The Golden Mask for Make-Up Art is regularly awarded to make-up artists by KRYOLAN Berlin and Messe Düsseldorf at BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF, honouring special creativity, technical expertise and dedication to enhancing the professional image of make-up artists. The award ceremony will be held at the Meeting Point in Hall 10 of BEAUTY Düsseldorf on Saturday 10 March 2018, at 15:30 hrs.
Jabe spent his childhood and youth in the French Department of Guadeloupe. When he went to Paris to study art at the age of 16, he fell in love with painting. His own exhibition followed quite soon, in Cologne, at the young age of 18. Back in Paris, he decided to dedicate his life to make-up, and so he trained with Shu Uemura Cosmetics. He has been a freelance make-up artist since 1998, and his works are regularly published in international high-gloss magazines, such as Vogue, L’Officiel Paris, Glamour, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Red Collector, Palace Costes, A Magazine , GQ , Please!, Trucco & Bellezza, So Chic, Jalouse, Wad, Zink, Easy Living, Verve, Bon and Essential Homme.
In his capacity as a make-up artist, he has made major contributions to numerous advertising campaigns, catalogues and fashion shows. His clients include Gucci, Nina Ricci, Kenzo, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Boucheron, Cartier, Lancaster, Lancel, Chloé, Christian Lacroix, Swarovski, Loewe, Azzaro, Ungaro, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jean Claude Jitrois, Silvio Beterelli, Massimo Rebecchi, Cristiano Burani, Brunelli, Darphin and Natura, to name but a few. In 2011 Jabe masterminded the make-up for five episodes in the 16th season of America's Next Top Model.
In 2013 he started a new chapter in his career, working as a Creative Director for various cosmetics firms and magazines. He also founded the international avant-garde magazine OOB as a unique platform for make-up artists.
