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

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

The night before my wedding at 2AM my hairdresser called me to tell me he had salmonella. Not only did Anabelle do the AMAZING makeup job, but she even offered to come in early to help do my hair, which also came out amazing. I cannot imagine using anyone else. I HIGHLY recommend her for your next event.

Anabelle was wonderful to work with. As the mother of the bride I was very nervous about all of the details and especially the day of. My daughter had 12 people in the bridal party. Not only was she reliable and personable through the whole process, but she and her staff made all of us look absolutely beautiful and natural at the same time. I had comments the entire night about how fabulous my makeup looked, as did my daughter and her bridal party. I would recommend Anabelle 100% and use her for any future occasions.

Anabelle is an amazing makeup artist!! I was referred to her by another great makeup artist who was unavailable on my wedding day. I'm so glad Anabelle was available!! She did makeup for myself, my mom and my aunt and it looked gorgeous. It lasted all night and still looked flawless. She was one of the best wedding vendors I worked with. She was just perfect for me from my first email exchange with her, to my makeup trial 3 months ago to the beautiful wedding day makeup. I felt so beautiful and stunning and my makeup looked fantastic in my photographs! Beyond anything I had expected. Please hire Anabelle!! She's a talented and true professional. I got married in NYC on May 3, 2014. Anabelle arrived early at my prep hotel and made me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend Anabelle. If I could give her 10 stars, I absolutely would!! Thank you Anabelle for making my wedding day so special.

Anabelle is an AMAZING makeup artist! Not only my makeup for my wedding back in April but also all of my bridesmaids. She did a FABULOUS job on all of us and I felt absolutely gorgeous all day long! She was very prompt about timing and also communicated with my Wedding Corrdinator about what she would need time wise for all of us to be done without be rushed. She is a true professional in all aspects of her business as well as a wonderful person!

I chose Anabelle as my wedding makeup artist because of her personality as well as her talent. She is easy to work with and able to go with the flow, which is really important on what can be a stressful day. Her work is professional and beautiful, and she helps you make flattering choices, even if you don't happen to know a lot about makeup. I had decided to have a makeup trial before my actual wedding day and loved the look from the trial. However, between the trial and the wedding day, I changed my mind about what I wanted, and decided to tone down the look a little bit, since I was being married on a Sunday afternoon. I did not schedule another trial, but I communicated the changes I wanted to Anabelle via email. On my wedding day, Anabelle did exactly what I wanted. I was thrilled with the look. it was natural and beautiful, and even made me look younger! I want to add that I had food poisoning three days before my wedding, and thanks to the amazing makeup job, you couldn't even tell. My mom and bridesmaids were also very happy with their makeup. I would recommend Anabelle to any bride who wants to look stunning and have a great experience with a friendly and thoughtful makeup artist.

I was lucky enough to have been recommended Anabelle for my wedding day makeup by a friend. I am so thrilled that she was part of my big day. From the moment I met her at my trial her professionalism and talent was apparent. Anabelle was a calming presence throughout my wedding day from the makeup application in the morning and for many hours during touchups and photos. Her makeup is true art and I have never felt more stunning. She knew exactly how to make me look glamorous but still let me look like me. My mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and bridesmaids looked amazing too!

I can't say enough good things about Anabelle. She did the makeup for my sisters wedding so when I got engaged I knew just who to hire. She did my makeup as well as my 5 bridesmaids and my mother. Not only did she get everyone done on time, everyone looked fabulous! My bridesmaids all look like models with flawless faces. Anabelle was not only easy to work with on the day of my wedding but she was fantastic to work with in the days leading up to my wedding. Very organized and a true artist. Highly recommend! My makeup lasted all night long and I felt amazing thanks to her!

She made my eyes beautiful, my skin flawless and gave me a beautiful glow....and I still looked like myself and felt natural. The makeup looked incredible in pictures and best of all, not only did it last all night, but it looked perfect the next morning and I didn't have to touch it for brunch :)

Anabelle is talented and gifted and above all, such a sweet, kind and patient person - it was a pleasure spending my day with her! She is the best!!

