A Leading National Makeup Artistry School

Why Choose Chic

The Chic History


Amy Nicole, loving makeup, educates herself in artistry, business, and the beauty industry (3 trips to NYC, Miami, San Diego, and with an eventual move to LA in 2008)


Amy moves to NYC (insert boyfriend/now husband) didn’t want to start all over again building clients that she spent 12+ months working on.

2009 January

In January, Amy has coffee with an old friend (celebrity hairstylist/salon owner in NYC) and is offered to hire her as a freelance makeup artist, but said, very seriously and clearly ‘You don’t really want to do that, do you? Focus on what you DO want!’

2009 February – March

With Amy’s husbands support and rave reviews – Chic Studios School of Makeup started!
