She conquered not only the audience, but the jury. This was the first time when the jury and the audience revealed such unanimity. Julia Melnik is an actress. She became enthusiastic about prosthetic making-up several years ago and studied it through YouTube and different forums.
Julia took leading positions during all the three stages of the contest. She reached the final stage along with other five participants.
