The mineral makeup collection was developed by Dr. Hopkins in collaboration with her associates Cathi and Lori French. The M.D. Minerals on-site studio allows clients to have private one-on-one makeovers with staff makeup artists and stylists. The practice also offers consultations and makeovers to provide advice and help achieve desired looks for daytime, evening, and important social events. The Hopkins Dermatology staff helps teenage girls and women of all ages learn about proper skin care and makeup choices that enhance their natural beauty, as well as makeup application techniques that highlight their best features.
This new generation, cutting edge product line is available at Hopkins Dermatology's own state-of-the-art facility in Monroe, Louisiana as well as at Audubon Dermatology in New Orleans and Signatures in Monroe and at a growing number of dermatology offices and high-end boutiques. The products are also available for purchase on the M.D. Minerals' website. The company is positioned to expand into the global market with plans to move into New York City, Los Angeles, London and other major cities.
