Makiaj Beauty was started in 2009 with Pooja Mehta at the helm. Pooja brought her French training (Ooh la la!) from the renowned Beauty & Fashion School, J.P Fleurimon in Paris, France, to the desert of Phoenix and into the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Makiaj Beauty quickly grew, having been recognized internationally for their work, and now has a tribe (Oh hey!) of several amazing artists. Beyond being best in the business, highly-educated, and with over 50 years of experience combined, Makiaj Beauty is as versatile as the women we serve.

Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, my heart now lies in good ol' Arizona. 9 years of cactus loving, coffee drinking and makeup collecting! My journey started off in Texas after completing Cosmetology School, fast forward 6 years later I was invited to a Fashion Show where I met my Hair and Makeup bestie, Pooja. We have been inseparable ever since! It is so special to me that I am able to work alongside my bestest and do what I love all the while making a woman feel and look her best!

THings I love...

anissa 

I was born and raised in New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment! My love for beauty began at the age of three when I used to ruin my mom’s favorite lipsticks and paint my daddy‘s toenails. My passion for hair and makeup grew while on my high school dance team. I glammed up my teammates for competitions, proms, and weddings. After graduating high school I moved to Arizona to pursue my career in the beauty industry. I am now a Professional MUA/Esthetician. It is an honor to be a part of The Makiaj Beauty Team. I look forward to meeting new clients and amplifying true beauty with my special/magical touch! ✨

Hello! My name is Michaela, & I was born and raised here in Phoenix. Growing up I was surrounded by strong, beautiful women. Their confidence sparked my love for makeup and fashion at a very early age. As a hair and makeup artist my goal is to help women feel more confident in their style, to match their internal beauty! When I’m not in glam mode, I’m usually out in nature or jamming out with friends.

I started my makeup journey in Florida assisting other artists while at cosmetology school at the Aveda Institute and began freelancing after graduating in 2016. After moving across the country from Florida to Arizona, and trading in palm trees for cacti, in the summer of 2019 I found my way to Makiaj Beauty, where I have enjoyed helping amplify our clients’ special moments and milestone occasions. Making people feel comfortable in their own skin and enhancing their natural beauty is what brings me the most joy in this industry. I also enjoy playing around with vibrant colors and artistic concepts, so let’s have fun together! On my days off I love cuddling up with my sweet pup Lucy and scouring secondhand shops for vintage treasures.

 My career in the makeup industry began in 2015 when I frequently shopped at a Sephora store for new product releases and was impulsively building my makeup collection. All those shopping trips landed me a job with Sephora for the next 5+ years, and with that came more experience with makeup application and extensive product knowledge. Throughout the years, I have always done makeup for my friends for various events they were attending, but it wasn’t until this past year that I decided I wanted to do makeup for more than just my friends. I love using makeup to enhance natural beauty and make all my clients look and feel beautiful for their special day. I am so excited to take my artistry to the next level and am honored to be part of the Makiaj Beauty team.

Hello, My name is Lacy Teal and I’m an Arizona native and cosmetologist of 15 years. The majority of my career has been spent making my cut and color clients look and feel amazing. About 3 years ago I decided to pursue bridal and instantly fell in love with the industry. I feel so honored to get to be a part of such an important day. I’m very grateful for the relationships I’ve built with my brides and clients over the years, and I still cry at weddings. Last year was a huge milestone year for me, as I was featured in two magazines and named number 21 on the top 30 Phoenix hairstylists of 2020 list. I’m looking forward to working with all of my amazing brides this year, and making you feel your best on your big day!

Brianna Anderson Photography

There is something about a pregnancy glow that you can't fake. This maternity shoot has been one of our favorites that we were able to partake in. To highlight this shoot we gave these beautiful mothers a bronzed effortless look. It was so important for us to bring their internal glow to life. Thanks to Brianna Anderson we were able to make this vision come to life with her creativity. 

* Shot at The Brexley
