I owe my career to you. I am eternally grateful 🙂
Tor did my make up a couple of years back for our company’s big 25th anniversary celebration. And I loved it. I also worked with him on a few ad projects since then. Truly
one of the best. And certainly one of the nicest.
Tor is Super talented, I don’t think he realises the magnitude of it…making women feel so beautiful is such a gift! Bless you Tor!
A consummate professional, collaborative and easy to work with, and always delivers without fail. Tor is a great asset on any shoot not only because of his excellent taste and meticulous attention to detail, but also because of the bright and positive energy he brings to the group. Seeing Tor’s name on your call sheet means one less thing to worry about on set — the makeup and hair department is going to be rock solid.
Up next- world domination 😉
Tor is one of the most professional hair and make-up artists we’ve worked with. On top of that, he has great people skills. He never backs down under stress. He is grace under pressure personified. Great talent + great attitude, that deadly combination of Tor is what it takes to last in this business
I love wearing my Tor Torre face! Much like him, it’s never overdone. Just your real self, amplified and beautified. Although… I’ve also seen him turn people into zombies or make you look like Marilyn Monroe with his special effects makeup skills . On top of his skills and ARTISTRY, he is also a joy to collaborate with. Always good vibes when he is around!
I’ve never met a more talented make-up artist. We’re speaking global, international levels here, people. Yet in spite of being one of the top professionals in the industry, Tor remains the most grounded and genuine. Most definitely an asset to any production team around.
It’s always a pleasure working with Tor. His make is top notch!
