YAN'S OMINTARA

Professional Makeup Artist

My story.....

I started to become interested in Make Up during my high school days 1994-1997 in Padang and later, during my university studies (Diploma 3 Ekonomi Marketing) as well in Padang, I had my first Make up freelance jobs for family members and friends - followed by a local Padang Model Agency that hired me frequently for photo-shootings and all kinds of modelling events – this clearly opened my door to more and more interest, knowledge and deeper experiences in doing Make Up.
After graduating from University 2001 some marketing related jobs followed. In 2002 I moved to Jakarta and worked furthermore for the next three years in the same field, concentrating in the perfume and make up business – but also busy with smaller Make Up side jobs – finally in 2005 I decided to leave the marketing behind me and to move to my real world, the Make Up world.
At that time it happened that I met the well acclaimed make up artist Firmansyah and I began to work in close cooperation with Firmansyah which widened my Make Up experiences covering many different themes, back ups and motivations in the advertisement-, movie -, television -, magazine- and private events fields and helped me to develop my own Mark Up style, to create my own signature.
I love my job, I live for my job - the colourful world of Make Up, the fantastic challenge that every new jobs brings with it, the make up art which we have to create, the development of new techniques, all this and much more still fascinates me every day and I am very happy that I already could serve so many people, professional as well as private persons (above all weddings) with my Make Up creations and to have seen so many happy faces – is there any nicer reward?
