''Make-up is my passion and this is what I feel blessed about: I've found it. There's nothing that will fulfill me more than becoming a better make-up artist and doing the best I can as one.''
Joana Paraizo

Joana's career has started off one year ago - after finishing her professional Make-Up course at 'Make-Up Artist - Escola de Maquilhagem' in Lisbon, she started out collecting some works to her porfolio.

She has worked as an assistant for Henrique Salvador (Kikas) and Maria João Teixeira, done several works in Fashion Photography, colaborated with some friend photographers Paulo Bailhote, Tiago Pereira, Thomas Bergmair, etc) she also has done make-up and special effects for one music video and three short-films.
Her ultimate passion is Fashion Make-Up and this is the area she's looking forward to build her carreer on.
