Hello my name is Amber Raffele and I've been doing Makeup for 3 years. I do free-lance makeup at Moda 330 a salon, I've done weddings, sweet sixteen's, natural looks, birthday parties, etc., for Beauty Makeup. What I've been trying to make my way up in is special FX makeup. When Halloween comes around I love painting and doing scars, blood, zombie, and just around creepy makeup. I do face painting for parties and I also volunteer for haunted attractions, fashion shows, and face paintings with Santa. I love to help people, I do it for the fun and the joy of makeup. I want to keep learning and improving in special fx makeup because I love the fact that you can change someone's look into a completely different person. This is my compassion, art, and love; I can not wait to see how far I've become in the next year or two.
I started really getting into makeup my Senior year of high school. I graduated in 2013 from JFK High school I was a self taught makeup artist for 2 years . I became a certified Makeup Artist and got my Certification with Glamlab NYC in 2015 along with another certification from the Mario Dedivanovic celebrity Makeup Artist Master Class in NYC. I've learned from YouTube channels, and another Makeup Artist Kassandrae, She was my mentor for makeup and really helped me improved my work.
I do a lot of face paint and special fx makeup on myself for practice. I normally do full face beauty makeup on a daily basis. Depending on the time of year and seasons I do kids face panting and special fx makeup. I've worked on Models before for big events. My specially would include special FX.
