I first fell in love with the magic of makeup as a young girl in beauty pageants. I remember getting dressed up in gorgeous costumes, extravagantly styled hair and vibrant makeup. I still feel the same excitement of Cinderella turned into a fairy princess when I’m all dolled up. I’m always enthusiastic to do what I do best, making women into enchanted versions of themselves by charming them with beauty.
While studying at the Paul Mitchell Academy here in Las Vegas, I had the privilege of training with the some of the elite in the industry. As a licensed cosmetologist, I use my expertise and education to make the world a more beautiful face.
As a professional makeup artist my life is a series of extraordinary events. Some of the most rewarding experiences in my past 9 years in the industry have involved collaborating with other artists in the community and working to benefit local charities. I love being a part of the reason someone is smiling. You can find me displaying my expertise in the art of beauty by creating the perfect look for all occasions for those visiting Las Vegas. Like I tell my clients “You name it, I’ll make it up!” I haven’t met the client who can stump me. The more unconventional or unique the idea, the more creative I get to be…and that’s why I am the Empress of Beauty Extraordinaire.

Amanda does great work, and she is easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to hire a good make-up artist.
Thank you Amanda Martinez for the make-up work, you are the best and a great friend!!!!!
By far the best MUA in the Valley! I have worked with Beauty Extraordinaire for over three years and I will never stop using this company. Amanda is super detailed and very creative. She has the latest looks down and the traditional make up tips she shared have saved me time and money. Beauty Extraordinaire has provided many services for all my occassions. From Runway Fashion shows to costume make up and as simple as teaching me to tease my hair… I love the work and I appreciate the great service. This MUA Rocks your Blush off!!!
Beauty Extraordinaire went above and beyond all of my expectations and made my wedding day special for myself, my grandmother, mother and maid of honor. My husband and I were married at The Paris on March 10th, 2012. It was already a hectic day and when it came time to do makeup, I was ready to hide in a small corner with a bottle of vodka and drink the day away. Thanks to the Beauty Extraordinaire team, I was able to relax and have a few laughs while they transformed me into a beautiful bride. I absolutely loved my makeup and hair and received so many compliments throughout the day, as well as for weeks to come when our wedding photos were released. I can’t thank B.E. enough for all of their hard work! It is much appreciated.
I have used her a few times for my photo shoots and she is always very professional and fun to work with and the clients (models) love the results!!
This girl is Great. I am from Texas, and why I came to Las Vegas to take family photos, she made me feel really special! She was on time, she used a great make up line, and I have sensitive skin so that is important, and she gave us blotters and lipstick to keep our make up looking great. Very affordable as well. Thank you so much Amanda! I will never forget it!
Amanda made my daughter and me look beautiful for a very special event!
