“MAKEUP SAVED MY LIFE”
Viktorija Bowers was born and raised in the sunny Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, where she grew up studying the rituals of beauty in her mother’s hair salon.
Those Rituals taught her that personal interaction and the caring touch can do wonders, not just physically but emotionally. She believes that role of the makeup artist is to set the mood for the shoot with easy going personality and nurturing environment for everyone involved. She was given an opportunity to work with makeup by MAC cosmetics, where during some of her hardest periods of her life, make up has given her hope and career. She took it further than makeup counter, but those beginnings allowed her to work on different races and ages and meet wonderful people with many life stories. Makeup saved her life and gave her purpose.

She has also appeared on TV as makeup expert on TV shows, as well as various public speaking engagements ranging from Sephora classes to introduction videos for cosmetic companies and magazines like Benefit, Tweezerman, NYC Color Project, The fashion Spot to name the few.
