Hi I'm Gina Marie! Owner and founder of Make Me Glamorous & Cosmetic Ink By Gina Marie!
I'm 37 years old, single mom of four amazing kids!
My passion for hair and makeup started in my early teenage years. I was 17 years old when I started my career in the beauty industry. Working in a local salon as a receptionist-assistant, I found myself daydreaming of one day becoming a successful artist. It was then when I knew I wanted to pursue a profession as a bridal beauty specialist. I enrolled in my local Boces Cosmetology program, where I learned all basic of hair cutting, coloring, styling and much more. My craft surpassed all of my classmates when I placed in every Updo competition winning awards! It was clear I was gifted in creating beautiful styles! I continued to grow my skills by attending ongoing education. I mastered the Art of Hair & Makeup. Over the years I have worked in multiple high end Salons where my talent as a young artist grew further. I was given the opportunity to assist Editorial Shoots and Runway Shows working closely with extremely talented makeup artists. I was quickly fascinated by the power of makeup and the experience I was gaining! I begun to build my portfolio as my passion for weddings grew more and more. I founded Make Me Glamorous in 2010, Working my way up the wedding industry I stablished trusting relationships with reputable skillful vendors. As I worked harder and harder, my work was recognized and featured in wedding blogs and local magazines. I built a team of trusted professionals who share the same love for our industry, and I have been given the opportunity to have serviced a great amount of brides. I even have some celebrity bridal clients! And, I welcome you to allow my team and I to serve you. I invite you to put your trust in me to take care of all your beauty needs, whether it be hair & makeup for any special event or even permanent makeup. I'm here to help you feel your absolute best on any special occasion.
