One of the best NYC experiences I've had was my makeup lesson with Shara last month. I loved the personalized experience; it's so much better than visiting a makeup counter and hoping for the best. I'm naturally a skeptic, but Shara won

My makeup application was so fabulous last week that I really feel I need to let the world know!! I had an airbrush makeup application with individual lashes for a wedding I was attending, and honestly I have never looked and felt so

I used Shara for my wedding and loved it, so I decided that after all that madness settled, I should go for a real makeup lesson. I was really nervous because I am a ligloss and mascara type of girl and didn't want to learn something that

Shara rocks!!! Makeup lesson with her was so much fun and informative. I love her makeup line. I have been religiously wearing it and I am in love with my skin all over again. I am going back soon to get more stuff.

My lesson with Shara was wonderful! Shara demonstrated each technique and instructed me to then attempt it myself; she was beyond patient every step of the way. At the end of the lesson I had a million questions about products, all of which she answered while never pushing me to purchase anything. My first lesson was a few months ago and post-lesson my make-up application ALWAYS LOOKS AMAZING! which is insane for any girl :o) :o) :o) I can't thank her enough, and I cant wait to return to for additional lessons.

Im always leary of the makeup counter staff that try to sell you EVERYTHING, their only regard to making their quotas. I am not sure if that is true or not, but it is how it feels.\r

A month after my appt with Shara - my makeup applications (by ME) still look great - my morning routine is super simplified And I couldnt be happier..\r
\r
I only wish I had gone in my early 20s or teens!

I loved having Shara do my airbrush makeup with lashes for a big event I attended on Saturday. I found Shara's makeup studio online, and from the moment I called, I knew I was going to be in great hands. I needed to look my most fabulous, as I was being photographed with an A list celeb that night. I was so much more confident knowing that my makeup would last all night and would not be shiny or oily. The lashes Shara used were perfection! She customized them towards my exact eye shape by using individual lashes in a few different sizes. I have had my makeup done for many different events over the years, and Shara's application was the most flawless and long lasting. I found her location at The Pierre Hotel to be beautiful and conveniently located. I will definitely be returning for all of my important events, and am booking a makeup lesson with her very soon.

After meeting with several makeup artists to do makeup for my wedding, it was very easy to make the decision to work with Shara for my big day. The trial session we had was beyond thorough and professional. She listened to everything I wanted and had her assistant take notes throughout the session, something no other makeup artist had done, which I found very impressive. Moreover, her prices were very reasonable compared to everyone else I met with. On my wedding day she did 7 people's makeup. Not only did everyone look gorgeous and natural, she made a huge effort to take the time with each bridesmaid to make sure they acheived the look that they wanted. After my wedding, several guests approached me asking who did everyone's makeup because it was ""stunning"" and ""flawless."" Recently I took a makeup lesson with Shara, which was so informative and useful. Her techniques were accessible and her explanations were very detailed and clear. She really is top of her field!

I can't speak enough amazing words about Shara Strand. I initially met with her, because she was all the buzz in my circle of girlfriends. They had all booked one on one makeup lessons with her, and all looked flawless, happy, and glowing! I such saw a major improvement and they got so many compliments that I buckled down and called for my appointment. She changed my life with each stroke of the brush. The colors she picked for me were so different and so gorgeous. I've had makeup done at the Saks counter, but Shara showed herself as a true artist. I loved her location at The Pierre Hotel! I also love that I can now depend on someone who knows how to pick my perfect colors. Her line of makeup is reasonably priced and my skin has never looked better. She is kind and honest at the same time. Sometimes I cant believe I could look this good without going under the knife. I have learned so so much. My advice, if you are seeking a change in your makeup or a makeover in general, See Shara. She will make you very happy.

I was given a gift certificate from my sister to try Shara's makeup lessons, and thought the experience could not have been better.

I've always been intimidated of makeup, never knowing the right way to apply and what colors and brushes to use. I needed A LOT of help (NYC is a touch place!) Shara was so patient and friendly, showing me a step by step way of creating a great natural look. Her assistant took notes the whole time (which are now hanging on my bathroom mirror!). Shara's teaching methods are spot on, and easy to follow.

