Ana Buitrago began her makeup career as a retail artist for MAC Cosmetics in 2010 and quickly realized her love for creating stunning looks for her clients. In 2011, Ana established her freelance business “Makeup by Ana B” in the basement of her parents home while raising three young boys with her husband.
She soon discovered that her clients were seeking hair styling as well, which led to her mastering the art of updos for brides and special events. As Ana’s reputation for excellence in artistry grew, so did her clientele. Her passion to mentor others became a reality as she trained and added talented stylists to her team also known as “MAB Artistry”.
Ana is proud to have helped grow the careers of over 70 beauty professionals over the last 10 years through MAB’s extensive training, network, and luxury client base, and continues to empower the next generation of beauty bosses.
