A deaf make up artist

Kellie, 24, a make-up artist for MAC, who lives in Leicester, is profoundly deaf and can hear nothing without hearing aids.
Her younger sister Jodie, 22, is also deaf, though the condition does not run in her family.
'I had a hard time growing up because of my disability,' says Kellie.
'Not only could I not hear, but my speech is affected and it's often difficult for people to understand me.'
This made school frustrating. I learned more slowly than other children because of my hearing problems, and needed extra help all the time, which I hated.
