Don’t go naked, go nude!

Don’t go naked, go NUDE!
What’s the difference?
The naked look is fine,if you’re a runway model. But the naked,natural look often just makes us regular people look dull.

Our Fall Look ’17 – NUDE (but not naked!)

Nude however, now that’s a whole range of colors. From the softest pink and heather grey, to deep purple.

Let us show you how easy it is to pull off  the Nude look, with a Fall Update Lesson that’s customized to your personal style. See which eye-shadows look just right, why blush isn’t always pink, and just how interesting a nude lip color can look.
Our makeup artist Sarah created and models our Fall Trend Nude look above. The colors are nude, but not beige or washed out. Sarah compliments her dark taupe indelible eye-shadow ($16) with Navajo brown accent color ($16). Both are matte. Her lips look cool in Hollywood Lipstick $15, cheeks are soft with vintage peach bare minerals $20 blush. Foundation and concealer are customized to each clients needs.

The most confident girl in the room

Confidence – It comes from within.
A well deserved, hard earned belief in your own ability to succeed.
No one hands it to you, you work for it.
Some people wear their confidence inside and out.
A single glance tells the world, “I’m a rock star”.
Confidence is choosing the bright lip color,
or simply adding a wing to your eyeliner.
Confidence is owning your look.

At Camellia Cosmetics, we believe in custom looks.

We listen to what you love, and what you don’t love.
Then we show you what is possible.

Have the confidence to own your look!

Our goal was to create a Rock Star look for Jarynn. Here is what she had to say about her look.
 “I loved how Rebecca made my eyes pop with smokey eye shadow and a touch of purple and thick lashes. The pink lip finished the look and made me feel so pretty! Hoosier Star here I come!”

About our Model:

Our stunning model Racheal Hamilton-Fras knows a thing or two about beauty, but as the owner of Racheal’s Hair Studio, she is usually at the provider end of the equation. Makeup artist Sarah Tokar created this look for Racheals maternity photo shoot. Key products include: Camellia Luminous Foundation in Tender Beige $30, Bare Minerals Sheer Bronzer in Medium $28, Mary Lou Highlighter $24, and lashes (of course!) $15. Take a peek at Racheal’s hair studio page, she is amazing in every way.

How to look great at work, all day long.

We know what you need, even if you don’t!

You leave the house feeling confident, only to find your makeup isn’t along for the ride. You arrive at work faded and before you even open an email, you have to touch up.

Faded, spotty, or smudged makeup simply doesn’t represent you, or go to work when you go to work. We don’t think that’s fair. Promises were made, but not kept. The ad, company, and salesperson all made you believe that this makeup was going to do the job.

This is why we do things differently at Camellia Cosmetics. Makeup is going to last, and it’s going to be perfect for you. You may not know what you  need, but we know the questions to ask so we can focus on fixing the problems, and show you where to have fun with it!

If you know you need to update your look, but you are not sure how, don’t leave your beauty in the hands of just anyone! Trust the skilled and friendly makeup artists at Camellia Cosmetics, the makeup lesson people.

Skin Solutions

So many of us suffer from skin issues. You may have any one or even many of the following concerns:

  • Redness
  • Dryness
  • Blemishes
  • Large Pores
  • Oily Skin
  • Uneven Splotches

Amy Kintzele radiates with minimal makeup: let us help you get healthy skin too!


This week at Camellia Cosmetics, we are putting the spotlight on skin. We know it’s at the core of all your makeup concerns, and we want to help you make the most of the skin you’re in! Here are some of the tailored help we can offer when you stop in to talk skin with us:

  • Help you build a daily customized regimen to care for your skin.
  • Help you understand how to apply and use skin-care products.
  • Help you learn how to cover up variations in skin color (blotchiness, red patches, scars, etc.).
  • Help you learn how to use your existing products and buy the right products to better care for your skin.
  • Help you apply cosmetics in such a way to enhance your skin’s vibrancy and texture (i.e., learn how to combat the caked-on look for dry skin types and vice versa to avoid foundation melting for oily skin types).



Amy Clark has that glow to her skin too! Come learn about the Camellia solutions to your skin concerns!


Our Mario Badescu product line is amazing. Let us guide you through selecting the right products customized to your skin type!

Say Goodbye to Blah Face!

Winter blues aren’t limited to just your mood. Grey skies and extra time indoors because of the cold lead to both a lack of vitamin D and inevitably “blah face.”  Your summer tan has long since faded and the winter blues can leave you feeling less than excited to get dolled up and go out. However, we believe that combating that blah face and amping up your makeup routine this time of year is EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED to help you feel better inside and out!

Being the “Makeup Lesson People” means that we know just what to do to help you combat your blah feeling and blah face. Stop into Camellia Cosmetics this week and we will teach you how to take back your routine and be your own sunshine! From a little bronzer and contouring to the right pop of lipstick color — we know just what to do to get you feeling sparkly!

Teen Week at Camellia

It’s TEEN WEEK at Camellia Cosmetics. We are so excited to dedicate a whole week to helping our youngest customers blossom in 2017! Moms often come to us asking for help in guiding their teen daughters’ makeup know-how and routines. Whether mom and daughter are hitting heads on how much eye makeup to wear or they just don’t know where to start…we are here to help!

Teens need routines that are quick (getting up for school is already early enough, need we say more?), easy to master, age/event appropriate, and affordable. At Camellia Cosmetics, here is how we can help your teen daughter:

  1. We can help her learn a quick and easy routine: Routines that are easy to remember will get implemented. Let us help her feel confident in applying the basics and teach her a few quick tricks too!
  2. We can customize her makeup lesson to her lifestyle: Does she need waterproof mascara because of sports? Does she need makeup to combat oily skin or blemishes? We will customize her makeup lesson and routine to her needs.
  3. We can create an age- and event-appropriate look for her: We will teach your teen how to apply makeup for school or sports, but how to take it up a notch for Friday night or a school dance. Mom will be happy too!
  4. We can put together a routine and corresponding product list that is affordable. Teen makeup is usually less expensive. Without age spots, fine lines, and eye circles, we can put together a short but dynamic list that will make her makeup bag complete and fun!
  5. We can book professional makeup appointments for her senior pictures or prom!

Ring in 2017 Looking More GLAM Than Ever

Let us help you get Shaina’s glowing and accentuated cheek bones.

2016 is drawing to a close. And this Saturday night when the clock strikes twelve, 2017 will burst forth with all its promise and potential. It’s not too late to start the new year off with a fresh and extra glamorous look. You can still book online with us this week for one of our many services. For example, book a makeup lesson for this week, and we can teach you some innovative and personalized makeup tricks that can be used not only for Saturday night parties but all year long as well. Or book for Saturday (we’re open on NYE from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) for a professional makeup appointment or lash service.

And while we’re all about helping you master that everyday, office-appropriate look, we have to admit we get a little giddy over the extra drama, sparkle, and shine that New Year’s Eve makeup offers. This past week, model Shaina Poland was in our studio, and we had a blast creating these red-carpet worthy looks. Here’s some makeup inspiration for your weekend festivities:


A bold red lip is perfect for event makeup and stands out from across the room as well as in pictures!


Or soften up the lip color and focus instead on bold eyes, lashes, and highlights.
