Beauty Mark Ink is a team of professional makeup and hair artists that service the entire Bay Area and Sacramento. Although at first is started as a small family business. Vanessa Quinteros teamed up with her niece Jennifer Gamez, and her sister to form Beauty Mark Ink. Their inclination to the Beauty business was only natural, as their mom/grandma has worked as a stylist for over 30 years. Vanessa grew up going to the hair salon almost every day after school! Altogether playing “runway”, and “makeup” with each other. As time passed they each kept their passion for makeup alive in various forms, whether it be at School Theater, or doing makeup for friends and family. They soon realized it was time to pursue their art and attended school to become professional makeup artists. They created Beauty Mark Ink, and worked hard to make a name for themselves in the Bay Area bridal business, providing the best client service. As business boomed they soon realized they had to partner with other professionals in the Bay Area to meet the demand. Vanessa with her back ground in management took the lead in interviewing and selecting talented hair stylists to join the team, while Jennifer assisted in the “back end” part of the business. Now they are known for providing some of the best bridal services in the Bay Area. The team is constantly training, learning, and evolving to provide the most current state of the art beauty services. Although our team specializes in Bridal, we provide beauty services for all occasions, including lessons, professional classes, and much more!