This was so much better than going to a department store. It was such personal attention, from someone who not only knew what she was doing, but loved teaching it. I didn't feel pressured in any way, but I did leave with brand new brushes, a couple skincare things, and makeup I can wear on an everyday basis. Since starting to do my new makeup routine, it seems like everyone has started to notice. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new foundation and concealer. I finally found the right colors for my skin tone.

The lesson was probably one of the best gifts I've ever received. Thanks Shara!

Shara is wonderful. I try to have my makeup updated every year or so, and I'd say that Shara's was the best makeover I've had--and that's compared to some name-brand cosmetic companies! Her teaching techniques are fabulous--including demonstration, practice, written instructions and no hard-sell. I left there with skin care and makeup tools for an enhanced natural look. The products are great with very reasonable prices. Go see Shara and you'll leave feeling very happy!

Just got home from a makeup lesson with Shara and I am totally and completely wowed!! Shara is such a creative artist, and knew exactly what she was doing. She helped me understand makeup, application, and colors in a way that no one has been able to explain it to me before. She was clear and professional, and is a total makeup expert. Another plus, is that she was so patient and such a sweetheart. I would and will recommend her to all my friends who are looking to take their beauty routine to the next level. I walked out buying incredibly beautiful eye and lip colors, as well as natural skin products and brushes. She is very reasonable in her fees, and her products are also a very good value for the quality. I like that she worked with all mineral products, as I am very careful what I use on my skin. One of the best things I have ever done for myself.

My wedding was August 13th, 2011 at The Pierre and I had the best experience with Shara, doing my bridal makeup. I had four trials before Shara. I literally booked her on the spot. I literally felt like I was a princess. People kept commenting how I looked like I walked right out of a bridal magazine. I decided to have Shara airbrush my skin and it was the best decision, because my makeup lasted until 3 AM when I finally went to sleep. I felt natural, beautiful, and glamorous. She also did makeup for my 6 bridesmaids and Mom. Everyone looked stunning. Shara is such a professional and I am so lucky to have found her.

First of all, Shara is awesome!! I emailed her about setting up a really fun girls night out makeup lesson/makeup instruction for me and my six girlfriends. We scheduled it for a Thursday evening, after we all got off work. We had THE BEST time! One by one, we all had our time with Shara to learn about what colors and brushes we should be using to achieve the look we were going for. We all learned so much about makeup and skincare. She works with very high quality makeup, and we were able to purchase whatever we wanted after the lesson (but nothing was pushed). It's so important to have makeup instruction! You can have a ton of makeup, but without knowing the correct way to apply, it will never look the way you want it to. Added bonus was that Shara became like a friend to us. She is so professional, sweet, and talented. We wanted to go out with her after the party! We loved meeting her, because she is so passionate about beauty and makeup! It's always so much fun being around someone who loves what they do (and does it extremely well!). I have already told my sisters about her, and plan to go back for a fall look and a follow up lesson.

I was searching everywhere, but found Shara on google from her glowing reviews. They could not be more spot on. She is a gem! She introduced me to colors and techniques I never thought about and then showed me, with patience how to apply them. She is a special woman. If you're looking for a makeup lesson that would make a difference, run, don't walk. She's THAT good.

Seriously, the makeup application and lesson I had with Shara was beyond words. My only complaint is that I didn't discover Shara till now! I went through my 20s without my new found makeup wisdom :(

I was wearing tons of grays and dark lip kind of colors, and Shara completely changed that. She brought me to life and made me look so much brighter by using peach and bronze tones. Love it! Also, she taught me to do a smokey eye. Yep, she pretty much changed my world :) Such a great find, and she's such a doll.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Shara!! I'm a total believer. Right off the bat I knew she was the bomb when I saw her beautiful display of makeup. We talked about my goals and I felt so comfortable in her hands. She really opened my eyes to new colors and how to do a smokey eye. She coached me through the lesson, and was such a great teacher. Total sweetheart! I'm not an easy customer, but I got a mineral foundation, two shadows, primer, and liner that looks amazing.

SIDE NOTE---when I left, after the lesson, I had a really cute guy follow me five blocks down the street, and when I told him I was married, he STILL wouldn't leave me alone. He told me to congratulate my husband. And I never get guys following me down the street. Shara is incredible, hands down!

