About Us


Glitter to Gore was founded by Michelle Soltis and Dawn Marie Svanoe. Their support network of passionate make-up enthusiasts and friends pushed the duo to make the leap from hobby to business after a particularly memorable Halloween tradeshow.

In 2006, Michelle and Dawn Marie officially launched Glitter to Gore, a professional and special effects make-up service provider.

Today, Glitter to Gore is a booming online retailer of professional and special fx make-up. The retail location on beautiful dowtown Mt. Horeb owned and operated by Michelle and Sid Soltis, boasts many services including: face and body painting, airbrush and glitter tattoos, and even spray tanning. Glitter to Gore’s lead artist, Dawn Marie was featured on the highly popular TV show Skin Wars and their client network has grown to include heavy hitters ThermoFischer, MTV, Superfly, and Epic.

Glitter to Gore has expanded to offer their own line of products (G2GFX) with Biodegradable Cosmetic Glitter being their first product.
