To be a mother is to be a warrior!
First and foremost she is a mother of three, personal assistant, runs her own businesses, and is a model, traveller, and motivator well known in the creative industry. How does she do it? Julz gave me some tips while we ventured in a hired convertible and chose spots around the island of Waikiki, Oahu for our shoot, ending the day with drinks and an equally gorgeous sunset.
SbB: When did you know a career in beauty was for you?
L: I’ve always had an interest of beauty/make-up. As young as 4 years old; I remember standing in front of the beauty section and would not move until my mum brought me make-up.
While I was studying beauty therapy, I had an international make-up artist recommended to pursue further into make-up.
SbB: What prompted you to becoming a freelance beautician and masseuse?
L: When my dermatologist consultation was not sufficient enough for me. My curiosity gained a perfect opportunity to educate others of their self-worth and care.
SbB: Today’s woman is busier than ever. You’re a prime example! What is the easiest/quickest way to turn a day/work look into something that works for night out?
L: Glam eyes (darkening the outer corners of your eyes) and red lipstick.
SbB: How do you approach a style-conscious women of “a certain age” who wish to remain current but fear looking as if they’re trying too hard. What are some comfort-zone-friendly ways to rock the latest trends?
L: Go subtle; use natural tone colours and false eye lashes.
SbB: Speaking of age appropriateness, let’s consider the flip-side. Is there an age you, as a makeup-artist and mother, consider too soon for girls to begin wearing makeup on a regular basis?
L: I believe from 17 years old is reasonable on a regular basis.
Teenagers need to preserve their youthful skin.
Unless you do dancing and have an exceptional skincare regime.

L: Bold; defined eyebrows and flawless bronzed skin.
SbB: What three makeup item should no woman leave home without?
L: Moisturiser, brow promenade and lipgloss.
SbB: Come the weekend, what’s your favourite thing to do?
