About

Alyssa Romano Professional MUA

Hello, I’m Alyssa Romano!

My fascination of makeup started at a very young age. Watching my mother and grandmother apply makeup was so mesmerizing to me. Even though I was too young to truly understand makeup and why people chose to wear it, I couldn’t help but want to wear it too. Sure the colors, finishes,  and textures of makeup  were magical, but I think it was how the women in my life carried themselves after applying makeup is what really made the makeup come alive! 

Once I was old enough to wear makeup, I took full advantage. I’d read teen magazines and would study the models makeup for inspiration and attempt to recreate it on myself. Before I decided to pursue makeup professionally, I’d have my friends ask me to do their makeup for schools dances and special outings. It wouldn’t be till I headed to college to study for my business undergrad at California State University of Fullerton that I would start my quest as a professional makeup artist. 

I had a short break in between semesters in 2014, so I decided to enroll myself in a one week vigorous makeup certification program. Immediately following the completion of the program I began taking on various makeup gigs. Just to broaden my horizons in the beauty industry, I accepted a position with Lancôme as a certified beauty advisor that consulted clients in makeup, skincare, and fragrance. Later I would accept another beauty advisor position in beauty and cosmetics at a prestige department store working under all the currently trending beauty brands. 

All this leads me to where I am now. Currently I am focusing on my own business as a freelance makeup artist. I am super versatile when it comes to my artistry, and by that I mean I don’t limit myself to any certain kind of makeup job. Whether I’m doing makeup on set, or have the opportunity and privilege to get a client ready for something special happening in their life, I have the opportunity to do what I love, and that’s to watch the women that sit in my chair carry themselves more confidently then they did when the arrived.
