New York Brides getting Glam in Harlem

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js I spent my Saturday in Harlem at Bibi Salon NYC getting my brides all glam for their upcoming weddings. My first bride Tara from the Bronx came by and wanted a dramatic makeup look. Of course glam and dramatic makeup are my signature look. Tara will be getting airbrushed on her wedding day and because she already has flawless skin her makeup will sure to be stunning.

My second bride Tiffany from Brooklyn wanted a glam makeup and her wedding is taking place in Vermont. This will be my first Vermont bride. Tiffany wanted a dramatic eye with a soft cheek in lip. Because of her romantic and vintage wedding dress, and her 1940’s finger waves that Maisha will be doing I decided to give her a strong brow with a high gloss lip. The day of the wedding I will be adding one more item to complete this look, of course individual lashes.

My third bride from New Rochelle, NY came in to only do a verbal hair and makeup consultation with Maisha and I. And will schedule her actually consultation with me in August. While at BiBi Salon NYC I ended up booking two more clients after. A fun filled day ending by going to one of my favorite places for drinks, Nectar Wine Bar in Harlem for a cocktail.

Dinner at Red Rooster Restaurant in Harlem

@RoosterHarlem @MarcusCooks @markingrambride …After a fun filled day at Essence Magazine office shooting a makeup beauty segment and at Instyle & Entertainment Weekly Magazine office chatting about Sundance Film Festival, I was starving for a great home cook meal. The FAB Reggie Evans suggested we stop by Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem for dinner and cocktails. It was a total of 5 of us without reservation, a crowd of sexy, well dressed professional people were at the door waiting lined up with and without reservation. Mya, took great care of us and was able to get us a table with only a 5 mins wait. So excited to see the amazing Mark Ingram-Bridal Atelier sitting a table away from me. He’s very attractive, so polished and such a gentlemen. I know because I was able to meet and chat with him for a few minutes. This will definitely be the spot to be in Harlem…for me-cocktails and the ambience. Thanks Marcus for bringing your dream, passion and luv to Harlem. Happy Holidays to you, your family and stafff.
