The Art of Complexion

Celebrating 7 years of AJ Crimson Beauty, The Art of Complexion takes a deeper look at AJ's journey to not only allow women to see their natural beauty in their everyday life but to share those tools he's learned along his journey.

AJ’s strong commitment to excellence and willingness to learn has been key instruments in paving the way for his success. Self-taught as a makeup artist, AJ fell in love with giving women the tools and permission to fall in love with themselves again by helping them find their true beauty both outwardly and from within. Through those experiences, AJ learned several invaluable lessons and built his brand on the concept of, “it’s not about restructuring your face, but enhancing what you already have. The client is always the STAR! The makeup is the co-star!” Setting out on his own to enhance the lives of women on a broader scale, he ventured into the world of entrepreneurship and never looked back.

A decade later, AJ’s work has been featured in fashion, beauty and music magazines worldwide including Vogue, Glamour, Marie Claire, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Essence and leading Japanese Entertainment magazines Blenda and Luire. He has also had the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the business including Pat McGrath for Paris Fashion Week and was delighted to have a hand in creating cutting edge beauty techniques under the masterful instruction and eyes of makeup impresarios Joann Gair and Mathu Anderson.
