THE 16-year-old daughter of make-up maestro Napoleon Perdis is like any other teenager, except she splits her time between Athens and Sydney, has her own make-up line and recently signed with modelling agency Chic Model Management. When she’s in the southern hemisphere, the bilingual teen, an older sister to 14-year-old triplets, Athina, Angelene and Alexia, lives with her father, Napoleon, and mother, Soula-Marie, in Sydney’s glamorous Double Bay.
Her father’s eponymous brand has revenue topping $100 million worldwide, and Perdis, who has 13,000 followers on Instagram, says she is learning the cosmetics industry from the bottom up. She’s interned during school holidays and visited manufacturing and product-development sites across the globe. She launched her first make-up line, Total Bae (inspired by social media and aimed at millennials), in April.
