    "I was a huge fan of the band Panic! at the Disco," she said. "The guitarist always had these facepaints when they had a concert. I was so inspired by that."

    Spakman said she attended a make-up artist school in Amsterdam from the age of 19.

    "Those three years were the best years of my life, she added. "[I] learned so much there and I also found a passion for styling, making headpieces, styling wigs, and photography. All those things are self-taught."

    She said an extreme make-up session can take two or three hours.

    And 23-year-old claimed she gets "the most awesome reactions" to her work.

    "I love to read comments that people are inspired by my work, those sweet comments can make my day," Spakman said.

    She said she gets inspiration from Tim Burton films, as well as tattoos, different cultures, and illustrations.

    "I think that's most important," she concluded. "Also, I want to keep teaching make-up and pass on everything I know to other people."
