Make Up Artist Muamera Pulic Talks Make Up Mistakes That Girls Do
International make-up artist Muamera Pulic orbits the world of lipstick, eyeshadow and mascara and took the opportunity to share with us her personal take on what‘s hot and what‘s not in her own fashion driven universe.
With the 26-year-old starting her career in front of the camera as a model, her creative skills saw her switch positions to now create magic as a make-up artist.
Mumera put her hectic schedule on hold to discuss her do’s and dont’s and how to avoid some common make-up blunders.
Muamera, when did you first become obsessed with make-up?
I actually never got obsessed with ”make-up’’ itself. It’s always been about the colors and letting people into my world. Creating art is very personal to me and sharing my emotions through it, to make people happy, is what I love. In a sense I feel alive when I create.
Is there a special celeb you’d like to make happy by applying your art?
All of them! Lol. But I’d especially love to do the Kardashian’s make-up. I’d like to see my style on their faces.
How would you define your ‘style’? What sets you apart from other make-up artists?
My signature style is very sensual. No matter if the desired look is natural nudist or more dramatic, I always tend to make the model look sexy. It feels a bit like I’m conjuring up some confidence upon their skin. You can clearly see how they transform into strong women; how they start to move their bodies differently and that is what I want: make them feel as comfortable and beautiful as possible.
Obviously that works for you too! What is your personal beauty secret?
Pretty simple really. Stay hydrated and get enough sleep. That’s it basically.
Alright, I have 5 minutes to do my make-up. What can I do that would make the most difference?
Eyebrows, Eyebrows, Eyebrows! Buy an eyebrow mascara brush! That’ll hold your brows in shape during the day and fill them naturally.
Blush – add a bit of color to your (probably) white face when you live in Germany like me Lol.
Last but not least: mascara for that sexy eye-contact with your crush.
Ok, 30 seconds left! Apply a nude lip contour or grab your favorite lipstick. Et Voilá!
That sounds perfect! But what are the most common make up mistakes that girls make?
I think the two biggest and most crucial mistakes I’ve been noticing are choosing the wrong foundation color (lighter or darker than your actual skin-tone) or, and this is even worse, playing the eyebrow game totally wrong.
Let’s turn to the more positive things in your job. What is the most memorable job you’ve ever done?
The most memorable experience I’ve had during my career was a charity job in a nursing home for the sick and disabled. Every two years, Esther Haase (well known German fashion photographer) offered to shoot a calender with twelve seniors, all dressed up and transformed into special roles! The themes and locations were always changing and last year’s topic was Pop Icons! Because of their age and conditions, the seniors don’t often get to participate in many exciting things, so doing their make-up and clothes and putting them into the spotlight felt fantastic! We made them so happy and it was such a touching experience, that none of us will ever forget.
Back to Business. Is there a beauty trend right now that you find particulary exciting?
There are so many trends at the moment… I think the contouring game is still at it’s strongest. It has been taken to a whole other level and its quite amusing watching all these Instagram beauty bloggers trying to set a new trend. One particular girl used a bra silicon pad as a make-up sponge by cutting it into two pieces which was ingenious...
Do you have an all time favorite product?
I don’t know if it’s either the Lipliner from Mac (Whirl) or the Foundation Designer lift from Armani.
MAC or Armani. A lot of people think that expensive products are better than affordable ones. What is your experience?
I don’t believe so… In my opinion it’s all about which products you can work with the best. It has nothing to do with brands or prices in the first place.
How about an own make up line?
That is something I see happening one day.
If you weren’t a make-up artist, what would you be?
Definitely a fashion designer.
Do you have any advice for girls with make up artist aspirations? Is there a secret to success?
Work hard and believe in yourself. Don’t be discouraged by others because there will always be people trying to hold you back. Be truthful and patient and give your very best – everywhere, everytime.
