirror is why I love what I do.

 

The Wedding Memories

There are so many wonderful wedding memories from each and every one of my brides that it would be hard to say. 

There were a few instances, when the groom or the bridesmaids would give the bride a special gift accompanied by a letter, which usually always brings tears to my eyes I would have to say those are the moments I love.

Specialization

 

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.

 

FAQs

How do I make an appointment?

you can visit my website and there's a submission form.

Will they make up last all day?

There are so many steps during the make up application which keeps the make up 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 service large bridal parties?

Yes I do! I have a team that will accompany me on your big day and help with your bridal party.

What's the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?

The Airbrush that I use is made up of all different types of natural ingredients and are excellent for your skin. It is also sweat proof, Tear proof and waterproof, some brands are transfer proof.

 

Traditional make up is also beautiful on the skin but is not waterproof or transfer proof.

Personal Hobbies

I own a peloton bike which I'm obsessed with. I also love Pilates!  

I'm Italian and that being said, I love love to cook! I love trying out new recipes, making sushi rolls is one of my newest endeavors.  

Another hobby I have is decorating my home and making handmade wreaths for my front door.
