Finding film and fashion work across India

Olga Kirnos was drawn to make-up artistry after watching a

live body-art painting performance in her native Canada.

“After researching make-up institutes and career options, it was

very clear to me that it was the perfect route to practice my love for

the creative,” she said. “I initially started out as a traditional artist

and also worked as a graphic illustrator. Becoming a professional

make-up artist was a process of evolvement from one field to another.”

Kirnos graduated from Complections International Makeup Academy

in Toronto, and took private classes in airbrush make-up and body art.

Initially she worked on various projects to round out her skills and help

her decide which direction to pursue.

“I really enjoy challenging transformation assignments when a

character has to be created or recreated using prosthetic and hair

appliances , from character design and preparation to the final

application process,” she said. “Placing and layering all the pieces

together, blending them out seamlessly and then applying colors

and texture to bring the character to life is definitely one of my

favorite make-up procedures.”

Nearly two years ago, Kirnos left Canada to work as a make-up

artist in India.

“I work mostly out of New Delhi and Mumbai and though there

are some differences between the overall working environment

of these cities, with New Delhi being more fashion-oriented and

Mumbai being more film-oriented, both are very fast-paced and

dynamic,” she said.

“There are many good work opportunities but you need to keep

a constant finger on the pulse and understand the industry before

starting out. Research and proper marketing are definitely key

factors in getting the right kind of work and exposure.”

Kirnos recently served as a personal make-up artist to the lead actor

in a Bollywood film project. She followed that with a photo shoot

for GQ, then returned to New Delhi to complete a shoot for Maxim.

“I love the versatility and the dynamic lifestyle that working as

an international make-up artist involves,” she said. “For the

past several years, I have been traveling often on international

assignments, working in different environments with casts and

crews from various backgrounds. It has been a rewarding

experience both professionally and personally.”
