MAC makeup classes are a must if you’re thinking about becoming a MAC makeup artist….and who wouldn’t want to be? MAC stands for Makeup Art Cosmetics. The company was founded in 1984 by two men named Frank Toscan and Frank Angelo. Their company began at that time in Toronto, Canada. The first United States store did not open up until 1991 however and that was in Greenwich Village, NY. At first, these makeup products were only sold to professionals, but now they are sold retail all over the world. Unfortunately the founder, Frank Angelo passed away in 1998 and Estee Lauder, another popular makeup manufacturer took over the company.
