Michelle Michalak

  • Makeup Artist
  • Detroit, MI

Based out of Detroit, MI I have been a makeup artist since 2001. My career path led me to Los Angeles, CA where I really began to learn the ropes of my craft. From there I was fortunate to train under some of Los Angeles' best makeup artists in the industry.

My warm demeanor, attention to detail and thirst for continuing education has kept me working on great projects and people. Whether I am working backstage, onset, or a special event I can truly say that I love what I do.

Currently I am based in Detroit, MI and working in commercial, print, and special events.

Thank you for your time!
