For most women wearing makeup stems from an inward desire to not only look attractive and beautiful but to feel beautiful as well. Even though MAIR does a lot of scent designing and blending in France and other fragrant cities all over the world, Houston is our base and home. Today's post is a about spotlighting my personal favorite independent Houston makeup brands, helping women achieve both inner and outer beauty.

Have you ever asked a lady how long it took to do her full face of makeup and her response was a whopping two hours?! At Jentry Kelley not only can you learn to do apply your makeup for a flawless and effortless look, but they also teach you a quick eight step process to get that cute in the carpool look in less than half the time!

We can all agree that makeup is an art form right? So why not have original paintings and drawings on all your makeup compacts and accessories? Serge Sklona, is the founder of Artonit who took his passion for art, and experience in the beauty industry as a makeup artist into creating his own cruelty free international cosmetic line. He created and formulated his entire product line with a chemist to create beautiful and vibrant eyeshadows, bronzers, highlighters, blushes, and more. (See entire line here.)
