Featured Make Up Artist of April 2012:

Lisa G Artistry

Lisa G Artistry is a Los Angeles native and at an early age knew she was destined to be in the beauty industry.  Her mother was a graduate from FIDM.  Lisa shared her mother's "passion for fashion" and remembers spending countless hours pouring through her European fashion magazines and it was the hair and makeup that always captured her attention.  Lisa secretly hoped that one day she could re-create the hair and makeup images as her own.  Years later, after earning a dual degree in business and communications at Sonoma State University, she moved to San Francisco.  She found herself working in the corporate world, not being fulfilled.  That's when Lisa went back to school and achieved her esthetic license.  After attaining her license she moved to Los Angeles and fell into what she truled loves - the hair and makeup industry.

Today Lisa has her work printed in magazines such as Italian Vogue, GQ, Hello Magazine, 944, Bay Fashion and The Riviera.  She has worked with Giorgio Armani, Zac Possen, The Oscars, the ESPYS, BET Awards and the celebrity tent at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference.  Celebrities such as Shanna Moakler, Alana Stewart, Sarah McLachlan and Alyssa Campanella (Miss USA 2011) call on Lisa to create looks for their editorials, red carpet and television appearances.  She is also proud to be the Official Makeup Artist for the Miss California, Miss New York and Miss New Hampshire, USA Pageants.  Lisa travels across the nation to beautify title holders for their head shots and events and consults with future contestants about industry makeup tips and tricks for the stage and their interviews.  To see more of Lisa's work, please visit her website www.LisaGArtistry.com
