Who is behind Beauty Blend Studio? An esthetician, trained makeup artist, mother who shares her home with six boys, wife, self proclaimed beauty hoarder, junk collector, editor and professional photo/ fashion stylist. I have been obsessed with beauty since I can remember. The idea of playing with cosmetics and using your face as a canvas was alluring. My canvas has seen and felt many things; once slathered in pink frosted lipstick, lined in heavy charcoal liner, thick foundation, covered in acne, sunburns, fake tans, over plucked eyebrows, endless regimes promised to work, yet still my skin was reactive and unsettled. I spent my 20’s trying anything and abusing my skin. In my 30’s, I spent too much on beauty. I was enamored by smells, packaging, advertisements, and sales associates from high end cosmetic counters. Now, in my 40’s, I found myself drawn to products that are healthy, effective and straightforward.
Navigating the beauty industry can be tough; the hype, advertisements and fake promises can be less than desirable. Makeup and professional services should be enjoyable, relaxing and fun. I decided to create a cohesive beauty line which hopefully reflects just that. I met with manufacturers, artisans and consultants who helped me source, package, craft and create natural, affordable, skin loving products. My makeup and professional skincare services accent your natural beauty with education while not blowing your budget. Beauty in itself is letting yourself shine through; less is more. Pure, Natural, Everyday.
