Mandy Karsenti is a professional Makeup Artist born and raised in Los Angeles. She is bilingual, speaking French and English fluently. Mandy’s second home is Paris, where her mother was born and raised. Since she was a child, she would take frequent trips to Paris to visit family and loved the fashion and beauty lifestyle.
Mandy began her personal dream of being a makeup artist just after her early college years. She felt compelled to learn all aspects of makeup technology, reading all the makeup books and magazines she could find.
Mandy attended beauty guru Kandee Johnson's Glaminar in Los Angeles, receiving a Pro Makeup artist course certificate from Kandee Johnson herself.
In 2011, she trained with industry makeup artists at the Makeup Designory in Burbank, CA and received her certificate in airbrushing and special effects.
After building her portfolio, Mandy expanded her knowledge by training and working with Long-Time-Liner Contour makeup, the top semi permanent makeup salon located in Beverly Hills, CA. Working with highest quality pigments and machinery, she received her license in Semi-Permanent Makeup in 2012.
After this experience, Mandy decided that she missed the creativity of makeup, color, and textures and is now working as a sales consultant for Planet Beauty, a growing, premier cosmetics and beauty supply retail chain based in Southern California.
Mandy keeps up with the current trends with magazines and beauty blogs. She draws inspiration from all the gorgeous colors of nature around her, as well as talented makeup artists and beauty gurus such as Ve Neil, Francois Nars, Rae Morris, Lisa Eldridge, and Tanya Burr.
Mandy enjoys uncovering amazing new makeup and beauty products. One day, she hopes to own her own beauty store with her favorite products, or even develop her own line of makeup and beauty products.
