July Featured Makeup Artist Livia Rideg
Livia Rideg-Master Makeup Artist
Much of the time our featured makeup artist posts focus on our newer students who usually are fairly new to the wonderful world of makeup. We commend their total immersion into our world and get a thrill out of sharing all their successes in this field. However, this month we would like to share with you the work of an artist who has been in this industry for over 16 years now, and has had her fair share of successes. Not only is she one of our best students, but Livia Rideg is also a master makeup artist professional and makeup educator.
Originally from Serbia, Livia has been working at a professional photography studio, YH studios, in Media City where she teaches all the way from basic to advanced makeup artist courses. In her classes, she focuses on teaching her students about the media makeup industry so they have a better understanding of how it all works, which translates in their work and with their clients. Livia has had a tremendous amount of experience throughout the past decade working in Serbia where she was in charge of organizing professional events such as photo shoots, fashion shows, and beauty competitions. Through all this work, she was able to master not only makeup styling for any occasion, but also hair styling.
Livia has been very blessed in her career to have been able to work with fashion designers, photographers, celebrities and models from all over the world. Being so involved in industry, she is able to blend the newer techniques and products with her own creative style. Her overall approach is very artistic and fashionable and she loves experimenting. Working with hundreds of different artists throughout her career she is able to see such a broad range of techniques, styles and skills all of which help her in her own practice.”
If you check out Livia’s Instagram account, you can see how versatile her skills are. From clean to edgy to glamourous, she has completely nailed every look she has gone for, and the people have noticed. Livia won first place in 2013 in the Kryolan makeup artist competition, then in 2014 won first in the QC Makeup Academy Halloween Makeup Contest. Then later in 2014 she became first in the Kryolan Divine Serenity makeup artist competition as well as listed in the top 12 makeup artists in UAE.
Currently, this Hungarian makeup artist is based in Dubai and continues to have tremendous success. She was recently selected to represent UAE on the Eurasian Beauty Championship hair and makeup 2016 in Baku, Azerbaijan where she won 1st place! We are extremely proud of her accomplishments and we know that there is more to come with her.
