Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I focus on every aspect of the face through defining brows, contouring and highlighting facial features, applying lashes with precision, creating eyeshadow looks that make the eyes stand out, etc. I'm also very detail-oriented. You will never find me trying to rush through a session just to finish. I take my time because I have a good time doing what I love - makeup! Definitely being able to see the surprised reaction of my clients' face after the makeup application! I don't let my clients see their face until after I'm done! I love how their confidence boosts instantly!

Ami did a phenomenal job! I had a diverse wedding party and she was able to provide glamorous looks for each person. Days after the wedding, we are still talking about how well we all looked. Ami is a master at her craft and I highly recommend her for any event.

Ami was amazing to work with!! She was so quick to respond and answered all my questions in a kind, professional manner. She was super flexible with coordinating dates and times for the trial. I didn’t end up having the wedding as planned because of COVID, but based on what she did for the trial, I know that everyone would have been so happy with the turnout. Highly recommend!!!

Details: Wedding • 26 - 44 years old • Airbrushed makeup (spray tool) • False lashes • 9 people • My home, venue, etc.

When I was looking for someone to do my makeup for my wedding, I turned to Thumbtack. I expressed interest in a few makeup artists. Ami was the first one to respond. She was open to answer any questions. She was open to phone calls. Ami was not pushy at all. She clearly takes pride in her craft. The day of the wedding, Ami did my makeup as well as my daughters and a friend. She listened to what our preferences were (I.e. colors, lashes, etc.). We were all SO pleased with how we looked. She’s is a gifted makeup artist. I would go back to her in a heartbeat.

Details: Wedding • 45 - 64 years old • 26 - 44 years old • Airbrushed makeup (spray tool) • False lashes • Day-of or night-of touch ups • Tattoo or scar covering • Pre-event makeup trial • 3 people • My home, venue, etc.

Ami was probably one of the most professional people I've worked with. She sent a detailed schedule for when my bridesmaids would need to get their hair and makeup done and she STUCK TO IT! Some of the girls were even done early. Everyone looked stunning and my six bridesmaids kept telling me how impressed and happy they were with her service. I would 110% recommend Ami to future friends who require similar services in the future and I would 110% book again in the future! Thank you for helping make the morning run so so smoothly!

Details: Wedding • 26 - 44 years old • Airbrushed makeup (spray tool) • False lashes • 6 people • My home, venue, etc.

She did an absolutely wonderful job doing the makeup for my bridal party and she is just such a delightful person to be around in general. She has a very sweet and calm presence. She showed up on time and kept to the schedule that she had arranged with me beforehand. Everyone looked amazing! She did such a good job, I couldn’t have been happier.

Details: Wedding • 26 - 44 years old • 45 - 64 years old • Airbrushed makeup (applied with spraying tool) • Romantic and soft • Day-of or night-of touch ups • 6 people • $$ (standard) • Need some more information before hiring • The makeup artist travels to me

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I get asked a lot if I offer hair as well. YES, I work with a team of both hairstylists and makeup artists.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes, I watch a lot of makeup artists on YouTube. I also try to go to as many makeup artistry workshops that are being offered around my Chicagoland area. Utilizing a little bit of everyone's techniques and never being closed minded is the best way to grow as a makeup artist. I'm also attending Tricoci University as a licensed esthetician/makeup artist, and I graduate October 2018.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've always thought it was so amazing to see these makeup transformations on What Not To Wear. I would practice on my mom as a little girl but never thought I'd be as good as the artists on the show. One day I came across a makeup artist named Makeup Geek on YouTube. She was so inspiring because I saw how much she was inspiring all her viewers. I learned the foundation of what I needed to know from her on how to apply makeup and how to inspire others.
