Good news: Hockessin has just gotten a lot more colorful.
Thanks to Natalie Ruelle, the charming and energetic makeup artist who has just set up her new shop, MIX Makeup Studio, www.mixmakeupstudio.com, in Shoppes of Hockessin. (It’s located in Sanity’s old spot.)
After having worked in the makeup industry for many years in both L.A. and Chicago, Natalie was inspired to turn her new space into a studio full of old Hollywood glamour and is all set up to do makeup applications for special events, waxing and even the latest trend—eyelash extensions.
But the neatest thing about MIX is that is that its main focus is all about creating custom blended lipstick.
What? There is somewhere to go to get lipstick that is made especially for you?
An expert in her field, Natalie has spent the last three years perfecting how to mix custom colored lipstick or lip gloss.
During a half-hour session, Natalie measures and melts, mashes and mixes, adding a dab more of this color or that color until you have your very own special concoction that you’ve helped create. (In a nutshell, it’s a colorful version of Cold Stone Creamery for your lips.)
After playing with and testing the color, she pours your creation into a mold and out comes your very own, personalized lipstick. It’s so cool!
So that you don’t feel overwhelmed, Natalie just so happens to have worked for Estée Lauder for over 10 years, so you can feel confident that she will help guide you to choose what color is most flattering on you.
Have an old lipstick nub from a favorite color that has been long discontinued? Just can’t seem to find the perfect shade to go with that sweater? At MIX, you can match!
And the best part is you even get to name your own color, so come prepared—lipstick shopping has never been this much fun.
So if you have the urge to tap into your creative side, or need a gift for the person who has everything, go check out MIX!
