Julie Taing


Before Adouré Beauty & Ink, Julie Taing was a professional makeup artist working in the industry for over 15 years. Her career began at Sephora working as a color expert and quickly made the Sephora Pro Team (Team of 12 Elite artists that represent Sephora internally and externally from fashion week, celebrity, product development, artistry mentorship, literally every job you can think of we were apart of). She spent 10 years on the team and 2 years as the Sephora Pro Lead Artist mentoring the team. She dedicated 10 years of her career traveling 80% of the year educating and sharing her passion for beauty artistry. She has had the honor of working with celebrities, influencers, musicians, fellow artists, and also assisting some of the top artists around the world. Her work has been featured in magazines, campaigns, fashion week and on the red carpet. Her passion for creative artistry, education, and desire to have more work life balance motivated her to pursue a career in permanent tattoo and grow some roots back in San Diego.

Adouré Beauty officially launched in 2018 with a mission to help everyone discover and embrace their unique beauty and confidence by creating an atmosphere where you can feel not only inspired but also at ease, like we’re hanging out with friends.

Our motto: We’re here to empower, encourage, and inspire with each individual giving world class service

Adouré Ink officially launched 2023 offering fine line tattoos specializing in floral, micro-realism, anime and script.

Julie is an advanced certified artist in permanent brows (microblading, ombré powder, microshading combo, feather nano), lip blushing, lip neutralization, brow tattoo removal, and various eyeliner styles. As a lip blush master trainer, she launched her own course in 2020. In 2022, she gained certification in fine line and tiny tattoos, expanding her services in 2023. In 2024 she decided to continue her education and received her advanced certification in floral and micro-realism fine line tattoos. Beyond her expertise, Julie has a deep passion for art, exploring resin, painting, and drawing, driven by years of experience at Sephora where she wrote artistry programs and trained numerous students.

Julie spent many years with Sephora writing programs for all levels of artistry and trained hundreds of students that it came natural for her to want to continue educating in the permanent makeup world.
