With over 15 years of experience, Maggie Paridon has become a highly sought-after Makeup Artist. Maggie has had a love for makeup artistry from a young age. She began painting in high school and enjoyed the arts of dance and singing from age 3, all which shaped her future as a professional Makeup Artist with a passion for the entertainment industry. Over the years Maggie has had the opportunity to work with many notable names in entertainment such as Kesha, Tina Fey, Machine Gun Kelly, Dwayne Wade and Carole Radziwill. Aside from Celebrity work, Maggie spends her days on commercial sets for International brands as well as leading and coaching her team of Bridal Artists.

Her work ethic, attention to detail, ability to always think ahead and precise color and product recommendations are just a few of the great qualities Maggie displays. She truly has a passion for what she does and makes every client feel like they are the most important person no matter the occasion.

I know that every face tells a different story and my mission is to bring that story to life. I strongly believe that makeup is one of the most impactful ways to express yourself and whether your story is a tale of natural clean beauty, a touch of classic, modern to trendy, or something a bit more sultry and tempting you deserve to look and feel beautiful. After becoming licensed in 2012 from Middle Georgia Technical College, I became entranced by the world of makeup and worked day and night to perfect my craft. I then accepted a Makeup Artist position that allowed me to become an expert on all skin types, ethnic groups, and ages. Shortly there after, I was honored with the privilege to work with the Arkansas Ballet Company. As my passion for makeup grew I became addicted to making women feel their best and became certified to teach makeup application, so women could make themselves feel beautiful too. Makeup is more than a hobby to me. It is art, it is beauty, it is passion and I am devoted to delivering the very best and making sure that you feel your very best.

My love and passion for makeup artistry started at a young age, creating looks on family and friends, and grew into a career in 2019. Makeup has inspired me to express my creativity and be able to create beautiful and meaningful work! I love helping my clients enhance their features and feel beautiful inside and out. Nothing is better than seeing a smile on my clients face after they see the completed look! I focus on attention to detail and truly listen to my clients needs so we can achieve the look that they want for their special day! I keep up with the latest makeup trends and will continue learning and growing my makeup skills! When I’m not doing makeup, you can find me exploring Cleveland with my fiancé and my dog Stella!
I have had passion in the beauty industry ever since I can remember. I went to Raphael’s School of Beauty in 2019 for Esthetics and that truly solidified that this was the path for me. My love for makeup began at a very young age, and continued to grow throughout the years. I started out doing stage makeup for my cheerleading team, then to Prom/Homecoming looks and now Bridal! I specialize in soft glam & modern makeup. I am also a Medical Esthetician during the week. It is so rewarding to help clients achieve healthy, glowing skin for their big day and beyond. A personal goal of mine when doing makeup is to make you truly feel beautiful in your own skin! I can’t wait to work with you on your special day!
Makeup sales and artistry have been my core profession for the past 22 years. A start with Shiseido and Chanel helped strengthen my knowledge in skincare and color, preparing me for a 16 year career with MAC Cosmetics where I worked as an artist, manager, and trained staff as a regional educator. I believe every woman is beautiful and take pride in using my knowledge to provide a true collaboration with my clients for all of their life’s special moments. My favorite makeup looks are the ones that naturally enhance your features. But I can also turn the glam all the way up! I sincerely look forward to being a part of your special occasion!
