Look and feel your best. My creative and artistic talents will enhance your natural beauty for your special day. You will look as dazzling in photographs as you will in person. I am a freelance certified makeup artist with over ten years professional experience in cosmetics and skin care.

My studio located on Long Island is where we perform a consultation and makeup trial. During this consultation phase we will discuss your makeup and skin care requirements. Many factors come into play during the consultation phase. The time of day, location of the occasion, gown colors and skin conditioning are all discussed. Our discussion helps to determine whether you will require a natural or a dramatic look. I look forward to hearing from you, please call 516-770-3007 or email mdmakeup@optonline.net. Read less

Because of Maria, our makeup remained flawless from 1pm until well after midnight! She is an outstanding makeup artist and an utter professional. The morning of my wedding, she arrived at my house bright and early to do my makeup, along with my mom's and sister's. She was prepared with what we had decided on during the trial months prior, and her cool and confident demeanor put us all at ease. She also worked so well with the hair stylist to make sure we were all ready in a timely fashion. I cannot recommend her enough!

Maria is amazing!! She arrived super early for my Saturday day wedding and was ready to go! She not only did an amazing job on my makeup but she saved my day because I was throwing up (nerves) and she knew just what to make (ginger tea) for me to get better and I quickly recovered. Maria is so easy going and will do exactly what you request for your special day. Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job on my makeup and my bridesmaids, mother and mother-in law. It couldn't have been better :) I know we will be working together again in the future!

What a great experience. We had a makeup trial prior to my wedding and on the day of my wedding she arrived on time and totally prepared. She patiently applied my makeup and then she did the makeup for my entire wedding party. We all looked fantastic and were complemented the entire day and night regarding our makeup.

I would like to say that Maria from "A Soft Touch by Maria", was outstanding and very responsive to my needs. We had a trial makeup session prior to my wedding date where we achieved the exact look I wanted. The day of my wedding she arrived on time and was totally prepared. She helped to relax me using her understanding of my event and her complete confidence in her abilities. I must add she has amazing airbrushing skills. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a professional makeup application.

She was patient and thorough with me regarding the style of makeup that was being applied. We met prior to my wedding and went through a trial makeup session where we spoke extensively about my look. I was extremely satisfied with the end result and would definitely recommend her to my friends and acquaintances.

Maria is the consummate professional. One month before my wedding I had a trial makeup session with her at her home in Long Island. She was so personable and made me feel very comfortable. She asked great questions about my skin and gave me tips on how to improve my skin quality before the wedding. I chose airbrushing for my makeup and she made me look so natural and seriously made me look 10 years younger. On the day of my wedding, she came on time to my home in Queens. She did my makeup and my maid of honor's makeup. (She uses Mac makeup - the best makeup!) We came out looking fabulous, like models! Her makeup photographed so beautifully and I received endless compliments about her work. I would highly recommend Maria to any bride!!! She is also reasonably priced!!!! Thank you so much Maria!!

Maria is an absolute professional and I highly recommend her. My wedding day was during an incredible heat wave - the temperature was 100 degrees. With Maria's perfect make up application, as well as airbrushing, nothing moved, nothing melted, and my make up looked just as fresh at the end of the night as it did first thing that day. Maria is the best.

Maria was such a pleasure to work with. I don't wear make up everyday and was nervous I wouldn't look like myself. She really listened to me and applied the make up perfectly!

I felt that it was really just an enhancement of all of my features. My bridesmaids also looked amazing, they were really happy with the whole experience as well! Read less

Maria was my makeup superhero :).It was 3 weeks until my wedding and my original makeup person fell through. Thankfully a friend of mine had used Maria for her wedding and told me to give her a call to see if she would be available. I am so happy that she WAS free for my wedding day. My makeup trial turned out amazing and on the day of the wedding she showed up to my house on time and finished my makeup within 45 minutes or so. The touchup kit she provided also really works (my wedding was at 3pm and reception started at 7pm). I was able to touch up my makeup and it looked great for the rest of the evening. All of my friends and relatives complimented me on how flawless it turned out and I looked like myself (not too much makeup). She is extremely easy to work with; she gives you her professional opinion but still allows you to have a say in the final look. I'm glad she convinced me to try the lashes; I didnt even feel them and they made my eyes look sooo glamourous. I would highly recommend using her services.

