The calendar may officially say it's 2023, but we can't help but look back with gratitude for all of your support in 2022!

From the biggest launch we've ever had (the Theresa is Lethal Collection with Lethal Cosmetics and Theresa is Dead) to providing a few PRO Tips on why some of the viral products and trends you saw actually work (like Ben Nye Pretty Pink Powder, how to use the Aqua Chromes from the Danessa Myricks Lightwork Volume 4 Transcendence Palette, and Hailey Bieber's lip lining hack), our team has been curating the best in beauty and crafting blogs and tutorials to help you not only Shop Like a PRO but to experience the best in beauty like a PRO!

As fun and exciting as those memories are for us, our favorite memories and projects have YOU, our Camera Ready Community, at the center of it all! From providing you with a better shopping experience to celebrating what being Camera Ready means to you, making the best in beauty more accessible is our favorite part of 2022!

Our top 3 highlights of 2022 are:

  1. Launching our updated website in May
  2. Offering you more hair care options
  3. Our I Am Camera Ready Campaign

2022 Highlight #1: We updated our website in May 2022 to make exploring easier

The last few years have changed how people shop for their beauty products, and it highlighted the fact that our website was in major need of an upgrade to give you the best experience possible! We worked hard to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for from the comfort of your couch because our community deserves an online shopping experience that resembles shopping in-store with our beauty experts and makeup artists. Each guest that comes through our doors at our Dallas, TX, showroom gets personalized recommendations based on what they're shopping for, and this 2022 highlight brought you one step closer to that experience!

We added new 'filters' like formula, coverage, and finish on our website so you could zero in on the product you want - like searching for a cream foundation with full coverage and a natural finish.

We also added the ability to shop by concern, so if you are looking for skincare that can help with texture, cover or treat dark spots, or provide extra moisture, you'll find products specific to your own beauty needs with a simple click! Are you a makeup artist (or want to Shop Like a PRO)? We have a collection of kit essentials curated for you! Finally, we launched our first quiz to help you find the hair care that's right for your individual needs!

2022 Highlight #2: We added more hair care to our assortment than ever

We take the feedback and requests from our beauty community seriously, and we sent a survey to our most loyal customers in 2021 to learn what our customers wanted us to offer more of. The answer: hair care! We proudly added several of the most requested brands including OLAPLEX, R+Co, R+Co Bleu, Fekkai, IGK, and Insert Name Here so that we could be your favorite destination for all of your beauty needs.

2022 Highlight #3: Celebrating what beauty means to YOU with our I Am Camera Ready Campaign

The number of new beauty trends and products in 2022 was dizzying, and it left a lot of makeup lovers feeling overwhelmed.

We ran our I Am Camera Ready Campaign in the fall of 2022 to remind folks that there's no true definition of what beauty should look like and that it's okay if you don't feel the need to wear makeup all the time or feel compelled to try the latest trends. To us, the world of beauty and beauty products should be inclusive and a means of personal expression.  

We partnered with some of the biggest names in the beauty industry like @Paintedbyspencer, Danessa Myricks, Theresa is Dead, and more to share this message through Instagram Lives, blogs, tutorials, and more. If you missed out on all the fun, don't worry! You can always view our past I Am Camera Ready blogs to learn more and to relive the fun!

Those are our favorite moments of 2022, but we want to know, what were your favorite Camera Ready moments? Connect with us on social media (find us on TikTok, Instagram, or YouTube) to share yours, or send us an email!

About Camera Ready Cosmetics

Camera Ready Cosmetics was founded in 2003 by Makeup Artist Mary Erickson. She dreamed of having a pro makeup showroom where artists could play with professional products without the typical makeup store attitude.

Today, our team of beauty industry veterans work together to curate the best quality products on the market. We partner with brands who respect the industry and formulate products for true working artists. You won’t find CRC in high-end malls, and we don't wear matching brush belts.

If you want to play with products for a few hours and buy nothing, that's okay ... come in and play! Our store is your playground.
