My name is Make-up Dr. Shari (aka, Shari Smith) I was a corporate 9-to-5’er turned make-up/hair “haute” girl. I graduated, with
honors, from acclaimed Vancouver Film School’s program, Make-up Design for Film & Television. I am currently working in Los Angeles, CA as a makeup/special fx artist, wig maker & writer.
I write for Examiner.com as their LA Make-up Examiner, writing beauty articles and occasionally covering events like IMATS LA. I recently created a professional facebook page http://on.fb.me/mkdrshari. I have a passion for make-up and a wig for every day of the week. I like to mix things up and try new things.
As a freelance make-up artist I have done make-up for several short films. I have a listing on IMDB for a few feature films as well http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4407507/. I have recently started a youtube channel and my how-to videos are listed under Tyra Banks “Type F” channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49Be8HjnSW8
Some of my favorite brands include M.A.C., Make Up For Ever, Napoleon Perdis, Benefit, Eve Pearl, L’Oreal, Urban Decay, NARS and Bobbi Brown to name a few. For skin care I am big on Neutrogena, Keihl’s, Clinique and Embryolisse. I love false eyelashes, especially the half/quarter/accent lashes for the way they really open up the eyes and change a woman’s attitude completely. Cutting up and layering the false lash pieces is also a fun technique.
I have a passion for the beauty. I love to search out new and interesting things. I am constantly trying to learn and improve my craft. I love to talk about beauty. I love to help others.
