Lupita Woo is an up and coming makeup artist based out of Orange County, CA. She got started in the industry due to her passion for art. She sees makeup artistry as a form of artistic self-expression. She was a self taught makeup artist, until she attended CAMMUA in Newport Beach, CA where she received her Basic Artistry Certification under the instruction of Gia Deo.

She started her own blog almost a year ago where she posted interviews and "Celeb of the Week" articles focusing mainly on fashion. The summer of 2012 was when she really got serious about going into makeup artistry. She enrolled into CAMMUA for a short course which gave her the confidence to go out there and push herself. Doing everything possible to get her name out there from Twitter, Facebook, to building her own website, she did it all on her own with the support of her husband, Ricky. She booked runway shows with small clothing companies in the area and started doing more shoots with photographers she networked with. In October of that last year, she was nominated to be Orange County's Makeup Artist of the Year for the Raw Artist organization. It was such an honor for her and it gave her more motivation to keep true to her artistry, never giving up.
