Beauty and Skincare Expert, Make up Artist

Over the years, I have worked in Theatres, Fashion shows, Fashion Campaigns, Editorials, Advertising, QVC and Chanel 4., Corporate jobs mainly for Walt Disney in the past 5 years and, on Bridal Make up on locations in UK and abroad.

Product Trainer and Educator

Studying 4-years chemistry in Slovakia and having a parent as chemistry teacher while growing up, I was always naturally curious about science behind the cosmetics. As much as I always enjoyed makeup as creative aspect, in 2008, I got involved in beauty industry. Space NK was great platform to learn more about high tech and niche skincare from around the world. On few occasions, I was working with inspiring Nicky Kinnaird ( the founder of Space NK ) and Terry de Gunzburg ( founder of By Terry ) on private beauty events.

Over the years, I have also helped few brands with brand awareness, sales and trainings – By Terry and Colbert MD. For two years till April 2018, I have looked after Windle and Moodie British hair care brand with brand awareness, product training and I became a trainer, educator for UK. During that period, as freelaencer, I have also helped out with Mauli Rituals – Ayurvedic brand and, worked closely with Anita Kaushal the founder.

I am equally obsessed about food, good nutrition, yoga, beauty products and, I believe a healthy glow you can achieve from ‘inside and out’.
