Marsha Page has been behind more award winning looks than most artists create over a lifetime. Her work has been nominated for Emmy awards in professional makeup artistry. Yet, she found herself constantly having to problem solve for the range of skin tones that exist beyond those commonly associated with white skin. The market was literally flooded with products for this narrow range of skin tones, yet hardly any products could be found for those skin colors from the lightest of browns to the darkest of blacks. She had decided that enough was enough.
She set out, as The Melanin Therapist, to specialize in the unique nuances, shades, & undertones of melanated skin. Her makeup artistry goes well beyond the surface to enhance the natural beauty of anyone sitting in her chair. Her desire is to make her subjects feel confident and empowered in themselves & in their own skin.
The Melanin Therapist was born out of the desire to share her journey of empowerment and self-love, through the passion for makeup artistry with all people of color in the African diaspora.
