My favourite thing about working in makeup is the ability to connect with people and their stories. I love that I have an hour just to chat about life, have a laugh, express my creative side and empower my clients so that they leave feeling beautiful and confident, but inside and out."
A note from Emily:
"Hey! I’m Emily, I’m an Aussie girl who’s ended up in the good old Manawatu! I’ve had an obsession with all things beauty for about 8 years now. I’ve been in and out of the beauty industry for the last 5 years and have found my way back and am now part of the amazing Makeup Etc team.
Whilst in Australia I was a key Skin Specialist and Makeup Artist at Mecca and ran a freelance business on the side. I adored this period in my life and it really grew me as a makeup artist and ignited my passion further.
As life goes, unexpectedly I fell in love and moved to New Zealand, where I was Counter Manager at YSL for a few months. I then stepped away from the beauty life to work full time in a marketing and communications role, but have never lost my love or passion for makeup.
