We quiz her on this seasons must have party looks and a few of her favourite things.

I could never live without mascara – this is my favourite thing that changes a face more than anything.

I get my beauty inspiration from the international runways, fashion magazines like Paris Vogue and the world’s top makeup artists like Pat McGrath and Val Garland.

The soundtrack to my life would be… a crazy playlist of genres! I love so many different things in life and so many different kinds of people that no one soundtrack would fit them all.

My most memorable makeup moment of 2018 is… The Makeup Artist Guild Asia Pacific Awards. It was so incredible and I was given six makeup awards that night!

On my Christmas wishlist is… I always joke that what I’d really like is $30million in my bank account and an amazing apartment in Paris with parquetry floors and full of amazing art and antiques and a huge wardrobe of gowns. Can that be on my Christmas list?

My hit makeup predictions for next year are glossy lips are back! Neon colours on eyes and lips along with galactic inspired sparkles.

My go to look this party season will be polished skin and lashes. I keep my makeup pretty simple, but for my clients anything goes. Party makeup can be super fun!
