Marcia always admired her mother – her makeup idol. She was particularly fond of her Dior palette and the variety of lipstick shades in her collection. The morning of her third grade picture day, out came the frosty pink lipstick and her mom said, “Just a little for your picture today”. Marcia’s mom had officially welcomed her into the makeup club. At the age of 13, Marcia adopted the essential black eyeliner, black mascara, and Spice lip liner combo for her everyday look. Teen magazines held her main makeup inspirations and you could find her trying and day dreaming about the latest trends. Marcia innately used makeup as a way to enhance her natural features.
Marcia was a conscientious student which led her to attend post secondary school at the university level. She took this opportunity to learn about her Latin American roots. She graduated from the University of Toronto in June 2011 with an HBA degree in Latin American History and Languages. She knew this wasn’t in line with her truest passion, but Marcia believes school is never a waste of money or time. Spending years working in arts administration, she felt she was missing a major component in her life – a creative outlet. It was time to push her truest passion to the forefront. Fast forward to 2014; Marcia had the opportunity to represent a new beauty line created to empower women. A self-taught makeup artist, Marcia wanted to solidify her skills by enrolling in Sheridan College’s Makeup Techniques program.
As she built her skills, Marcia discovered that at the root of her passion, the good energy exchanged with the women sitting in her makeup chair added a priceless asset to her life. Although Marcia’s business focuses on makeup application, creating an upbeat environment is essential for her business. Every woman has a unique and inspirational story to tell and she feels privileged to be their audience. With a combination of natural skills, a listening ear, and her magical brush, Marcia provides her clients with good vibes while making them look their absolute best.