Anabelle is an experienced and talented make up artist. She accommodated all of the requests and needs of my bridal party with ease. Several of my friends never wear make-up and wanted very natural looking enhancement. Anabelle delivered. Others wanted dramatic bold looks, also delivered. My makeup was also fabulous. We had done a trial and she incorporated my few requests and modifications no problem. In addition to providing excellent quality service in terms of makeup application, she demonstrated a high level of professionalism working with my other vendors. She was organized and flexible on scheduling. She was able to work on my make up at the same time as my hair stylist was working on my hair when it turned out he needed more time to do that. Finally, Anabelle has a charming and calm personality, just the right kind of person to have with you on a hectic day. She is go with the flow and just a joy to be around.

As the mother of the bride, I have nothing but extremely positive things to say about Anabelle LaGuardia. My first impression of Anabelle was how timely and efficient she was; always responding to my phone calls, emails very quickly. During our first interaction, we spoke on the phone for close to an hour going over each detail in the process. By the end of the conversation, she had answered all of my questions, addressed all of my concerns, and I knew exactly what to expect for the bride, and the other 11 ladies who were having their makeup done. She did an absolutely wonderful job. She and her assistant Hope arrived right on time and ready to go. She kept on time and worked hard while she was there. She listened to what each person wanted and made sure they all felt great! Everyone looked absolutely amazing. She is so passionate about her business/profession as a makeup artist as well as her brides and the whole wedding party. Watching Anabelle at work, doing what she loves best, is like watching an artist create a masterpiece! Her infectious, upbeat personality make her a pleasure to work with. I am so thankful we had Anabelle do everyone's makeup. We have gotten some of our preview pictures back and everyone looks great! The makeup looks beautiful, shows the day was special, but no one looks "overdone" with makeup. It looks perfect. I would recommend her to anyone!

I cannot possibly recommend Anabelle highly enough! She is amazing. From day 1, she was incredibly responsive and prompt, and that carried all the way through the day-of -- she was either on-time or ahead of the schedule she'd provided for the entire day.

As for the makeup itself -- fantastic. I had 5 bridesmaids of 3 different races, and she made every single one of them look perfect without missing a beat. They all looked beautiful, from the moment the makeup went on through the afterparty. My own makeup looked amazing and stayed on all night.

Thanks, Anabelle!

She is not only a talented makeup artist but she is also professional and accommodating, qualities which help make the bridal experience that much more enjoyable! With Hope's help our bridal party, mothers, and grandmothers looked fabulous and their makeup lasted all night! She even stayed until minutes before we walked down the aisle, making sure everyone was perfect. I would refer Anabelle's services to anyone and will absolutely be calling upon her myself for things in the future. She helped make my day wonderful and anyone would be lucky to work with her on their special day!

Let me start off by saying that Anabelle is an incredible makeup artist. That being said, I was looking on Facebook at my friend photos from their wedding day and I fell in love with the way a friend of mine had her makeup done. She recommended Anabelle and told me that I would be beyond happy with the results. Thank god I stumbled upon those pictures because she was everything I could've hoped for in a makeup artist. Both my friends and family were extremely happy with their makeup on the day of my wedding. I surprised Anabelle with a picture from a magazine of what I wanted my makeup to look like that day and she was able to pull it off perfectly. She went above and beyond to make me look perfect and exactly how I wanted. Not only that, my makeup lasted the entire night!!! I will 100% use her again for a special event and have since recommended her to many of my friends for their special day. She is the best!!!

I felt very comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process. Anabelle was great to work with: very responsive prior to my wedding day, punctual the day of, and flexible enough to squeeze my sister in when she decided to have her makeup done at the last minute. Anabelle is very talented and professional.

