Marion Chameleon is Here to Remind Us That Makeup is Fun

Makeup is such a basic part of our every day that it’s easy to forget how transformative it can be. We usually have tried and true routines with a focus on speed and presentability. But makeup comes in all shades and textures, and with the right mindset, it can add a pop of color even to the drabbest of days. Just Ask Marion Chameleon.

Marion Moretti, also known as Marion Chameleon on social media, is a professional makeup artist and YouTube star. She started out like any other girl, trying out different looks for herself and playing around with colors and shapes. Eventually, she decided to get into the field professionally and signed up for the Make Up For Ever Academy in Nice, France.

Most makeup artists go on to create bridal looks, work for TV, or even become the in-house makeup artist for celebrities. But Marion wanted to try something else. Instead of creating regular, everyday looks, she decided to try and push the boundaries of makeup. She started her own YouTube channel where she tries unusual, innovative makeup looks on herself, and transforming herself into everything from fairies to demons – like a real chameleon!

Today she’s a huge start with almost half a million subscribers. She’s still creating new crazy makeup looks, and reminding her audience that makeup doesn’t have to be all grown-up and serious – it can be fun, too.
