What is the one beauty product you cannot live without?

Makeup remover! It’s so important to remove your makeup before going to sleep. While we are sleeping the skin regenerates, heals and naturally replenishes so it’s important to keep it makeup free. Bioderma’s Sensibio H20 Micellar Water is the most efficient makeup solvent, and we use it in every single facial treatment in my salon.

Skincare routine?

In the mornings, I wash my face in the shower with Nuxe Comforting Cleansing Milk. I then apply Ultra MD Brightening serum followed by a couple drops of Shemana face oil and Ultra MD Bio Repair Moisturiser. On my make-up free days, I’ll apply Bioderma Photoderm BB Cream with SPF 50+.

At night, I double cleanse my skin using firm, thorough massage movements. The first removes oil, dirt and make-up so I like to use an oil or cream cleanser to emulsify and remove all of the surface build up on my skin. The second cleanse actually cleans my skin and pores so I usually follow with a gel or foam cleanser to deeply cleanse and purify my skin. My night routine involves using a more active serum, and my night moisturiser is much richer than my day cream because at night our skin absorbs product best during the regeneration period of sleep. My current night serum is an active Vitamin A serum by Ultra MD A2 Anti Ageing Serum, a medical grade treatment that my skin loves! It smoothes texture and makes my skin radiant.

Signature scent?

Narcisco Rogriguez.

What’s in your makeup bag?

Chanel everything!

The best piece of beauty advice your mum gave you?

My Dad taught me to have 1 min cold rinse offs in the shower before getting out. It’s great for skin, circulation and reinvigorates my being.

Your first beauty related memory?

Growing up my family would spend the entire school Christmas holidays camping by the beach on the Central Coast. I have fond memories swimming, beach combing and scrubbing my sister’s back on the water’s edge of the ocean with wet sand and she would scrub mine in turn. We still love to do this today, I love a thorough body scrub!

The beauty product that everyone should know about?

Bioderma Cicabio Pommade. This product is excellent to use on damaged or stressed out skin to assist with healing and repairing. I apply this after peels or post laser treatments when skin is looking a little irritated and it immediately soothes the skin and relieves discomfort.

One lesson you wish you learnt when you were younger?

To wear sunscreen every day, rain hail or shine!

Beauty myth that you just don’t want to believe?

Vampire Facials and Snail’s slime!

Smokey eye or red lipstick?

Red lipstick – Every shade makes me feel sexy and powerful.

Mascara or bronzer?

Highlighter and lip balm because I like a healthy, dewy, fresh faced finish.

Morning routine?

Mornings are my time to give back to myself and set myself up for the day. I get up at 6am to meditate and then I go for a run around Centennial Park or train at the gym, shower and have a protein smoothie. I start work at 8am either with clients on a shoot or working on my business.

One thing you can’t live without?

Vitamin A. It is a powerhouse beauty ingredient that encourages healthy skin cell production, smoothes skin texture and fine lines, and helps to fade pigmentation.

Makeup brand you swear by?


Favourite salon?

Mine of course.

Favourite treatment?

Our Heart Chakra Facial with an Omnilux Booster. Our beautiful Heart Chakra Facial is our signature treatment and most requested experience at my salon. A relaxing French style facial blended with Eastern therapies, we nurture both inner and outer beauty. The facial involves a double cleanse, followed by a lactic acid peel to dissolve surface dry dead skin. No pore is safe from our expert eye during our thorough yet gentle extraction of blackheads, congestion and build up.

The unique Heart Chakra massage created by me focuses on the front and back of the heart chakra area where the front and back of your body are simultaneously massaged. Should you wish to indulge yourself in a complete body and spirit experience, you can be guided through a meditation during the 60-minute treatment. I aim to infuse the body and face with love and positive energy as well as helping maintain youthful, healthy skin that glows from within.

Favourite way to indulge?

A body massage from The Kahuna Centre.

If you were spending a day with your best girlfriends, what would you do?

Have lunch somewhere sunny, drink champagne and then probably end up dancing around my kitchen.

How do you keep fit?

I run around Centennial Park every morning. I also train at the SFS and with my boyfriend on the weekends.

Which beauty trend are you loving right now?

Customised manicures! I love giving my clients a custom blend nail colour (using one colour for the first coat, and another colour for the top coat) to give a bespoke nail shade that no one else is wearing!

Beauty idol/inspiration? All my fabulous clients.

Confidence is….
