“Make-up is my great passion, and I’m proud that I turned my passion into my profession. Nothing guarantees quality more than doing something from the heart.”
At a very young age I started my first education in make-up and hair in Amsterdam. I remember being so euphoric that doing the make-up lessons was still considered ‘school’!
I participated in several competitions, which in 2008 resulted in winning the 1st place in a National Make-up competition in Utrecht.
Through several courses, in which I further extended my knowledge, I focused my skills on Fashion make-up. Doing mostly shows and photo shoots gives me the chance of exploring my creativity on many levels.
You come at a point, doing this now for over 15 years, that your friends stop asking you to do their make-up because it is your profession now, but I keep saying to them to keep asking me because I, and wonderingly this is still sort of special in this day and age, am doing something I can’t get enough of. I truly love what I’m doing, whether I’m doing make-up for a high-end photo shoot or at the wedding of my best friend I’ll do it with the same dedication and precision.
Precision is also a key word in my description. Eyeliner is my love and specialty. You’ll see in in my work my perception on beauty and most of the time in it’s purest form, highlighting the best features of the face. But of course sometime in a one of my creative outbursts I’ll use a face as my blank canvas and make complete paintings.
So with energy and enthusiasm I’m extending my skills, potential and possibilities for the future.
