Erin Hendley

Erin Hendley is a local Makeup Artist whose work is focused on enhancing the human canvas. 

Inspired by durability and craftsmanship of beauty packaging from decades ago, F.A.C.E. Makeup Artistry sources period compacts and modifies their interiors to house new, refillable products. The “beauty blend” of the cosmetic past (compact vessel) with the present (modern product) creates a lasting keepsake & art piece to accompany in the future. Clients enjoy the experience of selecting first, the unique compact, and then choosing the eye, cheek or face powder color combination it will house.

The refurbished vintage makeup compacts retailed at F.A.C.E. are unique and beautiful in and of themselves, but the miniature write-ups inspired by each individual vessel adds an additional element of wonder. The compacts become quite serendipitous. People find them at just the right time depending on what story they need to hear, what message they need to receive, or what lesson they need to learn. Beauty is art.  

The compacts are containers with a fresh twist on history, spanning space and time. They cast a vote towards sustainability and personalization.
