My Life as a Writer

I’ve never settled for an ordinary life. Nor was I satisfied with becoming an award-winning makeup artist and becoming the best in my field. Continually stepping out of my comfort zone and taking on new challenges, I launched my freelance makeup artist business at the age of 19.

Designing and marketing my own brand mineral makeup, I built a successful business from scratch. My products took off and soon I started selling my makeup online and at tradeshows. This experience became the basis for my book Big Tips for Small Business: The Key Success Habits and Insights of Starting and Growing a Small Business (in Australia). Unlike most business books, I share the good, the bad and the ugly, the highs and the lows as a small business owner.

“My goal in life is to inspire others and see lives changed for the better.”

Writing as a Lifestyle

Writing a book is one challenge, publishing is quite another as I discovered. But this didn’t stop me – quite the contrary. I figured out a way to write and self-publish my first book and have it appear on bookshelves in popular bookstores around Australia.

Many people asked me how I did it so I put pen to paper once again and wrote How to WRITE Your First Book: A Simple and Effective Guide to Writing Your First Book (from someone who had no confidence in writing) and the sequel, How to SELF-PUBLISH Your First Book: A Simple and Inexpensive Guide to Self-Publishing Your First Book (from someone who took the not-so-easy, sometimes expensive, route).

Writing and Makeup

Beauty can be elusive, but not to me as I discovered through many years of working as a makeup artist the secret to creating that perfect look. I realised I could share my practical knowledge with women around the globe, giving them easy-to-follow practical tips for everyday beauty.

My practical guide is a breath of fresh air in a market that drowns in superficial makeup books without helping women to look beautiful every single day. This book contains my professional makeup tips because I care about how women feel and look.
