Quiera Marcella got started as a makeup artist while attending Brooks institute of photography in 2004 in Santa Barbara, California. To begin her career, she modeled for a test shoot where she displayed a natural skill as an artist. Quiera was then hired by local photographers within the Santa Barbara and the Los Angeles areas to work as a makeup artist and by no surprise, she stood up to the task.
She continued her craft with leading companies such as Sephora and MAC. Where she showcased an array of proficiency in her works. As a result, Quiera obtained several makeup certifications.
She later moved into the position of Beauty Stylist at Nordstrom where she was trained by several respectable lines such as NARS, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Shiseido and Trish McEvoy to name a few.
As an artist , Quiera believes that the moment you stop learning is when you put a halt to the advancement of your artistry. She never settles as she is always in search of new techniques to improve her skills. As a candidate for details, she seeks profound knowledge of the products to provide the best services. Her aim is to take away the pressure and confusion of today's makeup and enhance one's outer beauty with a look that last.

The fist time Q did my makeup, I knew I'd never let anyone else touch my face besides her. Her attention to detail, her precision and her passion exceed any makeup artist I've ever had. Her ability to make you truly feel the most gorgeous you've ever felt is above and beyond! I love how she explains exactly what's she using and how to use it. She uses all makeup lines too which I love. There's nothing off limits for this girl and there's nothing she can't do! I cannot say enough good things about this Queen. She's something so special and magical!
Q Marcella is an AMAZING makeup artist! I have had the pleasure of working with her on a number of photo shoots. When she is on my team I am able to achieve stunning images with little to no Photoshop required. I cant say enough nice things about her professionalism and talent. 10 thumbs up for this lady!

I am Absolutely Blown away EVERY time I make an appointment to have any service done by Quiera. Quiera takes her time to explain the products that she uses on my face. Quiera has been my go-to person for all my beauty questions. She knows what look/colors I am wanting and suggest when that might not work for my skin type. She introduces me to new product lines and skin products. That is very important to me because our skin changes as the season changes. I cannot say enough good things about Quiera.
