“Anabelle is an absolute delight to work with. I first met Anabelle when she worked at my older sister’s wedding in September 2016. She did both mine, my sister, my mother, and my grandmother’s makeup flawlessly. We were all so happy with the way we looked that we hired Anabelle to do my wedding in December 2016.

Anabelle is an excellent listener and is able to capture the look you have in mind almost instantly. She uses high-quality makeup that lasts HOURS! My makeup held up from 11 am through midnight! She is very good at receiving feedback and adjusting your look. She is very accessible making booking a trial before your big event easy. She even takes photos of your makeup to ensure it will photograph well (in addition to looking amazing in person).

She is very easy to be around adding a relaxing vibe to whatever atmosphere she is working in. Her work is very classy, timeless, and professional. She is excellent for all generations. I highly recommend her!”

“Anabelle is an incredible makeup artist! She had previously done my makeup at my sister’s wedding and had done such an incredible job that I decided to hire her for my own wedding. She did the makeup for both myself and my bridal party.

The entire process was completely seamless – from the electronic contract to her being able to travel to me for my makeup trial. She listened to what I wanted and made me feel very comfortable.

Everyone looked stunning and I have received so many compliments on my makeup! I would definitely recommend Anabelle for your next event!

“Anabelle was responsive via email leading up to the wedding, extremely reliable she was ON TIME the day of the wedding. She eased any nerves I had both before and day of the wedding and last but certainly not least she is extremely talented and listens to her clients to find out exactly what you want before beginning. I loved my trial and loved my makeup the day of my wedding and so did my entire bridal party!”

“I can’t say enough good things about Anabelle. Choosing a makeup artist was the hardest thing for me because I am so particular and I almost never like my makeup when I get it done. Anabelle was extremely attentive to what I wanted and she was determined to make me happy. She was in touch in the months leading up to my wedding with skincare tips and general advice.

She was extremely professional and her efficiency guaranteed all of the girls got ready in plenty of time, so I never had to worry about being late. Everyone looked like the most beautiful version of themselves. And did I mention she was a sweetheart? So kind and pleasant, making the glam time super enjoyable.

She even offered to walk my dog while we were at the church! And she was there ready for touch-ups when we returned for the reception. Anabelle was recommended to me by another makeup professional and I feel compelled to pay it forward because she really is such a gem.”

“I couldn’t have made a better decision in deciding to hire Anabelle to do my makeup for my wedding day. First, Anabelle is extremely responsive and organized. She is a pro at setting up the day’s schedule and is so fast with all emails. She really makes you feel confident in the months leading up to the wedding that she knows exactly what she is doing. Second, what an amazing person. Anabelle keeps you calm throughout the day and feels like a trusted friend. And lastly, and most importantly, she is amazing at what she does.

She and her additional artist made me, my bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother-in-law look absolutely FLAWLESS. Everyone looked like the most beautiful versions of themselves. And our makeup lasted well into the night. Anabelle stayed with us throughout pictures and through to the end of the ceremony – that could not have been a better decision. She makes you feel confident while taking pictures and she really allows you to relax. Book Anabelle (and book her early – her weekends fill up fast) – you will not regret it!!!”

“Anabelle was super organized and did a wonderful job catering to the different needs of my wedding party. Everyone looked beautiful – like the best version of themselves (not too done up). I LOVED my makeup and was so grateful that the whole process was so seamless.”

“Hiring Anabelle for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made while wedding planning (and anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows just how many decisions need to be made)! A friend of mine who got married before me recommended that I reach out to Anabelle to see if she was free on my wedding date to do makeup for myself and my bridal party and luckily she was free.

As soon as I reached out to Anabelle and got a response I knew she would be great to work with. She is always prompt in her responses, and extremely kind. We set up a time to do a makeup trial. I wasn’t sure what to expect when Anabelle came to my apartment to do the trial, but she was extremely patient, went through several different options with me, and worked to find the perfect makeup look for me that I would be comfortable with on my wedding date. I ended up booking Anabelle to do my makeup, my mom’s makeup, my mother-in-law’s makeup, and 4 bridesmaids. She was amazing on the day of the wedding! Not only did she do an incredible job on everyone’s makeup, but she was a true friend and confidant.

“Simply put- Anabelle is the best you can get for makeup. From start to finish, she was on top of it all. Anabelle offered clear and excellent packages, answered emails immediately, and was there to help in any way she could. She came for two trials, one of which I used for my bridal shower- compliments galore!!!

Anabelle also helped me create a timeline for the morning so that hair and makeup were done without a worry. She and Hope (her 2nd artist) are great artists, and great listeners as well. I felt so comfortable telling her what I wanted, and what I liked or didn’t like so that on the big day everything was perfect!!

SHE STAYED ALL THROUGH PICTURES AND AFTER THE CEREMONY! I got married in July, so as I sweat and smiled, Anabelle was right behind the camera ready to reapply. After I bawled my eyes out after the ceremony, she freshened me up before heading home- I mean does it get any better than that?! ALSO- her airbrush foundation and false eyelashes are EVERYTHING. I was a celebrity and loved every second of it. If there were 6 stars, Anabelle would get them all!

“Anabelle was beyond amazing to work with. It’s hard to find a person who is not just professional but is also pleasant to be around on the most important day of your life. Anabelle was all of that and more. She listened and worked with me on makeup ideas and everything came out perfect!

And brides remember, it’s fine to know what you want but you gotta listen to your makeup artist’s opinion. I listened to Anabelle and my makeup stayed flawless all day long! Besides the wedding ceremony and reception, we had a 2.5-hour photoshoot in the park, in 86 degree weather!

“Anabelle is an amazing choice – from the trial to the wedding day I could not be more pleased. She was extremely flexible and responsive to my schedule as well as my mother’s when my makeup trial was scheduled for the Saturday that snowstorm Juno hit New York City. Her flexibility and ability to fit me in at such short notice was exceptional.

She was very professional at the trial and we took several pictures to remember the look for the wedding. We discussed one change of a more neutral, earthy hue rather than a pink hue on the eyes. And when the wedding day came, WOW! The eyes were absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t have been happier. The makeup was so natural, light, and of course, stunning. I bought the lip color to reapply throughout the day and I also got quite a bit of use out of it on my honeymoon.

The makeup held up in the heat of our summer outdoor wedding and people kept asking me how my makeup was lasting! Anabelle’s team was very professional. Anabelle, and two others, completed makeup for mom, aunt, 6 bridesmaids, a flower girl, and myself in 2 hours and ran perfectly on time. Anabelle was a pleasure to work with and will be an excellent choice.”

“I cannot say enough about Anabelle. She is truly AMAZING and made all my makeup dreams come true! From the first time I met Anabelle, she was extremely professional and easy to work with. She made me feel extremely comfortable and listened to exactly what I wanted to be done. I also LOVE the way my makeup looks in all of my wedding pictures. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a talented, caring, and trustworthy makeup artist!”

“I can’t say enough good things about Anabelle. She not only made me feel beautiful, but she also kept me calm and comfortable throughout the entire day. Anabelle always shows up early, is entirely responsive to your asks, and doesn’t at all shy away from changes. Her talent and demeanor are everything you’d want on your wedding day and any event that matters to you.
