A beautiful journey
For me, make-up is about enhancing your true natural beauty. Creating a ‘red carpet’ look which perfectly matches your style with a look that’s not too overpowering and exactly right for your occasion.
Painting ladies is what I’ve always wanted to do. Even from when I was six years old and my mother asked me what I wanted to do when I was older. Growing up in Lithuania, nothing gave me more pleasure than giving family and friends makeovers; helping them to feel beautiful. I went on to work in sales and marketing, however it wasn’t until I had my own special day as a bride that I knew I’d found my true calling.
I truly remember thinking that I wanted to make sure that every bride felt the most beautiful they ever did, red carpet ready, stunning, relaxed and calm, so that they too could enjoy their own special day. My skills as a Bridal Make-up Artist and Hairstylist stretch much further than just applying beautiful make-up or hairstyling. I’ve been known to take on the roles of tailor, babysitter, florist and everything in between. Whether that’s cutting labels off dresses or making sure that dresses aren’t wet from the flowers – I just love being part of my bride’s special day.
My first professional course was at the Pixiwoo school run by renowned make-up artists, not to mention one of the most famous YouTube partnerships – sisters Samantha and Nicola Chapman. If you’ve ever heard of, or used, Real Techniques brushes, these are the ladies that are responsible for introducing them to the beauty world. This was followed by training back in Lithuania with Viktorija Vaisvilaite Skirutiene; owner of the most acclaimed beauty academy in country. An amazing artist and perfectionist, she taught me so much about the basics on shapes, colour theory, and classic make-up looks.
I’ve also attended training with Mario Dedivanovic, who started off as the personal make-up artist to Kim Kardashian; learning all about glamour make-up and new products. He’s now the number one leading and trend-setting make-up artist in the world.
Keeping up with the latest beauty trends is incredibly important to me. I have enjoyed a number of private masterclasses with Kristina Gasperas and some of the most famous make-up artists in Lithuania; Povilas Staniulionis, Milita Daikeryte, Monika Briu. Continuing to learn and being on top of new techniques, trends, and products is extremely important and interesting for me, so at least 2-3 times a year I book myself for private make-up masterclasses or beauty events to keep up with the industry.