Shara is simply fabulous!! I'm so lucky to have gotten a last minute appointment with her for this week. She books fast! I called a couple weeks ago and there was no availability. But, I finally got in and I'm so pleased!! As a woman of Asian decent, I have an issue with my eyes looking small. I learned amazing tips at our lesson, and even how to apply individual lashes. She is a pretty great teacher. Even though the lesson was for 60 minutes, I was with her for 90. This is just what I needed to get out of my winter slump. I feel refreshed, educated, and beautiful!

Two of my friends used Shara as their makeup artist for their weddings last year, and so I knew I had to book a trial! Also, I heard her name through another friend's recommendation. When, you hear someone's name a few times, you know she's gotta be great! AND SHE MOST CERTAINLY IS! Shara makes you feel comfortable and beautiful in her presence. She treated me with a lot of respect and care, was very patient with me, and made my bridal makeup trial a delight. I walked out so excited about my makeup. I booked her on the spot and one of the things I now look forward to most about my wedding day is having my makeup done. She's a master at individual lashes, they look so natural. I feel very lucky to have found and booked Shara!

I'd been hearing from a few friends about Shara (she did their weddings), and then found her reviews on Yelp. Yesterday was my makeup lesson. Words cannot describe how talented I think Shara is. She has a beautiful place on the UES, is an incredible makeup artist, and her ""bedside manner"" is the best I've found in NYC. Seriously, her makeup skills are TO DIE FOR! She has an uncanny ability to pick just the right color combinations, and know exactly how much or how little to apply. She is a true artist. She seems to do makeup with sincere passion, which I think ROCKS! The best part was, even though I had a full face of makeup, I felt so natural, beautiful, and glowy!

The tips she gave me for skincare and makeup were invaluable. I wish I could have gotten back all the money I've spent along the years not really knowing what makeup and brushes to buy! Shara works with beautiful makeup products as well from different lines, and I loved how reasonably priced everything was! I seriously LOVE the shadows, mineral foundation, and brushes I got from her! I would not be surprised if Shara becomes a superstar in the makeup world very soon. She is one who absolutely deserves all the success!

I googled for hours and hours looking for a great makeup lesson. I'm SO glad I found Shara. She was well worth all of my research. Some background on me: I'm in my 30s, not exactly a makeup junkie (but love all things beauty), and a NYer for 17 years. I've been to what seems like every counter in Bloomingdales, Saks, Lord and Taylor, Sephora to learn some pro tips for applying makeup. I ended up with no real knowledge and a plethora of makeup I never even touched :(

All that is different now since I finally had an amazing makeup lesson with Shara. She analyzed exactly what I really wanted to learn, and really understood me. We went over skincare, makeup colors, and then finally, technique. She was incredibly patient and just a beautiful artist. I don't think I'll be doing my makeup as perfect as Shara in the near future, so for major events, I'll still book her..but, I feel confident that I will be doing my makeup at least 70% better than I used to-on a daily basis. I am glad I brought my makeup case with the products I use most, because Shara also gave me an idea of what I should be using and what I could be throwing away.

I also LOVE the products and brushes I purchased from Shara after my lesson. The brushes were awesome quality and MUCH cheaper than I could find in Sephora. The makeup looked like it was made for me, and again, was relatively inexpensive. I got the most amazing colors!

Oh, and I went out the night of the makeup lesson with a girlfriend who couldn't believe how amazing my skin and eyes looked. I think a true test of great makeup is the girlfriend test! Shara passed with flying colors!

Shara!

I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing job on my makeup at the wedding. I felt absolutely beautiful and looked flawless throughout the night. My mother and maid of honor were so pleased with their makeup and honestly, they never looked better! Everyone at the wedding was complimenting our makeup! I know I expressed concern before the wedding about my makeup not lasting throughout the day and night, but I could not believe how long the makeup lasted! I looked just as fresh at 2am as I did when you just did my makeup! I have honestly never felt so perfect, and it's all thanks to you and your talent!

Not only did your amazing makeup skills make me feel beautiful, but your down-to-earth, positive personality made getting ready for my wedding so relaxing and enjoyable. You are truly a gem to work with. We had such a a great time getting our makeup done! You truly put 110% into your work, and I can't thank you enough for your talent and hard work.

You are truly such a talented makeup artist and such a pleasure to work with. I have so many weddings coming up and could not imagine using anyone else for my makeup.

Thank you again for everything Shara!

