Julian’s Cosmetics + Skincare
As a dancer, Julian Reynolds has performed on Broadway, and as a makeup artist, he's dusted pigment on Halle Berry, Bette Midler, and Christina Aguilera. But after moving to Atlanta from the Big Apple, Julian decided it was time to work for himself. After honing his craft at an upscale spa, and applying makeup photographed by Simply Buckhead and Jezebel, he enlisted the help of business partner Craig Allemeier and founded Julian's Cosmetics + Skincare.
Today, he's still lining lids, contouring complexions, and flexing his intimate knowledge of skincare and cosmetics products—but on his own terms. Julian has not only stocked his spa with talented aestheticians and makeup artists, but he's also furnished it to be a contemporary, slickly appointed facility. Glossy and white, with high ceilings and a yogurt moat, the spa is as soothing to the eye and mind as it is to pores. From peels to gentle massages, complexions bask in a sprawling choice of services, with Dermalogica brand serums often doing the heavy lifting. Makeup recipients, meanwhile, open their eyes to see dramatic transformations. And because it's also a boutique, clients can take home favorite products from a long list of lines.
