Elizabeth Amrane (Ahm-Ron) is becoming one of the rising creative forces in the Twin Cities beauty scene. Her work has graced many faces, and she has contributed to numerous weddings, special events and different productions all over the Twin City area. Elizabeth also contributes her expertise in her private studio in Minneapolis, MN.Raised in Minnesota, it was difficult to fathom fashion, art and make-up as much more than what could come from the local mall. After high school Elizabeth found an opportunity to leave her hometown and move to Toronto, Ontario Canada to pursue her curiosity and passion for make-up.  Elizabeth studied at the distinguished school, SOMA – The School of Makeup Art in Toronto and shortly thereafter teamed up with cosmetics giants – Makeup For Ever, Lancôme and Bobbi Brown, to further diversify and hone her aesthetics skills. A difficult route taken by many well-known make-up artists even today; but has proven absolutely crucial to Elizabeth’s development. For 20 years now, she has worked on thousands of skin tones, textures and types, and numerous men and women from every walk of life. What this gave Elizabeth was even more than experience, but an appreciation for every kind of beauty. Her passion for flawless skin and expressive eyes, along with her ability to “think outside the box” has put her in high demand in the Twin Cities market. Today you can find Elizabeth conjuring up new creations in the studio, sweating it out on location, or putting the final romantic touches on a blushing bride-to-be. When she’s not obsessing over lip-glosses or eyebrow hairs, she makes time to travel, keeping her spirit free and her antics fresh with her family and friends.


On her artistry, Elizabeth says “There’s a great feeling of accomplishment when you have someone’s face and trust in your hands, and upon completion – watch them see the creation of the two different worlds of beauty they have… and automatically, they’re addicted.”
