Hello, I’m Leona
Owner and Lead Makeup Artist of
Leona Emm Beauty, LLC
Hello! My name is Leona and I’m the proud owner and lead makeup artist (MUA) for Leona Emm Beauty, LLC. I am a glam loving Jersey girl, wife and mother of two boys. Makeup is my creative outlet, a way to express myself, my happy place and I love to share that space with my wonderful clients
“MAKEUP IS MY CREATIVE OUTLET, A WAY TO EXPRESS MYSELF, MY HAPPY PLACE AND I LOVE TO SHARE THAT SPACE WITH MY WONDERFUL CLIENTS”
I have always loved all things glam. I credit the women in my life like my mother and aunts who always reminded me of royalty with the way they carried themselves. Their makeup was always flawless, to match their wonderful sense of style. There was something about their air and manner of walking that exuded elegance. I wanted to look like them, I wanted to be them. However, oddly enough, the beauty industry was not my first stop.
In 2002, I went into law enforcement, one of the least glamorous, while at the same time, rewarding and satisfying jobs ever. I never wore makeup on the job, but on my off days, full glam was always on the menu. That need for glam is what lead me to pursue a career in makeup artistry.
“I pride myself on being a beauty and bridal expert and educator”
I pride myself on being a beauty and bridal expert and educator. I received my International Makeup Artist Certification from Glam Lab Makeup Studios and was hand picked by the owner to later become a lead instructor for their makeup classes offered in the DC, Maryland and Virginia areas. It is upon this foundation that Leona Emm Beauty LLC was built.
I have a highly diverse client base creating looks for men and women of all backgrounds. I have expertise in all types of media from photo shoots to bridal. My business is to help you look and feel even more amazing by creating timeless looks through makeup artistry. No matter the occasion, I have you covered. Let’s get glam!
