As an industry veteran with over a decade of experience, Amanda has successfully navigated her way through many different facets of the beauty landscape. Amanda’s love for all things beauty - especially hair and makeup, began in childhood as she pursued this passion as a career earning a cosmetology license immediately after high school. As a budding makeup artist, Amanda worked across the country with brands such as Smashbox, Bare Escentuals, Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier and Trish McEvoy. While traveling as a makeup artist she was able to work with clients from coast to coast, educate consumers and other beauty experts about the industry and visit numerous counters, salons and boutiques.
As she traveled the country, Amanda was struck by the number of clients who asked about the ingredients found within their cosmetics and began to research the topic to better address these inquiries. It was startling to discover many cosmetic ingredients were not regulated. This finding prompted Amanda to craft her own organic skincare and body care products at home while also working to identify brands that truly contain natural and organic ingredients. In 2013, Amanda opened VERT beauty, a Denver-based boutique and e-commerce site that offers consumers a wide selection of handpicked natural and organic products.
When Amanda is not at the boutique, she is enjoying spending time with her husband and daughter Vivian, and getting as much rest as possible before their new bundle of joy arrives.
Jessica began her career in the beauty industry in 1995 in a white lab coat, travelling to major department stores supporting Clinique. From there she expanded her knowledge of luxury beauty brands at Saks Fifth Avenue working for Lancome, Guerlain, Bobbi Brown, Peter Thomas Roth and Laura Mercier. In 2004 Jessica focused her makeup artistry and extensive product training on freelancing for Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Chanel and Shu Uemura.
In 2010 Jessica returned to the department store environment with Nordstrom, starting up again with Clinique and then moving up to managing the Advanced Skin Care department. Jessica’s natural ease with customers and extensive knowledge of every brand in the department led her to become a Brand Ambassador for La Mer and Jo Malone London.
Through listening to clients Jessica began to follow a path into non-toxic beauty. Questions about ingredients struck a chord deep within and a thirst for knowledge began. Jessica has found amazing satisfaction from bringing years of beauty experience into an environment that esteems high performing non-toxic ingredients and luxurious experience.
When Jessica isn’t helping her clients look and feel their pretty, polished best she’s trying to keep up with her 3 cute kiddos and husband.
