The idea behind Blushington came to Stephi when she realized there just wasn't a great place in LA to get her makeup done. So she decided to create one that was affordable and convenient, that also offered more natural looking makeup applied by super talented makeup artists. Having worked in the couture fashion world, with some PR and marketing experience, Stephi knew exactly what it would take to create something truly unique. She pulled together the ultimate dream team, and Blushington was on it's way.

Allison has the unique ability to combine her keen sense of business with her creative talents. We're lucky to have her.
