HI, I'M SUSANA
... and I'm so glad that you're here!
I am an award winning professional makeup artist based in the beautiful Algarve, and needless to say, I have always been fascinated by everything related to beauty.
Life initially took me on a different path and I ended up completing my university degree and became a teacher. However, years later, I finally made the decision to put my career aside and study the art of makeup. I have trained in several schools, including Make Up For Ever Academy and Make-up school of Lisbon, having later specialized in bridal makeup.
Since then, I have been grateful every day for the decision I made - to do what I truly love! Throughout the years, I've had the pleasure of working with clients from every part of the world and I can't put into words how gratifying this has been.
I am a romantic by nature, and bridal makeup is really my greatest passion! I love being part of my brides' most memorable day and help them feel the way they have always dreamed of. With hundreds of brides in my client portfolio, I have been featured in magazines and wedding websites, not only in Portugal, but also in Brazil, Ireland and the UK.
I've also contributed to a wide variety of film productions, from promotional films, commercials and institutional projects to video clips and fashion, alongside with so many inspiring people: from actors, celebrities and models, to top international competition athletes and politicians for their campaigns.
I believe that makeup is extremely important at various levels, playing a key role in self-esteem and confidence - and this is why makeup artistry, for me, goes far beyond the mere application of products and techniques.
Other than that, I am a proud mom, a cat person and a coffee lover. I welcome everybody from every part of the world to sit on my makeup chair, and language is not a barrier: I speak fluently Portuguese and English, and a little bit of French and German.
Could you be the next to become part of my portfolio? I would really love to hearing from you!
