I live in London and was visiting NYC for my cousin's wedding. I knew I wanted to look amazing, since my family hadn't seen me in 4 years, but didn't know which professionals to use. I found both my hair and makeup artist on citysearch! I felt like you couldn't go wrong with what people were saying about Shara. She was fabulous. Not snooty AT ALL. Very kind, extraordinarily talented, and put me right at ease. I went for the ""smokey neutral look"" and we added a few lashes. I felt ultra glam and my makeup stayed all night long. You wouldn't believe how my family was complimenting me!! I recommend her with the deepest confidence!

Pros: Very talented lady!!!!

Cons: I'm from London, she lives in NYC.

I am not joking when I say I had four bridal trials for my upcoming wedding next November. FOUR! I got recommendations, spoke to everyone about what I wanted, even brought pictures and everyone was pretty oblivious to what I wanted. I was so frustrated! I actually called Shara and explained my situation, but she assured me she would be my last trial and SHE WAS! It was my dream makeup and I am so glad to have not settled for just average. I wish my wedding were tomorrow! I am so happy!!!!

Pros: Love my makeup artist for my wedding!

.

I never knew makeup could make me feel sooo beautiful. I loved my wedding. It was absolutely the best day of my life, thanks to the amazing people I found to work with me to create my fantasy wedding. I spoke to many people who were really just out to rip me off and it was so out of control. I searched and found Shara through reviews and called her. She was a real person, not a salon that wanted to charge me 1,000 for an hour or something ridiculous. She was there to answer my every question. The day of my trial--I was SOOO excited!!! i wanted my wedding to come much sooner, because I was so happy with the way I looked. She just gave me the perfect combination of natural glowing skin and beautiful polished eyes and lips. My pctures are going to be amazing!!!

Pros: Awesome makeup!!!!

I made a lesson to basically learn how to do makeup for when I go out. For years, I would see magazine ads and watch people go out with these amazing, dramatic eyes. I always tried, but looked like I had racoon eye! At my lesson, we went over basics but really zeroed in on trying and working with my eye shape and creating a smokey eye. It's more steps than you think, but definitely tangeable when you know what those steps are. I had my lesson last week and have been practicing every night. I have been getting so many compliments and the men are definitely taking a notice!

Pros: Makes makeup easy to do, good value, friendly atmosphere

.

i am a woman who is really interested in makeup. I don't have a ton of makeup and don't have a ton of money to spend on a school to teach me. I was looking around for a while for some classes to teach me some basics and I found Shara to be the most down to earth and kindest person I spoke to. I booked a lesson with Shara on a Sunday morning. I was excited to see she offered weekend hours. I learned so much, from daytime foundation to nightime smokey eyes. I actually booked another lesson 2 weeks later, so I could practice what I learned and go over it again. I don't think I'll become a ""makeup artist"", but it's going to be really fun to practice my makeup and even do my friend's makeup for parties and things. It was well worth it.

Pros: Learned a lot, easy going, made me feel comfortable practicing makeup

Cons: A lot to learn

I have been in the city for over 30 years now and have been to the best of the best when it comes to salons. My makeup artist that I have been using for 10 years was unavailable for an event where I needed to look great. I do my makeup well, but definitely not professionally. I also like the way individual lashes look, and I cannot do them myself. I saw these reviews and booked an appointment. When I went to Shara's studio, I was surprised to see a pretty 20-something open the door. I have had my experiences with makeup artists in their 20s and was hesitant. Let me just say that I believe she did a better job on my face than I have ever had. She did the PERFECT smokey eye and was confident the entire time. She has a keen eye for color and taste, which in my book is very important. Makeup is all about style, and she has obviously had years of experience. She also had a very soft touch and I didnt feel as though I was being poked and proded. It was very relaxing and soothing. I recommend her with no qualms. She is my new makeup artist. Now, I just need to find a way to let my other makeup artist that I am moving on.

