Dasha at GreenMakeup passed this award on to me and being that I find her blog and effort amazing I’m very glad to receive it :-)
Here’s what she has posted about herself from her About page:
“I need to express myself through colours and brushes. With creating new looks and images I fly in my own world. I love to work with different kinds of people and I’m very happy when my work makes people feel beautiful and unique.”
My make-up artist career started several years ago at University, where I studied fashion design. I have been inspired by the beautiful world of fashion, make-up and colours since ever. During my studies I started to expand my knowledge with several make-up courses, workshops and assistant works. Then I decided that the passion for make-up will become my profession. First I worked for magazines, fashion shows and video productions in my country. Then I moved to Milano for a year and later to Paris where I gained precious experiences while working with professional models from all over the world, especially on photo shootings and in showroom. Meanwhile, I also made a huge change in my perception about beauty products and lifestyle. I had an opportunity to collaborate with a beauty salon, that used just organic cosmetics. When I’ve worked for the first time with natural make-up, I was very surprised and at the same time excited about this new discovery. The results had shocked me in a positive way. I’ve tried a completely organic skincare on my face for the first time and my skin looked younger, fresh and felt really healthy. That occasion led me to dig deeper in this new field. I started reading and trying new organic products and especially learning about the harmful ingredients in cosmetics. I even realized that I had some health issues in the past because of using too much chemicals, even in cosmetics. My make-up kit is now filled with lots of natural cosmetics. However, when doing a professional photo shooting, I still have to use professional products to gain a perfect and lasting look. But I do my best to include more and more natural products even there as well. Otherwise, on myself I always wear just the best natural cosmetics.
My wish for the future is to create my own truly green make-up brand and to write a book about the new concept of beauty!
I really like sharing my experiences, expand my knowledge, make new connections and start new collaborations. But most of all, I love make-up!
I kindly invite you to read my blog, share your thoughts with me and most of all: ENJOY!
