Guest: Amanda O’Leary (Rock Solid Panda Crew )

Brief Biography

After 20 years of doing makeup on many different shows, I fortunately came to work on Shadowhunters. 2.5 years and 42 episodes of painting Isabelle’s signature red lips and Magnus’s black liner. Maryse’s beautiful skin, or Valentine’s circle rune, Aldertree’s charming smile and let’s not forget the always handsome Alec Lightwood. Shadowhunters has become so much more than a show to me, so many fun memories, long lasting friendships, we created a family. I would have stayed in the Institute forever if we could.
