Janine “J 9” Carthone,   Master MUA

As far as I can remember, make up, and the artistry of cosmetics was a part of my childhood.

Even as a young child I could recall the fascination with the many pigments and hues resting upon my mother’s vanity. I knew then, what I’ve come to believe that I’ve always known; this form of artistry was in fact my very first love.  So, despite the apprehensions expressed by my family: I perused and mastered my devotion to make-up, and enrolled into the David Pressley school of Cosmetology in Royal Oak, MI; and obtained my instructors license in Esthetics. From then, I perfected my skill; both instructing and becoming a M.A.C. certified MUA.  

Today, I’m the successful owner and CEO of 9 Shades by J my work having been certified and published within Munaluchi Bridal magazine, I’ve been contracted for television series,” Paternity Court with Judge Lauren Lakes”, “Selling in the Atl” featured on WETV , a dozens of network commercials.

I pride myself in perfecting and enhancing the overall scope of my canvases for their cinematography, and photography appearances, knowing that their makeup not only looks good for that moment but for a lifetime, frozen in still. 

When I am not enhancing the overall image and inner beauty of my clients, I spend my leisure time with my two children; my daughter Nadia 21 & my son Myles 15.
