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 !

Kerrin - I haven’t found a beauty blog like yours before! Your blog is very honest, very well researched and well rounded, plus of course, backed by the multiple years of experience you have as a makeup artist.