After getting engaged, I started researching make- up artists right away. I came across the reviews for Anabelle. 5 stars across the board WOW. Equally as important was what the brides said about Anabelle's kindness and professionalism. I am the type that needs to feel comfortable right away and needs to know that my day is important to the vendors I chose. In the fall, my fiance and I scheduled our engagement photo shoot in Central park and decided I would do my trial with Anabelle that day. Anabelle responded to my inquiry to set up my trial RIGHT AWAY! The big day came and after just a few minutes with Anabelle, I could tell that she "got me." She understood what I was looking for and worked her magic. I was thrilled with my make- up and my fiance was too. He's a tough critic! On that note, Anabelle TRULY wants you to love your make up and is willing and happy to make any adjustments you may want and does NOT make you feel awkward about it. It's a once in a lifetime day and she wants you to feel perfect! Needless to say, Anabelle was my choice for our wedding and it was an easy decision! From the time I first booked Anabelle, she was so professional, committed and engaging. She even took the reigns to coordinate all my girls between her and my hair stylist! One less thing the bride had to do! The day of the wedding was executed flawlessly and Anabelle made each and every one of us beautiful. I think it was 8 in total! All by herself! These are not easy woman to please! Our guests used words such as "Stunning" and "Radiant" so often! Even after a VERY long day Anabelle headed over to my venue through the streets of Manhattan to touch me up after my photos! My make up stayed perfectly through out all the hugs, kisses and dancing the night away! If you are looking for a make up artists with incredible talent, a smile on her face and that truly cares about you as a bride, Anabelle is perfect for you. I will continue to use Anabelle for many years to come!

I thoroughly recommend Anabelle LaGuardia for make-up, she's brilliant! I had a practice run, which I would highly recommend. She listened to all my comments and recommended colors based on a look that I wanted to achieve, and that she knew would look great. Her products and colors were the best.

She was extremely professional in putting together a schedule on the actual day, and arrived right on time. She was relaxed, professional and cool to hang out with.;

Most importantly, my make-up looked fresh, bright, uplifting, clean, really beautiful, and lasted throughout the night. I looked like me at my absolute best.

I rarely give a five star review for anything, be it services or a restaurant, but Anabelle was absolutely phenomenal. I was married the weekend after Hurricane Sandy at a venue on Long Island which had lost power, subsequently leaving us to get ready in the freezing cold.

Anabelle worked her magic on my bridesmaids and my mom, making us all feel beautiful - even though most of us had been without power and were exhausted. The bags under our eyes were invisible by the time that she was done with us - no easy feat, and we all look fantastic.

Anabelle is worth her weight in gold, and I would recommend her a million times over.

Anabelle did my makeup for both my engagment party and wedding. Both were held at upscale venues so I didn't want to look over done or get that shiny face look that we ladies sometimes get in pictures. Anabelle took her time and took her work seriously. I have very sensitive eyes and her eye make up did not irritate me. On my wedding day I got a huge pimple that was raised - i wanted to cry - she was able to cover it up and I can't even see it in my pictures. Best part is that she left my mom ( who doesn't speak English ) speechless. My mother always finds something wrong in people's work but Anabelle nailed it . I kept her all day / night, she did touch ups during photos , before cermony , after cermony. I cried during the chuppah and def needed a touch up. If you can afford to keep her around all day - do so, you won't regret it

I have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day and Anabelle was definitely a huge help! I had a really hard time deciding on make up because I rarely wear any. I had two trials with another company before Anabelle and I was left disappointed. I felt like I was wearing too much. It seemed unnatural and uncomfortable. One of my bridesmaids recommended Anabelle and I'm really glad I took my friend's advice!

My wedding day make up was exactly what I wanted and didn't look overdone. I felt confident and beautiful and my make up lasted all day! Anabelle also did make up for my sister and mother. She really made my sister,(my Maid of Honor) feel pretty and helped calm her nerves. Even my husband commented on our make up and that's not something he normally pays attention to. He said he knew he was in trouble when he saw how good my sister looked, so he was really going to cry when he saw me all done up and walking down the aisle for the first time!

Thank you Anabelle for helping to make my wedding perfect!

