It's me! Marlissa Mo'Nique, the makeup artist, behind all of the beautiful and uniquely painted faces...

When I first decided to pursue makeup as a Freelance Artist, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I knew personally that I hated wearing tons and tons of makeup and I wanted it to look natural and of course flawless! I'm sure I stand in agreement with a lot of ladies when I say "I don't like wearing a lot of makeup!" I hate feeling oily and overly made up like I can't touch my face lol! So I decided that I needed to learn more about skin care, face shapes, different types of creams and foundations before putting my brand out there!

After attending Industry Makeup Academy, working alongside several photographers and having the opportunity to learn from some of the BEST celebrity makeup artists in the industry, I realized that not only do I want my looks to be natural but that I want to turn my passion for makeup into so much more! My dream of having Nique Cosmetics one day isn't so far fetched now! I'm speaking this into existence!

A few "beauty" things about me....

  • My Celebrity Makeup Artist Crush - Renny Vasquez (I love him with my life!)
  • My Dream Actress to Work With - Kerry Washington (#flawless)
  • My Favorite Cosmetic Line -- Makeup Forever (Everything!)
  • My Favorite Store - Sephora (I'd spend the night in there if I could! OMG!)

Watching these things unfold has been amazing and even more rewarding than I could have ever imagined!

This is just the beginning of my journey, so stay tuned.... #niquefaces
