The Vanilla Room is always on the lookout for the freshest young hair & beauty talent. So, when one of our young Saturday hostesses launched Grace Lee Make Up last year we were keen to support her.
Now, every Saturday an area of The Vanilla Room will transform into Grace’s Pop-Up Studio, with festival, wedding, party and event make up by the inspiring beauty talent Grace Lee.
The studio will provide the ideal environment for professional make-up, with tailored features for busy clients including online booking and a speedy Just Eye service. From dramatic contours to bold lips her innovative makeup techniques and professional products transform clients into CoverGirls.
Grace Lee says, “I’ve always dreamed of being a professional make-up artist, it’s a hard industry to get your first break in, so I decided to try for myself. I created a small at home studio, launched my You Tube channel and Instagram feed last August when I was 16. I posted some tutorial videos and client before and afters and things just snowballed! Having my own pop up studio at The Vanilla Room is incredible and the perfect platform for me to collaborate with other hair and beauty professionals, work hard, stay inspired, and explore all the possibilities for growing as a make-up artist.”
In fact, social media images will drive some of the looks offered, which include à la carte services like Just Eyes or Entire Face, which could mean contoured cheeks, skin finishing and nude lips.
Grace Lee Make-Up will be available in the salon between 9am and 5.30pm on Saturdays. Priced at £30 for a full face or £15 for just eyes.
