I’m Ashley

Follow me on my social feeds @beautybyashleyvela

A Chicago based Makeup Artist. Actively working in the beauty industry. I was raised in Wheeling, Illinois a small connected town right outside of Chicago. I began my beauty career in 2012. Inspired to ignite my creative role as a makeup artist by completing course at Haskana Institute of Cosmetology and Muse Beauty Pro in Chicago. As long as I can remember I have remained fascinated in the art of being a creative living in this crazy lovely world. By nature I enjoy absorbing style, music, patterns, arts, dance, food, volunteering both in my community and on a one on one basis. When it comes to my hustle, If I’m not working on a onsite project or traveling for my role as a educator with Japonesque, I see clients in the Beauty Room right inside of Ninety West Beauty Lounge located in the Jefferson Park neighborhood.

Down time is important, it’s what matters to me most. It gives me the recharge, grit and hustle to learn more. Most of my down time you’ll find me at home or on the go with family or friends. Either trying to figure out dinner option’s, balancing time ( because I find ‘time’ being so precious ) and routine with my amazing Fiance + our two ambitious kids. They are my kind of people, we like to have fun, party and embrace being together.

Before I side track and end on a true passion I like to mention a little about my beauty services. The experiences is laid back and pampered. I am mindful of my role, so strive on being efficient, personable, convenient. This is my favorite type of artistry, being service and skill driven.

I mentioned volunteering above, I am going to elaborate just a little because this to is very important to me for many reasons both inside and out for myself and others. These are the “ tribes “ that have chosen me and opened new purposes in my journey. Two organizations I choose to stand beside, believe in and continue to service with. For curiosity purposes I have attached links below. Click on the name of the organization for further information.

Thanks for your the time. Hope to connect!
