The Face of F.A.C.E.


Meet Erin Hendley

Growing up, Erin was always curious about people, fascinated with color, and infatuated with presentation. Before being able to articulate it, Erin understood that every person had their own unique combination to unlock their inner beauty.

In between semesters of college, Erin enrolled in Makeup School in Chicago, IL. This education was the perfect pairing with her Fashion Merchandising degree when she moved to NYC to polish her career experience.

Erin has done makeup on-site for Allure & Glamour magazines, New York Fashion Week and celebrities including Jason SudeikisIlana Glazer and Kyle MacLachlan. However, the accomplishment she is most proud of is collaborating with “everyday people” in a space that leaves guests in awe of their surroundings and of themselves.

Inspired by durability and craftsmanship of beauty packaging from decades ago, F.A.C.E. sources period compacts and modifies their interiors to house new, refillable products. The “beauty blend” of the cosmetic past (compact vessel) with the present (modern product) creates a lasting keepsake & art piece to accompany in the future. Clients enjoy the experience of selecting first, the unique compact, and then choosing the eye, cheek or face powder color combination it will house. The refurbished vintage makeup compacts retailed at F.A.C.E. are unique and beautiful, and include a miniature story inspired by each individual vessel. The compacts become quite serendipitous. People find them at just the right time depending on what story they need to hear, what message they need to receive, or what lesson they need to learn. Beauty is art.
