head Makeup artist/Creative Director
After leaving Canada and heading to New York at 17, Sally soon landed her dream job as an assistant to legendary celebrity makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. After working with many celebrities, including Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker and Heidi Klum to name a few, Sally struck out on her own and opened her first studio in Brooklyn in 2003. After two amazing reviews from Allure Magazine and New York Magazine/Weddings the same year, Sally cemented her place among NYC best event makeup artists and remains on New York Magazine's Best of List as of 2019. While Sally's work has spanned all mediums, weddings have remained her passion and her specialty. Sally's professionalism and reputation for natural, sophisticated makeup has made her one of NYC's most sought after bridal beauty experts.
Sally is a mom to three teenagers and recently graduated with a degree in political science. She begins her next adventure - law school - in May of 2020.
Marlena began her career as an assistant to Sally Duvall in 2008 and apprenticed for five years before taking on her own work. Marlena's style mimics Sally's light and luminous technique and her bridal work has appeared in many bridal publications and wedding blogs, including Style Me Pretty and Junebug Weddings.
Marlena is not only a talented makeup artist - she also has a dual degree in Sociology and Psychology from Kean University, is a working photographer specializing in child portraiture and mom to little Lillyanna Grace.
