Being a bride requires you to make a whole lot of decisions and I have to say that the best decision I made so far was booking Angela for my bridal shower & wedding day. I first heard of Angela through a friend. She was a bridesmaid and she couldn't stop raving about how amazing Angela and her team were on the day of her friend's wedding. The line that sold me was, "My makeup lasted all day and night!" After hearing such a great review and looking through her portfolio, I immediately reached out to her to schedule a trial. My first trial was back in December. She did a very soft, matte look on my eyes and my skin looked and felt flawless. My makeup wasn't caked on and I looked like myself which was exactly what I wanted. Back in June my sister had booked Angela to come to my house the morning of my bridal shower. Again, she did an amazing job. The amount of selfie's I took was insane. Angela is very knowledgeable, organized, and prompt when responding to emails. She is very sweet and soft spoken, and coming from a big Italian family where it's always loud and crazy, you definitely want Angela there to calm you down on your big day. She makes you feel calm, confident, and sexy! ;) Every bride wants to make sure they look their best on their big day and I cannot wait for Angela and her team to glam me and my bridesmaids up in less than 6 weeks!!
Angela is an amazingly talented artist! She is a perfectionist and makes sure all your concerns about your skin are addressed. Angela listens to exactly what you want and has suggestions if you're not sure. She has an extensive knowledge of different techniques and only uses the best products. She can create a myriad of looks for any occasion and I have used her not only for my wedding, but several other events as well. Angela customizes every look down to blending different colors based on skin tone for individualized foundations and lip colors matched by none! Her products never feel heavy or cakey on your face and they don't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. Not only is she a talented artist, but a wonderful beautiful person and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Angela 100 times over, she is the absolute BEST!
Angela is hands down the best make up artist out there and I wouldn't use anyone else but her ever again. She did my wedding day make up and got the exact look I was going for. The dramatic eyes, contouring and even managed to cover a huge blemish that appeared on my big day. My make up lasted perfectly all night even til the next morning (lol) She is knowledgable of exactly what she is doing and you can tell she has been in the business for years by her expertise. She is cool, calm and professions so for those brides out there that are sitting in her chair ancy for their big day, she will put your mind at ease that you will look perfect! She is even capable of handeling huge bridal parties and making sure everyone gets their special look as well. I have recommend Angela to many friend and family who have all been extremely pleased with her working her magic as well!
Angela really is the best of the best!! She is professional, sweet and beyond talented. I've been a bridesmaid in nearly a dozen weddings, and it's very disappointing when you have a look that you're going for, you express it to the makeup artist and then it turns out to be nothing that you asked for - But not with Angela!! She delivers exactly what you request EVERY TIME! My family first used her when my sister got married. My sister (who rarely wears makeup) wanted a clean, fresh and soft look. Angela made her skin look like porcelain - absolutely gorgeous. Her skin usually has many blemishes and she struggles with acne, but she looked absolutely flawless not only in person, but in all of her pictures as well. My mom and grandmother (who also had their makeup done) are both redheads and she used the perfect color palettes and shades to match their fair features. Since then, she has been the go-to gal for all of our important events! She did my makeup last month for a wedding and it looked immaculate. I too am a redhead, and it's always difficult to find a makeup artist who knows how to work with my hair coloring and fair complexion. I have freckles that I wanted to cover, super blonde eyelashes that I wanted to plump up, and somewhat non-existent blonde eyebrows. I got a spray tan the day before (excluding my face) and was worried that the foundation on my face wouldn't match the rest of my décolleté - but she was spot on! My complexion was consistent with my spray tan, my eyebrows penciled in evenly, and my lashes long, thick and very natural. I wanted to try a "winged' look with eyeliner and it came out just right, without looking drastically overdone. She did some contouring around my cheekbones and it looked so professional and clean. The worst is when they pack on layers and layers of makeup to the point where you look cakey - but this was definitely not the case. My skin was perfection the entire day and even at the end of the night, after hours of eating, dancing (and sweating), the blush, the fake lashes etc - everything stayed perfectly in place. When I get married, she will be the ONLY makeup artist I use. She is extraordinarily talented and takes the time to perfect her work. She never rushes, listens to what you want and delivers excellence. Hands down, she gets my vote!!!

Angela and her team are amazing! I had the pleasure of having them complete the makeup for both my wedding party and me. From day one, Angela was responsive and available to answer all my questions and emails. She listened to all my ideas for the wedding and provided the most personalized and professional services on the big day. In addition, she arrived very promptly the day of the wedding and had everyone done quite efficiently. Angela and her team were able to create the most unique and beautiful styles that suited each individual bridesmaid. Thanks to Angela, my wedding makeup looked both beautiful and natural for the entire day. My friends and family complimented me throughout the night on how wonderful my makeup looked. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone wanting to look their best on their special day!
