I veckan kontaktade jag Teresa Grundin för att prata lite om höstens starkaste sminktrender, vilka som är de fulaste skönhetstrenderna genom tiderna och hur det är att jobba i den hårda modebranchen egentligen. Jag menar, här snackar vi ju ändå om en otroligt erfaren person på området som har jobbat med allt ifrån H&M, ELLE och Vouge till Kate Moss. Läs artiklen här!
This week I contacted Teresa Grundin, one of Swedens biggest Make Up Artists to get to know a little bit more about this seasons make up-trends and what it’s like to work in the though fashion industry. And she know this industry well, she has worked with everything from Elle, H&M, Voge to Kate Moss! I’ve translated her answers for you below:
Hi Teresa! You must have one of the world’s most fun jobs. What made you become a Make up artist, and how did you get to where you are today? - I have definitely the world’s best job! I started to educate myself to hairdresser, then I moved to Stockholm and educated myself to a make up artist. Then followed a period of hard work as an assistant to several different makeup with no salary at all. But it was worth it because that’s when I started to build up the amazing contacts that I have today!
You have been responsible for the make up in many extremely big productions. Is there any specially fun memory you remember? - This is the hardest question of all because I, through my job, have got into a lot of fun and exciting situations over the years. It’ll probably be a single memory of having experienced fantastic people, hotels and places from all over the world through the job. I have among other things been in LA, Miami, New York, South Africa, India, Morocco, Shanghai, London, Rome, Rio, Mexico, Thailand, etc. and worked. It feels absolutely amazing!
Which beauty trends do you think will be the strongest this season? - The strongest makeup trends for fall, according to me, is colored lashes, smoky eyes and lips in shades of pink/cerise/burgundy. Even colored eyeshadows feels new and fresh for fall.
And finally, you’ve experienced the fashion industry from the inside, is it really as tough and ruthless as it seems in media? - Haha, no, not if you play your cards right! But it sure is pretty tough sometimes with long hours and egocentric designers but mostly it is just beautiful and a wonderful environment to work in.
