Marina Sandoval started her career in South America in the early 1990’s. After a couple of years she moved to London and Milan to work for Jo Hansford and the legendary Valentino who discovered that Marina was also talented with makeup.
Marina made her name working with many famous clients, such as Sophia Loren, Elle Macpherson, Demi Moore to name but a few.
During this time she met two of the world’s leading makeup artists; Michelle Bayliss and Diego Dalla Palma, who inspired Marina to go on to study and gain diplomas in makeup artistry at Scuola BCM Milano for fashion studies, and Greasepaint Academy in London for theatrical and television makeup.
Since then, as well as working with her private clients, Marina’s work has ranged from creating nail and makeup looks for leading magazines, to working on advertising creations for YSL, Christian Dior, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. During this time she also worked with leading photographers including Mario Testino and work for the Royal Family.
Today, Marina’s great experience and knowledge has led her to launch a range of makeup and nail services for all to enjoy.
“I have a great passion for makeup and grooming nails to perfection! Every face is unique and I believe with the right products and application, every woman can look naturally radiant. With my makeup I love to capture and reveal a woman’s inner beauty.”
Marina will be in the George Street salon on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Availability at other times and at Four Season’s Hotel salon by request.
