I’ve been doing makeup since I was a little girl, it all started when I would sneak into my moms room to sit at her vanity and play for hours. To start my career I went to the Make-up Designory, NYC in 2006; I knew I had to move to New York. I started working for a custom-blend makeup line called Giella at Henri Bendel, which is where I first started blending makeup. I learned so much working on real woman of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes. I still offer custom lipstick for my brides to this day! {{Fun fact: Make-up by Mario also got his start working at the same cosmetic line. He left the counter to be Kim K's makeup artist when I started}} I’m from Pennsylvania originally and when I moved back, I opened a custom-blend makeup boutique in Philadelphia, and I set it up like a kitchen with makeup pigments in spice racks along the wall. This is where the name "Shimmer and Spice" was born. They didn’t do it like that at Bendel’s — I just always had that idea in the back of my head. It was a lot of fun but I started to get really busy on Saturdays with weddings so I decided to close it and work freelance. I know I will eventually open up a shop again when the timing is right but for now I'm having a best with my brides, and growing the Shimmer and Spice team

Kristyn has done my makeup for a few photoshoots and every time I'm obsessed! I don't wear a ton of makeup, but she always listens to what I'm going for and makes me look natural and pretty.

Beyond that, she's the person you want when you're feeling stressed about a big event or shoot. Kristyn is so funny and totally chill. I wish she could do my makeup every day!

I used Shimmer and Spice for my wedding day makeup and was beyond impressed with Kristyn and her assistant! I’m not a girl that wears much makeup and my husband had one request – I look like myself on our wedding day. After having my trial with Kristyn I knew she was going to be able to make me feel beautiful, yet still look natural and not overdone. I loved everything about my makeup – it was absolutely perfect!

My sister is getting married in March and also booked Kristyn since she loved my trial makeup. After we saw how the makeup turned out for my wedding, my sister said, “I’m so happy I booked her! “All my bridesmaids loved their makeup and my mom looked stunning, too. I would highly recommend Shimmer and Spice to anyone looking for a wedding makeup artist! Kristyn’s the best makeup artist out there!

Kristyn did my make-up for my bridal shower and bachelorette party, which were on the same day. She did my make-up at 9am and it stayed PERFECT until I got home at 2am. In between the shower and bachelorette, I used a beauty blender to smooth any creases caused by sweat (it was 90 degrees that day!) while everything else stayed in place.

We didn't do a trial but I had a very specific "look" in mind. I showed Kristyn a few photos of make-up inspiration, my dress and how I would wear my hair and she did exactly what I wanted!

Despite the hot day, my make-up never looked caked on or flakey! She even gave me tips on how to remedy my dry skin. I would absolutely recommend Shimmer and Spice!!

Kristyn is an amazing artist. Every step of the way from the practice session to the big day went perfectly. She is extremely professional but also very friendly. She got to the venue a little earlier and was set up and ready to go by the time we had scheduled. All my bridesmaids and both my moms were extremely happy with their make up. and I looked amazing! I still looked like myself, but the most beautiful version of myself! I loved looking at every single picture; thinking wow, that's me!
Our wedding day was really hot. We spent a few hours with the photographer outside in the 94 degree direct sun. Then we danced non-stop from 6pm to 12pm, and after all that, my make up was still FLAWLESS. I can't thank Kristyn enough for that.
I strongly recommend Shimmer and Spice to all brides who want to look and feel their most beautiful on their big day!

Kristyn of Shimmer and Spice is so talented, I've never felt better and after seeing our photos-I am convinced that the makeup was perfect! My mom, sister-in-law and friends looked so beautiful and I know they were so happy with the results. Kristyn and her assistant met us at the hotel day of with all of their supplies and extras in hand for us to touch up over the course of the evening! Before the wedding, Kristyn worked with me to perfect the look that would make me both feel and look amazing and it definitly worked. I highly reccommend Shimmer and Spice!
