A little about me.

Hello! I am Francesca Giaimo, a Los Angeles based makeup artist who was born in New York City and raised in Pasadena, California by a family full of creative types. Surrounded by photographers, hairstylists, illustrators and designers, I became interested in the arts at a young age. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Studio Arts from Loyola Marymount University in 1999 and then received my certification from Joe Blasco School of Makeup in Hollywood the following year. I have been a working makeup artist since graduating (my first job was a Bone Thugs 'n' Harmony music video, remember them?) and I am currently the Beauty Editor of Darling Magazine. I find joy in making my clients feel beautiful through my natural and unintimidating approach to makeup and of course, my sometimes wacky sense of humor... A smile, after all, is the quickest way to look your best!
