Looking for Makeup Artist for Central NJ Wedding---Glamour!

Hi there, Kiss

I'm hoping to find a makeup artist who will be available for my central NJ wedding.  I'm very good at doing my own, but would like it professionally done for my special day--that way, I won't have to have another thing to stress about! Wink

I'm not into the "natural bride" look and am into a glam look a la RuPaul---I think his makeup is fantastic!  To that end, I'm searching for a makeup artist who understands light and shadow a la Kevyn Aucoin, Troy Jensen, Scott Barnes, etc.

If anyone has some suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

    I think this is the first time that I've ever actually heard a bride admit that she really wants to look like a drag queen?

    Maybe Alexa from Glam Fairies?  Her makeup is pretty heavy-handed.

    Definitely would NOT go the Glam Fairy (Alexa) route...she's over priced and she's completely rude...read like 5 words on her website and you'll see what I mean.

    I think a good make-up artist can give you Glam if that's what you want, so long as you direct them.  Most of them hype up the 'natural look' stuff b/c I think that's what most brides are looking for, def wouldn't take that as they're not capable if you want to be really done up

    Thank you all for your feedback!Laughing
    Nope, not a joke in the least.  I think RuPaul's makeup is GORGEOUS! Kiss

    Yes, I looked at the Glam Fairy's site and the show....not my cup of tea. Kiss

    Best wishes & thanks to all!  Keep the suggestions coming! Wink
