Vanity Lounge in West Ave and celebrity makeup artist Edward Sanchez are going their separate ways. Sanchez’s name has been removed from the salon’s signage and he says he is taking his beauty business in a new direction.

The sudden change rattled clients of the upscale salon specializing in makeup, threading, waxing and facials, but Sanchez said that even though he is no longer affiliated with Vanity Lounge, he is still working and has new cosmetic launches set for the end of summer.

 “My desire is to make people feel beautiful on the inside and out and that’s what I’m still doing,” Sanchez said.

“I’m excited Vanity Lounge came to be and I’m excited to move forward on new products like my custom eye lashes and vitamin-inspired lipsticks,” Sanchez said.

The Edward Sanchez Cosmetics line has been an evolving project for a while and Sanchez said he is focusing on building that brand while still working with clients. His celebrity clientele ranges from Houstonians Diane Lokey Farb and Lynn Wyatt to such stars as Joan Rivers and Janet Jackson.

"My desire is to make people feel beautiful on the inside and out and that's what I'm still doing," Sanchez said.

For those looking to book an appointment, Sanchez asks clients to visit Schedulicity, an online booking service or contact him through the Edward Sanchez Cosmetics Facebook page.

Previously, the salon was called Edward Sanchez Vanity Lounge, a concept Sanchez created with partners Michael and Diane Caplan. He declined to be more specific about his departure. CultureMap also reached out to Diane Caplan regarding Vanity Lounge and she said had no comment at this time.

The boutique, under its shortened name, recently sent an email to customers offering a "mega-makeup" sale at 50 percent off.
