My attraction for cosmetics begun from the very first makeup kit at the age of eleven. The dream toward professional makeup artistry was awakened in 2013 during my Erasmus exchange in Valencia, Spain. After an Interrail detour through Europe in summer 2014 and months of pondering my major studies, it was natural to pursue styling over design the following autumn.
The university studies covered the basic fundamentals of fashion, interior and personal styling including event styling, marketing and project management skills along with photoshoot organization and a makeup course by Grimas. My personal aim was to focus on makeup and styling which led into collaboration with a theatrical piece to study the character makeup design as a tool in character creation, expression and immersion.
Since then, active participation in events, photoshoots and films all over the country has encouraged to maintain on the field of beauty industry. Makeup is not just a tool but a constant learning process and a lifestyle of creativity and expression.
“[...]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
