I am Karisa Sava and I have been a professional make-up artist since 2011 with experience in all aspects of the industry. I am so passionate about my career and it motivates and inspires me every single day to help make women feel proud about their appearance either through make-up or simply by supplying them with the perfect lipstick.  As a mother of three, I am blessed to have a career that I truly enjoy and can show my children that they can follow their dreams and be successful in a career that they love.  

My training and education provides dependable and detail-oriented, professional work.

SMACKbyKarisa is sold at multiple boutiques around the Mahoning Valley.
