Aimee Aviles was born on June 15th in Manhattan, New York. As a child she showed a strong interest in expressing her creativity through all forms of art. She found a creative outlet in drawings and numerous social events where she showcased her knack for makeup artistry. As with many people life happens and Aimee’s dream of a career in makeup was put on hold. In May 2009, when a good friend forced Aimee to make over her look; her love of makeup was instantly reignited.

In April 2014, Aimee took a leap of faith and attended the Ono Beauty School taught by world renowned makeup artist Priscilla Ono. After being a beauty blogger for over five years the transition into makeup artistry was a natural one. Aimee’s extensive product knowledge from running her beauty blog is invaluable when it comes to products to use on her clients. Being able to provide perfectly matched products for each client/event is a prized skill among makeup artists.

Aimee continues to maintain her blog site as well. dBeauty Junkie is updated weekly and has a constant social media presence. Above all Aimee desires to continue her growth in the beauty industry and become one of the go-to beauty experts of her generation.
