How long working with MAKE UP FOR EVER?

Dany Sanz was on the examination board when Makka completed her makeup studies when she immediately noticed this talented young Finnish woman, full of ideas. Makka joined MAKE UP FOR EVER Paris, in 1999.
In 2002, Makka became an international makeup artist and trainer, moving on to become the International Education Manager in 2007 as sales outlets multiplied exponentially.

Where did your passion for makeup come from?

Destiny caught up with Makka when she came to France to improve her French during a summer job in a theme park. There, she realized that her destiny was finally taking taking a turn towards the artistic world rather than language studies.
Determined to follow her dreams, she veered off, stayed in France and enrolled in a makeup school. She showed immediate talent and obtained regular freelance jobs while pursuing her studies.
