Meet the Makeup Artists

Many of you have yet to meet my two new amazing makeup artists. Talented artists who freelance for some of the biggest names in the industry, I only have each of them one Saturday a month at Bellacara. I feel lucky to have them at all, considering their talent! The evening of October 25th, Elizabeth Todd and I will be hosting a Sip & Shop at The Shoe Hive to say thank you to our customers and friends. We want to kick off the fall season with thank you discounts and gift bags and we thought it would be fun to have a brow and lip bar at the event. My two new artists will be there to show you the latest in brow technique and innovative lip products. I can’t wait for you to meet them. Until then, I thought I would give you a little introduction and so you could see why you should stop by to meet them.


Celthia Corsino

Celthia has 20 years of experience as a professional makeup artist, specializing in runway, television, studio photography, weddings, and web advertising. She found her passion for art at an early age and loved to draw and paint. Makeup was a natural progression for her artistry.

Since then, she has worked for top makeup lines such as MAC, Trish McEvoy, Kevyn Aucoin, Tom Ford, and Charlotte Tilbury. She worked at Neiman Marcus for more than a decade and was selected to spearhead the launch of exclusive lines like Shu Uemura and Le Métier de Beauté as a result of her excellent customer service and artistry skills.

Sharon Macorol

Born in the Philippines, her family moved to America when she was fourteen years old. Photography was her first love.

Her interest shifted to makeup artistry when she started working for various cosmetics companies such as Shiseido, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, and Chantecaille. Makeup artistry became her passion as years of experience with the media increased. Enjoying the art and believing the possibilities are endless, her main goal is to make people look and feel more beautiful than they are already.

Her credentials are as endless as her talent. A freelancer for numerous brands, her time is spent in city after city. She loves when she can come home and work locally.


Sign up HERE to join us for a fun evening, chat with friends, take time for yourself, and maybe pick up a trick or two from these two very talented ladies.


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, for more than 17 years Bellacara has been Northern Virginia's preeminent boutique for high end cosmetic, skincare and haircare products. At Bellacara you will find premiere beauty products that have been carefully edited by the store’s owner, Angela Sitilides, who personally tests all the products sold in store. The boutique carries only the best product lines – Kiehl’s, Jouer, Dr. Dennis Gross, Christophe Robin, Moroccan Oil, Bumble & Bumble, Fresh, Molton Brown, Skinceuticals, Smashbox, Stila, Mario Badescu, Clarins, Dermalogica, Kevyn Aucoin, Kai, Child, St. Tropez, Smith and Cult, and many more.
