Tiana Rae Holiday

Tiana Rae Holiday grew up in the small, mountain community of Big Bear Lake, CA. Being the perfect balance of tomboy and beauty queen (Miss Big Bear), she split her time equally between the community's sports programs and her mother's beauty salon, which resembled Truvy's from Steel Magnolias.

Tiana started doing makeup in her mother's salon before moving on to freelancing. She then opened Armani Cosmetics in South Coast Plaza in Orange County, CA. To further her knowledge and career, she later moved on to M.A.C Cosmetics which opened up a whole new world of products, artists, opportunities, and many lifelong friends. The opportunities afforded Tiana allowed her to travel throughout Southern California and Utah perfecting her craft. Throughout her M.A.C years, Tiana continued to freelance before assisting world-renowned celebrity makeup and hair artist Natalie MacGowan Spencer, leading her to be signed to the MacGowan Spencer Agency in Los Angeles, CA.

Almost 17 years after moving "off the hill" to Long Beach, CA, Tiana has established herself as an accomplished, published professional makeup artist. Her work has taken her internationally as a celebrity makeup artist. Being based in Southern California, she continues to work bicoastally, from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, and throughout all of Southern California. Her creative skills include bridal, studio work, media makeup, music videos, male grooming and airbrush, with an emphasis on HD. She continues to work in fashion, television, video, print, red carpet, editorial, and on location. Recently, she started working with Maile Pacheco, founder of Beglammed, to support the entertainment industry. Tiana continues to grow her business and network within the industry.

Tiana owes her career to her mother and her salon, her team at Armani Cosmetics, her M.A.C Mates, her mentor, Natalie, Maile with BeGlammed and her vast network of makeup artists and hairstylists who have become like family. She was raised to help support others or you fail and that there is enough sun for everyone to shine.

Much love and positive vibes!
