SO NICE TO MEET YOU.

My guess is someone you trust mentioned my name or you stumbled upon my website. Whatever brought you this way, I’m really excited you’re here.

Where did it all start….?

After studying in London I was very excited to move to LA where I was extremely fortunate to learn from the best in the field to become a Hollywood Special Effects & Make-Up Designer. Within a few years I got the amazing opportunity to be a creative collaborator within a 3 times Oscar winning team at Stan Winston Studio, working on some of the most famous movies from Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Batman up to the Thor series.
I still pinch myself sometimes.

 

This led me to 30 years of working experience with top International Celebrities in the Film and Beauty Industry, like directors, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Tim Burton, Roman Polanski…actors like Leonardo di Caprio, George Clooney, Russell Crowe, Mel Gibson and Denzel Washington as well as actresses like the amazingly talented Oscar winning actress, Natalie Portman, with whom connects me a 10 year long creative collaboration as her make-up artist, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jennifer Lawrence, amongst many, many other remarkable personalities.

WHY AM I DOING THIS ?

So you don’t have to rely on promises and hope.
Instead of following the newest fad, you’re in
total control by being in the know about what
truly works for you and is safe for your skin.

THIS IS ABOUT YOU AND YOUR OWN CHOICES

I’ve had the great privilege of meeting women from around the world from all walks of life. And I had the joy to help them with their beauty confidence for thirty years. Women like you who want to take on the day—whatever challenges may come—with a positive self-image, can-do attitude, and sense of calm.

Although we all have our beauty ideals, the one thing anyone can do to be truly beautiful is to be honest to oneself. Accept yourself for who you are and dont try to copy another person. That would dilute beauty as beauty is individual and unique.

We all have that “magic” inside but it will not be able to show itself if you are searching to look like somebody else.

At its core, beauty isn’t just physical. It shows up in the way you present yourself, act, experience the world, and influence how others perceive you. True beauty comes from the confidence within yourself about who you are.

Show this confidence in a healthy way and you might find that people are starting to want to copy you, no matter how you look.

“ NOTHING MAKES A WOMAN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE
BELIEF THAT SHE IS BEAUTIFUL”
