Growing up, make-up artist Aryuna Tardis didn’t really look like any of the people around her. Coming from an Asian-Russian background but living in the European side of Russia made her feel like she didn’t fit in. It was through this feeling of isolation, however, that Aryuna learned to see the beauty in differences and led her to want to  celebrate beauty from all perspectives. This belief in self-acceptance and uniqueness, as well as her fascination with outer-space,  guides her approach to make-up today. Always finding new ways to distort her appearance in photos, the model and stylist turned make-up maestro is continually breaking beauty norms – from mismatched contacts and bleached brows to pointed elf ears.  We speak to Aryuna about Amy Winehouse, why she’d enhance her nasal bone and sensing the future.

What’s been your career highlight so far?
So far my biggest career highlight is launching my own product with the Russian cosmetics brand - it’s a really nice moisturising gel.

What are you working on at the moment?
I have another collaboration coming up around temporary tattoos and I’m also about to try a new format for Instagram. It’s a new visual concept, something that brings new ideas of storytelling through my photos. Hope that you’ll see it very soon!

You have to donate a feature of your body to an icon of yours. You get nothing in return. What feature do you give and why?
I’ll give my hands to Scarlett Johansson, cause that’s the one detail missing that stops her from being perfect. If someone would like to give something to me it has to be Amy Winehouse’s voice. Her voice is out of this world, divine.

If you had to choose one surgical enhancement, what would it be and why?
I’ll enhance the nasal bone, to make it look more alien-like because I'm really inspired by the classic alien look.

If you could have a new sense on top of your existing ones, what would it be?
I don’t know if it counts as a sense, but I would like to sense the future. I thought about it already and I would use it to come up with legendary songs before someone else does it.
