This gallery is meant to showcase the many examples which I've made during the year 2012 and my 5-month period of intense study at a noted Finnish Makeup Academy HEADHOUSE. I graduated as a professional Makeup Artist with flying colours and I anticipate lots of fun on this line of career as much as I have had with digital painting.
