All reviews seem positive

Shara rocks! 6/8/2011

I'm getting married in a few months, and wanted to find the right makeup artist to make me glow on my wedding day AND teach me the tips of the trade so I can learn to apply makeup in the right way. I had a makeup lesson last week, and booked Shara on the spot for her bridal services! I definitely had an A plus makeup lesson! Shara is an amazing teacher. She made learning about colors, techniques, and brushes fun!! Worth every penny. I got amazing products and brushes after our lesson, and I feel like I look 10 times better everyday! So excited for Shara to do my wedding makeup!!! more

Makeup Lesson was a complete success 4/20/2011

I was searching everywhere, but found Shara on google from her glowing reviews. They could not be more spot on. She is a gem! She introduced me to colors and techniques I never thought about and then showed me, with patience how to apply them. She is a special woman. If you're looking for a makeup lesson that would make a difference, run, don't walk. She's THAT good. more

Makeup Lesson Heaven!! 2/10/2011

Seriously, the makeup application and lesson I had with Shara was beyond words. My only complaint is that I didn't discover Shara till now! I went through my 20s without my new found makeup wisdom :( I was wearing tons of grays and dark lip kind of colors, and Shara completely changed that. She brought me to life and made me look so much brighter by using peach and bronze tones. Love it! Also, she taught me to do a smokey eye. Yep, she pretty much changed my world :) Such a great find, and she's such a doll. more

Shara is a MAKEUP GODDESS!!!! 2/2/2011

LOVE LOVE LOVE Shara!! I'm a total believer. Right off the bat I knew she was the bomb when I saw her beautiful display of makeup. We talked about my goals and I felt so comfortable in her hands. She really opened my eyes to new colors and how to do a smokey eye. She coached me through the lesson, and was such a great teacher. Total sweetheart! I'm not an easy customer, but I got a mineral foundation, two shadows, primer, and liner that looks amazing. SIDE NOTE---when I left, after the lesson, I had a really cute guy follow me five blocks down the street, and when I told him I was married, he STILL wouldn't leave me alone. He told me to congratulate my husband. And I never get guys following me down the street. Shara is incredible, hands down! more

The BEST Makeup Lesson! 1/27/2011

Shara is simply fabulous!! I'm so lucky to have gotten a last minute appointment with her for this week. She books fast! I called a couple weeks ago and there was no availability. But, I finally got in and I'm so pleased!! As a woman of Asian decent, I have an issue with my eyes looking small. I learned amazing tips at our lesson, and even how to apply individual lashes. She is a pretty great teacher. Even though the lesson was for 60 minutes, I was with her for 90. This is just what I needed to get out of my winter slump. I feel refreshed, educated, and beautiful! more

Beautiful Bridal Trial 1/18/2011

Two of my friends used Shara as their makeup artist for their weddings last year, and so I knew I had to book a trial! Also, I heard her name through another friend's recommendation. When, you hear someone's name a few times, you know she's gotta be great! AND SHE MOST CERTAINLY IS! Shara makes you feel comfortable and beautiful in her presence. She treated me with a lot of respect and care, was very patient with me, and made my bridal makeup trial a delight. I walked out so excited about my makeup. I booked her on the spot and one of the things I now look forward to most about my wedding day is having my makeup done. She's a master at individual lashes, they look so natural. I feel very lucky to have found and booked Shara! more

One word: AMAZING! 1/8/2011

I'd been hearing from a few friends about Shara (she did their weddings), and then found her reviews on Yelp. Yesterday was my makeup lesson. Words cannot describe how talented I think Shara is. She has a beautiful place on the UES, is an incredible makeup artist, and her "bedside manner" is the best I've found in NYC. Seriously, her makeup skills are TO DIE FOR! She has an uncanny ability to pick just the right color combinations, and know exactly how much or how little to apply. She is a true artist. She seems to do makeup with sincere passion, which I think ROCKS! The best part was, even though I had a full face of makeup, I felt so natural, beautiful, and glowy! The tips she gave me for skincare and makeup were invaluable. I wish I could have gotten back all the money I've spent along the years not really knowing what makeup and brushes to buy! Shara works with beautiful makeup products as well from different lines, and I loved how reasonably priced everything was! I seriously LOVE the shadows, mineral foundation, and brushes I got from her! I would not be surprised if Shara becomes a superstar in the makeup world very soon. She is one who absolutely deserves all the success! more

