I love what I do. I’m a self-taught makeup artist with 5 years experience. Some of my work has been published in numerous indie magazines in Toronto, NYC, UK, and Spain. My background is in fashion and I’ve done makeup for shows in Phoenix Fashion Week and NYFW. In the past I’ve worked with NEXT, Elite, Ford, Muse, Agency Arizona, ONE, and NYC Model Management models. While most of my work is in fashion and bridal, I’ve started doing makeup for films.
Tarah McDaniel was born and raised in Glendale, AZ where her love for the arts grew into a passion for performing. Tarah has been featured on the Discovery Channel, The Hangover III, Heavy Metal Television, Maxim Magazine, Blood Ink, and DiPTV’s MegaBitch web series.
As a burgeoning young artist in the Phoenix creative scene, Tarah soon learned that she had ample opportunities. Her talents would range from makeup artist, model to actress; Tarah could accomplish anything she set her mind to.
In 2008, Tarah would go on to graduate from the Skin and Makeup Institute as a licensed Makeup Artist and Esthetician. She has since worked as a freelance make-up artist for national brands, private design studios, and many photographers across the United States. It wasn’t long after her career began as a make-up artist, that she would quickly make her transition from behind the scenes, to the front of the lens.
