A native New Yorker, Anabelle's makeup career evolved through various opportunities in the cosmetics industry epicenter. Upon graduating from Hofstra University in 1992, she assisted the Beauty and Fashion Manager of Ladies' Home Journal magazine. In 1997, Anabelle moved on to Lancôme as Coordinator to the Associate Vice President of skincare marketing. Simultaneously, she studied makeup at Manhattan’s Learning Institute for Beauty Sciences.

In 1999, she embarked on her career as a Makeup Artist with the prestigious Laura Geller Makeup Studio in Manhattan. Anabelle ascended the ranks to become one of Laura's top artists for high-profile weddings and events. The latter included fashion shows, publicity events for Playboy magazine, and a guest appearance on the Montel Williams make-over episode. In addition, she appeared on camera as Laura Geller’s primary assistant during several of Laura’s QVC home-shopping showcases, which were hugely successful.

In June 2003, Anabelle launched her own freelance makeup business, Makeup by Anabelle LaGuardia. She continues to establish a loyal following of brides, socialites and photographers. Anabelle also serves as a consulting Makeup Artist to Lancôme’s Education Department, as well as their National Artistic Director, for the production of training videos.

Anabelle’s insight and advice, regarding current trends, is regularly sought after by highly circulated publications such as AM New York and The New York Observer. More recently, she has appeared on Lifetime TV’s Get Married program where she offered advice to brides on makeup for their weddings. Since January of 2008, Anabelle has been listed in the exclusive makeup directory for New York Magazine’s wedding issue. Read less

If you are looking for a sure thing book Anabelle LaGuardia to do your makeup for your wedding. I actually met Anabelle in 2009 when I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding --Anabelle did my makeup and I was so happy with it then, that when I got engaged five years later, I immediately booked her. I'm lucky I did because her work has only gotten better. Not only is she EXTREMELY TALENTED with many years of experience but she is also calm, kind, patient, reliable, and flexible. I really cannot say enough good things about her. During your makeup trial she will honor your preferences but, without being pushy, will be honest with you if she thinks something needs adjusting and is good at explaining why. Trust her because she really has an eye and knows what will work on you. On your wedding day the getting ready process will be a breeze if she is there and most importantly you will look and feel stunning. She books quickly so don't wait too long to contact her!

I used Anabelle's makeup services for my wedding on October 5th. Anabelle was very professional and did a great job with our makeup. We were all very happy with our final look! My makeup lasted through to the end of the night and I received many compliments! Anabelle also arrived earlier than we had said, and she was ready to start right away! Very pleasant to deal with! I will definitely be recommending Anabelle to all my family and friends! Thank you Anabelle!

I had an amazing experience with Anabelle. When she did our makeup for my sister-in-law's wedding, I knew I had to hire her for my wedding. Anabelle does a consultation with you before your wedding, and in my case, she did my consultation for my bridal shower. My makeup at my shower came out really great and worked well with my look that day. From the day you first speak to her until long after your wedding, Anabelle is extremely professional and organized. She contacted me before the wedding in order to put together a makeup schedule for my entire bridal party and was sensitive to all of our crazy scheduling requests. She showed up on time and knows exactly how much time she requires given the number of people. She will discuss with you exactly what you want your look to be and will do the same for your entire bridal party. She also works well with other hired stylists (i.e: hairstylists). Anabelle's assistant Hope was just as great and made all of my bridesmaids look beautiful. She used both airbrush and regular makeup on us and adapted what she used based on each girl's skin type. One of the best things about Anabelle is that leaving her makeup chair doesn't mean she's finished with you. She's willing to touch you up as much as you request and if you pay a little extra, she'll follow you around during your photos up until the ceremony in order to do touch-ups. This was pivotal given the fact that we took photos outside and my wedding day was probably one of the most humid days of the summer. My makeup stayed on the entire night and I had zero issues, which was a small miracle given how sensitive my skin typically is. I would highly recommend Anabelle.

I was so thrilled with Anabelle’s work for my wedding day – from the moment we first engaged with her she was extremely professional, positive and very responsive over email. She took diligent notes and photos after my trial to document every detail. She also put together an organized day of hair/makeup schedule to guide our preparations. On the big day, she arrived early and did makeup for myself, my mom, the groom’s mom and my four bridesmaids effortlessly. Everyone looked like a more beautiful and radiant version of themselves, which is exactly what we were going for. She listened to my vision and executed it flawlessly – I had the natural glow I was hoping for and pearlescent highlights that worked perfectly with my dress. I would highly recommend Anabelle for any special occasion makeup in Westchester or NYC!

Anabelle was recommended to me by my local makeup artist as I was travelling downstate for an NPC Bikini show in Westchester County. Anabelle was very flexible in scheduling the weeks prior to the show. Upon her arrival she was very bubbly and personable; she made me feel very comfortable throughout our session. I gave Anabelle some ideas of what I would like my makeup to look like and she took it to a whole new level! I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome! I will most definitely use Anabelle's wonderful services again when I return for my next show!

Anabelle is a superbly talented make-up artist. She had first done my make-up a few years back for my sisters wedding. I absolutely loved it, so when it came time for my own wedding...I knew just who to call. I booked right away for myself, my two sisters, and my mother.
Anabelle really listens when you describe what you want. I wanted to look "glam", without looking overly made-up. The airbrushing was flawless! It matched my skin tone perfectly and had a dewy finish. I wanted my eyes to be the main focus...and they were! Anabelle created a gorgeous smoky brown eye with tons of lashes! The individual lashes that she used looked both natural and glam! (such a difference from the strips of lashes I had used in the past).
My main concern was that we were scheduled to start make-up super early in the morning, and the wedding wasn't going to be until 8 pm....the photos weren't even scheduled until 4ish. I was worried that with the June humidity, my make-up would melt. It seriously did not budge all night long! (I'm embarrassed to say that I actually passed out that night around 4am with my make-up still on! I know that's a big no-no...but when I woke up, it was still perfect!)
I couldn't have been happier with my wedding day make-up! My family and friends will continue to turn to Anabelle for all our major events!

I have used Annabelle for a couple of occasions now . From the first time I used her for one of my best friends weddings I knew when I was to get married I found my girl . I even used her for my engagement shoot ! She is very professional and very friendly . She makes you feel at ease as soon as you start talking to her . Her work is amazing I can't even explain how great she does . I told her I wanted my makeup to pop in a natural way for my wedding and she did exactly that . I received so many complaints from everyone . My husband always says how great of a job she does and he rarely likes makeup . She even did family members and my bridal party everyone looked beautiful !! Everyone was just perfect. I have used many makeup artists but none compare to Annabelle . Do not hesitate to contact her you won't be sorry with the outcome . I can't wait for another event to arise so I can use her again . Thank you so much again for everything .. Xoxo
