Get to know me......

Well where do I begin? Most of you know me as Amrezy on Instagram but my real name is Amra. Amrezy was actually a nickname I got in high school and thought it would be the perfect username for Instagram, who knew it would sound so catchy lol. Lets start with childhood and move on up. I was born in Montenegro (Former Yugoslavia), came here when I was nine years old. I lived in Bosnia and Croatia for a couple of months before moving to the US. I mostly lived in New York majority of my life. I've lived in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. I moved around a lot, and I liked the constant change. Got to meet so many people because of all the different schools I attended. I graduated high school in 2006, tried college out for a couple of semesters and absolutely hated it. I never had an interest for school, would spend most of my time sleeping on the desk lol. As I stated in a previous post I went to Make Up Designory beauty school shortly after graduating high school. I didn't learn much and it was a total waste of time, good thing I didn't depend on school to teach me things. I ended up learning everything through life experience. Ive always been self efficient, didn't wait around for anyone to hand me favors. If I wanted something I would go for it, nothing stopped me. One of my strongest characteristics has been being persistent, I would break through walls if I had to. I always loved pushing limits, I guess I'm a daredevil in some kind of way. If everyone else was going right I would go left, thats just in my nature. I was raised by strict parents. They provided me everything but were super tough on me most of the time. I couldn't always see eye to eye with them when I was younger so I moved out when I was 23. Best decision I've made so far. It taught me responsibility, courage and perseverance. I went through some really hard times, at certain points I didn't even have money to eat. Lived with my boyfriend and both of us struggled together. Sometimes I look back and think how did we even make it? Through each others support we were able to learn from our mistakes and apply to our future endeavors. I especially grew a lot through the struggle, it changed me as a person. Not only did it make me humble but it taught me to appreciate every moment, and I knew I never wanted to relive the bad times ever again. Now I appreciate the smallest things, being able to pay bills and not go broke. I am truly grateful to be in the position I am today, I'm not rich but I am comfortable and that's all I can ask for. If more comes then great but if it doesn't I am happy knowing I am in a better place then where I was a couple of years ago. Money isn't everything, yes it does pay the bills and supply a certain lifestyle, but some of the richest people are more miserable then you can imagine. There is so much more I want to write but it be would never ending lol, so I will finish off by saying you never really know where you will end up. If you have a dream go for it, other peoples opinions shouldn't matter. Life is so much better when you follow your own instincts.

  1. OMG Amra!! My favorite post thus far!!!
    I got inspired by the Kevyn Aucoin books back in 1998. Went to Makeup school in Hollywood, I too learned the super super basics for thousands. Thankfully Dad was generous enough to pay for the course. After that I did a independent film that probably didn't make the theaters let alone DVD!!
    I then landed a job at plastic surgeons office in 2002. Kinda losty passion because Hollywood can be tough and really bad on your self esteem (I was 19).
    I needed up getting my Esthetician license and had more steady work and decent pay.
    I'm now at Ritz-Carlton, Downtown LA as the lead Esthetician and Makeup Artist.
    It's been a long journey but a fruitful one!
    Even tho I'm 10 years your senior and have been doing makeup for 15years, you inspire me with your confidence , style and personality!
    And you have a beautiful body GF, don't let these weirdos tell you you aren't! Xoxoxo

    3. Omg rezy, I am so going through the same struggles as you, sometimes I even feel like giving up, this you wrote you don't even know how much is encouraging of not to give up, I don't like school either I hate it, my passion have always been beauty, and I hope that just like you I make it. Can you please share tips on how to start.

  5. Amra, I have grown to really like reading your blog. This one, I really liked, because I can relate to much of it from when I was younger, even today. It is true, money isn't everything, but being broke is no fun either. I guess we have to strike a balance. I hope you will continue writing a blog. I appreciate seeing a young lady who listens to her own heart and goes for what she wants and doesn't care what others think.

  9. Love this! I too am from former Yugoslavia (born and raised in Bosnia). I am now living in AZ and I really enjoy following you on IG. I have to say, it is very awesome to see someone with the same/similar ethnic background succeed. The day your palette came out, I had to get it within the first couple of hours just to show my support. Congrats on all your success and I wish for more success for you, your family and your boyfriend in the future.

