|I began my career as a model in 1986 while working for several major
retailers and clothing manufacturers. In addition to modeling, I have also had
the wonderful experience and privilege of being runner up for Mrs.
Connecticut, America in 1991. Modeling both print and runway have taught
me the importance of color and the affect lighting has on skin appearance.
My modeling experience introduced me to the cosmetic industry. I have
worked for several major cosmetic companies including Clinique,
Prescriptives, Chanel, Aveda and Laura Mercier. While working with these
cosmetic companies, I have assisted with many large in-store events and
have had the pleasure of working with several international makeup artists.
My experiences with these international makeup artists have taught me a
variety of techniques in applying makeup. I continue to work as a freelance
makeup artist for several major cosmetic lines for specials events.
In 2002, I began freelancing as a makeup artist with salons, traveling
throughout the State of Connecticut, preparing brides and their bridal parties
for their wedding day. In addition, I have also worked many bridal events
preparing models makeup for their fashion shows.
In January 2006, I began working exclusively with Naomi Martinez in
preparing brides for their wedding day. While working closely with Naomi,
she has taught me her techniques for the flawless look you see on her
|More Client Testimonials:
I don't even know where to begin...my makeup trial yesterday far exceeded all of my expectations.
You and Naomi were such a pleasure to work with! I had so much fun! The makeup came out
amazing! It was so natural looking, yet I felt so beautiful. Everyone commented on how natural it
looked. They said it still looked "like me", rather than looking "fake, with makeup caked on". I feel
so confident about working with you on my wedding day! I can not wait to see how my mother and all
of my bridesmaids will look after you are done doing their makeup! Again,
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
It was great meeting with you yesterday! I am very excited about my decision to have you do our
make-up on 08/26/06. I received complements from random people, of how beautiful I was:) You and
Naomi did a fabulous job! I want to thank both of you girls for your time, energy, creativity and
dedication to your brides. Janice, I look forward to working with again:)
Have wonderful day!
P.S. Janice I love that little card you have below! The girl on the card looks just like you:)

|Good Morning, Janice!
I had a wonderful time with the two of you last evening. We will have fun on my wedding day too.
Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. You created exactly the look I was going for,
but better. I was amazed at how you could slim my face too. The make-up stayed on beautifully
through dinner. I didn't want to wash it off! I loved the young, fresh look and was so happy my
I owe you a huge apology though. I was so excited about the amazing job you did and so wrapped
up in the excitement that I left with your gratuity in my pocket. I remembered at dinner and feel like
such a jerk. Please know that your hard work is appreciated and I promise to make up for it. I am
so very sorry. You definitely deserve it.
You and Naomi wanted business feedback: From what I can tell so far you run an excellent
business. You are both talented and hard working while making sure the customer feels important.
I felt at home right off the bat. It was comforting to have you ask a lot of questions and write
everything down. I would have been very worried that you'd not be able to recreate the look if you
didn't write it all down. I also appreciated all the advice on skin care and makeup. Most importantly
the proof of your talents was in the beautiful results. Keep up the great work!
Please email me the photographs when you have a chance. I cannot wait to show them off to my
girls and moms
Dave and i just got our wedding album. I cannot thank you enough for making myself and the
bridal party look so amazing!
I recommend you all the time to my friends!
It has been a few months since my wedding, and I have been wanting so long to
thank you for the wonderful job you did on my makeup. I felt and looked beautiful
(if I do say so myself) all with your hard work. You did a fantastic job and It was a
pleasure to work with you on my wedding day. I have attached a few pictures for
you to use in your portfolio. Thank you again.
You did an amazing job on my sister, my mom, my friend Kim and myself.
|Hi Naomi and Janice,
I just wanted to write a quick email to say thanks for such a wonderful experience tonight! I
absolutely love how my makeup came out! Even though I came in not knowing what I wanted,
you both did such an amazing job coming up with a colorful palette that really reflects my
personality and captured what I really want for my wedding day [I love pink =) ] !
I was wondering if it were at all possible to get a few of the pictures you took tonight to email my
bridesmaids, whenever you get a chance.
Thank you again for such a great experience! I can't stop looking in the mirror...I can't wait to
work with you in September, Janice!
I want to thank you so very much for the beautiful job you did for my June wedding. The bridal
party looked amazing and I absolutely loved my makeup. I got so many compliments and I want
to thank you for your work. I have been referring you to every bride to be! Thank you again. I
have attached a picture for your portfolio.
I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did on my wedding day makeup! We
moved to West Hartford recently and I was reading about Naomi's Salon in "West Hartford
Life" and how wonderful things are going for you and the rest of your team.
You really did a remarkable job and all of my bridesmaids loved theirs as well. The pictures
came out great - I attached one for you - feel free to use it on the website if you want. Thank
you and best of luck - I'll try to make it down to the salon to check it out.
You are the absolute best! All of my girls (and Pete's guys!!) just loved you. You did
an amazing job and were such a pleasure to be around on a morning that had the
potential to be so hectic. Thank you for the absolutely flawless look you created for all
of us. We were basking in the glory of compliments all day - and it is all thanks to you.
Wishing you all the best - it has been a pleasure!
You made me look like a million bucks on my wedding. I have avoided having my photo taken for
about 12 years! I can't believe how much I like my wedding photos. Thank you so so very much.
Everyone complemented me on my hair and makeup. I felt like I had had a Hollywood Makeover -
seriously! Here are a few photos for you. The professional shots haven't come out yet but if I see
anything in them that I think you gals might be interested in I will shoot them over to you later. I
look forward to seeing you gals again next time we're up to see Steve's mom. I'd like to get my
hair done and my eyebrows tatooed, and probably wouldn't hurt to get a makeup lesson too!
Thanks a million!!!
Thank you so much for doing me and my bridesmaids makeup. All of our makeup lasted the entire
day and we got so many compliments!
If you ever need a recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks again and I hope
to see you again soon!
