"Diversity! Beauty was always abundant, but now finally, all of its kinds have gained media visibility."
What is your signature?
Perfect natural skin. I've been called 'the skin magician' before and I loved it! I'm obsessed with skin care and prep before make-up, I think it is one of the most important skills in the beauty business.
What is the most complicated task ever asked of you?
With experience, nothing really feels complicated any more… Sometimes, it can be challenging to deal with differing artistic points of view, but there’s always a way.
What do you find fun about your job?
My job is my passion, working around the world, making beautiful images with creative, passionate people : fun is intrinsic to the job, that's how creativity and magic are unleashed
What inspires you?
So many things! Art, cinema, pop culture... And special simple moments of everyday life, like observing a woman applying her make-up in the metro, the colours of spices on a market in India...
And the job you won't forget?
Working with Kirsten Owen for Vogue CS, I used to adore her on the covers of Vogue Germany in the 90s, she was one of my fashion icons. Years later, It was magical to get my own cover with her, I will forever be grateful to Jan Kralicek and Michal Pudelka who made it happen.
What do you consider 'modern' in today's Hair and Make up?
Diversity! Beauty was always abundant, but now finally, all of its kinds have gained media visibility.
