What does a day in your life look like?
I love to start my day feeling fresh. First thing I do is I check my Instagram and then from there no mucking around I go straight to hair and makeup. I usually have Spotify playing in the back round to help wake me up ! By day, I am a full time senior stylist at TONI&GUY hair salon and by night I am a full time beauty blogger.
You’re a self-taught make-up artist, what got you into that?
The minute I saw Michelle Phan's makeup tutorial on Youtube I got so obsessed so that led me into start doing my own.
Where do you find your inspiration for each look?
Most of the time its from instagram/Pinterest. Because they are the easiest access to get some new ideas/trends.
Hair colour you love rocking the most?
Right now I've been loving platinum blonde but I think I'm going to change to pastel baby pink !
One thing we’d be surprised to know about you?
Believe it or not, I am actually a really low maintenance girl and I have never learned how to drive.
What’s the most common beauty mistake you see people make?
Touching your face. I am a big believer in keeping your hands away from your face.... leave it be !!
What effect has social media had on your career?
Boosted my confidence and brought me some great opportunities. I think being known for doing what you are so passionate about is the best feeling in the world and it definitely makes me want to work even more hard for it.
Favourite accounts to follow?
Because I change my style a lot I really go through phases. But I currently love sydneyfashionblogger. Her style is amazing
