Michelle Martinez began the ‘Beso’ brand in March 2013. With a background in art, she began her career in the makeup industry at the age of sixteen with her very own studio. Ambitious at a young age, Michelle immersed herself in the cosmetic industry and never looked back.
Michelle was first introduced to permanent cosmetics by her mother during her high school years. Her mom worked part-time as a permanent cosmetic technician and was the first to teach Michelle the fundamentals of cosmetic tattooing. This prompted Michelle to later study and receive certification as a permanent cosmetic technician.
After years of hard work and dedication, Michelle was able to make her vision a reality when she first opened Beso Makeup. As a self-proclaimed ‘workaholic’, Michelle was constantly looking to perfect her work and began to research and explore different forms of cosmetic tattooing. She ventured into new techniques, studied abroad, and was always one to stay innovative. She was amazed at the results and was excited to offer it to her clients. By immersing herself into work, Michelle Martinez has become one of the most sought after artists in the New Orleans area.
Full of knowledge and a desire to teach, Michelle opened Beso Beauty, a school of Permanent Makeup. In an industry that has become commercialized, Beso Beauty was formed to maintain integrity in the permanent cosmetic world. Beso Beauty is dedicated to providing each student with the necessary tools and knowledge for a successful career.
