The SLA Makeup Studio and Online Store

Encore Beauty opened their first SLA Makeup Studio and SLA Academy in Balmain, Sydney in December 2009. In early 2013 we decided to relocate our studio and academy to the heart of the Hills District, and in 2018 we have moved to the centre of Sydney – PARRAMATTA!  The SLA Makeup Studio is a destination to experience the full range of Serge Louis Alvarez products for makeup artists, students and consumers who are quality makeup devotees. If it is a full makeup pampering and learning experience that you are after, then look no further than the SLA Makeup Studio, located in the heart of the Parramatta CBD. Whether you are looking for a gift to take home, or a new look for yourself, the experienced SLA staff are trained to help you with whatever it is you require.  Gift vouchers are available, and can be redeemed on product, makeovers or private makeup lessons or workshops. Vouchers are available for any value. An ideal opportunity to update your individual look is to have a private makeup lesson or participate in a group workshop. Why not gather a few friends and book your own private group workshop!For more information visit www.slamakeupstudio.com.au.

Our online store www.slamakeupstudio.com.au was created to ensure that clients right across the country can access our beautiful products.  If you are a stockist of any of our brands we support you with a rebate for any online sales made in your suburb and our consumers are notified of your business for on-going purchases.
