Let’s find out where her passion for makeup comes from

As a teenager, Karine was her best friend’s official Makeup Artist. When the time came for her to choose her career, she couldn’t imagine anything other than makeup artistry. The smile on artists’ face and the shivers you get while watching special effects is what makes her job so special to her.
