Celebrating Women’s History Month, makeup artist Marsha Page, the CEO of Marsha’s Makeovers, is hosting an event that will empower young girls and adolescents. March 31, at Brooklyn Ballroom of Bric Arts Media House, Page presents “A Celebration of Phenomenal Women, Paving the Way for Our Girls.” During the event, there will be an all-star panel and live performance from the “Afropean” duo Les Nubians.
Girls from the age of 7 through age 18 will be shown women who embrace their beauty and are very successful. Girls between these ages are very impressionable, so Page believes that this is the time where they need the most positive enforcement and motivation. Along with herself, there will be a “Phenomenal Women Panel,” which will be sharing very inspirational stories about moving forward despite adversity.
“I feel that it is important to empower young women and girls because they are our future,” Page told the Amsterdam News. “We all need encouragement, and we need to have a realistic view that your dreams and goals are achievable. I always try to encourage my girls about how great their futures can be with hard work and perseverance. No dream is too big, I always tell them. I don’t want them to be afraid to reach for the highest in life.”
Page is a well-known celebrity makeup artist. She has done work for events such as Tribeca Film Festival, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and Bridal Fashion Week. Currently, she is the key makeup artist for “BK Live!” “BK Live!” is a talk show that discusses daily lifestyle and culture that airs on Brooklyn Independent Media.
Page hopes that her event will give young girls the confidence to have self-love and self-respect.
“Beauty starts within, and my goal is to empower girls and women through the art of makeup to enhance their beauty coupled with personal style and self-confidence,” said Page. Despite what critics say about makeup, she believes that it is an enhancement of one’s inner beauty. “Once you wear makeup that works best for you, and you don’t try to be someone you are not, it can be the best accessory to have.”
Asked what do her two girls think about her event, Page told the AmNews, “My daughters are excited about the event. My older daughter, who is 8-years-old, is especially excited because she is taking part.”
