Elizabeth York, Chicago Makeup Artist
My Mother has a picture of me at two years old with her mascara and lipstick smeared across my cheeks. At age four, she picked me up from the sitter only to discover that I had given myself “bangs” with a pair of scissors. At twelve I was studying the pages of Sassy, YM, and Seventeeen magazines, and had two distinctly different-shaped eyebrows after dabbling in the art of brow-shaping (my skill has since improved). And by high school I was the makeup artist to all my friends and styling fashion photo shoots out of my bedroom on the weekends.
Making people look and more importantly feel beautiful is what I was born to do. For me it is not about vanity; it’s about curiosity, creativity, confidence, and fun. I appreciate the beauty unique to each individual and my approach as a makeup artist is to emphasize natural beauty in a style that suits personality and taste. Everyone looks their best when they feel great, and my goal is to leave you looking and feeling like the most confident, glowing version of yourself.
