“Beauty is something wonderful and strange that the artist fashions out of the chaos of the world in the torment of his soul…It is a melody that he sings to you…”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence
Hello, Dear beauty lover! I’m glad you had the time to visit my page.
There was a splendid time that I spent studying art in Russia for 4 years. Where under the guidance of remarkable teachers, who cultivated the best of me, I grew fond of world’s fine art. Several years later, I was introduced to the craft of makeup. Working in one of the oldest, luxury curated beauty boutique Cos Bar, located in picturesque mountain valley of Aspen, Colorado. Within 3.5 years, I was lucky to attend numerous beauty schools and trainings launched by different brands, such as: Laura Mercier, Gorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown, La Prairie, Sisley, La Mer, Orlane, Clinique. Learning all the new makeup application techniques, trending products, I also have discovered a lot about skincare and its importance in any beauty routine. All this priceless knowledge helped me to not only build a strong relationship with my clients, but also to reveal a true passion and confidence to start a solo adventure in the world of beauty.
My art teacher once has told me “Try to mirror your object on the canvas as precise as possible…with a bit of captivating enhancement, of course”. That is how I see makeup – as a fine accessory, which involves proper personalized adjustment.
Listening, understanding, suggesting, responding to client’s needs, ideas and expectations “….as precise as possible”. Over the years, my expertise has grown wide from creating romantic, airy, natural, NYC looks to dramatic, theatrical, glamour, vamp looks. I always encourage my clients and my friends to pay more attention to their skincare regiment, as it happens to be a perfect start for a healthy looking radiant makeover.
Love. Share. Shine=*
