Pursuing my happiness by doing the things I love which inspire me to live deeply.
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile :)
Where I have been:
I am a freelance makeup artist and aspiring photographer focusing in glamour, lifestyle, and promotional makeup and photography. I began makeup more than six years ago. Trained in Chicago, I was a makeup artist for CHANEL, Smashbox, and NARS among others. I have worked under numerous national and freelancing makeup artists whose work has appeared in magazines such as W and Oprah. I was invited to sit on the judges panel at the 2010 Miss Teen Saginaw/Flint Beauty Pageant.
I am a bit of a transient and I love to explore new places. I am currently living in Saginaw, Michigan after returning overseas from the country of Dominica where I had been living for the past 14 months. I have also previously lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Moscow, Russia. My mother was born in Colombia, South America and immigrated to the United States in her mid-twenties. Colombian culture has contributed greatly to who I am and continually inspires me.
I am really easy to work with. For a more inclusive view of my artistry please visit my website. You can also find me on facebook under Larissa's Artistry!
