- About Ashimoto -
Meryl Proctor, makeup artist and founder of Ashimoto Essential Beauty admits she still has her Barbie doll collection under her bed. It's that passion for dress up and play that has made her a successful beauty expert for over 21 years. But now she gets to "play" with larger-than-life dolls like brides-to-be, runway models and even The Housewives of New Jersey have been her clients. Her work has appeared in a variety of publications including New Jersey Bride, New York Bride and Town & Country. She's worked alongside industry icons like Bobbi Brown and Trish McEvoy, as well as designers like Michael Kors and Cynthia Rowley and continues to do professional photoshoots and special occasion work. As an airbursh artist and eyelash extension expers, she's dedicated to ensuring her clients have the latest techniques and products at their disposal. That's why she's partnered with Inglot Cosmetic of Poland with store locations in Dubai, England, Italy, Paris, and NY. Meryl may still love her Barbies, but she doesn't play around when it comes to beauty.
