"It's all in the timing!" Which is why the smart brides choose Filis Forman & Co., not just for her talent as a make-up artist, but as a beauty coordinator as well. Her brides look as if they just stepped off the pages of a magazine (which is where most of her work appears).
Filis takes charge of arranging the bridal room schedule and may also arrange everything from having your makeup done, prepping your clothing (steam or iron), getting you dressed, dealing with those last minute emergencies, and providing other services. Not only that, she never leaves your side until you walk into the dining room.
When it comes to keeping your hair and make-up looking smooth and flawless all night, you need cosmetics with professional staying - power. You'll find they also come in handy for other marathon evenings.
Accessories can make or break a bride's look. The right piece can transform your appearance from elegant-but-boring to absolutely stunning.
Being able to improvise when something goes awry at the last minute is a skill that we've perfected after many years of experience. Most importantly, we love what we do:
