For the individual who is getting prepared for a night on the town, prom night, wedding day, or a birthday dinner and is in need of makeup services, this is the place to go.

The studio was opened by Alores Norris. She is a mother, wife, and an accomplished business owner. She is also a friend, dreamer, and go-getter. She has always had a passion for makeup artistry, but it took discipline and order for her to get to where she is now.

House of Flawless didn’t open until February 10, 2017, but the journey began in 2004 while Alores was living in Germany. As a stay at home wife, she started studying traditional makeup applications and eventually got her certification. From Germany she moved to Lawton, Oklahoma where she picked up a little clientele. However, her makeup skills wasn’t exactly where she wanted them to be on the artistry side. Additionally she didn’t possess the business knowledge, so she decided to go back to school at Cameron University to study Studio Arts. That is when her makeup turned into art and her art turned into her vision. She started to understand the true meaning of color and theory, hue difference, warm verses cool, and the behavior of color mixtures.

“Studying Studio Arts is where I fell in love with the Renaissance Art. I gazed into the eyes of Rococo Art for hours from my art books and daydreamed about being Leonid Afremov. Unfortunately, I wasn’t that talented at painting. I was nowhere near that good and I would never be Leonid Afremov and create his type of master pieces. I knew I could study his style of painting and transform his style of art into my style of art and make my own masterpieces. Years later I toyed with the idea of having my own boutique but never believed that it was in the cards for me. I kind of pushed it in the back of my mind,” she says.

Once she moved to South Carolina she applied for jobs at different makeup counters and after finally being hired at one she quickly realized the artistry wasn’t the main goal at a makeup counter. She eventually quit that job and did freelance here and there. Her clientele grew tremendously and she got another makeup counter job at Ulta. She worked there for a while before opening and renting a small studio space on the second floor of a hair salon. Things were going well and she had an increase in clientele, but all of a sudden it stopped. That door was closed. Once again the thought of having her own studio crossed her mind, but how in God’s name could she do that. “I can’t continue to keep quitting jobs and put all of this burden on my husband. So I had a long talk with God. I was so distracted by the failures and letdowns that I couldn’t see that he was preparing me for my own, but even bigger,” she says.

After her temper tantrum with God, she began to listen and move only when He told her to. “I started meditating and working on the life I wanted for myself and my family. I started to work on my relationship with God and the more I trusted in him the more I realized that the closed door was not only for my protection, but it was never simply my door to begin with. Nine months later I signed the lease to my cosmetic store with God on one side and my incredible, supportive husband on the other. On February 10, 2017, House of Flawless was born, and we have been making history ever since,” she says.
