I could not be more grateful for finding such amazing makeup artists for my wedding. I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to makeup (I have done my own makeup for all of my brothers weddings instead of getting it done) but she made me feel so beautiful without being over done. My main concern was if she'd be able to cover up a few blemish scars and she completely did! My bridesmaids and I were beyond pleased and would use her a million times over. Thank you so much !!!Jun 12, 2017Verified
I waited until the last minute to find a wedding makeup artist which I do not recommend. Ami traveled to where we were getting our hair done and worked with us in price. She is very skilled and made us all look beautiful without looking overdone. Thanks Ami!Feb 25, 2016Verified
Everything was WONDERFUL! Shes a great makeup artist and so much fun to work with! My bridesmaids and I looked GREAT and we couldnt have been happier. I would definately recommend Ami to anyone looking for quality work :) I trusted her every step of the way!Sep 26, 2017
Ami is the best makeup artist you will ever meet in Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland area. Her work is so detailed and flawless. She's young, yet so talented. I highly recommend her work. You won't want anyone else after she does your makeup for the first time..I definitely don't!Feb 9, 2015
Ami is beyond amazing. I will recommend her service to anyone! Whether you need an everyday look, or a fancy formal event look, Ami is the girl to see! By far she is a 5 star makeup artist. I look forward to seeing her again.Jun 5, 2015
- 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.
