About Amy

I began my journey into the beauty industry at 16 after being accepted onto a first of its kind Princes Trust course which introduced me to all aspects of beauty, I instantly fell in love. After the course I decided to further my study’s up to an HND level with West College Scotland, while continuously committing myself to several private courses to enhance my skills in all aspects of the industry. At this time I also began working in cosmetics sales for companies such as Dior, YSL, Estée Lauder and Lancome. At 18 I joined the brand Urban Decay and quickly discovered my passion for teaching others after holding lessons and courses for the brand.

After almost 4 years in cosmetic sales at the age of 19 I decided it was time to finally live my dream of owning my very own business and as it was known before we updated to ByAmy “Amy Wilson Makeup and Beauty” was born! Through my business I have had the pleasure of working with the most wonderful clients and through this I have gotten opportunities I would have never imagined, such as traveling internationally for my clients, holding courses and masterclasses for others within the industry to enhance their own skills, being published in multiple magazines, developing my very own revolutionary facial The Skin By and most recently gaining my CIBTAC level 3 teaching diploma. 

I am currently studying towards my nurses degree!

I’m so excited to introduce my next venture SkinBy – a skincare training academy and skincare line! (you can follow us for all updates at @skinby._ & @trainingby._).
