Nicki and Bill’s San Diego Wedding

From our bride Nicki,

“Many, many years ago I lived in Albany, NY, but moved away soon after visiting sunny California.  I just loved San Diego.  Of course, over the years, I still kept in touch with friends and family in the Albany, NY area via Facebook.  I saw a picture of Alayne doing makeup for a friend in Albany for a commercial shoot she was part of and couldn’t believe what I saw!! I’m not even sure I was dating my now husband yet!

The day I got engaged, and started planning our wedding–a mere 6 months away…I immediately reached out because although there are sooo many talented hairdressers and makeup artists here in San Diego (my own hairdresser does hair for So You Think You Can Dance, The Voice and other well known shows), there was no doubt in my mind that Alayne would be my girl.

She is booked years in advance, but…as fate would have it, she was free that one weekend in July.  Or should I say, that one day…  You see, Alayne was already scheduled to do hair and makeup for a national pageant in Orlando, Florida right after my wedding.  I live in California.  And yet, this wonder woman agreed to fly out, do my hair and makeup–including my entire bridal party (on her own), attend the ceremony, and catch a flight to Florida early, early the next morning.

img_49201 lcp_07261 lcp_27211 lcp_27321 lcp_80991 lcp_08401

Not only is she Fabulous.  She’s Extraordinary beyond belief, as beautiful inside as she is stunning outside, and I am grateful, honored and blessed to have had her for my wedding day.

The pictures speak for themselves, but I will tell you–i’m not even offended when I show people my wedding photos, and they respond with–“that’s not you!”  Yeah…it was.  :-)”

Thank you Nicki for having me and the pleasure was all mine. And BTW, I can completely see why you fell in love with San Diego!!! I can’t wait to come back!!!

What is #TEAMFAB

At Make Me Fabulous, you’ve probably noticed a different vibe as soon as you walk in.  You’ll find us smiling and greeting all our customers. You’ll find team members helping each other in order to stay on schedule and deliver a better experience for you. In fact, it’s not uncommon for you to receive services from one, two or even three people before you leave. It’s all part of our purpose of making your day even better.  You are about to learn our secret to FABULOUS! Are you ready? Here it is: We don’t pay commission. Not on service sales and not on product sales.

We have spent more than 2 years researching and developing our system to be different and more enjoyable. How, you ask? We compensate all of our staff by salary, a very nice salary. This means no matter what’s going on, whether they are booked or not, they are getting paid. By compensating our staff on what’s known as a “Team Based” system, it allows us to function more efficiently and provide flexibility and services based on our customers’  schedules, not ours.  Can’t get into your favorite stylist at 6 pm on a Thursday after work,  try out any one of our Angela’s or one of our new and fresh “mini muffins,” Jessie or Kendra.  Go for it! We don’t mind. We actually encourage it!  Your previous formula is always on file.  Do you love Suzie’s perfect lip color combinations and Lauren’s cateye liner.  Get them both before a Friday night out!  How about finally experiencing Alayne’s perfectly shaped eyebrows while your haircolor is processing.  Just say the word! Oh and if you haven’t experienced Courtney’s eyelash extensions, now is the time!!

We are all here to ensure every guest’s day is being made, everyday, all day when YOU need us the most. This also allows us to give our staff regularly scheduled time off  and paid vacations and eliminates the “burn out,” which is so common in our industry.  One of our stylists actually cried when she heard she would be receiving  a paid vacation next year,  because she hasn’t had one in more than 3 years! Our team based system also allows our staff to get out from “behind the chair” from time to time to take additional education classes while our clients and guests are still able to receive services from team members “manning the fort.”

What about the products we recommend?  When our staff is recommending a product, it’s because they truly believe it’s the best product for you, not because they’re trying to make commission on the sale. So next time you feel like switching it up a little, just let us know.  After all, variety is the spice of life!  And, having all the talents of all our team members is always at your beckon call.  That’s FABULOUS!  That’s #TEAMFAB!

