Meet Emma Persaud of Scottsdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Emma Persaud.

Hi Emma, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
My name is Emma, and Makeup Artistry is my superpower; I’m so grateful to be able to share my gift with the world! I’m an experienced makeup artist who creates stunning looks while ensuring clients feel comfortable and confident. My warm and friendly demeanor ensures clients can relax and enjoy the pampering experience. Hailing from Toronto, I traded my snow boots for sandals when I moved to sunny Arizona. Before relocating, I studied makeup artistry in Canada and have been working in the beauty industry for a decade. Boasting diverse skills, I can effortlessly create custom looks ranging from full glamour to natural and dewy on all skin types and skin tones. When designing a look that complements their preference, I will work with my clients to determine the unique makeup look of their dreams while considering their natural features, tastes, outfits, etc. My goal is to enhance natural beauty one face at a time!

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Being introverted by nature, my biggest obstacle was learning to talk and interact with people. In a perfect world, I would’ve preferred having clients magically appear in my chair all day without saying a word, but that isn’t how the world works. My husband played a huge part in helping me come out of my shell, he can talk to anyone at any time about anything, and I never thought I could acquire that skill but if I wanted to have a thriving business, connecting with people is a huge part of it. I fought my shyness and reserved demeanor by going to malls, grocery stores, etc., and talking to random people about my makeup business. I was shocked by their positive response, and I was able to build clientele successfully! If I can do it- anyone can! Step out of your comfort zone if you want your dreams to come to fruition.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m known for my top-notch professionalism and beautiful work that lasts all day. I realized my specialty was natural makeup when I asked my clients why they chose me to do their makeup. They loved how the photos of my clients still looked like themselves.

What’s next?
I’m looking forward to teaching more women that makeup doesn’t have to be confusing or scary; less is more, and makeup is a great tool to build confidence.
