Who is Amanda Ensing?

Amanda Ensing is an American beauty influencer who is active on YouTube, Instagram and other social platforms. She was born on 4th September 1991 in the United States.

Early life and career of Amanda Ensing

After high school, she applied to the University of Tennessee, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Business Administration. Amanda was always busy and liked to participate in school activities. She was a part of many college societies like Alpha Chi Omega, YWCA, and Relay for Life or Knoxville Catholic charities. Her first jobs were mainly about marketing, as she was really good at it. Right after graduation, she started working for Hickman, Gray & Associates as a legal assistant. After that, she worked as a sales assistant at a Nike shop but decided to leave to follow her passion for makeup. The right choice turned out to be Sephora, where she also worked as a sales assistant. Being daily surrounded by makeup made her think about a career in the same industry.

Amanda Ensing on YouTube

Amanda created her YouTube channel while still working at Sephora in 2012. Since she was a long-time fan of the Kardashians, her first-ever video was a makeup tutorial inspired by Kim Kardashian. She stayed consistent and posted videos every other week, whether it was makeup tutorials or reviews, and she was slowly getting more attention. But the video that went viral and started her journey as an influencer felt like destiny. The video is called How To Get Kim Kardashian Definition, which is basically the same topic she discussed in her first video.

Besides celebrities’ makeup tutorials, Amanda is interested in many topics and likes to share them with her audience. One of her series is dedicated to home decorations, where she shows off her beautiful themed decorations for all seasons and occasions: Christmas, Spring and Halloween. Amanda improved her skills in applying base makeup, meaning foundation, contouring and powder, to the next level. Another series of hers is called Easy Makeup Tutorials, where she explains everything that is needed for the smooth airbrushed finish. She can help you find your right shade of foundation, teach you where to put highlighter to look natural and remind you how important skincare is.

Is Amanda Ensing a Trump supporter?

Same as she was in College, Amanda cares about the world around her and what is happening in it. She likes to be informed and later inform her fans on topics that are important to her. Another series of hers is called Iced Coffee & Inspiration, where she advises people to find their inner peace and to ask God for help if needed. Some people were excited about her opinions and praised this series. Amanda felt like she could be herself and talk about whatever she wanted and, in addition to that, help people.

This might be how her newest series came to life. She started a series called Liberty Before Lipstick, which is on point. Those videos are usually 30-40 minutes long. Amanda does her makeup as usual and talks about controversial topics, which are mostly political-themed. She is a supporter of the conservative party and is ready to question everything that stands in the way of it. Amanda is strongly religious and likes to speak of her faith, too: she basically created a safe space for like-minded people. Some of her followers left her because of this change, but she gained more viewers with the same opinions.

Personal life of Amanda Ensing

Amanda met her boyfriend, Rafael Maio when she attended a Halloween party in 2016. They fell in love and have been dating since then. Around 2021, people started asking about their relationship, mainly why aren’t they married yet. Amanda stated that due to her past experience, she likes to keep her relationship private but confirmed that they’re engaged. Not only do they have similar hobbies, but also the same political opinions. They are often wearing Trump merch in their group photos, and on top of that, people tweeted some questionable behaviour they witnessed.

In 2021 Amanda started working on her own makeup brand. She often talked about all the preparations and legal obligations it takes, but was very excited. In 2022 she finally released her own brand called Elevate Beauty. Her brand is cruelty-free and vegan and relies on all the production in the USA.
