Monique Zephir is a Celebrity Makeup Artist and Esthetician based in the New York Metro Area. She was born in New Jersey but also grew up in Paris, France. She was blessed with a mother who had an affinity for fine art and had a love for travel. Spending her summers in Paris and on the French Rivera, in her mother’s home town of Nice, she developed a cultivated eye and a strong sense of diversity. Her father, who was a French Literature Professor and the author of 11 books, is of Haitian decent. This rich mix of culture and ethnic background has enhanced Monique’s eye for understanding each person’s unique features and skin tone.
Monique had her start in the world of cosmetics for a cosmetics line named Prescriptives. There she become the Custom Blend Specialist and trained beauty analysts across the Tri-State Area on how to custom blend foundation, concealer and powder. She has since then started her own cosmetics line, Zephir Beaute which is available online @mycosmeticgenie.com. Monique and her Team Zephir Beaute also travel by appointment. Besides makeup, Zephir Beaute offers facials and skincare for men and women, as well as airbrush tanning.
Monique has also attended Fordham University with the pursuit of a Master’s in Social Work. Her abilities as a psychotherapist are apparent in her strong connection with her clients. From celebrities to the everyday woman, Monique enjoys her work and relationships with her steady clientele. When it comes to makeup, Monique feels that "beauty is not something that you put on, but rather something that must be brought out."
