Julie Farley began her career as a professional model working in Seattle and, later, in the European and Paris markets. Finding interest in the cosmetic industry, Julie studied makeup artistry in Seattle and Los Angeles. Julie brings over 30 years of make-up experience, specializing in beauty, commercial and photography makeup. She is the former owner of The Make-up Studio in Spokane, Washington which for over 17 years provided makeup application services and consulting. The studio specialized in beauty and bridal makeup, private and group makeup lessons.
In 2002, Julie founded Project Beauty Share, a non-profit that collects personal hygiene, cosmetics and beauty products and distributes them through non-profit organizations who serve women and families overcoming abuse, addiction, homelessness and poverty. “I’ve had the privilege of celebrating special life moments with women through makeup. The simple truth is there are women whose circumstances do not allow them to share in those events with the same amount of self-esteem. Whatever the situation, the need for a woman to feel positive about her self-image must not be minimized”
Everyone deserves to feel valued.
Yet, women struggling to overcome abuse and poverty lack the basic essentials to care for themselves. Imagine going a day, a week, or more without an opportunity to care for your personal hygiene. It’s unthinkable, but countless women around the U.S. face this obstacle every day. To these women, cosmetics and personal care items aren’t just about beauty, nor vanity- they give them back their dignity as they work to rebuild their lives and reenter the workforce- and fill them with hop that there is a better tomorrow ahead; because there is.
