After a small pause in our team members presentations (more on that later), we continue this week with Aicha Ait Boulahcen.
What is your role in the team?
First off, I’d like to express how happy I am to be part of this super creative team. I am thrilled by the recent projects we delivered, and can’t wait to work on new ones! Now, as for the question, I double as make up artist and hair stylist.
How did you get into make up art?
Make up art is my childhood dream. When I was little, I always looked up to my aunt and her perfect make up, and I loved how she would do my lips and nails. From then on, I knew that this would be my passion and dream job.
What is your favorite part of the creative process?
I really like to create and propose different looks that fit the theme of the photo shoot. I am a very proud of my work, so I make a point of adding a little bit of me in every look.
Where does your inspiration come from?
I find inspiration in many things I see or experience, but at the core of my job there is of course, fashion. I go through a lot of fashion magazines and social media sites, such as Pinterest or facebook.
Share your favorite book or artwork with us.
I will mention magazines instead:

What other projects are you currently working on?
I do not have projects other than this one, but I am a full time make up artist at MAC cosmetics! That keeps me very busy already (laughs).
Working at MAC is a boon, I like to be on the edge of what can be done with both talent and great products.

Why a break in the team presentations?
Well, let’s just say that we all fell a little ill, at the same time! Coughs and a mild fever spread accross the studio like wildfire. Probably the sudden change in temperature… The point being, the last few articles were tough to wrap up. On a more positive note, this gave us some leeway to showcase our commercial work of Marie Van Gils lingerie collection. I am sure you did not mind!
Have a great weekend and see you next week!
