I am a gifted makeup artist with an in-depth knowledge of makeup, cosmetics and most importantly skincare. I possess a strong visual sense and creative imagination. I am goal oriented and able to build lasting relationships with my clients.


I have undergone a variety of courses to ensure I am always up to date on the latest industry trends. From completing a masterclass with celebrity MUA Mario Dedivanovic and attending Canadian Beauty College I have gained a number of tips and techniques which are sure to make my ventures a success. This past year I completed a number of makeup looks for FAT as well as Mahistrado Fashions. I also assisted the makeup director to ensure all models were organized and on time for their calls. I am very confident in my abilities to stay on trend with makeup looks as well as meeting the needs of my clients. ​

Cher Marin

My name is Cherowin, preferably Cher. I am a makeup artist from Mississauga. Makeup is my passion. I remember I used to sneak in my sister's room when she was out to use her makeup on myself. I used to even be the person in school that walked into class with a full face glam. Now, I love a natural look on myself, but doing different techniques and looks on different faces is what I love to do.
