Derek went from being a homeless teenager, subjected to bullying and abuse, to becoming a Hollywood stylist and media entrepreneur. We met him in Miami at the New You Magazine’s Beauty Awards where he was awarded the Style Icon Award of The Year. After hearing his beautiful, heartfelt speech, a partnership was born. Introducing the Derek…

Eyeliner Demystified

Perhaps no other cosmetic has such a storied past, beginning with Nefertiti and spanning the centuries, the doe-eyed, smokey-eyed, feline-flicked glam Goddesses like Liz Taylor, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe. Then of course came their more contemporary sisters: Twiggy, Diana Ross, Nina Simone, Dita Von Teese, Madonna, Amy Winehouse and Adele. But liner was never just for the girls: Charlie Chaplin, David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Prince, Michael Jackson, Russell Brand, and Pharrell Williams all used liner!…

The Muse for our spring photo shoot is Ilene McDuffie. She literally seems to glow from within! We had so much fun exploring different looks with this talented artist, who brings her all to everything she does. Sounds like she enjoyed it too: ‘The experience was amazing! My favorite part was going through all the visuals like outfits and picking which would correlate with the makeup looks – that was exciting! My favorites were the natural beauty shots in the…

Spotlight on Dr. Sandra Lindsay

As a makeup artist who works on photo shoots, I‘ve had the thrill as well as the frustration that comes with working on top models, academy award winning actors, and luminaries in many fields of expertise. Getting up close and personal with people of all temperaments is literally part of the job description. Forty-something years of experience did not prepare me for the emotions I’d have after working with FACE Stockholm’s National Women’s Day honoree, Dr. Sandra Lindsay.   It began…

Summer Essentials



HELEN  - Lead Educator & Makeup Artist

Helen has been a makeup artist for close to 35 years! Time flies when you are having fun! Her makeup journey started in Sweden where she was born and continued when she moved to New York to pursue her career further. She worked in fashion, the music industry and did commercials and lots of celebrities traveling the world. Later, she put together a makeup school for Face Stockholm and became their Educator/Lead Makeup Artist.

She loves helping clients feel beautiful in their own skin, gently bringing out their best features. Her number one obsession: making skin look fabulous with the right products and tools.

She has lots of tips and tricks up her sleeve! Consultations available in Swedish or English


ROSALIE   Makeup Artist

Rosalie started studying cosmetology at 16. From the moment she learned the fundamentals of makeup artistry she knew that she had found her passion. With a love for painting, she saw makeup artistry as a mix of painting and sculpting: learning how to put the color wheel to use on the skin, as well as enhancing and diminishing using variations of light and dark. She loves teaching simple techniques to cover or enhance a clients problem area or favorite feature and to have them feel confident in the fact that they too can achieve this look on their own.

She loves to show clients that it is not necessary to cover up their gorgeous faces with layers and layers of makeup. That in fact, they can achieve a beautiful, finished look with just 5 products if they wish. But she always encourages their creativity in bolder looks if that is what makes them smile.

Makeup is about shining from within as well as a bit of color or sparkle on the surface for fun.


ROCHELLE   Makeup Artist

Rochelle has been a beauty and skincare fanatic since a young age. Mostly self-taught, she honed her skills at Mason Gross School of the Arts, where she learned classic stage makeup techniques. Understanding how to manipulate age for a specific character and how lighting affects shadow, was critical in developing her ability to trick the eye, create facial volume, contour, a look of happiness, health - almost anything is possible!

She continued her studies, under the instruction of Lead Educator at FACE Stockholm,Helen Andersson, over a decade ago. Her continued work in film, television and stage keeps her up to date on current trends and techniques. Her favorite look is natural, dewy and glowing - never overdone.

Her favorite thing is to teach how easy and simple it can be to achieve the look you want. Basic technique, the right tools and a little patience is all it takes.


ANNE  Makeup Artist

Anne has a background in fine art and a BFA from Alfred University. A lifelong goal to work in anything creative has naturally led her to makeup. She started her training with Makeup Forever and continued her education with FACEStockholm's Lead Educator and Makeup Artist Helen Andersson.

Some of Anne's strengths include color matching, false eyelash application and eyebrow penciling/painting from scratch. Anne is passionate about her own artwork and loves to oil paint. In addition, she contributed her makeup application skills to local film productions.

She loves spending time with friends and family, a good book, a well-made cappuccino and her dog Pepper.
