We have asked she share her story with us in hopes it will give life to a dream many of you are trying to find a way to break into. We are very proud of Alicia and her many accomplishments. She is a sweetheart and very humble - we had to basically beg her to "brag" a little about herself for this blog post. We are beyond grateful for our friendship and having the opportunity to see her using and loving her MintPear Beauty Products! We can't wait to see where her success leads her next.
Please share this post with your friends and if you have any questions for Alicia or our MintPear community, please leave your comment below and we will respond quickly.
 
Alicia Barry,
a mother of 2 boys. Has been doing makeup for film for about 2 years now. In high school and college she would do makeup for theater but never took it seriously back then. She studied photography and that's how she started out in the creative world, photographing live concerts. She did that for 7 years. She decided to career change into the beauty industry in order to better support her family. She went to cosmetology school in San Francisco and worked in a salon for about 4 years.  When her second child was born she took a leap of faith and quit her job in order to pursue her original love for makeup. She did fashion shows and photoshoots, until one day she received a call for a makeup artist. It was a request to do makeup for a film by Christopher Coppola! After dedication and following her love for makeup, her big break finally came. She said YES of course without any hesitation. From that day on she has had many opportunities open up to her and she has since been shifting into the film world.
Alicia works both in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
