FAQ• WHAT'S YOUR HERITAGE AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
My mother is french and my dad is portuguese.
I was born in Paris, and was raised there the first 7 years. Then we moved to the south of France with my parents, stayed for a few couple of years and then moved to the central countryside, where they still live. I studied in various french cities after highschool, and then moved to London in 2006 and stayed there till 2008 studying english & working as a nanny. And since I came back in 2008, I live in Paris!
• WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
As a pluridisciplinary artist, I work officially as a musician (jazz singer and composer), singing teacher, graphic designer (specialized in poster designing), and make up artist.
• WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES ASIDE OF MAKE UP?
I’m a huge cookery fan. I have a food blog! if you want to take a look at it, here’s the address : http://tildzbox.net/food . I love sharing food tips, lovely meals that won’t cost much yet taste yummy.
• WHAT'S YOUR MAKE UP STORY?
Well, I always loved make from what I can remember. As soon as I was able to speak I asked my mother for lipstick, and got very angry when she said no, pointing out to her that “I, too, am a woman!” haha I was very cute back then.
Yet, I didn’t really wear makeup even when I was about 14 where all I had was a black pencil and a mascara. My mom used to buy me high end concealer and foundation for my birthday, but I didn’t wear those everyday and anyway borrowed a lot from her stuff too when I would run out.
I got slightly more experimental when I was in London, but all I was wearing on a reg. basis was a taupe eyeshadow, black pencil, liquid liner and mascara. At the time, I owned one shadow brush only, and only had one powder + brush, a tinted moisturizer and a concealer . Somehow, when I look at my actual stash, I find it hard to believe I had so little haha
Then when I came back to France, and started doing more and more concerts, that’s when I started to get really into it, having NO money whatsoever for a make up artist to come and do my make up ever time. And TADAH, here I am today, addicted, blogging about it, and working in the make up artistry and all haha.
