  • Make-up designer for the first ever cinematically released music album Whiplashdreams.
  • Head of Make-up for fashion shows/presentations during LFW for brands such as Sydney-Davies, Susana Bettencourt, Field of Ponies, Alexandra Moura, Klar & Rein
  • Working with talented musicians such as Iris Gold, Cuckoolander and Janset among others (music videos, shoots, concerts & festivals)

What is your make-up motto?

I think it is the power of it all. With Make-up you can make women/men feel more confident; a character take over, express feelings and be whoever you want people to see, and that’s the beauty of it all. So my motto would be - Make-up is an illusion that makes all beautiful, at least for a moment.
