Elena Permogorskaya, made her first steps in the world of visage and makeup in 2009, when she got her expert visagiste diploma at SLA academy. At that time the head of SLA academy was Elgė Pališkienė, who in 2013 reorganized SLA academy into Grimo Akademija, where students and teachers work with professional Make Up For Ever cosmetics. In 2012 – 2013 Elena was studying special effects makeup at London’s Delamar Academy. Elena was acknowledged as the best student in her course and became a professional special effects makeup artist. In 2013 she was a finalist in an international special effects makeup contest in Russia with her work “Modern characters of Alexander Rou’s fairy tales”. In 2015 as a teacher at Grimo Akademija Elena was one of two Lithuania’s representatives at Make Up For Ever Cite du Cinema trainings in Paris, where she was one of only few people who got II and III degree qualification in special effects makeup. Constantly working with professional photographs and being the main makeup artist at commercial and movie sets Elena shares her experience with the students of Grimo akademija by upgrading studies’ program with new and unique lessons about makeup and special effects.
