“I need to express myself through colours and brushes. With creating new looks and images I fly in my own world. I love to work with different kinds of people and I’m very happy when my work makes people feel beautiful and unique.”
My makeup artist career started several years ago at University, where I studied fashion design. I have been inspired by the beautiful world of fashion, makeup and colours since childhood. During my studies I started to expand my knowledge with several makeup courses, workshops and assistant works. Then I decided that the passion for makeup will become my profession. First I worked for magazines, fashion shows and video productions in my country. Then I moved to Milano for a year and later to Paris where I gained precious experiences while working with professional models from all over the world, especially on photo shootings and in showroom. Meanwhile, I also made a huge change in my perception about beauty products and lifestyle. I had an opportunity to collaborate with a beauty salon, that used just organic cosmetics, where I had to use only organic makeup and to train the staff how to use it too. When I’ve worked for the first time with natural/organic make-up, I was very surprised and at the same time excited about this new discovery. The results had shocked me in a positive way. I’ve also tried a completely organic skincare routine on my face for the first time and my skin looked younger, fresh and felt really healthy. That occasion led me to dig deeper in this new field. I started reading and trying new organic products and especially learning about the harmful ingredients in cosmetics. My skin oversensitivity and allergies issues became a past, also thanks to this important change.
My makeup kit is now filled with lots of natural cosmetics. However, when doing a professional photo shooting, I still have to use some professional products to gain a perfect and lasting look. But I do my best to include more and more natural products even there as well. Otherwise, on myself I always wear just the best natural cosmetics.
Beside being a make-up artist, I studied many concepts in the mind-body-spirit related practices. I found the most effective for my use and to help others The Work (Katie Byron), EFT (different innovative approaches of this technique like Faster EFT and others) and the Bach Flower therapy. In these fields I have studied several books, did courses and the most important: lots of self-help. Because you cannot help others, if you can’t help yourself first.
I really like to share my experiences, expand my knowledge, make new connections and start new collaborations.
I kindly invite you to read my blog, share your thoughts with me and most of all: ENJOY the path!
