Marcia is a special effects make-up artist, based in Western Australia, with over eight years’ experience in the industry. She began in the beauty therapy industry through casual employment while still at school, before finding her passion for make-up and furthering her studies at the WA Academy in 2011.
After working for numerous high-end makeup brands, including Napoleon Perdis and Kryolan, Marcia moved to Los Angeles California in 2013, where she completed her Master Makeup Diploma at the prestigious and world-renowned Cinema Makeup School. While studying her third makeup diploma, she gained valuable experience through involvement in a range of projects – including short films, Miss USA pageants and MTV events.
She is continuously taking courses and workshops to upgrade her skill set which includes beauty make-ups, editorials, all aspects of special effects, character makeups, prosthetics, theatre and film and television.
"Marcia is truly an artist of ability and work ethic. She has a clear vision and she knows how to breathe life into that vision by applying her skills and abilities. She not only takes direction very well but she also knows how to inspire others."

My name is Michael Spatola and I have over 35 years of experience in the make-up industry. I have worked on a number of productions, including Terminator 2, Return of the Living Dead, Edward Scissorhands and Iron Man III, and I am a two-time EMMY Award nominee. The below is a letter of reference to evaluate the skills and abilities of Marcia Freitag as a professional make-up artist.
Marcia is truly an artist of ability and work ethic. She has a clear vision and she knows how to breathe life into that vision by applying her skills and abilities. She not only takes direction very well but she also knows how to inspire others.
In my expert opinion, any individual can train themselves to apply makeup but not everyone can become an artist. An artist is someone that stands out in the industry as having a creative vision; it is someone who sets trends, takes risks, and inspires others through their ability, commitment and work ethic. Marcia is surely one of these rare artists.
