ANNA - makeup artist / lash + spray tan tech

Hi. I'm Anna Devorah, founder of Devorah Beauty.

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for makeup. As a child I would sort through my mother's makeup, mesmerized by the beautiful colours of shadows and blush, dreaming of the endless opportunities to transform myself into a fairy princess. My mother taught me well, only purchasing Lancôme products and explaining that makeup quality is the key to beautiful application. Today, I use high end products on clients to achieve a flawless finish and to assure them that the quality of the makeup I use suits the caliber of my work.

I have a chic beauty studio in central London which you are welcome to visit by appointment. I have put my heart and soul into creating a welcoming space for our valued clients to meet their beauty needs. We are also able to host wedding parties in our space, and with the beautiful Harris Park foot bridge at the end of our street, it makes for a picture perfect morning.

I am a graduate of The University of Western Ontario with the completed BA of an Honours Specialization of English Literature. My makeup certification is through QC Academy where I received top grades and my Certified International Makeup Professional title. I am a member of The London Wedding Professionals, and have been recognized as an MUA by makeup programs such as MAC Pro, Sigma Beauty Pro Partners, and House of Lashes Pro. I love food and cooking, books, art and interior decorating (and obviously makeup!). I live in Old East Village with my partner, Mike, and our dog, Hawksley (named after the one and only Hawksley Workman), and our cat, Jedi (who we sometimes consider renaming Jabba because she's a liiiil chubs!). Mike is a talented banjo and guitar player - anything strings really,
although he dabbles in percussion - so he is often our in-home
entertaiment! We love traveling and exploring new places, but we are happiest at home, enjoying our backyard and home cooked meals.

AMANDA - makeup artist

Hi! My name is Amanda, makeup artist for Devorah Beauty.

I applied for a position with Devorah Beauty in Spring of 2017.  I had freshly completed my makeup training and was excited to get experience. I was a follower of Anna's on Instagram and her style of application really inspired me. Glowy skin, eyes that pop, and the perfect amount of highlight in all the right places. With a full wedding season now under my belt, I have learned the products and applications that ensure a makeup application looks stunning and lasts all night long.

I completed the Makeup Artistry course from Elegance School in London Ontario in Dec of 2016. My background is in business and administration - however makeup and beauty have always been a passion of mine. My friends always know I'll be the girl with her full face of makeup done for any event! From a young age I was always doing makeup for friends for events or applying lashes on Halloween. I truly enjoy the process of makeup application and love seeing how it can enhance someone's natural features. I would say my style is classic, fresh and polished. I absolutely love making people feel good about themselves and am blessed to be a part of our clients' big days!

I have been married to my husband Mark for almost 3 years, we have a little dog Holly who is spoiled.  I love summertime, am a bit of a health nut and some of my favorite things to do aside from a good gym class would be cooking, travelling or enjoying a good glass of wine with music.

Looking forward to working with you!

Hey guys! I’m Nicole, the newest makeup artist of Devorah Beauty.

When the opportunity arose for me to be a part of Devorah Beauty, it was a no brainer for me! I had been an admirer of Anna’s style for quite some time now and always found her work inspirational. I love the natural, glowy style that Devorah beauty is all about, which is part of the reason I felt it would be a great fit! I also loved the idea of being a part of team of artists who work together to create and support one another as we grow as artists.

I graduated from the school of Elegance here in London last July and dove head first into building my business! I have always had a passion for make up and beauty, but never thought of making it into a career. I was on maternity leave when I made the decision to take the course at Elegance and I am so glad I did! I am so grateful to be doing something I love as a career.

Some fun facts about me: I have a beautiful daughter named Chloe, who is now two years old, and I am happily married to one of the funniest guys I know. One of my favourite parts of being a make up artist is seeing people’s reaction of the final look. It really is the best feeling making people feel great about themselves! I love finishing a look with lashes and I will always and forever love a good nude lip. I’m looking forward to meeting some more Devorah Beauty clients!

My name is Taylor, and I'm the sugar tech for Devorah Beauty!

I have always loved beauty, health and wellness. I myself made the switch to sugaring two years ago and never went back! I loved the whole experience and wanted to learn the skill for myself. It was the perfect opportunity to bring sugaring to Devorah Beauty! I have known Anna for four years and have literally watched 'Devorah Beauty' turn from a concept to a reality. I am so excited to add this service to her lineup! I am currently trained in facial sugaring (brows, upper lip, cheek, neck) thanks to Beauty by Preen. In the future, I plan on expanding my skillset to legs, arms, underarms, bikini, and eventually, brazilians, so stay tuned!

I am currently a student at Western University where I study MIT. I have always loved working with people, so I plan on exploring Public Relations in the future. I serve and bartend part time at Bernie's Bar and Grill in Byron (where I grew up). I have been there since I was sixteen! I love the fast pace and the connections I share with our staff and regulars.

I have a soft spot for animals, especially my dog, Boo, who was hit by a car when she was three. Don't worry - we rehabilitated her and she is better than ever! My family is involved with ARF Ontario, so Boo got lucky. There's often baby squirrels, cats, and foster puppies in my house. It's literally a zoo! But I can't imagine it any other way.

I am so excited to bring this new service to Devorah Beauty and am looking forward to sugaring you!
