A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Posted in Interviews, Skin, Style on February 28, 2017 by


“What does beauty mean to you?”

That is one of the most common questions I’m asked.

The truth is there is no single – or correct – definition of beauty. Beauty is subjective and can be found in many different things.

Personally, when it comes to beauty, I believe there is perfection in imperfections. I believe in not wanting to look like anybody else. I believe in going fiercely out into the world as your true authentic self to help others. I believe in having a voice and making it f*&%ing count.

When I left my Beauty Editor career at InStyle magazine to launch Gritty Pretty – a website dedicated to the democratisation of beauty – I had no idea of what Gritty Pretty would go on to become or the incredible audience of women who would inspire me daily.

I also never would have imagined I would go on to front MYER’s beauty campaign, #HereIAm (which was revealed today and you will see more of over the next three weeks). What I do know is that I’m immensely proud to be the face of this beauty campaign, which I think is much more than skin deep.

Whoever you are, wherever you may be, you deserve to feel confident. You are unique. I am unique. We all are. Our differences are what makes us beautiful that’s why I embrace mine and use these beauty products to enhance them. It’s my way of saying to the world, “Here I am, this is me.”

Won’t you join me?

I’ll be hosting beauty workshops at Myer Melbourne (Saturday 4 March 1pm – 2pm) and Myer Sydney (Saturday 18 March 1pm – 2pm).

Grab your girlfriends and book your tickets here. See you there!
