Hi lovelies! I’m Kirsten, the creator of Amplified Cosmetica.
AC began when I was living in Australia 7 years ago, as a page for freelance makeup artistry while working at Mecca. I had always hoped it would grow into something bigger!
I have been a qualified beauty therapist for 11 years, a makeup artist for 9 years and began specialising in skin health 8 years ago.
I am a self-confessed skin nerd, obsessed with timeless makeup looks and curating the best brows for you.
I have managed larger clinics, worked backstage on fashion shows, and have been very lucky to be a part of the award-winning hair and makeup team behind the best musicals to hit Dunedin!
I cannot wait for you to be part of the AC fam and see you in studio soon!
Hello beautiful souls! I’m Bianca and I’ve been working in the industry for 5 years, gaining experience in many different areas.
I am so excited to be apart of the Amplified Cosmetica team and be specialising in my favourite areas, skin health, brows and lash lifts!
It is such a privilege to be part of each clients journey. Whether that be to fuller, fluffier brows, lashes that are curled up to the heavens or to clearer, healthier skin. I love being able to build trust with my clients and provide a safe space to support them through whatever challenges they are facing - giving practical and honest advice!
I can’t wait to meet you all in studio!
Hello, I'm Alyssa!
I have had a passion for makeup and beauty since high school, so much so that I started studying my makeup course whilst finishing NCEA level 3!
I am originally from Auckland, and for many years freelanced alongside my full-time job in real estate. I worked with many wonderful people and artists throughout the years, doing everything from fashion shows to formals, bridal, photoshoots and even special effects! I also do hair styling as a bonus skill!
Now, in Dunedin, I am studying midwifery at Otago Polytechnic and ready to get my hands back on the brushes!
I am excited to start my journey with Amplified Cosmetica and am very excited to meet you!
the ac fan club
Our loyalty system works a little differently.
As we are always working to decrease the impact our studio has on the environment, we have introduced ‘The AC Fan Club’.
So what does this mean?
Well! Any product purchased from our studio, you bring it back!
Once you’ve collected 10 empties, bring them in studio for 10% off a product.If you want to hold out, bring back 20 empties and snap up a Skin Club box filled with goodies to the value of $250!
What happens to the empties?
Thank you for asking! We are teamed with TerraCycleTM, so every empty container gets sent back to them to be recycled. Standard curbside recycling cannot process these containers, so this is our way to reduce our impact in a very wasteful environment.
Hey, I’m Zoe!

I started out as a counter manager for Revlon and have been lucky to work in a multitude of areas over the past years including fashion, tv and film, theatre and freelancing for weddings.
I can't wait to begin creating looks for you lovelies here at Amplified Cosmetica!
