Introduction: Hi, My name is Afra, and I am a professional makeup artist. I started casually doing makeup on my friends and family for events and that turned me into a Sephora Certified Makeup Artist in 2016. Ever since, I have been doing freelance as a hobby up until 2021. I became NYMUA certified and my work has been featured in NYFW in 2021 as well. I've always been passionate about makeup. It is something that not only makes us look and feel beautiful, but it also makes us more confident. Therefore, my goal is to provide the best service possible for my clients. I have worked with all ages, skin types, facial structures, shapes and tones. I listen to my clients, take my time and make sure that I can provide long-lasting and flawless makeup that my client desires. I take pride in my work and quality of work for a reasonable price as I continue to educate myself every day. My prices are listed below, and I tried to keep it as simple as I could. Please feel free to check out my instagram at makeupbyaafra, or reach out to my cell 2403502284 for faster service. I'm really excited, and I look forward to being your on-call makeup artist.

My wife and mother in law hired Aafra for pre wedding makeup, and couldn't have been happier with the results. Aafra arrived and was patient, listening and shifting styles to suit their skin types. She even corrected styles in the middle when changes were requested because of outfits. Overall extremely happy and impressed with her work.

I hired Aafra for my bridal make up and hair for my religious ceremony (Nikah) & reception and she did such an incredible job!! She was very patient with me and was able to give me the exact look I wanted. She was open to very specific requests and even went above and beyond to help me get dressed (not an easy task for South Asian bridal attire). I only hired her for pre-event makeup & hair, but she even packaged up some extra lip color and pins for me to keep throughout the day. Outside of her actual talents, she was very punctual and was so sweet with my family - they loved her as much as I did! I am obsessed with how well my makeup turned out and highly recommend her for your future event!

Details: Special occasion • 26 - 44 years old • Standard (brushes, sponges, etc.) • False lashes • 1 person • My home, venue, etc.
