Professional makeup artist from Paris who finished school last year.
He first started an engineer school but understood he was meant to do something artistic in his life. He lived 4 months in London to improve his English and discovered a place where he could express himself. He came back to Paris confident and with head full of creativity.
He learned how to work with a client and to express his creativity with technics at school while he was posting more and more looks on Instagram.
He discovered the drag community in Paris with his close friends which are now a Haus. This universe helped him not to create makeup that works only on pictures but also in real life with bad light and no professional photographer.
He won the French NYX Face Awards of 2019 which helped him work with great magazine as Tush and Gala France. Now he’s represented by B agency in Paris.
Loving doing artistic makeup on himself, he does drag club Kid and colourful looks for his pleasure. He always tries to innovate and find new shapes and ideas.
His goal is to find a balance between creativity and technics to be completely proud of his work
His only key is that perfection doesn’t exist, that’s means you can always do better and improve yourself
