Michelle Michalak

  • Makeup Artist
  • Detroit, MI

My makeup roots began long ago in Detroit, MI. Growing up in this city there were quite a few characters that I came across. Now, I can create them!

My career path led me to Los Angeles where I really began to learn the ropes of my craft. From there I was fortunate to meet some very talented artists who helped me grow along the way. It's about sharing and learning from one another that keeps us inspired.

Whether I am working backstage, onset, or just making someone feel good about themselves, I can truly say that I love what I do.

Thank you for your time!