I've been looking for a makeup lesson to teach me the colors I should be using, and some tips for every day application. I thought it would be fun to bring my Mom with me, so we could both have a lesson. The first thing I loved was when I received an email back within 10 minutes. When we went to Shara's place for the makeup lessons, I felt very excited that it was a friendly environment. I felt like Shara was a girlfriend, and she even made my mother feel at ease.

The lessons went great! Shara showed us how to apply makeup to each feature, and then let us apply makeup ourselves, with her patient guidance. I have posted notes from my lesson on my bathroom mirror and I have gotten SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! My mom said she finally learned how to do a good base, and discovered that she could use colors she never thought of, like bronze and lilac. Another plus, is that my Mom and I were able to order makeup directly from Shara. We felt at ease that the right makeup was ordered (instead of blowing so much money on products I'll never use from the department stores!) We received the products within a few days.

This was such a treat for us and we will be telling everyone who wants to look a little better to CALL SHARA!

Wow, two days later and I am so happy I had a professional makeup lesson with Shara. I am a NYer in my mid 30s. Like so many of my friends, I spend so much money of beauty products and never really had the training on how to apply makeup and what was right for my skin complexion and type. Working with Shara was such a pleasure. Her place is so beautiful and calming. She makes it such a great environment, with candles and music. It's definitely not a factory approach to beauty. She is incredibly patient and has such a wonderful spirit.

We started by talking about skin care and she let me know what I should be doing and what products would work best for my skin. Then, she took me to the makeup chair, where we took a look at what I had been using. Shara, then step by step took me through an everyday makeup look and actually made me mimic what she was doing on one side of my face. She is a great teacher!

She then showed me how to make the makeup more dramatic for nights and events. I walked out with an amazing makeup look, and she even gave me great tips for my hair. When I went home to my husband, he LOVED it! That was the cherry on top for me. This was the best money I've spent on a beauty service. Hands down!

OMG!! I really do not have enough good things to write about Shara, and the ladies at Makeup for You. Professional, upbeat, so talented...simply AMAZING artists. I was married a little under a month ago at The Pierre and wanted to feel no stress when it came to beauty on my wedding day. I had 14, YES 14 bridesmaides PLUS six family members who needed hair and makeup. Shara was a great organizer and had two of the best artists there to help her! We didn't even run off schedule. Everyone's makeup and hair was picture perfect!

As for Shara's makeup, my skin has never looked better. I don't think there is an artist out there who can blend skin the way Shara can. She made my skin look like velvet and the pictures are amazing. She uses very high end products and never skimps out on quality. Jaqueline did my hair and it turned out exactly the way I imagined! A lot of my girls wanted smokey eyes, with lashes and I did not recieve any complaints. All I can say is, if you are looking for makeup/hair for your wedding, give these ladies a call!!

I could not have been LUCKIER when I called this morning for a last minute appointment for TODAY! I woke up in a bit of a funk and had an important lunch meeting. I've always been afraid of makeup artists making me look ultra dramatic, but Shara did amazing makeup! Glowy, soft smoky colors, PERFECT blending. I FELT AMAZING. I loved how she used Armani foundation and the cargo bronzer I love. I also love Nars and Bare Escentuals, and she used all the best products. The makeup took place at Shara's on the upper east side and we just chatted and laughed for most of the time. I had a few lashes on each eye and felt like I was on a mascara commercial! haha. Shara is a total class act, with TALENT! I think she would made anyone feel beautiful and ultra confident.

I called Shara a few weeks ago after an internet search directed me towards her business. My daughter Samantha is having her Bat Mitzvah at the end of the month, and Shara will be doing makeup for my three daughters, my mother, and myself. I found Shara to be a total sweetheart, amazing to deal with, very well priced, and quite professional. We did a trial with my daughter and myself. She made me look and feel beautiful, and made my daughter look and feel gorgeous. Shara has a talent of knowing and judging the exact right type of makeup and colors to select for each woman she works on. She is a true artist! We feel very lucky to have her booked for our event.

