It all started when...
I was just a young school girl growing up in Tehran, I spent hours experimenting with different types of painting. Eventually I found that oil was my preferred paint, realism was my favorite type of art and my passion was to project the beauty that I see in my world to the canvas.
When I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s in Art and History, my goal was to start my own art gallery , but my family moved to Canada which changed my focus from painting to makeup.
Shortly after starting school at Blanche McDonald, I received a job offer from Giorgio Armani as a face designer, then Dior as a make up trainer for all Sephora stores in Vancouver and finally for Chanel where I transitioned to the elite makeup team as a national makeup artist. I was also fortunate enough to have the privilege of working with other famous brands such as YSL, Shu Uemura and Bobby Brown. In addition, I was provided the opportunity to work with high end skin care brands such as La Mer, La Prairie, Chantecaille and RéVive, as a skin care specialist.
I started Makeup By Haleh to share my passion and love of art by providing women with the most luxurious makeup experience.
