Name: Sanni Sorma
A makeup artist working and living in Paris.
-When did you know that you wanted to become a makeup artist?
When I was 7 yrs old and I secretly started playing with my mother's makeup. It was love at first sight!
-What job have you enjoyed the most?
I enjoy most jobs, it's an exciting field to be in. One that stands out was from last summer when I was the makeup artist for a Mr Hudson music video. Rankin was directing it and I have always admired him, it was an honour to work with him.
-What is the best thing about beeing a makeup artist?
No two days are the same. The wonderful people you meet. Being creative everyday!
-What does your everyday makeup look like?
I always make sure I have great skin, I spend time on good foundation, blush and highlight. I then decide to play up either the eyes or the lips - recently I have done a lot of bright lips for the spring and just used a light eyeshadow with mascara.
-What is your dream job?
I would love to work with Jennifer Lawrence, I love her style and personality. And I would also love to be able to do Brigitte Bardot's makeup in the 60s, I wish I could transport back in time : ) .
-What is your best hair tip on a busy day?
Pull your hair into a top knot, pull out random pieces and hairspray. Very chic and parisian.
-What are your best makeup tips?
Blend your eye makeup longer than you think you need to, always wear great mascara and always wear your look with confidence.

Model since: 2003
-How were you discovered?
"At first I was scouted when I was 13. I was at Liseberg that day. However, I thought I was too young and at the time I didn´t want to work.
2003 I met Sweden Models at a Beauty Fair in Malmö. They took some pictures of me on the spot and then I had to visit the agency for more test images. Since then, I have been working as a model."
-What modeling job have you enjoyed the most?
"It will probably have to be when I worked with the famous photographer Hans Feuer. We were in the Bahamas for a week. But it was only a 3-day job. We rode horses on the beach and all of this later became a beautifull story. I got the job through U magazine."
-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"We get to travel a lot. It is always a great variety of jobs. We meet a lot of new people. Learn new cultures. Visit different countries. It's good money, and I like irregular hours. And I like beeing my own boss."
