Hi there! My name’s Sheree.
I spent way too many years working in a corporate job that i hated. I would dread getting out of bed every morning! Until one day i decided enough was enough, life is too short to not be doing what you love. So i enrolled myself into the Makeup Mastery Bootcamp and just a few short months later I am now living my absolute dream working as a Mentor with The Institute of Makeup! I now wake up every day loving what i do, and so passionate about helping others who are in a similar situation, change their life around and start doing something they love! I am here to show you that it is possible and it will happen! All you need to do is make that first step towards doing what makes you happy.

I’ve created a fool proof, easy to follow proven system to help get you to where you want to be….all you need to bring to the table is dedication and excitement!

For years now I’ve been living my dream career as a Makeup Artist helping people bring their best face forward and look their best.

Growing up I was always told of the importance of going to University and finding myself a ‘safe, secure job’….

And that’s exactly what I did….

After leaving high school I enrolled at University, and after 4 long and boring years and nearly $30,000 in debt later, I had my degree and landed my high paying job within the State Government, I thought I wanted (but secretly hated).

I was travelling by train to and from work sandwiched between other depressed workers (if I was lucky enough to get a seat) for over 2 hours there and another 2 hours back home……not the ideal lifestyle I had always dreamed of!

I had a real wake up call during my time there, when 2 of my colleagues resigned within a 6 month period with cancer…

It forced me to ask myself…is this where I want to spend the rest of my life?

The answering was a very big ‘NO’…

To make things worse I suffered continually bullying at the hands of my supervisor, which I thought I was ‘strong’ enough to handle, until I was diagnosed with severe anxiety.

My life had been turned upside down.

So, I finally took charge of my life, quit, and followed what was always in my heart – the desire to become a Makeup Artist.

Within 7 short months, I was doing makeup for big names such as Quicksilver, Cleo Magazine, Flight Centre and many more…

I also got my health, energy and confidence back because I was doing something that I LOVED!

Since that time I’ve had the opportunity to work with TV personalities, Sports Stars, Brides, Films, Television, Music Videos, Advertorials, Brochures, Magazines and travelled around Australia.

I now dedicate my time to helping others turn their dreams of becoming a successful makeup artist into a reality.
