Anni Bruno is a fantastic make-up artist in New York City. Anni used to be an actress and we realized we actually had the same headshot photographer, Deborah Lopez. As coincidences go, she also lives a block from where my hubby used to live in Brooklyn. Anni does make-up for a lot of headshot photographers and fashion photographers in the city. She has expanded into doing weddings and making brides look natural and gorgeous too.
Last week, I called up Anni and asked her to take me make-up shopping. We had a fun time and I have to say I love what she gave me. We tried all kinds of different primers, foundations, shadows etc. She really took the time to listen to all of my concerns. We also walked around talking about the differences between each type of make-up. Things like how to tell a good shadow from a cheap one, what mascara is better for certain looks etc.
We have a few shoots planned this year and I am super excited to work with her more. Plan on seeing her work on the blog. We only grabbed a few photos before we were stopped at Sephora. Apparently, you can’t take photos in there.