Anabelle is fantastic! She did my make-up and the make-up for my sister and mother for my October wedding. We didn't have time for a trial, but I felt totally at ease with Anabelle. The make-up was beautiful and very natural. She is not only an incredibly talented make-up artist, but a great person. I truly enjoyed having her at the hotel doing make-up while we were all getting ready. She's also incredibly professional and responsive (responding to emails within a minute or two usually).

Anabelle did an incredible job on my wedding makeup. She was great to work with, and was open to any adjustments I wanted to make after our trial. She wants everyone to be happy with the way they look, and she definitely achieved that. Anabelle, along with Hope, also did the makeup for my bridal party, and everyone not only looked beautiful, but felt beautiful. She has a very natural approach, and enhances each person's features. She definitely does not overdo it, and makes you look like a better version of yourself. The eyelashes and airbrushing are amazing!!! Anabelle was also very easy to communicate with through email during the time leading up to my wedding. I have already recommended her and will continue to give her information to other brides!

Anabelle LaGuardia. I don't know where to start on how amazing you are. I read amazing reviews and booked my trial right away. I had my first and ONLY trial for my wedding.
When you first meet Anabelle you feel like you've been friends forever. She listens to what you want and is super accommodating. During my trial she just made me feel so comfortable . I came home and showed my husband and that's when I knew she NAILED it!! I couldn't wait for her to do my makeup the day of my wedding.
I had Anabelle until my ceremony started. She was with me and my bridal party for 9 hours!!! She was so calm during my pictures with my bridal party..touching us up throughout the day until the moment I walked down the aisle. We all felt like movie stars!!!
She is such a sweetheart with a calming presence and puts you at ease.
Anabelle is also very reliable. She keeps in contact with you up until your wedding day, arrives early, and of course makes you look BEAUTIFUL!!!
Thank you Anabelle! Your work is AMAZING and so are you!!!

Anabelle was fantastic ! I am pretty much a pain in the ass when it comes to makeup.. I had 2 trials before Anabelle and was pretty disappointed. I then contacted Anabelle and she got the look I was going for immediately ! She is truly talented at her craft, kind and professional. Every future bride I know always tells me how great my makeup was and they always want to know who did such beautiful work ! I can't recommend her enough ! If I ever have an important event again, I'll be sure to call you Anabelle !!

I recommend Anabelle (along with her amazing co-makeup artist Hope) wholeheartedly for all weddings or any other special events! Anabelle and Hope did both my makeup and makeup for all nine of my bridesmaids on my wedding day and everyone looked perfect! Not only is Anabelle incredibly talented but she is also extremely warm, personable, and an overall pleasure to work with. I had never gotten my makeup professionally done before and Anabelle introduced me to the wonderful world of individual false eyelashes and airbrush foundation, which gave way to a flawless yet natural look on my wedding day. She will make sure you look amazing and more importantly, make sure that you love how you look!

I could not have been happier with the services that Anabelle provided for my wedding. She not only did an incredible job on my own makeup, but she (and Hope) also did the makeup for my bridal party and everyone looked beautiful - perfect, even.. She has the amazing talent of taking peoples' best features and accentuating/highlighting them, all while keeping a special, more natural look - making sure that no one looks overdone. She is a pleasure to work with (she has done my makeup for multiple occasions now) and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a makeup artist for their special day.

Anabelle did a beautiful job on my wedding day makeup - she made my skin look perfect. I looked like a better version of myself - my makeup looked natural and not overdone.

I can\'t say enough good things about Anabelle. She did the makeup for myself, my mom, 3 bridesmaids, and my rabbi for my wedding on 5/12/12. Everyone looked stunning! She was on time, and followed us to the venue for touch-ups. She even let me eat lunch while she was doing my makeup! Almost as important, communication with Anabelle in the time leading up to the wedding was always prompt and timely. Very, very highly recommended.

