About Yonna




Inilah Yonna Kairupan. Ibu dari 4 orang anak ini memang sudah tertarik dengan dunia makeup sejak balita. Terkadang dengan nekadnya pergi main ke taman dimana anak-anak kecil lainnya bermain, komplit dengan sapuan makeup di wajahnya. Pernah mengalami kelopak mata bengkak karena keukeuh menggunakan penjepit bulu mata.

Meet Yonna Kairupan. This mother of four kids has been falling in love with makeup since toddler. Sometimes she went to the park where many other kids playing around, with full makeup on her face. And she got swollen eyelid just because she insisted to use eyelash curler. 

Semasa SMA kesenangannya akan makeup tersalurkan. Sebagai salah satu 'pentolan' dan koreografer tim seni tari SMAN 70, Yonna jadi semakin sering mempraktekkan kegiatan tata riasnya karena saking seringnya tim seni tarinya manggung di berbagai tempat.

She channeled her passion in Makeup during high school. As the front-girl and choreographer of SMAN 70 dancing team, she practiced her makeup skill so many many times since her dancing team performed a lot.

Kuliah adalah masa yang ditunggu-ditunggunya karena berarti ia dapat menggunakan makeup di wajahnya setiap hari. Dan profesinya sebagai seorang penyanyi semasa kuliah membuat kemampuannya dalam hal makeup semakin menjadi.

College was the period she had been waiting for because that meant she could wear makeup every day. And her profession as a singer really really made her makeup skill went up high.

Iya. Ibu ini tidak pernah mengikuti kursus atau pelatihan khusus mengenai makeup. Keahlian jari jemarinya menjadi semakin sering beraksi pada wajah teman-temannya. Kadang dibayar. Kadang gratis. Bukan hanya itu. Yonna juga menularkan berbagai macam tips dan trik makeup kepada teman-temannya. Menularkan semangat bahwa seulas dua ulas maskara tidak akan menyakitkan seorang wanita.

Yes. She never took special course or special training for makeup. Her fingers played around on her many friends' faces. Got paid sometimes. And sometimes for free. Not only that. Yonna also gave so many tips and tricks about makeup to her surroundings. Transmitting the thought that one or two layers of mascara won't hurt a pretty woman at all.

Dunia makeup sempat ditinggalkan total ketika Yonna melakukan penyesuaian spiritual dalam hidupnya. Beberapa tahun kemudian, ketika Yonna bergabung dalam sebuah perusahaan kecantikan yang berasal dari Swedia, disitulah passionnya terhadap makeup meledak lagi.

She abandoned her makeup skill when she had to make spiritual adjustments in her life. Few years later, when she joined Sweden cosmetic company, then her passion in makeup burst out.

Yonna pun mengembangkan skillnya lebih lebar lagi. Bukan hanya makeup cantik yang dikuasainya, makeup karakter/special effect pun akhirnya dirambahnya juga. Masih sama, belajar sendiri. Skill ini pun sangat amat tersalurkan ketika suami tercintanya, Eric Kairupan, founder dari KompiZombie (Komunitas Penggemar Film Zombie) dan juga spokesperson IZoC (Indonesian Zombie Club) memintanya untuk mengkoordinir divisi makeup di kedua komunitas tersebut.

She developed her skill wider. Not only beauty makeup, she also penetrated into Character/Special Effect makeup. Still the same, she learned it by herself. With the big support from her loving husband, Eric Kairupan, founder of KompiZombie (Komunitas Penggemar Film Zombie) and also the spokesperson of IZoC (Indonesian Zombie Club), she became the coordinator of makeup division in the communities.

Dari sinilah Yonna banyak mempraktekkan kemampuan makeup karakternya. Semua stasiun TV besar di Indonesia sudah pernah menggunakan jasanya. Dan semua klien selalu puas dengan hasil tangan dinginnya.

From there she did all of her ability in special effect makeup in so many places, so many clients. All big Indonesian TV stations has used her services. And all the clients are happily satisfied with her magic fingers.

Wanita multi-talenta ini berkeinginan untuk mencetak banyak Makeup Artis Karakter muda di komunitasnya. "Anak-anak muda Indonesia harus skillful supaya hidup mereka memiliki pengalaman yang berarti dalam hidupnya" ucapnya. Kemampuannya dalam mengajar memiliki keunikan tersendiri sehingga membuat mereka yang mengikuti kelasnya jadi mampu memiliki karakter masing-masing dalam makeup.

This multi-talented woman desires to create so many young Special Effect Makeup Artist in her communities. "Young Indonesian should be skillful so that they could have the meaningful experiences in life" she said. Her teaching skill really has its own uniqueness so that the participants could have their own character in makeup.
