My name is Celine Cruz, better known as ccmakeupartistt. I am Portuguese living in Germany.
About being a makeup artist, I believe I didn’t choose this profession by chance. For a long time, makeup was my refuge and my light at the end of the tunnel. On sad and dark days, putting on makeup “just” to take a picture was all I had left, and believe me, it made me very happy to see the result and feel beautiful. It made me and makes me very good.
So, I believe that makeup goes far beyond beauty, superficiality or aesthetics, it is a manifest of self-esteem. And self-esteem takes us away from fears, anxiety and depression. I feel that one of my missions on Earth is to do this and do it for love, for pleasure.
I love all kinds of makeup, but my favorite is definitely bodypaint or full-bodypaint! I feel that I can be whoever I want, be creative and express everything I feel when I pick up the brush.
Recently I have been working more on full body painting using my own body to create characters involved in movies, series and even in the Disney world! I created a harry potter saga and was recognized by the harry potter page, which made me very grateful for everything.
I’m very grateful for everything I’ve achieved so far, I started with very little, with 1 eyeshadow palette and 3 brushes! But I went ahead and in my heart, I knew this was what I wanted for the rest of my life! I’m confident that one day I can work on special effects, bodypainting or makeup people in movies, series etc… but in the meantime, I’ll fight every day to make my dream come true.
I just want to thank you for the opportunity given to tell my story of my dream. I hope people can go see what I do to see how much love I put in each makeup. You can check out more on my socials ~ @ccmakeupartistt
