Thumbtack Spotlight

Glow! Beauty Studio

(10 reviews)

Passion, knowledge, and communication are what set Stephanie apart from others in the industry. She always makes sure that the client understands the how and why of each treatment and service because she believes that beauty is both an art and a science.

What do you love about your job?

I'm a caretaker and a problem solver. I love pampering people, while helping them look and feel their best. Life is so hectic these day; for many of my clients, their time with me is the only downtime they get, so I strive to make every second in my treatment room count. My clients leave feeling refreshed and renewed and looking fabulous.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My primary inspiration in starting my own business was a desire to do the right thing. I wanted the freedom to do what's best for my clients in every situation. I wanted to have the autonomy to treat each client the way I want to be treated. As an individual. Working for myself has allowed to create a very personal boutique experience for my clients.

  1. #1 Makeup by Aline

    (73 reviews)

    Thomasine D.

    Aline did my make-up, my niece's make-up and my daughter's make-up for my daughter's Sweet 16 Red Carpet Event. Not only is Aline very professional and attentive, she also did the most FABULOUS job applying our make-up. I usually don't wear make-up but I felt like a million bucks once I looked in the mirror!! My son even said WOW....mom is that really you!! My niece and daughter were absolutely thrilled with their make-up also and that is saying a lot for 2 teenagers who are used to applying their own make-up daily. My daughter didn't even want the night to end because she didn't want to take her make-up off. Great Job Aline! We will be contacting you for our next special occasion!!!

  3. #3 It's More Than Just Lipstick

    (17 reviews)

    Katrese E.

    First I would just like to send another thank you to Chassity Bynum of "It's More Than Just Lipstick". Her expertise in makeup helped me achieve a flawless look for my wedding day and had my now husband speechless as I walked down the aisle to him. I normally do not wear a lot of makeup from day to day so my concern was that I could get dolled up for my big day without looking cluttered with makeup. Chassity achieved just that applying makeup that gave me a very glamorous look while a fresh and natural look as well. Her pricing was very good and I booked her to come out to our wedding location and apply makeup for all of my four bridesmaids and maid of honor. Each of these ladies had different skin tones but she had all of them looking gorgeous. I did not get one complaint from any of the ladies about their makeup application, they all loved it!! I too loved their looks including my own. Chassity's personality matches her work....beautiful. She was willing to come out twice for me to conduct a paid consultation to ensure I would have the look I wanted for my wedding day. I could not have found a better makeup artist. Ladies with Chassity your in good hands no matter what the occasion she will have you covered, blemishes and all and definitely help you achieve a flawless you.

    Carla Rhines of Sweet BEATS demonstrated high expertise in contouring make-up and facial highlighting. She displayed concern for delivering exemplary service. Not only did she possess a pleasant and welcoming demeanor, she was cost-effective and reliable (came to home for added convenience). Impressively, Carla Rhines was fast applying make-up and, at the same time, ability to give great care to magnifying beauty. Her attention to make-up color for creating prettier eyes, knowing exactly which color to use to enhance the appeal of eyes is amazing. Carla Rhines transformed my look to stunningly gorgeous.
