Although I started as a makeup artist in the year 2015, my relationship with makeup started around age 7 when I would spend my time opening my mom’s makeup drawers and observing how the silver and blue sparkles would shine at tip of my fingers.
I would do this over and over again with the same products and it was never boring.
After I re-discovered my love for makeup at age 20, I moved to Lisbon to learn more and get to work in a fast-paced city.
There, I was offered a 3-month internship in television where I then ended staying for 3 years.
After 1.5 years I was invited to teach class at my previous school. It was a big challenge to pass on knowledge at such young age, but I took that opportunity and I’m really grateful for it.
By the end of 2017, I wanted to go bigger and faster in my career, and I also wanted to know what it was like to live outside my country, so I decided to move to London.
London is one the best places to learn about makeup. Although I only stayed there for 6-months I learned a lot.
During that time, I took some courses at the Illamasqua School of Makeup Art and worked for Fenty Beauty during their first year at Harvey Nichols.
I went looking for growth and expansion and that’s what I found in London, but it also opened my eyes to how amazing it is to live in the Algarve.
So, for that reason, I decided to come back to Portugal and be a freelance makeup artist.
Now, I’ve been working mainly with brides and photoshoots. I would say I’m specialized in glam/beauty makeup and editorial.
I would describe my style as fresh, dewy, glamourous makeup.
I still teach makeup at workshops and courses, and I also love to learn, I’m always reading a book or trying something new.
