Although she's now starring in a reality show about special effects makeup, Libby Rose Goldberg didn't consider makeup a potential career until relatively recently.
"My passion for makeup didn't come right away," she said. Instead, the former Besant Hill School student — and current contestant on the SyFy Channel's "Face Off" reality show — was drawn to theater. "I always saw myself going to Cal Arts," she recalled.
After spending time at school in London, Goldberg found herself in New York City as a costumer designer. "I loved theater, but felt myself drawn to the makeup department," she said.
