Cleveland stylist and makeup artist DJ Victory has been beautifying Northeast Ohio for many years out of Enzo's Salon & Spa in North Royalton, including her jaw-dropping signature extension color work. On June 1, Victory's own cosmetics line Macy & Mia releases a makeup collection called 'Playtime is Over' in collaboration with Seven Hills' Ashley Sebera, aka WWE Superstar Dana Brooke.
The cosmetics line features five products: the 'Determined to Glow' highlighter palette, 'Dana' lipgloss, 'DJ' lipgloss, 'Eyes on the Prize' 3D lashes, and a lush, waterproof mascara.
"When we sat down to create the products, colors, and names in the collection, we immediately thought of the word 'Strong,'" Victory tells Scene. "Having been through many obstacles in our lives, we wanted to really show the determination her and I both have and how much stronger we are today."

Having a friend like Ashley Sebera/Dana Brooke has allowed DJ Victory's Macy & Mia cosmetics line to appear on national television through WWE.
"I know that a few of the ladies really like my products and that makes me so happy," Victory says. "They probably wouldn’t know of my products if it weren’t for Ashley so I’m incredibly grateful for her introducing Macy & Mia to the Glam Squad and the ladies of the WWE."
Many of the Macy & Mia products are high-quality, affordable and cruelty-free. Named after DJ Victory's beloved pets, she donates 10 percent of all retail sales to Pay it Forward for Pets, a 100 percent non-profit organization focusing on animal rescue, pets for Vets, pets for senior citizens and humane education programs.
Most cosmetics companies are located on the West Coast, but Victory's Macy & Mia is located right here in Cleveland.
"It’s extremely difficult and extremely rewarding," she says. "This industry is very, very competitive and I’m a very tiny fish in a very large body of water. I have high hopes though."
'Playtime Is Over' will be available on the Macy & Mia's website June 1 at 9 a.m. EST.
