She said: “I’d seen loads of other fantastic make-up artists on Instagram and I wanted to do something similar and on a bigger scale so I started doing about one a week.

“I use theatrical make-up normally but I occasionally use lipstick if I need to get the exact shade of something.

“I find a picture and then just hold it up to the mirror as a guide and draw straight onto my face – it’s easier than you think!

“Ironically, drawing onto someone else is more difficult – I think it’s more straightforward drawing onto my own face.

“People always say it makes them really happy and it’s nice to bring a bit of joy”
