Why I Love To Use These Brands

Of course, Kōena is my personal beauty brand which I love most. 
While I take pride in shaping a beauty brand that is completely free of synthetics and only based on natural ingredients, it is inevitable to also use other brands for professional makeup services. My lineup is still growing and I cannot yet cover everything with Kōena products. 
This is particularly true for TV, photoshootings, magazines and special events where the short moment of perfection is more important than maximum skin-care or a natural look. 
The difference between all these makeup brands is huge and I picked my favorite brands very carefully. Many of them are limiting the amount of synthetic ingredients and focus on being high-quality makeup products that let your beauty shine!


I am trained and certified by Beni Durrer and was able to learn from his decade long work experience with German celebrities and TV Stars. His products are of highest quality with fantastic textures and are very easy to blend, mix and apply. Every product has a name of the Berlin Lifestyle, these products are very authentic and so fun to work with. 
Since his beauty school opening, he has created color shades for dark skin shades and is now ahead of many other brands that just start to learn now how important these shades are! 
"I wanted an exclusive make-up brand that offered customers the know-how of a professional at an affordable price" - Beni Durrer


While I worked for the Shiseido Group in Germany, I have gotten in touch with this classy brand. I love the texture of these products and the very soft and elegant colors. My absolute favorite product is the Caviar Black Volume Mascara. Laura Mercier is a perfect brand for everyone who likes the "elegant chic" style.
Laura Mercier, pioneer of the Flawless Face, is a world-renowned makeup artist and continues to make artistry effortless through her intuitive approach to beauty and philosophy: “What makes you unique makes you beautiful."


I loved to work for this brand in Nuremberg, Germany, and admire the ingredients which make your skin look better and more natural. The minerals and vitamins in the products can make the skin really healthier. They claim to be the Creators of Clean Beauty when bareMinerals launched their best-selling mineral foundation in 1995: "We're full of what's good and free of what's not."


Kryolan  is THE brand in the german theatre and TV scene. Professional colors, easy textures, high coverage and very functional products. The shade collection is sorted for EVERY colorshade out there! I really love that!
"At Kryolan, we make make-up. But not like anybody else. We've been doing this over 70 years. And we're still doing it today. There is only one real professional makeup maker. There is only one Kryolan."


I worked for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in Munich, Germany and I like the brand so much because you can create very simple day looks as well as high-end photoshoot looks with these high quality products. The eyeliners are the very creamy and the famous shimmer bricks are just one of the many practical multi-use products with a stunning finish.
"Beauty begins with you. When the brand was founded nearly 30 years ago, this was our vision - and we champion it today. We make makeup that enhances - not hides - your true beauty." - Bobbi Brown

Ben Nye 

Ben Nye is a professional makeup brand serving artists, educators, and makeup fans worldwide.
The company was founded by legendary Hollywood makeup artist, Ben Nye, Sr., in 1967, who used his extensive knowledge to create quality color cosmetics. The Ben Nye brand has broadened to encompass every genre of makeup including performance, beauty and special effects. Ben Nye remains a family business, with most products still hand-crafted in Los Angeles.


Forty years ago, two friends were inspired to start a company that would support the success of hairdressers and provide luxury hair care at an affordable price. "With just $700, they launched a revolutionary hair care system with three products: Shampoo One®, Shampoo Two®, and The Conditioner®. Today, their dream is a reality." Today they offer over 100 products and are active in over 80 countries. 
This is an absolute cult American hair product brand with a huge and professional product palette which is often used in exclusive hair salons. Paul Mitchell Beauty Schools offer cosmetologist and esthetician classes which underlines their professionality and know-how! 

shu uemura

Products designed as tools. Services thought of as ceremonies. Hairdressers who are hair masters.
Mr. Shu Uemura, the pioneer of the brand, fervently believed in the idea of holistic beauty. It was his belief that “hairdressing is never complete without beautiful make-up and beautiful make-up is never complete without beautiful skin.” Shu Uemura Art of Hair aims to promote holistic beauty through providing essential hair care and styling products with unique formulas & ingredients that are able to be blended into tailor-made perfection to compensate to each individual’s unique hair needs.


The Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation is tested and approved by 100% of Dior professional makeup artists.* With its fluid texture and second skin finish, this ultra-buildable foundation offers custom-made intensity.** * Extreme condition-proof for 91% of women. ** Photo-ready finish for 95% of women.
Enriched with beauty-enhancing pigments, the formula fuses with skin that glows for a perfect, natural complexion in real life and through the camera's lens. The waterproof formula of the Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation creates an invisible mesh on the skin and resists extreme conditions: workout sessions, water, extreme temperatures and humid environments. It even resists the bright lights both backstage and above the catwalk.

Scott Barnes

Scott Barnes has created every aspect of his makeup brand from the ground up, releasing five brand new palettes on November 21st. He realized that, "there was a serious lack of affordable luxury makeup in the market, and I wanted to create makeup that allowed everyone to obtain the highest level of quality they deserve." Born on Earth Day, April 22nd, Barnes's makeup brand is made from international ingredients from around the world, and lovingly made in glass bottles, safe both for your face, and for the earth. And no one has more experience in both the use and creation of makeup.

Barnes was hired earlier in his career by Shu Uemura to revamp his Atelier Made line, which became a huge success. By the time he was ready to create his own brand, in 2004, his work had graced every cover from VOGUE to Vanity Fair. He had worked with every best photographer in the world, from Annie Liebovitz to Francesco Scavullo, and worked his artistry on every iconic face from Beyonce to Julianne Moore. Barnes now has three decades of knowing exactly what works, and has perfected his own palettes on JLo during their two decades and counting, duet.

He even used them for her It’s My Party tour, and on her recent film Hustlers, and as result he is giving us all the results of his unparalleled eye, and commitment to perfection. In essence: The Star Treatment. Scott Barnes’s makeup brand is a love letter he is putting out into the world to share with everyone who wants the opportunity to be the best version of themselves. “I want to give sanctity and ritual to what every woman does in front of her own bathroom mirror.”

COVID-19 Hygiene Regulations

Your health and beauty is my highest priority.
Therefore, I have hygiene standards that I would like to share with you.

What You Can Expect
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all my services are provided with me wearing a mask at any time in order to protect you. The mask is disposed after every client. Equipment, personal devices and utensils are constantly sanitized with disposable 99.99% disinfectant wipes.  

Sanitization Standards
I wash my hands thoroughly before and after every client for at least 30 seconds.
Before applying cosmetic products, I disinfect my hands.
All makeup sponges are disposed to avoid bacteria and infections.
For applying Mascara, I use disposable mascara wands to avoid eye infections. For any other application techniques I use disposable cotton pads, disposable lip wands or disposable wipes. 
Cleansing and skincare products are only used out of tubes or are taken out with the help of a disposable cotton swab.

In order to maintain a high standard of hygiene, I only work with deeply cleaned brushes which are washed and disinfected before each client.
Before I use the brushes for a makeup service, I disinfect the brushes with a 99,99% bacteria and virus disinfectant. 
I have enough brushes at my disposal so that I can use enough cleaned and unused brushes for each client. 

Additional Hygiene Measures
The makeup cape is deep cleaned before every client and I have multiple capes with me in case of additional client services.
I disinfect all makeup surfaces, including the clients stool and mirror with a 99.99% bacteria and virus disinfect before I open my cosmetic equipment bag and setting up my work station. After finishing the service, I sanitize and wipe all equipment. Garbage what is produced during the hair and makeup service will be removed from me in a garbage bag and immediately thrown away. 

If you feel suddenly sick, having symptomes or live with someone who has Covid-19, please inform me to reschedule the appointment and avoid the spread of the virus. In case you are not sure, please let's play it safe and postpone your appointment.

Stay safe and stay healthy!
