Thanks to Google Glass, makeup lessons and makeup applications taught by Alyson and her team of licensed makeup experts and instructors have been changed for the better.

A Makeover for the Makeup Industry with Google Glass

 Time and again, Alyson has heard from countless women about their frustration and disappointment with the cosmetics industry including intimidating experiences at makeup counters, pushy sales people, and the tiring new look every season to keep up with.

With Google Glass, we are making that promise even more of a reality each and every day!”

While video blogging felt unnatural to Alyson, Google Glass was a natural fit. “I give my clients 100 percent of my attention. This tool is hands free and doesn’t distract from my work,” she added.

For Alyson, Google Glass is long overdue in the makeup industry. “There are so many videos on the internet giving people makeup advice that is well intentioned yet ill informed. Now, our licensed makeup experts can teach people in our studio and around the world quick and easy makeup techniques to enhance their natural beauty.”
