Hello All! My name is Alicia and I am the sole employee and owner of Alicia's Makeup Artistry. This passion began when I picked up paint brushes and painted pictures for friends and family in highschool, then I discovered the power of makeup and how it can help a person feel great about themselves. I love meeting new people, enhancing their best features, as well as teaching as I go. I focus on weddings but also offer makeup lessons, group makeovers, special event makeup, as well as makeup and hairstyling for photo shoots!
In 2010 I attended makeup school at Blanche MacDonald Centre in Vancouver, B.C. where I learned about the beauty industry, makeup techniques, hairstyling, airbrushing, and a large focus on cleanliness when it comes to the products and tools I use. During school I worked at Benefit Cosmetics, then moved back to Lincoln, NE and pursued a career with MAC cosmetics where I worked for about 3 years. MAC required a lot of training and product knowledge as well as skill when it comes to artistry. I grew a lot as an artist working with all types of skin tones, textures, ages, and face shapes. During this time I was slowly pursuing my freelance career, but didn't take the leap of faith to start my business and go out on my own until 2013. It has been one of the most scary and exciting adventures of my life, well until I had twins last year, that made everything even more fun!
When it comes to your wedding day, I make sure you have the look You want and envisioned for your big day. I want my clients to be comfortable and happy with the end results, I also take a lot of steps to make sure your makeup is not something you have to worry about that day. I use products that are long wearing, look good in person and in pictures, as well as safe and comfortable on your skin. Bottom line is that I want you to feel beautiful on your wedding day, and if you let me, I would love to help!

In short - Alicia was amazing! She did make-up for 9 women and 3 girls and they all looked stunning! You only have to look through her portfolio to see how talented she is. On top of that, she was wonderful to work with. Throughout the planning process, she was so kind, professional, and accommodating and make everything easy. I'm thrilled that she was a part of the day and recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful make-up! Thank you so much, Alicia!
