About Us

E. Scott Thompson – Founder/Owner

Scott Thompson has worked as a makeup artist in Asheville since his move from San Diego in 2004. Needing a home base he opened Makeup at The Grove Arcade in December of 2009. He has 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. His brides have come from around the globe to get married in the beautiful city of Asheville. He is so proud of his team and what they continue to create in our small town.

Serenity Eyre – Owner

Serenity began her love affair with makeup, and the transformative nature of it, 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 moved back to Asheville from NYC she was thrilled to discover Makeup at the Grove Arcade. Partnering with Scott in 2011 they expanded Makeup at the Grove Arcade. Shortly after expanding, their love of makeup took them into creating Serenty+Scott Beauty.  Click here or on her photo to see Serenity’s online portfolio.

Zack Russell – General Manager/Senior Makeup Artist

He is a graduated esthetician and our airbrush specialist. That coupled with his talent as a painter and photographer explains his eye for color and style. He learned theater makeup at a young age as a child actor. 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.

Wendy Tipton – Makeup Artist

We are so happy to have Wendy with us again! Her passion and love for the beauty/skin care industry began over 20 years ago. Her experience through the years includes working extensively and training with many prestigious makeup and skincare lines. Her philosophy as an artist is to bring the best you forward leaving you feeling comfortable and radiant.

Heather Smith – Makeup Artist

We are proud to enter 2015 with Heather as a part of our team. She is available for weddings and commercial work. Heather, an Asheville native, began her professional career in the beauty industry in 2009.  Leaving a 14-year history in corporate and retail sales behind, she began working for a salon performing nail services, makeup services for bridal parties, fashion events, and later esthetics services.  Makeup, for her, is a unique way to express individuality, enhance unique features and boost self-confidence.
