Amelia Castano Shares Her Story with Aniise
What can you tell us about yourself that our followers might not already know?
I'm very crafty & I used to make jewelry. I love designing something from scratch & I'm very involved with design packaging. I always have a vision of how I want certain products to look. I like to be different and not look like the rest, since I was younger I had a different style, my own.
How did you start in the industry?
I started in the industry 6 years ago when I hired a MUA for the first time for a family photo shoot. She was amazing and it sparked an interest immediately! I wanted to learn for myself the proper techniques to apply makeup but after taking a few makeup seminars I was hooked and I knew this was my niche! I saw incredible opportunities and the potential for growth not only as an individual but as a company as well.
Who and what inspires your style?
I consider myself an old soul. I love classical music. Frank Sinatra puts me in a great mood. I think my style is classy, elegant with a hint of sophistication. I enjoy classy styles like the iconic Chanel that takes you to a different era where elegance was a way of expression. I think women can be sexy without exposing too much. Its hard to find that nowadays but I try to keep that in mind when styling myself.
What is the one Aniise product you can't live without?
