When Natalie isn't working, you will likely find her makeup-free and shuttling around her two kiddos to after-school activities in athleisure, grocery shopping with fresh flowers in hand, or writing super long and thoughtful Instagram captions. You can follow Natalie on Instagram here.

Natalie Setareh realized she was destined to teach people makeup as a result of doing makeup on her clients. See, as she was doing makeup, she was explaining everything she was doing to make the client at ease. This led to more and more private lesson requests and eventually, the publication of Be Your Own Makeup Artist in 2019.

makeup is for everyone.

I've taken extreme care to keep all the copy in the book gender, race, and age neutral. I've also wanted to keep the price as affordable as possible while still delivering world-class makeup education. Why? Because makeup is for everyone. 


this book is not designed for professional makeup artists

I wrote this book because of the extreme lack of unbiased, easy-to-understand and implement makeup education. If you are looking for technical makeup education, this book is not it. 


it's not just about makeup for me.

I didn't write this book with the intention for you to go out and feel the need to buy more makeup. Quite the contrary, actually. I wrote this book so that you can consider yourself an educated makeup wearer and consumer.
