Let’s dive in the touching story of the talented freelance MUA Estefania Suarez, a lesson of both humility and will.
Estefania, can you walk us through your personal and freelance MUA story?
I grew up in the atmosphere of a loving and respectful home and family. My 3 siblings and I are all married now, living our best lives and we are still very close.
A life change
When I graduated in Modern Languages, I started working as a flight attendant. 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with a Linfoma No Hodgkin cancer and I had to stop working. I suddently realized that it was a time to do something bigger with my life. Makeup has always been a passion, and, in a way, my health condition helped me switch to a freelance MUA career.
Freelance MUA career
I am self-thought professional but I also attended several courses with some amazing artists such as Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist) and Tamanna Roashan from Dress Your Face.
I have been working as a Freelancer MUA for the last 3 years now, I do makeovers for weddings, all kinds of social events and editorial looks. Makeup is all about emotions, I love seeing a confident and strong woman after a makeover. The feeling of being, somehow, partly responsible for that is the best reward in the world.
