Makeup and hairstyling can be distinguished as a unique and practical art form which combines with the characteristics of fine arts and clothing. Makeup artists modify the color of faces by painting, going further to reshape the face through prosthetics, and the hairstylists utilize different skills to sculpt the hair or make the hair grow opposite from their natural direction. For the theater or film industry, makeup and hairstyling furnish not only the function of beauty but also recreate a historical character or terrifying monster. How to reproduce the traditional hairstyle with a gigantic cage inside the wig? How to create a fantasy monster which no one ever saw before? This unique art form fascinates me, especially in the way of character design. 

 

During my undergraduate studies, I learned makeup at the Makeup Forever Academy in Taiwan and worked on some makeup applications for a few commercial shows. Currently, I am pursuing the MFA degree at the University of North Carolina School of Arts, majoring in wig and makeup design. I was born in Taiwan, receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree from the National Taipei University of the Arts, majoring in costume design. After I graduated, I worked as a makeup artist from 2012 to 2013. I tried to promote my career, so I went to the United States to study. Now, I am not only a full time student, but also a makeup artist and wig stylist
