Camellia, Your Cosmetic Store, owned by Rebecca Maalouf, opened on January 14, 2004 but she was working with the North Central ISBDC long before that. Rebecca, who had worked many years in the cosmetic industry, realized most of the big box stores were not giving the kind of personal service most women want and they certainly weren’t offering true make-up artistry. She envisioned artists that could not only apply make-up exquisitely but were very good at teaching the customers—making it easy for them to create similar results at home. Rebecca took advantage of training classes, site location resources, and became a regular appointment on her business advisor’s schedule…something she continues to do today! She has weathered tough economic times and competition moving into the area–yet she has persevered. In August of 2010, she opened a second store in Eddy Street Commons, a new shopping district located near the University of Notre Dame. She is booked most weekends for wedding party make-up, now using her new private label brand of cosmetics, launched Summer 2011. Camellia, named after Rebecca’s daughter, is definitely a place to discover a more beautiful you!
