“I really enjoy The Makeup Refinery. It’s so nice seeing our craft approached so thoughtfully, intellectually and from the approach of a film & television makeup artist, versus a lot of what is published about makeup – it usually skews editorial or for the average makeup user. So nice to have this outlet and you do it so well!”

“I haven’t found a beauty blog like The Makeup Refinery before.

It’s very honest, well researched and well rounded (I laughed a lot reading the turtle story!) plus of course backed by the multiple years of experience you have as a makeup artist.”
