Interview: Make-up Artist Josephine Lindstedt (Sweden)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Well, my name is Josephine Lindstedt, but almost everyone calls me Polly! It's not a valid name I have but I would like it to be! I'm a happy girl who has a really weird sense of humor and laughs at really bad jokes. I'm crazy about cats and have a Ragdoll at home with my fiancé, she is my hairy little child! My favorite director is Tim Burton and I have a not so secret crush on Johnny Depp. And like most artists, I live with an anxiety disorder, but I've learned to manage and live with it.

How long have you been a makeup artist and how did you get started?

I started around 2014 when I was working a lot with Daniel Brace as an unpaid intern who owns a movie maker company, Braceiller Productions. I helped with makeup during filming music videos and other stuff that needed makeup! After my skills improved my friends asked me to do their makeup for parties and stuff, which helped me a lot during my practice period. In 2016 I decided to try and make a living doing what I love, so I registered as a self-employed company owner on January 1st, 2017. Since then I've worked hard to make my name known in the beauty industry!

Where do you get your inspiration from?

It's not a specific thing that inspires me, I can get it from a great movie like Alice in Wonderland or Harry Potter, which is my all time favorite movie series! Or it can come from nature, art, food... well anything! Haha

What are some of your makeup products that you use?

I use a bunch of Isadora's products since they are really good and affordable, same goes for Nyx Cosmetics, awesome products and super affordable! What I use mainly is Morphe Brushes eyeshadow palettes, both on myself and on my clients, and that's because their makeup is very pigmented and blendable. Perfect for a perfect eye makeup! And lashes, can't forget the lashes! I can't live without my falsies to pop my eyes or make a look more dramatic!

Who have you worked for and who would you like to work for in the future?

I've worked for some wonderful people who helped my career a lot and some of the names are Lennarth Sundberg (Photographer), he's always a pleasure to work with and he is a terrific beauty photographer! Joakim Oscarsson (Photographer), a happy fellow with always great ideas and amazing results! It would be cool to be a celebrity makeup artist and get the chance to work for my favorite singers Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato! Or maybe movie makeup is in my future? Who knows?

Any makeup tips you'd like to share with us?

Never be afraid to try new things with makeup, put on that pink eyeshadow, or instead of a classic black wing, why not make it red? Or maybe even Yellow? I LOVE to try different and weird makeup looks to show people you CAN pull of a daring look during business hours.

If you were not a makeup artist, what would be your dream job?

In high school, I wanted to be a model or a photographer so I would probably still be in the beauty community if it weren't for the makeup drawing me in! I am actually an educated photographer and I still use my skills when taking pictures of my work or products for my Instagram.

What are three things every girl needs in her makeup bag?

Well in my bag I have a setting spray for my face, a makeup sponge, and powder to fresh my face up during the day, and I think those are the 3 important things you need in your bag!

What are common mistakes you see women make on their makeup?

Not matching foundation with your skin tone... I know it's hard to match it if you don't get help or your fave brand doesn't have your exact shade. But you can always mix 2 different shades to match your own skin tone, or you can try and correct it with powder!

What do you think of the magazine?

I think it's a fun magazine that gives great talents a chance to be seen! Never stop giving people chances!
