Pearse’s Story
Artistry Whiz
Pearse’s background in cosmetics prepared him to step into the education side of things. After nearly 15 years behind the brush, he started exploring within the field and realized his knack for training. Luckily, he drew that conclusion while at Smashbox—and was able to help add a few shades of makeup wisdom to the company’s repertoire.

What Pearse Does
Manager, Strategic Training Programs & National Events
Pearse primarily works with Smashbox’s largest retail partner to train cast members and ensure the studio feel transcends HQ. To achieve this, Pearse splits his time between sites and in-office sessions with the Education Department. Based on goals the team creates, Pearse either builds out the video library or improves the multi-tiered training program he helped implement.
