What are you currently listening to/ reading / watching?

Money Heist! If you haven’t watched it, you need to! I was losing sleep over it. if you’ve watched it you would understand!

Is there an amazing destination that your career in makeup has taken you?

Yes, there is, I’ve been really lucky to travel for my job. I went to San Francisco with Benefit for the launch of the Karla Brow. I also went to Paris with Sephora Collection and I went to Milan for fashion week with Pat McGrath and Sephora. These have been really amazing trips that I keep really close to my heart. They inspire me to keep working really hard! There’s actually vlogs on them on my Youtube Channel.

What are your beauty or skin product must-haves?

One that is an absolute must-have is an Etoile Ring Light, honestly, I would not film or take any makeup photos without my Ring Light.

I actually don’t know what we did before them, but this one in particular just diffuses the light so softly and blurs the skin a little as well, it’s not harsh on the face

What is one product that you can’t work without?

There are a couple I can't work without, but i have to say when I'm doing makeup, I have about 20 small little fluffy blending brushes. I think I could do a face with it, that’s how much I love them. Maybe I’ll challenge myself to do a full face with one.

What moment in your career are you most proud of?

I’ve had a couple, but I would probably say standing backstage at the Versace show was really amazing with Pat McGrath. Also, when the Karla Brow launched nationwide. That was really exciting for me, I cried!

Is there someone who inspires you?

I have a few inspirations, but I would probably say that number one on the list is Sofia Loren

Did you always know that you wanted to be a makeup artist? If not, was there a pivotal moment that helped you realise this?

No, I didn't always want to be a makeup artist. I was actually studying criminal justice and psychology and did a makeup artist course on the side because i had no idea how to do makeup! One thing led to another, and here I am!

What is your favourite thing to do in your down-time?

I’m going to say baking or cooking. I find it really therapeutic to be in the kitchen, I love that