Enjoy,

Alayne

Curly Hair Help Behind the Scenes

 

 

NINA_MMF_SB_0006 resized

#teamfab just adores our photo shoots. Bridal and commercial, you name it— we handle all of it.

Typically, we work our magic based on the direction of our clients. They hire us to create a look to fit their mold. Recently, however, we had the opportunity to design our very own vision and watch it come to life in front of the camera. Today we’d love to take you behind the scenes of that shoot, which we believe portrays the Make Me Fabulous image, style, and feel.

We arranged this photo session for two reasons. First, as many of you may be aware, Alayne and Angela W recently worked the hair and makeup for Kleinfeld’s 2016 Bridal Show in NYC.  We sent some of these photos down before we arrived as a portfolio review to get the gig of sorts.

Also, Alayne and Angela W just earned a specialized certification with Ouidad for cutting curly hair.  We created these images to use in our promotional pieces.

Make Me Fabulous has a reputation for following trends to some extent while remaining timeless and classic and beautiful. Our brides are not “overdone.” Perhaps that is why Make Me Fabulous is so successful and why we have maintained a full calendar, year after year. This photo shoot gave Alayne full creative license and the opportunity to showcase all of what Make Me Fabulous is about, which is also exactly what most brides look for— soft, pretty, dreamy.

For the location Alayne chose Something Bleu, a bridal salon in Saratoga, because she adores the feel of the old wood and elaborate woodwork, the history of the building and the gorgeous dresses floating on hangers in the background.

She chose Tiffany Wayne to be the photographer because of her editorial, dreamy style and because she just “totally got,” Alayne’s vision.  See more of our photoshoot on Tiffany’s blog.

Of course, no shoot with Make Me Fabulous would be complete without Nina, who is the face of Make Me Fabulous and quite simply stunning.

Let’s step behind the scenes of this gorgeous image and peek just a bit at the surprisingly involved process of making a bride soft, pretty and dreamy.  Take a look at Nina’s luscious mane of fabulous curls. Though Nina’s hair is naturally long and thick, the fullness you see here is achieved with TWO sets of curled hair extensions. The two different shades give it that natural look.

Curls need hydration or they will  frizz, so first we applied the Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-in conditioner (Available at Make Me Fabulous, $26). Then we put the Ouidad products to work.

climate controlOuidad’s Climate Control Heat and Humidity gel (Available at Make Me Fabulous, $26) is a must. This “smart” gel protects the hair and leaves it shiny and manageable with no build-up.

clear control pomade

We also love, love, love the Clear Control Pomade — it’s awesome to finish the hair and great on photo shoots to tame fly-aways, it doesn’t leave any white dust or film on set, we love that!

 

At Make Me Fabulous, we like to work with our clients, taking their vision into account. We refine it until they are 100% satisfied. The result: photos that make the bride look like she just stepped out of a fairy tale or just plain fabulous hair for everyday. Stop in anytime to talk about your camera ready or everyday fabulous Hair!

Jessie Hajduk’s Beautiful Blowouts

JesseAs a little girl playing dress up, then a teenager in charge of hair and makeup for friends for special events, Jessie Hajduk has always known making people beautiful would be her life.

“It was inevitable. I’ve been doing makeup since I was two. I had friends over and did their makeup. I thought they looked beautiful… I did their hair. I did my own color. When it came to ‘What am I going to do with my life?’ It was obvious- I’ll go to beauty school. It was a no-brainer.”

Ten years after graduating from Orlo Beauty School, you’ll find Jessie at Make Me Fabulous, a round brush in one hand and a blow dryer in the other, proud of and known for her fabulous blow-outs.

“The curlier the hair, the more challenging. I ask myself, ‘How can I get this as straight as possible?”

Makeup is another of Jessie’s passions, a skill she pulls out of her bag in a big way on Halloween.

I specialize in special effects makeup, which isn’t really needed many other times of the year than Halloween… I can make you look like a zombie that’s falling to pieces, or I can make you look as beautiful as you want.”

Jessie credits her pursuit of the beauty industry and success so far to her mom, whom she says not only encouraged her but constantly provided her with loads of samples.

