But that wasn’t enough for von Loudon…

doors opened to The Institute of Makeup Artistry & F/X of San Antonio, the
very first school of its kind, sharing her exclusive clientele with her students which has created the perfect learning platform for anyone that has a dream of one day having the ability to transform through Makeup Artistry.