Everything always works out the way it's meant to. I had my makeup scheduled with another makeup artist who cancelled on me two weeks before my wedding! I located Shara and called her. What a pro! She handled EVERYTHING and I scheduled my trial! I was sooo much happier with my makeup by Shara than the other artist. Seriously, all makeup artists are NOT created equal. The day of my wedding, Shara made everyone sooo happy, including my hard to please Mom and not so easy to please Mother in Law. The makeup stayed from 12 PM all the way till 2 AM, when I washed it off (sadly). My makeup was just amazing, I got so many compliments all night. The lashes she put on me made ALL the difference.

Pros: I had my dream wedding makeup done by the best girl around!

Cons: Not a one!

.

I had the most amazing time at my wedding (May 22nd, 2010) and never felt so beautiful. Much of it was in thanks to Shara and Scarlett at Makeup for You. Seriously, I never could have imagined my makeup coming out so amazing. All day, people came up to me and told me how stunning I looked. Shara listened to me closely and made me feel so comfortable with her. I feel like she was like a sister and whenever I got the least bit nervous, she knew exactly what to say and how to act. The lashes put on me and my bridesmaides and my mom MADE the makeup. The girls were so professional and everything ran on time. If you want the best experience with makeup on your wedding day, look no further.

Pros: SUCH GORGEOUS MAKEUP, professional, kind, on time!

Cons: I already miss looking and feeling so beautiful

.

From the moment I met Shara, I knew I was going to love her! She was so welcoming. I was so nervous about my trial, but after reading these reviews, I knew I would be in great hands. She listened to my concern and then did a fantastic job. I actually booked her before I left! My fiance thought I looked great when I came home. I especially loved the individual lashes and the glowy look I was given. I am so obsessed!!!!! I feel really lucky to have her do my wedding makeup.

I am so glad I searched here for makeup artists. I am a 40 year old female, who has unfortunately seen some signs of the aging process, as we all do eventually. I started communicating with Shara to do makeup for an event I had last month. I just wanted to look natural, but great. Shara is so patient and gentle when it comes to makeup application. She is very big into blending and her makeup looks better than the airbrushing I've see in magazines. I couldn't be happier to find such a gem. Her individual lash application is also flawless! They look so real and natural, I wish I could have them all the time.

I didn't want a factory approach for my wedding. I didn't go to Klenfields for my dress ( knew that they would be beautiful, but I get nervous in that kind of setting). I personally need a more individualized approach. I first thought of the cheapie way of makeup for my wedding...asking a person who sells products at Bloomingdales do it. But she wasn't used to the level of work I want. My bridal trial with Shara was special, a great experience to remember. She has a gift, an art of REALLY listening and is confident to pull it off. She knocked it out of the park with my makeup and I am really lucky she's able do my makeup the day of my wedding this June! One less thing to worry about!

Pros: Two thumbs up, sweet personality, happy to have found her

Cons: No negatives here

I had a fear of putting on makeup, because I thought it would take me hours! I really only had 5 things in my makeup case, and I hardly ever used them. I read some reviews about the makeup lessons given by Shara and I thought, ""what the heck""..so I scheduled a lesson after work and I am so glad I did. Shara made the process of learning how to put on my makeup so easy. I am convinced I need only about 5 minutes in the morning to do my makeup, and I have the tools to know what to do to spice it up for night. I was concerned mostly with my eyes and how to accentuate them and I learned so many tricks. I feel like Shara should write a book, because she makes it so easy. I found her studio to be so cute as well! Best 100 dollars I have spent in a long time!

Pros: Quick way of learning makeup, good value

I had an appointment with a makeup studio yesterday, and they double booked themselves, so I was really in a MESS. I called over to Makeup For You and got a last minute appointment. I had a very upscale affair, so I needed to look my very best. Shara was very welcoming and asked me questions, so that I felt comfortable. It was a pleasure to be in her hands and I came out beautifully. She's quick, too! I feel lucky.

I had taken a half day off to get my hair and makeup done before a charity event last Thursday. I was so calm around Shara when she had me in her talented hands. I told her I didn't like when makeup artists put so much on and also told her a makeup artist should read a person before doing the makeup, that way she isn't wearing someone else's face! Shara absolutely listened to me and I really loved what she did. It was so beautiful, and so natural at the same time. I can't wait for the next time I get my makeup done.

