    Not only a very talented makeup artist but also a very wonderful and professional person to work with! I'm definitely using Marissa again for all my dance performances and recommending to all my friends.

    This is almost a year late but Marissa did the makeup for my wedding in September 2013. She did the makeup for my two teenage daughters and myself. We were absolutely beautiful and stunning! I hope she has photos. She is great to work with and very professional. She does great work with ethnic faces! Hire her!

About this pro

I study all subversive makeup styles such as gothic, punk, cyber and cosplay. I also love everything about my Asian culture so I'm always looking at Asian fashion magazines, researching Japanese and Korean cosmetics and practice standard Asian beauty makeup application. I make my own luxury bath products like soaps, salts, and candles. Since I have worked for several cosmetic companies, (including the top 3 in the world) I have extensive knowledge of many major cosmetic lines as well as how to practice do-it-yourself natural skin care. Making people feel good about themselves.

    Q & A

    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      Runway, photo shoots, and weddings
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      1.) Do your research! Not all makeup artists are licensed, but that doesn't mean they are less talented than those that are. An artist's experience and portfolio speaks for itself. 2.) Make sure contracts are involved. This is beneficial to the client and the artist. Make sure all fees and services are understood so that there are no surprises along the way. If the artist does not offer a clear contract of EXACTLY how much they arecharging and what services they will be providing, then be cautious. 3.) Sometimes clients have a difficult time describing the look they want to achieve. Sometimes words are lost in translation, or their idea of what something is differs from a makeup artist (i.e the difference between frost, shimmer and glitter). Pictures of similar looks are always helpful as are celebrities to compare them to.
    • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
      Going to cosmetology school doesn't make you a better artist. In fact, they only teach basic application. Makeup artistry schools are different. They teach technique and different genres of makeup.
