Kelly Gleason Scholarship for the Makeup Arts
We understand that sometimes the investment in starting your career can be an overwhelming or unattainable one. We’ve introduced this special scholarship program in honor of our good friend Kelly Gleason, who passed away in late 2007, to honor her work and allow one makeup artist each year to follow in her passion of makeup artistry.
