The Be Beauty custom makeup studio is making a big move this week.
The studio is moving to a new location at 13 S. King St., next door to Black Hoof Brewery, in the old Caulkins Jewelry space. A formal ribbon-cutting celebration is planned June 2, as part of the downtown First Friday activities.
“The new location puts us at the center of where we want to be,” owner Christina Gatsby stated in a press release. “Downtown Leesburg is booming with new shops and restaurants and we bring something new and unique to the mix that is not currently offered downtown.”
Be Beauty first opened at Market Station back in 2015 and has since grown quite a following. Gatsby said her customers have become more concerned with product integrity and what’s in the items they are using. The studio uses only clean ingredients, she said, which contain no parabens, mineral oils or animal byproducts.
“Customization is also a big deal right now,” Gatsby added. “People love the fact that they have a local place that can custom blend their foundation or lip color and we strive to make everything as unique as each customer we serve.”
From makeup lessons, eye lash extensions, and air-brush tanning to newly added clothing and accessories, Gatsby said she’s looking forward to having more exposure. The new space will allow her to expand her services, she said, including waxing services, which should be available before the end of this year.
