Marina Sandoval started her career in South America in the early 1990′s. After a couple of years she moved to London to work as a Nail Technician for John Frieda and Neville Salons.
It was here that she met leading hair stylists Orlando Pita and Broni who introduced Marina to the fashion scene in Italy and London. She made her name working with many famous clients, such as Sophia Loren, Elle Macpherson, Demi Moore to name but a few!
During this time she met two of the world’s leading make-up artists; Michelle Bayliss and Diego Dalla Palma, who inspired Marina to go on to study and gain diplomas in make-up artistry at Scuola BCM Milano for fashion studies, and Greasepaint Academy in London for theatrical and television make-up.
She assisted for 2 years before being spotted by Untitled Photography, Hair and Make Up Agency, London/New York. Since then, as well as working with her private clients, Marina’s work has spanned from creating nail and make-up looks for leading magazines, to working on advertising creations for YSL, Christian Dior, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, all whilst working with leading photographers including Mario Testino.
Today, Marina’s great experience and knowledge has led her to launch a range of make-up and nail services for all to enjoy…
“I have a great passion for make-up and grooming nails to perfection! Every face is unique and I believe with the right products and application, every woman can look naturally radiant. With my make-up I love to capture and reveal a woman’s inner beauty.”
