Michael Moore has worked in the cosmetics industry since 1988 with brand leaders such as Bobbi Brown Essentials, Borghese, Chanel, Guerlain, and Estée Lauder. In New York City, he was often seen backstage during fashion week, supporting major designers such as Bill Blass, Joan Vass, Oscar de la Renta, Badgley Mischka, Bob Mackie, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger and Vera Wang.
But eventually, the quality of the Colorado lifestyle—the healthy, natural atmosphere that inspires his technique—drew him out west, where he opened Simply Moore in Denver’s own center of chic, Cherry Creek North. “There is fresh air, and a connection to the ground out here,” Michael says. Developing a pure mineral makeup line was right on point with the natural and vibrant lifestyle Michael had sought, and which is manifested in everything Simply Moore teaches.
Today, Michael works regularly with print and television media for photo shoots, fashion content, and special events. His makeup artistry has graced publications (INStyle, Redbook, McCall’s, The New York Times, The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, Australian Elle and Australian and German Vogue) and television shows (Oprah, The Today Show, E! Entertainment Television) in more than a dozen countries. And Michael has had the distinct pleasure of working with countless celebrities, royalty, and political figures.
