The makeup and fashion visionary preps us for fall.

The young and talented Akil McCoy has swept the world by storm with his wisdom, execution, and contagious personality. The MUA has one mission in mind, to be a male artist who crafts wonderful works while staying true to himself.

Growing up, Akil’s mother encouraged him to freely create, which involved everything, including painting, drawing, and fashion design. When he lost his mother to cancer, Akil had difficulties remaining passionate about what he loved. After a large lump sum of money was rewarded to him and his sibling, it only took him a year before he was back at square one. In Akil’s words, “I ran through the money and started doing makeup at the end of that year, and I was piss poor broke.”
