Jami Svay (pronounced s-why) believes having your
makeup done is more than just lashes and liner. Its beauty therapy.
She excels at finding and highlighting a clients best
feature. "If I can make someones day by making them
look good, then so be it," she says.
The makeup artist and creator of Tastee Cosmetics, a
national line of organic lip products, has been in the
beauty business for more than 10 years, working in
salons, as a cosmetics representative and as a model.
She decided to forgo college dreams of being a fashion
designer once she realized that makeup artistry combined her love of color and fine art.
Building on a personal philosophy of "Everyone has
something beautiful, just enhance it," Svays impressive
client roster belies her versatility. She has worked on a
range of celebrities, including Brooklyn Decker and Michael Jordan.
Svay has traveled to New York, Atlanta, Miami and Los
Angeles to do makeup on editorial spreads and runway
She has done work for Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Perry Ellis, Essence and Real Simple magazines, among others.