    2. You can tell you don't even bother to read the comments that these people put their heart into. For example this woman tells you she's from where you were born & lived where you did yet you don't say a word like "wow were from the same place" lost my interest

I agree that dreaming and striving for those dreams are sooo important! I own a baby boutique that has been a dream if mine for years!Now I really want to break out of just being a "baby boutique" I'd love to send you and Norvina head pieces from our shop, you guys are my fav people on IG!! Our shop is @becausepinkdesigns. I'd love to email you more info.

  21. I have been watching you grow and I have always admire the strength you always portrayed. That to me was so beautiful about you, that not matter how awful comments you always stood there bigger and more beautiful than better. I admire you so much, I wish you much more success and may god keep blessing you! Thank you for sharing your story. You are beautiful, inside and out. Lots of love! The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.

  25. I totally agree with you. Having to struggle in any part of your life will humble some but not all. Some still believe money is the key to happiness, and they will never be happy.
    I get by with Husband and 3 kids, but I don't let money get to me.
    You are an inspiration to us all. Icould see you going far.
    The Best part about you isn't your beauty but how to take time to remember the little people, your fans, and supporters. To let us in your circle.

  27. Love the blogs! I feel that I can get to know you and your personality this way! "Like totally" haha (your video voice) As I read each one of your sentences I feel like I'm telling my story.. Although I was raised by my mom who was also strict, so everything I was told to do... I wanted to learn on my own. I've always wanted to be independent! I use to trip out on how single moms could support 2+ more kids and still shop I mean food stamps can only go so far! I don't have kids..lol I wanted to move out so bad with my boyfriend He worked here in Beverly Hills as a photographer and we'd drive up and down wilshire asking our selves how can we live here and still maintain the lifestyle we love. We'll guess what! We found an amazing apartment last year here in Beverly Hills and now I do hair and make up in BH and he's a photog still! Mind you I'm 22 now! You are such an inspiration from beauty to fashion! I've followed you since day 1 of your MAC days & cold ass weather in NYC! I also worked for MAC it was my dream until I actually did and was always worried about my AUS Rather then really being able to focus on my passion. Girlbye! nobody wants to be closing on weekends trying hurry up and shave the lipsticks and wash my brushes so we can get out! LOL THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU! I can keep going on. I live in BH right next to Anastasia I hope to meet you one day! Xxx Jaz!

  31. Zdravo zenska :) love thar you have a blog. So we can learn more about the girl behind the glamorous makeup. I can relate as my parents are from former Yugoslavia, Macedonia. But I was born and raised in Australia. I dont see eye to eye either most the time. I stumbled across your Instagram way back when you started out and I was a big fan since. Still check out your insta as your makeup style is my style of makeup I love. Some people think its "too much" like "oh hi i didnt recognise you without all that makeup" but whats the point in wearing makeup then if it cant be all or nothing? Hehe. I am fresh faced most of the time and very confident without it, thats why I love that you also post makeup free selfies to. Down to earth and real. Xx

  33. My name is Pricilla I'm 23, from Woodbridge, VA.

    Arma, thank you for sharing your story. Sometimes it hard to believe that people come from a struggle when you see their success. I wish that I can be like you , persistent. I'm not though, I'm a single mother of two children and work from paycheck to paycheck it's the most horrible feeling because I want to be able to do better. I'm currently a student at a community college and actually will graduate with an associates at the end of fall semester. I will then attend a great university called Greoge Mason Unverisity, but even after the struggle of doing well and being a mom and holding a full time job, my brother being very sick, I'm not happy. I use to be in beauty school in high school and loved it didn't finish and then I wanted to attend again but then I let that dream go because then I had bills and kids to focus on so I felt at that time beauty school would not get me anywhere! Now I know that's not true but then I have people always constantly changing my mind saying well your better off finishing college you will be set! But then I hate my job with a passion I never fit in because how my hair and makeup is done everyday the only time I have fun is when I'm getting ready and I just dread it everyday!!! I mad at myself because I don't understand why I don't take the risk I'm a hard worker and have always been and when you put your heart, mind, and hard work into something you do well. The only time I love a job was when I worked at Sephora part time I felt so happy in that environment it's like that best feeling!!!! I never feel that way about anything else that work related! You inspire me in every way your makeup styles are absolutely phenomenal!!! I just I can grow more of a driven mind like you one it's just hard when life is a struggle everyday and no one is there for any support you! So lately I been really irritated with my job and everything and just been thinking to attend beauty school once I graduate this fall. Arma I hope when day you may come to VA or the District of Columbia (DC) to teach or show some of your techniques. I don't really do much traveling because it's not in my budget now but it would be awesome to see more Makeup Artistry. If you can check out my IG page I would be grateful @pemelizabeth. Thank you again for you story Arma you truly are an amazing person.

