GREEN — Merle Norman Cosmetics franchise owner Asma Durrani took over the seven-year-old business located in the Green Plaza at 4195 Massillon Road, Suite 204, last August.

Durrani said she sells Merle Norman makeup, skin care products and other items, and does makeovers.

She said she attended an “intensive and informative” 13-day training session in California to learn about the products and makeup application.

“I can do complete makeovers for special events, such as proms, birthdays and weddings, or offer simple touch-ups and beauty tips and tricks to help customers look their best every day,” she said.

Durrani said she carries a comprehensive line of products that include a skin care line, makeup, fragrances, deodorant, hand and body lotions and scrubs, and makeup brushes and cleaners from Merle Norman, as well as jewelry, purses and brushes from other manufacturers.

The skin care line has everything for all skin types, from cleansers, makeup removers, moisturizers, masks and exfoliaters, oil and blemish control, and serums, as well sun protection and tanners, according to Durrani.

The makeup line includes foundation, concealers, blush, eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner and lip products.

Durrani said Merle Norman products are manufactured in the United States and earned a Made in the USA Hall of Fame Award in 2013.

Durrani also offers facials, as well as skin assessments, to help customers find the right products for their skin and makeup to enhance their looks.

“I can help a woman look glamorous for a special occasion or get an everyday look to help them look their best,” she said. “All the products are sold with or without makeovers.”

Durrani said women of all ages, from teens to older women, are clients of the shop.

“We have people who started as teens, and they are still with Merle Norman as adults,” she said.

Merle Norman offers new colors and products every season, and in the next one, beginning in March, customers can get a free gift with the purchase of two items, according to Durrani.

Other specials are offered throughout the year, she added.

Merle Norman in Green is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the winter. Those hours will be expanded in March, according to Durrani.
