My name is Esterella, I am a passionate makeup artist & basic hairstylist, living in the Hague.
Because of my affinity with beauty & fashion, I first studied Beauty therapy in England where I learned about my big interest in skincare and Visagie. I wanted to develop more, so I started Fashion styling and design at Artemis, completing the study at Akademie Voque, in Amsterdam.
After my graduation I did several courses and projects as a stylist for photoshoots, where I gained a vast experience in working on set. I combined my work as a Beauty therapist at a Cosmetic clinic and later a Beauty salon. Here I learned more by applying and advising make up to clients, I then realised that this is the thing I loved doing most!
It was very logical, best of both worlds, combining beauty and creativity. I then signed up for a specialist make up course at Visious Academy to refine my skills at a higher level. To make myself more ‘’all-round’’ I did the Hairstyling on the set training at Bacademy. Ever since, I am working in photography, television, private makeup and bridal sessions.
I love to style into a ‘’good feeling’’, frame and shape the moment. I am a hands-on person with a creative eye, I focus on the concept, therefore I can translate as well as create. Make up, hair and the essence of beauty are my number one drivers, it should catch a beautiful story about the structure, colour, shape and more. My philosophy is beauty within, which can be accentuated and lifted by the movement of colour.
