Liz Wilson, Owner & Founder
My name is Liz Wilson and I’m a licensed esthetician and event makeup artist. I’ve worked in the beauty industry since 2006, starting my career in beauty sales for Estée Lauder and Victoria’s Secret, then moving on to work as a professional esthetician and makeup artist within several local skincare businesses in Humboldt County, CA.
In 2016 I decided to open my own studio in old town Eureka, California where I take skincare and makeup clients. I’m fortunate enough to have my sister working with me, and absolutely love our small-town Northern California community.
As a working makeup artist who values high-quality cosmetics and skincare, I noticed a lack of available and inclusive options at local boutiques, and a lack of knowledge and service when shopping at large chains. My newest dream has been to bring high-end makeup and skincare options to Humboldt County in a small boutique setting, so you can choose to shop small and local without compromising personalized and professional service, options and convenience.
I’ve never stopped growing and learning within this industry, and there’s nothing more exciting to me than sharing beauty with my community.
See you soon,
XX - Liz
Christina Brown, Licensed Esthetician / Makeup Artist
Rucinda Tu, Licensed Esthetician / Makeup Artist
Hi Lovelies! My name is Rucinda Tu, the newest licensed esthetician to join the II Beauties team. Originally from Orange, California, I moved to Humboldt in 2002. In my early years, I worked at Victoria’s Secret where I discovered that I loved helping people; more specifically, helping women feel confident about themselves and their bodies. I later joined a medical office where I got to know each and every patient as part of creating their individualized treatment plans. My experience in two very different fields has shown me that common denominator and the part I loved the most was connecting with people while encouraging them, assisting with their self-care, and seeing their improved quality of life. I saw the same parallels in esthetics. I want to empower and support individuals in what beauty means to them.
Due to the pandemic, the journey has taken a little longer than I planned. Having Liz and Christina as such fabulous mentors, I am now ready and eager to pamper you, help rejuvenate your skin, nurture your body positivity, all while helping you feel revitalized. I want your soul to shine! I truly look forward to getting to know you. See you in the shop!
