Farzana is a passionate and accomplished veteran of the Beauty and Skincare Industry who, for the first fifteen years of her career, worked as a senior registered nurse at some of the most prestigious hospitals in Hamburg, Germany, where she is from originally. Her initial experiences with complex surgery, focusing on managing the internal wellness of an individual, provided an invaluable foundation for her to then focus on the external wellness of the individual through Beauty and Skincare. Since an individual’s skin is literally their largest organ, Farzana’s background as a senior practitioner of medicine has enabled her to provide clients with a highly effective holistic approach that delivers the best results that are possible.
Farzana came to the U.S. in 2011 with the goal of shifting her focus from medicine to Beauty and Skincare. Since then she completed coursework with distinction at the world renowned Christine Valmy International School as a New York licensed esthetician. Her formal education continued with other related disciplines, including Certification in Phlebotomy from ASA College and recognition as a New York State Certified Phlebotomy Technician (PH1) from MedCA. Additionally, Farzana has also attended Manhattan Community College for general academic coursework.
As a natural progression from skincare, Farzana became an accomplished New York State licensed makeup artist, with clients that include socialites, celebrities and members of the elite modeling community. In one of her assignments, she executed makeup for models participating in International Fashion Designer Adrien Alicia’s Fall collection for Fashion Week 2019. She has also been invited for membership into “The Powder Group,” the most important beauty-related industry association in the country.
