MaqPro Paris

A day in the life of a professional MUA can be filled working on many projects. Some artists work strictly in television, film or print and others, like me are freelance and can pick and choose which projects we want to work on, which goes well with my personality! I get bored easily, so working in television one day, film the next keeps my skills fresh and my mind active!



Last year I was asked to travel to Paris, France in the capacity of a consultant to an up-in-coming cosmetic… Continue

Budget Bombshell Part One!

Let’s face it: our country is having some…economic issues, to put it mildly!

Here Comes the Bride!

This MUA works mainly in television and film and I use certain products from many different cosmetic lines that I know work under hot lights, on HD cameras and last through very long hours on the set.



I am fortunate to have many friends that are also Pro makeup artists and every so often they contribute to In My Professional Opinion by writing about their specialty. My girlfriend, Cathi Singh, is a Smashbox Pro Artist and she has found that Smashbox product work great in all genres… Continue

Let's Get It On!

In the backstage world of a Hollywood film set, television production, or Broadway play there is a product we as professional makeup artists use time and time again…the false eyelash!

Frame Your Face!

Being a professional makeup artist in film and television I see a lot of perfectly shaped eyebrows. My job is so easy when an actress or model sits in my chair fresh from a grooming with her eyebrow guru! However, there are times when I have to shape or clean up an eyebrow prior to makeup application and there are many tricks of the trade that I rely on when using tweezers, razors, brow fillers, tints or gels.



Flawless brows enhance the look of your eyes and face. Following the… Continue

Go Naked!

In My Professional Opinion twisted the arm of our friend and fellow makeup artist extraordinaire, Jose Teneza, until he agreed to guest blog! See, Jose is one of the most knowledgeable artists this Pro knows and he works at...well, we can't tell you, but it is a very large, cosmetic retailer and we knew that he would have the inside "scoop" on natural moisturizers.
