In 2006, Jason Ascher's understated artistry, skill for instruction and breadth of experience led to his invitation from Barneys New York to assume the unique position of resident artist.
Dubbed "East-Coast Beauty Guru" by Barneys New York's Artistic Director, Simon Doonan, Jason's union of cosmetic creativity and personal shopping service helped revolutionize the experience of buying cosmetics, all at no expense—other than the cost of the items selected for purchase. He strategically dispenses unbiased product recommendations in color, skin care and fragrance, by appointment from the privacy and comfort of a well-appointed studio in The Foundation at Barneys New York's Madison Avenue location.
Always attentive to his clients' lifestyles and individual beauty, Jason enjoys ongoing relationships with an ever-growing list of clients and makes sure he is present to help them feel confident and pretty for all those milestone occasions. This, Jason says, is "the most rewarding part of my work."
