Born in California and raised in Hawaii, Maile Bello was fascinated by art and fashion at a young age. Her fascination came from her mom who is an artist and designer. Growing up, her childhood books were fashion magazines. Maile's mom always had the newest issues of Vogue, Bazaar, and W lying around the house. She remembers finding so much joy looking through those magazines while imagining that she was at the runway shows and photo shoots. These memories played a tremendous role in shaping her love for makeup, art, and fashion today.

Maile's career started after graduating from Esthetics school. She spent some time as an esthetician and started doing makeup for weddings. After years of being in the skincare industry she felt it was time to focus on her true passion, makeup. With her background and experience she has a strong understanding of facial bone structure, how to treat different skin types, and eyebrow symmetry. This made her transition to a full time makeup artist very easy. 

Maile caught the eye of legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath during Pat's 2014/2015 "Backstage with Pat McGrath" competition. She was one of the three artist selected to assist on Pat McGrath's team during 2015 NYFW and MBFW. 

Maile won two awards for her makeup designs and has worked with companies such as Samsung USA & Asia, Zappos, Sports Illustrated, and The Professional Bull Riders Association. She has also worked with Bethenny Frankel, Miranda Kerr, and Emina Cunmulaj just to name a few.
