The Tremendously Talented artist/designer Lauren Luna had a Meet and Greet event at Qwashae Boutique in Pearland, Texas 7/21/12. I had the honor of doing Lauren Luna’s make up for this event. She’s such a beautiful lady.
Originally from Ohio, Lauren has been in the Houston area for a year now and boy am I glad she relocated. She’s so much fun to be around. She’s one of those people that you could literally just sit and talk to for hours and never get bored. She has a great spirit and aura about her that just exudes both creativity and positivity. Her work is both breath taking and inspiring.
I’ve been to Qwashae a few times now and I’ve always been in awe of the artwork there. It turns out that Lauren Luna is the artist behind those paintings.
I was blessed with the opportunity to be the makeup artist for this awesome event. This is me working with one of the lovely models Flor.
The dress that Micole is so effortlessly pulling off above was my favorite of the night. I’m going to have to go back and get it. This picture doesn’t do it justice. The color is somewhere between a bright coral and a hot pink…but it’s really not pink or coral. I know that sounds confusing but it’s unlike any other color I’ve seen. I love it!!
This is Model EmilyThis picture was a close up of Emily while she was modeling inside of the display case, hence the glare. I still felt it was a cool shot. This would’ve been a great shot had the sun not caused a glare. Oh well. Hopefully you can still see what I was trying to capture. This is the front view of the store.
It took me a while to try to come up with words to describe my thoughts and feelings about Qwashae Boutique. Honestly, I love EVERYTHING about this store. You get such a good vibe the minute you walk in. It’s an experience unlike any I’ve ever had before. When I asked the owner, Shakena, what Qwashae meant, she told me it was Happy in Greek. She wants her customers to feel happy when they walk in and happy when they walk out. I will testify that this has been my experience every time I’ve gone there. I’m a firm believer that customer service can either make or break your business. Well at Qwashae Boutique the owner and staff provide nothing but outstanding service.
