Tanya began her career in makeup while studying fashion at acclaimed art institute Parsons School of Design in New York City. Moved by the runway looks by makeup masters Francois Nars and Stephane Marais, Tanya saved tear sheets of the makeup instead of the clothing, a clear sign that her appreciation for fashion lie entirely on beauty. Casually, a fellow student suggested working over the summer "behind the counter" at Macy's Herald Square selling makeup. Having never applied makeup on anyone, she was assured makeup was like painting, but on a face instead of on paper. Little did she know that once the first client sat in Tanya's chair, Tanya was hooked. This natural shift from design to beauty utilized Tanya's innate sense of color while remaining deeply inspired by fashion and editorials.
After dedicating years in the luxury cosmetic industry, Tanya honed her makeup skills with a diverse clientele as a National Makeup Artist for NARS Cosmetics. Adding her soft makeup style to weddings and special events, Tanya understood traditionally dramatic looks weren't always wanted, and more importantly, not always needed. Before long, Tanya was in demand for high profile weddings and began carving her place in bridal beauty along the west coast and beyond.
In 2013, Tanya Bures formed Page Beauty, a curated company of artists who shared a similar philosophy in beauty - modern, elevated and seemingly effortless. Aptly named after the beauty pages in a magazine, Page Beauty finds inspiration in fashion and editorials and remains steeped in the world of beauty.
Tanya continues to work on editorials, advertising campaigns, look books and a limited number of weddings.
"After 20+ years of doing makeup, there's nothing like hearing how happy my client feels when she looks in the mirror and sees herself first, not the makeup."
