BECOMING A MAKEUP ARTIST HAS BEEN A DREAM COME TRUE!
Creating beautiful makeovers makes me truly happy. I love seeing how women react once they realise how good they can look with a little bit of help from me.
Sylwia came to me with the dream of becoming a professional bridal makeup artist and with her dedication, talent and hard work has gone all the way and made it into the K-Team – please check out her bio below…
“My name is Sylwia and I am a makeup artist trained and based in London.
I always dreamt of being a makeup artist but started my career as a beauty therapist. This experience has been invaluable as it has helped me to understand skin types and match skin care products perfectly before applying makeup.
My basic training as a makeup artist was at the Academy of Freelance Makeup in London and after I completed that I worked in the backstage teams during London Fashion Week and Milan Men’s Fashion Week. I have assisted established makeup artists during live shows, model lookbook shoots, advertising editorials and luckily for me – I found Kristina who inspired me to turn my professional journey towards bridal makeup.
My goal while working with clients is to enhance their natural beauty and follow their personal style so that they feel and look their best on their special wedding day and other occasions that are dear to their hearts. I aim for the looks I deliver to be both timeless and fashionable but above all – perfect.
I believe that expert makeup application should demonstrate beautiful, flawless and glowing skin. It’s similar to subtle jewellery – without it, the look would not be complete.
My natural curiosity means I do a lot of research regarding trends in beauty, makeup, fashion, product ingredients and tips and tricks from the makeup artists I admire. I attend to many seasonal masterclasses offered to professionals by various brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Shu Uemura and many besides.
I am inspired by fashion, photography and old movies – the great movie stars and their makeup artists – oh, and of course by life itself!”
