1. WHEN DID YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH MAKEUP START?

Since I can remember, maybe 12 years old, maybe even younger. I was always quite eccentric, loved playing with makeup, would look at magazines and admire the models who were all glammed up.

2. WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR START IN THE INDUSTRY AND HOW DID YOU LEARN THE ART?

I always experimented with friends and family, and then had this amazing opportunity to work on a fashion show and get eight models ready with a very basic kit that I managed to put together in time. But doing a one-year diploma in Hair and Makeup Fashion styling at one of the Top Universities in the world; The London College of Fashion is what gave me the break.

3. BRIDAL MAKE-UP HAS GONE A PARADIGM SHIFT; FROM OVER THE TOP TO THE, NO MAKEUP LOOKS… YOUR THOUGHTS?

I was always into the natural looks. Editorial or Fashion always meant natural beauty, at times colorful, yes, but the skin would have to look like skin. Until today, I have never steered away from that. Enhancing one's natural features is my forte.
