Edna Mae Sheen

Le Skintique Salutes:

  *The Memory of Edna Mae Sheen*

James & Dawn White and the staff of Le Skintique sadly note the passing of our beloved

Edna Mae Sheen, sister, friend and skin care expert.

Le Skintique welcomed Edna Mae as our Advanced Skin Care Specialist in 2008. She quietly departed this life on January 20, 2012, perhaps to make Heaven a bit more fabulous.

Edna worked for more than two decades in the glamour and advanced skin care industry and transitioned into teaching, production management, purchasing and product marketing.

We salute her accomplishments as an Emmy and Academy Award nominated make-up artist and department head for over 100 television and feature film productions.
