In-Focus Student Award Interview with Ginny

Why do you want to be a Professional Makeup artist?
I love making people feel beautiful and confident. Being a makeup artist is the best way to do so. Seeing the smile on a client’s face after I’ve achieved what they’ve envisioned is the best feeling ever!

What is your ultimate Goal/Job?
I would love to work in the wedding industry. Hopefully be travelling to another country to work too.

What/who inspires you?
My inspirations are completely random. It could be a painting, a building a tree – whatever tickles my fancy really!

What is your favourite Product in your makeup kit?
At the moment it’s the NARS sheer glow foundation!

Who is your favourite Makeup artist and why?
Charlotte Tilbury. She started with being a makeup artist working in the field and now she has a huge makeup brand. I love a lot of her products and she is also a very inspirational person.

What has been your greatest achievement so far?
Graduating from my Bachelor Degree in Architecture and changing my career field completely to study makeup, which has been my passion for years.

Where will you be in the next 10 years?
I hopefully have become a successful makeup artist in both Australia and Hong Kong.

One word to describe you.
Easy going
