Asante Artistry is about unveiling the confidence that is inherent in us all. Makeup is an art that should be used to showcase the client through the skills, patience and attentiveness of the Artist.
My name is EJ Asante and I love make-up.
My passion to work as a make-up artist was not something I realized at an early age. I am a Ghanaian American,and makeup in Ghanaian culture is not seen as a respectable profession. I was first exposed to makeup my senior year of high school. I bought a MAC pressed powder that was the wrong shade of course, but I loved it. Throughout university that love grew, I started doing the makeup of my friends and family.
Years later, as a Makeup Artist I have helped brides glow on their special day, business women re-brand their image and fashion houses launch social media campaigns. I love the creativity of make up, it feeds my soul and it is my life's calling to impress that joy on everyone I work with.
I started Asante Artistry to highlight the beauty of all races but especially those who are underrepresented in the fashion and beauty industry.
