Hi Laurie! Who are you?

Hey, my name is Laurie and I'm a makeup artist from Frankfurt am Main. Originally I come from Flensburg and am still a proud ‚northern light‘. I am an open and cheerful person, which makes it easier for me to make contacts. Through my training as a beautician, hairdresser & make-up artist, I have learned a lot in all areas and was able to gain great experiences with many great people. After these 5 years of training I am overjoyed to be self-employed. Bringing eyes to shine, underlining advantages, highlighting natural beauty, becoming creative & giving more self-confidence - exactly these reasons make my job as a make-up artist my passion. I'm burning for self-employment and I'm incredibly grateful that I can live my dream job.

How do you find the products you use and what is particularly important to you when selecting them?

When selecting products, it is particularly important to me that I cantouch and swatch the products before buying, because colours and structures arevery difficult to assess when buying online. For this reason I like to take thetime to feel and test products. A high opacity is very important to me as wellas perfect and matching brushes for each individual and different look.

What makes a perfect make-up base for you?

The perfect make-up base is enormously important for even and long-lasting styling. Because the skin should be properly cared for under the make-up to prevent the make-up from slipping, heavy greasing or drying out of the skin. The cream under the make-up should therefore be optimally adapted to the look as well as the individual skin texture in order to achieve perfect styling.

What was the most extraordinary make-up you've ever created?

My most extraordinary make-up I have created so far was probably a lookwhere I created an eye makeup out of lipstick. The result is a pretty cool lookthat is simply different and creative. Using products in supposedly 'wrong´places can broaden your horizon and give you the opportunity to be creative.

What was your coolest professional experience?

As a make-up artist I get to know great people, travel a lot with my job,make eyes shine, pass on my knowledge as a lecturer and can determine myeveryday life as a self-employed person. What is the coolest professionalexperience for me? The change on every single day! I can't even put into wordshow much this passion means to me and accordingly couldn't limit it to a single experience.

Why Slow Aging not only changes our skin, but also our attitude towards ourselves

As is well known, opinions differ when it comes to skin care. How often have we probably already dealt with the latest "tips and tricks" of facial care and friends about this topic. Among the countless products of the most different manufacturers it is often very difficult to decide for the right skin care and to be satisfied with it. Some swear by home remedies, while others can no longer do without special cleansing brushes for the face. As different as our own convictions may be, there is one point on which almost all of us agree: radiant, even skin is the goal and the aging of the skin must be prevented.