I recently had a makeup lesson with Shara. I have always been really interested in makeup, but really didn't know the professional way of applying. I always have done my friends makeup for parties and I enjoy doing it, but I wasn't really sure I knew what i was doing. You can say I am a bit of a makeup junkie. I found Shara to be professional and friendly. I really walked out with a much better understanding of different techniques to apply makeup. I liked it so much that I am going back for a second lesson once I practice what I learned. I went on a shopping trip to Sephora with Shara, where she passionately talked about her favorite products and showed me why some products are betterthan others. For the amount of money I spend on makeup I really never use, this was a good option for me. I also liked that she was able to work with me on weekends, as I work all week.

Pros: Excellent makeup lesson, she took her time with me

I got back my wedding proofs from my wedding and I cannot even believe how I looked. I know it looked like me, but I looked really awesome. My skin looked amazing, and I am so glad I didn't go with airbrush makeup. So many of my friends looked very fake and their pores showed a lot. My skin looked so fresh and natural and my makeup stayed all night. I loved how my eyes looked so big and I am so glad I went with individual lashes. Shara is such a perfectionist and I will treasure these pictures forever. Too bad she didn't come on my honeymoon, I could have used her every night before dinner, but I actually did learn a few things here and there from my trial. I feel really lucky to have met Shara and have her be with me on my wedding day.

Pros: Awesome wedding makeup, stayed all night, loved my skin and lashes

Cons: Wish she was able to come on my honeymoon and do my makeup every night

I am a makeup junkie and always want to learn more. I love the smokey eye look, expecially, but when I try, I look like I have 2 black eyes. Everytime I go to Sephora, I spent hundreds on makeup, but never really use the colors. A makeup lesson made sense for me, but i tried one once, and it really didn't help. I thought i should try again and after days of reasearching the web, Shara had the most positive responses to her makeup lesson. This girl needs to write a book. She is so patient and didn't talk down to me. I went to Sephora with her and we picked out amazing colors that I actually know how to use. It really is all about the brushes. I never could do my eyeshadow the way the pros do it, and when I do it now, it actually looks polished and good. After spending so much money and useless makeup, it just made sense to book this lesson and I think every makeup junkie should give it a go. Money well spent, and I though her rates were reasonable.

Pros: Now I know how to use makeup (especially on my eyes) and I look polished.

Cons: I didn't find any

I wanted to write a review a couple weeks after the dust settled from my daughter's wedding. I got back some proofs from the photographer and saw how gorgeous my daughter, Sarah looked all day. And what stunned me was that she looked gorgeous before her ceremony at 2 PM and then looked unbelievable at 11 PM when she was having a great time on the dance floor. Her makeup was flawless. Not only did Shara do an unbelievably concentrated, focused, and thoughtful job on Sarah, but she did a wonderful job on me, her grandmother, and 5 bridesmaides. She spent the entire morning with us in the sweet where we were getting ready and shared our laughs, while remaining completely in control of the fact that she was there to insure that the bride and everyone looked just amazing. We all got compliments all night. We found Shara online, doing a google search and found these reviews, called for a trial and met her at her studio. We knew we loved her from the first moment she opened the door. Great people should have great success. I rank her as one of the ""greats"".

Pros: Bride and party looked amazing all night. Amazing makeup.

Cons: She became a friend to us and we miss her!

Let me start by saying I don't wear make up on a daily basis. As far as I am concerned I think it is too time consuming. I found Shara searching for someone reasonable to do my makeup for my wedding in May. We scheduled a time to do the trial. She is very flexible and affordable. I must admit I was very nervous. The last ""professional"" to put make up on me made me look like Bozo the clown's sister! Shara is very sweet. She take her time to find out what you want and how you want to look and a masterpiece is born! I can't wait to have her do my make up on my wedding day. 5 thumbs up!!!! I would definitely recommend her services.

I had been researching everywhere to find the perfect makeup artist for my sister's wedding. We wanted to find a makeup artist who we felt comfortable with, who really knew their stuff, and was just very reliable. I find the NYC makeup artist scene to be very intimidating. The artists I spoke with were just kind of rude an into themselves! And I could not BELIEVE what they had the nerve to charge. I mean it's shocking! Anyway, I found out about Shara online and then was directed to her reviews and called. She was completely different. She was completely professional and happy to talk about anything. My sister went for her trial and loved it. I feel so lucky to have found such a gem and would tell anyone looking for a makeup artist to call her.

