Her makeup artistry goes well beyond the surface to enhance the natural beauty of anyone sitting in her chair.

Now, she's coming out from behind the camera to empower and educate people of all colors by serving them a unique experience – one that allows them to understand the makeup and beauty artistry of gorgeous and glowing melanated skin. 

As Marsha herself says… “The standard of beauty not only includes us, it begins with us...” 

Here's what Marsha Page, aka The Melanin Therapist had to share about getting that "no makeup, make-up look".


What does a woman of color need to get a glowing, “no makeup, makeup” look?

Marsha Page, aka The Melanin Therapist:  

In order to achieve a glowing “no makeup” look, I recommend starting with a gentle exfoliator to remove any dry or flaky skin, a great daytime moisturizer (with SPF), and a lightweight, medium coverage, liquid foundation. I would also opt for a cream-based highlighter or bronzer to complete the look.


Have you tried buttah? It’s skincare created by an African American man? 


I am familiar with the line “Buttah” but have not used it on any of my clients yet.


What’s the truth about sunscreen?

TMT: The truth about sunscreen is no matter what skin type or tone you have, sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine. Everyone needs it and can benefit from it. I recommend always using SPF 30 or higher. It’s also great to find a foundation or BB Cream with SPF in its formulation.
