New York City-based celebrity makeup artist Lauren Rose has announced a return to the art form, which has drawn comparisons to the craft in the 1960s and 1970s.
Rose has been a makeup artist since 2002, working with such high-profile names as Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Jennifer Garner, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Gwen Stefani.
Her latest venture is her own line of makeup products.
“I feel like I’ve always been passionate about makeup,” Rose told The Associated Press on Friday, after she was introduced at an event hosted by the Art of Change Foundation, which advocates for social change.
“It’s really cool to be able to bring it back.”
Rose has worked on a number of high-quality lip products since launching her own brand in 2016, including one that combines lipsticks with powder.
Her first line, which was named The Art of Beauty by Rose, was a hit with customers.
The line was launched in late 2016 with four products: an eye cream, lipstick, blush, and powder.
A few months later, she launched a line of lipsticks called Rose and Rose.
“We’re so happy with how it’s received and the reaction it’s had,” Rose said of her new line.
“As a makeup pro, I really love what I do, and I’m excited to be a part of something that brings that into the spotlight.”
Rose, who is based in Los Angeles, was inspired to make her own lipsticks after hearing about the need for people to have a place to get makeup in a community.
“There was a time in the ’80s and ’90s when you couldn’t go to a makeup store, and you couldn.
So there was a real need for makeup, and that’s what this brand was all about,” she said.
“My mom taught me that we’re all here to make money, and this is where we all make money.”
Rose started the brand as a way to keep up with the trends of the day.
“When I started out, it was really the beauty of a lipstick, which is the lipstick that people would use when they were doing their makeup, but now people are using it all the time,” she explained.
“They don’t have to go to the makeup counter anymore.
They can do it at home.”
Her line of products is currently sold at Sephora and Sephova, which also launched its own line in 2015.
It launched the Rose and Roses collection, which includes three lipsticks, three lip products, and a highlighter.
The Rose and roses collection includes products that range from $8 to $24, and Rose’s first line was priced at $17.
“People really wanted to use these products, so I just wanted to bring those to the masses,” Rose explained.
She’s currently working on a line for the holidays, which she hopes to debut in late 2018.
The foundation, founded by former presidential candidate Evan McMullin and co-founder Sarah Scholl, has raised more than $1.5 million in funding.
“This foundation is dedicated to creating a safe, healthy, and affordable environment for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people to thrive,” Scholl said in a statement.
“By collaborating with local artists, we hope to create a safe space for LGBTQ people and non-LGBTQ people to connect, learn, and collaborate.”
