Of all the stressors that come along with planning a wedding, not looking and feeling your best is probably fear #1. Luckily, there's SB Beauty. Right off the bat I knew booking with Sharon was the right choice. She took the time out of her (ve...
ry!) busy schedule to get to know me and get a sense of exactly what I wanted in terms of beauty services. I panicked right before meeting her at my trial because I was having a horrific breakout. Almost instantly I knew I had nothing to worry about, and most importantly I felt refreshingly free of judgement. Dani, my hairstylist, replicated my inspo photos to a t--she also happened to be the sweetest human ever. On the wedding day, Sharon and her team arrived promptly and kept us right on track the whole morning. We had 11 total people for both hair and makeup to get through, and not once did anyone feel rushed despite being on a strict schedule. Shout out to Ashley and Patrina who made my bridesmaids look absolutely flawless!! I can't thank SB Beauty enough for helping me feel like an elevated version of myself on the happiest day of my life. PLUS, the next day I woke up and it somehow still looked like my makeup was freshly done and my hair remained LUSH AF--despite having been intermittently crying tears of joy and dancing all night long. THANK YOU SB BEAUTY!!!

I am already thinking of the next occasion where I can work with Sharon again. She is truly so talented! I was nervous before meeting her, as I’ve had experiences where I’ve asked for natural makeup and walked away with a heavy look. But Sharon...
is a true master of her craft. She asked questions, listened, and offered guidance. I’ve never been so happy with my makeup!! I felt like the best version of myself, and it shows in all our pictures. Sharon is also extremely organized. She uses separate brushes for every person and leaves you with a little kit that includes your lip color to reapply. I highly recommend Sharon. My 2 bridesmaids, mom, and husband’s mom also loved their makeup. I only wish I could replicate what she does!

ife. For my wedding, I wanted to have a natural, subtle look. Sharon interpreted that perfectly and made me feel "made up" without making me feel like a different person.
Hair: I have a shag haircut which I love, but which I fully recognize doesn't always lend itself to updos. Sharon was able to give me the sleek, refined updo without a shellac of hairspray and painful pins :) She also was able to incorporate some last minute, kind of heavy, hair accessories that I truly never thought my hair could handle :)
In short - highly recommend! Loved my experience!

Sharon was one of the best vendor decisions I made and I truly recommend her!

Sharon was an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment I first contacted her for a trial through my wedding day.
The trial was easy to set up. We found a weekend morning in February to meet up at her Lower East Side space, where Jenna j...
oined us to work on my hair. It looked perfect--it was exactly what I envisioned. Sharon and Jenna were sure to take lots of pictures so they could recreate the look seven months later.
On my wedding day, we had Sharon, Jenna and one other person on hair for six people (including me) getting makeup done and seven people (including me) for hair. The team had military precision. Seriously, not a single person ran over. Even the photographer was impressed by how spot on time everything was!
Also, Sharon was seriously a miracle worker when it came to making sure my makeup lasted all night. I danced up a storm, and at one point I literally had beads of sweat on my face, but at the end of the night, I still looked awesome (in my humble opinion...haha). And even when we were getting ready, when my dad saw me in my dress, he started crying and so then I started crying! But Sharon was right there with q-tips to save her masterpiece and to keep the tears from running down my face.
If you are looking for someone to create your perfect wedding makeup - look no further. Sharon has you covered.

In three words: “Sharon is fantastic!” Not only she is professional and so very good at what she does, she is energetic, fun and the sweetest!

It was a great process to work together and create what it turned out to be my final look. It was so comforting to know she was there for me. She listened!! I knew it was important for her to know what I wanted, she looked thoroughly at the inspirational pictures I had. She took the time to get to know me and my style better as well. She made sure I felt comfortable and beautiful! The whole process was perfect! Sharon used only very good products and she knew what she was doing with all those brushes! I was impressed.
On the wedding day, everything went super smoothly! We started early enough so my mother and I where all happy and done right on time with no stress at all! I felt like a princess. Before she left, she gave me a kit to do some touch ups on my make up during the party.

Skype and illustrative photo examples. I had selected my specific styles and shared these with Sharon and she really made it all happen on the day!
The approach & service offered was 'yourself just better' and this was really true - the make up was so natural and lasted all day.

After the trial Sharon took my opinion seriously - I was adamant about airbrush and knew I'd need false eyelashes.

On my wedding day Sharon kept the vibe laid-back, and not only did my makeup look exquisite, but it felt great! I felt gorgeous and comfortable and not like I was wearing globs of anything on my face. I'm a compulsive powderer, and I didn't have to think about my makeup or touch my face once over the course of very, very long night of partying. Whatever magic Sharon worked, I'm so glad I trusted her for the biggest day of my life.
