ABOUT RICH KING MAKEUP
Richard “Rich” King has always had a passion for beauty and cosmetology. In his youth, he was always found experimenting and creating on family members; trying out various makeup and hair products, and exploring the possibilities of the cosmetology arena.
He began his professional makeup artistry career as a freelance artist for MAC Cosmetics. Within a couple of years, Rich excelled in not only makeup artistry but also developed a strong sales acumen. Rich was given a permanent position within the brand in which he received technical training through MAC’s training programs; widely known as one of the premier brands for aspiring artists to be trained on all levels of makeup artistry.
After working for MAC for several years more, becoming a product specialist for the Appleton location, Rich branded the first Rich King Makeup business and traveled throughout Wisconsin and Illinois providing professional makeup applications for clients of all skin tones, age ranges. He notably served clients in both corporate and artistic settings; created a signature class in partnership with the Red and White Wine Bar called Makeup & Moscato, and even became the frequently called upon makeup artist for many of the Fox Valley area elite, Green Bay Packer wives and more.
