Beth Amphetamine & Rachel Boese travel the country for their makeup line, subscription box & magazine. They do makeup for small films, in haunted houses and go on tour with bands. They have kind of a cool life and their goal is to promote self expression, inclusivity & the pursuit of dreams in whatever they do. It wasn't always this way, they truly started from the bottom and are still working their way up with a work ethic and ambition unfettered by society's expectations and doubts.
Less than 4% of individuals born below the poverty line ever make it out, we have. Despite years of setbacks, homelessness and trauma, we have. This is part of why we are committed to give back with this product line & all of our other endeavors to help as many people as we can. After we went viral earlier in 2018, we've had some growing pains, but the best is definitely yet to come and we can't wait to share all of that with you. Each and every one of you reading this page right now, means the absolute world to us. We love you.
We initially started these lifestyle companies because we noticed a gap in accessibility to affordable and quality alternative makeup and clothing. It all started with our makeup line, Belladonna's Cupboard. We started formulation in 2011 when we could barely scrap $10 together at the end of the month. It took us months to get to the point where we could place our first large order for supplies. We Officially Launched with the help of Betablox business incubator in Kansas City in 2014 and presented for their Demo Day in 2015. In 2018, we moved the company to Southern California and after years of hard work, we are finally at a point of growth and expansion.
Our makeup line is 100% Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Vegan and Paraben Free and designed for special effects makeup artists and performers to be long wearing for stage and film use but gentle and easy to wash off. We've spent years working in haunted houses and on horror films and alongside musicians and burlesque performers to develop and improve our products. When formulating, we follow the rigorous cosmetics standards that the EU puts forth since they are more strict that the U.S.A. FDA guidelines. Our makeup is worn by performers all over the world, some examples include Dan Sperry Anti-Conjuror
, Shelly d'Inferno
& Kimberly Freeman
of One-Eyed Doll. We also offer free online Special Effects and Basic to Advanced makeup lessons on our website.
Join the Revolution!

Beth Amphetamine doesn't do drugs, she IS a drug and everyone is addicted to her. She is very picky with her tastes in music, but likes a wide variety of genres and bands from Deathstars to Nick Cave and Backstreet Boys. She will judge you based on your taste in music. She spent her teenage years on tour with metal bands since she finished high school early. Oregon is her favorite place in the world, followed by Hollywood at night.
