Hi! I’m Alyson and I’m a Chicago-based 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’ve worked for a variety of Chicago photographers and production companies as well as Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, 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. 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.
In addition to makeup artistry, I have a performing arts background, a Master’s degree in Education (Secondary English) and I’m a Yoga Alliance certified Vinyasa Yoga teacher (RYT 200). You can check www.alysonlyon.net for more.
