BIOGRAPHY
Mari Shten was born and raised in Russia. She grew up in snowy Siberia and eventually moved to Moscow where she began doing makeup. For as long as she can remember, art and performance have been a passion for Mari. Following her dreams, Mari traveled through Europe and to the USA where she experienced beauty in many different cultures, greatly influencing her extraordinary vision for make-up. After graduating from makeup school in Los Angeles, it was New York’s electric and progressive energy that inspired Mari to set routes in the city.

Mari approaches make-up as an artist’s tool to create shapes and balance the face. “I like to create a flawless look that brings out the best features of the face. I love to see the skin of the person, not the make-up. Perfect skin, seamless blending and clean lines are the key elements of my makeup”. Her detail oriented, precise and flawless style of work brought Mari many followers and clients.

Always passionate about developing knowledge and education, Mari has founded the first advanced educational company for beauty professionals in Moscow – the ICON Training Project, where she and other great artists can educate on an international level. Mari was responsible for bringing Joanna Schlip, Roshar and Dani Fonseca to Russia and Ukraine in 2012.

When Mari is looking for inspiration and creative energy she travels the world and loves to learn about different cultures.