Awesome makeup lesson! 12/27/2010

I googled for hours and hours looking for a great makeup lesson. I'm SO glad I found Shara. She was well worth all of my research. Some background on me: I'm in my 30s, not exactly a makeup junkie (but love all things beauty), and a NYer for 17 years. I've been to what seems like every counter in Bloomingdales, Saks, Lord and Taylor, Sephora to learn some pro tips for applying makeup. I ended up with no real knowledge and a plethora of makeup I never even touched :( All that is different now since I finally had an amazing makeup lesson with Shara. She analyzed exactly what I really wanted to learn, and really understood me. We went over skincare, makeup colors, and then finally, technique. She was incredibly patient and just a beautiful artist. I don't think I'll be doing my makeup as perfect as Shara in the near future, so for major events, I'll still book her..but, I feel confident that I will be doing my makeup at least 70% better than I used to-on a daily basis. I am glad I brought my makeup case with the products I use most, because Shara also gave me an idea of what I should be using and what I could be throwing away. I also LOVE the products and brushes I purchased from Shara after my lesson. The brushes were awesome quality and MUCH cheaper than I could find in Sephora. The makeup looked like it was made for me, and again, was relatively inexpensive. I got the most amazing colors! Oh, and I went out the night of the makeup lesson with a girlfriend who couldn't believe how amazing my skin and eyes looked. I think a true test of great makeup is the girlfriend test! Shara passed with flying colors! more

Wedding Makeup! 12/7/2010

Shara! I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing job on my makeup at the wedding. I felt absolutely beautiful and looked flawless throughout the night. My mother and maid of honor were so pleased with their makeup and honestly, they never looked better! Everyone at the wedding was complimenting our makeup! I know I expressed concern before the wedding about my makeup not lasting throughout the day and night, but I could not believe how long the makeup lasted! I looked just as fresh at 2am as I did when you just did my makeup! I have honestly never felt so perfect, and it's all thanks to you and your talent! Not only did your amazing makeup skills make me feel beautiful, but your down-to-earth, positive personality made getting ready for my wedding so relaxing and enjoyable. You are truly a gem to work with. We had such a a great time getting our makeup done! You truly put 110% into your work, and I can't thank you enough for your talent and hard work. You are truly such a talented makeup artist and such a pleasure to work with. I have so many weddings coming up and could not imagine using anyone else for my makeup. Thank you again for everything Shara! more

Shara is a wonderful teacher of makeup! We learned so much! 12/6/2010

I've been looking for a makeup lesson to teach me the colors I should be using, and some tips for every day application. I thought it would be fun to bring my Mom with me, so we could both have a lesson. The first thing I loved was when I received an email back within 10 minutes. When we went to Shara's place for the makeup lessons, I felt very excited that it was a friendly environment. I felt like Shara was a girlfriend, and she even made my mother feel at ease. The lessons went great! Shara showed us how to apply makeup to each feature, and then let us apply makeup ourselves, with her patient guidance. I have posted notes from my lesson on my bathroom mirror and I have gotten SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! My mom said she finally learned how to do a good base, and discovered that she could use colors she never thought of, like bronze and lilac. Another plus, is that my Mom and I were able to order makeup directly from Shara. We felt at ease that the right makeup was ordered (instead of blowing so much money on products I'll never use from the department stores!) We received the products within a few days. This was such a treat for us and we will be telling everyone who wants to look a little better to CALL SHARA! more

Not just a good, but an AMAAAAAZING makeup lesson 11/12/2010

Wow, two days later and I am so happy I had a professional makeup lesson with Shara. I am a NYer in my mid 30s. Like so many of my friends, I spend so much money of beauty products and never really had the training on how to apply makeup and what was right for my skin complexion and type. Working with Shara was such a pleasure. Her place is so beautiful and calming. She makes it such a great environment, with candles and music. It's definitely not a factory approach to beauty. She is incredibly patient and has such a wonderful spirit. We started by talking about skin care and she let me know what I should be doing and what products would work best for my skin. Then, she took me to the makeup chair, where we took a look at what I had been using. Shara, then step by step took me through an everyday makeup look and actually made me mimic what she was doing on one side of my face. She is a great teacher! She then showed me how to make the makeup more dramatic for nights and events. I walked out with an amazing makeup look, and she even gave me great tips for my hair. When I went home to my husband, he LOVED it! That was the cherry on top for me. This was the best money I've spent on a beauty service. Hands down! more

Shara is The QUEEN of BLENDING! Leah & Jaquline are amazing! 10/17/2010

OMG!! I really do not have enough good things to write about Shara, and the ladies at Makeup for You. Professional, upbeat, so talented...simply AMAZING artists. I was married a little under a month ago at The Pierre and wanted to feel no stress when it came to beauty on my wedding day. I had 14, YES 14 bridesmaides PLUS six family members who needed hair and makeup. Shara was a great organizer and had two of the best artists there to help her! We didn't even run off schedule. Everyone's makeup and hair was picture perfect! As for Shara's makeup, my skin has never looked better. I don't think there is an artist out there who can blend skin the way Shara can. She made my skin look like velvet and the pictures are amazing. She uses very high end products and never skimps out on quality. Jaqueline did my hair and it turned out exactly the way I imagined! A lot of my girls wanted smokey eyes, with lashes and I did not recieve any complaints. All I can say is, if you are looking for makeup/hair for your wedding, give these ladies a call!! more

