Hello there... I am Allison and I am an artist of many trades. My passion and love for hair & makeup began at an early age and I knew I was destined to become an artist. I went to school for makeup at 20 years old in NYC, and then shortly after I continued my education in Hollywood CA for film and Television makeup. I attended Paul Mitchell The School for my Hairdressing Cosmetology License shortly afterwards. I began my career as a freelance artist in NYC for commercials and Television working for networks such as TLC, Discovery Channel, HGTV, Pfizer, Dove Chocolate to name a few. I have learned a lot in my almost 18 years as an artist in this industry, mostly through trial and error but this is what makes me who I am artistically. I am a solo artist and I prefer to work this way for it is how I create my best work. That is what is the most important thing to me, creating my best work for you. I have an undying love and passion for helping women see their true beauty and self worth through sharing my skills and knowledge with them.

Wonderful to work with
Allison did a wonderful job with the makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids. I do not typically wear a lot of makeup and did not have a great vision of what I wanted, but Allison understood that I wanted a more natural look and did a beautiful job making that happen. She was very responsive to emails and was great to work with to schedule things ahead of time. I would highly recommend Allison to anyone.Sent on 09/09/2020

Allison was amazing to work with! My mom is a wedding photographer and has worked with Allison before and has always said she is the best at makeup. I did a trial with her and loved what she did right off the bat. She took detailed notes so she knew what I wanted on my wedding day. She is so sweet and positive and was great to have around on the morning of my wedding. She is clearly very passionate and skilled at doing makeup, and a true artist. She made everyone look amazing and natural. She had all of the supplies and knew what type of makeup and colors to use on who. I was so happy with how I looked and my bridesmaids, mom and mother in law looked amazing as well! We all received so many compliments for how we looked! I couldn’t have been happier with having Allison do our makeup for my wedding!Sent on 10/15/2019

Allison is THE BEST! Not only is she insanely talented, but she's also such a warm and kind human being. I knew I wanted her to do our hair and makeup for the wedding before my trial was even over. I don't normally wear too much makeup, and it was important to me that I looked natural for my wedding (so that my now husband would recognize me!), and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. She took reference pictures from all of us and knew exactly what tweaks were needed off of the pictures to work with each girls' hair type. I also have very thin hair and was worried about it coming undone like it usually does, but it stayed in place all night. Allison and her team made me, my bridesmaids, and my mom look beautiful and I highly, highly recommend her.Sent on 12/15/2017
