Whether you’re trying to look your best for a special occasion or simply want a fresh, polished look for the new year, there’s no denying that having a professional makeup artist on your side makes a world of difference! Local expert Rhea McCarter Craft at Adore Makeup Boutique & Salon, recently helped the Do512 Family team achieve our best beauty looks for a formal party, and we simply had the best experience — and felt beautiful!

Adore, located on Bee Cave Rd., is the local business of Rhea, who was just voted Austin’s Best Makeup Artist in Austin Monthly’s “Best of the City” issue. At Adore you can get your makeup done for special occasions, weddings, or just because. Rhea also specializes in makeup lessons, classes, and brows. Her boutique offers Glo Minerals, The Balm Cosmetics, Jentry Kelley Cosmetics, Japonesque brushes, Benjamin Soap Co.,  Milk Moon Jewelry and Moroccan Oil ; just to name a few.

When we first stepped into Adore, we were immediately welcomed by Rhea and her warm, friendly personality. She asked a few questions about our makeup desires but had terrific instincts about what would look best for each of us. Having never gotten my makeup done professionally before, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. It was such a fun treat. Rhea did a beautiful job!

Not only did we feel very fabulous and confident at our holiday party, we also danced the night away and our makeup stayed gorgeous ’til the wee hours of the morning. We definitely plan to book appointments with Rhea for any future special occasions.
