Marissa Vossen is a Los Angeles-based makeup artist that serves the fashion and entertainment industries. The self-taught cosmetics artist began like many girls do: playing with mom's makeup!
As Marissa got older, she combined her interest in makeup with her passion for dance. She did her own makeup for every show, and people started to take notice. By the time she was in high school, Marissa was doing makeup for friends attending proms, weddings, and special events. That's when she realized that she LOVED what she was doing.
Marissa got hired as a MAC makeup artist in her first year of college. She had a great time, but ultimately decided to follow her dream. She moved to LA and began doing photo shoots for aspiring models and actresses. From there, she moved on to test shoots for various models and magazines.
