“I was working on a show for Suria. The talent was supposed to be acting as mechanics so I had to make them look all dirty and oil-greased. I had nothing of that sort in my makeup bag so I quickly grabbed mascara and argan oil (which I normally use for chapped lips) and just mixed them up. The result? Success! It still makes me laugh whenever I think about it because I got all panicky and wanted to cry!
In any field, working toward success means encountering struggles. For me, I have had hate comments directed against me by those who saw me as “competition”. I chose not to retaliate because if I did, I would be just as bad. To this day, I’m happy I didn’t do that because in the end I gained more love from others and people saw me as being patient.
Take every piece of feedback with an open heart, though: for each piece of good feedback, say thank you and remember to always remain humble. For every bad piece of feedback, take it constructively and also thank the person who gave it to you because if they did not do that, you would not be able to improve.
At the end of the day, to be able to play a part in a couple’s “once-in-a-lifetime” special day or to witness performers in a dance act and to know that I am behind their makeup looks creates feelings that are just beyond words! It’s such a fulfilling experience each time!”
