Liz Wilson, Owner & Founder

Hi Beauties!

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

Hi, everyone!

My name is Christina Brown. I've been a licensed Esthetician for six years. I grew up in a small town in Central California, and in 2010 I decided to move to Humboldt where I went to school for art. I realized that art (in that way) wasn't my passion, so I started focusing on the waitressing job I had at the time. One day I had a conversation with my sister about the possibility of beauty school after feeling completely lost and shortly thereafter, I enrolled. I immediately fell in love with body waxing and knew I had made the right decision. I graduated in 2016 and then for the next four years, worked both jobs until I took a leap of faith and quit my restaurant job during the lockdown of 2020. Aside from going to beauty school and moving to Humboldt, that was the best decision I have ever made.

Not only do I get to work alongside my sister, I get to empower my community through what I do. I believe that my ultimate goal goes beyond just waxing bodies and giving facials; I provide a space to aid clients in improving their overall wellness. I want to make sure that every client that walks into my treatment room leaves feeling liberated and confident.

Over the years, I've discovered that my clients give back to me just as much as I give to them. I feel honored to not only work on but build relationships with such cool people and I leave my treatment room every day feeling fulfilled and uplifted.

My treatment room is built on the principles of inclusivity, body neutrality, and community and I feel privileged to uphold these standards every single day! Thank you all for trusting me and I look forward to building relationships for years to come!

See you soon!


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!