Anabelle LaGuardia was the makeup artist for my daughter's wedding on May 5th 2012. The wedding party was large. There were 9 bridesmaids and 2 junior bridesmaid and the bride and the mother of the bride(me) so she did bring an assistant. Anabelle took care of me, the maid of honor and the bride. Everything worked calmly and with utter professionalism. My daughter never in her life looked as beautiful as she did that day. She never wears makeup so I was a bit worried. Anabelle did just the right amount and I will cherish the wedding pictures forever. I highly recommend her.

AMAZING!!! My wedding makeup was breathtaking. Anabelle has such talent, along with professionalism. She is the only one I would trust to do my makeup on such an important day. She listens to the wants of her clients while combining her expertise. The makeup feels so natural and light, lasting all night without any touch-ups! I never once worried about the timing or organization of makeup for my wedding day. Anabelle seamlessly coordinated makeup for my six bridesmaids, mother, and myself. She is a great person to be around with her warm smile and great sense of humor. At a time that can get chaotic, she brings a sense of calm. The compliments we received on our makeup were countless. I also have to say, somehow Anabelle has the answer to any question, weather it be makeup/beauty oriented, or just advice.

Anabelle was amazing at listening to exactly what I wanted, and I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Everyones makeup was perfect throughout the entire day and night and I've received a million compliments on how beautiful my entire bridal party and my makeup was. I can't thank Anabelle enough- she was incredible to work with and I've already recommended her to friends!

Anabelle did my makeup for my wedding, along with my mom's and my sister's. We were a range of ages (obviously) but also have very different coloring and styles. She really nailed the look I was going for after one trial and was able to make my mom and sister look great on the first try. She was so responsive and proactive that I never worried once about her showing up on time and being anything other than a professional.
One thing I did not think about until that morning was how important it is to get along with your vendors. You spend a lot of time with them at a very stressful, emotional time. Anabelle has a great attitude and is positive in a very genuine way. It was a pleasure to have her there in the middle of the whirlwind.

Anabelle did a beautiful job on my, my mother in law's and my bridesmaid's makeup. Everyone looked fantastic and was thrilled with the end result.
I had already done a few makeup trials when I met with Anabelle for the first time and was able to give her several specific examples of things I did or did not want as part of my look.
For example, in a previous makeup application, the makeup was caked on so thickly that I could see several fine lines on my forehead and undereye area. I expressed this concern to Anabelle and when she was done doing my makeup, it was smooth and looked beautiful - no wrinkles!
She is very thorough, professional and will help create the look that you want. Before we met the first time, she asked me to send over pictures of my previous makeup trials with commentary on what I did or didn't like, which helped us create the perfect look for my wedding!
I was thrilled with her work. My makeup looked beautiful all day and night and the pictures turned out gorgeous as well. I would definitely recommend Anabelle to any bride who wants to look and feel beautiful on her wedding day!

Anabelle is the best! She's the sweetest, most accommodating, and a true artist. Her technique leaves you looking like the most beautiful version of yourself, not overdone. Unlike some other makeup artists, she applies individual lashes which makes a big difference in comfort and appearance, and if you have a preference that may not have been her first choice, she'll still deliver. Anabelle helped me, my mom, and two bridesmaids look flawless on my wedding day! Our looks lasted from early in the morning to early the next morning for the after party! I hope I have an occasion to call her and get so dolled up again. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

I was about a month away from my wedding date and was without a make up artist. I found Anabelle through New York magazines Wedding featured make up artist's. Anabelle was the only person who returned my phone call promptly, which impressed me from the start. Her professionalism and warm personality put me at ease right away, I knew that I wanted to work with her. Anabelle has a great color sense she was able to match color tones that brought out the best features in my face. What I loved best was that she provided eye lash enhancements as well as spray tan make up to help blend my complexion. The make up was light and airy and lasted well over 6 hours. Anabelle also has this great calming confidence that helps keep the morning of wedding day stress fun and relaxing. She did a beautiful job on my two sisters, my mother and me. All our guests complimented how beautiful and natural we all looked. I would highly recommend Anabelle and I look forward to working with her again.

