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

Hiring Anabelle for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made while wedding planning (and anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows just how many decisions need to be made)! A friend of mine who got married before me recommended that I reach out to Anabelle to see if she was free on my wedding date to do makeup for myself and my bridal party and luckily she was free. As soon as I reached out to Anabelle and got a response I knew she would be great to work with. She is always prompt in her responses, and extremely kind. We set up a time to do a makeup trial. I wasn't sure what to expect when Anabelle came to my apartment to do the trial, but she was extremely patient, went through several different options with me, and worked to find the perfect makeup look for me that I would be comfortable with on my wedding date. I ended up booking Anabelle to do my makeup, my mom's makeup, mother in law's makeup, and 4 bridesmaids. She was amazing on the day of the wedding! Not only did she do an incredible job on everyones makeup, but she was a true friend and confidant. The day of my wedding was extremely hot (I got married in NYC in August) over 100 degrees! Of course, I decided that I had to do photos outside in Central Park for my first look. By the time I got to Central Park, I was a million degrees, I was wearing a very large heavy ball gown, and I was sweating like crazy. I was freaking out. Anabelle stayed calm, cool, and collected- touched up my makeup and went above and beyond to wipe me down all over (including my really gross and sweaty legs!) while we were standing outside for 30 minutes doing photos. When I went into the park for my first look she was the only one who came with me other than the photographer. Anabelle could sense that I was nervous and overwhelmed and she was really there for me not just as a makeup artist or someone I hired but as a true friend. I am so glad that I hired Anabelle, she is truly the best!

Anabelle was beyond amazing to work with. It's hard to find a person who is not just professional but is also pleasant to be around on the most important day of your life. Anabelle was all of that and more. She listened and worked with me on make up ideas and everything came out perfect! And brides remember, it's fine to know what you want but you gotta listen to make up artist's opinion. I listened to Anabelle and my make up stayed flawless all day long! (Besides wedding ceremony and reception we had 2,5 hour photo shoot in the park, in 86 degree weather!)

Anabelle is an amazing choice – from the trial to the wedding day I could not be more pleased.

She was extremely flexible and responsive to my schedule as well as my mother’s when my makeup trial was scheduled for the Saturday that snowstorm Juno hit the New York city last winter. Since my mother was leaving for Florida the next week and I wanted my mother to be able to come to the trial, Anabelle was able to squeeze me in on Friday night before the storm hit on Saturday and before my mom left for her trip. Her flexibility and ability to fit me in at such short notice was exceptional. She was very professional at the trial and we took several pictures to remember the look for the wedding. We discussed one change of a more neutral, earthy hue rather than pink hue on the eyes.

And when the wedding day came, WOW! The eyes were absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t have been happier. The makeup was so natural, light and of course, stunning. I bought the lip color to reapply throughout day and I also got quite a bit of use out of it on my honeymoon. The makeup held up in the heat of our summer outdoor wedding and people kept asking me how my makeup was lasting!

Anabelle’s team was very professional. Anabelle, and two others, completed makeup for mom, aunt, 6 bridesmaids, a flower girl and myself in 2 hours and ran perfectly on time. Anabelle was a pleasure to work with and will be an excellent choice.

Anabelle recently did the makeup for my daughters wedding. I can honestly say she was amazing from start to finish!! My daughter had 12 bridesmaids in her wedding party so there was a lot of coordination required between Anabelle and the hair stylists. Thankfully, Anabelle was there to take charge, scheduling everyone so that there was a timely flow. But more importantly Anabelle did a perfect and beautiful job on everyones makeup!! The Bride looked absolutely gorgeous and so natural. Everyone loved our makeup. It looked great both in person and in the pictures. We had Anabelle stay with us through the ceremony to touchup our makeup and that also was a great decision. I could not be happier that we used Anabelle and would definitely recommend her as she is incredibly professional & talented. No need to look any further..You found the BEST one here!!!

I can't say enough good things about Anabelle. She not only made me feel beautiful, she kept me calm and comfortable throughout the entire day. Anabelle always shows up early, is entirely responsive to your asks and doesn't at all shy away from changes. Her talent and demeanor are everything you'd want on your wedding day and any event that matters to you.

Anabelle did my makeup, as well as my mother, mother in law, sister, sister in law, and aunt for my wedding. All of us couldn't be happier with our results! She chose colors and product that worked perfectly with our coloring and skin type. I loved the lip color she used so much during my trial that I purchased it for my wedding! She is a true makeup professional and has made me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt before. Other than the fact that she is extremely professional, she is also very punctual, and one of the sweetest ladies! She is always on time with a smile on her face, and always had a genuine interest in me and my family/husband. She even helped calm my nerves when she did my makeup for my bridal shower! I can't wait to use her again for other occasions!!!!!

It was a pleasure having Anabelle as my makeup artist on my wedding day. I first met Anabelle when she was glamming up my best friend Stacey for her wedding, nearly a year before my own. While I had originally opted to do my own makeup that day, I quickly changed my mind after watching Anabelle work her magic. After receiving multiple compliments on my makeup at Stacey's wedding, I knew I had to hire Anabelle for my own big day. From working with me on my budget to making herself available to do my trial on the day of my bridal shower, to putting together a detailed schedule for my wedding day, Anabelle was extremely accommodating and professional throughout the entire process. My wedding day makeup came out absolutely amazing, and the girls in my bridal party who opted to have their makeup done by Anabelle were all very pleased with how their looks turned out as well. Aside from being a fabulous makeup artist, Anabelle is simply a great, fun person to be around. You can tell she really cares about her clients as she always strikes up a conversation while working and even makes an effort to stay in touch via social media and email afterwards. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed "The LaGuardia Experience" and hope I have the opportunity to use Anabelle's services again in the future!
