My name is Stacey Marotta. I am a Professional Makeup Artist in Miami, Florida. I am also a Freelance Makeup Artist for Make-up Art Cosmetics commonly known as MAC. I have freelanced with the company since 2002 . I am a licensed Esthetician and the Skin Care Instructor at Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers in Miami Beach, Florida. I am a Hairstylist as well and I have over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry. I am represented by the Las Vegas-based La'Bella Mafia Makeup Agency (www.labellamafiamiami.com
). My former experience also includes Distributor for Sally Beauty Supply, Beauty Consultant for Clinique Cosmetics and Skin Care Product Specialist and Makeup Artist for Sephora.
In addition to experience, I am well-educated in the field of beauty. I am a graduate of The Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers where I studied Esthetics. I am also a Cosmetology graduate from Beauty Schools of America. I have received several beauty certifications including Special Effects Makeup, Microdermabrasion, Electrotherapy, Eyelash Extension, Tape Extensions, Color Correction and Bridal Hair and Makeup. I also stay informed on what is trending in the industry through participating in trade shows, workshops, professional continuing/master education classes and networking with other artists, models, makeup companies, skin care companies and industry leaders, etcetera.
Realizing that imagination and consistent practice are just as important as skill and talent in reaching and exceeding each client's expectation, I bring not only talent but flexibility, positive energy, professionalism and a great personality to each and every project.
As a Freelance Beauty Professional, I have the opportunity to work with many people with varied backgrounds. Living in Miami has afforded me the opportunity to meet people from all ethnicities, nationalities and ages. I enjoy this profession because it permits me to express my creativity while allowing my client's personality to shine through. I also lend complimentary services to various charities and organizations to give back to the community that has embraced me and allowed me to thrive in the industry that I love most...The Wonderful World of Beauty!
I have clients from teens to the well-seasoned, models and actors to the business professional, both male and female and a few celebrities. My latest contracted celebrity assignment was for a hip-hop video shoot directed by R. Malcolm Jones (who directed music videos for R. Kelly, Flo Rida, Nas featuring The Game, Ray J, David Banner, Fat Joe, Clipse featuring Pharrell, Cassidy featuring Swizz Beats, and Mario) starring Benzino, performing artist and co-founder of the Source Magazine and also starring super producer Stevie J., a three-time Grammy Award winner who has produced projects for the R&B mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs and Mariah Carey. Stevie J. is also starring in Vh1's infamous series "Love and Hip-Hop- Atlanta".
I also had the pleasure of working with "Myammee", one of Vh1's reality stars, for two years in her salon called "Myammee's Hair Spa" as the Esthetician, Makeup Artist and Hairstylist located in Miami, Florida. Myammee co-starred in "The Flava of Love 3". She was also cast on the Vh1 reality show called "I Love Money 2" where she won a quarter of a million dollars. Myammee co-starred in the Oxygen network's "Find Me My Man" as well.
I have had the opportunity to work among the ranks of some of the most prestigious beauty professionals from around the world at the renown Warren Tricomi Salon at the luxurious W Hotel on South Beach on Miami Beach, Florida. Some of the A-list clients that I have had the pleasure of meeting personally at the famed Warren Tricomi Salon was Paris Hilton, Nene Leakes of "Housewives of Atlanta" and Evelyn Lozada (Ocho Cinco's wife) of "Basketball Wives".
Being a member of Model Mayhem allows me to network with other artists, photographers, models, producers and beauty professionals in the industry.
