Houston based MakeUp Artist Moni Pradier fuses her love of art, fashion, and cosmetics to generate beautiful masterpieces. Moni skillfully creates natural everyday looks to unique concept creations for production tapings, photo shoots, weddings and everything in between, catering to each of her clients’ individual needs. From high profile clientele to the everyday woman, Moni believes that each client presents a new canvas for her to produce an unparalleled masterpiece.
Moni developed Blending Beauty to relieve women of unsightly, contour lines after having their makeup applied. Her technique removes the nuisance of such lines that give away “lines of demarcation” or the areas where make up starts and stops on a woman's face. When applying makeup, Moni P’s ultimate goal is to seamlessly blend multiple shades and colors to look natural.
Moni continuously strives to perfect her techniques. She has traveled and trained under several greats in the beauty industry (i.e. Damone Roberts, Scott Barnes and Ve Neill to name a few) and draws not only from self-taught methods and formal training but studies other legends such as Pat McGrath and Bobbi Brown. Moni works tirelessly at constantly growing and improving her skill set, and staying cognizant of the latest trends.
The Clean Beauty Makeup trends of Moni P are displayed through her work with TV personalities such as Tami Roman of VH1’s Basketball Wives, local KTRK news anchor Melanie Lawson and even male grooming for Bill Paxton (as seen in the History Channel hit Texas Rising). With a slew of work published on multiple clients and models in various publications and credits as Key Makeup Artist for Artistix during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week S/S 2014 and productions by clients like BP oil company, Moni has an extensive background in a variety of makeup applications and techniques.
The talent and work ethic displayed by Moni P and her Blending Beauty team have made them favorites among all the clients they work with.
