MEET MARIELA SARKIMA – OUR NORDIC BEAUTY AMBASSADOR
An advocate of natural beauty and skin luminescence, Mariela Sarkima is one of Finland’s leading beauty experts. She shares her extensive knowledge by giving lectures to beauty professionals and companies as well as contributing to various blogs and magazines.
"I have always loved the way Lumene speaks about external beauty being a part of holistic wellbeing. This is the same message I have been delivering on a daily basis in my work as a make-up artist. Taking care of our skin and using make-up are moments of every-day luxury for us women and they help us let our natural beauty shine through and our internal wellbeing show externally too”, Mariela says.
A globally recognized, Helsinki-based make-up artist, Mariela Sarkima has over 17 years of experience in the global beauty industry. Having done training with the Elemis Academy in London and worked in Barcelona, she returned to her beloved home country of Finland in 2003.
"Lumene has been a really important brand for me right from the beginning of my career. I remember getting my very first salary as a make-up artist and buying all the shades of a hydrating Lumene foundation that all the Finnish make-up artists were using at that time”, Mariela says.
In her free time, Mariela likes to do yoga, travel around the world and live a healthy life. As our new beauty ambassador she will be sharing her best-in-class beauty tricks, behind the scene tips from the Nordic catwalks and the latest trends from all over the world.
“I see some really interesting cosmetics trends at the moment. First of all, skincare products and ingredients are expected to be pure and natural but at the same time really efficient and effective. Secondly, the hectic lifestyle of today challenges our beauty care routines – women want multi-purpose products that are quick and easy to use which is why efficient skincare infused make-up will definitely gain a lot more shelf space in the near future. The biggest trend is still natural freshness – healthy glowing skin seems to be attracting more and more women of all ages”, Mariela states.
