Monsieur Walzer, International Celebrity-Makeup Artist and The MW Face Founder, Dies at 55

HOUSTON, TX – International celebrity-makeup artist and the MW Face Founder, Monsieur Walzer has died. Childhood friend Dwayne Raymond said, “He died peacefully surrounded by his village.” He was 55.

A native Houstonian with a global vision, Walzer founded The MW Face, in Southwest Houston.

For over 30 years, he and his team catered to the beauty needs of women of color, specializing in makeup and hair.

His passion for bridal makeup artistry positioned him as one of the most sought-after make-up artists for weddings in the United States.

An extensive background in the beauty industry, who stayed current on all the latest trends, Walzer’s mission was to help his clients achieve their beauty desires while delivering impeccable customer service.

His customer service, talent, and southern hospitality spanned across the globe reaching celebrities as Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas, actresses Sheryl Lee Ralph; Tichina Arnold; Regina King; Gloria Reuben, and Kate Walsh; Tom Arnold; Entertainment Tonight’s, Kevin Frazier; Saturday Night Live’s, Molly Shannon; gospel music trio Trin-i-tee 5:7, and gospel soloist Kathy Taylor, award-winning Gospel Saxophonist Angélla Christie; Pastor Paula White, and more.

“Monsieur was a consummate professional and his work was impeccable,” says Kristen Broussard, editor-in-chief of Bliss the Magazine, a bridal publication for women of color. “His unique style of make-up artistry gave the models in my magazine an air of sophistication, which matched the tone of the editorial exactly.”

For the past 15 years, Walzer was the official MUA for the Helpppp Agency Group (HAG) and RCM Media Productions during NBA All-Star Weekend at All-Star Gospel Celebration, Oscar week at Gospel Goes to Hollywood Awards, and Grammy® week at theMic (music’s inspiration celebration).

“Oprah had Andre, and I had Monsieur,” exclaimed Tomeka B. Holyfield, Founder of HAG and Executive Producer of RCM Media Productions.

He trained some of the best artists in the business and represented some of the most revered and respected companies in the cosmetics industry, including Estee Lauder, Fashion Fair, Iman, Flori Roberts, and Christian Dior.

Rhonda Lynn Jenkins, Founder of Sparkles of Life, Inc., where Walzer was the founding board member and advisor, said, “His attention to detail was unbelievable and the level of personal service was a gift.”

Besides serving as a makeup artist, he was an account executive for L’Oreal USA in the Dermablend Division.
