Here she tells us what she’s been doing since leaving AUB.

What is the most exciting aspect of your make-up career thus far?

The most exciting aspect of my career as a Make-up Artist is once I’ve done the make-up and the wigs are on, I get to go and sit down in the theatre and watch how my work comes alive with the actors and singers. One thing I love is when there are quick changes during a performance. I am backstage waiting to do a make-up or hair change in a matter of seconds. It gives me an indescribable rush of adrenaline.
