Our beginnings……….

February 28, 2012 marked the beginning of a new chapter for owner Shelly Gehrt.  As I launched our tiny business of 1…..I had no idea of the growth that we would experience during this first year.  Hiring 5 freelancers to cover all the requests from our wonderful clients.


By November 2012 we realized our business had out grown our homes and our dreams of adding Cosmetic Services became a reality as I expanded into a Studio space in the end of November.  Most of December was filled with planning and designing the space.  January brought hours of painting and putting together furniture (I LOVE Ikea).  By the end of  March I had finished installing and stocking our Beauty Stations, held our Grand Opening and ribbon cutting with Mclean County Chamber and hosted 4 pilot Workshops.

I open and operated a Beauty & Arts Studio in Downtown Bloomington for 3 years.  I bring over 30 years of experience having worked as a Makeup Artist for Mary Kay, Clinique, Estee Lauder Company, State Farm and Freelance Bridal and Prom.

We still bring face painting, body painting and Henna to your location for Corporate Events, School Carnivals, Church events, Grand Openings, Birthday parties, Graduation parties, Block parties, high school – college and professional sporting events, All types of fundraisers, Festivals, ISU, IWU Bradley and Heartland events  …..(and the list goes on and on).

I have now have 8 face painters and 4 Henna Artists….all professionally trained and fully insured to meet all your event’s needs.
