Master Artist Founder

Meet Aimee

There were two things that Aimee was naturally drawn to as a kid: faces and colors. In her younger years, she was obsessed with using color pencils to apply colors, or “makeup”, to the faces in black and white magazines and make them come to life.  As an adult she worked in creative career such as graphic design and photography for a while. However she was always the happiest giving makeovers during her side gig of freelancing for cosmetic companies. After many referrals, it became clear that becoming a makeup artist was her calling and she started her business.

Aimee holds a high standard for her work and growth as a person and as an artist. Perfection is not what she’s striving for, but rather balance. She is the master artist/team leader for Aimee & Team, a group of professionally trained/licensed makeup artists and hairstylists serving the Bay Area, and has worked with more than a thousand faces since 2006.

The Team

Grace is very detail-oriented and customer-oriented. She takes pride in her work. She has been closely trained and worked along side with Aimee for the last 8 years. Grace loves weddings and nothing brings her as much joy as making her clients look & feel beautiful yet still themselves
Minnie enjoyed art since the moment she could pick up a brush. She took many art classes from painting, drawing, ceramic and fashion so when it came to makeup, it was like second nature. Makeup is art. It is about expressing yourself and a way for a woman to look and feel like herself in a confident way. Minnie has experience in makeup for over 10 years. She believes that beauty is about enhancing what you have and it starts by being yourself and comfortable with who you are. Inner beauty is important and adding lipstick is a must!
Anh originally took up makeup as a stress reliever from her day job and quickly discovered how transformational and fulfilling it was. She's trained as a professional makeup artist and now enjoys beautifying her clients for their special occasions. Anh believes that when it comes to makeup, less is more; that it should enhance your natural beauty and empower your confidence.

Testimonials

  • First of all, I cried like everyday the week right before my wedding. (Stress and emotion...) Aimee was still able to make me look magnificent! Aimee and her team were professional and they did a great job on me and my bridesmaids. Aimee was like an angel and was always around to help. I love both of my hairstyle and the second one was my favorite! Last but not least, she is great in communication. We were able to text update some last minute changes and she was so willing to work with me.

  • I wish I could have Aimee glam me up every day!!! Aimee did my hair and makeup on my wedding day and I am so glad that I trusted her to do the job! I was very nervous about entrusting my face and hair to someone on what should be the most important day of your life but once I met Aimee and had my trial with her, I calmed down instantly.

    She is very professional, sweet, and she listens to exactly what you want. She works with each one of her brides to make sure that they are precisely how they want to look on their big day. Hats off to you Aimee - thank you for making me feel way more beautiful than I ever have in my life!

  • Simply amazing!! Aimee is easy to work with and does a fantastic job on makeup and hair! She's willing to listen and at the same time provide great recommendations on what styles of makeup and hair fits you best. I knew I would definitely go with her for my wedding makeup and hair after the trial session, during which she spent more time than what it says on the contract just to create a look we both liked. Besides her amazing makeup skills, Aimee was also fun to work with and easy to communicate. Would highly recommend anyone who's looking for a makeup and hair artist for special occasions!! Thank you Aimee!

  • I engaged with a handful of different makeup artists for my two wedding celebrations and Aimee was, by far, my absolute favorite. She's really fun, sweet, friendly, professional, and personable. She's not just a makeup/hair artist but a passionate one and her work truly speaks volumes to that. She has an such eye for detail, even the tiniest littlest ones, that you KNOW she wants you to not only look your best and also FEEL your best and that's so crucial on the big day.

    Sometimes the email responses were a little slow but with a follow up, there was always a response. When she's in the room with you doing a trial or your day of, she is there 110%. She's always on time if not early. Was never late and that's a quality I really value (especially on such important days!). My makeup and hair were flawless on the day of, seriously. After 10+ hours of wear including some perspiration due to the warm weather, all the hugs and kisses and guests literally putting their face to mine, everything still looked PERFECT! Not joking. So many guests asked me who had done my makeup and hair. Aimee is the best. I wish I could have another wedding but only so that I could have her do my makeup and hair again, haha!

    Also, don't be turned off by her pricing. At first, I was like "this is way too much, I'd never spend this much.." but Aimee is more than worth it. I've now tried a handful of other makeup artists in addition to Aimee and can confidently recommend you NOT waste your time with other trials (they do add up!) and if Aimee's style is what you're looking for, just book a trial with her already! Trust me. You won't regret it!

  • I love Aimee!! She's so sweet and talented! I learned about her after reading a wedding magazine that featured her as a make-up artist. I fell in love with her work because she's able to make a bride look glamorous yet natural. She's very approachable, professional, and responsive.
    I had a trial make-up session with her months before the wedding, and prior to our meeting, she asked me to send her a photo of me without and with make-up as well as photos of hair and make-up that I wanted for the wedding. She wanted to be prepared when she met with me so that our time would be efficient. I loved how I looked from our session, and she took photos from that day so she could remember how I wanted to look that day.
    On the day of the wedding, she showed up early to ensure that I would be ready in time for the photographers' arrival. She was also very flexible and helped do my mom's make-up last minute. My mom wanted to do her own make-up but I insisted she got professional help after seeing her the night prior at my rehearsal dinner. My mom ended up loving the make-up Aimee did for her as well. I also had my bridesmaids hair done, so Aimee had an assistant to help with them. Everything turned out just the way I wanted, and I felt beautiful on my wedding day. :)
