Thanks for visiting my website, I’m Matea, a freelance makeup artist living in Zagreb, Croatia.
Even though I graduated as an engineer, makeup has always been my passion. I started in the beauty world when I was a student, working as a promoter for several makeup brands.
Even though I started as self taught, I got the opportunity to do makeup for a couple of celebrities, music videos, fashion shows and a lot of brides. As I got more and more inquiries I decided to take it to a professional level and enrolled into JL Style Academy. The owner, Lucija Juroš, gave me a great insight in to the makeup industry and demonstrated the latest techniques, which I implement in my work today. I've since graduated from JL Style Academy, obtaining Pro II certification, with a specialisation in Multimedia, Film & TV. I'm also registered as a company in Croatia.
It has been 4 years since I started working as a makeup artist and will continue to grow professionally through advanced makeup artist certification workshops. I believe that you can never be over qualified and that is crucial when growing your craft.
As an artist, I love making women feel beautiful. I am inspired by every person, every face I see and that is how I love to do makeup. I approach each client individually, because my client’s vision, personality, comfort and needs are priority.
I only use professional high end products such as MAC, Ben Nye, Kryolan, Makeup Designory, Makeup Forever, Inglot, Temptu, Bobbi Brown, RCMA, Estee Lauder, Embryolisse etc.
To me, makeup is a great tool for empowering women, making them feel more confident about themselves. Trends and clients’ needs change over time, that’s why I don't limit myself to certain styles. My aesthetic style as an artist is soft, fresh, timeless and elegant. I really love to enhance my client’s natural beauty, and I like for my clients to look and feel like the best version of themselves.
There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing a smile on my client’s face.
If you are looking for a reliable, friendly and professional makeup artist, don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your needs.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