Pros: LOVE THIS GIRL!

Cons: not a single one

I decided to treat myself to a makeup lesson, because I have no idea what to do with my makeup, and was not about to trust a department store with my face. My cousin once told me she was hired to be a makeup artist at Bloomingdales without any experience. So, that was number one for me. To go to someone who really knows their stuff! I spoke to Shara over the phone who sounded so friendly and showed up for my lesson. She went through my entire makeup case and we did a major cleaning. That alone was worth it! Then, Shara went step by step starting by giving me an awesome eyebrow shape. We did foundation, eyes, lips, and cheeks. I wish I could have video taped it. This girl is good!

I went to three, YES THREE, bridal trials and was driving myself crazy to find a makeup artists here in NYC that did amazing makeup. I took a leap of faith and made a bridal trial last week with Shara. Before my appoitment, I felt so dissapointed that I hadn't found my match, but hoped that Shara would be great. And she was!!!! She was an absolute 10. A magician who knew her way around making my face the prettiest I have ever looked. I am so happy to have found her and I wish I could spread the work to all of NYC's brides that Shara is NO JOKE!!!!

Like some other reviewers, this will be my first review! I use this site a lot to find NYC gems, but never felt like I wanted to write a review. It's funny, because I actually joked at my lesson that I may write a review and HERE I AM! Anyhow, I booked a makeup lesson and it made my month. I was feeling really icky and was in need of a major makeup boost. I brought my makeup case (it was really quite pathetic) to show Shara. She never judged, laughed, or made me feel silly..and believe me, I was really something to poke fun of. But, Shara was highly patient, never talked down to me, a master teacher, a wonderful artist, and an all around good person. Very nice to meet someone in this city so down to earth in this profession. I took some advice and went to Sephora to ""build my makeup case"" and got some really beautiful things. Thankfully Shara offers this makeup shopping, because I really had no clue what to get. At least now, I know I spent money on things that I will actually use. I don't feel like a makeup wiz after one hour, but I certainly have the right tools, the right colors, and some good knowledge how to go about my makeup. Shara also knows about skin and I was very glad to get some advice, because this NYC polution is killing me. I will most definitely go back again after I practice what she taught me. I want to learn more and more.

I was in desperate need of makeup help. I was hopeless! Then, I saw all these glowing reviews (not one bad things said really) and called to make an appoitment. The thing i really liked when I called is that i left a message and Shara herself got back to me the same day. There were no annoying, bratty receptionists making my appoitment. I came to understand that this is Shara's small business and she likes to be very hands on. She told me to bring my makeup case and I was so mortified, because mine had like a couple Maybelline and Loreal things..nothing great. When I arrived, she never once made me feel silly. Even when I giggled, because she made me copy her beautiful work on the other side of my face, she never laughed at me. She was so patient and told me which was to point the brush and how not to feel foolish. I am so glad there is someone out there who takes their job so seriously. She is so talented and understanding and took her time. I never felt rushed or nervous. After our lesson, I left with notes to help me remember what we did. I went to Sephora with Shara and purchased products to start my beauty kit. Oh yeah!! i am talking..nars and makeup for ever...I am so excited to start my beauty routine! And just in time for the spring..now! Now, I just need to sleep more, go to the gym, and drink water! haha..oh well, one step at a time!

I have never written a review before, but after meeting with and having a bridal trial with Shara, I feel compelled to do so. I had a few bridal trials before her and I cannot recommend her enough! Shara is very professional and super sweet. She really takes her time with you and gives you her honest and professional opinion. She is an overall great artist, with reasonable prices and much better quality thatn most others in this profession. It is refreshing to meet someone who has a sunny disposition and sincere attitude in this business! She used false individual lashes in my trial that looked great, natural and just enough to enhance but still gorgeous, and offered make up and skin care tips as well. All of my friends adored her work when they saw the pictures! I only decided to use someone else because they do both hair and makeup for the big day, but other than that, I would DEFINITELY go back to Shara again with no heisitation! Try her, You won't be disappointed.

