I’m Callie, a recent licensed esthetician that’s been lash extension certified since 2019. I found my way to Bare Beauty Skin Studio through my sister, Mattie.  I came on as a lash instructor for her and Taylor. That turned into lash pop-ups, which eventually turned into me being the part-time artist. I’m so excited to introduce more skincare services this year, as I’ve recently gotten my license.
