What motivated you to take part in our contest?

Even as a child, I was fascinated by make-up. Whether my mum, sister or friends, I was always making somebody up or ‘beautifying’ their hair. Two years ago, I decided to take it all to a more professional level and alongside my career as a nursery nurse, I started to do make-up and hair for brides, photo and video shoots, etc. It wasn’t about money but rather the activity itself – the experience, the training. In November 2017, I moved from Mannheim to Berlin and reduced my hours as a nursery nurse to three days a week to enable me to prepare myself as a make-up artist and work on freelance projects. I know that this competition will help me on my way and I can finally realise my dream of becoming a make-up artist! I’m going to give it my all! :)

This is why our jury chose you:

- Artistically inspired and creatively implemented
- Puts his own spin on the theme
- Harmonious overall impression

I’ve always dreamed of taking part in a competition like this, but the chance never came along – until I saw the flyer in Müller. I was immediately ready to pursue my hobby, which just happens to be my little talent, and enter the contest. The creativity of make-up art and the pleasure I get from it is what motivated me.

I'm always up for a good challenge and this time, my dear husband Danijel is to blame. After seeing your advert, he was the one who pushed me to enter and compete in this contest. I can say that over the past month of me being part of this, the most priceless experience that will always stay in my heart is the love and support of my family and friends, as well as other MUAs, that has been shown towards me on social networks and in real life. The fact that this is an international competition that culminates in London with a jury of sector experts is highly motivating, as well as knowing that major brands such as Makeup Factory, Grazia and Muller are all behind it. I see this as an opportunity to show my form of make-up art, skills, ideas and the philosophy behind it in this high-level competition amongst the best of the best. This is what makes me tick! ❤️☺️

This is why our jury chose you:

- Artistic and expressionist
- Extravagant and edgy
- Creative and original take on the themes

What motivated you to take part in our contest?

Actually, it was a spontaneous decision – I was shopping for my make-up products in the Mueller drugstore one day when your ‘The next makeup artist’ flyer caught my attention. I was so excited because as an artist, you have given me a chance to express and showcase my creativity in a job that I live for. As I already knew Makeup Factory's make-up style, I was even more excited because I absolutely love it!

This is why our jury chose you:

- Extremely precise and clean technique
- High-quality, professional overall impression
- Exact adherence to the prescribed themes (good technical skills)
