Best Custom Makeup - 2003
Oui, Three Queens
As we all know, beauty isn't always natural. Sometimes it takes blending! And Evan Kaminsky of Oui, Three Queens in Hayes Valley is a master at blending cosmetics. A veteran makeup artist who has studied both theatrical and prosthetic makeup, Kaminsky formulates lipsticks, foundations, concealers, and glosses while you watch. And natural beauty can be easily trumped by the "beautifully natural" look this artisan produces, from the mundane to the wild. His products are made using the finest mineral-based pigments and can be worn by even those with skin problems such as rosacea or distended capillaries. Choose your shade and intensity, customize your color. Was there once a hue you loved but no one else did? Here discontinued colors are resurrected before your eyes! Kaminsky specializes in weddings and wedding parties and even makes house calls.
