1) Hi! My name is Kelly Marie Farrell and I’m the Founder of Silverceiling, and a certified, NYC trained Airbrush Makeup Artist. I am also part of Dinair Airbrush Makeup’s Pro Team: working on fashion shows and workshops all over the country! I was just recently on set for TLC’s “Say Yes to the Prom” fashion show in NYC this past March!
Our company specializes in high definition, bridal airbrush makeup and hair styling. Airbrush (the new industry standard for weddings) makes the skin look super soft and smooth... and we airbrush everything from foundation, to contouring, to eye shadow and lipstick! Your makeup is guaranteed to stay in place all day and will be sweat/ humidity/ water proof. Our hairstylists are specifically trained in bridal, so they can really do any style you are looking for. With a team of 8, it makes it easy for us to custom-fit your stylist to the style you are looking for!
2. One thing about myself that most people don’t know: I am an insane dog lover!!! I have a toy Pomeranian that is more like my child than a dog. His name is Sir Oskar Reginald Charles and he is royalty. My dream is to have like 1,000 little white Pomeranians running around!!! I just love them!
3. What inspired you to become a Makeup Artist? It was ONE defining moment. My first job was at Ulta working as a Prestige Consultant. I had a customer that came in- her name was Sandy and I still talk to her! She came in looking for a foundation and stated: “Just pick me out something simple I know I have terrible skin and theirs not much I can do about it.” She had severe acne scarring and was not educated on how to cover it. After an hour in my chair and several skin treatments, primers, and a full face of makeup on… she looked in the mirror with tears in her eyes and said: “This is the first time in 15 years I’ve looked at myself and felt beautiful.” That moment was such an impact for me and that was when I realized: Wow. Makeup is powerful. I love making people feel great about themselves!
4.What makes you unique in comparison to other MUA? Certainly our custom-fit approach, and the fact that we use 100% Airbrush Makeup. We love seeing inspiration photos from our brides and using our creativity and artistry skills to really create their unique bridal look. We set all of our makeup with a waterproofing spray that requires little to no touch ups on the big day!
5. What's one piece of advice you like to give brides? My best advice is to really do your research on your vendors, and make sure you have a connection with them! To me responsiveness is incredibly important, and so is personality. You want to work with vendors that will make your day as easy and fun as possible!