I went on NYC citysearch, because I am from California and I needed to find a NYC makeup artist to help me look amazing for a party I was going to last week. Although my husband was coming with me and I wanted him to love my look, I hadn't seen an ex of mine for 4 years and I wanted to look STUNNING. I made an appointment with Shara after reading these glowing reviews and prayed it would be great. When I went to her studio, I just had the feeling I got lucky and was in the right hands! She is beautiful and sweet and so welcoming! We chatted and then about 30 minutes later, I was done. When my husband picked me up, he really couldn't keep his hands off me (and I have been married for 10 years!). After makeup, I went to go get a blowout and every complimented my makeup and lashed. I felt like Shara's agent, because I kept handing out her cards. I should get commision! But, anyway, the party was amazing to say the least and I am so sad to don't live in NYC to see Shara all the time.

I went to Shara last weekend with my makeup case (it had like 4 products in it..no joke!) and really needed a makeover! I wanted to know my colors, how to do natural makeup, and also what products to buy. Shara was with me for over an hour and was so patient. Great makeup artist and teacher. And now, I just need to practice. I really feel a lot better about the whole beauty thing :)

Hello all who reads this. I'm Laurie and I am a makeup junkie. Problem arrives when the makeup junkie has no idea how to apply makeup. While searching for a good lesson, I came across Shara's profile and read some reviews about her lessons. I called expecting to be paying an arm and a leg (this is the Upper East Side) and what I got was completely different. I spoke with Shara and found her to be charming and accomodating. I made my appoitment for the end of the week. I learned so much in that hour. We not only discussed application, but we also talked about the right colors for me. I went home and realized I had been working with the opposite colors for my tone. Some colors made me look older and not bright looking at all. I called Shara and asked her for a personal shopping session. She met me at Sephora and opened my eyes to the exact colors I needed to be working with. For all that money I had spent on useless makeup, this totally makes sense to me. I told her she needed to solely have a business for lesson and personal makeup shopping! She is that good at it. I am recommending all my friends to go and see her. It was a treat that I will gain from every day.

Pros: I learned so much in my lesson, got the right products for my skin, and am loving the way I look.

Cons: I found none!

For years, I always wanted to know why makeup artists applied my makeup to look so beautiful and then when I got home with the same products I bought, it looked not so good. I mean, this was a mission. To learn to do my makeup. My mistake was, I would always go to Sephora. I realize now that the girls are more trained on each brand of makeup, and less trained on the actual application. I have to admit that I have great skin. I don't need a ton of foundation. I wanted to learn how to do a smokey eye. Enough of the plain jain. When I called Shara, I wanted an appoitments ASAP. Even thought she was very busy, she tried to offer me every available time, which I love. It means she really is interested in helping people and she is a go getter. I sat with her for one hour and she showed me how to apply my makeup step by step. Then, she typed up exactly what I learned and what products would suit me best. The cool thing was that she wasn't trying to sell me on any one brand. She just happends to know what is best for all brands. After we were finished, she accompanied me to the Sephora accross the street and she showed me what I needed in order to complete the look we figured out. Now, I know my winter colors and all the tools I need to make me look the best. I have always been into looking my best and now I am fully armed!

Pros: Great makeup lesson, got everything I needed. Very knowledgable. Extremely Patient and good natured.

Cons: Now I know all my winter colors, I may need to go back in the summer when I am tan!

I just felt like I wanted to write a little something about the makeup services I had this past weekend. I went to a wedding this past New Years Eve and I was a bridesmaid. I loved the fact that Shara, the makeup artist, showed at the hotel we were getting ready at early and completely prepared. She had 7 people to do and she was pleasant, professional, and accomodating. Each person was completely happy. We all had different thoughts on how we wanted to look and she gave everyone a great look. She really felt like part of our family. I hope everyone who is having a wedding considers having Shara do the makeup. She is just so talented and I am so glad the bride picked her so we all got to have amazing pictures. All night long we were all getting compliments on our beautiful makeup and it was all thanks to Shara.

