A great write up in Makeup Artist Magazine on my makeup designs for the Pan Am games opening ceremony by Cirque du Soleil.

I’ve been silent these last months as I was super busy working on a monster projet and simply did not have a minute to spare to blog…



Pan American Games Opening Ceremony .


And you can read all about it in Makeup Artist Magazine online now as senior editor Cori Stoddard came for a visit backstage at the Pan American games opening ceremony by Cirque du Soleil and reports back in details for you!


Cleaning your brushes in a more eco-friendly way.

I make conscious choices at work every day. I strive to minimise, choose wisely what I buy, reduce packaging, use cruelty free as much as possible but one thing was getting on my nerves: my brush cleaning process at work.

The cleaner part I’d already solved by replacing the chemical solvent based one with my own made of natural ingredients. But the amount of paper towels that ended up in the trash each day, that wasn’t working for me.

I tried the black hand towel solution which many MUA use but I didn’t like carrying and washing a towel everyday for just a small corner being used and, this is the lame part of me, I don’t like the way it looks as fades overtime. So, I found an other solution which suits me better.

Here’s what I do. I buy 100% natural sponge cloths which I cut into 4 equal parts, perfectly sized for a day’s use, and throw them in the wash when I get home. As simple as that!

A new beauty series in TWO magazine

I so rarely post blog updates – I just cant find the time – that when I do I feel terrible for not being more assiduous. You don’t know the admiration I have for people who manage to have a career, a private life AND a virtual life!

That said, makeup artists and makeup fans, you will want to have a look at my new beauty series in the August issue of TWO magazine available here :