Angela hands down is one of the best make up artists! I reached out to her a little less than a year before my wedding for a trial after seeing high school friends use her on social media. During my trial she was such a sweetheart. She asked questions to get to know me and find out what I liked. Obviously my makeup was amazing and I booked her that week. I used her for my bridal shower as well and again loved my make up. She did a different look then the trial to try out colors for the wedding. Like the trial, my makeup stayed all night long. A week or so before my wedding in October, Angela reached out to get info on whose make up she would be doing doing and what time my photographer, videographer, and hair team were coming to put together a schedule. She was probably the only part I wasn’t worried about the day of. She arrived the minute she said she would and got to work. She brought Erica, who is an artist on her team to do half of the women and everyone Erica did absolutely loved their makeup. Both women were so refreshing and friendly and I enjoyed having them with me the morning of the wedding. Everyone getting married I recommend Angela and her amazing team and any time I need my make up professionally done I will always call on Angela. Another plus is she always reaches out the day after the event to see how everything went. Another example of how personable she is. A great recommendation for your big day!!
Angela was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day! She is professional, respectful, and thoughtful. She takes her time to truly listen to what you want for your big day and works her magic to make your dreams become reality. Another perk - each of Angela's looks are customized to the client she is working on - her skill set ranges from natural looks to Hollywood glam while enhancing your best features and using your eye color to create the perfect color palette. Angela is super knowledgeable about skin care and make up and can help create the best version of YOU without being over the top for your wedding day. All the women who got ready with me on my wedding day were in love with their makeup - and one of the best parts, our make up lasted ALL night! Angela helped me feel like the best version of myself on my wedding day - I will continue to use Angela for future events and will 1000% recommend her to everyone I know.
To say that I was impressed with Angela is an understatement! I used her for ALL my bridal events (engagement shoot, bridal shower and my wedding) and each time, I was complimented on how good my make-up looked. Angela is extremely professional, easy to work with and the nicest person you'll ever meet. I've already started to recommend her to everyone that I know and she'll be my go-to make-up artist for any future events. THANK YOU ANGELA. You are the absolute best :)
So much went wrong on the day of my wedding. Little things but they were still stressful. Angela's talent with makeup made up made my day so special, she was one of the things that went perfectly. I would recommend her to everyone. I cannot say the same for other vendors I used but Angela is simply the best. She is great with colors, always on time, and texts you updates and questions to make sure the getting ready portion of the day goes perfectly. Make sure to book her before she is booked up!
I would recommend Angela with 100% confidence to any future bride. Angela is professional, respectful, and extremely talented. Her work is flawless, which is no surprise considering the quality and care that she puts into her work. She and Fitore did wedding day makeup for me, my mother, and 6 bridesmaids-- all with different skin tones, skin types, and comfort levels with wearing makeup. Everyone was happy with how their makeup turned out and with how it lasted day and night. Any bride who wants to feel and look their best would be grateful to have Angela as part of their special day.
Angela is the best of the best. She is so incredibly talented and I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family. I can't thank her enough for making me feel like a princess on my engagement, shower and then wedding day (4.29.17). Seriously, I have never looked better thanks to her natural make-up and expertise. She surpassed all my hopes and expectations! The pictures came out gorgeous thanks to Angela's incredible skills! Angela, thank you for everything, I appreciate it more than you know!
Angela is a true professional & a master of makeup artistry. I have booked her for my June wedding and have thus far used her for my engagement party & for my engagement photoshoot. I received a ton of compliments from friends and family at my party, and I was so obsessed with my makeup from my e-shoot that I hardly wanted to take it off. Angela takes her time, and explains what she is going to do before she works her magic. She is prompt and quick in responding to emails/texts. On both occasions, I felt beautiful and comfortable once Angela was through, and I am so excited for her to beautify me on my big day!
I absolutely love Angela. She did my make-up for my brother's wedding. As of bridesmaid I was absolutely thrilled that she chose Angela to do our makeup. She was prompt on time and a complete perfectionist. She made sure that not just the bride but everyone a part of the wedding felt special and beautiful. No matter what look or idea that we wanted she was able to give that to us. I felt so beautiful and I can't thank her enough. She is such a doll to work with and I would use her for any wedding event in the future. Love her!!
Wow, the best ever is too say the least! Angela and her team not only made me feel special I looked my absolute best. Not to mention I looked gorgeous. A talented team I highly recommend.
Angela was a dream to work with on my wedding day. She came in early, fully prepared and ready to glam me up and my family. She was patient, professional and attentive to our requests. I am so glad I chose Angela to do my makeup on the most important day of my life! She had a huge variety of makeup and various shades that were perfect for me and my team to choose from. She was truly amazing and I highly recommend her!
Angela is by far the most talented make up artist around! In the past I have never been very impressed with the work that other artists have done on me but I can honestly say that I am beyond happy with what she has done! I can’t wait to have her do my wedding makeup! Don’t waste your time with other trials, book her ASAP!
