Since childhood, I have been passionate about the world of makeup and beauty – stylish by birth, I had fun putting on lipstick, wearing perfume and playing with makeup.

I was born on a Carnival Sunday in Brazil, a day full of joy and colors!

Fast forward as a teenager, after moving to Spain at the age of 13, I used to do makeup for myself and my friends to go partying.

At the age of 24, I discovered the world of makeup in a professional way and gave up everything, leaving my job and stability to fight for my dream.

Early in my career, I already worked with different photographers, models, model agencies and magazines in Barcelona.

Then, in 2012, I moved to Switzerland and completely transformed both my personal and professional life.

In 2014 I became self-employed as a makeup artist and hairstylist, and in 2016 I opened my own company, Make-up Beauty Academy and my Fashion Brand (The KODE).

And all of that being the mother of two little boys!

My focus is not only to become a great professional but to help other people achieve that dream as well.

During these years I have worked for magazines, video clips, advertising, have specialized in bridal beauty, took international courses, as well as participated and led makeup teams for different designers and fashion shows, including the New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

Between my hobbies, I love dancing, travelling, theater and everything that is for my personal growth.
