About

Here at Sweet Cherry Spa you will find me, Scotia-leigh Kauppi.

me walleye 2018

I am a Certified Esthetician, Certified Nail technician, Certified Lash Artist and  Certified Makeup Artist. I am an industry advocate through the Professional Beauty Association.

I have been in the business for 15 years. I come from a more strict and health based background (from the mortuary sciences and working in tattoo parlors) along with being a college instructor for Everest College’s esthetics course.  I am bilingual in French and am learning German as well. Don’t let the bright hair & tattoos fool you ; I’m very serious, and take great pride in my career.

I love makeup and anything that you can do to beautify oneself… even if beauty to you is avant garde!

I love to try new styles in nail art and makeup to match! Working with clients in the spa, on set and for weddings is my passion. Booking with me is relaxing, educational and fun!

I am also a special effects makeup artist by consult only.

WHAT PRODUCT DO YOU USE?

I use only the best product lines in the spa room.  I make sure that all products are eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty free, mineral based and more. Following my Safe, Smart and Sweet standards, I want to be able to make sure that the products I am using and selling are good for you and the planet.

Safe – Dermatologist tested, eco-friendly products are the best way to include all skin types, sensitivities and lifestlye choices. All my products are maternity and child friendly.

Smart – If I can’t tell whats in it, neither can you. I make sure that I know all active and inactive ingredients in my products to make sure nothing will create new issues.

Sweet – Cruelty free products are kind to our animal friends and kind for us. All smells from products are light, sweet and no perfumes.
