WELCOME 

TO MY LIFESTYLE AND MAKE UP BLOG

  get to know me...


My job is to create beauty! I believe make up is a kind of art, it enhances a person´s appearance, bringing out colour and features and hiding or smoothing out flaws.
My work demands a perfectionist attitude, passion, love, creativity, good communication.

Born and grow up in Greece.
Living and working in Athens is a big part of myself.
As much I loved this city I couldn`t wait to leave!
I`d traveled a lot and my first time living outside my country was 2013 when I moved to Milan to further my education and open new professional trajectories.  
After that, I decided to continue my trip in Europe. Destination was Germany, where I moved 2015 for more job opportunities. So once again I am having a great time getting to know a new culture and language! Finally after 3 different countries and cultures i feel that,

 I belong to the world !

about beauty

Modern "beauty" standards are set by those who have the most influence. And as the world stands today, the West tends to have the greatest influence. Thus, those who seek to do well tend to gravitate towards that "Western look". The problem is that sometimes modern beauty isn't really beauty at all. It`s a fad, the flavour of the day.
Most who claim to be modern beautyful are really just average looking and there is nothing wrong with that. 
Real beauty is timeless and universal. It spans across all ethnicities. When a naturally stunningly beautiful woman walks in a room, everyone notices regardless if she is white, black, asian etc. The skin complexion is flowless, the body portions are exquisite (small waist, large bust, curvy lips, long legs)
Even if this woman isn't everyone's type, she is objectivly beautiful and everyone knows it!
Compare this to other beauty features of swollen lips, extreme contouring make up, fake lashes, fake Brazilian butts and it's very easy to see the difference. The same example of real beauty goes for men too.


about cosmetics

Cosmetics are a category of health and beauty products, that are used to care for the face and body or to accentuate - change a persons appearance. 
There are a large number of cosmetics avaliable !
1: Which cosmetics and cosmetic companies are best?
* Innovation & Quality,  not quick-fix beauty products!
* Cruelty free  and organic cosmetics:
These cosmetics are not tested on animals and contain no animal products! They can´t chemically  harm humans or the enviroment,
It's an alternative to replace harmfull lifestyle choices! 

2: What we use for our skincare is reflecting in our appearence our skin is a big organ that absorbes most of what it cames into contact with. But not only skincare products but what we eat and our lifestyle, affects many aspects of health including our skin.

about styling

Styling is a way you present yourself to others in a
different and unique manner!
Why do we need styling?
To coordinate all aspects of a person visual aesthetic to make them look as fashionable and appealing as possible. For clients who are quite famous or who simply want to look their best.

MY FAVORITE TESTIMONIAL NOTE

´Loved- Giota,
She was such a treat to work with. Not only is she talented, but she made the whole process fun and easy. I first met her at my trial and I expressed my concern of looking too done up*She walked me through all the steps made sure I was comfortable and made me look gorgeous. Giota went above and beyond the week before the wedding answering emergency questions and providing other skin advice etc.
Giota is a gem!

BACKSTAGE / CELEBRITIES / MEDIA / THEATER make up & hair

This type of make up tends to be heavier, darker, matte effect, as opposed to regular make up! 
With the need of variety of looks for varius productions and special supplies.

60 `S  STYLE

A look in fashion from the 60`s: rufled dresses, mini skirts. The fashion was colorful, creative and dynamic. Hair and make up are detailed from the Hippies to the bright and bold statement. It's always fun to take a look back through fashion history!

FOR ECXELLENT HAIR MAGAZINE

One of my favorite looks  creating for Lana this very beautiful model (birdcage models)
photographer Ulrich Wolf  campaine for EXCELLENT HAIR magazine 
At that time we was working wearing masks but you can still recognize me at the backstage! OR?

DAVID BOWIE`S  one of the most iconic looks recreating

I have an obsession with David Bowie, his music and films, from the moment I discover him as a young girl at the 80`s. He made the most sense to me. His approach to art, music and free expression inspired me as MUA! 


ART THERAPY

In between I am a painter. Art is not only fun. There is something deeper going on. When I create 
I feel like it clears my head, makes me feel calmer... I believe there is a lot happening in our minds and bodies when making art! And its related with make up - body painting!
