“I get inspired by a lot of things! I get inspired by nature, music, movies, weird shapes and color combinations and sometimes other artists for example from Instagram.”
There are so many markup artists in the world but none like Maria Boucht. Maria’s makeup is otherworldly, creating amazing creations using her talent and techniques. This is what Maria had to say when we sat down with her-
Where did you learn all your makeup techniques?
I have been practising couple of years now and in the beginning I watched a lot of make-up related YouTube tutorials which have really helped my make-up skills get better. Lately I have been trying to come up with new techniques myself like creating eyemakeup looks with dots and creating make-up looks with real flower petals.
What inspired you to become a makeup artist?
I am actually not a certified make-up artist but I am self-taught make-up enthusiast. I do hope someday I can call myself a certified MUA!
You create such unique eye makeup. How do you come up with some of your ideas?
I get inspired by a lot of things! I get inspired by nature, music, movies, weird shapes and color combinations and sometimes other artists for example from Instagram. Instagram is a great way to find inspiration and also show people your interests and maybe gain some following. I also like to use Tumblr to find inspiration.
Have you ever thought of creating tutorials for makeup?I actually have thought of doing make-up tutorials and people have actually asked me to make some but I haven’t had the time and a proper set up to film good videos. Maybe someday soon I am able to publish some make-up tutorials too with my Instagram pictures.
Where do you see your makeup headed in the future?
I hope in the future my make-up artwork will be noticed by more and more people and I am able to work with popular make-up brands and have many other great opportunities.
