About Me:


Hello friends!

My name is Marie; I'm 28 years old, I live in Upstate New York and I'm a licensed Esthetician, a 3x Certified Makeup Artist and Makeup Designory Educator as well as a certified lash technician. I went to school for Esthetics in 2011, graduated in June of 2012 and got my license in February of 2013.. I got into the skin care industry because I love helping people and making people feel beautiful.. I've struggled with acne my whole life and although I don't have the worst skin, it effects my life and self esteem at times.. And I know how it feels to want to hide in your house until your skin clears up, embarrassed for anyone to see you, and to feel like you have no one to talk to, no one who understands or who feels the way you do.. And that goes for many skin problems in general.. I want everyone to feel beautiful in their own skin and love themselves 100%.... And as an Esthetician and Makeup Artist, I try to help people find the best in their skin, see all of their potential - even on the "bad skin days" and better their self esteem however I can. Whether that be with a facial, treatment, makeup application, or even just a conversation.

I created The Makeup Affair for those reasons; to help anyone I can. Whether it be skin care advice, makeup/beauty tips, or to be someone to confide in. I truly care about people and hope that this blog can help even just one person.

My main goal in this blog is to help people, to make connections around the world and build friendships with my readers as well as fellow bloggers. I will post mainly product reviews as well as makeup looks, favorites, as well as the occasional posts about skincare, hair and maybe even a little fashion!

If you ever want a specific post, or something more product & skin care related, feel free to ask!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoy!

Please feel free to comment, or contact me via any social media or email! Whether it be to request a post you'd like to see, skin care advice, or just someone to talk to. I'm here! <3
