Before stepping into the World of Makeup and Beauty, I worked as a lawyer and defended people’s rights in court. I never thought, that life would pleasantly surprise me and I would become a makeup artist one day. It all started with my dream of freedom to create art and use my talent to do magnificent work!
I began my journey by studying makeup at a school of Goar Avetisyan in Moscow. This is one of the best makeup schools in Russia. Goar Avetisyan is a world’s famous, accomplished makeup artist (she has 6.7M followers on IG: goar_avetisyan). Now, that I have been involved in the industry for many years, I feel extremely proud of my work in the production of TV commercials, fashion shows and artistic photoshoots for various fashion and beauty magazines. I am proud of creating my own technique called “Step-by-Step” and «Mix Everything». I successfully teach my students all my techniques and beauty secrets.
I started my professional career as a lawyer, but deep in my heart, I always knew I had a great passion for makeup. Truth is, I wasn’t brave enough to turn it into a profession. I thought it probably would be a rough path, especially in the beginning, and for a long time I treated the art of makeup as a hobby.
Finally I couldn’t deny my strong desire to learn makeup professionally and turn it into my new career. I graduated from a makeup school knowing that being a makeup artist is “my destiny“! I took a few of Goar Avetisyan’s Masterclasses (a world’s famous, accomplished makeup artist, she has 6.7M followers on IG: goar_avetisyan). I specifically remember that during one of her Masterclasses, it became very clear to me, that I want to share my knowledge with others. I am a certified specialist and a highly skilled Makeup Artist, successfully teaching my students how to create beauty for over 7 years now.
Prior to my career specializing in hair extensions, I began my beauty journey by getting all of my technical education as a licensed cosmetologist. I am master certified in the art of hair extensions installation, specializing in 4 methods (Keratin Fusion, Braidless Sew-in, Tape In, and I-tip applications). It is my greatest passion transforming my clients confidence and it is an honor to share that joy with my students.
In my class you won’t only learn proper application and removal with an integrity focused approach for client safety, but you will also be given tools to build a fulfilling career. From marketing advice to build your clientele, to all of my best tips and tricks, no rock will be left unturned. Hair extensions aren’t just one thing! While it is often used for adding length and volume, it can also be used to correct a bad haircut or add highlights and color changes without ever getting a chemical service done. This industry is so fulfilling and I’m eager to use my expertise to bring that joy into your life where you can have a booming career so that work never has to feel like work again.
It has been 17 year as I have been working as an esthetician. I love and enjoy it. Making people look and feel good is emotionally rewarding for me. Five years ago I start teaching and I truly enjoy the process.
I feel so thrilled that I have the knowledge, experience and passion to share. Like we saying “Sharing is Caring”, I care about my clients and my students, I want them to be happy and successful. I am a true believer that you must stay up to date with what is going on in the industry you work in, in order to be at the top of your game.
I love to share my knowledge and help others. Being an esthetician is not only about giving treatments and teaching, it’s also about helping create a change in someone’s life.