My best friend found Shara through Citysearch a couple of years ago for her wedding, and I was the maid of honor. Most of my friends are all getting married around the same time, and we all agree that Shara is a great find and our favorite vendor! She is just so talented, so patient; I feel like she is one of the family. She reads you before she starts and always hits the makeup we want on the nose. So, even though I am not getting married till July, I already booked my day and just came home from my trial. My fiance says I look super sexy! And he never says a word! He didn't realize I put lashes on, but they make such a difference. Love that!

I've had my makeup done over a dozen times by Shara. I made my first appointment about a year ago to have my makeup done for a friend's wedding. I met lovely Shara and felt instantly felt comfortable in her company. She was so welcoming and her spirit was so positive and confident. I remember we discussed how I wanted to look, as she offered me wine, tea, and coffee. She really wants you to be comfortable so you will look your best! After that first time, I was hooked! It was GORGEOUS! She pulled me out of my shell and I was able to be the woman I wanted to be. Her upper east side location is so convinent for me and so I pop in whenever I want to look my best. Sometimes, she talks me into new colors and looks and it always looks phenominal! I highly reccomend Shara to anyone who has something they want to look dynamite for. She's awesome and even though I go a lot, it's so affordable, especially considering how much fun I have every time I get my makeup done. And my pictures speak volumes. I can go on and on about her, but I'll end by saying that there aren't many truly kind, truly talented people in NYC, but Shara is a breathe a fresh air.

I was married on September 5th, 2009 and I hired Shara to do makeup for me, my 5 bridemaides, mother, and husband's mother. She added so much to our day by being her upbeat, calm self. Every person came out just gorgeous and the makeup lasted all night, through all of our pictures and all the dancing! I felt amazing and like I was floating all night. Shara is a nervous bride's dream, because she is always there to answer any questions you have and promptly!

My bridesmaids and I couldn't have been more pleased with Shara's job on our makeup for my wedding on 9/6/09. We were all so sad to wash our faces after the wedding! :) I was worried that the makeup would not last through hours of photos, eating, drinking, and dancing, but all of the makeup lasted perfectly throughout the night. Also, Shara is just a pleasure to work with. She has a great personality and quickly responds to emails and phone calls.\r
\r
Shara is the best! I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again!\r

I contacted Shara about 5 months ago to set up my wedding trial. It's really hard when you never loved any of your friend's bridal makeup and can't go by their recommendations. I found these glowing reviews and made the plunge to make a trial. I found the studio to be really nice, clean and Shara to be personable, comforting, and had beautiful makeup on herself. I felt at ease and she really took her time. She nailed on on first look! I was so excited when I left! On my wedding day, Shara came with her assistant Leah ( a total doll) to my hotel. They did my 5 bridesmaides, my mother, and my now husbands mother and no one had anything bad to say. In my Italian/Irish family, that's a miracle! ha! These girls have a gift of really listening to what you want and make YOU come through the makeup. It was a gorgeous day all around, and the makeup staying put all night (even in the summer!) made me so happy!

Cons: I want them to make me up every day

I had such an unbelievable time getting ready for the most special day of my life. Shara not only was on time to my hotel the day of my wedding, she was early! She was so professional and so happy to be with us. Everyone's makeup came out flawlessly (and her and her asst did 10 women all in all!) The makeup stayed on all night long and I can honestly say I don't think I've ever looked prettier. Her individual lashes are so natural and a work of art. I picked the absolute right person (and after 3 trials, BELIEVE ME, I know..haha). This is one makeup artist whose heart is in the right place, and it shows in the makeup. Two big thumbs up.

Thank goodness for talent and professionalism! I am getting married April 12th on Long Island.. It's just a couple of months away! I had actually booked a makeup artist that a friend of mine had used at her wedding and each time I called her, had to remind her of everything..She didn't have anything together and never called back. I had a nightmare that this woman wouldn't show. I called Shara 2 weeks ago to talk about what I was going through and she was honestly caring and heard me out. Since I didn't sign a contract, I went for a trial with Shara and she work miracles! I fell in love with the way I looked. Her studio is all mirrored and I could NOT STOP LOOKING at myself! lol..I cancelled on the other whackadoo and hired Shara, who always returns my phone calls within a day, is sweet as pie, and is so talented. I recommend her to any nervous bride. She really understand who you are and what you would like, even if you can't put it into words! I feel like she is a hidden gem...oh, and the other funny thing is that she was literally half of the price of what the other woman was asking for. And she was three times as talented!

