Mitzvah Market: Tell us about your makeup services for bar/bat mitzvahs?

Essie Cohen: We offer makeup services for the family and the Mitzvah girl during this special occasion.

Mitzvah Market:How do you determine a look for a bar/bat mitzvah client?

Essie Cohen: I would say the look is a collaborative effort, between making sure it’s a level of makeup the parents feel comfortable wearing, the Mitzvah girls vibe, dress and style. We also ask for inspiration pics as well. We always caution using social media or Pinterest as many of them are highly altered and unnatural.

Mitzvah Market: What is different about your aesthetic?

Essie Cohen: We specialize in natural beauty enhancement. We want you to feel the best version of yourself.
