While we wait for Smashbox Cosmetics's "giant" freestanding store to form, let's take a look at Smashbox Studios's remarkable renovation of its legendary Culver City facility. Although the 25,000-square-foot space—revamped with the help of Industrial Color Brands—is primarily meant to service photo shoots and video productions, it's new visual appeal now offers instant inspiration for anyone who visits.
"We've given Smashbox Studios a complete makeover and are excited for our guests to experience the enhanced space," says Davis Factor, founder of Smashbox Studios. "The reopening will be a celebration of Smashbox Studios's evolution of the last 25 years and highlight its new and innovative offerings."
About those offerings: major function upgrades to the studio include additional power, updated soundstages, Gb internet and Gb wireless networks throughout, custom designed makeup tables, modern AV systems, outdoor patios, and even a world-class cafe. Catch some more snaps below.
