RITA'S CAREER as a make-up artist began to emerge more than
a decade ago when she was growing up in Los Angeles. As a youngster, she put her artistic inclination to use by doing the make-up of the neighborhood children. As a teenager, she did the make-up of her mother and her mother's friends before a night on the town.
Over the many years of working as a make-up artist, Rita has developed extensive experience working with different photographers, actors, brides, schools and others that are interested in developing greater expertise in choosing, applying, and wearing make-up that matches their skin type, personality, and lifestyle.
She has used many products and has found that some of these products work better than others do. The experience of sampling different products informed her decision to develop her own make-up line, "MAKE-UP BY RITA", that works well with people of varying skin types, age, and color. The makeup Rita created lasts all day and all night, with minimal touch-ups, and still looks great.
RITA TAKES GREAT PRIDE in sharing her tips, techniques, and products with other make-up artists, as well as her expertise with clients. Passing on knowledge to others is one of her favorite aspects of being a make-up artist. She frequently facilitates small seminars, make-up classes, and individual make-up lessons for those that are interested in looking their best.
"Having great make-up is very important.
But knowing how and where to put it is key."
RITA IS VERY EXPERIENCED with bridal make-up and works year round with brides of different ages. She has not only worked with the bride, but also the mother-of-the-bride and other bridal attendants to prepare them to look their best on the wedding day and in the photographs. Rita has a calm, relaxing demeanor that often provides many brides with the extra added reassurance that they are in great hands!
"It's very rewarding to make brides, and their family and friends,
feel special and look great. Not only for that moment, but for
their everlasting photographs."
