Michael Moran

Michael Moran

Michael Moran began his career outside of retail while in New York City in 2000-2001 where he worked as a demonstration artist for a flagship company Tony and Tina Cosmetics. Shortly after, Michael moved on from New York following the horrible tragedy of 9/11 to find his home in the makeup capital of the world, Dallas Texas. Within a few months, Giorgio Armani’s Celebrity Makeup Artist, Tim Quinn, recruited Michael to open the first Armani Cosmetic retail space in Texas at North Park's Neiman Marcus. As a leader in sales and with his own private clientele building, he chose to leave retail and focus on freelance, where being his own "boss of beauty" has created ravishing rewards. Whether it be bridal, Fashion, runway, pageants, international fitness and bikini modeling, or simply door to door home service, Michael has graced the faces of thousands and after 17 years in the industry, he has taken his makeup artistry to international status with a spectrum of clients that span the globe.
