Where did your journey with beauty begin?
I’ve always been playful and creative. My profile picture on Instagram is a menacing picture of me wearing dull face paint as a toddle
What made you first see it as a career or want to pursue it as a career?
At the beginning of my career, I was studying makeup for film and theatre. I then jumped right into makeup for fashion once I realised that I had no one to answer to, no bosses, no creative barriers. The fashion environment encourages you to think on the spot and come up with ideas with a great team of creatives, and there’s certainly less of a hierarchy compared to film. I felt that fashion allowed more space for experimentation and gave me a platform to lead on creative.
What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is the ultimate form of expression for me. From a young age I have always enjoyed performance-based arts - film, theatre, music performances. Makeup is one of the many elements attached to performance that can act as a way of enhancing characters and stories that people connect to on a deep level.
