Has anyone read this book by Thom Whilton and Lisa Teh? I picked it up at the airport on my travels to Sydney for a skincare making workshop yesterday. I started reading it on the plane and finished it on my flight home.
The book features Aussie entrepreneurs who’ve founded globally stocked brands like Go-To (Zoe Foster Blake – my absolute fan girl crush and inspiration), Lanolips (Kirsten Carriol), and Napoleon Perdis (by Napoleon Perdis).
The book illustrates the core of Australian beauty, from the perspective of trustworthy insiders of the beauty industry. It’s really easy to read and includes the opinions of Aussie models, beauty bloggers, make up artists, and Australian Skin Expert for CHANEL – Melanie Grant.
General consensus: Us Aussies are known for our effortless yet glowing from within make up trends. We are obsessed with keeping up with brand releases and watching our favourite beauty bloggers on YouTube play with all things beauty. But ultimately we most love our natural make up looks. Cake face is long gone! We have a sense of sisterhood, each respecting the others’ place in the industry. Whether you’re a brand owner, make up artist, beauty blogger, or consumer; there’s room for everyone to share the same passion of self confidence and women empowerment!
If you haven’t seen my most recent blog post – “Four items that will make you feel like the ultimate BOSS BABE”, I talk about lipstick being one of my top four items to make me feel confident. Well, my girl crush Zoe Foster Blake agrees 😍 Zoe says “There’s so much power that comes from a woman choosing to put on lipstick so she feels good about herself when she leaves the house.”
I’m grateful to have come across this gem at this point of my newly launched blog. Everyone featured in this book has a unique and encouraging story to tell; and after reading cover to cover in one day I can truly say I’m feeling more motivated than ever 💕💫
