Do you want to be a more successful freelancer?

Most Makeup courses teach you plenty about how to APPLY makeup, about product choices and how to create different looks.


But what they don't teach (or if they do, they don't teach it very well) is how to run a successful, profitable, sustainable BUSINESS.


And let's face it...  as a freelance makeup artist or hairstylist, you ARE a business person, an entrepreneur, so it stands to reason that this is VITAL knowledge.


In this series of courses and masterclasses, I've combined my 20 years experience as a working freelance makeup artist with 10 years of educating makeup artists (including teaching Diploma of Specialised Makeup for 4 years), to create the BEST, most INDUSTRY RELEVANT courses for anyone wanting to get ahead in this exciting world of makeup and hairstyling.  All value, no fluff.

Client Testimonials

My vision is to inspire others to believe in themselves

and follow their dreams

I found Sue's Business Boost course extremely helpful and unlike other marketing courses, it's super relevant to our industry and job role, which made all the course so easier to digest, by being able to put the marketing training into context, and then implement it all, as I fully understood what tasks I have to carry out...

Sue, thank you for all your help with my portfolio and for being my business coach.  My return to the industry after such a long break has been so much less daunting because of your encouragement...  I love what you are doing for the industry. You bring ethics, professionalism and a passion for bringing out the best in artists. Anyone who chooses you as their coach or for mentoring in any way will be very, very blessed.

Danielle Robinson

Makeup Artist, Brisbane Australia

I thought I was cruising along with my business quite nicely, but soon learnt there was so much more I could do, little and big things, to help grow my business. Sue has a wealth of knowledge that she shares in a friendly, open, easy-to-understand manner. I would happily recommend her programme to anyone keen to expand their business. Her passion and drive is infectious. Thank you Sue.

I felt like I spent the first half of my career floundering.I couldn't get traction in the industry.  I wish I knew then what I know after doing this course.  Thank you Sue!
