     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). 


     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!
