After graduation from MUD she went on to work for some of the most prestigious cosmetics companies in the industry, Laura Mercier and MAC cosmetics. Working with such brands gave her the opportunity to continue learning. "It was one of the best things I could have ever done to grow as an artist." With the opportunity to be hands on with the makeup Tina was able to experience working with a variety of skin type and ethnicities as well as focus on trend. Outside the stores Tina was always reaching out to do more freelance projects. Never thinking of doing makeup as work, Tina knew she wanted to go places with her passion and dreams of being a top artist.
Tina is now a full time freelance makeup artist based in Minnesota's twin cities area. Full of love and passion for her work she continues to develop herself as an artist. Never keeping inside a box or being pinned down to a specific style of makeup gives her cutting edge and well rounded approach to the industry.
