About Me

​As a young girl, I knew that the beauty industry was where I wanted to shine. With over three decades of experience in the beauty therapy and makeup industry, my passion for the craft remains consistent. My true fulfilment lies in uplifting individuals, instilling a sense of confidence, and enhancing their natural beauty.


Throughout my journey, I have had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed artists such as Ira Losco, Sarah Zerafa, Joseph Calleja, Destiny, and numerous celebrities. I have participated in exciting events like fashion shows and served as the head makeup artist for renowned shows such as X Factor, Malta's Got Talent, The Voice Kids Malta, Shark Tank Malta, Joseph Calleja concerts, Malta Film Festivals, theatre productions, TV shows, and various photographic makeup assignments.

 

Additionally, I have had the honour of accompanying several artists in the Eurovision Song Contest, contributing to their stunning appearances on the international stage. This incredible voyage has been immensely rewarding, fuelling my desire to continuously expand my knowledge and expertise. As I embark on a new venture with my makeup academy, I am dedicated to sharing all that I have learned and teaching others to the best of my abilities.

 

My goal is to make a lasting impact in this field that I still love just as passionately as when I first started, enabling me to contribute even more to the beauty industry and inspire future makeup artists.
