Carol Lyan


Hello! My name is Carol and I’m from the fashion capitol of the pacific, Honolulu, Hawaii! I am a young contemporary Makeup Artist with a modern style and strong fundamentals. I’ve been teaching myself makeup for eight years and I’ve been working professionally for 4 years. I enjoy the art of creation and transformation through the use of makeup.
*I have never been to makeup school, I am 100% self taught!

At the beginning of my journey I started off doing photo shoots with photographers for portfolio foundation. Along the way, I met one of Hawaii’s few top makeup artists, Toni P. Farley, who booked me to work on a spring issue of Look Hawaii Magazine. From then on, I took my work to runways, fashion shoots, and weddings concentrating on building my portfolio and working with the best in the industry.

I currently provide hair and makeup services for Photography, Film, Fashion, Runway, Weddings and Special Events.

“Carol Lyan Batinga is an AMAZING makeup artist! It has been quite of few years since I have done any modeling or had professional make up done, so I was a bit nervous, but Carol made me feel so comfortable the entire time. Her makeup application was phenomenal. She totally transformed my look into something out of this world. Throughout the shoot she made sure that my hair and makeup were flawless, so I did not have to worry anything. Carol Lyan Batinga is a true professional, and I would LOVE to work with her again!”

“Carol is a fabulous MUA, from the first time I worked with her, I knew she was special. Her blending and her attention to detail is remarkable. Although Carol has no formal training, her MU artistry exceeds some professionally trained MUA’s.
I consider Carol one of the TOP MUA’s in Honolulu. I’ve grown to trust her judgment, her talent and skill. I consider Carol my primary MUA. I love and enjoy having her on my team.”

“It was a pleasure & such a blessing to have Carol as my makeup artist on my photo shoot. She’s not only a pro, but also a good friend who is honest in giving some advice in makeup preference & also make up tips. Carol knows how to do a stunning makeup for a great glam modeling photo shoot. She has very good attention to details, calm, knows how to handle hectic situations. She is very kind because she stayed and helped with the duration of the shoot.
I love the makeup she did for my eyes. The smokey eyes, it’s glam, sexy, & yet so soft & sweet. She also did my hair which was very sexy and glam. The look she gave me really suited my personality; she nailed it!
Everyone in my family & my friends complimented the makeup & hair. They asked who did it & they said they would refer Carol as well to their families & friends. Its hard to find people that is really fun & nice to work with. I am grateful I was able to find a fun person & easy to work with! Definitely highly recommended!
Carol is dedicated and definitely talented! It was a pleasure working with Carol!”
