Professional Makeup

In 1999, Lisa Thurman and Sue Katz founded AmazingCosmetics. With a shared passion for makeup the pair had always felt that a woman’s complexion should not just be treated in the skincare process but with her cosmetics as well. They agreed that with a perfect canvas every woman could go without much else and still look flawless.

They decided to combine their business sense and makeup knowledge and pioneer their own brand starting with what has now become their iconic, hero product, the AmazingConcealer. Beloved by fans across the globe from everyday women to professional makeup artists and their celebrity clients.