I had Caboodle kits upon Caboodle kits filled with makeup…. She was always very liberal with what I did with my hair and makeup… She was the one who said I should consider going to beauty school… She helped me through it, with the loans and all the stuff that goes with it. She was definitely the motivator behind it.”

Jessie officially joined Make Me Fabulous this year after freelancing and working with Alayne on the Milady brand teaching resources. She has experience with three salons and feels like she has finally found the place she should be.

I absolutely love it. The girls are such team players, and everyone helps out. Coming on as the newbie can be scary but they all made me feel welcome and accepted me as one of their own. Everyone is so sweet and so different in their own ways and everyone gets along. It’s a nice atmosphere. I love going to work every day.”

As for working with Alayne, Jessie echoes the sentiments all of the girls with #teamfab have stated.

So far I’ve learned an ungodly amount from her in the past two months. I was a Goldwell color tech so now switching to Schwarzkopf is different… Alayne is helping me relearn color and their makeup line… I’ve already learned so much. She’s a really good teacher. She makes you feel confident and comfortable with it… She’s very nurturing.”

Instagram and social media are also sources of inspiration for Jessie. She never tires of opening the aps and browsing the beautiful pictures of fellow artists.

Just to see everyone’s different styles… I follow everyone from beauty bloggers to fashion bloggers to special effects to face painters, photographers and art. It’s all over the board. It’s a wide variety of inspiration I take from everywhere.”

Jessie’s personal style tends to be funky and fun mixed with a touch of Boho. She lives in Troy with what she calls her fur babies, her cats Loki and Morrison (Yes, she admits, after Jim Morrison from The Doors.) When she’s not making others beautiful at Make Me Fabulous she practices special effects makeup on herself and hangs out with close friends and family. In the summer, she relishes hanging out on the porch reading a book.

We think Jessie is fabulous and are thrilled she’s part of #teamfab!

Courtney Vogel’s Fabulous Lashes

With steady, careful hands, the tiny lash is delicately placed. One after another, the black lashes form a line, framing first one eye, and then the second. Their owner gazes into a mirror, in love with the thick set of lashes staring back at her. She glances at the face peering over her. It’s Courtney Vogel, Aesthetician and lash specialist at Make Me Fabulous, ready with one last lash to complete the already fabulous pair.

Courtney started her career in the beauty business thirteen years ago, after graduating from the Orlo School of Hair Design. In 2012, she became certified in eyelash extensions through Lavish Lashes. A year later, she expanded her range of services even further by attending and graduating from The Aesthetic Science Institute.

Vogel particularly enjoys working with brides and travels all over the Capital Region and Beyond with #teamfab.

With all the choices people have for hair and makeup, it’s nice that people choose us on such a big day for them. It’s nice to be part of it.

With skilled hands and a creative soul, Courtney performs just about every service offered at Make Me Fabulous. Custom facials, make applications, up-dos, cuts and colors— Vogel is a full-service beauty professional. She has a passion for helping women look fabulous, and will schedule a variety of services throughout her day.

It’s fun. It doesn’t feel like work. You get to be creative and express your creativity and you make people happy and feel good.”

But ask her what her absolutely favorite task is, and she’ll tell you it’s applying eyelash extensions.

Volume Lashes by Courtney

I like the whole creation. You take someone’s features and enhance them and people feel good afterward. I haven’t had a client that hasn’t loved them (their lashes.)”

It’s important to Courtney to stay on top of her game, relying on social media to keep her perspective fresh.

“I try to keep up with current trends and see what’s happening and learn from other people. I check Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.”

Courtney came to Make Me Fabulous nearly two years ago. She says working with Alayne has been both inspirational and educational.

I like working with Alayne. She allows you to be who you are as a person in the beauty industry. She lets you do what you’re good at and run with it… I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like her. She’s so good with people and makes them feel relaxed and at ease. She doesn’t take herself too seriously. She knows what she’s doing and just does it.”

When Courtney isn’t making clients beautiful at Make Me Fabulous, she enjoys down time with her 5-year old daughter Scarlett. She calls herself a homebody and cherishes quality time with her family.

