About Us


E.A.T.O.W connects achievers in the beauty, arts & entertainment industries to gain insight & knowledge to their success. Founded by Eryca Freemantle a world-leading brand beauty strategist & former makeup artist, we teach women of colour the tools and skills needed to fully embrace their power to fulfil their potential and supercharge their careers, we promote, highlights and showcases women of colour in the makeup industry.



We raise the profile of individuals who participate, by encouraging, embracing and motivating women of colour in the makeup industry, but not exclusive too. The competition was created because mainstream still does not acknowledge the work of black women in the makeup industry, or the ordinary women who feels comfortable and capable of applying makeup to darker skin tones.


We realise those starting out their careers as MUA’s or people who are makeup lovers & influencers need additional help to find their way and of course need to be celebrated. With our growing platform, the wealth of our knowledge and encouragement we continue it is vital to the business success of those want to pursue the industry. We celebrate MU lovers: show them how they can adapt, run their businesses as well as their creative talent.

Most women use makeup; some sparingly and sometimes not even every day and then there are the ladies who turn their cosmetics into a serious hobby. These are the women we turn to when we want to know about the latest techniques and styles. We call them the gurus, the experts, the true make-up junkies. Is your affair with makeup only fleeting, extending mainly to lip gloss and mascara or are you a fully-fledged makeup junkie?
