‘Pearypie’ Amata Chittasenee – Thai Makeup Artist

Amata Chittasenee is a young Thai Makeup and Theatrical Artist. Born 1988 in Thailand, she was raised in Bangkok. Although I could not find confirmation, I guess (judging from her appearance) that she might be half-Thai or of mixed origin. Her nickname is ‘Pear’ and thus she is also referred to as Pearypie.

Pear’s mother is a well-known business woman and her family belongs to Thailand’s high society. Pearypie studied six years in the UK where she graduated in 2011 with a BA degree in Performance and Practice at the University of Arts, London. Before that she went to Central St. Martins representing the college at V&A museum, the UK Design for Performance exhibition in 2007.

Already in 2009-2010, she was engaged in performance collaborations at Cochrane Theatre. At first she worked with the Peter Williams Design for Dance and afterwards she also took part in the Demonstration Demolition project.

Pear has gained some multi-cultural experiences and combined with her Thai background, she creates her own amazing style and art. Generally, she is very much interested in and concerned with the relationship between audience and performer, preferring unusual settings. She also does Thai make up styles that go with traditional Thai dresses as illustrated in the following video clip. I very much like this look and the video is elaborate and beautiful 🙂

Hence, Amata has become an accomplished makeup artist, even though she has not attended makeup school. Since her teens, Pear is in love with makeup, beauty secrets and experimenting with how makeup can transform and beautify women. Her makeup looks range from natural to classic and experimental. In this clip, for instance, she creates a dramatic evening look.

Thus, today Pear is gaining a lots of fans on social media and she is also a famous beauty guru on Youtube. She does a lot of makeup tutorials, most of them are commercials for cosmetic companies like Urban Decay, Maybelline, Illamasqua, Laneige and many more.

For instance, she comes up with a bold and experimental makeup style for Nikon which she calls ‘Dollypie’. The special feature of this look is that it features pink eyebrows 🙂

This is certainly a very extravagant look revealing how Pear regards makeup as an art form and takes it beyond the given themes. I think this is what makes her so special and extraordinary. I have just subscribed to her YT channel and I’m really curious about her future projects.

Finally, we may claim that Pearypie is an exceptional young lady who is talented and versatile in creating makeup looks. She is a great ‘Beauty Influencer’ and has the ability to transform herself amazingly with the help of make up.

Traditional Thai Make Up Style and Look

Today I’d like to focus on the topic of ‘Traditional Thai Make Up’. However, I must say right at the start that I could not really figure it out whether there is actually a kind of ‘official’ make up look that is considered traditional in Thailand.

Nonetheless, I’ve found some information on how to create make up looks that go well with the style of traditional Thai dresses. As you probably remember from my articles on traditional Thai dresses, these gowns are very beautiful, colourful, extravagant and sometimes also opulently embroidered. Hence, a fresh, natural make up look with predominantly light colours goes best with these kind of Thai dresses which are mostly worn on formal occasions and ceremonies like weddings.

In the following, I’d like to show you some examples of the traditionalistic Thai make up look and the hair style which is worn with this make up.

I think you will notice that these make up looks are relatively decent, using mostly natural and light rosy colours. Thus, these make up styles provide a glowing and radiant look. There are no bold shades used in these make up styles so that they do not ‘outshine’ the beautiful opulent Thai traditional dresses that are worn with these looks.

I’ve found a nice video by JAS production showing you in detail how to create such a traditional Thai makeup look. However, this video is only in Thai language and there are no English subs but I think it’s easy to follow just by watching 🙂

In this video, the make up artist focuses on a flawless complexion and creates an earthy-brown smokey eye. In addition, false lashes are applied to enhance the look. In the pictures above, the women also wear artificial lashes as far as I can tell. Thus, I think that false lashes complete the traditional Thai make up look. However, in the video the eye make up is generally stronger than in the photos shown here. Nevertheless, the rosy blush completes the look as well as the rosy nude (light rosewood) shade of the lips. In the video and in the pictures the lip make up is completed by some lip gloss on top for extra shine. In addition, this make up style is also connected with Thai beauty ideals in general.

If you like this look, I recommend you check out my post about Pearypie – Thai Makeup Artist because she also creates this kind of style among others.

Summing up, we may say that a traditional Thai make up look is radiant, using predominantly light and natural colours. What is more, the focus is on the eyes so that artificial lashes are a must to complete this look. Do you like this make up style? I think it’s very pretty and stunning. However, it’s not too flamboyant and I will definitely try it out myself 🙂
