Mission Statement

Makeup Artists of Atlanta was founded in 2004 by Kat Flynt (now Kat Pfender) for the purpose of creating camaraderie between the Makeup Artists, Beauty Advisors, Estheticians, and Cosmetologists working in the Beauty Industry anywhere in the metro Atlanta area, also to provide events where these beauty professionals can come together and share ideas, build relationships to send referrals back to each other whenever offered an assignment they are unable to accept due to already being booked, and to raise the bar of excellence within our profession by offering ongoing training for each artist to sharpen his or her skills.

By the end of 2016 Kat Pfender had semi-retired from working on the commercial side of the industry, returned to the bridal side only part-time, and handed over the role as President of Makeup Artists of Atlanta to Kimberly Crocker who had been an active member and served on the leadership team since early in 2009 co-hosting and coordinating many of the events with Kat. Kimberly is passionate about carrying on the mission for creating camaraderie between the Makeup Artists serving the Atlanta area.
