What do you love about your job?
The scope for creativity in make-up is unlimited. Whatever I can possibly imagine, I can make it work! Also, the make-up for my customers, models and students differs and I’m the one to find out what suits them most.

Any nice stories to tell about your time in Macau?
I have to say working in The House of Dancing Water. It’s my honor to become the first Asian make-up artist to work with this international creation team, I have gained a lot of experience in these three years!

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
My partner, for sure. We are both workaholics which makes us have very limited time to spend with each other. Even having a simple dinner with him makes me feel so happy.

What is your next adventure?
In 2014 I will start a new company. It will be the first training center in Macau covering all fashion make-up, hair styling, manicures, personal make-up and image styling.

How would your best friend describe you?
An optimistic workaholic.
