best nyc wedding makeup artist

Anabelle LaGuardia

I am a native New Yorker and have built a career over the past 22 years as a wedding and special event makeup artist.  My passion for makeup started at an early age with my mother as my inspiration.  She had an innate ability in doing her own makeup as well as mine for school dances, proms, and ballet performances.

My very first job as a makeup artist with the Laura Geller Makeup Studio catapulted my career.  Under Laura’s extensive training and mentoring, I ascended the ranks to become one of her most-requested makeup artists for studio clientele, makeup lessons, weddings, and special events. 

I eventually made the career move to branch out on my own. In 2003 I formed my own makeup business, Anabelle LaGuardia Makeup Artistry to provide reliable on-location makeup services to brides and clients in NYC, the Tri-State area, and to destinations beyond. 

I understand women want to look and feel like themselves.  My signature style has always been modern, classic, and elegant.  My brides and clients trust and invest in me knowing I will help them bring out an elevated, modern, and timeless version of themself.  My passion is connecting with women to help them look and feel radiant and special no matter what the occasion.

In my free time, I love to watch anything on the Bravo and ID networks. I love to paint, drink wine, shop, travel and try new restaurants.  I appreciate beauty, fashion, and art.  I live with my husband, Chris, and four cats, Baylee, Pixie, Colby, and Roxie.  I love dogs!  I love animals!  The beach is my forever happy place.  Spring and summer are my favorite seasons!
