On the surface, the beauty industry seems overly glamorous and plastic and is often criticised as being superficial. At the roots, beauty is all about self-confidence. Beauty has little to do with how that red lipstick makes you look – it’s how that red lipstick makes you feel. I spoke to four industry professionals who shared with me their passion for beauty and making people feel their best.
Erin Norden, Owner of Clean Beauty Market
With her calming and personable nature, it was no surprise when Erin told me she enjoys being able to connect with people at her store, Clean Beauty Market. “Even though it sounds a bit silly when you talk about products, it’s actually really powerful when you help people find things that improve their confidence. It makes people quite happy when they find products that they love,” she says.
Erin’s must-haves: Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm, Kjaer Weis Lipgloss, Osea Cleansing Milk, Hynt Beauty Concealer.
Signature look: an even base, a hint of mascara and natural-looking brows.

To kick off my first blog post of 2018, I thought I would share my haul from Clean Beauty Market – a beautiful store located on the Gold Coast which sells non-toxic and ethical products.

When I arrived I was greeted by the lovely Erin who is the owner of Clean Beauty Market. Erin is so knowledgable and was really helpful at picking out my makeup shades for me. The space itself is beautiful, light and clean with all products laid out and easy to navigate. There is a really nice vibe in the store that makes you want to hang around all day.

Scent is such a powerful thing. I love fragrances because they have the ability to encapsulate a moment in time. A memory. An emotion. Just one whiff of a fragrance can teleport you to years gone by and paint the most vivid image in your mind; perhaps even remind you of somebody.
