Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jun 8, 2022

Danessa Myricks wears many hats. “Accidental Makeup Artist.” Photographer. Product Developer. Founder. Educator. Mentor. Single Mom. The New York-based multi-talent went from creating DVD makeup masterclasses to starting a highly-coveted line of makeup products – never taking ‘no’ for an answer. In today’s episode, we learn the secrets behind the Queen-of-Creams’ unique approach to anti-matte makeup, including how-to set cream textures and which exact makeup brushes she uses to magically transform a lush finish.


But first, Danessa explains the backstory behind her sky-rocket success, from the very personal reason why she leaned into makeup education, to the life-changing moment she became a product developer for Benefit Cosmetics, along with details on the best-selling, 130+ shade range of Danessa Myricks Colorfix Eye, Cheek & Lip Cream Pigments found in every major makeup artist’s kit. Finally, we find out how Danessa has dealt with adversity in her career, creating a product-driven business adored by TikTok fans and Meghan Markle alike.
