Brazilian Makeup Artist
Ariane Yury Ribeiro is a young makeup artist; she is half Japanese, and she grows up until the age of 14 in Brazil when she came to Austria without any German her only way of expression was through art. Soon she started taking painting classes and she discovered her passion for visual arts.
Today she is a successful makeup artist, which we discover not too long ago. We talked to Ariane to see how she started her way to the top, and from where she takes her inspiration.
When did you know that you wanted to be a makeup artist?
I spent much of my childhood helping out in beauty salons in Brazil where my mother worked at the time. When I came to Austria, I barely spoke German and so I used to paint to express myself. My passion for visual art and beauty has stayed with me ever since. So one day I figured, why not combine the both?
Who are some people that have inspired you throughout your career?
My mum, she’s a really great hairdresser. She knew how to treat Afro hair really well and seeing her happy clients really inspired me. I want my clients to have the same sparkle in their eyes.
Artist-wise, I love the work of L.A. makeup artist Felicia La Tour. Brazilian makeup artist Augustin Fernandez who taught me to keep it real. Last but not least, hair stylist & makeup artist Maikel June Bleyer who introduced me to the fashion world and whose stories I still get to enjoy while working together for Babyliss.
How long have you been a makeup artist and how did you get your start in the industry?
I joined Cambio Beauty academy in January where I got to work at various fashion shows. In July, I moved to Vienna to start my makeup business and take over the world *evil laugh*.
How would you describe your signature look and what is it about your style that sets you apart from other makeup artists?
Glossy red lips, very light contouring, nude eyes and a highlighter matching the skin tone.
I think, my diversity. I’m half Brazilian, half Japanese, and based in Austria. My roots literally span 3 continents and have created a world view that reflects on my art.
What’s your favourite makeup forever product?
These three things are a must have for me:
Origins GinZing refreshing scrub cleanser, Origins Clear Improvement active charcoal mask and Clinique moisture surge.
Not technically makeup, but they prepare the skin perfectly for applying your favourite makeup product.
Talking about makeup, I’m in love with Limecrime liquid lipsticks!
Oops, now you know my darkest secrets…
What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty comes in all shapes & sizes!
Which are the colours for this season?
The trends for this season are Metallic colours, peach tones, nontouring (thank you Kim Kardashian), and dark lipsticks… oh, and glitter. Glitter everywhere. Everyone’s in love with Pat McGrath’s glitter lip kits. I also think we’re going to see more lipgloss this season.
What is a no-no for this season?
Heavy contouring. That’s so summer 2016 *eye roll*.
Which is the must have makeup products every woman should have in their makeup bag?
Lip balm, natural blush, a highlighter matching your skin tone, concealer, and mascara.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Books, paintings, and of course, online.
