About the Instructor

Lead Makeup Artist & Educator

Helen Andersson, Lead Makeup Artist and Educator at FACE Stockholm, has over 20 years of experience working as a professional makeup artist. Born and raised in Sweden, she received her training in makeup working as an apprentice to some of the leading makeup artists in Europe in addition to working for names like Vidal Sassoon and Yves Saint-Laurent.

Her career quickly took off and she became well known throughout Sweden before the age of 20. After Helen came to New York her work took her around the world, collaborating with some of the best fashion stylists, photographers and editors, as well as corporate clients like Calvin Klein, Diesel, Oil of Olay, L’Oréal and celebrities like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Halle Berry, Heidi Klum, Seal, Martha Stewart and Isabella Rossellini.

Consequently, Helen has earned international acclaim for her proficient and diverse work in all aspects of print, film, and media. It is for this reason that each and every one of FACE Stockholm’s makeup artists in the US participates in training with Helen, and each comes away with not only the required skills, but a new and enlightened approach to makeup application. Helen believes that makeup artistry is more than skin deep: a subject’s mood, personality, body and mind must all be taken into consideration. “I look at makeup like sculpting more than like painting,” Helen says, “When I’m thinking about someone’s skin, I think about all of their features, it’s more than just painting on colors.”

Helen’s holistic approach comes in part from growing up in the Swedish countryside, where she learned from her grandfather about the power of natural healing. From that early foundation, she went on to study herbs and natural therapies such as Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of traditional medicine, in both America and India. This knowledge has been essential to her work as a makeup artist and the relationships Helen develops with her clients, whether they are celebrities, retail shop walk-ins, returning customers, or students have made her one of the most in-demand artists in FACE Stockholm’s history.


“Thank you so much for an incredible 3 days of makeup bootcamp. You are an amazing instructor and truly an artist — it was such an honor and pleasure to be taught by you. I look forward to many trips to Rhinebeck in the future to further my education with workshops at FACE and learn from the best!”
“What a wonderful person you are! We learned a lot from you an had a really good time during the bootcamp class. Thanks for sharing your secrets with us.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful workshop. I have learned so much from foundation to color and beyond! I am so excited to practice the techniques we learned for contouring the face,  enhancing the eye with the smokey shadows and natural look.”
“I was so excited to learn from Helen, because meeting her u could just tell she is so talented.  Throughout the five days we had great discussions, we were taught so many great techniques, and she really gave us the stepping stones to become great makeup artists.  I could not have been happier with my experience! I wish it could have been longer! I also have been using all FACE products personally since the class and my skin is glowing!”


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.
