About Alyson


Hi! I’m Alyson and I’m a Chicago-based hair/makeup artist.  I studied makeup at Makeup First in Chicago (Basic Makeup, Media Makeup, Clinical Makeup, Hairstyling for Makeup Artists).  I’ve done makeup for film, video, headshots,  fashion, print and retail. I also have a Performing Arts background (check www.alysonlyon.net  for more on that end) and I’m a Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Teacher (RYT 200).

I currently work for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in Chicago and have worked for a variety of Chicago photographers and production companies as well as MAC Cosmetics and NARS Cosmetics. My  client list includes: “Restaurant Impossible,”Akoo TV, RMG Mall Media, Whole Foods Market, Santa Fe Productions, Ko-Mar Productions, Gaffney Productions, Esemplastic LLC, Maybelline, Aaron Gang Photography, Towner Photo, Johnny Knight Photo, and Rance Rizutto Photography. In addition to makeup, I also worked Wardrobe for WTTW’s acclaimed “Moochie Kalala.”

Beauty is a fascinating subject; I see beauty in so many places. For me, beauty is: balance, a facet of self-expression, wellness, simplicity, minimalism, creative, natural. Beauty is transformational.
