Mary Phillips is known for painting the faces of some of the most beautiful models in the game and she is also the master of a glowy yet sultry beat.

When she’s not transforming your faves into goddesses, she’s speaking on panels and collaborating with brands like Nudestix to bring makeup lovers a curated color collection for people on the go.

Her previous work experiences include working at a salon and working in a mall during high school.

Phillips started out really young and she has always been really interested in makeup. Any makeup her mom had, she was into it and playing with it. Then, she found out she could do it as a career.

She was lucky because she grew up in L.A. so she was able to live at home for a while while assisting makeup artists for free. It was way before social media, when there was no YouTube so the only way of learning was to work for different artists.

She would take out their garbage, walk their dogs and do things like that. That’s how she started—assisting anyone who would let her. It was like her college.

Phillips knew she would end up becoming a freelance celebrity makeup artist, she had no other option and she pushed through till she made it.

You may recognize her flawless makeup looks on the faces of very important personalities such as Addison Rae, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, Hailey Rhode Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian West and Priyanka Chopra Jonas to name a few.

She is represented by Blended Strategy, for bookings and brand partnerships you can contact her agent:
