Uslu was born in Söke/Türkiye and raised in Germany.
She started her makeup career in Madrid and soon moved to New York, where she instantly became a protege of Francois Nars, working with top photographers, stylists and designers.
Uslu moved on from Nars to pursue her own career quickly making a name for herself. She worked for high end international publications like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Arena, Dazed, i-D, The Face, The New York Times amongst many others.
Uslu recently returned to New York after taking time off in Berlin to raise a family and develop her own unprecedented supersonic airbrush technology makeup brand, currently only available at the avant-garde shop, Colette in Paris.
Uslu’s unique creativity, forward thinking and strong sense of color attract many world renowned brands who frequently ask her to collaborate on large fashion and beauty productions, including Colette, Coach, Taschen, Nike, Reebok, Tumi, Coca Cola, Vans and Bernard Willhelm to name a few.
Uslu’s sense of discretion and confidentiality does not allow her to name personal clients – a celebrity A-list that’s rather impressive.
Uslu now splits her time between New York City and Berlin.
