About the Artist

I’m a Bay Area Makeup Artist and I love my job! When I’m not doing makeup, I enjoy spending time with my precious daughter and amazing husband. I hope you enjoy reading my blog! My goal is to educate my fellow makeup lovers about products and showcase my work for those in search of a professional makeup artist. Whether it’s Bridal makeup, party makeup, a fun look for a photo shoot, or a private/group workshop, I’d love to work with you in creating a flawless look!

    Hey I wanna become a makeup artist In order to get a Job somewhere do I need to take cosmetology classes first ? I’m only 18

      Hi Jen! You don’t need to have a Cosmetology license to do makeup, but I’m not sure how it works if you were to do makeup out of a hair salon. If you’re doing makeup as a freelance artist, you don’t need a license.

    hi:) i came across your instagram when looking through tags and I love you work! I’m only 17 and I’m currently trying to work my way into the make-up industry. I was just wondering if you had any pointers on how to go about starting off my career? I’d really love to work in MAC but im not to sure how to go about applying. it would be a great help, thanks x

      Hi hun! Thanks for reaching out to me! I think you’re heading in the right direction by trying to get a job at Mac (or any makeup counter). I’m not sure what the application process is for Mac but you should definitely go in and ask a manager about it. If you can’t get a job there, you should totally try Sephora so you can get a wide range of product knowledge, since they have a million brands there. Hope this helped…feel free to email me anytime: makeupbysharona@gmail.com

    Hi Sharona,

    huge fan of your work! For an aspiring makeup artist, what products/brushes would you recommend we have in the kit? Any other advice on starting out.. (how to get clients etc)? Thank you!

    Hi Sharona:)
    Came across your instagram page and love it! Very informative- thank you. I was curious, will you be holding another class here in the bay area any time soon? I would love to be able to attend. I am an aspiring artist and would love to soak up some of your knowledge:)
    Thank you sooo much!

      Hi there,
      Thank you so much! I probably won’t have another workshop for a few months since my due date is next week! I do hold 1-on-1 lessons and will be resuming these at the end of April if you are interested. Email me at makeupbysharona@gmail.com if you would like more info!
