Virginia

Virginia Le Fay is a self-taught professional makeup artist based in Miami, FL. She derives much of her aesthetic from her love, respect, and exposure to opera, theater, and cinema throughout her youth in her native Spain. By combining these forms of art and transforming “moments” in them with her makeup tools, she has finally found her creative expression.

Virginia has experience in print, video, fashion, runway and bridal. Her background includes musical theater and a Bachelor of Science in Motion Picture Production and Art Photography from the University of Miami, in which she gained experience working both on stage and behind the lens. Upon graduation she joined the world of M.A.C. Cosmetics breaking away on her own after five and a half years. She is currently represented by FORD Artists.

Virginia’s creative work has been published internationally in magazines such as Vouge brazil, Hungarian Marie Claire, Jalouse, L’Officiel, Wallpaper, AIE, M Magazine, MAXIM, Highlights, Noi.se, Stijl, Ocean Drive, Blink, Materic Girl, Du Jour, Chaos, Level, Best of Intima, BG Italia, Iconography, MUP (Make Up Professional), Fault, Vaga, Nicotine, to name a few.

Her goal is to share her craft around the world and work with an inspiring caliber of artists with whom to complement her artistic vision.    You can view more of her work at:  Virginia Le Fay
