I’m a self-taught Make-up Artist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
I came up with NyNa because of the two cities that represent my two souls: New York and Amsterdam. Because the original name of New York City was New Amsterdam, I just used their initials and came up with this name.
I started off in late 2012 through a good friend of mine who collaborated with the Dutch-based web magazine “Hoop Doop Magazine”. It was an interview for a contemporary Dutch artist called Barbara Wijnveld. At that time my make-up kit was quite limited, but this did not stop me from pursuing my dream. I remember the 1st thing that Barbara told me when she met me was: “Your make-up looks really good! It wasn’t always that way (with other make-up artists)”. That’s when I knew I had the chance to start something real.
Less than a year and a half later, here is what I accomplished:
