PROFESSION

Teaching & Tools Development Manager

HOW LONG WORKING WITH MAKE UP FOR EVER?

I joined the International Education Department in April 2012, where I initially handled the development of various educational tools and manuals.
In 2013, I became manager of educational tools development, an exciting new challenge that combines research, reflection, and the art of makeup.

WHERE DID YOUR PASSION FOR MAKEUP COME FROM?

In the late 1990s, I took to take part in a Body Painting competition, The Olympiades of Makeup, just for fun.
And against all odds I landed third place in the contest!
That was when I discovered that professional makeup is a trade in itself and that it can be learned. I joined a school, there I met many great people who allowed me to get my first experience as a professional makeup artist and trainer.
