About US

Ernest’s Couture was inspired by my close relationship with my father. I connected my creative approach to entrepreneurship to my passion for quality makeup & fashion to successfully operate Ernest’s Couture. We started an e-commerce store in 2010 and we evolved and opened our storefront in 2016. Once I completed high school, I received my bachelor’s degree from UCLA, a master’s degree from Pepperdine University, and I am an Ed D candidate at USC. As a former educator (I will always have a heart of a teacher), I appreciate and understand how education could provide broader opportunities to our students. Therefore, we offer student discounts on products (certain brands are excluded) when you visit our store. Don’t forget to bring your ” current & valid” student identification. We are grateful & looking forward to our growth by partnering with fashion shows, pageantries, and product brand companies. We are excited about the team of experts (makeup artist, social media strategist, and esthetician) we are forming to serve our lovely customers.
