I want to introduce this quirky and totally awesome store from NYC called Breakups To Makeup, created by makeup artist Angelique Velez. Breakups to Makeup is an accessories line featuring t-shirts, clutches, stickers, beanies and phone cases. Everything is sold online, and it is so cool and fun, it will get people talking and heads turning with smiles.
The messaging is the best part about this line. My favorite is “Losing you hurt but losing my makeup bag would be a tragedy” and the uber famous “Love raised me, lipstick saved me”. The makeup clutches are made of a black canvas material screen printed in silver metallic foil. The size of the clutch is approximately 8.5 X 8.5″. The interior fabric is a vintage yellow material accompanied with the company’s label attached to the side.
During the Makeup Show NYC, I got some Breakups to Makeup stickers which now decorate my Cozzette brush vessel where I carry my pro brushes. My brush vessel always gets lots of compliments. The stickers and t-shirts are adorable, you can order tank tops and full size t-shirts. Recently, I attended the Breakups to Makeup anniversary event here in New York and got the cutest brush holder, compliments of Angelique. Thank you so much! I love all these and wish you every success in the years to come. You are a total inspiration to us, a makeup artist, educator and a business woman!
Breakups to Makeup is available online at Etsy
