The answer to this question can be a bit cliched , but trust me on this: - inner peace! Take it easy
mission statement: Use a woman's natural beauty to establish a 'contemporary woman' style. And don't follow the trend, develop your own style
Hopefully: an internationally certified makeup artist.
A super brush! Where I make the look from just an 'abra kadabraaa'
''It's such a shame! Who is going to make us beautiful?''
It's the reverse ranking of what Al Pacino said in Scarface 'First you get the women, then the power, then you get the money!' Oops Al Pacino wont agree about this sequence but this is how it goes in my world!
I am a free lancer, and that's the best part of being a makeup artist, where some days can get really overbearing, whereas others can go by smoothly.
The most important thing in this career is to learn the rules and once you master the technique, you add your personal taste, and voila you are ready to go!
I'm still in the beginning of my career.
It's all about adding your own particular taste, and knowing what's best from one client to another and how you work with their particular facial profile. It's my own individual taste that differentiates me from the competition, and luckily my personal taste has taken off
My husband, Seif Abdel Nour. I would've never reached this point in my career without his full support, and him believing in me. He also has a remarkable eye for luscious looks, so I actually seek out his advice for professional reasons. He doesn't know the technicalities but he'll say when he likes something and his taste is quite impeccable.
It gives me the chance to change the misconceptions of makeup in general, and to introduce a modern look and style for the contemporary women .
My greatest failure was at the beginning of my career when I let the clients control their look, without the staple of my style. There are some hopeless cases that I wish didn't adhere to! I learned to work with people who appreciate my style and are willing to entrust me completely in my work, not control-freaks who try to give me instructions while I'm trying apply make-up to their face.
Well, one time I decided to work on soon-to-be brides who were in need and couldn't afford it. So I went to their house, applied makeup for brides AND bridesmaids! And right before leaving, the mother came and rolled a hundred pounds and put it in my pocket saying '3azabnaki' with a sly wink!
To be honest in my career so far, I've never reached that level of decision-making. It's all about natural instincts. And my instinct for creating lusciousness never failed me.
