'Tracilee and Gemma were professional, educational and FUN'
“My daughter and I absolutely loved our mom and me makeup party. Having a teenager, I wanted her to learn about makeup, but I knew it wasn’t going to come from me. Tracilee and Gemma were professional, educational & FUN. My daughter still follows the Basic Beauty Blog to this day. It was one of the best events that we have shared as mother and daughter.”
'Whether seeking expert make-up or skincare advice for myself or our clients, Tracilee is top of mind'
“Whether seeking expert make-up or skincare advice for myself or our clients, Tracilee is top of mind. She is professional, pleasant and has deep product knowledge across brands as well as well-honed make-up application skills. Make-up is applied flawlessly and you leave each session with her armed with a list of products to consider adding to your own skincare and make-up regimen that have direct relevance to how you live, work and play. Some of these gems can be found at your local drugstore, others at higher-end stores and websites. All are thoughtfully considered and genuinely recommended. Your skincare needs are in good hands with Tracilee and she is a lot of fun to boot!”
