BAYONNE, NJ - Bayonne’s business community got more glamorous with the Saturday opening of Madame Amelia.

The make up artistry and photography studio located at 1091 Avenue C is headed to Amelia Hill, a self-described “mompreneur," and protege of reality star and make up artist Alexa Prisco, perhaps better know as the Glam Fairy.

While clients will visit the location to get made up for occasions such as proms, weddings, and big nights out, Hill also has four other artists on her team that she’ll contract out.

With its proximity to New York and available transportation options, Hill believes that she will also attract clientele from across the Hudson River.

Like most new business owners Hill’s goal is a simple one: to be a success.

On hand to welcome Hill to Bayonne and wish the new business luck were Mayor Jimmy Davis and 2nd Ward Councilman Sal Gullace.

“We see again that our city’s business community is thriving and our efforts to attract new businesses, offering a variety of services, are paying off,” Davis said. “Just as Amelia has invested in Bayonne we are committed to investing in her future, and we hope our entire community will welcome her with open arms.”
