     My name is Miranda Collins and I am a makeup artist residing in Ypsilanti, Michigan. I am a graduate of Cinema Makeup School where I studied an extensive range of techniques taught by working industry professionals in Los Angeles, California. Makeup has been an integral part of my life for several years.


     As a beauty makeup artist, I strive to help each client look and feel their best. I am skilled in the application of a wide variety of looks - from simple, clean and natural to bold, daring looks that are not for the faint of heart. There is nothing I find more gratifying than making someone feel confident and beautiful for a special occasion (weddings, prom, events, etc). I am primarily a makeup artist, but I am also comfortable with light hair styling.


     Special effects and character makeup hold a special place in my heart. I developed a passion for horror at a young age and have been fascinated with creating makeup effects ever since. I strive to create realistic makeups suitable for film, television, or theatre. Injury, aging techniques and prosthetics are just a handful of the effects that I can produce to bring any character to life.

     I hope that you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it!

my kIT

     Quality makeup application begins with quality tools. I take great pride in maintaining a fully stocked kit with a wide range of products and colors to suit any client. Safety and cleanliness are of the utmost importance. Everything in my kit is thoroughly sanitized after each use. Every item is dated/labeled and regularly swapped out in accordance with product expiration.
     My kit serves as an entire mobile makeup studio. I am capable of providing everything necessary for a complete makeup transformation, including my own work station, chair and lighting. Allow me to turn any space into a studio in a matter of minutes.
