Hello. My name is Angela, but most people call me Fuchsia. I am a freelance makeup artist who has experience working for major makeup companies, including Christian Dior and Laura Mercier, in both department stores and Sephora. My focus lately has been on editorial work, alternative fashion and weddings. I specialize in modern glamour, but love doing more artistic and elaborate looks with an edge as well.
My makeup work began to appear on the runway, in photos, advertisements and music videos beginning in 2006. My first magazine publication was in 2011, and many others have followed. I am also a model, singer, actress and occasional event promoter, who has a unique understanding of what it takes to have a successful project/event from all aspects. I have also had my makeup done by many makeup artists over the years. Because of this, I feel that sanitation should be a top priority for all makeup artists, but is unfortunately overlooked by many. I am extremely diligent about exceeding sanitation standards with my makeup applications.
I believe that every person is beautiful in their own unique way. I like to see the best in each person and enhance those qualities. I like to give compliments where they are due, so every person in my chair not only looks, but also feels their best. Since I am an educator by nature, I make sure to explain what I am doing as I am applying the makeup, so that my clients walk away with helpful tips that they can use later. I also believe that guys should be able to achieve the benefits of wearing makeup too. I am no stranger to “manscara” and “guyliner”. 😉
I am absolutely addicted to makeup and am always buying new products. I have collected many different types of false eyelashes (including fantasy lashes), so my clients can choose which lashes they would like to incorporate into their look as well. I also encourage feedback from my clients and models throughout the beautification process, because after all, it is not about me. It is about your special day and what YOU want to achieve with the look!
