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.
Having graduated from Stanford Business School, with ten years of Merchandising, Marketing and Business Development experience, we call Allison "the business behind the beauty." She's worked at Coach, Martha Stewart, Trina Turk and Sotheby's (so she knows a thing or two about growing big brands) and most recently worked with Serena & Lily and Modern-Twist on Marketing and Business Development projects. Allison has the unique ability to combine her keen sense of business with her creative talents. We're lucky to have her.
