Beauty by Blair

Beauty by Blair

HipNJ’s Alex Lee spoke with New Jersey based make-up artist Blair Collier, of BLO Lounge in Livingston, NJ to learn how she turned her passion for beauty, into her career.

When it comes to make-up artistry, Blair’s talent knows no bounds. Whether you need full glam for a wedding or Bat Mitzvah, or just to get camera ready for an engagement or maternity shoot, Blair will make sure you put your best face forward.

Where others might feel overwhelmed, Blair thrives on high energy situations, loving the hustle and bustle of a Bridal Suite Make-up Session.

Blair’s talent and dedication have been years in the making. She recalls that even from a young age, she was intrigued by her mother’s make-up routine. Recently, with the support of her family, she took her love of make-up artistry to the next level, getting certified at Artist and Makeup Academy (AMA) in Hoboken, NJ. “Finally, I did something for me…I love it and I wouldn’t turn back!”

When asked what the future holds, Blair is motivated and optimistic. She sees herself growing, with more clients and social media followers.

If you have a special event and want to look and feel your best, Blair can be found on Instagram at @BeautyByBlair_BBB.
