talia weingarten attributes the origination of her obsession with make up to a hybrid of middle school insecurity and a love of the stage. since then, she has honed her craft and regularly styles for formal events, as well as for actors, musicians, and artists of other creeds. as a firm believer in natural beauty, she begins with techniques that illuminate skin and optimize bone structure. her working philosophy revolves around the principle of make up as a communication technique. she believes make up should capture and convey someone's essence, rather than serve as a facade. she works hands on with each client to ensure that the image they see is who they are on their best day.
