Chiara is a passionate and poetic young woman. She has a clear vision of her profession. Her sensitivity and audacious creativity allows her to absorb a territory, to define its values and to reinterpret colours, textures and gestures. Doted with a strong inclination for precision and detail, an innate sense of nuance and soundness, she proposes moreover in-depth creative brainstorming in perfect harmony with the spirit of the brand.
As of 1996, it is an atypical and original course of life that paved her way to the art of make-up. Italian by birth, she expatriates to England for five years before turning to France where she finally settled down in 1986. She successfully obtains diplomas in English and international marketing (Westminster College and Polytechnic of Central London from 81 to 85). Already working in marketing she went back to a make-up school (Christian Chauveaux School in Paris in 88) and finally in interior decorating and architecture (The Regent Academy of Fine Arts of London in 92, followed by the Union des Art Decoratifs du Louvre and Ecole Boulle in Paris in 92 and 93).
She started working in London with SRA, a marketing company, followed by C.O.P.S. a financial marketing firm in Paris but quickly moved on to the artistic field as of 1990. She worked with make-up artists such as Thibault Vabre, Terry de Gunzburg, Tom Pecheux and soon became a freelance make- up artist for beauty and fashion magazines and advertising.
When the need to create and work on products and colours started itching, she collaborated as a consultant starting 1996, as Artistic Director of Make-up for L’Occitane and Nina Ricci until 2000, then with Nelly Rody for Trends and by Terry for VIP clientele and autumn look 2001. In 2001, Nina Ricci called again on her talent to conceive and entirely develop their new make-up line and seasonal looks.
In 2003 and 2004, she collaborated with the young fashion designer Ralph Kemp and created a make-up collection sold in the Ralph Kemp boutiques in Paris. Another aspect of her work and creative imagination is illustrated by the elaboration of specific eye make up products and media communication tools developed in 2003 for Cibavision, a Swiss optical and lens company.
In 2004, 2005 and 2006, an international Russian cosmetic company asks her to work on new make up lines distributed in Russia and Eastern Europe. Lately, she is also collaborating with international product development laboratories – Gamma Croma and VH Cosmétiques - on product creation and packaging concepts.
She lends her know-how and intuitive sense for beauty to advertising visuals and films, as well as beauty editorial visuals in women’s magazines. And, last but not least, indulges in a few privileged VIP and personal clients that request her talent.
