Default Good NYC, NJ or Philadelphia area make up artist?

Can anyone recommend a good makeup artist in the NYC/northern NJ/Philadelphia area with experience with PWS? I have never worn make up and am somewhat ambivalent about it, but would like to explore.

I've lived very publicly with a dark purple facial PWS covering about half my face for the past 38 years. There is no malformation, except for an almost imperceptible puffiness on one side of my upper lip.

I am in journalism and deal with new and different people every day for work. My PWS has never really been an issue, as I've pretty much just not allowed it to be one. Attempted laser treatments when younger, but the idea of going through that (with lackluster results), as if there were something wrong with me, took way more of an emotional toll than just living life as I always had.

Anyway... all that just to say... looking for a good recommendation!

Thanks. I'll contact Nancy, the expert. :-)

In the meantime, if anyone has a personal recommendation, would love to hear about it.
