Robert Hudson Makeup Studio is not your typical Makeup Boutique, where you find hundreds of products for sale, but no one who can help you determine what is right for you. Unfortunately, anyone can call themselves a Makeup Artist. We all know better. Experience, artistic skills and teaching ability determine if someone is a true Makeup Artist.
We do not want to be a "self-serve" kind of place. Robert only sells products that he loves and uses. We carry Keromask concealer/foundation ( you will never use anything like it!) and loose powder, RevitaLash and RevitaBrow, AbOvo organic anti-aging skin care, billybBEAUTY brushes, Ve's favorite Brushes from Legendary Makeup Artist Ve Neill, MUD mascara, eye shadows, bronzers, blushes, powders, lip pencils, lipsticks and glosses, Face to Face SuperMatte Antishine, Sheer Light shimmery highlighters, White Light matte highlighter, Smudgeliner Eyeliner Pots, Rosebud Salve, Evian Facial Mist, Eyemimo Lashes (they make lashes for ALL the big lines), BREN NY Tinted Moisturizer, lipsticks and lip pencils and Hollywood Fashion Tape Oil-BlottingSheets.

From Busta at the Fairmont to The Guy Keefer Salon to Salonsenoj to 14 years with M.A.C., Robert has enjoyed the privilege of having his work grace the faces of numerous celebrities. His favorite clients, though, are the ones he works with regularly. There are a lot of women in New Orleans who won't even buy a lipstick without Robert's advice.
You have seen Robert's work at every event in town where the fashionable people gather. He has done makeup for your next-door neighbor, your Mom, your sister (and possibly your brother!), your niece's Sweet 16, your husband's secretary, your co-worker, that teller at the bank who always looks so good, your Dr., your Dr.'s nurse, half the brides in New Orleans, and so on and so on. These are the people who make this more than just a job. To make people feel special and beautiful is a great thing, both for the client and for Robert.
