As an observer and educator, I’m frequently asked about the optimal moment to introduce makeup as a beauty routine (excluding dance or theater) to young girls.

I’ve discovered that middle school is a wonderful opportunity for a young girl’s first private makeup lesson. The transition from elementary school to middle school creates a near-universal increase in anxiety, stress, and discomfort. Exploring presentation through makeup in middle school can encourage students to be more confident, learn self-reliance, and feel more independent, especially as they venture beyond the orbit of their parents.

Ages 12-13 are such pivotal chapters in a young woman’s life where she begins to explore her identity and express herself in new ways. Much like exploring job pathways in these malleable years, students can better align their education and identity with their careers.

I often find myself wishing that private makeup lessons were available when I was in middle school. Having someone who wasn’t directly involved in shaping my social identity look me in the eyes, truly see me, and help me navigate understanding and expressing myself would have been invaluable.

F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry understands that every woman is unique and deserves uninterrupted services done by an accredited professional. Artist/Owner, Erin Hendley, prioritizes her clients with undivided attention and zero distractions. This mantra is so important to Erin, there are no other employees, and therefore, no other clients receiving services at the same time. Discretion and privacy are imperative for a relaxing beauty experience. This is why F.A.C.E. offers makeup services and in-studio product shopping by appointment only.




Thank You for booking with F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry. We acknowledge “life happens” (sickness, accident, 3rd party cancellation or date/timeline change, weather) and appointments need to be cancelled or rescheduled. Due to seasonality, time-slot sensitivity and working by appointment-only, we carry a mutually accountable cancellation/reschedule policy: Customer may cancel appointment at any time however, payments are nonrefundable/nontransferable, as a specific time-slot has been reserved and F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry did not make other reservations or accept other clients for this specific date and time. For this reason, in the event of cancellation/reschedule by client, all monies will be retained by F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry to offset its loss of business. If a booking is cancelled/rescheduled by F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry, complete payment will be refunded, and a “service equivalent” credit will be issued to customer.

*Moving an appointment to a different time-slot is a reschedule. Reschedules are cancellations of the original reservation and therefore, require new payment for a new appointment time-slot.
