Aliesh Pierce is the author of the textbook Treating Diverse Pigmentation (Milady 2012). Before making the transition to skin care, Aliesh was a freelance makeup artist. After working almost a decade in the fashion industry between New York, Milan and Zurich, she became the personal makeup artist for celebrities in the 90’s like Faith Evans, Queen Latifah, Anastasia, Pink, India.Arie and Ming Na Win. These varied experiences made her adept at working with diverse skin tones.
That expertise carried over into her skin care career when she was commissioned by Volwerk to expand the color range of their personal care brand Jafra Cosmetics International. She ultimately launched the new color range in the US, Italy and Switzerland and continues to produce training videos in Italian for Jafra Cosmetics Italia.
While maintaining a roster of private facial clients, Aliesh continues to support various brands with training, marketing and product development. Through her online beauty portal, AskAliesh.com, she regularly features emerging brands by creating ingredient reviews, skin care articles and makeup tutorials. The member-based Ask Aliesh community is due to launch Fall 2016.
