MIRTA PEJIC | MAKE-UP ARTIST
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING MAKE-UP FOR?
I have been doing Make-Up for about 10 years now.
WHERE DID YOU STUDY?
I finished Pro Focus school of make-up in Zagreb and then the “Valentino” school of make-up in Stuttgart, but most of my make-up experience comes from years of practice, on shoot, shows etc…
WHAT MADE YOU GET INTO MAKE-UP?
I used to dance for 15 years and started to do make-up for other dancers. It started as a hobby, but I always enjoyed make-up and fashion and decided to do it professionally.
I can’t single out someone. There are many influences like Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Gwen Stefani… Anyone from haute couture to Amy Winehouse, basically. Well, what can I say, I’m still exploring.
WHERE’S THE HOTTEST PLACE TO GO IN THE CROATIA RIGHT NOW?
The coast is always hot during summer. For the perfect mixture of beautiful nature and clubbing I’d recommend island hopping (Hvar, Pag…), or if you feel romantic old cities like Dubrovnik, Zadar, Plitvice lakes… Zagreb is fun in Autumn.
WHO SHOULD WE BE LOOKING OUT FOR?
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Well, it depends on my mood. There are so many things I like at the moment and I like to make my own mix of different styles like chic trash with something feminine or something cosy casual.
WHAT DO YOU MISS WHEN YOU ARE NOT AT HOME?
My dog, if he’s not with me. Usually, it’s just the comfort of my home.
IF YOU COULD BUY A PLANE TICKET WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
Marrakech / Peru / New York / anywhere… I just want to see the whole world.
WHAT’S THE HOTTEST TREND IN THE CROATIA RIGHT NOW?
I don’t think there’s any special trend prevailing at the moment. People in the streets have their own unique different styles – maybe that’s the trend! You’ll catch me wearing a lot of yellow and lacquer materials this fall.
My boyfriend… I love him!
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Right now?? Snoop Dogg – my medicine
MAKE A WISH?
I wish room full of candy.
