WELCOME TO MY LIFESTYLE AND MAKE UP BLOG!
Allow me to indroduce myself...
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, critical thinking.
I am not a blogger, an influencer or a writer! It´s not something I ever set out to be. This blog is only to inspire and help each other.
And finally I am a private person with feelings, a traveller, a dreamer and Nature lover.
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. There I was too busy absorbing this new culture, lifestyle and fashion tends. 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 I got married to a German man, adding a third culture I feel now that,
I belong to the world!

Modern "beauty" standarts 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.
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.
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.

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!

AT THE NEXT TOP MODEL!
Was the place where I discovered all the trends and achieved all the amazing looks for the models.
Together with the most famous and talented hair stylists, designers, photographers in the business!
I consider it one of the highlights of my career!
With BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH (styling) for Sherlock Holmes interview and red carpet premiere!
I feel so greatful about meeting a super famous and popular actor this level!
Entertainment world is so fascinated is something I really enjoy working at. Lots of celebrities and getting a peek at their personal side. At the same time is so much stress for me to achieve the perfect look! But it worths it. Was one of the most important job of my life.
TV, STAGE, THEATER - MAKE UP
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 styled shooting hair, styling & mua me
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!
Recreating DAVID BOWIE`S one of the most iconic looks!
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!
Thanks to: The talended model Karl (Birdcage Models) agency
The photographer Detlef Gottwald for the amazing work!
Was fun to work with for this creative project...
A little bit more creative: 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!
PUBLISHED MUA: Getting published in a fashion magazine was a catalyst for success...
Is a great way to get your work out there! Colaborate, build teams.
Was the way to establish my name for the fashion industry.
