So much goes into planning how you how you want to look on your wedding day. Finding the perfect dress and the right hair style are just part of the equation. Having the correct makeup application is also very important. The right shades, finishes and techniques are what go together to create a superb wedding-day look, whether it's natural, romantic and soft, or dramatic.
I offer both airbrushing and traditional makeup applications, and will travel to your wedding site to ensure a flawless look just before you walk down the aisle that will keep you radiant and picture perfect from the first kiss to the last dance! This is the one day when everyone’s eyes are sure to be on you and these are the pictures you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
I always recommend scheduling a trial before the wedding to ensure that together we achieve your vision on your big day!
What to expect from your makeup trial?
Your makeup trial is your chance to find the look you adore, which will be immortalized in your wedding photographs to cherish for a lifetime! The trial gives you a sense of how we will apply your makeup on your wedding day. This is when we decide on the look that you feel the most comfortable with and reflects who you are as a person.
Here are a few things you should know about your makeup trial process. Understanding what to expect and how to prepare will help to make it as effective as possible.
Before your makeup trial:
▪ Know your skin type – Be sure to share what type of skin you have and any other important information about your skin such as allergies or irritants. I will decide what products to use on you based upon this information.
▪ Know your style – Do some research before the trial and print some examples of the styles you like.
▪ Know what you don’t like – Print, or create a Pinterest page with examples of styles you don’t like so I can avoid these looks and better understand your preferences.
During your makeup trial:
▪ As your makeup artist, I will give you advice on what styles suit your personality, style and facial features the best. I might suggest looks that you haven’t yet considered. You shouldn’t feel pressured to follow all of my advice, but while you have my expertise at your fingertips, try to give it your consideration.
▪ I will want to get to know you, listen carefully to your ideas and opinions and respect your vision.
▪ Speak up. If you don’t like something, let me know! I will not be offended. Try to be as specific as possible-is it the blush; is it your lip color? This will help me to know exactly what you want.
▪ Don’t be disappointed if you feel that your look isn’t totally picture perfect. The goal of the trial is to discuss options and arrive at the basic concept of your wedding day look, and it should give you a good idea of what the actual result will be.
After your makeup trial:
▪ Makeup and skin interact with each other in a way that even the most experienced artists cannot always predict, so after the trial, you will need to “live” in the makeup for a bit. If it wears off too quickly, or after wearing it for a while you change your mind about the look, then be sure to communicate this with me. It’s normal for a look to be tweaked a bit based on trial results.
Above all else, don’t forget to have fun. A marriage is a joyous occasion and I believe that the preparations should be too!

Unfortunately, for weddings I cannot hold dates without a signed contract and deposit. If we schedule a trial date and it is a month in advance, I’ll hold your date until I meet with you.

After that time, the wedding date is released for other clients.

Do you have any favorite Photographers?
Yes. Check out the list of links to my photographers below. I highly recommend all the photogs listed, as I have worked with them closely, they are all fantastic.
I believe that makeup is not an accessory, but an art form that is a means of personal expression. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for makeup and I'm equally as passionate about helping people look and feel their best. I strive to make every interaction with my clients and colleagues one of positivity.
Angela's Makeup NY, LLC has been operating since 2013, when I decided to follow my passion for makeup and transform it into a business. Since then, I’ve been helping people be their most beautiful. A few years back, I decided to formally study makeup artistry again, get current with the new trends, and hone my skills. I received a certification in Advanced Makeup Artistry with the New York School of Esthetics and Day Spa. In addition, I have taken workshops with the great Kevin James Bennett, MAC, Temptu, Makeup Forever, and more! One of the most important things I learned as a makeup artist is understanding color theory, and the ability to create the illusion of flawless skin by understanding all skin types and tones.
I am also a singer and I have performed on Broadway, Tours, Regional Theater, Summer Stock, and Symphony Concerts in the USA and Europe. I sing back up for world-renowned performers and have been a member of Broadway Inspirational Voices Gospel Choir for over 18 years. Transforming myself into eclectic characters always sparks my imagination and gives me constant inspiration. As a performer, I know first hand what it takes to be in front of people, or a camera, and the need to look and feel your best.
You can come to me here in Westchester, or I will come to you! Whether you need me in your home, hotel, event space or photographers studio, I can be there. I work closely with photographers to capture the best images of my clients during their special events/photo shoots/weddings to ensure the photographs are pure perfection. My attention to detail, background in the arts and enthusiasm for creating the perfect look comes natural to me in the field of makeup artistry, and I'd like to share it with you!

I used Angela's services for a promotional video shoot, and despite all of the usual hiccups that occur in a shooting with 20 different people involved, Angela was calm and helpful the entire time. We started early and ran late, both of which I still have never heard a word about from Angela. The makeup for all of the actors was perfect, but what she also provided was peace of mind and stability, and that is really why I am happy too unequivocally recommend Angela to the world. Makeup artists are not too hard to find, but people with the work ethic and personality of Angela are incredibly hard to find, in or out of the makeup world. If you are reading this, you should stop and just contact her now - you won't be disappointed.