I have been in my apartment for what seems like the entire winter! My boyfriend and I had an event Thursday night and I just felt like looking amazing. I searched for makeup on this website and came to email Shara. She scheduled me in. I honestly never thought I could look that good. My boyfriend went CRAZY. It was awesome. Having my makeup done made me feel so confident and I was able to speak to anyone at the party and I just had the best time. Makeup really works miracles when done right. I will definitely be returning!

Having my makeup done made me feel so confident and I was able to speak to anyone at the party and I just had the best time. Makeup really works miracles when done right. I will definitely be returning!

Pros: I felt amazing, my boyfriend went nuts!

Cons: I wish I could do it myself

I became a bride last Saturday and hired Shara to do my makeup, plus my sister, and three bridesmaides. She came to my hotel in Long Island, where we were getting ready and was on time, so professional, and I am convinced did the BEST job anyone could have done. Plus, I had some pretty difficult to please NYC gals to contend with as my bridesmaides. I am so happy with the way my makeup came out and that was a big concern of mine, being it's my face and the biggest day of my life. As a matter of fact, everyone she touched loved their makeup. She is so talented and so sweet and I am going to do my best to spread the word about her. I wish her much success.

Pros: Beautiful job and we couldn't be happier

I am in my mid twenties and still had yet to figure out the first thing about makeup. It wasn't really pushed and explained to me in the past, so my attempts were pretty lousy. I really needed to find a lesson that would show me basics and I did! Shara was a pure pleasure. She never once made me feel stupid and made everything make complete sense. Plus, I felt really comfortable and at home with her, which allowed me to try things without feeling insecure. I am excited for my new look and am hoping that the men of NYC will take notice...haha.

I was in a jam a few days ago when I had a last minute date with this great guy I met long ago. He was in NYC and I wanted to make an impression. I found great hair people at Arrojo Studios, but then I wanted someone who really knew what they were doing for my makeup. I took a leap of faith and made an appoitment with Shara the day of, and she happily fit me into her schedule. I am so glad she did because I felt amazing and just like myself (just like who I always wanted to be..and my confidence showed through). My date kept on saying that something was different about the person I had become and he liked it ;) Yeah for beauty!

I?m from the UK, but got married in Central Park NYC in August, we arranged everything to the last detail to be perfect and I wanted my whole wedding experience to be fun, relaxing and no hassle, therefore I spent a loonnnnnggg time looking for the perfect person in NYC, to do my make up. I was very conscious that I didn?t want to be made up to look too unnatural (as I wanted to be ?me? on my wedding day!!!), I don?t usually wear a lot, so I wanted someone who would listen to me but also make me feel at ease. I found her!!! Shara listened to me, understood what I was looking for (with regards to style to match my dress) and made me feel completely comfortable and relaxed in her company. Her studio is gorgeous and she is a beautiful person outside and in!, not snooty at all, very down to earth and really good fun. She helped me make my wedding day as perfect as it was!! If you need your make up done?..Go to her!

I found Shara online when searching for a make up artist to do my make-up on my Wedding day.(September 5, 2008) I e-mailed Shara and received a phone call back from her instantly. From then I knew she was my girl, we kept in touch during the months coming up to ""The day"" and she helped calm nerves and gave me advice to keep my skin clear and fresh.\r
Shara has this gift of pulling peoples personality through make-up, she makes you an aesthetically better version of you, she doesn't over do it, she makes you glow from within. My pictures all came out beautiful and I cried when I had to wash my face, I really felt like a princess. I am very thankful that I found Shara she is wonderful and I highly, highly, highly reccomend her.\r

I was married this past Saturday in NYC. I was lucky enough to do a google search that led me to Shara and I really believe it was fate. I had both my mother and groom's mother, myself, and my 7 bridesmaides to have makeup. Not only did everyone look stunning walking down the aisle, but Shara successfully followed everyone's personal style, never once repeated looks on any of my girls, and if someone wanted a little more liner or mascara, never once got offended. She was so lovely and everyone loved her, from the older ladies to my bridesmaides. She just has such a stress free way about her and I couldn't be happier with how I looked. She really took her time on me and was so serious about giving me the most beautiful makeup ever. I truly felt like a celebrity going to the Oscars. When I looked in the mirror for the first time, I literally screamed out of excitement! I still can't believe how my makeup turned out!
