Mission Statement

Makeup Artists of Atlanta was founded in 2004 by Kat Pfender for the purpose of creating camaraderie between the Makeup Artists, Beauty Advisors, Estheticians, and Cosmetologists working in the Beauty Industry anywhere in the metro Atlanta area, also to provide events where these beauty professionals can come together and share ideas, build relationships to send referrals back to each other whenever offered an assignment they are unable to accept due to already being booked, and to raise the bar of excellence within our profession by offering ongoing training for each artist to sharpen his or her skills.

In 2016, Kat asked long-time member Kimberly Crocker to come on board and take the lead. These two veterans of the makeup industry combined have more than thirty-five years of experience providing makeup applications for print, TV commercials, video productions, fashion shoots, model portfolios, weddings, fashion shows, proms, pageants, weddings, and other special occasions.
