Makeup and Hair Artist, New York, NY
My name is Michael Serapiglia – I am a professional Makeup Artist and -
I LOVE MAKEUP!
I attended Wayne State University where I studied Theater Arts. Since Wayne State was a “production school” we were encouraged to learn every aspect of our craft. And that is where my love for Makeup began to flower.
From there I went to Chicago as a dancer/singer and ultimately on to New York City where I spent 10 years as a Broadway Performer. During that time I also started my own clothing line with a few amazing friends and was personal stylist to many Broadway performers....Taylor Dane, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascale, Jai Rodriguez and Christine W. After my last show closed - Elton John's AIDA-I moved to Florida and enrolled in makeup school.
