Aga Rhodes (formerly Kaskiewicz) is a Chicago-based professional makeup artist and global educator for various pro brands. After attending art school in her native Poland, Aga came to the U.S. in 1990, became a citizen, and continued her ongoing love for art, color, light, and texture by studying makeup artistry in New York and Los Angeles.

After many years of working for large beauty industry companies, Aga paved her own colorful path and embraced becoming an entrepreneur in 2014. From editorial and corporate photoshoots to TV commercials and feature films, such as Olympia and Prisoner, Aga brings attention to details and a focused calm to every job. Her commercial work has appeared on billboards and in magazines including CS, Michigan Avenue, Lucky, and Allure. Aga's stunning bridal looks have been showcased in countless wedding publications—both online and in print—such as Vera Wang, Inside Weddings, Carats & Cake, Modern Luxury Weddings, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, and Chicago Style Weddings.

With twenty years of experience under her belt, Aga is continuously committed to education. Among Aga's offerings are next-level luxury services including beauty consultations for every occasion, one-on-one makeup lessons and personal shopping. She is a contributing educator for The Makeup Show, The Powder Group, Temptu, London Eyes International Academy of Makeup, G Skin & Beauty Institute, Make Up First School of Makeup Artistry, and Refinery29. Additionally, she keeps up with the latest trends and techniques by attending hands-on workshops with world-renowned artists and working alongside the best in the industry at events such as New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

Aga is honored to have been a part of a creative team nominated twice for the prestigious North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA).
