Elizabeth Quinton - Charleston Makeup Artist

Hi.

I am Elizabeth Quinton, the beauty-obsessed owner + makeup artist behind EQmakeup, an on-location pop-up beauty studio.

Yes, I have a pretty incredible job. I have the honor of teaching + sharing something that I love! But the truth is, my interactions are so much more than a makeup application. I get to share an energy + an experience with every face I touch. I am so lucky to be surrounded by an incredibly talented community including my friends + partners in the makeup + beauty industry, photographers, set designers + Charleston’s best wedding professionals.

You could say I was a bit of a dreamer. I always knew that my life would take me in a creative direction, but after exploring different options, I landed right where I was meant to be. My love for the world of makeup started long ago with my grandmothers. To this day, I can remember every step of their beauty rituals. + I can still picture my mom, applying her bright coral lips, courtesy of 1980’s Lancome, as she drove in her little red convertible. With me admiring from the back seat, I was always in awe of her precision without ever having to look in the mirror. It’s these classic moments + the glamour of a woman + her beauty routine, that started my love for this industry.

Starting my makeup career with MAC Cosmetics, almost 13 years ago, instilled a passion for continuing my education + always challenging myself to research + learn more. I am committed to these education opportunities + participate in some of the greatest hands-on classes offered in the United States. Recently, I had the honor of taking classes with some of the most admired artists today; Orlando Santiago, James Vincent + the Director of Global Artistry for NARS Cosmetics, James Boehmer. In just a couple of weeks, I will spend a week with The Powder Group in Provincetown for The Artist Summit. I am so grateful for these education opportunities + my outstanding friends, fellow artists + industry experts. It is a never-ending source of inspiration.

It is my privilege to share these experiences with you.

I currently live in Charleston, SC but am available for travel.

LOVE NOTES

BLOG

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

Let’s get this party started.

My very first blog post!  Eep!!  So very exciting.

The truth is, this site has been a long time coming.  I am a bit of a perfectionist + between that + a crazy schedule, it has taken much longer than I anticipated.  But, here we are.  + I can promise you, it’s going to be good.

Along with this site, there is a major brand re-launch happening behind the scenes.  I was hoping to share all the pretty, new things at once but I get so excited about every single thing that I put it out there as soon as it’s done!  So it will come in stages + I know  there will be edits + upgrades (that perfectionist thing again) but I am just too excited to not share.  I sincerely hope that this blog will continue to change as I learn about the things you want from your beauty resource.

+ I love a good surprise, so expect a few of those.

If you know me, you know that I have a vision for every single thing I do, big or small + this site is no exception.  I have been planning every little thing down to the perfect color of peach + my favorite font.  I hope you enjoy it + I ask you to please be patient as I continue to figure out the tech world + finish our re-launch project.

In the meantime, stay tuned!  We have great things coming your way.  Our first series is in the making.  We have bridal features galore thanks to my sweet + stunning brides + the amazingly talented wedding professionals I have the honor of working with.  I have some incredible guest artists + beauty experts that have so kindly agreed to contribute.  I am most excited about sharing what I  love – the latest beauty news + product reviews.  There really is so much more + I cannot wait to share!

I am still working hard on the next phase of this EQmakeup brand but would love to know — what do you want to see + hear from a beauty blog?
