Read our interview below;
When did you start doing makeup professionally?
-I started doing makeup professionally in 2004.
Where does your interest in makeup stem from?
-I have done many drawings since my childhood and that's what brought me to makeup.
Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career.
-The project that I consider most gratifying is when I was interviewed for the book "Luxury Lips" that was published in 2009. I featured in the book among some great makeup artists.
Who is your role model and why?
-Pat Mcgrath is one of my role models; she inspires me with her career. Mcgrath built her career alone - she began as a receptionist, whilst continuing her passion for makeup on the side. She never gave up!
What’s the one thing you wish more people knew about makeup?
-I want people to know where to place the illuminator (Touche Eclat YSL) on the face to look less tired and brighter.
What’s your favourite quote?
-"Less is more".
What would you say is the biggest challenge an MUA has to face?
-My biggest challenge is being a perfectionist because it pushes me to always do better.
You’re stuck on a desert island and you can only take three things with you. What are they and why?
-A mirror to see how old I am. Warm clothing in case of weather...(Storm) and books to keep my brain working.
Explain the look you have created today on Jess.
-Glamorous, elegant and a bit sexy. The last look was very nude, baby doll.
What is your favourite cocktail?
-Sex on the beach.
What are the best looks/trends for AW17?
-My favourite look for AW17 is the black trench coat with a black leather beret and black boots.
Your favourite holy grail piece of makeup?
-"La Touche Eclat " by Yves Saint Laurent. All women should have one in their handbag.
What’s your best advice for makeup prep?
-To properly moisturize your skin for comfort, a better hold and added brightness.
Lip stains vs lip glosses?
-I prefer the gloss because it's more glamorous, sensual, sexy and it gives your lips a luscious finish.
What’s your ideal Friday night?
-Drinking glasses of wine with my friends.
Favourite place to eat in London?
-The House of HO is my favourite restaurant in London.
What are your top 3 favourite makeup brands?
