Fanny Maurer

Makeup Artist

Fanny is a vibrant woman enjoying her 32 years. Originally from the northeast of France, she has settled in Paris where she is at the beginning of a promising career. She has been gifted with a talent for anything art-related since childhood. Her passion for music naturally led her to work with various rock bands in Europe and in the USA with whom she toured while taking care of their merchandising. It is during that time that she got to discover the art of tattooing, an extremely common practice in that environment. Years later, she became a reference herself within the tattoo community and posed for the cover of several specialized magazines as well as fashion and beauty magazines. Her work as a model gave her the chance to collaborate with talented members of the fashion industry. Thanks to these photographers, hair-stylists, make-up artists and designers, she took a look behind the scenes and observed the way all these artists dedicated their talents to the image. One of the photographers she modeled for was the first to give her the opportunity to take care of the make-up during one of his photo shoots. It was a revelation to Fanny who had found her true calling : she would be a make-up artist. She finally understood that working in front of the camera was just a transition period and that she belonged backstage, at the heart of the artistic team.
