About Us

E. Scott Thompson

I have worked as a makeup artist in Asheville since my move from San Diego in 2004.
I have had the good fortune to work with the best art directors, models, actors, photographers, video & film crews, hair stylists…and wedding planners from here and all over the country. My brides have come from around the globe to get married in the beautiful city of Asheville. I am so proud of my team and what we continue to create in our small town.

Serenity Eyre

Serenity began her love affair with makeup in London in the early 1980s. By the mid-90s she was a cosmetics manager for Christian Dior. Over the last 16 years she has worked as a makeup artist for many of the luxury brands. Having recently moved back to Asheville from NYC she was thrilled to discover that Makeup at the Grove Arcade had opened and is very happy to be part of our team. She loves the transformative nature of makeup.  Click here or on her photo to see Serenity’s online portfolio.

Zack Russell

Zack began his carreer with us as anaprentice and quickly proved to be an amazing talent.
He is a licensed esthetician and our airbrush specialist. That coupled with his talent as a painter and photographer explains his eye for color and style. He learned theatre makeup at a young age as a child actor. He has become a successful stage makeup designer for our local theatres. He is a self professed “tool dude” and believes it’s the brush as much as the makeup that helps to create a beautiful face.

Ben Crofoot & Terry Ayoub

We call them “the Husbands”. Ben is our IT guy. He and Terry are in the shop whenever we have a need. Most helpful in our Men’s Department, they are also our star cashiers. Both are our behind the scenes rock stars…just don’t ask for a make-over from either!
