I love doing makeup on ordinary women. I find the instant feedback and interaction very satisfying and inspiring. One of the best things about my profession is being able to transform the way someone sees themselves in the mirror. Perhaps that’s why working as a freelance makeup artist at a photo shoot has never really interested me.
I do, however, still provide my services as makeup artist from my home in Punavuori; trams 3, 6 and 10 all stop a block from my apartment. I use some of the world’s best makeup ranges, including Zuii, Kjaer Weis, Rms Beauty and Ilia. For the base I also use products by Absolution and Iroisie.
Day and evening make up looks are 90 euros. Wedding make up includes both planning as well as the makeup itself on the day, and costs 150 euros. The price for an individually customized, step-by-step tutorial is 120 euros. Bookings are made effortlessly online.
Come and be adorned!
