Editorial makeup artist (and British Vogue contributor) Karina Constantine has made futuristic looks for photographer Nick Knight, turned out gothic dark-lipped beauties for Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø, and cleaned up one Mario Sorrenti under the lens of David Bailey in the pages of British Vogue—but she’s not just a master of transformation. “Russian-born make-up artist Karina Constantine will leave you looking—and feeling—like a better version of you,” says British Vogue Fashion Features Director Sarah Harris. “Her services are regularly called upon by Kate Moss and Natalia Vodianova, and they know a thing or two about being event-ready.”