Last minute WONDERS! 9/19/2010

I could not have been LUCKIER when I called this morning for a last minute appointment for TODAY! I woke up in a bit of a funk and had an important lunch meeting. I've always been afraid of makeup artists making me look ultra dramatic, but Shara did amazing makeup! Glowy, soft smoky colors, PERFECT blending. I FELT AMAZING. I loved how she used Armani foundation and the cargo bronzer I love. I also love Nars and Bare Escentuals, and she used all the best products. The makeup took place at Shara's on the upper east side and we just chatted and laughed for most of the time. I had a few lashes on each eye and felt like I was on a mascara commercial! haha. Shara is a total class act, with TALENT! I think she would made anyone feel beautiful and ultra confident. more

Very happy with Shara 8/3/2010

I called Shara a few weeks ago after an internet search directed me towards her business. My daughter Samantha is having her Bat Mitzvah at the end of the month, and Shara will be doing makeup for my three daughters, my mother, and myself. I found Shara to be a total sweetheart, amazing to deal with, very well priced, and quite professional. We did a trial with my daughter and myself. She made me look and feel beautiful, and made my daughter look and feel gorgeous. Shara has a talent of knowing and judging the exact right type of makeup and colors to select for each woman she works on. She is a true artist! We feel very lucky to have her booked for our event. more

INCREDIBLE!!!! 7/5/2010

Everything always works out the way it's meant to. I had my makeup scheduled with another makeup artist who cancelled on me two weeks before my wedding! I located Shara and called her. What a pro! She handled EVERYTHING and I scheduled my trial! I was sooo much happier with my makeup by Shara than the other artist. Seriously, all makeup artists are NOT created equal. The day of my wedding, Shara made everyone sooo happy, including my hard to please Mom and not so easy to please Mother in Law. The makeup stayed from 12 PM all the way till 2 AM, when I washed it off (sadly). My makeup was just amazing, I got so many compliments all night. The lashes she put on me made ALL the difference. Pros: I had my dream wedding makeup done by the best girl around! Cons: Not a one! more


I had the most amazing time at my wedding (May 22nd, 2010) and never felt so beautiful. Much of it was in thanks to Shara and Scarlett at Makeup for You. Seriously, I never could have imagined my makeup coming out so amazing. All day, people came up to me and told me how stunning I looked. Shara listened to me closely and made me feel so comfortable with her. I feel like she was like a sister and whenever I got the least bit nervous, she knew exactly what to say and how to act. The lashes put on me and my bridesmaides and my mom MADE the makeup. The girls were so professional and everything ran on time. If you want the best experience with makeup on your wedding day, look no further. Pros: SUCH GORGEOUS MAKEUP, professional, kind, on time! Cons: I already miss looking and feeling so beautiful more

AMAZING bridal trial 3/22/2010

From the moment I met Shara, I knew I was going to love her! She was so welcoming. I was so nervous about my trial, but after reading these reviews, I knew I would be in great hands. She listened to my concern and then did a fantastic job. I actually booked her before I left! My fiance thought I looked great when I came home. I especially loved the individual lashes and the glowy look I was given. I am so obsessed!!!!! I feel really lucky to have her do my wedding makeup. Pros: awesome makeup Cons: none at all more

Flawless Makeup 2/2/2010

I am so glad I searched here for makeup artists. I am a 40 year old female, who has unfortunately seen some signs of the aging process, as we all do eventually. I started communicating with Shara to do makeup for an event I had last month. I just wanted to look natural, but great. Shara is so patient and gentle when it comes to makeup application. She is very big into blending and her makeup looks better than the airbrushing I've see in magazines. I couldn't be happier to find such a gem. Her individual lash application is also flawless! They look so real and natural, I wish I could have them all the time. Pros: Great looking makeup! more

My Bridal Trial 1/3/2010

I didn't want a factory approach for my wedding. I didn't go to Klenfields for my dress ( knew that they would be beautiful, but I get nervous in that kind of setting). I personally need a more individualized approach. I first thought of the cheapie way of makeup for my wedding...asking a person who sells products at Bloomingdales do it. But she wasn't used to the level of work I want. My bridal trial with Shara was special, a great experience to remember. She has a gift, an art of REALLY listening and is confident to pull it off. She knocked it out of the park with my makeup and I am really lucky she's able do my makeup the day of my wedding this June! One less thing to worry about! Pros: Two thumbs up, sweet personality, happy to have found her Cons: No negatives here more

Great makeup lesson! 11/28/2009

I had a fear of putting on makeup, because I thought it would take me hours! I really only had 5 things in my makeup case, and I hardly ever used them. I read some reviews about the makeup lessons given by Shara and I thought, "what the heck" I scheduled a lesson after work and I am so glad I did. Shara made the process of learning how to put on my makeup so easy. I am convinced I need only about 5 minutes in the morning to do my makeup, and I have the tools to know what to do to spice it up for night. I was concerned mostly with my eyes and how to accentuate them and I learned so many tricks. I feel like Shara should write a book, because she makes it so easy. I found her studio to be so cute as well! Best 100 dollars I have spent in a long time! Pros: Quick way of learning makeup, good value more
