Being in the fashion industry, I meet some interesting and impressive artists on the job that are equally as creative and talented. Then, if there's one thing I could say is how the fashion world isn't really a superficial sphere, but more a world in which it is hard to make your mark and be successful. That say, I had this overwhelming desire to introduce you to amazing makeup artists that have so much personality, relentlessness than passion that never fail to impress me each day all thanks to their talent!

His entrance in the field was perhaps not a conventional one: at 19 years of age, he didn't have a job, a friend of his was leaving a job as a makeup artist at a beauty kiosk. Having never touched a makeup brush of his entire life and having little to no knowledge to this art form, he still applied for the position. A few lies later, the kiosk's manager hires him. It's at this moment that he started watching makeup tutorials every night telling himself: "What I've gotten myself into… Jesus Christ…" As the months go by, he surprised himself by developing a passion for this art. Since then, he has been working as a freelance makeup artist for several luxurious makeup brands, gives private lessons, has a few commercial contracts to his credit (including photo shoots, shootings, shows, etc.) Makeup has become an art form for the same reasons as painting and sculpting. He encourages women to love themselves beforehand without wearing any makeup. He now considers makeup being a major stressor, sign of social pressure and camouflage. Well this needs to stop! According to him, we need, as individuals, to take care of our self-esteem, health and skin. Then, when we'll all feel comfortable looking like our natural self, makeup will become a beneficial pleasure. It's an art form, source of enjoyment such as painting and it must remain that way. That's his philosophy.
