Linda Cantello — the legendary makeup artist discusses the magic in image making, facing fears and career longevity.

Linda Cantello

With Paolo Roversi and David Sims alongside Linda as her frequent collaborators and her work - wide-ranging and breathtaking, the international makeup artist for Armani Beaty is also an amazingly open person who makes you somehow feel at home in her presence. Unless you ask her "to just do what she wants" with makeup...

"Let's go black and white! And feel free not to make your lighting perfect..." whispered to me Linda on our beauty shoot in Moscow to showcase the new collection in Armani Beauty's line that Linda heads as a makeup artist. I asked her to repeat. She confirmed - "not perfect".
And thus started an unexpected warm friendship that leads us to this conversation, recorded at Linda's home outside of Paris. Linda doesn't have instagram, but she has a hashtag there! Go here to see some of her work: #lindacantello.
The hardest thing for me is when somebody says "Do what you want" because, well, I can do anything.

I decided to make all of the content available for free to all of you, my dear freelancers, as you go on this journey of discovery and growth. It does, however, require time and resources. So, if you are finding my work useful and want to support me in creating more of such content — it will be much appreciated by me and (guess what?) — also by the freelancers that are helping me deliver it here. If you're not sure where to start — the price of a coffee, a lunch or a visit to a shrink are some of the benchmarks available to you.
"The circle of life" as one king said in a cartoon.

My sincere thanks for your support! Anton
