Anna Kalita Bio
Growing up in Russia, Anna always had a passion for makeup artistry. As a little girl she would draw makeup onto the pictures of models in fashion magazines to create her own unique looks. As she grew older she took up photography as a hobby, and found herself doing makeup on her friends during impromptu photoshoots. This would be the defining moment for Anna which would inspire her journey into the field of makeup artistry.
After completing her degrees in journalism and mass-media design, Anna began working as a graphic designer. However, her passion for makeup never left her. As soon as she had the opportunity, she delved back into artistry and has never looked back.
Anna was able to work with a mentor in her native Russia who helped guide and inspire her before she took the leap to come work in the States. While still in Russia, she received the Best Fantasy Makeup Award at the Planet of Beauty Trade Show in Moscow. She has now been working professionally as a makeup artist for 8 years, and has achieved a lot in a short period of time. Her work can be seen in magazines, videos, TV projects, photoshoots for several well-known brand names as well as for top modeling agencies.