I booked Shara last week after seeing the beautiful pictures on her website and reading these reviews. It was for my bridal trial. I was literally quoted $1000 for me to get my makeup done for my wedding and though I want to look my best, I was hoping for a bit less than 1,000 dollars! I get the feeling no matter who I am booking and trying to book for my wedding, I am getting ripped off. It's sad, but I know it's a business. I just didn't realize how big the business is! The great thing about Shara is that she didn't try and rip me off. She didn't have a time clock and was only going to work with me for X amount of time. She wasn't satisfied until I was completely happy with my application. I loved my makeup and I am so excited to have it again on my wedding day!

Pros: Beautiful Job, doesn't try and rip you off just because you are getting married!

Cons: None that I found.

Thank you so much for giving me such beautiful makeup for the charity event. It was so gorgeous and I have the pictures to prove it. You're on my speed dial!

I am a mother of two and admittingly, not a girlie girl. I don't wear a ton of makeup. I have a hard enough time making sense of my outfits and getting my hair to resemble something neat. I just don't put in the time I should to my look. I am sure a lot of women out there know my drill. I have a job and raise 2 teenage daughters. Who has time for beauty? It's hard to admit, but my husband asked the other day if I can start ""looking gorgeous"" again. He is a sweet man and he meant no harm, but he thinks I am very attractive and wanted me to put the time in. I found these reviews and called to make an appoitment for a makeup lesson. I learned so much and I feel like I actually know what I am doing. I see makeup as more of a relaxation excersize now. Shara showed me that I don't even need a lot and it takes as little as 5 minutes to look a whole lot better. And my husband really appreciates it! Haha. Shara, the makeup artist, even accompanied me to Sephora and helped me pick out my colors without the hassle of being sold by a person who just wants a commision.

Pros: No pressure to look like something I am not, good artistry, friendly conversation

My daughter got married last weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. The night before her wedding (7 PM), I got the phone call no one wants to ever get. The makeup artist (will not mention a name) called to tell me she was sick and will no longer be available to do makeup for my daughter, her 5 briedesmaides, myself, and the groom's mother. I PANICKED. I mean, this was a makeup artist I signed a contract with and gave a deposit to! After about an hour of sheer panic, I went to citysearch and found Shara. I called and prayed. Shara picked up the phone and listened as I explained what had happened. She did not interupt and only wanted to see if she could help. When I told her my daughter's wedding was the next afternoon, she told me I was very lucky. She already had a wedding, but it was an evening start and was not going to be there until 3:30. She did not take advantage of my situation and discussed her normal rated with me. It was set. That morning, I had hoped she wouldn't be a flake. She showed up, 10 minutes early and set up camp. She was an organized, beautiful woman, and she was ready to work. And Stacy, the bride looked soooo grogeous. I wish I could post pictures on here. Everyone was so happy with her, and I truly believe they would have not been so happy with the other artist, had she come. I am letting everyone know about Shara. I am so glad it all worked out. They say bad things always happen the day of an event that you plan and you just need to deal with it and move on. Well, this was a biggie and I am so happy to have found Shara.

Pros: Life Savor, organized, professional, kind

I get my makeup professionally done a lot because I have a very busy social life. I go out to parties, charity functions, and other events often. I always find that there is a style in Manhattan of doing makeup. It always looks good, but plain. Maybe it's just me? But, I like to look glamorous sometimes as well. I read the reviews and contacted Shara and I was not let down. I don't think I could get bored with her makeup, because she has so many ideas and when I explained different things I like, she knew what I was saying. I felt as though as I could really talk to her.

