Sometime last year I met Ariel on makeupgeek and we chatted a bit about makeup. We became facebook friends, occasionally interacting. Though we weren’t especially close, it was clear that Ariel was an exceptional girl with incredible talent for makeup artistry. Her beautiful work was eyecatching and inspiring (at least for me) For that, I felt it would be appropriate to post in the forum, where she shared her gift, a little remembrance and goodbye.
Hardly knew you, Ariel, but knew you were incredible. Rest in peace, beautiful.February 1, 2012 at 3:36 pm #149352
Do you have a link or something that notes her passing?
EDIT: Never mind; some Googling gave me what I wanted/needed. Apparently, she was killed in a car accident.
RIP, Ariel.February 1, 2012 at 4:11 pm #149365
What?? Oh my gosh! This makes me so sad! I didn’t know Ariel personally but we did have a few conversations through Makeup Geek. She was one talented lady! She had actually started a blog and though she only did two posts, one which she deleted, you can see through her first post what a beautiful person she was inside and out!
“As they say, the hardest part is getting started. Isn’t that the truth! Why don’t we crack this off with a little bio:
My name is Ariel Marie, I’m currently a freelance artist personally and also through MAC. I graduated from Cinema Makeup School in 2010, obtaining my Master of Makeup and Digital FX certificate. Based out of Central Cali, I travel around the area doing weddings, proms, makeovers, and monsters. Yes, I said monsters.
Now, I see makeup in a different light than most people. To me it’s not about the brand names or “makeup is for girly girls”. I view it as this: every face is like a finger print, each one is different from the next. Makeup is an art, and the concept is to work from the natural beauty of the face. Everyone’s face is bloody beautiful, I don’t care what you say. Embrace what you have because it’s who you are, nobody has your exact face. When you learn to not be so harsh on “imperfections” (by the way, I hate that word) and learn to love your natural beauty, applying makeup will be not a necessity. Makeup, again, is an art, and should be a fun option to use your beautiful face as a canvas to create different looks, whether it’s just evening out skintone or doing a dark, sultry eyeshadow.
There you have it! It’s a mini rant, but I just want to give an insight to my mind. I hope by creating this blog, I will teach what I know, and learn more! You can never stop learning, that’s for sure! I’ve been a bit of a troll for the past, oh I don’t know…two years? Haha! Going through youtubes, blogspots, facebooks, but never creating my own. Well, here I am, guys! I hope to give many makeup tutorials, reviews on products, and maybe a little jibber jabber. Now…time to party and do some makeup!”February 1, 2012 at 5:59 pm #149384
Yeah, it was a car wreck. A collision with a tanker truck in thick fog.
It’s so sad. I can’t seem to stop thinking about it and we hardly ever talked. She was just so incredibly talented and her makeup career was just starting to take off (she posted that she would be travelling in her work with MAC).February 2, 2012 at 1:28 am #149438
Oh! That is so tragic Her poor family. She was just gorgeous & talented too.February 2, 2012 at 2:14 am #149443
So sad! Just another reminder how short life can be….may she rest in peace!February 7, 2012 at 9:01 pm #150457
Wow! She was such a talented girl! I am so sorry to hear of such an awful tragedy! RIPFebruary 7, 2012 at 9:24 pm #150459
Oh my gosh… How sad.. I rememeber her… She rly was such a talented girl.. And so super sweet… I didn’t know her well, but we had a few exchanges on here… And I always admired her work… So young too, just at the beginning of what we all knew was going to be an amazing career… Def agree with daantje, a reminder of how short life can be…… RIP Ariel….February 13, 2012 at 9:19 am #151815
my goodness! So sad I never talked with Ariel but I saw her work and she was so talented and seemed like such a lovely girl.February 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm #151886
I did not know Ariel, as I’m new here. Hearing of such a loss, though, is equally heart-breaking. May she rest in peace, and my condolences to her family. Just through reading the first post of her “bio” she sounds like she was a very optimistic, talented, wise, and light-spirited lady.
Such a rude awakening to the harsh realities of our world..June 5, 2012 at 7:01 pm #175026
This is so beautiful… I knew her personally. We went to High School together. I miss her terribly. Her headstone arrived and everyone is getting together to lay flowers on her grave and share our grief. Thank you for this lovely tribute! It’s wonderful to know and see how many people she touched.June 6, 2012 at 9:06 pm #175308

I just learned the news of this about 30 minutes ago. I was chatting with a friend about a talented girl named Ariel, and my thoughts came to Ariel G. I searched for her on YT and found her tribute video.
I was shocked to hear about her passing…like many others here, we chatted on this board and I admired her work. Ariel was such a talented young lady.
My heart goes out to her friends and family…
R.I.P. Ariel.June 9, 2012 at 1:27 am #175683
I’d like to thank you again for this tribute. Today there was a get together at her grave. Her headstone arrived and we came together to lay flowers and remember times passed with Ariel. I told her mother about this and she was touched. Thank you all for this. It is absolutely amazing to have proof that Ariel touched, not only those she met in person, but also those she connected with via internet.July 27, 2012 at 3:57 pm #183578
I remember this pretty face
May you color the skies with angels now <3
