I started my career as make-up artist in Barcelona, in the year 2012.
When I just finished the professional make-up artist course, I had the pleasure to work with different photographers, models, model agencies, magazines, short movie and commercial.
Once I moved to Switzerland I decided to also specialise in hairstyle so I started taking courses not only here but also abroad, one of the best hairstyle teachers I have had is Luciana Sabariz, she showed me so much! With her I learned all the tricks I know today for doing hairstyle.
In Switzerland my career changed completely, far from the fashion world, I started combining private clients and fashion.
For the first time I did a make-up for a bride and discovered a completely new possibilities, I loved so much being part of this such important day.
Between brides and fashion, I had the opportunity to give lessons in a make-up school in Zurich. I have to admit I was not so sure about it because I never saw myself as a teacher. I liked so much giving lessons that I even decided to open my own Make-up School!
In 2014 I went to New York City together with 3 other make-up artists for doing my so wished airbrush course! Every cent was worth and until Today I only use airbrush for all my clients.
Two months later we went back to New York but this time to participate for the first time at the New York Fashion Week.
I was make-up team leader in different shows in the years 2015, 2017 and 2018. The fashion week for me is by far the most wonderful experience I had the honour to do as make-up artist, all the strees and tension is worth when you see your work on the runway and the happy face of everybody in the crew. We have no idea how much work, energy and people are inolved for making one show possible. All these experiences I have to thank Vadim and Anna, our managers in New York.
Until Today I combine different works as make-up artist working with bridal, photographers, video, shows, television, etc.
I would say my life is a constant learning and doing 🙂
