Welcome to Shiro Cosmetics! We're proud to offer high quality, vegan, cruelty-free makeup blended by hand in small batches from our lovely little Portland laboratory. Our inspiration comes from our passions and interests in pop culture, which we've used to create a wide range of unique, vibrant products and colors. We're also proud to stock wonderful products handmade by other indie artisans from across the globe. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll find something to love!
Meet the friendly humans of Shiro
Caitlin founded Shiro Cosmetics at the age of 19, when she found herself with excessive free time after breaking her arm in a snowboarding accident. She collects books with reckless abandon at the expense of both her budget and usable living space, and constantly rotates through different craft-based hobbies in order to learn as many skills as possible in case of apocalypse. Caitlin currently lives just south of Portland with her young son, handsome fella, floppy-eared dog, and exceptionally fluffy cat.
Lauren joined the Shiro team in 2012 and quickly proved herself an invaluable partner, as she possesses the uncanny ability to perfectly read Caitlin's mind, and yet very rarely uses it for (total) evil. Lauren splits her downtime between playing video games, mastering the subtle art of including sloths in interior decorating, and reading dozens of different adaptations of Beauty and the Beast. She currently lives south of Portland with her giant husband and two kitties.
Andrew is our number one order-filler and web maintenance bro! His primary superpower is the ability to completely ignore all the ridiculousness, no matter how extreme, that Caitlin and Lauren are doubtlessly spouting at any given moment. His secondary superpower is looking like Jon Snow. Sometimes he starts rubber band fights.
Tori is a totally rad vegan babe with enviable mermaid hair. She fills stock, blends colors, brings us homemade baked goods, and has a cat with silly teeth!
