Hallo, bienvenue and welcome to my homepage!
My name is Carmen Mbele, I was born and raised in Germany where I worked for 21 years as a professional Make-up artist and hairstylist.
-- From an early age I discovered my passion for art, colors and forms, the fascination for faces, expression, fashion and photography.
So my profession was fixed: Make-up artist.
I graduated 21 years ago as a beautician in Munich and in other additional courses I have learned various makeup skills and hair styling techniques.
Since then, I worked as a make-up artist for Lancôme, Bobby Brown, Helena Rubinstein, Dior, YSL, agencies, advertisements, fashion catalogs, onlineshops, magazines, runways, various artists and celebrities. I worked as a sales manager for Chanel, as a teacher at some recommended make-up schools in Cologne and Düsseldorf. I had the privilege to work with many professional photographers and models around Europe.
I love to be part of a creative team to turn ideas into a stunning picture. In 20 years in this field, I have gained great experience in several types of photography, trends and expressions. I believe in this kind of work you never stop learning.
In addition to these professional clients, I have accompanied many private clients for photography sessions, corporate portraits and also many brides as a make-up artist and stylist.
Now I am here in Montreal, this beautiful city where I ended up for love and I am very happy to bring here my passion and my experience as a make-up artist and flourish in this magnificent city.
I want to apologize that my French is not yet good, but I am working on it!
