How it all began

I have had an obsession with makeup for a long time. It all started when I was a child watching my mother put on her favorite red lipstick every time she was about to go somewhere special. That obsession led me to want to not only apply makeup to myself, but to put it on everyone I knew. For me it was the perfect way to explore.

Makeup Is My Therapy

The more I applied makeup on my friends and actually anyone who would allow me to “paint their face” the more I loved the idea of being a makeup artist. With the face as my canvas and makeup as my paints, I was on a quest to learn all I could about working as a makeup artist. By this time I was only 15, but I learned by practicing on others and volunteering to do makeup at every available opportunity.

Finally, I graduated from high school and planned to go to college. So determine to work in makeup, I put together a portfolio (something I had researched) with a friend of mine who took photos of my work. I applied at a department store and was hired! It was the start of my makeup career and the beginning of a lifetime of doing what I love.

Going to school full time and working lead to lots of late nights studying for classes and practicing my makeup and product knowledge skills. To help me to stay focused and alert, I decided to try coffee. At first, I hated it, but I liked that it gave me energy, at least I was alert enough to get things done. Later I learned to adjust the taste of coffee by adding cream and it became a beverage I wake up for every day.

Blending Is My Cardio

Now, to tie in the coffee mugs. I take my coffee with me wherever I go. I owned lots of mugs prior to creating this website. One day I was looking for coffee mugs with “makeup artist” inspired sayings and fell in love with the options from my research. I thought that other makeup artists would enjoy having an up that inspired their craft, and this website filled with many options, Makeup Artist Mugs was born.