I hope some people don't find this ridiculous, but I'm getting married this coming March and started my makeup and hair trials in September!. I had some crazy dreams where I looked aweful and wanted to make sure that didn't happen. I want to look like myself, but I don't want a doubt in my mind that I don't look my best. I had three trials, all of whom came recommended by friends who recently got married. The artists were nice, but no one would listen to me and what I wanted. I want natural, glowy makeup and a bit smokey (light smokey) on the eye. And they all wanted to do airbrush and I don't like the look. I felt like they were ""selling"" me and I don't want to feel like I am being sold for my wedding day. I wanted someone who I felt like I could trust. I had been getting really nervous about it and then I found this ad. I called Shara to speak and told her my situation. She didn't think I was crazy at all. I like a girl without judgements! I wanted to come in ASAP and she fit me in THE NEXT DAY! And there must be some higher power working on my behalf, because I absolutely loved it. She listened to everything I said to the T. I booked her on the spot and trust her completely with my family and bridesmaides. And another great thing is, after I booked her, she gave me her email and responded to all my silly questions. The next day she sent me a photo of our trial. She has the patience of a saint! Love that girl!

Pros: I finally found my makeup artist for my wedding. She is patient, talented, and reasonable!

Cons: Wish I found her sooner! I went through so many trials before finding Shara. So much wasted money.

I am so happy to have read there reviews and to have called Shara. I was looking forever for a good makeup artist and I finally found her!!! And she is a sweet, young, beautiful, and talented little lady. I could have spent hours with her just chatting. Shara is GREAT! I am the mother of a Bat Mizvah aged daughter and found her through google. Then, I saw these reviews and called. SO convinient that she is right on the upper east side. The makeup was simply gorgeous and she really cares about making every little thing perfect. Which is funny because I found out she was a virgo and she certainly has the traits of wanting perfection!

I recently called Shara because she had done my makeup for my best friend's wedding. I got her card and planned on calling when I needed to look great. Unfortunately, I lost that card. I had a terrible experience with a makeup studio on the upper east side. They basically airbrushed me and made me look like I was wearing a mask. But, enough about that horror. I was looking at this site, and I found Shara again! Yay! I use Shara now whenever I want to look beautiful. I have my makeup done sometimes to go to dinner and sometimes when I go to a black tie event. The best thing is, we are always on the same wavelengh. I don't like when makeup looks the same when you are going out to dinner and then to a black tie. I recommend Shara with full confidence.

I feel like we can do anything online, even find our makeup artists! I came to this site through random research and then checkout out the website. I was really impressed with what I saw and the pictures, so I booked my trial. I loved my trial makeup and thought it was so great that my digital picture was taken after and sent to me the next day. Everyone agrees that I looked incredible. I am really happy that I found such high quality on this website.

AHHH!! I have found my next indulgence. MAKEUP! I love having it applied professionally! I never knew this until I had to go to this charity function last weekend and I was searching for spa or makeup professionals on citysearch. I found Shara and called after reading the glowing reccomendations. I booked my application. I have really felt like in a little slump. Maybe since summer is over, but having my makeup done made me feel like a woman again. Thankfully, Shara is so reasonable, or I would never be able to go as much as I would like to. It makes as much of a difference as getting your hair blownout. The best was I had my blowout, then my makeup and I just had to go home and slip into my dress! What a perfect night.

Now, I am not one to review, but I really felt like I wanted to after my experience with Shara. I was so nervous to have someone I never met do my makeup for my daughter's wedding that I almost just did it myself. The idea of some else having control over my face was really scary for me, I looked all over citysearch and asked my friends who they used. Actually, one of them referred me to Shara and then I saw the add on citysearch, so I went to go give it a try. The reviews were great and I really had nothing to loose. Shara convinced me what type of makeup would look the best on me and I swear I would have never thought I could ever pull it off. She put individual lashes on me and no one knew. People asked what I had done all night, and no one could place it. My makeup stayed on all night (except for my lipgloss like I was warned) and kept on getting compliments all night. Best of all, it did not cost me an arm and leg. I researched some makeup artists online and they charge 10 times what I was charged and I really cannot picture it looking any better.

Pros: Great makeup and in my price range. She really showed me personal attention and talked me into some things I would have never considered. It looked wonderful.

Cons: I called a week before my party and she was booked for the afternoon, so I got my makeup done in the AM. She books up fast.