    Take Care ��

    1. Give yourself some credit. You're a single mother raising your child on your own. That's amazing and I commend you. Not everyone can do it. Its never to late to follow your dreams, maybe when your child gets older you can start pursuing your passion. It took me a while to actually enter the world of makeup, so don't feel discouraged. Also I remember living paycheck to paycheck, as I said there was many times I didn't have money to eat. Nothing stays the same forever and you will pull through this difficult time. Its never too late, and you will end up living your dreams. You have to believe in yourself. I wish you nothing but happiness and success. xoxo :))

    Love your name I am sure it means beautiful woman. My name is Sulay and when people ask me what it means I always say beautiful woman and they go wow! Then I tell them it doesn't really have a meaning but that is what it means to me....lol!! I wrote you that little story to tell you that it is amazing to find a woman that feels beautiful, and is not afraid to show it, to have charisma and to love yourself is probably what makes a woman more beautiful than the rest of them sometimes is not beauty itself is that" Je ne sais quoi"..I love making woman beautiful. The power of makeup to make some people feel secure to go and get that job or to go and stare themselves in the mirror. ...I am glad you here... I think your talent is going to be inspiration for a lot if future artists in the business. ...keep the great work.
    And stay sweet and beautiful!

  45. Hi Amra,
    I am learning the basics in makeup and I came across your Instagram profile one day, and fell in love. You're so talented and I hope to one day be as good as you. Your Amrezy palette with Anastasia Beverly Hills has interested me since the day I saw it. I never really had the chance to get it, and I failed to see that it was limited edition. I was wondering if it will be making a comeback or if there's any place you know of that I can get my hands on it. It would be my first set of shadows and I would love for them to be yours. Thanks so much. Xoxo

  49. Amra, predivna si!! :* I make sure to always write that on your fierce pics, lol. I like this about me post, it's really down to earth. I want to go to medical school so no makeup background here but I love your IG page and will follow this blog. To people who say you initially look stuck-up- I would rather have a thick exterior and show a shitload of confidence if it means getting to where I need to be. Total respect for that because I'm learning that you can't stand out in life unless you are willing to be fearless. The part about money not being everything but at the same time it is everything when you're struggling-too true. I'm 24 and from Bulgaria, came to New York age 8 and finally am making the complicated decision to move out. Although I am so close to my parents, they won't understand some of my choices any time soon and the old school European mentality doesn't help btw in terms of dating outside of culture. So props to doing you! Your image/confidence is everything and although I'm a science nerd, that actually inspires me to persevere and quit doubting my abilities. It's so hard when you feel you can't catch a break or compare yourself to more entitled people. Coming from where we are from, it means so much to finally be successful. Anyways I hope your bad bitch streak stays strong!!!! :) Lots of love from an NY follower and best of luck always

    ReplyDelete
  50. This post is just amazing, thanks for it. It confirms that yes, everything is possible if we want to struggle to aim our goals. I've always wondered where your self-confidence was from but I know now. You're strong, really strong and I really like the fact that you share few tips with us. Thanks again !

If you really want something bad enough and work hard you will achieve it. Thanks to you, I'm finally following my dreams and passion in what I really want to do. Past 6 years I've been so miserable at a job I hate with a passion. But now it's time for me to do what I want and everything so far is falling into place. Reading your story pushes me even more. Thank you for sharing your story and inspiring myself and a lot of girls to become and do what they want, and of course to always stay real and humble. Love you amerzzy! Wish you the best with everything you do and keep going! And love your pallet btw lol it's amazing! It's become a staple in my makeup collection. You should totally come out with a lipstick or lip gloss collection just saying lol

  64. You're absolutely gorgeous! And such an inspiration! I grew up exactly the same with parents from Macedonia and their old school mentality. Hard work and drive definitely conquers all!

