She is so creative, talented and blessed with an eye of what looks good on every individual. Gitta is an artist in every sense of the word. She does so much more than apply makeup- she sees the true beauty in every individual and strategically brings it out using her raw talent and professionalism. Additionally, she has conducted and styled countless photo-shoots in the past, in which she recreates theatrical and inspired looks on her subjects. She then documents and promotes her work on her social media outlets.

Her deep love for the arts and makeup grew from when she was just in grade school in New Jersey. Right from the moment she started, Gitta was extremely ingenious and experimental with her mediums: from face paint to rhinestones to wacky false lashes. She honed her skills of makeup by practicing on all of her friends and family over the years until eventually her talents were in high demand and she became a full-time professional makeup artist for every bride and every photo shoot in her community. Whether it’s basic bridal makeup, a high-fashioned look, or a theatrical style, she masters whatever form of character that she chooses. Her unique approach to makeup is a pleasure to look at or watch being applied and this is due to the fact that Gitta’s work is usually constructed by an impressive abundance of layers, depth and attention to detail for any face that she touches. It’s almost poetic to see just how many products and techniques she uses to bring the beauty out in each feature of every face that she designs.

The contemporary art world is vibrant and booming like never before and it’s a twenty-first-century phenomenon, a global industry in its own right. Contemporary artists seek the power to astonish, challenge and surprise: the legend of Gitta Seruya Braha’s artistry achieves all of these things. She showcases artwork in the form of makeup that the public may not ordinarily have access to outside of a large urban environment within a welcoming, creative, and inspirational platform. She is as much a skilled professional as a truly unforgettable and capable human being. Gitta is a true artist not only of makeup but of photography, design, lifestyle and artistic interpretation. As time goes on Gitta will continue to delve deeper into the beautiful world of fashion, entertainment and blogging by utilizing a wide range of mediums and taking an intimate approach to art direction and design. I for one am looking forward to seeing what Gitta does next because mark my words: she is going places!
