“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!”

Megan Nicoll – Local 706 Makeup Artist

“I haven’t found a beauty blog like The Makeup Refinery before.
It’s very honest, well researched and well rounded. And of course, backed by the many years of experience you have as a professional makeup artist.”

Melissa Jimenez – Makeup Artist
