MAGGIE GELUSH began her career as a freelance makeup artist in 2010, after gaining her diploma from Mariart School of Makeup & Hair in Stockholm. She has since worked with many artists and high-profile names such as M.I.A, Shawn Mendes, Zara Larsson, Noah Cyrus, Anna-Karin Karlsson, Gina Dirawi, Shima Niavarani and Marika Carlsson amongst others.
In 2015 she helped to create and develop the Rebecca Stella Makeup line, a new makeup brand, which was launched later that same year. Apart from being head makeup artist, she was both consultant and product developer for the brand for two years.
Through years of experience working within visual media, Maggie has broadened her range of skills beyond her makeup artistry, often assuming the role of both producer and creative director as well. This ability to multi-task on a project, has given her an enormous advantage in her various collaborations.
The variety of her clients has led to a broad portfolio in many areas. From photoshoots, music videos, commercials and red carpet to book covers and film. She has also been head of makeup for concerts with The Royal Swedish Opera, showhosts of Swedish Idol, Swedish Grammys, QX Gala, Kristallen Gala, Melodifestivalen and more.
You can currently spot Maggies work in luxury department stores worldwide in the latest campaign for exclusive eyewear and jewellery designer Anna-Karin Karlsson.
