A Milwaukee, WI-based makeup artist and creative with over 10 years of professional experience.


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. 
In 2017, Rich relocated to California where he worked with the Lancome Brand as a beauty advisor and worked for Clinique as a Counter Manager within the Ulta Store. He also worked behind the scenes for several gospel recording artists as a makeup artist, and behind the scenes for small video and tv opportunities. In late 2018, Rich took a position as an Account/Sales Coordinator and National Artist for Urban Decay (Midwest region) in Milwaukee, WI working specifically within the Ulta stores to provide education and sales training, as well as artistry techniques to sales associates and staff within his territory.
In 2020, Rich relaunched Rich King Makeup with a purpose and passion to provide top-notch skilled artistry services for those looking to enhance natural beauty with sophistication and ease. His aim is to also provide artistry education and detailed training to those looking to develop careers in makeup artistry or refine their own talents for personal use. 
Rich King’s work is being recognized in the city of Milwaukee as one of the leading makeup artists as he continues to develop his craft to serve people of all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life.
