Mac, Covergirl, Bobbie Brown - if you're a woman, you know those are all well-known makeup lines that have been around for years.
There's a new makeup line set to roll out very soon. It was created by a local makeup artist, who we here at NewsChannel 13 know very well.
In fact, Alayne Curtiss has kept the ladies from the evening newscasts to the morning show at NewsChannel 13 camera ready for years.
Before Curtiss became a makeup artist, she was actually a hairstylist starting in high school, but she was on a mission.
After beauty school and a marketing degree, she opened her own salon - Make Me Fabulous in Ballston Spa, and did makeup for talent in commercials and movies.
Her next goal is bridal makeup. Four years ago, she decided to create her own makeup line for brides. It was daunting.
That lesson would come in handy when she says she was falsely connected to the former cult NXIVM because she would do the hair of some of the women associated with the group.
However, she stayed the course, moved her salon to Saratoga Springs, and is now about to launch her new bridal beauty makeup boxes online.
She had dreamed of one day having her name alongside big makeup lines like Mac and Bobbie Brown.
See some of her products, by watching the video of Elaine Houston's story.
