This is me, Aya Hamed! You may recognize me from Youtube, because that’s where it all started. My passion for everything beauty. Ever since I was 16 years old, I fell in love with makeup. I would apply green eyeshadow all the way to my brow bone and my mom would give me the scare stare, and I was so confident that it looked amazing. It was too funny! Over the years I kept playing with makeup, and practicing by applying it on my close friends. After I got married I decided to share my looks on Youtube. I would stay up until 3 am to perfect a winged eyeliner. I was so determined to get both eyes perfectly the same. I also started freelancing; at that time I was known as “Beauty By Aya”. My specialty was creating Arabian/Indian bridal looks.
Upon finishing my education in Pharmacy, I realized that it wasn’t for me so I decided to head into the “beauty” retail world. You know how the retail world is, some places are great but some places just want to bring you down. The best experience in retail was defiantly MAC cosmetics. I learned how to work with darker skin tones and how to apply foundation flawlessly. I also enjoyed being a counter manager for Anastasia Beverly Hills. I got trained by the amazing Michael, Anastasia’s right hand. He taught me everything about brows from, how to choose the perfect brow pencil, to how to properly wax and shape brows
Now that I have perfected, waxing, shaping and filling brows, I thought I would take the next level. Permanent Makeup that is! I decided to take a course at LASH FOREVER CANADA to learn how to do Nano Brows also known as feathering technique. People started booking and trusting me with their face! From there I knew this is what I wanted to do for a living! I expanded my knowledge by attending MICRO PIGMENTATION CENTRE TORONTO, and Shay Danielle Academy Online to learn eyeliner, lip blush, and powdered brows. I also attended Tattoo & Piercing School of Canada to learn how to do small dainty tattoos and body piercing. I will continue to learn something new every single day. I believe in continuous education, to better skills and techniques. I love to travel and meet master permanent makeup artist and attend important conferences
Over the past couple of years I met clients with alopecia, cancer, hypothyroidism, and horrible health issues. Having clients telling me that I have changed their life for the better brings me so much happiness and reminds me why I love waking up and going to work! I truly love my job as a permanent makeup artist!
