Hello, I'm Karina
I've always loved the art of disguise, and the creativity behind creating a completely new look. I first discovered that I enjoyed creating looks on other people when I ran my first face painting stall at a beer festival in 2010. Since then, I've been face painting for children's parties and charity events, as well as providing private makeup consultations to my peers. My formal education at the time was in Art History and Museum Studies, however I never stopped painting faces and designing makeup for theatre productions.
I graduated with a diploma in Film and Fashion Makeup Design at New Image College in December 2019 as a way of getting professional-grade experience in prosthetic arts and SFX makeup, with the intent to work in Film and Television. Through this course, I very quickly discovered my affinity for all types of makeup, regardless of how minimal or dramatic. I absolutely love creating any type of look, from basic daytime makeup to more Avant Garde looks. The most fulfilling feeling is seeing a happy and satisfied model or client, and I live for giving everyone who sits in my chair the look they dream about.
