How did you become a professional hair and makeup artist and what do you love most about your job?
I have always wanted to become a professional hair and makeup artist. At the age of 12 I already bought fashion magazines and tried to copy the beauty looks using my sisters and even my little brothers as models. Being a professional artist in this sector is just a childhood dream come true for me. The best thing about this job is that you get to meet so many new exciting people every day who can become lifetime friends and you travel to so many beautiful places.
What is your favorite beauty tool on set ?
Light Time Cleanse & Glow by thisworks is absolutely my favorite beauty tool, it is a cleanser that also moisturizes your skin and makes it glow. The perfect basis for a natural makeup.
What does your daily beauty routine look like?
Coffee and Beyoncé! I wash my face with Light Time Cleanse & Glow by thisworks cosmetics and apply some moisturizer while blasting Beyoncé. Isn´t that the perfect start into the day?

What achievement are you especially proud of?
I am proud and grateful that I get to do what I love every day in my career and that I met so many inspiring people along the way.
Where do you get your inspiration for new beauty looks from?
My friends, people I see on the street and of course nature. I love flowers and get a lot of inspiration from their shapes and colors.
How do you like to relax in your free time, maybe any great spa tipps?
I love day spas where I spend funny and relaxed Sundays with my girls. For example Blue Spa or Sofitel Spa in Munich. We do peelings, use the different saunas and the swimming pool, read magazines, eat healthy food and talk about men of course.
At home with my husband, our perfect recipe for relaxation is our huge sofa in combination with netflix.
Thank you Arzu for this great interview !
