Local makeup

artist honored

Londonderry-based makeup artist and esthetician Ella Schwotzer was selected as the recipient of the 2013 “The Knot Best of Weddings” by the editors of The Knot magazine and brides who also voted in her favor.

This is the second year Schwotzer has received the honor for her work.

“It is an honor to be selected by ‘The Knot’ for the New Hampshire region,” Schwotzer said. “It’s meaningful enough to be part of someone’s wedding day, but it is a true honor to get positive feedback from my brides. I cannot thank them enough.”

As the winner, Schwotzer will be featured on the Best of Weddings winner page at The Knot’s website. She has worked in the area for the past eight years, working with clients from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

She has also worked for international clients during presidential primaries and worked with New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter during her 2012 campaign.
