Madelin White advises clients on how to find the best color combinations and make-up to work with their skin tones.

When Madelin White talks with a customer, she is focused on transformation.  She instructs on make-up application, color choices, and healthy lifestyles.  Through her locally owned cosmetic business, Merle Norman, White has been a Thurston County business owner for 40 years.

Founded in 1931 by a chemist, the Merle Norman product line is hypo-allergenic and not tested on animals. Each storefront, including Madelin’s, is locally owned and operated.

As the owner of Merle Norman, White uses her knowledge gleaned over forty years of running Merle Norman to teach people going through cancer treatments how to use makeup to camouflage the effects of radiation and chemotherapy, or properly chose a wig that best fits their face and coloring.

To find your best color choices, inquire about a wig, schedule a massage or sign up for a class, contact Madelin White and Merle Norman.