  65. This truly inspired me! I'm a junior in highschool and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, which can be so stressful! I also lived on the east coast( New Jersey) and recently moved to San Diego .. It was a big transition .. Reading this made me realize I can be anything I put my mind to & to appreciate even the small things! Thank you Amra! Xo

  68. I started using ig when it was barley becoming popular.. You are deff the first make up artist I started following. I seen someone "liking" your picture and even thou I have always loved make up your talent made me realize what I wanted to do with my life. You have touched and inspired so many women regardless their age, ethnicity, etc. And even do I haven't been able to start my dream of becoming a makeup artist due to my current situation living paycheck by paycheck, living with a single mother and having to help out. I just turned 23 this summer, I went to college for a few semesters but I didn't feel like I was going anywhere. But I have to admit my biggest issue had been the lack of confidence. All I hope for is that one day I will look back and say I made it. Your story has truly touched me and made believe it's possible but it takes a lot of persistence. Thank you for sharing your personal experiences, and for being you. I really admire you, you have everything a real woman needs beauty inside out! Love your style, your talent and your personality even thou I don't know you, keeping up with your ig makes me feel like I do lol. Everytime I see haters I laugh and think to myself , wow I love everything she does from make up to fashion etc how can someone hate on that? What kind of taste do they even have that they hate on her?. Then I answer myself with the same answer. I'm certain they must be very jealous they can't be you ;) Haters are your biggest admires. And admiring you the positive way(being a fan like me) is not wanting to be you, but being inspired to add a great taste of style to our own lives. Thank you!!!

  69. Wow I am inspired by you dear I would start believing in myself cos I have a problem with that but u have given me hope. Thanks babe

  70. That was very inspiring for me as a new cosmetologist (2yrs) I've grown so much , I've always been really good at makeup and you and so many others too many to name.. bring out the best in my talent. But I'm nervous to really put myself out there. . ���� insta @Tierrrajanelle419

  71. Ok you made me cry reading this! I'm a cry baby. Lol!! You truly inspire me. I have been doing make since I was 18 I am 35 now but have allowed fear to get in my way. Which has limited myself to get to the next level! I love your pics on IG I never get tired of them and seeing your beautiful face. But to put yourself out there knowingly there will be mean ppl scares me! That is one thing that scares me. I see so many younger artist than me doing it, taking chances and yet I'm scared. I love everything you stand for gives me that little bit of hope not to give up, as much as I want to! Because I see myself fading away from it convincing myself "I'm not made for this." I don't think you'll remember but once I posted on your IG that I had a dream about you. In the dream we become friends and I asked you why did ppl hate on your and say you where are bitch. That you are nothing like that. I met your boyfriend at the Dallas Make-up Show I was so scared to ask him if you where in town. I finally asked him but sadly he said you where not in town. As a stranger & and fan I am truly happy for your success! I wish you nothing but much more!!! ����

  74. BLOWN AWAY when reading your touching story! It takes a lot of courage to share these difficult moments with your fans. It proves that you're a strong woman who was not born to break but only to breakthrough! In French we say CHAPEAU!

  92. I already follow you on Instagram & snap chat but to learn a lil about you knowing that you struggled at first but didn't let that stop you is inspiring. A lot of people think that school is the only way & you obviously proved its not. You do what you love, you are with the one you love. You guys stuck through the ups & downs shows the type of person you are! That's why I follow you because of the person you are even though I don't know you completely. I'm cheering for you girl!

  95. Hey amrezy, my name is Aveena I'm such a fan of yours. honestly you are one of my biggest inspirations. I am currently in that position of dealing with strict parents who won't let me make my own decisions but I am slowly learning what you have already learned which is to follow your heart. I also went to college and tried other multiple careers but I realized it isn't what I wanted to do in life. I am still finding my way but hearing your story pushes me further to get out there and figure out what I want to do. I'm so happy you made it because your story shows many girls with similar situations like you and I that anything is possible and to never give up. God bless you Amra! Thank you for sharing your story!

    God bless you Mum, I will not stop telling the world about your kindness in my life, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Mrs.Rachel Alex, and I am from Singapore . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now,She advised I give it a try so I mailed her and explain all about my financial situation to her, she therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $180,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 3% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule, please contact MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE via email{mrsirenequery@gmail.com}
