Blushington Academy

Brand & Category Launch

Consumer Insight

Freelance makeup artists can go to school to study artistry, but most never learn how to run a successful business. And, as every entrepreneur knows, relying on “school of life” costs time and money.

The Challenge

Convince the pro community to invest in their careers when their income had mostly vanished. Blushington, a popular chain of brick & mortar makeup boutiques, faced a 100% drop in revenue when COVID-19 closed its stores. Pivoting from service to education, Blushington Academy launched as a first-of-its-kind business school for makeup artists.
