Ever since I can remember, I have been interested in the beauty industry. But growing up in a household where I wasn’t allowed to own clear lip-gloss until the age of 16 wasn’t exactly an ideal start.
I fell head-over-heels in love with make-up during my college years. The colors and brushes and blending, oh my! I knew I was a makeup junkie and there was no way to control it. Soon after finishing college I knew I wanted to pursue make-up, and that’s what I did.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing leading artists such as Christian McCulloch, Hung Vanngo, Makky and Tom Pecheux. And I have been a part of shows for Cynthia Steffe, Peter Som, Karen Walker and RAD by Rad Hourani, as well as department head for MTV’s Video Music Awards.
In 2013 I launched Breakups To Makeup to spread the message that makeup is more than just a product, but also a form of art. Now I’m using my expertise as a pro artist and CEO to mentor fellow makeup artists and entrepreneurs and help them achieve their goals.
“From the moment I met Angelique, I knew she was a special gem. Her energy is infectious, authentic, and genuine. She has always been quick to support me, give me advice — even when we hadn’t spoken for years. Angelique has been a huge inspiration to me as I’ve watched her brand grow. I often seek her advice for business and it’s because of her, I’ve found good internet role models and podcasts. Angelique is someone you can depend on for positive vibes and encouragement to go after your dreams. She leads by example, shares the good + the bad; all with a huge smile.”

“I signed up for Angelique’s My Makeup Mastermind to get a clear handle on how to bring my many different ideas to fruition. I didn’t know where to begin to put my big ideas into place and I felt like I had no power or control to make any of it happen. Having Angelique’s support, and implementing her suggested steps helped me get focused and achieve my goals. The incredible community and accountability were powerful tools to rely upon and I was able to organize my creativity into a finished product. I now have launched the podcast that has been occupying space in my mind for years, and can enjoy completing another creative endeavor! Thank you Angelique!”
