About me

Welcome to my very first blog post! There will be more to come... Hope you enjoy it.



Hello and Welcome to my page. I wanted to take some time to Introduce myself to anyone who doesn’t know what exactly Maycup By Yenisei is all about.  I’ll make this short and sweet, after all, ain’t no one got time to be reading a novel in the midst of all this Covid Distance Learning fiasco. 

After graduating high school in ‘04 I went straight to working for the Makeup and Fragrance department at Macy’s.  What’s that?  I don’t look like I’m 33? Oh my gosh, thank you.  Anyways, I worked at Macy’s though the crazy holiday season but always found myself hanging out at the MAC counter with all the cool kids. If you don’t remember the Downtown MAC counter back in those days... it was a completely different culture.  I wanted to be a MAC makeup artist more than anything else in the world.  One of the artist there recommended I get my license because it would be a great foundation to my career, which was the best decision I could have made.  So off to Federico’s Beauty Institutes I went, where I studied to be an Esthetician.  Got my license. Got the Dream Job at MAC and learned so much from my coworkers and clients in the 5 Years I worked there.  I’ve been freelancing as a Makeup Artist since then. I’ve made quiet a name for myself as Sacramento Bridal Makeup Artist in the passed 15 years if I don’t say so myself. I was happy.

Fast forward to 2016 and I was going to be turning 30. Talk about a midlife crisis. I was freaking out because I had nothing to show for in my 30 years of life. (Besides being a mom) But you know what I mean, you’ve been there too probably.  I was tired of working for “the man” and wanted to be my own boss.  Just like that, I signed up for Microblading and Lash extension classes.   I worked a full time job and then worked at the salon nights and weekends, still doing Bridal makeup, until I felt I was ready to venture off on my own as a full time Business Woman.  May of 2019 I finally did it.  I had enough with someone else telling me what to do...  One day I showed up to work and put in my 2 weeks. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. 

Once I make up my mind about something, that’s it. I know what I want and I go for it. Sure I’ve been scared out of my mind. And yes I was worried I would fail, but how else will we know what we are really made of?  Not even a year into being my own Boss and Covid hits.  I was pretty upset, I couldn’t believe this was really happening. My business, my clients.  Everything I had been working so hard towards, taken away in one swoop.  So I let myself be depressed for a while. Once that was over I decided to take this opportunity to better myself, take new trainings, prioritize my life and plan out where I wanted to be once the Salons open back up.  So that brings me to my next chapter. I don’t want to ruin any surprised but there is going to be a plot twist. So stay tuned y’all... its gonna be a doozy. 

Side note: I guess this wasn’t as short as I thought it was going to be but that ok.  I’m also not sure if that even counts as an introduction. Thank you to everyone who made it to the end of this.
