ANITA CHAN, OWNER

Past experience: I’d say my beauty specialty is skin care and permanent makeup.  I’ve been in the beauty industry since I was 14, starting off doing makeup then working at luxury spas and medspas around Bay Area and Los Angeles.

Must-have beauty product: Besides my skin care regimen, brow makeup and lip mask.

Best beauty hack: Cold brewed tea bags for the eyes and honey aspirin mask for breakouts.

How I spend free time: Traveling to explore the world or with my friends and family. Everybody is super busy living their daily lives, so any chance I get to see my loved ones is precious to me.

Favorite thing about San Francisco: I was born and raised in San Francisco, and what I love most is the energy and intelligence.

RIA TUCCIO

Past experience: Since I got my license in 2006 I have been working in various skincare clinics and spas around the city.

Must-have beauty product: I LOVE retinol products! They help keep my skin bright, firm and clear. 

Best beauty hack: Mineral makeup always makes my skin look even toned with a glow without clogging my pores or irritating my skin.

How I spend free time: I love to spend my free time outdoors either hiking or on the beach.

Best thing about San Francisco: I’m born and raised in the city so I might be a little bias but I think it’s just so beautiful.  There is always so much history, culture and of course amazing food.

JEANETTE KWAN

Past experience: I discovered my passion in skin care when I was a flight attendant.  I was constantly looking for ways to take care of my skin and ease the damage from frequent flying.  After retiring my wings and working in different industries, I decided to pursue my passion in skin care and obtained a license in esthetics.  I’m passionate in helping others feel beautiful inside and out. 

Must-have beauty product: Cle de Peau concealer. Shu Uemura hard formula eyebrow pencil and most importantly…sun screen.

Best beauty hack: Use a compact that contains SPF – it allows you to touch up your makeup and apply sunscreen at the same time.

How I spend free time: I love spending time with my family and friends – check out new restaurants in town or simply just have a small gathering at home.  I also like to take my fur baby to the park – watching him grass surfing puts a smile on my face every time. 

Favorite thing about San Francisco: I grew up in the Bay Area and I love San Francisco’s history and diversity.

ELIZABETH MORA

Past experience: My love for skin all began when I worked part-time at Ulta Beauty in 2016. I was always drawn more into skincare than makeup, and I wanted to do more than just sell skincare products. While I was in the works of becoming a Licensed Esthetician, I also obtained my Associates Degree in Allied Health Science and Interdisciplinary Studies: Social and Natural Sciences. I’m currently in school and studying Dietetics/ Nutrition, and in hopes of meshing the two things I love: food science and esthetics.

Must-have beauty product: Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched face base.

Best beauty hack: 

How I spend my free time: When I am not at school or work, I love to hang out with my friends and go on adventures. I love to eat! Trying out new food spots makes the day better. On other days I like sit back and relax at home, or even go on hikes with my dog.

Favorite thing about San Francisco:

ANJEANETTE SALOM

Past experience: Growing up with 3 sisters, I’ve been familiar with the beauty industry ever since I was young. I would spend so many hours watching YouTube tutorials that makeup quickly became something I loved doing. After a few years of wanting to be an Esthetician I finally decided to just go for it! I also took a lash extension course and instantly fell in love with doing lashes.

Must-have beauty product: Tatcha’s rice enzyme powder is my favorite daily exfoliator. It contains enzymes that are great for your skin while being free of harmful parabens and sulfates.

Elain Lifestyle

ELAIN SPRAGUE STUEBE

Past experience: I have been fascinated by the beauty industry since my Korean mother used to scrub me raw, sting me with astringent and slather on lotions.  In additon to my 15 year esthetician license, I hold a degee with honors in fine art; painting and drawing. 

Must-have beauty product: Anita B’s very own gel cleanser! 

Best beauty hack: Keep a spoon in the freezer for puffy eyes. 

How I spend free time: Beach, beer & babies.  Ok babies…but always beach and if I’m lucky , beer too.  

Favorite thing about San Francisco: Wherever I travel, being from SF matters – people all over the world have a special longing or memorable love of this place.  It’s like being a part of a global community that’s connected by this one, beautiful, open and progressive little-big town.
