How I became a Makeup artist?
My name is Adrienn Ihasz. I became interested in beauty and makeup from early age. I remember I was around 9 years old when I realized ladies wear makeup and they look nice. Later as a true Libra, I started to like everything related beauty: magazines, photography, makeup, hair.
I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. There are many American films made in Budapest. One of them was “Evita” in 1996, starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas. I was a huge Madonna fan at that time so I decided to sign up as an extra in the film. Not only I could watch Madonna and Banderas acting from close but I also loved the working makeup artists on set. All the lights, makeup chairs and of course makeup!
After a while I found myself in a makeup chair again doing commercials for companies like Coca Cola, Wrigley’s and T-Mobile. I met many talented makeup artists during that time and was fascinated about the transformation they did with makeup. There were times when photographers asked me to do makeup on their models. I also did makeup on my Mom and friends.
For couple of years, I was working for a film studio, then a pharmaceutical company, behind the desk.
After my son was born I decided to follow my dreams. I wanted to create every day something new, something special - and to make people happy! I took the step to learn more about professional makeup.
I attended Fashion Art Makeup School in Budapest and learnt from Linda Simko.
After that we moved from Budapest to Southern California. I wanted to learn more about makeup and hair, I signed up at Cosmo Makeup Academy in Orange.
Later I attended in Master class with celebrity Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic - Kim Kardashian’s Makeup artist - to learn his techniques.
I also constantly update myself on latest trends and products, which is necessary in the makeup world.
My goal is to create a flawless look to enhance features, so each client can leave my chair 100% confident. My purpose is to transform ladies to their very best to make them look and feel beautiful providing a calming and relaxing environment during makeup application. I always carefully listen to my client’s needs and my focus is to give each person the best possible experience through a personalized service.
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to beautify ladies, make them happy and in the end the smile on their face is indescribable.
Hope to see you in my chair soon!
