In this Q&A Max shared his thoughts on all things beauty and BECCA...

Why did you become a makeup-artist? 
I love fashion, I love creating beautiful pictures that inspire and the love for woman and making them feel amazing!

What has been your most memorable shoot and why?
My first shoot for would be the most recent memorable shoot. When you make a decision to follow your own vision can be scary but once you take that first step the rest is history!

What BECCA products can’t you live without?
I could not live without the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, Mineral Bronzing Powder and the Polishing brush #56 for buffing my foundations                        

What is your number one beauty tip?
"Look after your Skin' and "Less is more!'

What is your all-time favourite beauty look?
It's an equal first between a contoured skin and a nude lip and a cat eye! 

What Autumn/Winter beauty trends are you loving right now?
I’m all about cool toned metallic eyes referencing 60's shapes!

Who is your beauty style icon?
Kate Moss is always a favourite of mine, she keeps it simple but is not afraid to take a risk.

What is the most important thing to know about makeup?
Makeup is about enhancing the features you like, that in turn will make the bits you dislike less noticeable. Confidence is the most beautiful feature a woman can possess.
