Airbrush Gun Cleaning:
For some artists, cleaning their airbrush gun is too stressful and complicated, and they don't want to do it.  If you are one of those artist feel free to call us to schedule an appointment to have us clean it. We will take the gun fully apart and clean out any clogs and dried up foundation, then reassemble it and make sure it's back to a like new condition. This service typically takes a day and the gun will be ready to pick up in 24 hours. In some cases the gun may be past a point of no return and a deep cleaning will not help. In this case we will let you know as soon as we know. Sometimes repairs are needed also, we typically have spare parts on hand so we can replace most things if needed, we will contact you and make sure it is okay with you before we replace any parts as that will be extra.

Vanity & Glamour Cosmetics are designed with the true artists is mind, as we all wish to enjoy our own personal relationship with the true nature of self expression. Please keep at heart the thought that "there is no right or wrong in the world of makeup, as we all make it up as we see fit to any unique style." In other words do not be afraid of bright blue if you are a beige wearing blond, and in versa do not be afraid to tone it down if you are a ten shadow diva queen compete with glitter and faux lashes.

V.G. makeup styling is inspired by the Hierophants, Vedic Gurus, Native Shamans, and the High Priests & Priestesses of the old, to the inclusive divine trend-setters of today... YOU! There is only one rule of art we preserve in the highest of esteem; “Your body is your laboratory, and you are its only true chemist" –Augustine, This means you should feel free: 

-To present a "Vanity" when you wish to              sneak in and influence the world's                    perspective. Such as using a classic style to    climb a corporate ladder, or influence a           social status. Such styles can inspire you to     style step into new and unknown, or maybe    a familiar simple comfort zone, perfect for       the more natural makeup styles.
                                 (OR)
-To present a "Glamour" which is more              creative and usually the less conforming          side of makeup. In a glamorous state you        present an illusion so real that it can                 change your surrounding environment's          reality by fooling any observers to believe         the glamour is real! This is the more                 magical, self expressive, and often                    theatrical side of makeup artistry.

As a V.G. customer we ask that you treat your self always as a representation of the beautiful creative light that we all are, and enjoy the coloring book of the physical we have been given to play with. Always approach your mirror self with a loving, respectful, and radiant mantra such as:  

-"I am a beautiful being of light!" 
-"I radiate my own unique beauty!" 

If you’re feeling a little shabby, give no thought or utterance to worlds like "old" or "ugly,” especially to your mirror image, but rather redirect your mind and say: 

-"I have the potential to shine brighter!" 
-"I am thankful for my unique beauty!"

In hope that these words inspire you to share your very special and beautiful light of creativity with the world around you, we ask that you try to incorporate these creative thoughts into your experience with V.G. products to more explore your unique potential as an artist of this fabulous universe, 


                 Thank You for your visiting us!
