I ’m Alina. . .
A mum, a wife, a beautician
& I am a woman just like you.
I began my career in the finance sector, but in 2012 I found my true calling and followed my heart straight into the beauty industry.
I have studied makeup artistry with the most inspiring people at various private makeup classes and makeup schools in Europe and the UK. I am an international, published makeup artist and have worked in fashion, on movie sets, for music album covers & videos. I have also taken part in incredible photo shoots throughout my career. This varied experience has given me the ability to recommend makeup techniques and tips for my clients today, providing them with the knowledge and confidence to be the best version of themselves they can be.
I believe that a confident woman on the outside
will allow her to glow on the inside too.
If you choose a coloured lipstick, don’t go for heavy eye make-up and vice versa. It will look overdone especially as make-unders are the trend of the moment.
Another important rule I use when I do make-up is use your eye and hair colour to your advantage - eyeshadow in the same shade can work surprisingly well.
Lastly, if you’re really struggling with makeup my advice would be to not waste your time, but instead go and have a private lesson which saves time and money.

“Amazing technician love my new sombre eyebrows. Highly recommended Alina. Nice and relaxing environment. Excellent job never had such amazing eyebrows everything just perfect!“
“She was super nice and friendly. She took the time to talk to me about why I wanted the micro-blading and if that was the best option for me based off my daily makeup routine. She was patient as I asked many questions. It was obvious that she has a passion for what she does and she wants her customers to be happy with the final product. I’m so happy with the way my eyebrows turned out.”
