Talented, passionate and enthusiastic, sought-after celebrity makeupartist Jami Svay (pronounced s-why) began her beauty career more than 15 years ago once she realized that makeup artistry would be an artistic outlet that combined her passion for color and fine art. Building on her personal philosophy of "Everyone has something beautiful, just enhance it,” her signature look is to not only cover up flaws but to enhance one’s natural radiance. Notwithstanding, her style can be described as a diverse, with looks ranging from fresh skinned girl next door to vintage sex kitten.
Jami has collaborated on countless editorials, ad campaigns and red carpet looks for celebrities, all of which showcase the skill, talent, personality and attention to detail that she brings to every transformation. Her celebrity clientele includes Meghan Trainor, Brooklyn Decker, Angie Harmon and Michael Jordan, to name a few.
Internationally renown, Jami has worked the faces that strut the runways of the world’s fashion capitals. Some of her notable work include shows of iconic fashion brands Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Billy Reid, CALLE and Rodarte and ad campaigns for Perry Ellis, Laura Ashley, and Peter Millar, amongst others. Moreover, the North Carolina native is often in demand of her makeup expertise by acclaimed magazines, landing her features on Essence Magazine, Uptown Magazine, Sheen, Southern Living, Redbook, Ellements Magazine, Fox News.
The dexterous makeup artist has also proved business savvy with the creation of Tastee Cosmetics, a national line of all natural lip products designed for QVC.
When Jami is not traveling between LA, NYC and Miami, she is at home with her husband and two kids. As far as her personal cosmetic weapon of choice, Jami feels nothing makes her feel more complete than lip gloss — “I shall be buried with a tube of it!”
