FEATURED MAKEUP ARTISTS INTERVIEW
1.What do you hope your contribution to the project says to the viewers?
In all fashion stories, make up and hair style are very important, because they complete the style and help to define the mood. This fashion story is about a strong aristocratic lady, birds lover. I hope the viewers will catch this message.
2.How has working with a team benefited you aside from strengthening your skills?
Work with professional people is always a great advantage. The spirit was friendly and relaxed. During briefing phase I could confront my ideas with stylist and photographer, so we were working together on the right mood.
3.What is some good advice for Makeup Artists striving to work in this industry?
Aside from a good make up school preparation, it’s very important to don’t stop research and keep you always update about make up and fashion trends.
4.What do you find to be the most rewarding and difficult when working with a team of artists to meet a common look?
For me is very important to communicate with stylist and photographer in order to understand their ideas about mood, location, about message they want express. Without understanding it I could not propose make up or hair style. The most rewarding moment is maybe on the set, when everything is perfect, model, location, lights, clothes, accessories, hair, make up and any element match with others.
5.How do you plan for the unexpected?
Any project is decided before and I know exactly what I need to do. Anyway, unexpected can happen. Important is to be quick, smart, creative and find a right alternative. I always propose to
stylist, photographer or art director more than one possible make up and hair styles already in briefing phase.
6.What do you feel is a common mistake Makeup Artists make?
Less is more. In fashion should be clothes the protagonist, not make up.
7.What advanced classes have you taken that you feel has helped you the most?
I studied on make up academy in Italy, but I still keep me updated and I continue follow great make up artists like Alex Box, Lan Nguyen, Lisa Eldridge, Path McGrath and others. Their works are a big source of inspiration for me.
8.What do you say to those who don’t feel education is important throughout their career?

I don’t like simple things and I always wanted to do something important, something demanding, and something complete. I’ve come across a photographer with the same passion. It’s no so hard if you are doing a professional work, but you can never stop to build it. You need
to do better every day if you really love your work.
