For Holly, enhancing beauty isn’t just a career choice, it’s a passion and a calling.
With over 20 years of styling and makeup artistry experience, Holly’s dedication to her craft has earned her opportunities to work at some of the beauty industry’s most prestigious events.
Her ability to perfectly tailor makeup and hair to the individual and occasion, as well as her accomplishments, are the result of many countless hours of applying her trade. Nothing was ever given to her; she had to earn it every step of the way.
Holly began her professional career working at a counter for Lancôme while pursuing her bachelor’s degree.
Despite working full time and attending college full time, she was promoted to counter manager and subsequently asked to open numerous Lancôme counters across Southern California.
Her strong work ethic and dedication eventually caught the attention of MAC Cosmetics.
“Beauty comes from within and makeup is a way to express what one feels inside.”Holly Hughes, Lu Ross Academy Make-Up Artist Instructor
