Maki was born in Belgrade, Serbia (Eastern Europe). From an early age she was drawn to nature. Her grandmother’s focus was on completely natural skin care from her very own garden. This ignited a passion within Maki to learn more. She received her degrees in advanced aesthetics, aromatherapy and cosmetic chemistry in both Europe and the US Indeed, Maki’s passion became skin care, which she mastered and practiced at the world renowned Ole Henriksen Face & Body Spa in Los Angeles, where she has been working her “magic” on some of the most famous faces: Linda Evangelista, Lisa Kudrow, Jessica Alba, Katy Perry and Shakira to name a few.
Pop diva Katy Perry is even quoted in the Los Angeles Times and a Vanity Fair article as calling Maki the gal to see when it comes to skin.
