Nancy Dawson

Owner. Founder. Lead Artist.

There are two questions that pop up constantly:

  1. What’s your favorite mascara?

  2. How did you get started doing makeup?


The obsession began around high school when I would use every last bit of my babysitting money to buy makeup and try to recreate the looks I found in the magazines.


Fast forward a few more years and I had the opportunity to train with celebrity artist, Laura Mercier on events in Chicago and New York. Um, hello. Dream job right there. I went on to study airbrush technique with Kett Cosmetics in NYC and became an esthetician.


In 2013, I launched one of my favorite business ventures to date –the FACEing cosmetics line. I poured my heart and soul into these products (but no sweat or tears–that would be gross). Talk about a pinch me moment!
