About the Founder

Camera Ready Cosmetics was founded in 2003 by Makeup Artist Mary Erickson, with one vision in mind:

"It’s been my dream to have a pro makeup showroom, a place for artists to play with professional products without the typical makeup store attitude. I can't stand going into a store where the owners and employees think they're doing the customer a favor by being there."

"We've narrowed our products down to the best of the best. We have chosen the brands that respect and formulate their products for artists. You won’t find us in high end malls and we don't wear matching brush belts. However, we treat our customers with respect. If you want to play with products for a few hours and buy nothing, that's O.K... come in and play! Our store is your playground."

Having been in the makeup artist industry for over 30 years, Mary knows quality and value and understands what an artist needs. She's the buyer for Camera Ready Cosmetics, and chooses only what she would use on set.

"If you are looking for a product and you don’t find it here it’s because we have something better. Just ask us!"
