MAKE-UP ARTIST FEATURE: LENA ABOUT HER JOB, PRODUCTS AND BODYPAINTING ;)

Lena comes from NRW and has been working as a make-up artist for over two years.

You can find her work at e.g. Instagram under @makeupartist_lenaa 



LENA, HOW DO YOU FIND THE PRODUCTS YOU USE AND WHAT IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT TO YOU WHEN SELECTING THEM?


In this day and age, I don't think it's surprising that most products come to my attention through social media. Many companies do a lot of marketing online and so I always find new products. 


But also the experiences of other stylists, friends and acquaintances let me always find new products.Since I cover several areas as a stylist, it is particularly important to me that a product is an all-rounder for me.


So a product must not only be good for a photo shoot, and perform well there, but must also hold a whole day and night with a bride or a wedding guest. In addition, my products must work for a wide range of people and be adapted to every skin type.



WHAT WAS THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY MAKEUP

YOU'VE EVER MADE?

So that reminds me of the make-up for a photo shoot. Actually my makeup goes in the direction of beauty, but for a photo shoot I had to paint the model completely black with bodypainting color.


Of course the make-up base was very important. On the one hand so that the black color on the body of the model looks even, but of course also so that the color goes off again and the model did not have to run around for weeks with black spots on the skin.


WHAT MAKES A PERFECT MAKE-UP BASE FOR YOU?


The perfect make-up foundation actually makes everything for me. Someone can have the most beautiful eye makeup, but if the rest doesn't fit, it goes down. For me, the perfect foundation for a beautiful makeup has to moisturize the skin, make it look healthy and "plump". Of course, it should also mattify the areas where you shine faster. A Glowy, but also durable makeup base is very important to me, I achieve this mostly by mixing different products.



HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE TOZAIME GEISHA GLOW CREAM?


I have to admit, when I first came across Tozaime, I was skeptical.I first try out all the products before I use them with my customers to convince myself of the product or not. However, I am always more careful with creams, because I already have my favourites there and have to struggle with very sensitive skin myself. 


One day my skin loves a cream and three days later it suddenly burns like hell on my skin.Nevertheless I took the step and tested the Geisha Glow Cream. Since my skin looked great after a long time and I had no problems, I continue to use it. And what can I say now, the cream is still the main part of my daily routine. I fixed my mum and my friends with the Geisha Glow.


I use it not only for myself, but also for my customers. Whether for a shooting or for a wedding, the cream is my faithful companion. Depending on the skin type, I reduce or increase the dosage with the pump dispenser. After several enthusiastic ladies and also gentlemen with whom I have used the product,I only got positive feedback on the product.


THAT PLEASES US OF COURSE VERY MUCH! LAST BUT NOT LEAST: WHAT WAS YOUR COOLEST PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE?

I can't even answer the question with a really great experience. It's always great to meet new people or to watch fashion shows. I think the best thing for me is the quiet moment on the wedding morning when I can style the bride. It's always a great experience because I really appreciate the fact that the bride lets me contribute to the most important day of her life. But also the creative life at shootings is unbelievably cool. That's why every day as a makeup artist and hair stylist is an exciting experience.


THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DEAR LENA! WE LOVE YOUR WORK!
