About Me!


Hello Beauties and Studs!!

My name is Amanda and I’m a Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, working in television. You can see most of my work on news channels, such as MSNBC and CNN. I am a product junkie and live for beauty. I have a deep appreciation for self expression and treat each face as a canvas.  Though I did not go to makeup school, I combine my obsession with makeup with my film school background to insure that every face is transformed and camera ready!

Having said that I love TV, film, animals, tattoos and the entertainment industry in general, so I’ll post some stuff on that as well as the tons of makeup related things. Either way, thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

    I am super interested in starting a makeup business. My full time job is an office manager at a dental office. I don’t have time to go to school but like you I have such a passion for makeup. I was wondering if you could give me any pointers on starting my business and any tips I can get on how to perfect makeup application.

      Hello! Thank you for your interest! I’ll tell you this, you don’t have to go to makeup school to become an artist. It is easier to break in because you have credentials but it’s definitely not necessary. I did not go to makeup school, I went to film school. My advice is just get yourself out there. Build a strong kit and get your portfolio going. Even if you have to trade makeup for pictures, get your hands on as many faces as you can. Watch tutorials, get on sites like beautylish or ipsy to talk with other makeup enthusiasts. As far as perfecting application, that’s just a lot of practice…on all types of skintones and ages. Another tip is to take workshops at your local makeup store. Mac has some. I don’t know where you live but look for big makeup stores near you to see what kind of workshops they offer. Also go to the big makeup conventions.

      Let me know if you have any product questions or any particular application questions.

      Hope this helps,
