Contributor – Zoe Karlis [Makeup Artist/Hair Stylist]

In 5 years I will be…in Paris doing backstage shows with Pat McGrath of course!

Life is awesome when…. I finish someone’s face and they love it. Bliss! The look on their face is totally satisfying.

I would like to die…in 100 years. I have way too much to do before that.

I like holidays becauseit gives me time to relax and return inspired from wherever I went.

My style is…totally dependent on my mood. And that goes for both makeup and fashion.  I do love a classic look but with my own twist.

When the shit hits the fan…I breathe. I learnt long ago there is no point in panicking but instead getting on with it. Your reaction is what makes or breaks any situation.

Instinct or logic?
Ohhh that’s hard but Id have to say instinct, its always right. ALWAYS!

Who has made the biggest impact on you creatively?
My mum. She is a hairdresser and loves to draw and paint. I believe she influenced and brought out my creative side. My husband has been my biggest supporter, which has also allowed my creative side to flourish!

If you were an animal what would you be?
A giraffe – have you seen their eyelashes? I’d die for those!

Favourite person from history is?
Whoever invented the wheel. Apparently it is still a mystery but without them civilization as we know it would not exist. So thank you whoever you where.

What advice would you give an aspiring makeup artist?
Never give up…. unless you’re doing it for the money. Its such a competitive industry, those who do it out of love and continue to learn are the ones who will get far. Also, stop comparing yourself to other makeup or hair artists. Everyone has his or her own flair so continue build on yours. Be happy and support your fellow artist!

What’s your poison?
A fine red wine. Oh and lots of makeup…….and I mean lots!

What would you crawl over hot coals for? My family – simple.

What is your passion?
I love what I’m doing right now. I love being a makeup and hair artist who brings out the best in people not only physically but also emotionally by giving them an unknown confidence. I feel like the luckiest person in the world!
