Maribel Hernandez Makeup Artist with Kelli Serio and Pure Love Photography

How long have you been doing this and how did you become a make-up artist?

I was first exposed to the world of beauty at an early age thanks to my mother, a licensed hairstylist who has been in the hair and beauty business for over 30 years. While in high school, I continuously received numerous requests from friends and family members to do their makeup for weddings, sweet sixteen, and other special occasions. I obtained formal make-up training at Makeup Designory School in Burbank, CA. Upon successful completion of my make-up program, I dedicated myself to help women find their perfect makeup look for their special day by founding Passion For Make-Up. I am all about accentuating women’s natural beauty.

We love your bridal make-up and hair services and your portfolio. What really sets Passion For Make-Up apart from other make-up artists and hair stylists?
