“I’ve always been arty and had done bridal makeup before, which people really liked. I’d not done anything as crazy as the work I do now, though,” she added.

“I take my inspiration from everywhere. If a woman is wearing a coat with a funky pattern on it, I think I’ll do that on my face.
I try to find beauty in everything.”
