HAIR&MAKEUP: Marlene Lopez

Published in RAW Features

Marlene's makeup and hair talents have all been self-taught and enhanced as she has continued to further her education. Her skills have allowed her to work as key MUA for the Ms.Malibu pageant along with makeup and hair on celeberties for special events such as BET awards, VMAs, and Grammys.

High fashion, runways, student films, special fX, photoshoots, weddings, theatre, film & TV are projects Marlene loves to indulge in, and now as a RAWArtist, Lopez showcases in the cities of Hollywood, Newport Beach, Pomona, Riverside,and Santa Monica.

Marlene has a unique and creative style. She says, "My art is using the face and body as my canvas ending with a painting that leaves you wanting more."

Lopez also mentors in an afterschool program called Power in Pink, put together from Under Ground Girls of Hip Hop, bringing in the Glam squad and keeping these girls motivated and involved. Marlene is also an active volunteer for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Charity HITS 4 HOPE Celeb softball games. Last but not least, most of her time is put in at Perla Hair Studio in Newport Beach as key MUA and hair stylist!
