Where did you study?
I studied my Certificate 3 in Retail Skincare and Makeup in 2006 at DoMakeup Academy (no longer active) and worked freelance for many years focusing on stage and performance makeup. I left the industry for a few years until I discovered YouTube makeup tutorials in 2014 and decided I wanted to get back in the game. I then completed my Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2016 and worked at Endota Spa until September 2018. I completed my Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2019 through the Australian Institute of Fitness and can now proudly offer clients the option to use their private health cover to have rebates applied to their remedial massage treatments.
