This is what my customers say:

(I translated these myself from German to English)

“Maike did my makeup for my wedding and my hair and I am so happy, that I decided to book her! I have very oily skin and makeup does not last very well, but Maike researched and tried new products until she found a solution and on my wedding day, my makeup lasted a really long time! I am thrilled that she catered to my skin like this and I was very satisfied with the result! Also, she is really friendly, so you get the feeling that a good friend is doing your makeup!

It was also very important to me, that she uses high quality and cruelty-free products. All in all, I only had positive experiences with her and I can safely recommend her to anyone :)”

“Already during the consultation (for my wedding) I felt very well advised, since Maike took a lot of time and really catered to my specific wishes. The finished result convinced me entirely and so the anticipation for my wedding was great. On the wedding day itself, the makeup process was very nice again and the result was beautiful, just like at the consultation. Maike works professionally and very hygienically (disposables, mask, etc.) – you can only fell comfortable with her!”

Maike Make up Artist Vision and Mission

About Me

Who is Maike Make up Artist Wien?

My name is Maike Kolmer and I am a certified Makeup Artist in Vienna.

I first became interested in makeup out of necessity, not pleasure. For ten years I suffered from terrible cystic acne and using makeup was the only way for me to restore my self-confidence. I researched, experimented and perfected until I found an acceptable solution for myself. What started as means for the purpose was only the beginning of an excited and creative journey.

I decided that I wanted others to experience this feeling that makeup gave me. So I successfully completed a course at Austria’s Make Up School to become a Special Make up Artist.

I made this decision a little later in life. Before becoming a full time makeup artist, I worked as a Chef and studied Chemistry at the University of Vienna.

I grew up all over the world in English speaking schools, so I am fluent in both German and English (or one could argue I can speak neither very well).

10 Facts about me:

I’ve been living in Vienna for 10 years.

I live here with my husband and our two cats.

I have lived in 7 different countries.

I am extremely punctual.

People say that I have a calming charisma.

I am very tidy.

It is easy for me, to empathize with others.

I love nature, especially in winter.

Franz Kafka is my favorite author.

I still love cooking and eating. Maybe eating a little more than cooking.


I have specialized in beauty makeup of all kinds. Weddings, events, portraits, commercials, business, editorial and fashion.
