Olga Barassi, Hair & Make-up Artist, Birmingham
Updated: Mar 27
I was lucky enough to meet Olga (@barassi_beautique) because she is such a wonderful person. She is reliable, highly professional and very dedicated. I worked with Olga on one project, and I was really amazed by her skills. You can be sure that you won't get anything less than perfection! Olga totally transformed the model's hair and did fantastic make-up.
Olga studied Art & Design and Teaching in Russia where she was teaching for many years. She used to prepare her students for theatrical performances with face painting. That's how she started doing creative make-up as her hobby. Her greatest passions are creativity and fashion. That's why she later decided to fully dedicate herself to the make-up artistry. Olga does everything from fashion and boudoir to avant-garde and body-art. Her work was also featured in several magazines including Bring Me, Dark Beauty Magazine and X-Pressions (Creative Make-up).
I had a chance to do personal branding photography for Olga's business, so we created content for her social media. Firstly, I did some basic portraits of Olga, then I photographed how she works from home, and finally, I captured the way she interacts with her client.

''I had a pleasure to work with Veronica for couple of photoshoots and I can say that she is fantastic! I know many photographers, as I am a makeup artist and for me is very important to work with professional, so I will be able to use pictures for my portfolio and people will like my job.
Veronica is always in time, very enthusiastic and creative. You don't have to ask her when pictures will be edited, as she will send it to you earlier than you will even think about it. She has her own style that I like especially! That is why I have chosen her as a photographer for my own portfolio and was more than happy with the result❤️❤️❤️
I would recommend her to everyone who is looking for a photographer for important event! Looking forward to working with her again!''
When you meet Olga, you can see that she is a true artist inside out. The way she dresses, the way her apartment is designed, the way she does her job, everything just comes together so well. Her style is very elegant and refined. As you can see in the photos, she surrounds herself mostly with red, black and white colours. This includes not only her home, wardrobe and hair colour but also her wedding album, which I find incredible.
I'm really looking forward to working with Olga again in the future. If you are looking for a make-up artist for your wedding or any other event, Olga is definitely one of the best professionals for this!
