Hansen owns Beauty-N-Brows Studio in St. George, where she does makeup, wardrobe, and color consultations with her clients.
“Every woman is beautiful, and a lot of the time they don’t realize that,” Hansen said. “I help women develop and enhance their natural beauty.”
The first thing Hansen does for a client is to determine what colors complement her complexion.
“As we learn our proper colors that starts us out on the road, because that determines makeup color, hair color, even eyeglass frames,” Hansen said.
Hansen does the client’s makeup and eyebrows, and provides other services as appropriate. She also does wardrobe consultations.
“I help women to edit what they have in their closet and make a list of things that are going to create a functioning wardrobe,” Hansen said. “We take out things that are not her colors and … pieces that do not enhance her body type.”
Hansen also mixes and matches clothing in a client’s wardrobe to create new outfits.
“I’ve made thirty, forty outfits in a woman’s closet that she has never even worn together,” Hansen said.
One goal behind the wardrobe consultation is helping a client get the most value from her purchases.
“People are beginning to look at how they can stretch their money further. Our beauty budget has to go further,” Hansen said. “If you have someone that can advise you on proper beauty purchases, it makes a big difference.”
Hansen also understands the important role personality plays in beauty design.
“Personality is so important. I’m not going to dress you like me because we have two different personalities,” Hansen said. “Personality is a huge part of beauty. You have to be able to embrace each person’s personality separately and differently.”
Among other services, Hansen can dye eyebrows and eyelashes, provide facials, and give her clients instruction on how to best apply makeup.
Hansen first became interested in makeup during college by doing makeup for friends who were studying photography. Soon she turned her full attention to makeup and became a certified color analyst. She is also a licensed master esthetician, professional makeup artist and master brow designer. She has done makeup for film, commercials, and print.
Despite her experience in such varied venues, Hansen enjoys working with the “everyday woman” most.
“I’ve done it all, but I like working one-on-one and helping people get what they want out of their natural beauty,” Hansen said. “That’s what’s more fun to me than anything. It’s really rewarding. And if your work isn’t rewarding, what’s the point? Do what you love.”
