Mia Valdez Beauty
I am certified in beauty makeup application for special events, such as galas, awards ceremonies, baby showers, quinceneras, etc, as well as portraits, headshots, boudoir, and more! I have also been trained in avant-garde and special effects makeup, such as movie makeup and Halloween (clowns, zombies, etc). I also have experience with hair styling, so I can be booked for both hair and makeup for all occasions.
How Business Creates Value:
Makeup can cover unwanted blemishes, dark spots, and redness, as well as enhance natural features for a bolder look that can be captured through the camera lens. Photographers will spend less time editing the face, and the subject will feel more confident and radiant.
Editorial, avant-garde, and special effects makeup are reserved for projects and photoshoots that are fun and out-of-the-box, usually reserved for print work in magazines and advertisements, tv and film, or holidays like Halloween.
--Editorial makeup can pump up the drama with some graphic eyeliner or false lashes below the eye.
--Avant-Garde makeup can tell an intricate story using objects and styles, such as feathers/rhinestones/paint in unconventional ways, highly teased hair, and elaborate costumes.
--Special effects are reserved for wounds and gore, transforming a person into someone else or creepy creature/monster, and Halloween, of course!
Makeup can be magical, and everyone needs a little bit of magic in their lives.
How Member Creates Value:
Every day, I help give women confidence by bringing their true, inner beauty outward for all to see. Natural, glowing skin is my specialty, and you'll never have to worry about your makeup looking thick and "cakey." When I'm creative, I delve into the abnormal and unconventional. As a jack of all trades, I crave to continue learning and practicing my skills. As an academic in training, I research, critique, and strive to master every technique. No matter the circumstances, my kindness and empathy puts everyone at ease, and you will never feel uncomfortable in my hands. I listen to what YOU want, and execute with precision.
Although I can get very creative and out of the box with application, it is never my goal to change who you are, but to help you shine from within.
"I was attending a formal event and found Mia on google. She came to my home to apply full face make-up. The results were beautiful and she is kind, courteous and professional! She also replies to messages timely, which was wonderful as I found her late in the game and had a lot of questions. She cares about her clients and wants to make sure you are completely satisfied." --Kelli S.
"Mia is a wonderful MUA! Very talented and professional. She knows how to bring out your best features and knows how they will be able to be photographed. She did my wedding make-up and I felt so beautiful!" --Laura F.
"I highly recommend Mia for your makeup needs! Not only is she highly skilled, but I recently took her makeup classes - and it was amazing for tips and tricks. She structures her class with learning so you know the wrong way to do things and then provides you with the right way - including what brushes to use, how to apply, what to watch for and more. And then you do it on yourself under her watchful eye. My contouring and highlighting is so much better now! --Justine HB.