She describes her own personal style as classic, trendy and simple.

We are thrilled to have Courtney on #teamfab and of course find her simply fabulous!

Picture Perfect Makeup, Everytime

A television anchor’s job is to deliver the day’s news with poise and confidence. You too can capture the same camera-ready makeup delivered by #TeamFab at local TV stations, weddings and even in their own silly selfies.

I regularly train the anchors and reporters from WNYT News Channel 13 in Albany and Time Warner Cable News in Albany, Syracuse, and Buffalo. Normally, I spend ninety minutes with each on-air personality, teaching them how to apply camera-ready makeup for high-definition televisions and cameras.

HD cameras can see six times sharper than the human eye, showing every pore, every blemish, every fine line, every mismatched shade. Makeup should cover imperfections while still appearing natural to avoid the appearance of makeup that is caked-on.

Today, I’m going to dive into my makeup bag, show you what’s inside so you can be ready for any photo opp, anytime!

Skin care and preparation:

  1. Wax, tweeze, and shave regularly to remove unwanted hair from eyebrows, nose and lip-area.
  2. Gently exfoliate the face and neck area to remove dead skin cells often.
  3. Steam the face to help soften fine lines and increase circulation, then follow with a moisturizer. Easily  done in the shower.

Must-have tools to keep in your bag:

  1. An eyelash/eyebrow comb, to make sure lashes are free of clumps and brows are neatly shaped.
  2. Tweezers, for last-minute hair removal.
  3. Lip exfoliator and moisturizer
  4. Blotting papers, to help absorb oil without compromising the makeup.
  5. Primers, which are silicone formulas to help to fill-in fine lines and blur imperfections. Investing in a good primer makes it easier to apply foundation and help it last longer.

One of the foundations lines we use commercially at Make Me Fabulous for high definition work  is FACE atlier, a popular brand on many television sets. According to their website, FACE atelier “was the official makeup sponsor for Kelly Clarkson and her 2012 Stronger Tour, Madonna’s Confessions Tour, and regularly supports New York Fashion Week events.”

Now, I want to share my best tips with you when working for  a high definition medium:

  1. Concealers- should be only one to two shades lighter than skin tone. I love the new Bare Skin Concealers from bareMinerals.
  2. Foundation- should use fine micronized optical correctors that sit on the skin rather than settling into lines and crevices. Mix your foundation and concealer on the back of your hand. This will warm it and allow it to melt into your skin more easily.
  3. Blush- Cream appears more natural and three-dimensional. My favorites are from Stila in shades of Lilium and Gerbera with a pop of powder blush on the apple of the cheek.
  4. HD Setting powder. Super fine texture, use sparingly.
  5. Eyeliner- Black, Charcoal, and Dark Brown work best with most shadow colors.
  6. Eye Shadow- Limit color choice to two or three shades and avoid heavy shimmer. Matte and pearl finishes work best. Try The Enlightenment and Vanilla Sugar from bareMinerals or Puppy and Cocoa from Stila.
  7. Mascara- Use mascara with a separating brush that lengthens, thickens, and separates each lash. Black or brown work best for HD. Don’t apply too much mascara on the lower lashes or you will have raccoon eyes.
  8. Lip Liner- Pick a color one shade darker than your natural lip color. 
  9. Lipstick- Should bring the look together. Warm tones work best when they aren’t too matte or too shiny.
  10. Lip Gloss- Choose a lightly tinted gloss and apply to the center of the top and bottom lip. I like to avoid gloss that is heavily sparkled. I really, really like Marvelous Moxie shades in Party Starter and High Roller from bareMinerals to brighten the entire face.

    makeup

One more tip for when you know you are going in front of the camera lens:  watch pinks which most often will turn orange or appear brighter on camera. We recommend warm shades of reds or corals rather than cool shades of reds or pinks.

There you have it! Try a few of my tips and tell me what you think next time you are in the shop!

Blemishes Beware! Blemish Remedy is Here!

