"I find it really modern to anticipate the future in makeup and the incarnation of a character, entity or avatar by mixing techniques, whether with special makeup or digital effects."
What is your signature ?
A mix between modernity and technique. A good make up fits the entire image, not a show of make up. Different techniques, from the simplest makeup, through fake tattoo transfers to special makeup effects!
What is the most complicated task ever demanded of you?
To make the special makeup effects with Peter philips for the Alexander McQueen SS 2010 ATLANTIS Show! It's one of my most daring jobs with a very short preparation time, but an unforgettable success!
What do you find fun about your job?
Improvisation, reactivity, finding an idea in 5 minutes! Thinking of several ideas the day before a work and doing something completely different in the end because the interaction of the moment between each artist on the team takes us elsewhere and this is where the magic happens ...
What inspires you?
Nature, painting and human contact.
And the job that you won’t forget?
A serie of beauty pictures for Vogue France with Cedric Buchet about the "Anticipated Future" where I made a mouth in red silicone that the model could stretch with her fingers.
What do you see as modern in today’s Make up ?
Currently, I find it really modern to anticipate the future in makeup and the incarnation of a character, entity or avatar by mixing techniques, whether with special makeup and/or digital effects.
