The Make-up Studio’s Teen Makeup Lesson

Have you been looking for a way to get your teen on the right track with her makeup? Or is she simply just starting out?? At The Make-up Studio, we offer a 90-minute lesson that is designed for the 12-16 year old needing makeup instruction for a clean, natural approach to makeup. Professional makeup artist, Julie Farley will cover everything from basic skincare, makeup product knowledge to simple makeup techniques and tips that your teen can achieve easily!




Skin CareDSC01731

Since your makeup only looks as good as your skin, it’s important to stress good skin care at an age when blemishes first start to appear. Julie will briefly discuss skin care routines with your teen and then introduce them to a moisturizer.



Many young girls don’t need a heavy foundation! Julie will either recommend a tinted moisturizer – which is very light in coverage – or a mineral foundation if your teen struggles with blemishes. With learning about foundation, comes the importance of tools! At The Make-up Studio, we love blending out our foundation with the BeautyBlender Sponge.






The next step that Julie will address with your teen is concealer. Some young girls, depending on their skin, will need a concealer to help cover acne and/or blemishes. Other teens may need an under eye concealer to counteract dark circles. This may or may not be a step that your daughter is ready to do but it always helps to have the knowledge!



Nothing brightens the face like a little bit of blush! Most young girls might be a bit nervous about applying blush but knowing what color blush works with their skin tone and how to use it is helpful for future years.




Eye ShadowDSC01850

Next up, eye shadow! A lot of young girls only want to wear eye shadow when they’re going to the movies with their friends or attending a school dance. However, there are teens who like wearing a light shimmer on their eyes for day-to-day wear. Either way, Julie shows them the basics!


Lip Gloss

Now it’s time for the finishing touch — adding some lip color! Some teens are making the jump from lip gloss to lipstick (as that is the latest trend) but a lot of girls stick with a tried-and-true lip gloss. Julie always makes sure that she finds a lip color that your teen will feel comfortable in!

How to choose the right brow product

Brows are all the rage these days! Everywhere you look, people are obsessed with having PERFECT brows. However, no two eyebrows are the same which also means your brows may not look like the ones you see on Pinterest. But don’t worry –  that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own version of perfect brows!!


Of course, you should start with shaped, groomed brows (we’d recommend seeing an aesthetician for this). Then comes time to select a brow product and you realize there’s a ton of different ones to choose from! There’s brow pencils, pens, powders, pomades AND mousses… whoa. Where do you even start? Well, it comes down to personal preference and what kind of brow you have. Take a look:

Brow Pencils/Pens

Brow pencils and brow pens work great for defining your eyebrows naturally or filling in sparse areas.  We’d recommend the Senna Sketch-A-Brow Pencil, or Senna Powder Brow Styling Pencil

Brow Mousses

If your eyebrows tend to be a little “unruly” and need just a little bit of color, then a brow mousse would be perfect for you! We love the Blinc Brow Mousse.



If you still have further questions about which type of brow product would work best for you, give us a call and we’ll schedule an appointment! (509) 455-7430

We love INGLOT Cosmetics

It has now been a couple years since we’ve started carrying INGLOT Cosmetics and introduced it to our customers. Everyone has LOVED it! There are lip paints with fabulous pigment, eyeliners that you can’t have just one of and eye shadows that have been flying off our shelves. If you haven’t had the chance to swing by and check out the makeup line, let us present INGLOT Cosmetics!

The Brand


Wojtek Inglot, a Polish chemist who specialized in color cosmetics, created the INGLOT makeup line over 25 years ago. His main objective was to produce high-quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers.

The Products

Freedom System

The innovative Freedom System is a makeup lover’s dream, allowing you to design a never-ending variety of palettes with whatever shades and textures you want. You can create palettes from one up to forty different eye shadows! All of the INGLOT Cosmetics Freedom System Eye Shadows are highly pigmented, long lasting and crease resistant. A ton of our customers have come back in when they realize they didn’t purchase a big enough palette to begin with!


Soft Precision Eyeliner

inglot-soft-precision-eyelinersIf you thought you loved the Freedom System Eye Shadows, wait until you’ve tried the Soft Precision Eyeliners! These eyeliners are soft enough for blending – thanks to jojoba oil – but precise enough for a fabulous application. One of these eyeliners simply won’t be enough… we promise!


Face Blush

inglot-face-blushThe beautiful powder Face Blush from INGLOT Cosmetics has a rich formula that allows for a smooth application and buildable color. Vitamin E, sponge gourd oil and treated pigments allow this very fine textured blush to blend and adhere to all skin types to enhance the natural glow of the face.


Full Metal Lip Liner

If you’re in the market for the perfect lip liner, then look no further! The INGLOT Cosmetics Full Metal Lip Liner is definitely a customer favorite at The Make-up Studio. Shea butter gives a soft and precise line with intense color while propelling lip liner and lip brush on opposite ends makes for easy application of liner and lipstick or lip gloss.

How to add youth to your makeup routine

Does your makeup routine feel a little dull? Is it having a midlife crisis?? Well then, it’s time to liven things up a bit! The best way to add some life and youth to your makeup is to use some pinks and peaches.


Women who are older tend to wear more browns because they think it’s neutral but simply put, browns bring you down! Many women forget how flattering  and youthful pinks and peaches can be.

Application Tips

  • Apply pink/peach blushes to the apples of your cheeks when you smile
  • Using pinks on the lips – with lip liner applied strategically – can also compensate for volume loss

Our Best-Selling Product… the Senna Silky Face Primer!


If we had to peg a best-selling product at The Make-up Studio, it would have to be the Senna Silky Primer! This face primer simply flies off our shelves!!

The Product

The Senna Silky Primer is great for all skin types – oily, dry, young, mature – and works with all foundations. This silky, sheer, oil free formula makes your skin smooth like a baby’s!

The Senna Silky Primer also helps increase the staying power of your makeup which will save you many a touch-up!!

Julie Farley of The Make-up Studio says “I wouldn’t even put on foundation without having applied the Senna Silky Primer first.”


Application Tips

  • Don’t forget to really shake the tube before each use!
  • Apply a “pea size” amount to your face and neck after moisturizer and before foundation.
  • You can use your fingers to apply the face primer
