About the Artist


Hello! My name is Selina Bautista and I am a freelance makeup artist based in Southern California. With an artistic background and an obsession with makeup, becoming a makeup artist was a no brainer. I love what I do, whether it's creating an editorial look or making a bride feel beautiful on her big day. 


In my career, I have worked for numerous makeup brands, as well as working on weddings, celebrities, runway, commercial and E-commerce, designer look-books, and fashion editorials. My work has been published in magazines from the US, Canada, and Europe. I have also worked in beauty retail for brands like Estee Lauder and Clinique, as well as a beauty stylist in Nordstrom, and currently as a Licensed Beauty Advisor for Sephora. 

Being able to do makeup as a career and having the ability to make someone feel beautiful is the best part. It's what I'm most passionate about; creating art on a living canvas. 



I attended Bellus Academy in El Cajon, CA, graduating in August 2008, receiving my esthetician license as well as a certificate of completion for makeup artistry from Make-Up Designory (MUD).
