What inspired you to become a makeup artist?
I’ve loved makeup since I was small. My mom used to sell makeup from Avon and I watched how she applied the makeup to her face.
I love colours and that is also where I get my inspiration. At first I tried to do makeup on my face, then on my friends…and the feeling that I get after I see my friends happy because I made them feel beautiful is simply overwhelming. That inspires me!
Tell us about your favorite job so far!
I love all my makeup work, but my favorite job was the one I worked on for Bold Magazine. It was my first published work. It was published in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I worked with great and professional people!
What was it like being in Paris for Fashion week?
I worked for Fashion Extreme Paris. This annual event is a first of its kind and is an International Fashion show that features a team of world-class International Fashion Designers, Professional Models, Hairstylists & Makeup Artists, Photographers and Videographers showcasing their talents, creativity & designs. Their true goal is to bring together seasoned and new international artists in support of charitable causes.
