Naomi was one of the first makeup artist in CT to airbrush makeup. Her skills, 23 years of experience
and special techniques have made her and her team one of the most sought-out makeup artists in
CT and across the nation.
In January 2007, Naomi traveled to L.A. and Las Vegas where she expanded her training to include
the latest "red carpet" techniques. In February 2011, Naomi traveled once again to L.A and took the
latest courses on the newest "red carpet" techniques that look flawless in person and in photos! She
firmly believes that not all airbrush makeup and techniques are the same; therefore, her goal is to
always produce the most remarkable and naturally glamorous results on all skin types. Naomi and
her team travel all over the world making women beautiful. Our most recent trip took us to Cancun for
a destination wedding-where our airbrush makeup held up beautifully to the heat and humidity.
What is airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is the lightest makeup coverage available on the market today. It's a fine mist of a
special liquid based foundation correctly, the results are truly spectacular and completely natural
Is is the best choice for sensitive skin?
Absolutely! Naomi's uses a special makeup that is hypoallergenic and non-comodegenic. Hundreds
of clients have been pleased to see that their skin has not reacted negatively to the makeup applied.
Are you able to get a perfect match for my skin?
Absolutely, we can custom blend any color foundation to produce very natural color results.
About ~ Naomi Martinez
"My signature style is a natural fresh glowing look with a glamorous edge. I love the soft look of lashes, glowing cheek and a very soft lip. While I also love to create a sexy smokey eye or any trendy or dramatic look, it's the clean, classic and glowing makeup look that remains my passion. I believe in enhancing rather than changing."
You'll find that whatever your style, you'll leave feeling beautiful!

I studied at the School for Film and TV in New York City, and the Connecticut School of Broadcasting. This is where I mastered the art of applying makeup that looked flawless on print, video, TV and film. I also learned how lighting changes the look of makeup. At the time, I was also as the head makeup artist and manager for a skin care salon. I earned a certificate in Aesthetics, which encompassed: facials, makeup and waxing .In 1995, I decided to make a career change and take advantage of my communications training. I hosted a weekly television program with an NBC affiliate station, and I became an advocate for the Straight Talk about Risks Program. This program educates children about the dangers associated with firearms. My involvement in the community helped me earn the key to the City of Waterbury, Connecticut. In 1996, I was crowned Miss Connecticut USA and I represented Connecticut at the Miss USA Pageant. This afforded me the opportunity to travel throughout the USA, Mexico and South America. I expanded my makeup expertise by working closely with several talented industry makeup artists who were also hired to apply my makeup. In 2004, I was asked to speak before Congress in Washington regarding issues affecting women such as Breast Cancer--a cause very near and dear to my heart!! In the fall of 2005, I was a guest on the Tyra Banks show. It was for a makeup showdown against an LA based makeup artist. We were challenged to recreate a look done on Tyra Banks by Celebrity Makeup Artist: Jay Manuel from the America's Next Top Model TV show. I was chosen as the winner of the makeup showdown, and I assisted Jay Manuel on a celebrity photo shoot with super model iMAN. I was asked to be on the Tyra Show for a follow-up show which aired May 24, 2006 on CBS. In the summer of 2006 I was hired as the key makeup artist for the nationally syndicated TV show: Judge Hatchett. I'm also a beauty advisor for Brides Magazine and CT Bride and The Connecticut Bride.
