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.

If you walk around almost anywhere in Australia right now the most heard phrase would probably be, “it’s bloody cold!” A few degree drops in temperature sends us into meltdown. I personally love this weather but I’ll admit it does take a toll on the skin and can make you look a little dull.
