Amanda was born in Upland California and moved to Northern California with her family at the age of 4. As a young child, Amanda showed a strong interest in drawing and painting. For her 18th birthday, a friend gave her a little makeup kit with "how to" makeup looks. She started spending most of her free time experimenting with color and would practice on any relative or friend that would let her.
After a 10 year career in banking, Amanda decided to turn her whole world upside down and chase after her dream of becoming a makeup artist in film and print. She moved back to Southern California to attend Make-Up Designory in Burbank. Since graduating from the Multimedia Program, she has worked in print, film, tv, runway, retail, and event makeup.
Currently, Amanda is a traveling freelance artist specializing in print, film, and television in Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area.
