Anais From France - PAINTING BY NUMBERS

Fashion and beauty makeup artist Anaïs headed to Paris for a week of body painting. Her brushes were blooming.

To celebrate MAKE UP FOR EVER’s 30 Years Anniversary, a Makeup Artist Contest was launched. 7 winners won a spectacular Body Painting week at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy in Paris. The winners are a creative and infinitely interesting motley crew.


Our second Toulousian – she and Agathe know of one another, but their paths have never crossed directly - Pro makeup artist Anaïs works mainly in the fashion and beauty world. Photo shoots, lots of ads and fashion house catalogues, it’s all in a day’s work. She has done some face painting before but body painting is a brand new undertaking.

Anaïs’s winning character

To enter the contest, Anaïs amused herself with a brand new take on mythological figure Medusa. Now that’s an iconic figure!  She says she was drawn to the two-sides of the femme fatale, glacial character and wanted to exploit them both – playing in that common area between the seducer on the one hand, the repulsive one on the other.

What did she learn & love?

Quiet and thoughtful when speaking, Anaïs is finding the ambiance at the Academy warm and open. Always easier to learn when the vibes are good! Though everything happens in English her level of English must be top because Anaïs is finding it easy to follow. One of the things she is loving about this week at the Academy is the international slant – people have come in from all over the world, bringing their own cultural references and ways of doing things to the table. It feels like a creative melting pot to her and she is finding that it all fuels her own creativity.
