The motto of Val Laskarides is to Beautify Naturally and Organically.
I was born in Ukraine and I studied a Bachelor of International Relations in Odessa, my home city in Ukraine. After completing this Undergraduate, I decided this was not the path I wanted to take. I instead chose to follow my life-long dream and passion of running my own make-up and hairstyle business. I always wanted to apply my creativity for the benefit of others, whether they be clients wishing to impress at a wedding, business conference, or other special event; or whether they be clients in the fashion, media, or film industries wanting to put together the perfect photoshoot or production. I qualified as a Fashion Make-Up Artist at Make-Up Designory (MUD) in New York. This provided the perfect foundation to apply what I had learnt in a broad range of work contexts, and also to test the boundaries when required in situations such as Avant-Garde. I really live my motto when working with every client: to Beautify Naturally and Organically. This is demonstrated in my interest to study Cosmetology at Aveda in New York.
