CHAPMANVILLE — Aracoma Drug Company recently celebrated the opening of their newly-installed Merle Norman Cosmetics Studio.
Beauty Consultants Frances Collins and Amanda Lucas are available to help with your cosmetic needs, whether it is to just purchase make-up or for a makeover.
“Our cosmetics — eye shadow, lipsticks, foundation, etc. — is now just Merle Norman,” Collins said. “We still do offer a variety of fragrances.”
Collins said the studio offers lessons on how to apply make up, along with makeovers. They are also available to do makeup for special occasions.
“We can do your makeup for special occasions like weddings and pageants,” said Lucas.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Merle Norman Cosmetics develops, manufactures and distributes its own full line of skin care and color cosmetic products. It started in the late 1920s when Merle Nethercutt Norman began sharing skin care products of her own creation with family and friends. She demonstrated the products as an added service, believing if she could “get it on their faces” they would become customers. It was from this concept that the famous and much imitated slogan, “Try Before You Buy” originated.
