Hello hello!
I'm Tania D. Russell.
I teach people about Makeup and Makeup Artistry.

- Want to work on-set as a Media Makeup Artist but don't where to start?

- Need to develop a modernized curriculum to captivate new students?

- Unsure how to navigate the ever-changing beauty landscape?

Welcome to my world! Makeup to Go was founded in 2005 by me, Tania D. Russell.  To this very day I am a working media makeup artist and I have worked on everything from print advertising, to commercials, to magazines of all kinds, to celebrities.

I still love being on set, however, along the way in my career I realized my other true makeup passion is teaching others. What began as a side project with a successful series of 1-on-1 lessons and workshops, quickly grew into teaching in recognized accredited schools, and developing the industry respected Makeup to Go Blog.  I have been very fortunate to have helped many emerging artists begin their own successful careers, and to have worked with schools and brands to upgrade their offerings. I hope to continue to help many more.

Makeup and the makeup industry are way different than they were even 5 years ago. Yet much of makeup education for professional artistry has not changed in decades. This is where I come in. The goal of Makeup to Go’s educational services is to educate artists, and aid in the development of makeup education that is in alignment with the increasingly diversified beauty landscape.

What Does "Media Makeup" mean?

Media makeup artist refers to an artist who works on projects for Print, Web, Television, Video, and/or Film, for publication and/or broadcast.

Why the name "Makeup to Go!"?

The title is a nod to the song “Lyrics to Go” by A Tribe Called Quest 😉 It’s just an upbeat name that reflects the belief that at the end of the day, makeup should be about creativity, expression, and fun.
