For those of you who don’t know much about me, i would like to take this opportunity to formally introduce myself and give you a little background history at how my career first started as a Glamour Makeup artist/salon owner.
After completing my university degree in bachelor of design & technology ( i was planning on becoming a high school design & technology teacher).
I knew i was not fully satisfied as my passion was always all things GLAM! Makeup, hair & beauty was always my calling from a very young age, as all i remember was watching my mother from young apply her makeup and perfectly straight liquid liner and being fascinated!
Every chance i had getting into her makeup draw and practicing on myself!
So in 2007 just after university i took the initiative to sign myself up to the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy and completed my diploma in Glamour & Special Effects Makeup Artistry.
From there i was immediately offered a working position within the company, where i worked in various stores around Sydney, for a short period of time managed the Paddington Academy and assisted in teaching Makeup workshops, and got the opportunity to work on many events along side Napoleon himself.
After almost 7 amazing years I then decided to pursue my dream and attempt to branch out and begin my own solo career as a freelance makeup artist. By 2014 – in a shor time frame of just over a year I worked from my parents home (where we had setup a little studio room) for me to glam up my clients.
I was very overwhelmed by the incredible clients response I had recieved in just over the period of 12 months, then i decided to expand further to my next dream of opening up my very own makeup studio / hair salon.
In 2015 I travelled overseas to the US to take the opportunity to further my skill and complete one on one makeup workshops with my idols, celebrity makeup artist Lillit and Hrush in Los Angeles. Whilst in Los Angeles I worked with many amazing people and also was fortunate enough to work on the face of reality TV star and glam icon Lilly Ghallchi for variour red carpet events. After returning back to Sydney I found my very first retail space and Marias Beauty Bar was launched in the area of Kogarah Bay Sydney.
My passion as a make-up artist and salon owner is to provide a unique quality of service for my clients and to ensure that not matter what the age – All leave HAPPY BEAUTIFUL AND GALMOROUS!
I thank you with all my heart for your support throughout my journey.
Much Love Maria
