What do you feel makes your work stand out from your peers?
I don't really think about that, but people tell me that I have a certain kind of style. I don't know what to say about that though because I just see it as my work. It's hard for me to observe my work from an outside perspective because I’m obviously so close to it.
How did you make yourself stand out at Eyesight?
I just worked hard. I don't know any other way of being besides working hard and seeing everything through to the very end, all while focusing on every detail. So from intern to assistant to where I am now, that's what I've done every day. That's really all it takes, is just hard work and smart work. Marie and Thierry also believe in sharing and meritocracy which is very rare.
What do you feel separates you from everyone else as a makeup artist?
I think the motivation and that I work 100% of myself. I started early when I was 16 and I put all my life into my job. I don't ever take a day off. I love to work, learn new things, new ideas. Just never stopped growing :)
How do you keep it up?
I try to always look at the bright side of life :) Dreaming big and reaching goals brings me a lot of motivations.
What separates you from everyone else?
I'm critical of my personal work, but I'm really confident in saying that I’m a good person to have on set, and work with on a team. If you have good work and you're kind and good to be around, that speaks volumes in this industry. People don’t want to work with horrible people; they just don’t. Especially as a newcomer, I think it bodes well to be a nice person. In some light, my work probably could be the same as a lot of other people’s. I hope it translates as colorful and youthful, decorated, fun and a bit carefree. But I think that it’s super important at the end of the day to be a good person to work with or for.
How is your vision unique?
I like women to look real even if there is a fantasy element to a makeup look that I’m creating; I think the woman needs to be believable.
It’s important for the viewer to be able to relate on some level to the woman. So much of what is portrayed now within beauty is so utterly unattainable that women look like dolls. That’s not a beauty I buy into.