Anabelle showed great range in doing makeup for our wedding. She did some more dramatic and fun looks for my friends and some spot on more subtle looks for moms and me. Overall, I think she was a great read of people, and we all loved our looks, which definitely lasted all day and night. She's also a very easy-going personality and very responsive. She made it easy to do a trial, meeting me in the city after work. As more people accepted to do makeup, she updated my contract without any fuss. I would definitely recommend her and wish her well next wedding season!

I would recommend Anabelle to any soon-to-be bride or anyone who wants their makeup done for a special event. She is incredibly talented and professional and did a phenomenal job with my wedding in northern NJ in August. She also did the makeup for multiple bridesmaids, my mom and my mother-in-law, all of whom loved their makeup (which stayed put throughout the very long day, I might add!).

She was the consumate professional and managed to stay calm amidst the pre-wedding chaos at my parents' house (photographer, hair stylist, wedding party, and multiple family members all running around).

I absolutely LOVED my makeup and felt beautiful throughout the entire day. I had a wonderful experience with the whole process from my initial trial to my wedding day. Anabelle made it fun, easy and completely stress-free and I was so thrilled with the results.

I can't say enough good things about Anabelle. During our consultation, she listened to exactly what I wanted (fresh, light, peachy tones) and I walked away very happy and excited for the wedding day.

The day of the wedding, she was on time and was very flexible being that our bridal suite didn't have adequate light, she had to set up shop downstairs of venue and didn't mind at all, even when people were trying to sneak peeks. But, this is really how she WOWed me. The morning of my wedding day, I woke up and noticed a blemish appearing on the side of my mouth... I started stressing out and it was getting bigger and bigger and really bothering me. Worst timing ever. I was so upset (which didn't help). Well, Anabelle calmly told me not to worry about it, she would take care of it. And she DID. She airbrushed right over it, made sure that it was adequately covered, and when I got back upstairs, it was like it was never there! I felt so much better and my anxiety totally went away. My pictures came out gorgeous and exactly how I wanted to look. I couldn't have done it without Anabelle. My bridesmaids also came out gorgeous and loved her.

I'm working with her on another photo shoot in a couple of weeks because I believe in her work and I know she will do the job and more. I guarantee you will not be disappointed if you book Anabelle!

Anabelle is a superstar! In addition to providing incredible make-up for myself and my family, her flexibility and knowledge saved the day! The day of the wedding, Anabelle came to my apartment to do make-up for myself and three others in the wedding. During the last touch-ups, I started to get into my dress. My mom and future mother-in-law were helping, but the dress was rather complicated (it laced up the back), and none of us could figure out how to make it look right. Anabelle stepped in and magically made it work. I was really freaking out, and she was the only person who was keeping calm and productively contributing to the dressing process. I think we would still be in my apartment getting dressed without Anabelle's help that day. She really went above and beyond for me!

And I should say that my make-up was awesome! I am a little hard to please because I rarely wear make-up and I was very nervous about looking too "done-up" and not enough like myself. When we met for a consultation, she listened to what I had to say and chose a look for me that was perfect - not too much but not too little -- I loved it! Plus, it lasted all night long - and looked great in the photos! She also did the make-up for my mother, mother-in-law and sister-in-law -- all amazing!

I can't say enough great things about Anabelle -- she's incredible. I would recommend her 200%!

Anabelle was a great find! My hair and my makeup were very important to me and I had numerous trials and was not happy with any of the other trials. I had a trial with Anabelle and explained once what I wanted and she did one trial and I looked amazing. I am very picky with my makeup and the way Anabelle did my makeup my face took my breath away. On the day of my wedding my makeup was stunning, in fact my photographer has a close up of my face on his website. I would definitely recommend Annabelle. Thank you again Anabelle for making my day perfect!

