Pticaveverica Make-Up Artist – Interview

Milena Milcevic as known as Pticaveverica is a young and energetic make-up artist, who gave us a wonderful refreshment on stage. Milena will share with us part of her journey and experiences, with an honest view of the market, but also give important advice on how to look perfect on your wedding day.

WHEN WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU REALISED YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEAUTY AND MAKE-UP?

First time I showed that initiative at the beginning of high school. In the beginning, I started to do makeup for my friends before a night out. That was a click and I felt huge passion which aroused something special in me. I felt a great need to continue with this work ‘cause I didn’t feel tired. Contrary, it gave me the energy to move on.

HOW DO YOU FEEL AS AN ARTIST TOWARDS EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS, SHOULD YOU SLOW DOWN A BIT AND LISTEN TO YOUR HEAD AND HEART OR LESS THE INSTAGRAM FEED?

A huge number of non-identical products on social networks was made for the sensation of likes and visits, it was not made for something practical. It doesn’t even have to be practical. Instagram isn’t made to be practical but to be a sensation.
Those two things need to be separated, but there are always people who can show that things can be done in other ways as well.

I participate in the Jasmin perfumery campaign with about thirty other make-up artists with the idea that women should come closer to make-up and that women can see that they can be good at make-up with a little product. It is not everything in the service of commercial and sales. Women should understand that can go out to a supermarket, corner shop, etc., only with a small amount of lipstick, mascara, and powder. That means with minimal make-up and they will be fabulous!

HOW MUCH DID THE ACADEMY HELP IN AVOIDING INITIAL MISTAKES IN THE BEGINNING AND TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF MORE CLEARLY?

Education is very important and it helped me a lot. Dragan Vurdelja is one of our greatest experts in this branch and his every sentence and advice is worth it. It was a great springboard for me to do what I did next. I went to him exclusively for knowledge. But it turned out that working with him helped me a lot in life. So it is very important where and with whom you go for education.

YOU WORKED A LOT WITH CELEBRITIES FROM THE WORLD OF TELEVISION, WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE WORLD OF WEDDINGS? 

Organising a wedding is usually a very stressful period especially for a couple that wants everything to be perfect. Brides want their day to be the most beautiful. But sometimes, tiredness is the most visible on the face. Self-care is how you take your power back. So before the wedding, the makeup artist needs to speak with the bride. To make an agreement with her about location, about her ideas and make-up looks for her special day.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR OUR BRIDES ON HOW TO PREPARE FOR MAKE-UP AND WHAT ACTIVITIES THEY SHOULD AVOID IN THE PERIOD BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

This is an amazing question because women on that day want something perfect on the skin that is not their daily routine. Bridal make up is the most beautiful one!
Women all truly want beautiful well-groomed skin, and if they don’t take care of their skin daily, sometimes come to a make-up artist and expect the impossible. If you think to look beautiful so that your skin is a healthy complexion, you have to take care with it.

From my experience, the biggest problem women have is inadequate skin care. It takes a minimum of 15 days before the wedding for the bride to start the treantment. For the result to be good, a lot of things need to be taken through the skin. Hydration and peeling, provided that they are not of the aggressive type.

Skin massage, pilings, and masks are very good. If you have acne, it would be desirable to start with some non-aggressive treatments even earlier so that the result of the make-up artist would be as good as possible. Of course, sleep is very important and stress relief. Insomnia and stress affect the appearance of the skin the most.

 
YOU MENTIONED DIFFERENT TYPES OF SKIN AND WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON CHALLENGES WITH SOME BASIC TYPES?

It is very difficult to work with a problematic skin type…there are few dry, oily, and combo. For people who have pimples and acne or inflammatory processes, in the beginning, it is difficult to get a result. We should say goodbye to the fact that it will make makeup look like healthy skin. It requires a lot of treatment Everything else can generally be sorted out.
