Chloe was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. She is known as the “Brow Wizard”. She graduated from the Academy of Massage and Bodywork’s Advanced Medical Aesthetics program in July 2018. Chloe specializes but is not limited to brow design and makeup artistry. She started playing around with makeup as a hobby in middle school where it soon became a passion. She then began taking clients in high school. She is 100% self-taught and is always practicing in her free time. Makeup is what introduced her to her love of the beauty industry. Chloe says that her favorite thing about the beauty industry is that there is always something new to learn. She is passionate about producing great results that keep her clients looking and feeling their best. Eventually, Chloe would love to learn permanent makeup and go back to school for nursing to further her career in cosmetics and esthetics. I would also love to learn how to thread brows. Her favorite quote is “pretty is what you are, beauty is what you do with it.” The best beauty tip that Chloe can give is to always take your makeup off before bed no matter how long your day has been or how tired you are. It makes such a difference in your overall skin health. Also wearing SPF daily is very important!!!! It is the best way to slow down the aging process. Her holy grail skin care product is a chemical exfoliant. The glycolic crème from A Natural Difference is my personal favorite.