There’s no doubt about it— dealing with blemished skin can be disheartening and challenging. If this is one of your skin woes, you’re not alone. Many of our clients suffer with blemished-prone skin. As skincare and makeup experts, #teamfab has a bagful of tools and tricks of the trade to erase your blemishes and help make you camera ready.

bareMinerals’ Blemish Remedy line is one of our favorite new tools! The best news is it’s available in our Make Me Fabulous boutique for you to daily manage your blemished skin at home.

Blemish Remedy is a four step skincare system designed to diminish the look of redness and imperfections and promote clearer, healthy looking skin.

Blemish Remedy
Begin and end day with the Blemish Remedy Acne Treatment Gelee Cleanser which uses peppermint and ginger extract to help dissolve makeup and keep skin clear. It is formulated to treat existing blemishes and help prevent future breakouts by delivering salicylic acid to your pores.

Blemish Remedy/Make Me Fabulous

After you cleanse, count on bareMinerals’ Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel to prepare your skin for a flawless makeup application.

It works like a primer, featuring oil-absorbing minerals like Aspen Bark, Tea Tree Oil and a Peptide Complex to help reduce the risk of shine and keep skin flawless and fresh. Spread it evenly over your skin before you apply foundation for the look of a perfectly smooth, clear complexion.

Blemish RemedyNext, apply Blemish Remedy Foundation using the specially designed seamless buffing brush to help reduce the look of shine. In studies, one hundred percent of women experienced significant reduction in skin oil in six weeks. To apply, simply dip the buffing brush into the mesh filter, swirl, tap, and buff the powder onto your skin for medium to full, flawless coverage. This dermatologist tested foundation gives your skin that beautiful look bareMinerals is known for, while the weightless coverage diminishes the look of pore size and redness without drying out your skin.

Blemish Remedy Concealer/Make Me Fabulous

Finally, finish with Blemish Remedy Concealer, also formulated with Aspen Bark, Tea Tree Oil and Peptide Complex to help promote clearer, healthier-looking skin.

Just dot the concealer onto your blemishes and any areas that need coverage to neutralize the look of redness. The concealer also features a built-in sharpener that keeps the twist-up pencil ready for a targeted, fuss-free application.

We’ve included a special video straight from bareMinerals – watch and see for yourself just how effective the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy line is on blemished skin, and how it can help even problem skin look… simply fabulous!

Rosanna Bernos and Her Fabulous Displays

Rosanna Bernos

The next time you walk into Make Me Fabulous, check out the display cases. Notice how they are always so fabulously filled with delicious products— yummy lip glosses, sparkly eye shadows and blushes, creamy foundations, rich shampoos and conditioners, glittering nail polishes, nourishing moisturizers and skin care systems. Make Me Fabulous’ own Rosanna Bernos keeps close tabs on our inventory and places orders at just the right time, ensuring our shelves are always full and fabulous, ripe for your picking!

Rosanna came to us five months ago, while taking a break from her career as a pharmacist. She was one of Alayne’s first clients and has kept us company throughout the years, sitting in Alayne’s chair to keep her hair looking fab and hanging out to talk makeup, particularly all things bareMinerals.

When a client calls Make Me Fabulous to book an appointment, Rosanna cheerfully answers the phone and helps them schedule just the right service.

Rosanna takes her own style cue from Jessica Alba, who she admires mostly because of Alba’s line of baby care products.

“I love how she created Honest Company because she couldn’t find products that were safe.”

Working at Make Me Fabulous has given Rosanna a new appreciation for small business owners like Alayne.

“I have learned a lot about running a small business from Alayne. I have always worked for corporations. There are a lot of small details you have to pay attention to. Alayne is always so positive and helpful with her clients. No one ever leaves not feeling fabulous. I have learned so much from all of my Make Me Fab girls.”

When she’s not prettying up the display cases or tending to the front desk at Make Me Fabulous, Rosanna enjoys time at the home in Greenfield Center she shares with her finace’ Gary, Son Patrick and their dogs Bonz and Phil. She’s a big fan of reading and shopping and in the summer, you might find her and her boys cuddling in a tent in the midst of the great outdoors.
