John Barna - (INSTRUCTOR) He is great in make-up tutorials, he just create awesome things with people, specially making girls to look perfect.


A professional makeup artist understands all the elements of video/photographic makeup. He knows how your makeup will be affected by the weather, lighting and camera technique. Your artist will work with colors and pigments that complement your skin, style and personality.

A professional artist will meet with you for a trial consultation at least a couple of months before the wedding, and will make recommendations on the best ways to prepare your skin for your wedding day. He will address any concerns and/or allergies that you might have to products or chemicals. He should be able to cover any scars, marks or tattoos you don't want to show.

Lastly, working with a professional will put you and your loved ones at ease on your big day. I often get thank you notes from brides telling me how calm they felt for having me around in the last minutes before walking down the aisle.

Allowing yourself to look absolutely radiant on your wedding day is not a luxury, it is an absolute must!

He has worked with brides of all ages, ethnicities and skin tones. From Astoria to Westport, from London to Spain. John has worked as a freelance artist for some of the most prestigious makeup lines and has over 10 years of international experience in video and print.

John lives in Westchester County and offers her services in the tri-state metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs.

After 10 years in business and more than 300 weddings, I still get excited when I see a bride ready to walk down the aisle. And that is why I approach every wedding with the individual care, enthusiasm, and personal attention a bride deserves on her special day!

"Your wedding is one of the most important and beautiful days of your life."

My philosophy as an artist is to create a warm, natural makeup by using a palette of colors and textures that complement your unique skin tone, complexion and facial structure. Using only the finest products, I work to accentuate your most beautiful features, always avoiding an overly made-up look.

Still, you are the most important person in the room. You need to feel comfortable and radiant. I welcome and value your input. I listen, because my job is to achieve the look you have always dreamed of for your wedding day.
