Desiree Balzaretti bio resume portfolio info
Desiree Balzaretti began her makeup career while attending New York University, studying Special FX makeup through the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. Influenced by the vibrant city, fashion and her fascination with gender issues, she began doing makeup for New York theatre and independent films. After graduating with a BA from NYU with a degree in Communications and Womenís Sexuality, Desiree relocated back home, to San Francisco. This move has proved to be a positive step and has allowed her to work easily between San Francisco and L.A.

Desiree is fueled by makeupís ability to transform and the visible transformation she sees in each of her subjectís. She has worked with production companies, photographers, and individual clients, gore fanatics, among others, and hopes to continue doing makeup as long as she possibly can. She operates under the philosophy that people can be movable pieces of art and aims to reflect that in all the makeup she applies. *Please note all concept and styling by Desiree Balzaretti, unless otherwise noted.
