I've never loved anything more than to help a bride be transformed on the most important day of her life.

I am absolutely obsessed with anything related to the beauty and wedding industry! As cliche as it sounds, my love for the cosmetic industry began at a very early age. I decided to take that passion and turn it into giving glamour, fabulosity and "glossiness" to brides in the Tri-State area.

Gloss & Shadow is an on location makeup business where we conveniently travel to your location on your wedding day and make you look your absolute best!

From super natural, to the most dramatic I will custom create the wedding look of your dreams with a touch of Gloss on the side...

Should you have any questions on trials, available dates or pricing please feel free to contact me:

Adhari is AAAMMAAZZING!!!! She has done my makeup for a few occasions and I look fabulous each and every time!! I just show her what I'm wearing and let her work her magic. That's how much I trust her creativity and work!!
She is prompt with replying to emails and phone calls. Arrived and finished on time with out anyone feeling rushed. We had a great time conversing with her. She had TONS of makeup and everything was clean and organized!! Hands down would recommend her to friends and family (which I have and they are all just as satisfied) Can't wait for another event to get my makeup done!! Love her and her work!!

I would hands down recommend Adhari Edwards and Gloss and Shadow for anyone who needs make-up services. I have never had my make-up done professionally (except at one of those make-up and hair birthday parties when I was like ten years old) and the experience was great. I was a little nervous because I do not wear a lot of make-up on a day to day basis, usually just some powder and a little eyeshadow and lipstick, so getting my whole face done with eyelashes and the whole nine yards was a little nerve racking.

I showed Adhari a few pictures, and told her I wanted a more understated look, but definitely enough make-up to hold up to being photographed, and she nailed it! During the trial I made some suggestions for the eyelashes and eye shadow and she made the slight changes and I loved my make-up. My mother and one of my bridesmaids also got their make-up done and they loved it as well. I got so many compliments from guests at my wedding saying that my make-up was done beautifully, but that I still looked like myself even though I don't wear a lot of make-up usually. She nailed it and the make-up lasted beautifully all night even though I was a sweaty mess from dancing all night.

Adhari is professional and such a nice person. I found out my wedding venue was the same as hers so we had a lot to talk about. But most of all her make-up is fabulous and lasts! I would definitely recommend her services and will definitely contact her the next time I need my make-up done!

Adhari Edwards, hands down, is the best makeup artist anyone can have on their wedding day. My wedding was in the Long Beach Island area and she traveled to my location. She even traveled for my convenience to a central location for my makeup trial! She is beyond accommodating! Adhari and her assistant Grace were punctual and stayed on time throughout makeup applications on 13 people!! We all know how important a time table is for the wedding day. She did not short-change anyone with their time in the chair however. Every single one of my girls looked amazing! She brought out the beauty in them all. They all became glamorous versions of themselves. They loved how they looked! I have been a bridesmaid numerous times and have suffered through horrible makeup applications. Believe me, you and your girls will love the way you look! As far as my makeup, I was so very, very happy. Beyond the moon happy! I felt so gorgeous and glamorous. She made me look like a model in a magazine! I felt so very beautiful! My fiance', now husband, was concerned that I was not going to look like myself. Well, I have to happily say, when he saw me for the first time, he had tears of happiness in his eyes. He told me I was so beautiful and that he loved that I still looked like myself and Adhari had brought out all my best features. Plus, the best part is that the makeup lasted ALL DAY! I didn't got to bed until 4:30am that night and the makeup was still on! I was able to save the eyelashes and had fabulous eyes for my brunch the next morning! I got so many compliments on my makeup! My only regret is that I can't have Adhari do my makeup everyday!! You can tell that Adhari Edwards loves what she does because it comes out in her work. You can not go wrong if you hire her for your wedding! She will make you look like you have always dreamed. I know because she did it for me!

Adhari is without a doubt the best make-up person I've ever met. I am a person who does not wear a lot make-up, I had my make-up done elsewhere prior to my trial with Adhari. It was caked so heavy on my face I looked horrible so I was nervous. When she did my make-up it looked natural and I looked beautiful! I booked her immediately without having any other trials! On my wedding day, she arrived extra early to set up. She was so professional and managed to get everyone done in perfect time (even with some of my girls running late.) All my bridesmaids and my mom looked gorgeous and I could not have been happier!
I loved her so much, I used her again after my wedding day and will use her again when I need to.
I strongly recommend using Gloss and Shadow for your wedding day! You will not be disappointed.

Adhari was absolutely awesome!!! My makeup looked fantastic in person and in pictures. She was so sweet and kept me calm while I started to freak out a little in the makeup chair. :) I would recommend Adhari to anyone needing makeup for any special occasion. She took my input and then made the whole look really come together. My bridesmaids, mom, and grandma also had makeup done and everybody looked fantastic. Adhari is the way to go if you want a true professional doing your makeup for an event. She was on-time, professional, and fun. I 100% recommend her services. Thank you, Adhari!!!

She did my bridesmaids, my mother and myself all with time to spare and everyone looked absolutely beautiful!!!! I received so many compliments.

I ended up working with some crazy people I might not have worked with again for my wedding but Adhari was definitely not one of them. She was amazing. From the start, she was always available through email which was most convenient for me and helped me find a great stylist to do my hair as well. I was nervous about getting too made up and not having a good idea of what I wanted since I don't wear a lot of makeup but she knew exactly what would look good on me and I was so at ease after the trial. I only wish I had somewhere to go looking that gorgeous. She was very easy to work with and wanted to make me and all my ladies happy. My mom looked amazing and our makeup lasted all day and all night. All I needed was to touch up my lips and she gave me a new bottle of lip gloss to take with me. She even accommodated one of the bridesmaids who decided she wanted her makeup done at the last minute. I got so many comments about how beautiful I looked that day and I felt absolutely amazing. She really brought the whole look together and make me so calm and relaxed for those last few hours before the ceremony.

I was recommended to Adhari from my sister who was a bridesmaid of a friend and had her makeup done by her. My sister loved the makeup so much that she said that I needed to hire her for my wedding; and she was right. Adhari is so amazingly talented. My makeup was flawless and made me look gorgeous throughout my wedding night. I usually worry that my makeup would run off and look oily (since I have oily skin) but that wasn’t the case here. My skin was flawless! She was also very punctual (a plus!) and very professional. She made me feel calm before my ceremony. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family for our next event. She is a QUALITY makeup artist.
