Emerging trends and timesaving techniques for a lovelier you
By Caleigh Ostrom
New York and New Jersey-based makeup artist Gabrielle Gentile has been crafting her skill and technique since the age of eight. Learning the fundamentals from her mother who worked for Christian Dior in Herald Square for 16 years as its rotator and coordinator Gentile pursued education in makeup artistry at the Christine Valmy International School in Manhattan, where she obtained her Esthetician License after taking courses covering facial treatments, body procedures, hair removal, and makeup. She later attended the Make Up Designory in the city’s Financial District, becoming certiﬁed in multimedia makeup techniques in addition to studio hair styling and special effects makeup.
In 2012, Gentile started her own business: Makeup by Gabrielle G. Servicing events from weddings to proms to photo shoots, she also offers makeup lessons for those who want to learn the basics or further develop skills. makeupbygabrielleg.com
