He recently published a photo with Severina after he did her makeup again for the concert in Skopje. What is private like? How did your collaboration begin and honestly, what is it like to make up the biggest regional star?

– Severina is a story by itself. Witty, charming, full of explosive energy and sex appeal. She is one of the most beautiful and remarkable women I have ever met. Simple, pleasant, a great professional, knows exactly what she wants and knows how to deceive a smile from everyone who is near her. We have been working together for many years, whenever she comes to Macedonia we hang out, and I enjoy her company.

You are still a favorite of the ladies in Macedonia. With Karolina, you are both colleagues and friends. What's it like to be friends with a pop star? How long have you been working together?

- Thank you. I always try to be on trend with the world's fashion developments, which is probably why I have survived for more than two decades. We have a special friendship with Karolina, which has lasted maybe 20 years. Honesty, professionalism and mutual respect allow us to cooperate when we have professional engagements, but also to make friends and be a support to each other in our free time for many years. Karolina is the biggest Macedonian star with a beautiful voice and a carefully nurtured soul. A great professional, but she's also a lot of fun, a quality I love about her.

Proms, semi-proms, weddings are in full swing... Is there already a full makeup list?

– It's nice that the younger ones are well organized, make appointments on time, know what they want and are wonderful. I get inspiration from them, they respect me a lot, and I adore them, respect them and fulfill all their makeup wishes. I enjoy working with them.

What are the new makeup trends, what colors are prevailing now?

- Literally everything is in fashion. From strongly accentuated eyes combined with delicate lips, monochromatic look, red lipstick, gray and brown tones to a neutral and natural look. The most fashionable is well-groomed hair and skin.

What do you advise ladies the most when it comes to makeup? What should they pay the most attention to in order to look neat?

– I usually like to educate them about skin and hair care and healthy habits before it's makeup time. Also, my advice is that they should always look like themselves and not disguise themselves with too much dramatic make-up. Simplicity is always refined and separate from chaos.

Do Macedonian women have a sense of beautiful and natural appearance and how much, in your opinion, do women take care to look beautiful and well-groomed?

- They also have the how. I am happy that Macedonian women understand fashion and cosmetics and do not overdo it, but use it subtly and in moderation in everyday life, as well as at formal events.

New trends call for drawn eyebrows, permanent makeup... what's your story about all this?

- I have been dealing with permanent make-up on eyebrows, mouth and eyes for eight years and my clients are very happy that after doing it, they don't have to put on make-up every day, but when they wake up, they are ready for work, without wasting time for makeup. I emphasize that permanent make-up must be expertly performed and look natural. They must not be tattooed, but beautified and refreshed without being too noticeable.

There is no woman who has not had her makeup done at Dadar, from celebrities, politicians, to people who are not part of public life... What is the reason for this success and what are the next challenges?

– I think people can rely and always count on me. Of course, there is the professionalism, the quality that I cultivate and of course my calm energy, which they say is my superpower. Next up is the makeup academy which both myself and the new professional makeup artists are looking forward to.

I know you love to travel. You recently returned from Istanbul, what attracts you the most there?

– When I don't have much time, I go to Istanbul, it's a city full of old charm, and I like places that are positive, full of history and of course, the sea gives me some beautiful energy that we all need.
