Tanya is great to work with, very professional sweet and an amazing artist! We worked on a fashion shoot together and she slayed my models makeup looks. I would recommend her 100% and will be booking services again!
Tanya did my makeup for an african street fashion shoot. She was quick, clean, and the makeup was PERFECT!! Looking forward to working with her again soon!!
Although I truly loved the makeup and all, one thing that struck me the most was Amelia's personality as a person. She seems to really enjoy was she does and that zeal is reflected in her work; for that reason I would choose her all over again.
Amelia was very nice and a pleasure to work with. A few downfalls were that she went way overtime with my hair and makeup that I missed all my before ceremony wedding photos. I showed her a photo of what I wanted my hair to look like and she was not able to mirror that look on my hair. Her makeup was great and I loved what she was able to do when they came to makeup.
Response from Faces By Amelia:
Good Evening and thank you Sarah for you feedback. I am happy knowing that it was a pleasure for you to work with me and that you enjoyed you also loved your bridal makeup. However, I am very sorry to hear you weren't pleased with your hair styling. I know that the amount of time was the biggest issue and I want to sincerely apologize for you not being unable to take your first impressions photos. I would still like to thank you for allowing me and my team to work with you, your bridal party and family to get ready for your special day. If you are open, I would like to invite you to privately contact me to give me feedback for areas of improvement regarding your hair service. All the best and congratulations again on your nuptials.
Recently I had a high fashion shoot and need an experienced MUA for a pair of models. Tanya immediately came to mind as I'd heard great things but never worked with her. Tanya and I put together a team of stylists and brought on another photographer who'd complement my own styles. Together we implemented a successful photoshoot with powerful images that worked well for all involved. I cannot wait to work with Tanya again.
I recently had Faces by Amelia booked for a photo shoot I had an amazing experience. She has such a talent that us creative, and professional, and consistent. I would definitely book with Faces by Amelia.
What a find! Amelia's professionalism and skills took our video shoot to the next level. She has a keen eye for the perfect amount of make-up needed and for color coordination. She worked hand in hand with Veronica's hair stylist and fashion stylist. Veronica calls the trio her "Glam Squad".
Check out her work in Veronica Brown's upcoming Music Video entitled "MY GOD"
She is such a joy to work with! Her talent is amazing and I always look forward to working with her in future projects!
Excellent makeup artist. Very creative! Makes the photographer's work look great. I enjoyed working with Faces By Amelia and hope to work together again soon.
Fun to work with, great personality, loved the makeup!
We've used her for several shoots, all the girls look A1 every time!! She's always on time and easy to work with, I wouldn't hire anyone else.
I had an mua cancel last minute, but luckily for me Amelia was ready to save the day...this girl should wear a cape! Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but made my face a pleasure to stare at...I seriously could NOT take a bad selfie after she was done! If you're ever in need of a reliable mua with great skills, who is also a joy to work with, look no further!
I was part of a group of girls doing a prom photoshoot. When I arrived to have my make up done, she was already set up and ready to go! She was professional the entire time and was extremely friendly. My make up came out perfectly, and the overall experience was amazing. I would refer her to anyone!
There is no other way to go!! I've penciled FacesbyAmelia as my permanent Halloween costume makeup artist. My first year working with her, I dressed drag and she beat my face so good I thought I was a woman..., and I'm nothin close to it. Her attention to detail and creative precision has captured my request every time. I get up from her chair feeling and looking better than I had imagined possible. She is amazing at what she does, and I refer her to all my friends who need a little magic sprinkled on their face for any event.
This is my very first, but definitely not my last time getting my makeup professionally done for an event. Tanya such a delight to work with! She's very professional and keeps good conversation, I would definitely recommend her!
I'd highly recommend Amelia for your makeup needs. She's fun, she works quickly and the end result is a professional makeup that looks great on camera. As a professional photographer I've worked with many makeup artists. Amelia is one of the best.
On Friday I had my very first shoot with Tanya White of faces by Amelia! It was one of my first modeling affairs and I was very nervous, the location was not what I Anton your way we're expecting that she quickly adapted to the situation and made me feel comfortable! My face was done in a timely matter. I was VERY impressed with how my lips turned out! (Fuller lips can be tricky or over done) tanya made sure she had all the right colors for my Blaine and that her tools were sanitary! I would definitely recommend Tanya for any photo shoot or runway show!
Tanya is great to work with. Positive attitude and great work ethic. Great soul.
I had the pleasure of working with Amelia the make up artist. I was very impressed with her level talent, creativity, and professionalism. She was a joy to work with I highly recommend to call for your special occasion.

I had the pleasure of working with this AMAZING woman. I have had my face made up many of times and NEVER really liked it. The person always made me casket sharp (LOL). I was sooooo pleased with the work she have done EVERYtime. Thank you!
I have had the pleasure of getting my make up done for 3 hair/fashion show's. Everytime my make up was on point! Not to mention my Eyebrows were PERFECT to a T. If I could post a picture of all the different looks I would. LOVED EVERY LOOK. I also had my face painted twice as well. She is also great at thinking of a concept right on spot. My #1 make up artist & would recomend her for any event.

What to Expect
My skill set and ability to work with a variety of skin types and complexions assist me in providing an array of services. I am comfortable with several genres including glamour, commercial print, bridal and fashion. I also have a passion for face/body paint, with a specific interest in Halloween themes. I have worked in studio and outdoor settings and can accommodate to different projects. You can expect prompt responses to you inquiries, pleasant and professional demeanor and quality work. I aim to please! When booking an appointment with a new client I often ask the client to provide reference/inspiration photo of the makeup or face paint look they wish to achieve so that we can visually be on the same page. This also assists me in providing professional and constructive feedback to achieve the best results for the client. I am very creative and open to new ideas, I also take direction very well on sight when working with photographers and directors.
I am an ambitious 26 years young and home grown Phoenician. I grew on the west side of Phoenix in a smaller city of Avondale with my parents and brothers. Growing up was awesome! I had all the support I could ask for and then some. I've always had a joy for art and knew that no matter what career field I found myself, there would be a creative component. At a young age I would paint and doodle daily. By high school I had taken a liking to photography, painting and graphic design. Eventually, those artistic talents led me to creating Faces By Amelia Cosmetic Designs, something I've been very passionate about growing over these last few years. As a Phoenix native I am very much inspired by our street art, beautiful mountain scenery and southwestern culture. All of these inspirations are a representation of myself, as well as depicted in my artistry. When I'm not dedicating my time to my business, I spend my time catching up on politics/social awareness topics and the always entertaining ESPN. I hope to continue to grow and mature in this industry as the Lord's plan permits.
