At AmandaSteene Cosmetics we want you to be the individual you have always been and enhance your radiant self.
I grew up in the honeymoon capital of the world, Niagara Falls. As a young girl I was always into girly things – I loved my outfits, my purses, and most of all my mother’s makeup. I would always enter colouring contests and usually win first or second prizes. I loved colour, everything in my life had to be bright and full of colour. From a young age I would always borrow my mom’s lipstick and play in her makeup bag. It seems everyone knew that with my creative side that I would working in an artistic field. Not to mention art was always my favourite subject. I have always been very adventurous and spent a lot of time travelling and trying new exotic foods, interacting with different local cultures, and enjoying all activites that were available around the world. I love culture and getting to know new people from all walks of life. In my twenties I decided to make my passion for makeup my profession. This passion only gets stronger as the years go by and I have been very grateful to have worked in the industry with many talented and amazing beautiful people. I have been a makeup artist for over ten years now, and have worked with Mac Cosmetics, Motives, and freelence. I have spent time doing photoshoots, special events, small independent films, music videos and working in the wedding industry with brides and bridal parties. My experience and travels led me to never take things for granted, and I became inspired to want to build a company and make perfect cosmetics for all you wonderful people out there. Over the years I’ve noticed that I usually had to blend different foundations together to try and get a close match for all enthicities . But having said that it was never exact. I know how tough it is to go to a retail store and have someone tell you what foundation you should be wearing and when you take it home it just doesn’t seem right. This makeup struggle has been a positive inspiration for me. The creation of AmandaSteene Cosmetics has begun.
