  3. Paola was an absolute pleasure to work with. She takes directions well and also provides her professional input. The film would not have been the same without her amazing skills in makeup artistry. Would definitely recommend to anyone who requires professional makeup artistry

Why book Paola Margarita?

  1. 1
    As a 'germ freak' I always make sure that my brushes, both makeup and hair, are cleaned before each appointment.. I clean the brushes with alcohol between each client and shampoo them when I get home.
  2. 2
    Friendly and Professional
    I like my clients to feel happy and relaxed around me. It is in my nature to be friendly with everyone that I meet. So expect to see me with a smiling face. I am aware of the boundaries with my clients so I don't cross line and offend anyone.
  3. 3
    Quality Products
    All my products are sourced with quality in mind. I also consider ethical and environmental issues when buying products.
  4. 4
    When you book me, I am happy to provide support and advice of what looks to go for or products to use. I am always happy to help.
  5. 5
    I like to support people or animals in need. So some of what you pay will go to a charitable cause.

    I love what I do!
    I love being creative! I make sure that I work hard so that you will look your best and love it. I also look at balance and longevity. I strive to enhance beauty and make sure that the look will last all day and all night (and until the next morning).
