About

Founded by Dean Brown, a beauty professional that has been in the industry for over 15 years, illume was created from the trajectory of his career as a makeup artist turned brow whisperer to being a fully licensed esthetician. Loving what transformations could be done by framing the face with beautiful brows, Dean sought out training by celebrity brow artist Damone Roberts to further his skillset. He has also been engaged in the online brow artist community for years and has sought out mentorship from some of the industry’s finest. After esthetics school and seeing the true power of clinical grade skincare, Dean now combines his brow mastery skills and love for providing relaxing yet results driven facials all in one spot.

When Dean is not beautifying his clients, he enjoys exploring restaurants, going to concerts, taking it easy with a favorite show, and all things Beyoncé. 


” My passion is to make you feel confident so that you may shine your light unto the world.”

It’s time to get illuminated

* you may add an upper lip wax to any service without booking a separate service; if you are only booking an upper lip wax, please select service; if you are needing upper lip and chin wax added to your service, please select service to allot extra time to your visit; you may also inquire about a full face wax that includes brow shaping/upper lip/chin/sideburns/etc

Please be advised that you cannot be waxed if you are currently on Accutane or using any prescription creams from a dermatologist. If you still would like your brows to be shaped with tweezers only, you may still book a service and an additional $10 fee will be added to your service cost. 

If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment time, you may be asked to cancel and rebook your appointment. A 100% service fee will be incurred. A no call/no show to your appointment will also result in a 100% service fee being incurred and prevent future bookings. Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours will result in a 50% service fee. Same day cancellations result in a 100% service fee. As a small business and a one man show, I have to enforce these policies. It’s not personal, it’s just business!
