THE BRAND, THE PASSION, THE CREATION
AND THE GIRL BEHIND IT ALL…
Hi…I’m Hollie. The girl behind the Mascara wand. If you would like to know a little about me you’re in the right place! First and foremost, I should say that I have been sharing my love for EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL since I was a little girl.
Fast forward to my twenties, a decade before I established my company Privé Beauty Lounge, I had the privilege of being commissioned to work as a MAKEUP ARTIST for some of the largest cosmetic houses in the world such as Estée Lauder, Christian Dior, Chanel and Lancomê.
Fast forward a bit more…I had a vision to create a local beauty company that would in-turn become a trendsetter. I wanted this company to be a purveyor of a unique beauty lifestyle with concepts that capture the craving of ALL of its patrons.

My dream for Privé Beauty Lounge was to create a LUXURY MOBILE BEAUTY COMPANY. I wanted my company to stand apart from other salons and spas that cater to the masses and play a seminal role as a trendsetter in Victoria’s fast-growing beauty sector.
Ever since it was established in 2010, Privé Beauty Lounge has been synonymous with a DISTINCTIVE PRIVATE SERVICE CONCEPT and has since established itself as a purveyor of a UNIQUE BEAUTY LIFESTYLE with concepts that capture the craving of its patrons.
With unique services and amenities, the dedication and devotion each client receives ensures that with each visit their expectations are surpassed. My recognize my clients standards may be high, therefore my standards of cleanliness, professionalism and knowledge are even higher.
Not only do my clients enjoy the flexibility offered by a VARIETY OF AMENITIES, and the EASE OF AVAILABILITY, they enjoy the elegance and authenticity I build into their request and experience. Everyone at Privé Beauty Lounge is a VIP and whether I provide makeup for a bridal party on-location, an at-home manicure or a spray tan party with friend. The Privé Beauty Lounge experience begins the minute a client inquires about their request and all the specifications they desire. Once an inquiry has been made, I will tap into my years of expertise and orchestrate the right fit for luxury, service and ambiance.
With a distinctive private service concept, the luxurious service my company offers is perfect for entertaining with an ambiance and energy that is sure to impress anyone. And for the discreet client who wishes only to be PAMPERED IN STYLE AND LUXURY, Privé Beauty Lounge is second to none.
Before I tell you about the company I think its important to share with you my passion. If you know me, you will know that my passion is result of my creativity, sharp skills and thoroughness of the workforce. Moreover, I am constantly monitoring the global trend and needs of the market to ensure that my company, Privé Beauty Lounge will always be the first to develop high class service.
I have immersed myself with ongoing education to ensure that quality products are used on all my clients and that the services I provide are with the utmost perfection. I have been certified in Makeup Artistry and Cosmetology since 2000. I am also certified in Eyelash Extensions, Airbrush Tanning and Nail Technology and I have recently received my certification in Hair Dressing. Extensive research has also developed my creative skills in providing an exclusive touch in all areas of my company, thus making Privé Beauty Lounge truly distinctive among its contenders in the market. I have recently created a new Spray Tanning division of Privé Beauty Lounge called NKDTAN.
First, THE NAME. Why did I call it Privé Beauty Lounge? Let me first give you a Pop Quiz! Can you pronounce Privé? Hint: It’s French for PRIVATE (Note the acute accent over the É). We are in Canada and Canada is a bilingual country, so it surprises me when some people butcher the pronunciation. No, it doesn’t rhyme with pride or sound like privy. Like I said, we are in Canada – Eh? Just pronounce the Eh! – Phew, glad I got that off my chest.
Originally when I was just doing makeup artistry my company was named HMAKEUP however, when I started to offer services other than makeup, I knew it was time for a name change. When thinking of a new name for my company I wanted something that spoke true to the concept. I wanted my clients to feel comfortable like how they do in the privacy of their own homes. I wanted to make them feel at ease by bringing the beauty of a lounge to them.
I was (and still am) also really into luxury designers like Dior, Chanel, Fendi and Armani Privé…Eureka! It hit me… PRIVÉ! Privé means private…Private Beauty Lounge…Privé Beauty Lounge – and VOILA, the name was born! And it wasn’t long before my new mission was set. The mission was for Privé Beauty Lounge to provide a distinctive private service concept with unique services and amenities – And I accomplished it. I created Vancouver Islands very own bespoke Luxury Mobile Beauty Company!
Now, THE CREATION. If you are like me and you have caught yourself watching T.V. shows like The Real Housewives series or Keeping Up With The Kardashians you would know the celebrity personalities on these shows are RICH (duh!) How about SO RICH they don’t need to leave their homes to get their hair, makeup or nails done. THEY HIRE PEOPLE! The pay a lot of money and these people come to them to make them look gorgeous! So many times, I have been told “Hollie, I wish I could take you home with me?” or “I wish you could do my makeup for me every morning!” Well, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I could finally say, “Sure! Why not?” And so it began…
