Q. What is your favourite thing about working in the beauty business, and why?
A. The beauty business allows people to look and feel their best. Makeup is a great way to help add self-confidence.
Q. What are your thoughts on airbrushed/photoshopped models in magazines?
A. Like everything, too much isn’t good.
Q. Can you give any tips to aspiring makeup-artists?
A. Practice as much as possible and don’t expect jobs to pay you when you first start out. There’s a lot of hard work to do before the money starts rolling in.
Q. What is the best thing you’ve done in your career so far?
A. Creating a unique and iconic product, my Watercolour fluid blusher.
Q. What is a must-have makeup product(s) for anyone on the go from your collections?
A. My Watercolour fluid blushers.
Q. If you collaborated with another make-up artist, who would it be? Why?
A. There are a few I’d like to work with because they all excel in different styles. I can’t name just one, sorry.
Q. What steps did you take to reach the incredible position you’re in now?
A. As a freelance makeup artist, I stayed committed to the job and worked my socks off. Also, I was nice to as many people as possible and learnt how not to have an opinion. As a brand creator and owner, I re-invented the wheel in terms of creating a new product, my watercolour.
Q. When did you first want to work in make-up?
A. I was about 16 when I knew it was to be my career. It had been a hobby since I was 13 and I was lucky I knew what I wanted to do from early on.
Q. Do you take inspiration from anyone? If so, who?
A. Inspiration comes from tons of stuff I see all around me on a daily basis, such as nature, art and street fashion.
Q. What’s your favourite look this year?
A. I love a perfect complexion with a matte red mouth, defined brows and contoured cheeks. It’s a stunningly beautiful look on any woman and a modern nod to Hollywood.
