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.

Alwasy start with a primer. It´s easy to say that it´s crucial for a day like your graduation day. You want to make sure that your makeup looks flawless all day.
With the waterproof eye pen you can bring intensity to your eyes. (Deep Grey or Deep Brown).
1. Look down and use a finger to carefully pull the outer corner of your eye outwards. Draw a soft line along the upper lash line. Start from the outer corner and work your way inwards. Repeat the steps when doing the lower lash line, but look up instead of down.
2. Make sure you draw the line as close to the lash line as possible.
3. It´s OK if you're not steady on your hand, beacause the next step is to use the smudge tool on the other end of the pen to smoothen out the line.
To make sure that you stay fab all day, use the Volume & Length Mascara. It´s water resistant (not waterproof) and will last all day and does not smudge. (Models favourite).
The Cosmo Red nail polish makes sure that you stand out. Pale Pink gives you a sweet and natural look.
They are high-gloss, easy to apply, quick drying, long-lasting and has brilliant shine.
Bring the moisturising and shiny lipgloss with you all day, and touch up when needed. (Shimmering Nectar or Sparkling Pink)

Model since: "I think I started when I was 16, so it has to be in 2011."
-When did you know that you wanted to become a model?
"When I saw all the beautiful ladies in the magazines...I wanted to be just like them."
-How were you discovered?
"Me and my friend had a deal, if I went to an agency, she would stop "picking" on me, so I did...And then I suddenly became an model. "
-What modeling job have you enjoyed the most?
"When I went to Copenhagen for a work for Kevin.Murphy. It was a big show and we were somewhere around 35-50 models, all from the same agency and we were all friends - we had so much fun and it was a blast!
But the absolute best model job that I have ever made was when I went to Stockholm and did a job for Björn Axén, where they treated me like I was a supermodel - which was super fun!!"
-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"You will never be a pro, there are always something new to learn, a new pose or something like that. You always surprise yourself with new sides of yourself that you never knew existed."
-What´s always in your purse?
"Lipgloss, eyeliner (if I´m going out I don't need to go home and re-do my makeup, I just put some eyeliner on), perfume and hairbrush."
-What modeling job is your dream job?
"To be the new Victoria Secret PINK model. That would be amazing."
-What are your best makeup tips?
"Keep it simple. Your makeup is not supposed to cover your beauty - it´s supposed to bring out the beauty inside of you.
Don´t spend money on crappy makeup, choose something that is of good quality and your skin will thank you - keep in mind that you only have one skin, not two.
If you want beautiful skin - treat if beautifully. Never sleep with makeup on, always prefer water over soda, and never forget to have a good cream with a high SPF when you are out in the sun during summer.
A tip! If you had a red lipstick on and you want to go back to nude again - take some lip balm and leave it on the red lipstick for 5 minutes, and try to wash it of. It´s easier to wash of the red lipstick when your lips are moisturized than it is when they are dry."
