Mary Van is a wife, mother, and friend, who knows and cares about what women want and need. She created a product that makes women feel just as beautiful on the inside as they do on the outside. She wanted to give them something that would benefit their skin for years to come. In creating a line of natural makeup, that provides the perfect shade for every individual’s skin tone and contains only the highest quality ingredients, Van revolutionized the makeup industry.
Her career began as a makeup artist in the early 80s at a day spa, where she learned about the undertones of the skin, color analysis, and color draping. This knowledge enabled her to create foundation colors identical to each individual’s skin tone. If she couldn’t find the color she was looking for, she created custom formulations which became a color pallet to serve her client’s needs.
Van first began marketing and selling mineral-based makeup more than 15 years ago. Mineralogie was officially launched in 2003, introducing a makeup so pure and light it doesn’t clog pores, and at the same time nourishes and protects the skin.
This 20+ year history and experience led Van to create a makeup that was not only versatile and could match any individual’s skin tone, but a makeup that would also benefit a woman’s skin. Mineralogie was launched in 2003, introducing a makeup so pure and light it doesn’t clog pores, and at the same time nourishes and protects the skin. From conception to completion, Mary personally creates and delivers the most innovative products to the market.
Her success led her to work with a wide range of personalities, including; George W. Bush, LeAnn Rimes, Jane Seymour, Jessica Simpson and many others.
