We recently got our hair and makeup done for our holiday lookbook photo shoot (see the behind the scenes shots on instagram!). The lovely ladies behind Morgan Marie Beauty did our makeup looks and we were so inspired by their talent and incredible story, we had to get to know them a bit better. Here is what we found out about these fabulous founders –
T+J: Morgan Marie started in 2012 – what has lead to the success of your brand and where do you see yourself headed?
MMB: We think our key to success is that we are genuinely very passionate about our clients and what we do! We truly feel so lucky to have the opportunity to inspire confidence in women through cosmetics. In the next few years, we have plans to fully expand our cosmetic line and eventually open our first location.
*We loved our makeup application from Morgan and Marie before our big fall/holiday photoshoot
T+J: What were you doing before you started Morgan Marie Beauty? What made you decide to start it?
MMB: Marie and I were actually working together at a Nordstrom. She was the business manager for Chanel and I was the business manager for NARS. Morgan Marie Beauty actually happened very organically! Neither one of us ever thought that we would start a cosmetics company but one thing lead to another and we knew it was the best choice for us and our clients!
T+J: What advice would you give to someone just starting their business or what is the best advice you received?
MMB: If you can dream it, you can do it! With a lot of hard work and determination, anything can happen!
T+J: What’s your best beauty tip for women who are short on time in the mornings?
MMB: The best way to quickly enhance your features is to perfect your skin, throw on a touch of mascara and a lipstick or gloss! We love this pretty hot pink lipstick called Madonna shown below.
T+J: How do people book your time for makeup application? And where can we purchase your cosmetics?
MMB: People can book appointments on our website and all our products are sold online at MorganMarieBeauty.com.
We loved working with Morgan and Marie, they were talented and super kind and the makeup application lasted all day without reapplication. One of our favorites was the lipstick as the bright, bold color was smooth, silky and had staying power. Be sure to check out their site here.
