Makeup Artist Bobbie Weiner aka 'Bloody Mary' owns and operates a multi-million dollar makeup company. She is the #1 supplier of camouflage face paint for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Bobbie Weiner is a makeup artist who employs over 250 people. She created the blue-lipped icicle-covered corpses in the mega-hit movie "Titanic". She's been featured on CNN, Entertainment Tonight and Extreme Makeover. She has her own bestselling comic book and even her own hot sauce. Currently, Weiner owns and operates a multi-million dollar makeup company. She is the #1 supplier of camouflage face paint for the U.S. Department of Defense, has a line of Halloween makeup, ”Bloody Mary” and has a full line of sports fan makeup kits in team specific colors that sells worldwide for all sports.
Yet, she had no makeup experience until attending makeup school in her 40's. Her story is an inspiration to female entrepeneurs and makeup artists worldwide. In her new book, I Can Do This: The Bloody Mary Story
, Bobbie Weiner reveals her roller coaster ride to success.
Told in her own dynamic, comical and very real style of prose, Bobbie's story starts with her plastic surgeon husband divorcing her after 10 years of marriage. She finds herself suddenly needing an income and a new identity. Bobbie goes from 'the doctor's wife' to 'Bloody Mary' in a few short years and her story is a kick.
I picked up this book at More magazine's Reinvention Convention in LA, where Bobbie was one of the guest speakers on a panel discussing second acts, reinvention and how women can turn their big ideas into big business. Bobbie truly stole the show and had the audience's attention with her quick wit and advice woman can use today.
The Barnes & Noble booth had her book and I'm very glad I picked it up.
