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 2407979069 for faster service. Thank you!

I cannot begin to write all the amazing things about working with Afra! She went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and felt pampered on my special day. Afra did a wonderful job on both my hair and makeup for my wedding, and came prepared with everything I could have possibly needed or asked for. As we were working she had the idea to incorporate live flowers into my hairstyle in such a special way, it absolutely made the entire look. I have never had such a flawless natural/glam look in my life. I will absolutely be using Afra again for various events and would highly recommend her for your next event! (Pictures to come!)

I am beyond grateful for all Aafra did. I originally hire her to do my daughters hair and makeup she was upfront and honest about her skill set. She did amazing work. She also did my makeup. As someone who never wears makeup and has a fear of being poked in the eye with a brush. Aafra made me feel safe and comfortable the entire time. We a few laughs and she almost made me cry I never had felt more beautiful than the work she did. All throughout the night I got great compliments on my makeup.

Details: Prom / formal • 13 - 17 years old • 26 - 44 years old • Standard (brushes, sponges, etc.) • Pre-event makeup trial • 2 people • My home, venue, etc.

If you’re thinking about hiring Afra, don’t waste another minute of your precious time…just do it! This lovely lady has such great energy and delivers what the bride desires. She really listens to what you want and works with you to make it happen. Another great thing about hiring Afra is that she not only does makeup but also does hair and does it so well too! My experience with her could not have been any better. She made my special day even more so special. What a wonderful experience. Afra, I hope you continue doing what you do and how you do it! You were a pleasure to work with! Cheers to your great spirit and expertise!
