More than an artist – What makes you more than an artist? 

I am in love with all aspects of the arts ranging from fashion, makeup, to music and theater but I also have a degree in the fashion business, so I do enjoy the business side of the arts as well.

Favorite makeup beauty trend of the season?

Dewy skin and highlighter

Favorite wedding trend of the season?

Monochromatic makeup (lip and lids matching)

What is your skincare routine and what would you recommend for clients?

     For me, good makeup comes from good skin! So skin care is critical. Personally, I mostly use all natural products when it comes to my skin; Daily wash I try to stick with charcoal based products like the Deep cleansing charcoal wash from Biore or I will use 100% pure African black soap. For daily moisture on my face, I use 100% pure Shea butter. Also, a face mask once a week or every two weeks is key.( Kiehl’s rare earth ask, seaweed-based masque) I think if you do them more then that your skin begins to get used to it and it no longer works. I try to minimize my use of foundation to only when necessary or just apply to problem areas and blending into the skin that way, for the most part, my skin can breathe.
For my Clients, I like to start off with a clean face of course then go in with The Mario Badescu facial spray with Aloe, cucumber, and Green Tea after that I use the oil-free moisturizer. Lastly, I use Korres wild rose smoothing moisturizer & primer. I would recommend MILK hydrating oil to anyone trying to get that dewy or glow look. The oil is made with all natural ingredients and is light, so it doesn’t clog pores.

Proudest moment as an artist?

My proudest moment as an artist was when MilkMakeup recognized me. I was apart of a test shoot with little intention for it to turn into such high recognition in the beauty industry.   I was so happy and proud of this experience to have this recognition

If you could work with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why? 

I would love to work with Grace Jones;  I think her bone structure is just amazing !!

What is something about you that some people might not know?

My favorite fashion era is the 80’s!

What is one of your favorite makeup looks you have created in your career?

The project title was ” Elephant in the Room: for the new Fashion magazine ” Luxy”. The reason why this is one of my favorite looks is that I like the way the pink blended with her skin and with her freckles. Also, she just rocked it !!

Also, check out our last feature if you missed it with Anna- Connecticut Bridal Makeup Artist- BEhind The BEauty

Beauty Entourage is an artist collaboration like no other when it comes to travel bridal services for makeup and hairstyling. Our artist’s on our CT makeup teams are highly vetted for specific reasons that go beyond the talent they can provide. What I love about our artistry is the passion of the people that truly LOVE what they do. Our BEhind the BEauty series will showcase not only the talents of the artists on our teams but, also who they are that made us choose them, As the owner of the company I think it’s important to know who the people are that will represent something I take so much pride in. I love our clients, the people that work for me, and most of all what I do. I am so excited to share with you all our amazing team, one by one.

Anna Gaevskaya

Anna joined our CT makeup artist team last wedding season in 2017. She was new to the US from Russia and we met, I believe not too long after her arrival. Instantaneously I knew she would be a great fit. Before meeting, I was blown away by her talent and range from her portfolio. Seeing this I always get excited to see who is the person behind the work.. (Or beauty, pun intended! Ha!).

She was sweet and talked about not only how much she loved what she did but, also why. There was no question she had the ability to work with our clients but, her reasoning why was what made me know she would be a great addition. Anna had come to the U.S. to pursue opportunity and wanted to be apart of something she loved back home. In Russia she traveled for weddings and worked for top companies that provided hair and makeup for brides. She loves being apart of such an important day and when she says that, you can feel it. Her attention to detail and her ability to make someone’s skin glow is her specialty. Anna joined our team as a newlywed herself and loved all things bridal!

This is Anna’s 2nd wedding season on our CT makeup artist team and we have been able to support her with additional training in airbrush makeup. When she first moved here, she didn’t have a car but, was committed to being available whenever and where ever we needed her. I am so proud of our team members that believed in her too as we paired her with artists throughout the season that picked her up on the way to bookings.  This season she is ready to go and now a lead artist on our makeup team! Congrats Anna for your successes and also transition into the U.S.  It has been amazing to take part in your growth.

We are so proud to have you and thank you for being apart of our BE fam.
