Professional makeup artist Arber’s skills are so good that he’s turned his name into a brand that’s known all over the world.
His following on social media has grown to become absolutely phenomenal. At the time of writing, Arber boasts a whopping 531k followers on Instagram.#3
I’m a man. That being said, I wish everyone would see that in a loved ones eyes these beautiful women were already seen as the second image. No woman was ever more beautiful than my mother, my sisters, my aunt, my sweetheart.
His fans can’t wait to see the freshest new looks he has to share with everyone. And anyone who wants his services can easily contact him via phone, email, or social media.
The beauty influencer’s following has grown by 800k people since the last time Bored Panda featured his looks.#5
I wish these comments wouldn’t all be comparing how much more/less beautiful they are before/after – this level of make up is an art form and it’s supposed to achieve a look, not make you more beautiful. Just like a dress is symbolic to the day and the husband/wife wouldn’t think she’s any more beautiful with it on, the make up goes with it to complete the look.
During an earlier interview with us, Arber revealed that he’s pretty much always wanted to be a makeup artist, ever since he was a child.
However, he said that his family had been opposed to his dreams. “In our culture, a male in the beauty industry is considered taboo,” he said.#7
“So, at first, I got a master’s degree in economics, and only then did I follow my dream and started working as a makeup artist,” he explained that his journey towards his dreams has been a long one, indeed.
The makeup artist remains as passionate about his craft as ever. The amount of hard work that he puts in is incredible. He works with over a thousand brides each year.#9
“When I meet my client, the first question I ask is what kind of occasion are they getting their makeup done for,” Arber shared with Bored Panda a glimpse into how he works with his clients.
“I also ask my clients if they have any specific requests. For example, if they want a natural or dramatic look,” he said.#11
“Then I ask them [to show me] the dress that they are going to wear. The design of the dress and its details reveal the style of the look the client is going for. Then, I analyze their facial features,” the professional shared how he works, step by step.#13
The pandemic had impacted Arber’s line of work, just like many other makeup artists’. During the lockdowns, they had fewer clients than usual.
However, normally, summer is the busiest season for them. He and his team can work on as many as 60 or more clients per day which is absolutely incredible.#15
These pictures highlight the fact that others barely see our insecurities. I mean the girl on the left is gorgeous (as are the others) and the pics on the right make THEM feel gorgeous. We spend so much time covering things we think look bad when others don’t even notice them. I’m saying this, but whenever someone whips out a camera I hide because I can’t face pictures of myself. I know.32
Arber revealed to Bored Panda that, at the time, his team consisted of 25 people. 15 of them are makeup artists and 10 are hair stylists. That way, he’s able to serve all the clients who want his services.
The pro makeup artist has been working on sharing his skills with more people. “Some of my students are working part-time and some are full-time employees,” he said that he’s trained quite a few industry professionals. Passing on one’s experience to others is the sign of a true master.#17
The artist shared that he technically has enough resources to work with 100 clients each day.
“We start our workdays early in the morning and make sure our schedule has absolutely no impact on the quality of services, satisfying all of their needs,” he said.#19
“In the Balkans, the wedding is one of the biggest events in a person’s life. But due to the pandemic, a lot of them were postponed,” he shared with us earlier how the lockdowns had impacted the wedding industry in the region.#21
It appears that this artist doesn’t think any of these women are beautiful. She completely changes their look. She doesn’t enhance their natural beauty she transforms them all into look alike plastics. She seems to have only one look she can manage. Not to mention she make every one’s completion darker.
Which of these ‘before and after’ pics did you like the most, dear Pandas? What do you think of the professional makeup artist’s skills? Have you ever had your makeup done for a wedding by a pro? Share your thoughts in the comments.#23
