Makeup by Maura Z

professional freelance makeup artist 



My name is Maura varisco and I am a Pittsburgh area freelance makeup artist. I've been following my passion to do makeup ever since my freshman year of high school in 2009. Around my freshman year i discovered a love for apply cosmtetics andmaking others feel good about themselves. luckily my career allows me to do both of these things and make my own masterpieces as well. 


currently I offer airbrushing application, as well as eyelashes and makeup services. recently i have discovered a passion for special effects makeup as well, all self taught. i can make fake wounds or turn a client into a whimsical creature as well as regular looks. I've been doing professional makeup work on friends and family for proms, weddings, homecomings, musicals, and more for around six years!



My Past Work


In 2011, I worked on the Seneca Valley's All school musical production Little Shop of Horrors and in 2012 I was the head makeup artist for our production Beauty and the Beast. In March of 2013, I was asked by the directors to come back and help with the school's production of Annie. I also did my senior project in January of 2012 on how to apply natural makeup aimed towards younger high school girls - not to mention work I did for other school events such as proms, dances, and homecomings.


Current & Future Work

I have experience doing makeup for weddings & other special events, including skincare & eyelash application. Right now i am working as a makeup artist specialist for my local kohls department store. In September 2014 I had the opportunity to work on many models for Pittsburgh's Fashion Week.