Angela is AMAZING! From my trial, to my bridal shower and of course my wedding day, I was always blown away by Angela's professionalism, energy and skills! Each time I got my makeup done, I felt flawless and beautiful. She was able to accent my features and glam me up without making me not look like myself. Changing the look each time by blending different shades and techniques to match my outfits and skin shades. My makeup always lasted all day and night. On my wedding day, my bridal party and extended family were so happy with their makeup. Fitore was also excellent! Throughout the wedding planning process, Angela was always prompt with responses and appointments and offered suggestions/referrals for anything I needed. I will most definitely be using Angela again in the future.
Angela is the absolute best! From the initial trial to providing skincare and makeup tips before the big day, Angela was always in contact and available for anything that I needed. My makeup lasted throughout the whole day and night! My bridesmaids and mother were also extremely happy with their makeup and will definitely be using her in the future. I will be recommending Angela and her team to all of my friends. Thank you Angela for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day!
Simply couldn’t say enough about Angela! She was so great to work with. Very professional and easy while making appointments for my trial. Once I had the trial I knew I didn’t need to have anymore. She did such a unbelievable job. I have a baby face but she made me look and feel grown and beautiful! I still looked like myself but just my best self! My make up lasted the whole night. And my pictures came out amazing !! My bridesmaids got their makeup done by her and they looked and felt amazing. When they get married they will be using Angela too! Thanks again Angela your the best!!
Angela did my makeup on my Wedding Day,8/20/2017. She did an amazing job to say the least! She arrived early to make sure she had enough time. She's very well organized and knows what she's doing. I would recommend Angela to any Bride getting married; You won't be disappointed. For future events I will be using Angela to do my makeup. She is the best!! If I could give her more than 5 Stars I would. -Karina
I'm not even sure where to start because I am so thrilled with Angela for so many different reasons. I had two separate trials with Angela before my wedding to try different looks, and each time she listened to what I wanted as well as used her professional instincts to give me various looks to choose from. She did an amazing job at each trial, but when I finally did decide which look I wanted for my wedding, she went above and beyond anything I could have hoped for; she delivered and then some! I have never felt more beautiful or received more compliments than I did on the most important day of my life. Throughout the entire process of choosing my look and communicating with Angela back and forth leading up to my wedding day, she could not have been more accessible or professional. She made me feel comfortable from the very first time we met, and she really listened to me and didn't try to sway me away from how I envisioned myself looking or what I felt comfortable with. My wedding makeup was more beautiful than I ever could have hoped for, and Angela has for sure earned a lifelong client in me. She also did my mom's makeup for my wedding, and she too was beyond thrilled with the way she looked. Angela is the real deal, and if you want to look and feel your most beautiful for any occasion you may have, Angela is without question the way to go!! If you want one less thing to worry and stress over for your wedding or special occasion, book Angela and put your mind at ease that she will make you feel your most beautiful.
Angela was amazing to work with and she is an extremely talented artist! Angela and Erica were amazing on my wedding day and made me and my bridesmaids feel so beautiful. I highly recommend her.
Finding a makeup artist for an intimate Brooklyn wedding was daunting as hell for me... but i'm so glad i chose Angela!! I've worked with makeup artists on editorial shoots and after a few trials with different people i chose Angela because she completely understood my face/features, and gave me the exactl the "vintage timeless" look i wanted (it looked perfect in photos - so important ladies!!!). I did not have a bridal party but Angela also did my mum and sister's makeup and they both loved it - my mum was feeling herself more than I was. Angela was super organized and was so easy to work with for both my trial and on the day. She just "gets it" and I highly recommend her
I recently used Angela for my bridal shower and my May 28, 2017 wedding and she is absolutely amazing. She not only worked on my makeup but she did 6 bridesmaids, the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom! Given that we had such a large group of people getting ready on my big day, I was super worried and stressed about timing. Angela was so patient and even arranged to come early on the morning of to make sure that everything went according to schedule. Every single one of my girls looked fabulous and was so thrilled with how their makeup came out. One of my bridesmaids even ended up booking Angela for her own wedding! I can't give Angela enough compliments, she was such a pleasure to work with. Even leading up to the wedding, she gave me some skin and makeup recommendations so that I would be ready for my big day. My favorite part of my makeup was the lashes, but I also loved the way that she used purple in my eyeshadow to bring out some of the green in my eyes. And the highlighter she used looked awesome in my photos! My makeup stayed on all night, and I even kept it on for my wedding brunch the morning after. I have to say, my husband was nervous that I would have too much makeup on, he didn't want me to look like I had eight layers of cake on my face. But he was really happy with the end result, and so was I. Angela truly knows how to make a bride feel like a more beautiful version of themselves. I feel so lucky to have snagged her for my big day. Thank you so much Angela for making me feel my best on the happiest day of my life.

I have been in the bridal industry for 20 years and specialize in beautifying my brides on their most special day. From a very young age, it was obvious that make up was not just something I loved but something I felt a stronger inner connection to and complete passion for. It is the biggest form of flattery to be selected to be part of your brides most precious day in her life. I have a sincere passion for beauty, helping women feel beautiful, guide them with a skincare regimen and most importantly give them the desired look they had always imagined for their wedding day.
