About us

Muse MakeUp comes from the idea of two professional makeup artists coming together, with their different personalities, and guided by a common artistic passion.
Donatella and Simona are the driving force of this project that has seen them grow together, through collaborations with different fashion photographers, ranging in the field of Beauty, Editorials, Look book and Advertising. Their professional growth has been encouraged also thanks to collaborations with external make-up artists, who have selected them to be part of their technical staff, with the possibility of working in the field of entertainment, cinema and fashion.
Currently they work at Effetti Visivi Studio where they also develop personal projects, both photographic and consulting, with a beauty space created specifically to perform makeup and hairstyle, but also makeup and self-makeup courses, events and fashion shows.

Born in Rome on February 5th 1976 where she lives and works.
Always passionate about make-up, she decided to undertake this activity, through increasingly training courses, which led her to work alongside some great make-up artists in the industry who work mainly in the field of fashion and with whom she could carry out a bunch of great experiences (fashion shows, video clips and commercials).
In 2015 she accepted the chair of teacher of the regional makeup courses at the Academy of Make Up in Terni and Perugia, where she taught until October 2018 techniques of beauty, photographic makeup and fashion.
Beside this, she was in charge of the make-up and hairstyle area for several fashion contests, for which the Academy has taken care of the make-up service.
From September 2018, after having already worked for a long time with Valeria Orlando, who has trained her in fashion, she became a professor in Rome at the V)or Academy, using her own studio Muse Make Up.
In addition to teaching, the strong appeal of photo shoots allowed her to develop her profession in publishing, with several publications, magazines and the web, in collaboration with important Roman photographers.
There have been several opportunities to follow the beauty look of celebrities, whose make up she has taken care of both for red carpet and photo shoots.
She also collaborates with agencies for which she starts a travelling project of specialized training, where she is in charge of both Make Up and Beauty School activities.
The meeting with Simona Pesciaioli marks the birth of Muse Make Up, giving them both more job opportunities, starting a collaboration with the photographic studio Effetti Visivi, where they are in charge of the make-up for all the photo shooting and teachers of their own courses on the spot.

Born in Rome, on April 29th 1986, she began to approach this job during a work experience with the tour operator "Valtur", at the age of 19.
In one of the many trips organized for the realization of corporate advertising catalogs, she got in touch with a professional make-up artist, who gave her many tips to take this path made of tiring climbs but also of great satisfaction, giving her the right input on taking this trip.
Two years later, in 2007, she began her professional career, which led to numerous collaborations with photographic studios and fashion agencies.
This path was perfectly crowned when she met Donatella Alberino, six years ago, with whom the project "Muse Make Up" was born, where different but perfectly compatible styles merged.
She collaborated from 2015 until October 2018 as a teacher at the Academy of Make Up in Terni and Perugia for beauty, photography and fashion.

Our working environment ranges above all in the field of fashion, both in terms of publishing and fashion shows.
