Emily Dupre Make-up Artist
Thank you so much for checking me out! Makeup has been my " thing" since I used to impatiently wait at the door for the Avon lady to bring my mom bags of those always adored tiny lipsticks...I was 3. However, professionally, I have been in the industry since 2007.
I decided to go to Aveda Institute Chicago for Esthetics in 2006. It was one of the best decisions I have made. I loved every second of my time at school but I always knew makeup was where I belong. After graduating I managed at MAC Cosmetics for 5 years. Nothing compares to being your own boss. I do what I do for that second I hand someone a mirror. That single moment I can show someone how I see them. They always say "you made me so beautiful". I didn't do that. I play with makeup. The beauty was already there, I just get to put some lipstick on it<3
I don't have clients, I make friends. I want to show up to my bookings not as "the makeup artist is here" but "EMILY IS HERE!". I want to build relationships. There is nothing like giving someone confidence back. Showing them how wonderfully perfect their "imperfections" are. Lets make things beautiful!
