Elena Shumskaya trained at the National Physical Education University of Ukraine and then embraced a career as high level circus artist, which led her to perform in front of the British Royal Family (Royal Variety Performance) and within the “Cirque d’Hiver Bouglione” (“Bouglione Winter Circus”) between 1998 and 2011. Her professional athlete career path within the Ukraine National team (European Champion and Rhythmic Gymnastics World vice-champion) brought her to be consistently rigorous and dynamic in all of her projects.
Particularly sensitive to art, and especially to photography and beauty, she broadened her curriculum by training in studio digital photography at the “École Supérieure d’Arts Graphiques et d’Architecture de Paris” (Paris Architecture and Graphic Arts School).
In 2012, Elena Shumskaya successfully passed her professional makeup artist diploma at the “Atelier International de Maquillage” (“International Makeup Workshop”) in Paris, which she completed with a studio hairstyling training in 2015.
Her professionalism and her seriousness brought her to work within the cinema, show business, advertising, fashion, events and audiovisual industries.
She collaborated with the TF1 TV channel for the “Qui sera le meilleur sosie ?” (“Who will be the best double ?”) programme, with Disneyland Paris (2013-2014) and with Louis Vuitton as part of an artistic makeup event (2015).
Currently specialised in wedding makeup and hairstyling, Elena offers her personalised beauty enhancing tips to brides, bridesmaids and witnesses, in France and overseas.
