How We Began:
Vigilante Cosmetics, LLC was formed when Erica Ages formerly of “ELA Makeup” and Corie Messer formerly “Corie Messer, Makeup Artist Superhero” met by chance at a commercial photo shoot. They were both freelance makeup artists prior to meeting one another. When they met in February of 2013 doing makeup for the Famous William Co. commercial shoot (Now, Six Hearts Photography). They instantly became friends. Erica, being the ambitious business woman that she was, had already recruited a team of Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists to join her ranks. She was building a great business base, and quickly.
Erica asked Corie to be part of the ELA Makeup team as an on call freelancer. Corie, who had a full-time job and rarely had time or energy to market her talents, was eager to work with the team and start doing what she loved. After Corie joined the team, she and Erica began devising their plan to take over the world! They chatted for hours on the phone, and through text, and constantly bounced ideas off of one another until one day they decided to re-brand the business together. Made from mutual respect for each other’s talent, and admiration of one another’s ambitions and goals, Vigilante Cosmetics LLC was born in April of 2014.
Corie and Erica are joint owners, of the award-winning, Vigilante Cosmetics. They currently have a team of 15 extremely skilled Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, and Nail Technicians.
