Hi and welcome to my site! My name is Trinity, some may know me online as MissMauiMac. My motto is "Real Makeup For Real People, By a Real Makeup Artist."
I began my career as a Chanel artist in 2004 while living in Washington, DC. In 2005, I moved back home to Maui but it didn't take long for "island fever" to kick in, and in June 2007, I said "Aloha" to the islands and touched down in Fabulous Las Vegas.
Makeup was always a passion for me. As far back as I can recall, I was saving magazine clippings out of my Mom's Cosmo mags, doing my friend's and cousin's makeup, and loving the art aspect of it all. In 2009, I started the "Harajuku Hunnies" makeup line, and in 2011, I quit my corporate job and decided to do makeup full-time. I have been blessed to build a loyal clientele from all over the globe. In January 2017, I became a Preferred Vendor for David's Bridal.
I also worked for M.A.C. Cosmetics as a full-time artist, and honed my craft at the number 1 store in the West, M.A.C. Pro (at that time they were in the Caesar's Palace Forum Shops.) While there, I taught the very first Technique Class of its kind, drawing customers from other states, and assisted Senior Artists during M.A.C. Pro classes. It was a great experience but I decided retail was no longer for me. I wanted to grow my artistry in different ways.
In 2017, I set a goal to pursue another area of beauty- permanent makeup! My clients have always raved about how much they love their brows when I do their makeup so I knew this would be a natural transition for me. My years of experience with makeup trends and bone structure knowledge have definitely helped when it came to mapping beautiful permanent brows on my clients. In December 2018, I opened the doors to my very own microblading studio, Beauty By Trinity!
This year, I have partnered with fellow creative genius, Ruben Martinez, to bring creative education to Las Vegas. My first CraftShare class was held on March 31, 2019 at Yost Salon. We are planning more CraftShare classes throughout the year. If you are a makeup artist, hair stylist, photographer, or have been thinking of pursuing any of these as a possible career, contact me for more information on reserving your seat at our next class!
What sets me apart? Why choose me?
My professionalism, my integrity, and my work ethic are a few things that set me apart from the rest. My experience is vast. From bridal, runway, editorial, commercial, e-commerce, hospitality/tourism, and production... I've done it all. Aside from Advanced Certifications for makeup, I have medical certifications and blood-borne pathogen training. I am known to have some of the strictest sanitation and hygienic guidelines (this should be as important to you as it is to me,) ask my models and celebrity clients! My ability to listen and create, and my attention to detail both on face and on set are invaluable. I believe in investing in my kit, my craft, and continuing education. The only question left now is, are you ready to invest all of this into YOU?
