Anyone have any recommendations? I already contacted Sachiko and Reiko, but they are both booked. I prefer someone who is used to working with asian skin. I am getting married in central NJ. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

sally duvall – she is doing my wedding in nyc but i think she lives in nj. she’s wonderful to work with and is a pro at wedding makeup. her website is sallyduvall.com – you can see some of her work there (she recently put me on her site!). she’s on the pricey side if you don’t have many people to do makeup on your wedding day but if you have a lot (i have myself, 6 bridesmaids, and potentially 2 moms), or are doing a full day price, then she’s kind of a bargain!

Definitely check out Lois Lam (http://www.loislam.com) . She lives in central jersey and her prices are very reasonable! She also did a great job at my wedding!

Try David at http://www.davidmaderich.com … he’s experienced with Asian skin. He’s doing my makeup and I think he has been the best so far (and I’ve gone to 2 Asian MUA’s for trials).

The best NJ Makeup Artist comes from LUSH Artistry Inc., they got the 2011 Top Bridal Vendor award and they were recently on Jerseylicious, but I’ve been hiring them for a while now for parties, weddings, night outs…they always create a breathtaking but natural look. I’m getting married this year also so I’ll be meeting with them in their new studio to try out new looks and techniques…they’re definitley on top of their game, a little pricey but you definitley get what you pay for.

Hello!! My wedding was in March and I had my makeup done by Makeup By Shaili. I actually met her as a makeup artist at the MAC Cosmetics counter because I was watching her do a makeup application on a customer. I asked her about her prices and if she travels and we clicked right away! She is located in central New Jersey but she travels all over. I used her last year for my engagement pictures as well. I recommended her all the time. I was scared listening to all the horror stories about artists not arriving on time or doing multiple weddings in a day and rushing, but she guaranteed that she would not be taking more then one wedding in a day. It is also very hard to please my mother because she hardly wears makeup, but Shaili did an amazing job and my mother actually loved it!!!!! Her work is better then the most I have seen and her prices are extremely reasonable! I am looking forward to my younger sister getting married next year and using her as well!
Here is her info: [email protected]
I heard she also made a facebook page recently to show some of her work but I have not gotten it from her yet…but I can promise you that her work is flawless!

Although I am already married, I signed up on this site to get ideas for my sister-in-law (soon to be bride!). I got married this past March and used Makeup By Shaili. Shaili was so great to work with!!! Since I am of Indian decent, I wanted someone for the usual, hair and makeup, but I also needed draping for myself as well. Shaili had provided all three services for myself and hair and makeup for my bridesmaids. She was absolutely pleasant to work with and I would recommend her for any new brides. My sister-in-law may be getting married in the Cayman Islands next December and wants to fly Shaili out to provide makeup services (we can’t use her hair services because it would be too pricey to fly out her hairstylist as well and my sis doesn’t mind using the hotel salon for that- but we know that we all want her for makeup no matter what!). We love her work! 100% satisfied! She was on time if not earlier! I am not sure what her website is and I will update this when I find out but her Facebook is Makeup By Shaili. Go check out her pics – her work is flawless!! 🙂