Maria was terrific! Not only was she professional, but also personal. It felt as though she was another one of my girls helping me get ready on my big day. From the trial to the actually day, she made me feel beautiful and comfortable. In doing the makeup of my grandmother, mom, matron of honor and my own, she aimed to please and certainly succeeded. In the midst of my final planning in the days before, I forgot to pick up my "eyelashes". However, Maria remained calm and came prepared with her own stash so I wouldn't be lacking in any way on my wedding! I would (and do) highly reccommend Maria for any event in which you want to feel gorgeous!

Maria did a phenomenal job on my bridal makeup and the makeup for my bridesmaids on my wedding day. She was always giving helpful advice on how to create the perfect wedding day look, being that I have no makeup expertise whatsoever. My makeup stayed on all day even without being touched up!!! I felt like I looked natural and beautiful and this was reflected in all the wonderful compliments my wedding guests gave to me. I would definitely recommend her to any bride who needs a makeup artist for the day!! Maria's makeup is perfection!!!

Maria was the uttmost proffessional and did an outstanding job on my makeup. She did exactly what I asked for and applied it the same way she did at my trial. She was willing to travel to my location as well. She even helped me get into my dress when my bridal attendant was late. I would definitely recommend her.

If your looking for a reliable, trustworthy professional makeup artist A Soft Touch by Maria is the way to go! Maria is amazing and her work is astonishing. I had my makeup done early afternoon for a 6:30pm wedding and my makeup lasted well past midnight! The day of my wedding she did not only my makeup but 4 of my bridesmaids, my mom, and she made my flower girl feel special as well. She was so cool, calm, and collected with all the nerves in the room that day and had us all ready to go with enough time for pictures before the limo arrived. I also had Maria by my side to touch up myself and all my girls before my reception she was truly truly amazing and my wedding pictures reflect a job well done! She is an absolute must have ladies

Maria is an absolutely dream to work with and will do a beautiful job on your make-up for your wedding. I was married 4 years ago this July and feel badly that I never wrote a review prior to now.
Maria sees the natural beauty in all women and takes the time to listen to your wants and needs to make you look even more beautiful on your special day.
For my wedding, Maria was prompt and not in a rush to get out. She worked exceptionally well with my bridesmaid's and even offered to do the make-up of an out of town guest not scheduled to get her make done.
I would absolutely without reservation recommend Maria to do your make-up for any special occasion. Definitely one of my best vendors from my wedding!

She did an absolutely gorgeous job. I was not too happy after my makeup trial and she ended up doing another one for free to make sure I was happy. She showed up on time 6am on the wedding day, I had actually overslept and she was patient with me. She did such a beautiful job and she often does makeup for actresses and soap opera stars. The makeup didn't run and stayed on all day and night long. I was very happy.

Maria is a sweetheart, a pleasure to work with and does beautiful work. I wanted a natural look for my wedding, since I almost never wear makeup and still wanted to look like myself, and Maria was definitely able to achieve this. My mom and my bridesmaids were all quite pleased with the work Maria did. She was very accessible by email and text leading up to the event, flexible as far as hours and location of wedding prep. She responded to my initial request for information quickly and relatively clearly. My comparisons are based on limited experience, but pricing seems to be quite in line with other makeup artist/beauty companies in the NYC area. At first, the slightly lower prices attracted me, but in the end, she costs the same as the more pricey vendors because she does push you into buying several of her products because you absolutely 'need' them. If you're used to buying professional makeup products, her prices are probably in line with those and reasonable, but if you're just looking for someone to do a good job with your makeup on wedding day, be prepared to stand your ground when offered several products both during the trial and on wedding day. Overall , we were pleased with the work she did; just be aware of the above if you're on a tight budget.
