I am Pur Thijs, a mother of two teenagers, living in Amsterdam and a make up artist.
Filmmaking has my interest, since I was a teenager and since that I started studing and working as a make-up artist for smaller and bigger international film, TV- and theatre projects.
The challenge of being a make up artist, is completely different from applying make up to people in their private lives. In our private lives we look as pretty as can be, as in film the make up should fit the character and the time represented in the film: a bad guy from 2020 looks different from a bad guy from 1756. This is why I like period related films more than anything. I take the challenge of every film as serious as can be and you can find me in police-dossiers and talking to ambulance drivers to find the proper inspiration for my next project.
