Marsha Page, aka: The Melanin Therapist, is a New York based Emmy nominated professional makeup artist and beauty expert who specializes in the unique nuances, shades, and undertones of melanated skin.

She has also participated in industry events such as the Tribeca Film Festival, New York Fashion Week, and Bridal Fashion Week, and is a member of I.A.T.S.E. Local 798 Hairstylists & Makeup Artists.
She is now 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.
