Originally from Slovakia, I have lived in UK for almost twenty years now. In 2001, I have completed Intensive Make up Course at Greasepaint and since I have been enjoying an interesting journey as Professional Makeup Artist. In the spring of 2014, I have moved my base to Bedfordshire. I still regularly travel to London and all over where a project takes me.
Over the years, I have worked in ENO – English National Opera, did grooming for Franz Ferdinand commercial and music videos with JJ Stereo. For number of years, I worked closely with Anna Scholz fashion campaigns in UK and Italy. Travelled abroad for Bridal Make up in France, UK and in Slovakia. Been hired to work for magazines like Italian Vogue, Russian Vogue, Elle, Glamour. Got involved with projects with Napoleon Creative; worked in QVC, Chanel 4 and Walt Disney.
My first ever project working with Walt Disney was back in 2011. Whether there is yearly Employee Forum, Women’s International Week, or at the Abbey Road Studios, AIR Studios earlier this year to Corporate Headshots at Disney office, there are many interesting projects I get involved.
Studying 4-years chemistry in Slovakia and having a parent as chemistry teacher while growing up, it became natural to be curious about science behind the cosmetics. As much as I always enjoyed makeup as creative aspect and, I still do, in 2010 I got involved in beauty industry. Space NK was great platform to learn more about high tech and niche skincare from around the world and, there were few opportunity when I was working with inspiring Nicky Kinnaird ( the founder of Space NK ) and Terry de Gunzburg ( founder of By Terry ) on private events. Over the years, I have helped few brands with brand awareness, consultancy – By Terry and Colbert MD and, recently with creative Windle and Moodie hair company and Ayurvedic wellbeing company – Mauli Rituals.
I am equally obsessed about food, good nutrition as much as beauty products and, I believe a healthy glow you can achieve from ‘inside and out’.
