I started as an art director in advertising specialising in cosmetics, luxury and fashion. I’ve worked in this industry for 7 years, so I’ve seen a wide range of beauty photography and makeup artists' works. I was already quite obsessed with pigments, colours, textures, and how physical makeup could transform your face or tell different stories.
While working daily on beauty campaigns, I was experimenting with 3D softwares just for fun. At that time, I met Panteros666
, a music producer, with whom I started making video clips where CGI would meet and mix with our reality, our physical world. The first music video we made, which I’m still super proud of is called BabyF16
, it’s mostly iridescent creatures and blobs populating our planet. I was already fascinated by the idea of making reality more fantastic and surreal, blurring the frontier between real and virtual.
One day, I decided to unite two of my favourite things and skills: makeup and 3D. I started adding 3D elements onto people’s faces. Accidentally I was creating my own vision of the future of beauty, I was becoming a 3D makeup artist.