Shara did such beautiful work for my cousin's wedding. She actually came to the hotel where we were getting ready on the day of the wedding and was with the bridal party until we all went for pictures. She was so pleasant and such an addition to our family's day. She was so sweet that I almost felt like she was part of the family. If talent and good personality can make someone a success, Shara will be a superstar. There was no attitude whatsoever. We all told her exactly what we wanted and she gave some of us the pros and cons of what we asked for, but we all came out smiling. My cousin visited Shara's studio for her trial and she said it was so cute and very clean. She uses the best products and had great recommendations for skincare. It seemed like she really knew what she was doing. She has definitely had her share of training. It was also funny to listen to her celebrity makeup stories and hear who she's done. I will be returning for all my special partied.

Thank you Shara! You are so talented. I had my 20th wedding anniversary a few nights ago and the makeup was fabulous! I felt so glamorous and all my friends, family, and dear husband couldn't believe how great I looked. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It was such a fantasic experience to be treated to such glamour!

I actually went to my cousins wedding last year and was amazed at how beautiful everyone is the bridal party looked. Their skin glowed, their eyes popped. They all looked gorgeous. So, for my wedding, I booked Shara for myself and six bridesmaides, plus my mother and my now husband's mother. Every single person who had their makeup done were raving about how beautiful they felt. Their was not one unhappy person. She is so good at making skin look flawless. Having your makeup professionally done makes SUCH a huge difference. I knew I didn't want to be worrying about that on my day. I am literally jumping out of my seat waiting for my pictures. I had a fantasy wedding and I am glad my look was right on.

I was fully nervous to be made up by someone I never met, but after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a go. I decided to have my makeup done last week because I was going to a party where I wanted to look my best. OK, to be honest, there was a guy I liked and I really wanted to impress him. I work literally all the time, so it's hard for me to take such an interest in my appearance. Anyway, I went to the makeup studio (which I loved-so cute!) and had Shara do my makeup. She was very professional, reasonably priced, and talented, and I am sure she is NYC's next big makeup artist. I just hope she keeps her prices and the quality of work she gives. Oh, and by the way, that guy totally asked me for my number by the end of the party! YEAH!!

I decided to have my makeup done last week because I was going to a party where I wanted to look my best. OK, to be honest, there was a guy I liked and I really wanted to impress him. I work literally all the time, so it's hard for me to take such an interest in my appearance. Anyway, I went to the makeup studio (which I loved-so cute!) and had Shara do my makeup. She was very professional, reasonably priced, and talented, and I am sure she is NYC's next big makeup artist. I just hope she keeps her prices and the quality of work she gives. Oh, and by the way, that guy totally asked me for my number by the end of the party! YEAH!!

Pros: Quality of work, Reasonable price, Got a really hot date :)

Cons: I'm going to be a makeup junkie!

I loved my wedding trial. Shara really took her time and did such a spectacular job - I really did love they way she did my makeup. When I got home, my fiance was awed and kept commenting how gorgeous and natural I looked. When I saw his mom she told me how beautiful I looked, but didn't even realize I had makeup on - she thought that it was so natural looking. She said I looked even more beautful but didn't realize why. I loved that.

Pros: I loved it, my fiance loved it, and my future mother and law loved it. Very natural.

Shara is amazing! I just had my sweet 16 trial! She is beyond words. I brought in a picture of Jessica Biel, because I love how she looks glam all the time, but still natural. I don't like when makeup artists put globs on foundation on me, but I like my eyes to show. She knew exactly what I wanted. Perfect. My mom made a makeup lesson with her next month and I am so excited. She is def going to my makeup for my prom.

Pros: Super talented, easy going, natural, glam makeup

Cons: NONE!

Ok. So, here is the deal. I went all over Manhattan for makeup trials for my wedding. Shara was my 5th trial to be exact! I am not kidding you. The problem was everyone I went to thought they knew it ALL about the way I wanted to look on MY wedding day. I ended up looking like a half alien/half transvestite. NO KIDDING!. I walked into Shara's studio and she seemed different. After my trial was over, I looked in the mirror and I loved my makeup. My mother and fiance loved it too! FINALLY! A makeup artist who actually listens. You know, the funny thing is, she was the least expensive trial and will be the least expensive on my actual wedding day. But, the quality was leaps and bounds better. That goes to show you, you don't always pay for what you get in NYC.

