We decided to do a last minute soft launch party to kick off the studio – there is so much to be done still but we figured a celebration was in order for what we have accomplished so far:
First off I was so lucky to have Anna Maria Perez de Tagle and her brother King join me for the opening. She came right before show time for GODSPELL – this was such a honor and made the night start of extra special.
Here is our hair / makeup stylist Christine Valentin with Amy Sattler of ULTA trying all the awesome ULTA beauty goodies we are so lucky to have at the studio !
The ULTA cosmetic line is truly awesome – so many colors and the concealers are perfection.
Thank you @ULTA_Beauty for all your support ! Here is a photo of our makeup / hair stylist
