Nickname: Bon, BonBon, Bonza, B Dawg
Current mood: Happy….. It’s Friday!!!
How did you start your career: I studied to be a make-up artist here in Sydney, then headed overseas to work as soon as I finished. I worked in Asia and the UK as a make-up artist for Elizabeth Arden before I moved into film and fashion while living in London.
Favourite part of your job: Having creative freedom, and meeting new and interesting people all the time. By having ww.ozbeautyexpert.com and working in fashion as a make-up artist I get to work across a really broad area of the beauty world.
Best kept beauty secret: Exfoliate! honestly it’s the only thing that will keep your face any body really glowing. Do it properly at least once a week.
3 Things you can’t live without: lip balm, my hair straightener and fake tan.
Favourite holiday destination: New York, but currently needing a tropical island getaway really badly….. Winter sucks!
Currently listening to: Amy Winehouse
Whats next for you: I’m off to New York for fashion week soon, I’ll be shooting for Oz Beauty Expert and heading to some really great shows. Exciting!
Favourite pureTAN product: Can I have 2? I love the coconut body creme for nourishing my skin, and the Rapid Tan for my quick tanning fix.
