"I enjoyed working with Alaine -- she is friendly and easy to get along with. Even after the wedding, we have kept in touch (we sorta bonded after I learned that she spent some time in Indonesia and that I went to college with her cousin). Most importantly, I like the work that she does, especially with the eyes (I think she made mine look bigger!). She gives a very natural, not overly done look (but just enough of a little something so that you know this is makeup for a special day) which is exactly what I wanted since I never wear makeup. It was pretty comfortable too -- I barely remembered I had on makeup." - Rosalynn M.

"I simply cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me on my wedding day a week ago. I felt so beautiful and more importantly, my guests and of course my husband felt the same way. I could not believe how well it had all come together and I almost couldn't believe it was me in the photo, of course, in a good way. :)

Thank you so so much for taking care of me on my wedding day. You are the best!!!



Update from Melody:

“Can you believe its been a year since you made me the prettiest bride in the world? :) Whenever I look at the photos, I’m taken back to that lovely morning at Hotel Giraffe, where under your artistic eyes and skillful hands, I was made into the most elegant bride I could ever imagine myself to be! On this special day, I want to THANK YOU again for everything you’ve done for me. You are the best in my eyes! Hope all all have been well with you. Hug NYC for me! :) Melody”

“I needed a makeup artist for an engagement photoshoot in NY, and I'm glad I found Alaine.  My photoshoot was outdoors when the temp was about 94F, but the makeup lasted for the entire shoot.  All I needed to do was use blotting paper and retouch my lipstick (which she provided).  The makeup looked natural even during the daytime, but it really enhanced my facial features.  The photos turned out great! :)  She was also very responsive to my emails, and very friendly.” - Criselda D.

“Hi Alaine!! Thanks so much for doing the makeup at Rachel's wedding! We all loved it and it lasted the entire day!” - Hannah (Maid of Honor)
