Annie’s Story

Craving to develop her career while supporting her young family of three children, Annie Young chose to fully live her passion for beauty when she introduced her personalized makeup services, in the 80’s. After a few years in business, she decided to create a namesake line of products to offer a completely unique look to her growing clientele. Over the years, through hard work and determination, Annie has built her company into a flourishing business with the help of a dedicated team of makeup artists who share her enthusiasm and philosophy for a no-frills, easy approach to beauty.

Building a Solid Brand

Having grown up surrounded by beauty and her mother’s dedication for excellence, Annie Young’s daughter Sharleen came forward and joined the team in 1996, further cultivating the Annie Young name. Together, the dynamic duo constantly infuses new ideas into the family brand, while remaining committed to creating delightful lifestyle experiences for its clients. Today, Annie Young has expanded into a full-service spa, a cosmetics line, a shop, and a makeup school.
