About Sara Franzese
Sara grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio suburb of Chagrin Falls. With an innate appreciation and love of the arts, she studied ballet for 15 years and theater during high school. She went on to graduate with a B.A. in Art History from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. During college she spent a semester abroad in Rome, Italy immersing herself in the art and architecture of her favorite city. After receiving her M.A. from Fashion Institute of Technology in N.Y.C., she attended Makeup Designory for a certificate in Beauty Makeup, which included training for fashion, bridal, theater, avant garde, and tv/film. In addition, she uses her vast knowledge of skin care as an integral component to her makeup artistry. Sara thrives on being surrounded by beauty as her passion for color, design, and symmetry infiltrates every aspect of her studies and experience with art and makeup.
Sara has worked in salons, fashion shows, editorial and advertising shoots, and television throughout N.Y.C. She now resides back in her hometown of Chagrin Falls with her husband, Steve, and furry "kids", Champion and The Black Pearl. She is available throughout the Cleveland area for TV and advertising as well as bridal and event makeup, personal consultations and lessons. Airbrush makeup is standard in all applications. Light hairstyling is available upon request. Travel requests beyond the Cleveland area are always considered.
