Patricia Regan- Makeup Artist
Red Creme to Powder Blush - “I think it should be called Patricia’s Red! The Creme to Powder blushes [...] are versatile and I use them continuously. The application is flawless and I have complete control over the saturation of color.”

Cool and Warm Lip Gloss Palettes - “...They’re definitely great to have on hand and they have been trusty little saviors. I like that they are small and easy to carry.”

Patricia often calls upon Three Custom Color Specialists to create custom colors for her high profile work in film and television - most often finding inspiration in the archive of over 10,000 discontinued shades in every color imaginable dating back to the 1930’s. "I enjoy the fact that I can go see them. The turnaround on orders is very quick and they are always a pleasure.”

Recent credits include: Remember Me, Shutter Island, Burn After Reading, The Good Shepard, Factotum, Flight of the Concords and HBO’s five-part miniseries Mildred Pierce, based on the 1941 novel by James M. Cain. Kate Winslet stars as Mildred Pierce and Evan Rachel Wood also stars as Veda Pierce.

A native of Switzerland, Patricia originally moved to New York with a scholarship to study dance. It was then when she first became enamored with the power of make up to enhance the arts. “I always loved theatrical make-up and its ability to bring characters alive.” Patricia says.

Thereafter, she made a gradual transition to becoming a makeup artist, at first working with photographers for fellow performing arts friends, and then journeyed through all aspects of music, television, rock 'n’ roll, the beauty industry, commercials and ultimately, creating characters for feature films. Patricia says, "I am so lucky and forever grateful, for I love what I do.”

Rebecca Restrepo - Makeup Artist
"I can not live without my Light and Medium Clarifiers. I absolutely love the Clear Brow Gel - it never flakes or clumps (it’s also great as a clear mascara). I also love the Crème to Powder Blushes, they go on matte and give a natural glow on the cheeks so you always look healthy in person and in pictures. Because of their textures they don’t spot or move on the cheeks. I was lucky to create my own, Rebecca’s Favorite. It has become a Three Custom staple!"

Rebecca, is native New Yorker of Colombian heritage. She works in editorial, advertising and on celebrities. She studied fashion at F.I.T. and received a B.F.A. at S.V.A., so makeup is the perfect progression and combination of her two loves.

She believes makeup should always be fun and pretty - it’s another accessory to our clothes and an extension of our personalities, after all! A woman can say anything she wants with a quick makeup change, it is the beauty of being a woman.

"I love Three Custom because of the quality of the products, the inventive take on products, the fact you can create a color or reproduce one that has been discontinued and their amazing customer service. They have products that no one has, like their Clarifying Pencils."

Quinn Murphy - Makeup Artist
Murphy didn't have a beauty career in mind when he graduated from Boston University, but he did know that he wanted to end up in New York City. "I packed a U-Haul and moved the day after graduation," he says. A chance job opportunity from a temp agency landed Murphy in a position at Estée Lauder, where he worked in product development for the M.A.C. and Estée Lauder brands. "It was an eye opener," Murphy says. "I had this secret, undiscovered love of makeup, and it all kind of came out."

Murphy wanted to parlay his corporate experience into an even more creative venture, and found himself interested in the artistic side of the business. "I took a big leap and assisted for a long time with top industry makeup artists," he said. "Instead of learning to do makeup behind a counter, I learned from experts."

He also worked part time for Three Custom Color Specialists, making eye shadows, lipsticks, and foundations. His big break came with an unexpected phone call from Mariah Carey. "We hit it off right away, and the next thing I knew, she asked if I was available to do concerts, award shows, and photo shoots," he says. He ended up spending about eight months with Carey in 2008, traveling the world. "That experience just catapulted my career," Murphy says. Since then, he's worked with a number of high-profile clients, including Anne Hathaway, Liv Tyler, and quite a few Victoria's Secret models. And when he's not glamorizing clients for the red carpet, you'll find Murphy doing what he enjoys most: working on-set in a studio. "I love the creative process," he says. "I love what I do. I love working with different people all the time and not having a traditional nine-to-five job. I'm always learning."
