Who Am I?

I would like to tell you a story… A story about following your dreams…

Once upon a time there was a little girl called Lida.  She grew up and became a makeup artist. She loved her job. Lida wanted to be a makeup artist since she could remember.
One day Lida got invited to primary school re-union after many years. It was so lovely to catch up with everybody. When the question popped up:”what do you do for living?” Lida just simply replied. The classmates gasped and said: “no way, you said you become one at the age of 5!”The end.

To let every client experience 5-star professional makeup artistry.
I have often been asked ‘’ what inspires you?’’ Behind every soul is a story, the ability of giving a woman confidence with make-up is very empowering, it’s simple as that….
‘’Bridal make-up should be special. Wedding makeup should be flawless, long lasting and timeless. On the special day, the bride should look like herself, but at her most beautiful.’’
