VALUES

MUA Co-op Group & School

MUA Co-op is a group of makeup artists, makeup enthusiasts, and brands that support MUA’s & MUE’s.
One of our founders felt herself and saw that artists sometimes struggle to stay engaged, motivated, and supported.
So we created a small makeup challenge group. Driven by the energy of our three founders, the group quickly blossomed into a huge community! Now, motivated by our desire to share the love of makeup artistry with everyone of all ages and skill levels,
we are launching the MUA Co-op School!

Hi, I’m Tina, the founder of the MUA Co-op Group and School for makeup artistry. I have always been an artistic person and have enjoyed working with many different media. Charcoal, India ink, chalk pastels, clay, and sewing were amongst my favorites until makeup came along and completely captured my heart.

I am a self taught makeup artists, children’s ESL teacher, homeschool mom, artist, and children’s book illustrator. I developed the MUA Co-op curriculum & school from a desire to bring people together in community, share my passion for teaching, and spread the joy of creating art with makeup!
