I’ve started learning all about make up at D. Peeters private school in Amsterdam. A cool school with the focus on the vision, skills and techniques of Kevyn Aucoin. Other mua’s like Ellis Faas, Marie vd Ven & Xelly Cabau also studied here.
When I was young I used to sketch all the time, drawing eyes and faces and carrying a sketchbook everywhere. For my birthdays I always got crayons, pencils and paper gifted and I loved that. I didn’t know at all what to do with this, and followed my dad’s advice to go to a graphic-media school Amsterdam (GLA). I’ve worked as a graphic/visual & concept creative after that for many years. I took these evening study lessons besides my daily job and traded crayons and paper for real faces to ‘paint on’.
Currently I’m a freelance creative for various brands, agencies or photographers and combine my experience and network in media with make up, styling & shoots and like to work with skin-friendly, soft products which are sustainable and good. Feel free to contact me for a coffee or meetup!
