Ani has had a passion for makeup since she was a little girl. Growing up, she never imagined that this hobby would turn into a lifelong career. She initially completed her bachelors degree in International Relations and Diplomacy which has made her fluent speaking in four languages (English, Armenian, Russian, and Turkish). After landing a job with the Office of Foreign Affairs, she realized that her creativity was being suffocated between cubicle walls. This suffocated feeling, combined with the high demand of friends and acquaintances, requesting that Ani do their makeup and eyebrows for their special events, led her to alter the career path that she had originally decided upon. Over time, Ani stayed loyal to her clientele by offering her services freelance, while completing a masters degree in the Science of Dermatology. She has built a strong foundation by attending some of the top makeup schools in Los Angeles and earned her Cosmetology license as a professional cosmetologist. She has expanded her style as well as her technique through traveling and attending seminars from talented colleagues from around the world. After 10 years of hard work and determination, Ani opened a beauty boutique to accommodate the many needs of her past and future clients. She is a firm believer that style continuously evolves and artists must evolve as well. This theory is the reason that Ani is able to deliver a variety of styles. She is able to create a look that is timeless and classic, or more of a 'statement look' that is unique in nature. Ani's love of learning has led her to also become an educator herself. She shares her techniques through intensive one-on-one intensive seminars or through her four-week classes. She specializes in Permanent makeup as well as HD-makeup for television personalities, models for magazines, and performers in music videos. Above all, Ani is an artist and she loves the beautiful canvases that she calls her clients.
