Sarahruth O'Boyle - Owner and Lead Artist
In my third year of teaching high school English, my favorite AP class asked me if I was doing what I loved.
Don't get me wrong, I loved teaching, but the answer came out without hesitation:
"If I had to choose anything, I'd be a full time hair and makeup artist."
The hypocrisy of preaching "follow" your dreams, while not following my own seemed obvious, so that summer I moved from Wilmington to Raleigh to enroll in cosmetology school.
I taught five more years, assiting for various companies on the weekends until finally, in January 2019, I founded Modern Alchemy.
My approach to makeup is the same as my approach to teaching: I want you to see the beauty you already possess, and it is an honor and a priveldge to be part of that process.
