Ibiza Make up - about Smack Ibiza
Based in the beautiful Mediterranean paradise of Ibiza, Ibiza Make up by Smack Ibiza is the island’s number one brand for make-up, hair and beauty. A fully mobile service, launched in 2009 by professional make-up artists Corina Smith and Sara Muhammad, Ibiza Make up caters to fashion shows and editorial productions, advertising campaigns, television and music videos, musicians, live performers, celebrities, private clients, brides and bridal parties alike.
The brand’s founders boast strong creative backgrounds in the London fashion industry, in addition to long-term ties to the island they now call home. After recognising the need for a high quality, professional make-up and hair service run with a personal touch in Ibiza, the duo relocated to the island and quickly established Smack Ibiza as the go-to-brand for on-island beauty.
Pioneering the use of airbrush foundation and silicon-based, waterproof products on the island, Corina and Sara designed and developed their own style of modern make-up application, suitable for the climate and culture of Ibiza. Using modern and distressed hair styling techniques that are also suited to the island’s humidity and heat means Smack Ibiza are always one step ahead of traditional stylists.
Their discreet and personal service, experience with clients from all over the globe and firm grasp on current trends and techniques earned Smack Ibiza their reputation as the obvious choice when booking hair and make-up services in Ibiza. Today, due to popular demand, the extended Smack Ibiza team split their time between the UK and Ibiza, with an international client list that reads like the who’s who of fashion and style.
Ibiza Make up - In our kits
Ibiza Make up - The signature flawless finish of a Smack Ibiza look pays testament not only to the skills and experience of the team, but also to the high quality of skincare, make-up and haircare products used. Tried, tested and trusted brands such as M.A.C, Toni & Guy, Label M and REN Clean Skincare are found in each artist’s kit, ensuring consistent, quality results.The Smack Ibiza philosophy is that make-up starts with the skin. Skin should first be cleansed, prepped and ready for the products that are about to be applied, and elements such as Ibiza’s heat and light also need to be taken into consideration. Smack Ibiza choose REN Clean Skincare for this valuable preparation process – a natural-based range suitable for most skin types (from sensitive to oily and problem-prone) that is completely free from harmful glycols, petrochemicals, PEGS and other synthetic ingredients and sunscreens.
For the main event, Smack Ibiza offers clients a unique airbrushing service using M.A.C Micronized Airbrushing Formula, which has a silicon, waterproof base perfect to withstand the extreme conditions of a hot, humid environment such as Ibiza, remaining smudge-proof all day and night. In addition to creating picture perfect, flawless skin, this airbrushing technique can also be used to create bespoke face and body art. Tresses are taken care of with a selection of professional brands including L’Oreal, Label M, Schwarzkopf and Redken, all designed to protect precious locks while holding them in place. Smack Ibiza stylists know how to tame manes, working with the island’s humidity and heat while protecting the hair from over exposure to the sun, creating on-trend styles to suit all job categories.
