Could you describe your style and how it developed? I created my own style, which developed over the years within my education as well as working with established Hair & Makeup artist. Since I’m a Hair & Makeup artist my diverse experiences have taught me to create different looks and finishing touches. In creating each look I strive for perfection till the last touch, even in an out of bed look.
Where do you get inspiration from? Inspiration comes for example from the impressions of everyday life, which can be as simple as a ride in the ubahn.

First step is to learn all about the basics and after that you get inspired by every job that you make. For example, you often work in teams and each member has its own way of doing makeup, so you see different styles and add the best out of it to you own way of hair & makeup design.

In your opinion, how important is it to culturally educate through art? It is important to culturally educate through art. It’s what allows us to break out of how society sees and force you to see things. There is a message in every piece, and as a Makeup artist I’m adding to the art being created.
