Cathy Dung, Makeup Artist

My passion for makeup grew from my first love: theatre. Working behind the scenes to build a character from conception to completion fascinated me - being able to take anyone and morph their look to reflect a character; the culmination of the individual and art - drove me to explore the beauty in makeup artistry. From theatre, I moved on to work as an artist for Origins, Urban Decay, Too Faced, MAC Cosmetics, Vincent Longo, and my most recent position, artist and trainer for Koh Gen Do. 

On the side I enjoy taking on additional freelance work for weddings, proms, and commercial (lookbooks, catalogs, commercials, and publications). 

I'm also a member of Thumbtack, a sourcing community that connects the right professional to the service seeker, at the right time.
