Midori Tajiri-Byrd

Professional Makeup Artist

Makeup artistry involves much more than how a person looks. It is based in how a person feels. Through enhancement and transformation of our appearance we can improve the way we see ourselves as well as how we feel overall.


With my training in fine art and fashion I create customized looks for each individual and project, taking into account the appearance both on film and in person, as well as the clients personal experience. I specialize in makeup for photography, fashion and art and enjoy creating unique, artistic looks for editorial photoshoots in print and online.


I provide makeup services for photography, special events, weddings and lessons for individuals and groups and am available in salon or on location. Bookings contact (504)891-4440. Follow me on Instagram at @midori_stories and see the latest work and full portfolio at .
