NYC based celebrity, editorial and fashion makeup artist.
Oregon native Michelle Coursey has called New York City home for nearly twelve years. Her work has appeared in national and international magazines, on television shows, the runway and the red carpet. She is represented by Bernstein & Andriulli. Although she originally came to the big city to study acting, she decided that makeup was the career for her. Having a natural talent for making women feel beautiful, Michelle has a gift for creating flawless, pretty faces through make-up and airbrushing. Because she has a background in acting, Michelle knows how it feels to be on the other side of the lens. This brings a serious sensitivity to her style and to her interaction with the subjects, models and actors she works with. Michelle is also known for her easy energy, and clean, elegant touch. She firmly believes that making the client feel comfortable and beautiful is the most important part of her job. She is trained in traditional as well as airbrush makeup, which offers a natural, flawless look to the skin particularly well suited to large format printing or high-definition television. Michelle is also available for weddings, special events, lessons and personal shopping. Hair styling is available on request.