My makeup looked so amazing and the eyelashes that Anabelle applied just gave that glamorous look I was dreaming of. All my family and friends were amazed at how beautiful I looked, even my photographer has two of my close-up photo's on his website. I would recommend any Bride to be if you want profession makeup artist that knows perfection then Anabelle should be your pick. I tried numerous other trials and was very unhappy with the others, Anabelle did one trial and I loved my makeup then and even more on my wedding day. Thank you again Anabelle for making me look like a model on a day that was so important to me.

Anabelle was a pleasure to work with. My airbrushed makeup looked flawless from the moment she put it on til the end of the night. She also kept my nerves in check the whole morning and made me feel so comfortable. She was also not too pricey, which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Anabelle!!

Anabelle did my three bridesmaids, my mom's, and my makeup for my wedding and we all loved how we looked. She is very talented at what she does. She came to my hotel on time and was able to keep us on time which was great since we had a tight schedule. Our makeup came out amazing, we got so many compliments, and despite it being a hot and humid June day it lasted over 12 hours without having to retouch it! Thanks Anabelle for making us all look amazing!

Anabelle did such a great job with my make up on my wedding day! The results were flawless and perfect - she worked with the photos I gave her and the comments I had after our trial run and the results on the big day were amazing! I love how the makeup looked in all of our wedding photos. She was very easy to get in touch with and was super professional. I highly recommend her to any bride!

Anabelle is fabulous!! My wedding day make-up was perfection. The eye contouring, air-brushing and attentiveness to detail (tiny fake lashes) led to many compliments throughout the day. The make-up also lasted without need of a touch-up! I highly recommend Anabelle's services. Thanks so much!

I have never had my makeup done before so was not too sure what to expect. After contacting multiple places that would only cover a minimum of 3 people and completely break the bank, I was lucky enough to have found Anabelle LaGuardia. Her flexibility in accommodating my budget as well as her strong understanding of the style I liked made everything perfect. Her kindness and professionalism provided a comfortable atmosphere in what would otherwise have been a stressful time on my wedding day. I will definitely be reaching out to her again for any future needs.

Anabelle absolutely made our wedding day! I cannot begin to explain how beautiful she made myself and all the ladies involved look for our wedding. Everyone looked perfect, and I'm still(!) receiving compliments on how beautiful my makeup was for our wedding. The makeup wore perfectly, even in one of the worst weather-days I can ever imagine, from early morning until 3 a.m.! I don't wear much make-up and Anabelle perfectly nailed the look I was going for, while she was also completely responsive to each person's preferences as well as creating an overall cohesive look for the wedding. Two of my girlfriends are engaged, and they both are looking to Anabelle for their own weddings!

Anabelle provided her makeup services for my wedding day. I went on a few trials prior to seeing Anabelle, and no one compared to her. She is absolutely wonderful, kind, and professional. My makeup and my bridesmaid makeup stayed put for the entire wedding day, and even through all the tears. I highly recommend Anabelle, she is amazing.

Anabelle is awesome. I called my photographer who took my headshots - years ago - for acting. I wanted to know if he knew a make-up artist. He recommended Anabelle and told me she was excellent for bridal make-up. I had already gone through two other trials and walked away disappointed. But, with Anabelle's make-up, I felt like a princess. She is so easy going. She is professional and always kept in touch via cell phone and e-mail. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

As an international bride, organising make-up services over the Internet was a daunting task, however Anabelle took all the stress and strain out of this. She was in regular contact over email and I was delighted with the personal and professional service she offered; she wanted to know all about my style and fashion tastes, so that she could get my look just right for my wedding day. On the day, she continued to balance the personal and the professional, which put me at ease on a very nerve-wracking day. The make-up lasted all day, despite the heat and nerves, and was great value for money. I looked absolutely beautiful, and received so many compliments, that I would hire Anabelle again in a heartbeat.

Anabelle is AMAZING!!! She did my make up for my wedding day, and I can't say enough good things about her services...We did a trial session, and discussed the look I was going for, and Anabelle was right on target. In preparation for my big day, Anabelle kept in touch, and provided tips for getting my skin in shape for the big day. As a result, my wedding day was stress free (as far as my make up was concerned). Anabelle created a glamourous version of me...When I look at my pictures, I am so happy with the look Anabelle gave me. It's me, without being false or overdone...Simply stated, Anabelle is the BEST!!!

