She began her makeup artistry career with MAC Cosmetics in 2001 working as a Freelance Makeup Artist along side top industry professionals. She was quickly promoted to the title of MAC Pro Artist, giving her the opportunity to train other freelance makeup artists, driving her passion for Beauty Education. Emily 's artistry education came directly from others on the MAC Pro Team from the exclusive MAC Master Classes, of which she attended a total of 16 classes.
