Mary Gastineau Make Up
Freelance make up artist for fashion, beauty, film, theater & stage.




I am a freelance makeup artist working in all areas of makeup artistry with my focus being in Film and TV.  Having graduated from Makeup Forever Academy’s Master’s Program in NYC, a program where artistry and creativity is the priority when completing comprehensive training in Beauty, Fashion, Editorial, Film, and TV including character development, SFX, Stage, and Theater.  I have most recently attended classes at the Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles.  My skills include, but are not limited to, HD makeup for screen and the application of realistic major and minor wounds, prosthetics, airbrush, tattoo cover, bald cap application, aging makeup, and hair laying.

Within all of my careers I have always had an interest and active role in promoting one’s natural beauty and positive self-esteem.  I believe in the perfect balance of promoting intrinsic beauty and the power of makeup while helping people to look and feel their very best.  

I have trained under and worked with some of the most respected names in the industry such as Rod Maxwell, Ve Neill, Floriane David, Juan-Carlos Salazar, Dany Sanz, Michael Keys, Craig Lindberg, and Jared Janus.  I am based in Philly and LA and enjoy traveling for work anywhere there are opportunities.