Anabelle did my makeup for my wedding and she did an amazing job! I normally don't wear much makeup and wanted a soft neutral look, and she totally delivered. I looked like me but with a glow. Most importantly, I felt beautiful on the inside and out for my day. I can't thank her enough. Also, Anabelle was punctual and professional during the makeup session, as well as engaging to talk to.

Anabelle and Hope were amazing. They were easy to work with, professional, and their makeup skills made me and the 11 women surrounding me on the wedding day look so beautiful.

First, Anabelle was extremely responsive to email which was great. Then, she did a makeup trial which initially I was unsure about doing, but I am so glad we did it! I am a girl who doesn't wear much makeup, so I was surprised by my look after the trial. Anabelle encouraged me, you just have to get used to it, and she was right - I received a ton of compliments that night!

Anabelle asked me a day later how I was feeling about the trial, which I thought was really sweet. We made a couple tweaks to the makeup, and on wedding day, it was perfect! Glamourous, but still me. Like the prettiest version of me. Like if I was in a movie.

And all my friends and family were so beautiful too. Their makeup was simple, pretty, and natural, as most of them requested, though my mom and grandma went a little more glam and they accommodated that as well. Anabelle and Hope even airbrushed away my friends' tan lines and back scars.

Finally, they were super sweet. Hope was chatty and making everyone feel comfortable, while Anabelle was more quiet and so very nice. She also helped us stick to our packed wedding-morning schedule.

I took off one star for value only because they are expensive, but I do have to emphasize how high quality their work was. Their price includes individual eyelashes and airbrushing, which many makeup artists don't do. I could not be happier with how they made me and everyone else look and feel, it was well worth it.

Anabelle truly made me feel beautiful on my Wedding Day. Make-up trials proved to be difficult and stressful for me as I am pretty particular -- I dealt with artists who applied either way too much make-up or who I felt did nothing special. Anabelle hit it on the head! Aside from her talent as a make-up artist, she was extremely responsive and professional from beginning to end. She truly listened to what I wanted, made sure to get the full scoop on my venue and attire, and studied me in depth in order deliver amazing results. She was also easy to get in touch with responsive to every question that myself along with the rest of my bridal party had.

Thanks Anabelle!

Anabelle was a pleasure to have in my home on my wedding day. She came to my house early to set up and did my bridesmaids, my mom, my mother-in-law and my makeup in a short amount of time. It was a very hot day and our makeup stayed without being heavy or cakey. Although I was a little shiney and would have liked if she supplied retouch samples instead of everyone having to use their own lip gloss or lip stick to retouch. She did a great job.

Denise and her party were a pleasure to work with! It was a brutally hot and humid day so I am pleased that their make-up braved the heat. As I always tell my clients, it is important to have some powder or blotting papers on hand in the event of shininess. To make it easier on my future clients, I am currently working on a small line of lipstick/gloss and powders for my brides. Thank you to Denise for such a wonderful review!!

Anabelle was great! She was such a pleasure to meet with on my wedding day, and she did a wonderful job on everyone's make-up. She made us all look great (especially for the pictures! I could never have done that myself), took into consideration our requests, and made us still look natural and more importantly, we still looked like ourselves. I'm very happy that I used Anabelle! The only reason the rating on "value" is lower is because the rates are a bit expensive, but that might just be a function of NYC. I definitely recommend her to any future bride!

Hi Jen, thank you for your glowing review and I appreciate your feedback on my rates. It is difficult at times for a bride that is shopping around to understand what a vendors rates are based on. My rates are based on my level of experience, how many years I have been doing weddings and what my competitors are charging. Some of my competitors are actually charging a lot more than me and some are slightly less. Ive found over my 14 years of doing weddings that most people find my prices to be reasonable and reflective of my expertise and level of service.Thank you again Jen for your business and your review.

Best!
Anabelle
