Greetings. My name is Tara DiPetrillo. I'm a makeup artist, originally from New York City and recently relocated to Los Angeles. I've had a wonderful run as a Makeup Artitst in the TV/Film industry in North Carolina, Virginia and Alabama with the opportunities to work on great projects: the recent box office hit that reached #1 movie in America – “War Room”; to, the hit television shows: “Homeland”, “The Bachelorette”, and a new film coming out this year called, “Coming Through the Rye”, starring Oscar Awarding winning actor, Chris Cooper (playing J.D. Salinger), Alex Wolff ("The Naked Brothers Band") and Stefania Owen ("The Carrie Diaries"), as well as, another film entitled “Jesse and Naomi”, starring Marilu Henner("Taxi"), Corbin Bernsen ("Psych"), Chelsey Crisp ("Fresh Off the Boat"), Joe Williamson (Grey's Anatomy") & Philip Boyd ("The Have and the Have Nots).
I have experience as a Makeup Department Head doing special FX makeup and am comfortable in all makeup related positions. I work on commercials, videos and print work as well. For those gigs I am able to do makeup combos with hair and wardrobe styling.
I started doing makeup as a teenager and broke into the film industry in 2011. I'm very humbled to say that I love what I do and it feels amazing to live my passions. I feel I bring a very positive vibe to set and look forward to creating something magical with you!

Once a powerful machine that allowed Americans, as they were called, to flourish and prosper. But through the greed and egos of corrupt-bought and paid for "politicians", the government allowed businesses to have their goods and services produced in other countries. Thus the decline of American Manufacturing. The country fell into decline and imploded on itself. Millions were left unemployed, homeless and starved. No health insurance made sure that families from all parts of the country eventually moved to other countries or just gave up, got sick and all died off. America became a police state, the likes of which the world has never seen. How could this happen? Ask the people in Washington, DC that dare call themselves leaders. Written by Tim Vogel