Pros: Least expensive, best quality, she listens

Cons: absolutely none!

I just came back from my honeymoom and I am glowing! I cannot wait to see my pictures. I love writing reviews after I love something, so that other people can experience what I got to experience. I met Shara three weeks ago for a trial for my wedding (also I was going to a party that night and thought it would be a good night to try it out). I went to her adorable studio on the upper east and was greeted by Shara. Such a great girl! Anyway, down to business, I sat for my trial and she spent all the time she needed to achieve my dream look. I wanted a soft, natural look but still look like I had makeup up. I suffer from the type of skin that like literally eats your makeup and that was a huge worry for me. Anyway, I loved the way I looked after she was finished. It was definitely more makeup than I am used to, but she told me to see how it looks through the night and we could make any changes the day of my wedding. She was right, the makeup was beautiful and IT ACTUALLY STAYED ON through the night, minus my lipgloss! How amazing is that! I will have my pictures ready soon and I told her she can use it on her website! Who knew, I could model?? Haha!

After reading the good reviews, I called and got an appointment. I called two days before I wanted to have my makeup done and thankfully, Shara fit me in. I am a ""difficult"" makeup client. I like what I like and I have some pretty aweful experiences (HELLO Bloomingdale makeup counters ha!) I told Shara I wanted a smokey look and described how I like my makeup put on specifically. A lot of people would get annoyed, but Shara is so relaxed and easy going. She listened, we worked together, and I had a fantastic night!

Pros: Very attentive and very skilled artist. I had a great experience.

Cons: I live far from the upper east side where her studio is located

My very new wife Taylor said she wanted to write the review, but I wanted to beat her to it. I must say I was very hesitant to see Taylor's makeup on her wedding day. She has always been a natural type of girl, and she is so beautiful with hardly any makeup on. When Taylor told me she wanted to get her makeup done, I was definitely telling her she could do it herself and it would look beautiful. I want to tell you all, Shara is an expert. Taylor looked NATURAL and BEAUTIFUL on our wedding day. She looked like an angel, and while I know she had makeup on, she just looked like Taylor on her most relaxed and rested day. Fantastic job! Well done.

Pros: My wife looked STUNNING

Cons: She wants to hire Shara fulltime!

I am quite sure that Shara will go down as the next makeup guru. I had a bridal party of 5 girls, plus myself (I was a bride) and my mother to get makeup done! Shara and her staff spent great energy and time on preparing everyone for the big day and I just love Shara's sweetness! She is so so lovely! Some of us got lashes, some airbrushed, but we were all beautiful. I cannot wait to see how good we all look in my pictures!

I go see Shara every two weeks so she can put on my individual lashes. She is so precise and specific with them. She knows exactly how much I want and where to put them. I recomend her because she is so skilled.

Pros: Best lashes

A little skeptical of having a stranger make my face up, I called and make an appointment for a trial. I love going out for a night on the town, and have a busy social schedule. Makeup artists and Hair stylists are my savior. Good ones, I mean. If they are talented, it makes SUCH a difference. If you look good, you feel good. Not only did I find their service to be completely clean and professional, I looked gorgeous. My lashes stayed on for a week after my service. Also, your price was one of the least expensive. You definitely have a new, very good cient. I will be seeing you a lot more.

Just came back from my honeymoon, and I am STILL GLOWING. Not only was Shara such a professional and expert makeup artist, she was SO NICE. I totally relaxex with her. I looked AMAZING and have my pictures to prove it. She works with celebrity clientele all the time, and I felt like I was one of them. Haha

I had my makeup done by Shara for my wedding day and she was absolutely fabulous. She treated me like I was so special and listened to my every need. I felt like a princess on my day and my pictures are fantastic! I am SO pleased. She is NYC's newest gem for makeup. I never even knew how much makeup could really do. I wish I could bring her around in my pocket every day. I am very glad we had a trial though. I thought I wanted that really heavy, glam, MAC look for my wedding wih a ton of lashes and I was convinced that natrural pretty makeup was the way to go. We still went for the lashes though!
