Explore Indie Cambridge - Beauty By Amineh
For some people, their experiences and passions in life come together in the form of a business, and this is definitely the case for Amineh Horrell-Palizdar and her company Beauty by Amineh.
Growing up in Iran, Amineh faced many restrictions most of us could not comprehend. She was a young carer too and, being the amazingly positive person she is, she credits both these things in helping her to become the empathetic person she is today. Amineh has always been the one family and friends turned to when they were getting ready for an occasion to help them to look their best and to feel more confident, and this coupled with a background as an artist, has led to her career as a make-up artist.
After her training, Amineh set up Beauty by Amineh in 2017 – offering bridal, professional brand and photo-shoot make-up services (utilising both classic and air-brush styles), and as a brow artist, she offers highly defined brows and brow lamination. She is also fully-licensed and qualified to offer Microblading – a make-up technique for brows using a super-fine pen (it’s actually a series of tiny needles), to deposit pigment into skin. The tip is so fine it creates hair strokes and the needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, making it semi-permanent – a great way of saving time in front of a mirror every morning!
Amineh’s approach is very much about enhancing features and creating a natural look, and her clients range from brides to be and busy mums through to women in business. Always keen to connect with people, Amineh helps facilitate make-up workshops run by Look Good Feel Better to help cancer patients boost their self-confidence and, in the future, she plans to help people who have alopecia too.
