FEATURED STORY LOS NOBLES

MEGAN MARTINEZ | QUEEN OF COSMETICS

note from the Editor:

“For our Spring 2019 “Viva La Mujer: The Next Wave” Edition, we featured the best of the best in Texas, Latinas who are building empires, legacies, out there conquering the world. Picking a cover was a difficult choice, but Megan’s story is not only one of tremendous success but also overcoming everything that life has thrown at her. A survivor of the world at the hands of the worst, yet like an alchemist she was able to transform pain into beauty.

Martinez is everything we could hope for in a leading Latina of Texas, brilliant, a hustler, strength, filled with orgullo and love for her community; a fierce Latina in every sense of the word. We are proud to introduce our 2019 cover, Megan Martinez!” – Yol-Itzma Aguirre, Editor-in-Chief

LEADING THE NEXT WAVE IN COSMETICS IS TEXAN MEGAN MARTINEZ, FROM CORPUS CHRISTI. TO SAY SHE IS JUST AN ‘MUA’ WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. MARTINEZ, FOUNDER OF ‘CHAOS MAKEUP’ IS COMPLETELY SELF-TAUGHT; A MASTER IN THE ART OF MAKEUP AND THE SCIENCE OF COLOR CHEMISTRY, MAKE HER CREATIONS TRULY MAGIC.

MEGAN’S SUCCESS STORY IS A SURVIVAL STORY. AS A TEENAGER, WHEN MOST KIDS ARE WORRYING ABOUT PROM AND WHAT TO WEAR, MARTINEZ WAS WORRYING ABOUT HER NEXT MEAL AND WHERE SHE AND HER FAMILY WOULD LIVE. WHILE STRUGGLING WITH TWO JOBS AND GOING TO SCHOOL, SHE MADE THE CHOICE TO SURVIVE AND SO RIGHT AFTER SHE TURNED 18, SHE DROPPED OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. TO BE SO YOUNG AND NOW BE FACING THE WORLD ON YOUR OWN, COULD HAVE BEEN THE END OF HER STORY, BUT IT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

MAKEUP BECAME A CREATIVE OUTLET AND AS SHE DID MAKEUP FOR HER FRIENDS, THERE BEGAN TO BE A BUZZ. WITH THE POWER OF MYSPACE HER POPULARITY BEGAN TO GROW AND SO DID HER BOOKINGS. MAKEUP SAVED HER LIFE.

A  NATURAL INNOVATOR, MARTINEZ SHE HAS BEEN CREATING NEW LOOKS LONG BEFORE THEY WERE TRENDING. WHEN COLORS THAT SHE WANTED WEREN’T FOUND ON THE SHELVES,SHE LITERALLY TAUGHT HERSELF CHEMISTRY AND MADE THEM. THIS WOULD BE THE START OF CHAOS MAKEUP. OVER THE YEARS SHE HAS BEEN PERFECTING THE SCIENCE OF COLORS AND EFFECTS. KEEPING HER TALENT IN CORPUS CHRISTI AND NOT RELOCATING MEANS THAT SHE HAS HAD TO BUILD HER OWN LABS AND MAKE EACH PRODUCT HERSELF, BY HAND.

 

NOW TEN YEARS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND WITH THE LOVE AND SUPPORT OF A COUPLE OF HER CLOSEST FRIENDS, MEGAN IS ON HER WAY TO BECOMING THE NEXT MAKEUP MOGUL. ALREADY HAVING BEEN AN ESTABLISHED MUA, NOW HER CUSTOM FORMULA AND LINE OF HIGHLIGHTERS AND MULTICHROME SHADES HAVE TAKEN THE WORLD BY STORM. SHE HAS BEEN INTERVIEWED BY ALL THE TOP MAGAZINES AND WITH CELEBS LIKE CARDI B SPORTING HER SHADES, THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS. ONE THE THING IS CERTAIN, THE AQUA SKY’S THE LIMIT.

MARTINEZ HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED BY THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI, NUECES COUNTY, STATE OF TEXAS AND U.S. CONGRESS, FOR HER SERVICE TO HER COMMUNITY. NOT ONLY IS SHE A LEADING LATINA IN THE WORLD OF COSMETICS, BUT MEGAN IS AN AVID HUMANITARIAN WITH A FOCUS ON ANIMAL RESCUES AND AIDING THE HOMELESS.

MARTINEZ’S PERSONAL JOURNEY IS AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF OVERCOMING ADVERSITY AND PERSEVERANCE, MEGAN’S RISE TO SUCCESS HAS TAUGHT US ALL TO NEVER GIVE UP OR GIVE IN, ALWAYS CONTINUE TO BELIEVE.

MEGAN MARTINEZ, OUR TEXAS QUEEN OF COSMETICS WITH A HEART OF SPARKLING MULTICHROME, GOLD.
