Courtney Allen is a Chicago based makeup artist and licensed esthetician. She found her inspiration at the age of twelve assisting hairstylists at local salons. Spending a short time in corporate america after graduating from the University of Minnesota with her B.S., she realized working in the beauty industry was the best way for her to reach her highest potential and positively impact those around her. Her artistic talents flourished during her employment with beauty tycoon M.A.C Cosmetics,  and even further as she freelanced for Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier.

An unyielding desire to be the best beauty professional motivated Courtney to refine her skills and increase her knowledge to become a licensed esthetician.
